ID CVE-2007-1388
Summary The do_ipv6_setsockopt function in net/ipv6/ipv6_sockglue.c in Linux kernel before 2.6.20, 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.

    description This kernel update fixes the following security problems : - CVE-2007-1000 A NULL pointer dereference in the IPv6 sockopt handling can be used by local attackers to read arbitrary kernel memory and so gain access to private information. - CVE-2007-1388 A NULL pointer dereference could be used by local attackers to cause a Oops / crash of the machine. - CVE-2007-1592 A possible double free in the ipv6/flowlabel handling was fixed. - CVE-2007-1357 A remote denial of service attack in the AppleTalk protocol handler was fixed. This attack is only possible on the local subnet, and requires the AppleTalk protocol module to be loaded (which is not done by default). and the following non security bugs : - patches.fixes/visor_write_race.patch: fix race allowing overstepping memory limit in visor_write (Mainline: 2.6.21) - patches.drivers/libata-ide-via-add-PCI-IDs: via82cxxx/pata_via: backport PCI IDs (254158). - libata: implement HDIO_GET_IDENTITY (255413). - sata_sil24: Add Adaptec 1220SA PCI ID. (Mainline: 2.6.21) - ide: backport hpt366 from devel tree (244502). - mm: fix madvise infinine loop (248167). - libata: hardreset on SERR_INTERNAL (241334). - limited WPA support for prism54 (207944) - jmicron: match class instead of function number (224784, 207707) - ahci: RAID mode SATA patch for Intel ICH9M (Mainline: 2.6.21) - libata: blacklist FUJITSU MHT2060BH for NCQ (Mainline: 2.6.21) - libata: add missing PM callbacks. (Mainline: 2.6.20) - patches.fixes/nfs-readdir-timestamp: Set meaningful value for fattr->time_start in readdirplus results. (244967). - patches.fixes/usb_volito.patch: wacom volito tablet not working (#248832). - patches.fixes/965-fix: fix detection of aperture size versus GTT size on G965 (#258013). - patches.fixes/sbp2-MODE_SENSE-fix.diff: use proper MODE SENSE, fixes recognition of device properties (261086) - patches.fixes/ipt_CLUSTERIP_refcnt_fix: ipv4/netfilter/ipt_CLUSTERIP.c - refcnt fix (238646) - patches.fixes/reiserfs-fix-vs-13060.diff: reiserfs: fix corruption with vs-13060 (257735). - patches.drivers/ati-rs400_200-480-disable-msi: pci-quirks: disable MSI on RS400-200 and RS480 (263893). - patches.drivers/libata-ahci-ignore-interr-on-SB600: ahci.c: walkaround for SB600 SATA internal error issue (#264792). Furthermore, CONFIG_USB_DEVICEFS has been re-enabled to allow use of USB in legacy applications like VMware. (#210899).

  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2007-0169.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 IPv6 socket option handling that allowed a local user to read arbitrary kernel memory (CVE-2007-1000, Important). * a flaw in the IPv6 socket option handling that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (CVE-2007-1388, Important). * a flaw in the utrace support that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service (CVE-2007-0771, Important). In addition to the security issues described above, a fix for a memory leak in the audit subsystem and a fix for a data corruption bug on s390 systems have been included. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 users are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which are not vulnerable to these issues.

    description Philipp Richter discovered that the AppleTalk protocol handler did not sufficiently verify the length of packets. By sending a crafted AppleTalk packet, a remote attacker could exploit this to crash the kernel. (CVE-2007-1357) Gabriel Campana discovered that the do_ipv6_setsockopt() function did not sufficiently verifiy option values for IPV6_RTHDR. A local attacker could exploit this to trigger a kernel crash. (CVE-2007-1388) A Denial of Service vulnerability was discovered in the nfnetlink_log() netfilter function. A remote attacker could exploit this to trigger a kernel crash. (CVE-2007-1496) The connection tracking module for IPv6 did not properly handle the status field when reassembling fragmented packets, so that the final packet always had the 'established' state. A remote attacker could exploit this to bypass intended firewall rules. (CVE-2007-1497) Masayuki Nakagawa discovered an error in the flowlabel handling of IPv6 network sockets. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the kernel. (CVE-2007-1592) The do_dccp_getsockopt() function did not sufficiently verify the optlen argument. A local attacker could exploit this to read kernel memory (which might expose sensitive data) or cause a kernel crash. This only affects Ubuntu 7.04. (CVE-2007-1730) The IPv4 and DECnet network protocol handlers incorrectly declared an array variable so that it became smaller than intended. By sending crafted packets over a netlink socket, a local attacker could exploit this to crash the kernel. (CVE-2007-2172). 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 Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 6.10 / 7.04 : linux-source-2.6.15/2.6.17/2.6.20 vulnerabilities (USN-464-1)
  • 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
