    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-2007-0005 Daniel Roethlisberger discovered two buffer overflows in the cm4040 driver for the Omnikey CardMan 4040 device. A local user or malicious device could exploit this to execute arbitrary code in kernel space. - 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).

  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2007-0099.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix security issues and bugs in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 kernel are now available. This update 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 following security issues : * a flaw in the key serial number collision avoidance algorithm of the keyctl subsystem that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (CVE-2007-0006, Important) * a flaw in the Omnikey CardMan 4040 driver that allowed a local user to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges. In order to exploit this issue, the Omnikey CardMan 4040 PCMCIA card must be present and the local user must have access rights to the character device created by the driver. (CVE-2007-0005, Moderate) * a flaw in the core-dump handling that allowed a local user to create core dumps from unreadable binaries via PT_INTERP. (CVE-2007-0958, Low) In addition to the security issues described above, a fix for a kernel panic in the powernow-k8 module, and a fix for a kernel panic when booting the Xen domain-0 on system with large memory installations have been included. Red Hat would like to thank Daniel Roethlisberger for reporting an issue fixed in this erratum. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 users are advised to upgrade their kernels to the packages associated with their machine architecture and configurations as listed in this erratum.

  • NASL family Mandriva Local Security Checks
    NASL id MANDRAKE_MDKSA-2007-078.NASL
    description Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux 2.6 kernel : When SELinux hooks are enabled, the kernel could allow a local user to cause a DoS (crash) via a malformed file stream that triggers a NULL pointer derefernece (CVE-2006-6056). Multiple buffer overflows in the (1) read and (2) write handlers in the Omnikey CardMan 4040 driver in the Linux kernel before 2.6.21-rc3 allow local users to gain privileges. (CVE-2007-0005) The Linux kernel version 2.6.13 to 2.6.20.1 allowed a remote attacker to cause a DoS (oops) via a crafted NFSACL2 ACCESS request that triggered a free of an incorrect pointer (CVE-2007-0772). A local user could read unreadable binaries by using the interpreter (PT_INTERP) functionality and triggering a core dump; a variant of CVE-2004-1073 (CVE-2007-0958). The ipv6_getsockopt_sticky function in net/ipv6/ipv6_sockglue.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.20.2 allows local users to read arbitrary kernel memory via certain getsockopt calls that trigger a NULL dereference. (CVE-2007-1000) Buffer overflow in the bufprint function in capiutil.c in libcapi, as used in Linux kernel 2.6.9 to 2.6.20 and isdn4k-utils, allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly gain privileges via a crafted CAPI packet. (CVE-2007-1217) The do_ipv6_setsockopt function in net/ipv6/ipv6_sockglue.c in Linux kernel 2.6.17, and possibly other versions, allows local users to cause a denial of service (oops) by calling setsockopt with the IPV6_RTHDR option name and possibly a zero option length or invalid option value, which triggers a NULL pointer dereference. (CVE-2007-1388) net/ipv6/tcp_ipv6.c in Linux kernel 2.4 and 2.6.x up to 2.6.21-rc3 inadvertently copies the ipv6_fl_socklist from a listening TCP socket to child sockets, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) or double-free by opening a listeing IPv6 socket, attaching a flow label, and connecting to that socket. (CVE-2007-1592) The provided packages are patched to fix these vulnerabilities. All users are encouraged to upgrade to these updated kernels immediately and reboot to effect the fixes. In addition to these security fixes, other fixes have been included such as : - Suspend to disk speed improvements - Add nmi watchdog support for core2 - Add atl1 driver - Update KVM - Add acer_acpi - Update asus_acpi - Fix suspend on r8169, i8259A - Fix suspend when using ondemand governor - Add ide acpi support - Add suspend/resume support for sata_nv chipsets. - USB: Let USB-Serial option driver handle anydata devices (#29066) - USB: Add PlayStation 2 Trance Vibrator driver - Fix bogus delay loop in video/aty/mach64_ct.c - Add MCP61 support (#29398) - USB: fix floppy drive SAMSUNG SFD-321U/EP detected 8 times bug - Improve keyboard handling on Apple MacBooks - Add -latest patch - Workaround a possible binutils bug in smp alternatives - Add forcedeth support - Fix potential deadlock in driver core (USB hangs at boot time #24683) To update your kernel, please follow the directions located at : http://www.mandriva.com/en/security/kernelupdate

    description These new kernel packages contain fixes for the security issues described below : - a flaw in the connection tracking support for SCTP that allowed a remote user to cause a denial of service by dereferencing a NULL pointer. (CVE-2007-2876, Important) - a flaw in the mount handling routine for 64-bit systems that allowed a local user to cause denial of service (crash). (CVE-2006-7203, Important) - a flaw in the IPv4 forwarding base that allowed a local user to cause an out-of-bounds access. (CVE-2007-2172, Important) - a flaw in the PPP over Ethernet implementation that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by creating a socket using connect and then releasing it before the PPPIOCGCHAN ioctl has been called. (CVE-2007-2525, Important) - a flaw in the fput ioctl handling of 32-bit applications running on 64-bit platforms that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (panic). (CVE-2007-0773, Important) - a flaw in the NFS locking daemon that allowed a local user to cause denial of service (deadlock). (CVE-2006-5158, Moderate) - a flaw in the sysfs_readdir function that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service by dereferencing a NULL pointer. (CVE-2007-3104, Moderate) - a flaw in the core-dump handling that allowed a local user to create core dumps from unreadable binaries via PT_INTERP. (CVE-2007-0958, Low) - a flaw in the Bluetooth subsystem that allowed a local user to trigger an information leak. (CVE-2007-1353, Low) In addition, the following bugs were addressed : - the NFS could recurse on the same spinlock. Also, NFS, under certain conditions, did not completely clean up Posix locks on a file close, leading to mount failures. - the 32bit compatibility didn't return to userspace correct values for the rt_sigtimedwait system call. - the count for unused inodes could be incorrect at times, resulting in dirty data not being written to disk in a timely manner. - the cciss driver had an incorrect disk size calculation (off-by-one error) which prevented disk dumps. NOTE1: From The Upstream Vendors release notes 'During PCI probing, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Update 5 attempts to use information obtained from MCFG (memory-mapped PCI configuration space). On AMD-systems, this type of access does not work on some buses, as the kernel cannot parse the MCFG table. To work around this, add the parameter pci=conf1 or pci=nommconf on the kernel boot line in /etc/grub.conf. For example : title Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (2.6.9-42.0.2.EL) root (hd0,0) kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-42.0.2.EL ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet pci=conf1 initrd /initrd-2.6.9-42.0.2.EL.img Doing this instructs the kernel to use PCI Conf1 access instead of MCFG-based access.' NOTE2: From The Upstream Vendors Knowledge Base 'Why did the ordering of my NIC devices change in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.5? The 2.6.9-55 version of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 kernel (Update 5) reverts to the 2.4 ordering of network interface cards (NICs) on certain systems. Note that if the 'HWADDR=MAC ADDRESS' line is present in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethX files, the NIC ordering will not change. To restore the original 2.6 ordering, which is different from the 2.4 ordering, boot with the option pci=nobfsort '

    description The kernel key management code did not correctly handle key reuse. A local attacker could create many key requests, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2007-0006) The kernel NFS code did not correctly validate NFSACL2 ACCESS requests. If a system was serving NFS mounts, a remote attacker could send a specially crafted packet, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2007-0772) When dumping core, the kernel did not correctly handle PT_INTERP processes. A local attacker could create situations where they could read the contents of otherwise unreadable executable programs. (CVE-2007-0958). 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.

  • NASL family Mandriva Local Security Checks
    NASL id MANDRAKE_MDKSA-2007-060.NASL
    description Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux 2.6 kernel : The 2.6.17 kernel and earlier, when running on IA64 and SPARC platforms would allow a local user to cause a DoS (crash) via a malformed ELF file (CVE-2006-4538). The mincore function in the Linux kernel did not properly lock access to user space, which has unspecified impact and attack vectors, possibly related to a deadlock (CVE-2006-4814). An unspecified vulnerability in the listxattr system call, when a 'bad inode' is present, could allow a local user to cause a DoS (data corruption) and possibly gain privileges via unknown vectors (CVE-2006-5753). The zlib_inflate function allows local users to cause a crash via a malformed filesystem that uses zlib compression that triggers memory corruption (CVE-2006-5823). The ext3fs_dirhash function could allow local users to cause a DoS (crash) via an ext3 stream with malformed data structures (CVE-2006-6053). When SELinux hooks are enabled, the kernel could allow a local user to cause a DoS (crash) via a malformed file stream that triggers a NULL pointer derefernece (CVE-2006-6056). The key serial number collision avoidance code in the key_alloc_serial function in kernels 2.6.9 up to 2.6.20 allows local users to cause a crash via vectors thatr trigger a null dereference (CVE-2007-0006). The Linux kernel version 2.6.13 to 2.6.20.1 allowed a remote attacker to cause a DoS (oops) via a crafted NFSACL2 ACCESS request that triggered a free of an incorrect pointer (CVE-2007-0772). A local user could read unreadable binaries by using the interpreter (PT_INTERP) functionality and triggering a core dump; a variant of CVE-2004-1073 (CVE-2007-0958). The provided packages are patched to fix these vulnerabilities. All users are encouraged to upgrade to these updated kernels immediately and reboot to effect the fixes. In addition to these security fixes, other fixes have been included such as : - add PCI IDs for cciss driver (HP ML370G5 / DL360G5) - fixed a mssive SCSI reset on megasas (Dell PE2960) - increased port-reset completion delay for HP controllers (HP ML350) - NUMA rnage fixes for x86_64 - various netfilter fixes To update your kernel, please follow the directions located at : http://www.mandriva.com/en/security/kernelupdate

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2007:0488 : Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues and bugs 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 connection tracking support for SCTP that allowed a remote user to cause a denial of service by dereferencing a NULL pointer. (CVE-2007-2876, Important) * a flaw in the mount handling routine for 64-bit systems that allowed a local user to cause denial of service (crash). (CVE-2006-7203, Important) * a flaw in the IPv4 forwarding base that allowed a local user to cause an out-of-bounds access. (CVE-2007-2172, Important) * a flaw in the PPP over Ethernet implementation that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by creating a socket using connect and then releasing it before the PPPIOCGCHAN ioctl has been called. (CVE-2007-2525, Important) * a flaw in the fput ioctl handling of 32-bit applications running on 64-bit platforms that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (panic). (CVE-2007-0773, Important) * a flaw in the NFS locking daemon that allowed a local user to cause denial of service (deadlock). (CVE-2006-5158, Moderate) * a flaw in the sysfs_readdir function that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service by dereferencing a NULL pointer. (CVE-2007-3104, Moderate) * a flaw in the core-dump handling that allowed a local user to create core dumps from unreadable binaries via PT_INTERP. (CVE-2007-0958, Low) * a flaw in the Bluetooth subsystem that allowed a local user to trigger an information leak. (CVE-2007-1353, Low) In addition, the following bugs were addressed : * the NFS could recurse on the same spinlock. Also, NFS, under certain conditions, did not completely clean up Posix locks on a file close, leading to mount failures. * the 32bit compatibility didn't return to userspace correct values for the rt_sigtimedwait system call. * the count for unused inodes could be incorrect at times, resulting in dirty data not being written to disk in a timely manner. * the cciss driver had an incorrect disk size calculation (off-by-one error) which prevented disk dumps. Red Hat would like to thank Ilja van Sprundel and the OpenVZ Linux kernel team 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.
