ID CVE-2006-6535
Summary The dev_queue_xmit function in Linux kernel 2.6 can fail before calling the local_bh_disable function, which could lead to data corruption and "node lockups." NOTE: it is not clear whether this issue is exploitable.

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2007:0014 : 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 get_fdb_entries function of the network bridging support that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (crash) or allow a potential privilege escalation (CVE-2006-5751, Important) * an information leak in the _block_prepare_write function that allowed a local user to read kernel memory (CVE-2006-4813, Important) * an information leak in the copy_from_user() implementation on s390 and s390x platforms that allowed a local user to read kernel memory (CVE-2006-5174, Important) * a flaw in the handling of /proc/net/ip6_flowlabel that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) (CVE-2006-5619, Important) * a flaw in the AIO handling that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (panic) (CVE-2006-5754, Important) * a race condition in the mincore system core that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (system hang) (CVE-2006-4814, Moderate) * a flaw in the ELF handling on ia64 and sparc architectures which triggered a cross-region memory mapping and allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (CVE-2006-4538, Moderate) * a flaw in the dev_queue_xmit function of the network subsystem that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (data corruption) (CVE-2006-6535, Moderate) * a flaw in the handling of CAPI messages over Bluetooth that allowed a remote system to cause a denial of service or potential code execution. This flaw is only exploitable if a privileged user establishes a connection to a malicious remote device (CVE-2006-6106, Moderate) * a flaw in the listxattr system call that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (data corruption) or potential privilege escalation. To successfully exploit this flaw the existence of a bad inode is required first (CVE-2006-5753, Moderate) * a flaw in the __find_get_block_slow function that allowed a local privileged user to cause a denial of service (CVE-2006-5757, Low) * various flaws in the supported filesystems that allowed a local privileged user to cause a denial of service (CVE-2006-5823, CVE-2006-6053, CVE-2006-6054, CVE-2006-6056, Low) In addition to the security issues described above, fixes for the following bugs were included : * initialization error of the tg3 driver with some BCM5703x network card * a memory leak in the audit subsystem * x86_64 nmi watchdog timeout is too short * ext2/3 directory reads fail intermittently Red Hat would like to thank Dmitriy Monakhov and Kostantin Khorenko 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 architecture and configurations as listed in this erratum.

    description CVE-2006-6060 CVE-2006-6106 CVE-2006-6535 CVE-2007-0958 CVE-2007-1357 CVE-2007-1592 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. This update also fixes a regression in the smbfs subsystem which was introduced in DSA-1233which caused symlinks to be interpreted as regular files. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2005-4811 David Gibson reported an issue in the hugepage code which could permit a local DoS (system crash) on appropriately configured systems. - CVE-2006-4814 Doug Chapman discovered a potential local DoS (deadlock) in the mincore function caused by improper lock handling. - CVE-2006-4623 Ang Way Chuang reported a remote DoS (crash) in the dvb driver which can be triggered by a ULE package with an SNDU length of 0. - CVE-2006-5753 Eric Sandeen provided a fix for a local memory corruption vulnerability resulting from a misinterpretation of return values when operating on inodes which have been marked bad. - CVE-2006-5754 Darrick Wong discovered a local DoS (crash) vulnerability resulting from the incorrect initialization of 'nr_pages' in aio_setup_ring(). - CVE-2006-5757 LMH reported a potential local DoS which could be exploited by a malicious user with the privileges to mount and read a corrupted iso9660 filesystem. - CVE-2006-6053 LMH reported a potential local DoS which could be exploited by a malicious user with the privileges to mount and read a corrupted ext3 filesystem. - CVE-2006-6056 LMH reported a potential local DoS which could be exploited by a malicious user with the privileges to mount and read a corrupted hfs filesystem on systems with SELinux hooks enabled (Debian does not enable SELinux by default). - CVE-2006-6060 LMH reported a potential local DoS (infinite loop) which could be exploited by a malicious user with the privileges to mount and read a corrupted NTFS filesystem. - CVE-2006-6106 Marcel Holtman discovered multiple buffer overflows in the Bluetooth subsystem which can be used to trigger a remote DoS (crash) and potentially execute arbitrary code. - CVE-2006-6535 Kostantin Khorenko discovered an invalid error path in dev_queue_xmit() which could be exploited by a local user to cause data corruption. - CVE-2007-0958 Santosh Eraniose reported a vulnerability that allows local users to read otherwise unreadable files by triggering a core dump while using PT_INTERP. This is related to CVE-2004-1073. - CVE-2007-1357 Jean Delvare reported a vulnerability in the appletalk subsystem. Systems with the appletalk module loaded can be triggered to crash by other systems on the local network via a malformed frame. - CVE-2007-1592 Masayuki Nakagawa discovered that flow labels were inadvertently being shared between listening sockets and child sockets. This defect can be exploited by local users to cause a DoS (Oops).
