    description This advisory covers the S/390 components of the recent security update for the Linux 2.6.8 kernel that were missing due to technical problems. For reference, please see the text of the original advisory. Several security related problems have been discovered in the Linux kernel which may lead to a denial of service or even the execution of arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2004-2660 Toshihiro Iwamoto discovered a memory leak in the handling of direct I/O writes that allows local users to cause a denial of service. - CVE-2005-4798 A buffer overflow in NFS readlink handling allows a malicious remote server to cause a denial of service. - CVE-2006-1052 Stephen Smalley discovered a bug in the SELinux ptrace handling that allows local users with ptrace permissions to change the tracer SID to the SID of another process. - CVE-2006-1343 Pavel Kankovsky discovered an information leak in the getsockopt system call which can be exploited by a local program to leak potentially sensitive memory to userspace. - CVE-2006-1528 Douglas Gilbert reported a bug in the sg driver that allows local users to cause a denial of service by performing direct I/O transfers from the sg driver to memory mapped I/O space. - CVE-2006-1855 Mattia Belletti noticed that certain debugging code left in the process management code could be exploited by a local attacker to cause a denial of service. - CVE-2006-1856 Kostik Belousov discovered a missing LSM file_permission check in the readv and writev functions which might allow attackers to bypass intended access restrictions. - CVE-2006-2444 Patrick McHardy discovered a bug in the SNMP NAT helper that allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service. - CVE-2006-2446 A race condition in the socket buffer handling allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service. - CVE-2006-2935 Diego Calleja Garcia discovered a buffer overflow in the DVD handling code that could be exploited by a specially crafted DVD USB storage device to execute arbitrary code. - CVE-2006-2936 A bug in the serial USB driver has been discovered that could be exploited by a custom made USB serial adapter to consume arbitrary amounts of memory. - CVE-2006-3468 James McKenzie discovered a denial of service vulnerability in the NFS driver. When exporting an ext3 file system over NFS, a remote attacker could exploit this to trigger a file system panic by sending a specially crafted UDP packet. - CVE-2006-3745 Wei Wang discovered a bug in the SCTP implementation that allows local users to cause a denial of service and possibly gain root privileges. - CVE-2006-4093 Olof Johansson discovered that the kernel does not disable the HID0 bit on PowerPC 970 processors which could be exploited by a local attacker to cause a denial of service. - CVE-2006-4145 A bug in the Universal Disk Format (UDF) filesystem driver could be exploited by a local user to cause a denial of service. - CVE-2006-4535 David Miller reported a problem with the fix for CVE-2006-3745 that allows local users to crash the system via an SCTP socket with a certain SO_LINGER value. The following matrix explains which kernel version for which architecture fixes the problem mentioned above : stable (sarge) Source 2.6.8-16sarge5 Alpha architecture 2.6.8-16sarge5 AMD64 architecture 2.6.8-16sarge5 HP Precision architecture 2.6.8-6sarge5 Intel IA-32 architecture 2.6.8-16sarge5 Intel IA-64 architecture 2.6.8-14sarge5 Motorola 680x0 architecture 2.6.8-4sarge5 PowerPC architecture 2.6.8-12sarge5 IBM S/390 2.6.8-5sarge5 Sun Sparc architecture 2.6.8-15sarge5 FAI 1.9.1sarge4

  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DSA-1237.NASL
    description Several local and remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2005-4093 Olof Johansson reported a local DoS (Denial of Service) vulnerability on the PPC970 platform. Unprivileged users can hang the system by executing the 'attn' instruction, which was not being disabled at boot. - CVE-2006-4538 Kirill Korotaev reported a local DoS (Denial of Service) vulnerability on the ia64 and sparc architectures. A user could cause the system to crash by executing a malformed ELF binary due to insufficient verification of the memory layout. - CVE-2006-4997 ADLab Venustech Info Ltd reported a potential remote DoS (Denial of Service) vulnerability in the IP over ATM subsystem. A remote system could cause the system to crash by sending specially crafted packets that would trigger an attempt to free an already-freed pointer resulting in a system crash. - CVE-2006-5174 Martin Schwidefsky reported a potential leak of sensitive information on s390 systems. The copy_from_user function did not clear the remaining bytes of the kernel buffer after receiving a fault on the userspace address, resulting in a leak of uninitialized kernel memory. A local user could exploit this by appending to a file from a bad address. - CVE-2006-5649 Fabio Massimo Di Nitto reported a potential remote DoS (Denial of Service) vulnerability on powerpc systems. The alignment exception only checked the exception table for -EFAULT, not for other errors. This can be exploited by a local user to cause a system crash (panic). - CVE-2006-5871 Bill Allombert reported that various mount options are ignored by smbfs when UNIX extensions are enabled. This includes the uid, gid and mode options. Client systems would silently use the server-provided settings instead of honoring these options, changing the security model. This update includes a fix from Haroldo Gamal that forces the kernel to honor these mount options. Note that, since the current versions of smbmount always pass values for these options to the kernel, it is not currently possible to activate unix extensions by omitting mount options. However, this behavior is currently consistent with the current behavior of the next Debian release, 'etch'.

    title SuSE 10 Security Update : Linux kernel (x86_64) (ZYPP Patch Number 2096)

    NASL id UBUNTU_USN-346-1.NASL
    description A Denial of service vulnerability was reported in iptables' SCTP conntrack module. On computers which use this iptables module, a remote attacker could exploit this to trigger a kernel crash. (CVE-2006-2934) A buffer overflow has been discovered in the dvd_read_bca() function. By inserting a specially crafted DVD, USB stick, or similar automatically mounted removable device, a local user could crash the machine or potentially even execute arbitrary code with full root privileges. (CVE-2006-2935) The ftdi_sio driver for serial USB ports did not limit the amount of pending data to be written. A local user could exploit this to drain all available kernel memory and thus render the system unusable. (CVE-2006-2936) James McKenzie discovered a Denial of Service vulnerability in the NFS driver. When exporting an ext3 file system over NFS, a remote attacker could exploit this to trigger a file system panic by sending a specially crafted UDP packet. (CVE-2006-3468) Wei Wang of McAfee Avert Labs discovered a buffer overflow in the sctp_make_abort_user() function of iptables' SCTP module. On computers which use this module, a local attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with root privileges. (CVE-2006-3745) Olof Johansson discovered that the kernel did not disable the 'HID0' bit on PowerPC 970 processors so that the ATTN instruction was enabled. A local user could exploit this to crash the kernel. This flaw only affects the powerpc architecture. (CVE-2006-4093) The UDF file system does not handle extends larger than 1 GB, but did not check for this restriction on truncating files. A local user could exploit this to crash the kernel. (CVE-2006-4145). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    title SuSE 10 Security Update : Linux kernel (i386) (ZYPP Patch Number 2097)
  • NASL family CentOS Local Security Checks
    NASL id CENTOS_RHSA-2006-0689.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 kernel are now available. This security advisory has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. The Linux kernel handles the basic functions of the operating system. These new kernel packages contain fixes for the security issues described below : * a flaw in the SCTP support that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (crash) with a specific SO_LINGER value. (CVE-2006-4535, Important) * a flaw in the hugepage table support that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (crash). (CVE-2005-4811, Important) * a flaw in the mprotect system call that allowed setting write permission for a read-only attachment of shared memory. (CVE-2006-2071, Moderate) * a flaw in HID0[31] (en_attn) register handling on PowerPC 970 systems that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service. (crash) (CVE-2006-4093, Moderate) * a flaw in the perfmon support of Itanium systems that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service by consuming all file descriptors. (CVE-2006-3741, Moderate) * a flaw in the ATM subsystem. On systems with installed ATM hardware and configured ATM support, a remote user could cause a denial of service (panic) by accessing socket buffers memory after freeing them. (CVE-2006-4997, Moderate) * a flaw in the DVB subsystem. On systems with installed DVB hardware and configured DVB support, a remote user could cause a denial of service (panic) by sending a ULE SNDU packet with length of 0. (CVE-2006-4623, Low) * an information leak in the network subsystem that possibly allowed a local user to read sensitive data from kernel memory. (CVE-2006-0039, Low) In addition, two bugfixes for the IPW-2200 wireless driver were included. The first one ensures that wireless management applications correctly identify IPW-2200 controlled devices, while the second fix ensures that DHCP requests using the IPW-2200 operate correctly. Red Hat would like to thank Olof Johansson, Stephane Eranian and Solar Designer for reporting issues fixed in this erratum. All Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 users are advised to upgrade their kernels to the packages associated with their machine architectures and configurations as listed in this erratum.
