ID CVE-2008-3528
Summary The error-reporting functionality in (1) fs/ext2/dir.c, (2) fs/ext3/dir.c, and possibly (3) fs/ext4/dir.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.26.5 does not limit the number of printk console messages that report directory corruption, which allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (temporary system hang) by mounting a filesystem that has corrupted dir->i_size and dir->i_blocks values and performing (a) read or (b) write operations. NOTE: there are limited scenarios in which this crosses privilege boundaries.

CWE CWE-264
CAPEC
  • Accessing, Modifying or Executing Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's configuration that allows an attacker to either directly access an executable file, for example through shell access; or in a possible worst case allows an attacker to upload a file and then execute it. Web servers, ftp servers, and message oriented middleware systems which have many integration points are particularly vulnerable, because both the programmers and the administrators must be in synch regarding the interfaces and the correct privileges for each interface.
  • Leverage Executable Code in Non-Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's trust in configuration and resource files, when the executable loads the resource (such as an image file or configuration file) the attacker has modified the file to either execute malicious code directly or manipulate the target process (e.g. application server) to execute based on the malicious configuration parameters. Since systems are increasingly interrelated mashing up resources from local and remote sources the possibility of this attack occurring is high. The attack can be directed at a client system, such as causing buffer overrun through loading seemingly benign image files, as in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-028 where specially crafted JPEG files could cause a buffer overrun once loaded into the browser. Another example targets clients reading pdf files. In this case the attacker simply appends javascript to the end of a legitimate url for a pdf (http://www.gnucitizen.org/blog/danger-danger-danger/) http://path/to/pdf/file.pdf#whatever_name_you_want=javascript:your_code_here The client assumes that they are reading a pdf, but the attacker has modified the resource and loaded executable javascript into the client's browser process. The attack can also target server processes. The attacker edits the resource or configuration file, for example a web.xml file used to configure security permissions for a J2EE app server, adding role name "public" grants all users with the public role the ability to use the administration functionality. The server trusts its configuration file to be correct, but when they are manipulated, the attacker gains full control.
  • Blue Boxing
    This type of attack against older telephone switches and trunks has been around for decades. A tone is sent by an adversary to impersonate a supervisor signal which has the effect of rerouting or usurping command of the line. While the US infrastructure proper may not contain widespread vulnerabilities to this type of attack, many companies are connected globally through call centers and business process outsourcing. These international systems may be operated in countries which have not upgraded Telco infrastructure and so are vulnerable to Blue boxing. Blue boxing is a result of failure on the part of the system to enforce strong authorization for administrative functions. While the infrastructure is different than standard current applications like web applications, there are historical lessons to be learned to upgrade the access control for administrative functions.
  • Restful Privilege Elevation
    Rest uses standard HTTP (Get, Put, Delete) style permissions methods, but these are not necessarily correlated generally with back end programs. Strict interpretation of HTTP get methods means that these HTTP Get services should not be used to delete information on the server, but there is no access control mechanism to back up this logic. This means that unless the services are properly ACL'd and the application's service implementation are following these guidelines then an HTTP request can easily execute a delete or update on the server side. The attacker identifies a HTTP Get URL such as http://victimsite/updateOrder, which calls out to a program to update orders on a database or other resource. The URL is not idempotent so the request can be submitted multiple times by the attacker, additionally, the attacker may be able to exploit the URL published as a Get method that actually performs updates (instead of merely retrieving data). This may result in malicious or inadvertent altering of data on the server.
  • Target Programs with Elevated Privileges
    This attack targets programs running with elevated privileges. The attacker would try to leverage a bug in the running program and get arbitrary code to execute with elevated privileges. For instance an attacker would look for programs that write to the system directories or registry keys (such as HKLM, which stores a number of critical Windows environment variables). These programs are typically running with elevated privileges and have usually not been designed with security in mind. Such programs are excellent exploit targets because they yield lots of power when they break. The malicious user try to execute its code at the same level as a privileged system call.
  • Manipulating Input to File System Calls
    An attacker manipulates inputs to the target software which the target software passes to file system calls in the OS. The goal is to gain access to, and perhaps modify, areas of the file system that the target software did not intend to be accessible.

Third-party library update for ntp. The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize a computer's time with a referenced time source. ESXi 3.5 and ESXi 4.0 have a ntp client that is affected by the following security issue. Note that the same security issue is present in the ESX Service Console as described in section d. of this advisory. A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the ntpd daemon's NTPv4 authentication code. If ntpd was configured to use public key cryptography for NTP packet authentication, a remote attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted request packet that could crash ntpd or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the 'ntp' user. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-1252 to this issue. The NTP security issue identified by CVE-2009-0159 is not relevant for ESXi 3.5 and ESXi 4.0. d. Service Console update for ntp Service Console package ntp updated to version ntp-4.2.2pl-9el5_3.2 The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize a computer's time with a referenced time source. The Service Console present in ESX is affected by the following security issues. A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the ntpd daemon's NTPv4 authentication code. If ntpd was configured to use public key cryptography for NTP packet authentication, a remote attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted request packet that could crash ntpd or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the 'ntp' user. NTP authentication is not enabled by default on the Service Console. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-1252 to this issue. A buffer overflow flaw was found in the ntpq diagnostic command. A malicious, remote server could send a specially crafted reply to an ntpq request that could crash ntpq or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the ntpq command. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-0159 to this issue. e. Updated Service Console package kernel Updated Service Console package kernel addresses the security issues listed below. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2008-3528, CVE-2008-5700, CVE-2009-0028, CVE-2009-0269, CVE-2009-0322, CVE-2009-0675, CVE-2009-0676, CVE-2009-0778 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-128.1.6. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2008-4307, CVE-2009-0834, CVE-2009-1337, CVE-2009-0787, CVE-2009-1336 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-128.1.10.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2007-5966, CVE-2009-1385, CVE-2009-1388, CVE-2009-1389, CVE-2009-1895, CVE-2009-2406, CVE-2009-2407 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-128.4.1. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-2692, CVE-2009-2698 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-128.7.1. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-0745, CVE-2009-0746, CVE-2009-0747, CVE-2009-0748, CVE-2009-2847, CVE-2009-2848 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-164. f. Updated Service Console package python Service Console package Python update to version 2.4.3-24.el5. When the assert() system call was disabled, an input sanitization flaw was revealed in the Python string object implementation that led to a buffer overflow. The missing check for negative size values meant the Python memory allocator could allocate less memory than expected. This could result in arbitrary code execution with the Python interpreter's privileges. Multiple buffer and integer overflow flaws were found in the Python Unicode string processing and in the Python Unicode and string object implementations. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a denial of service. Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in the Python imageop module. If a Python application used the imageop module to process untrusted images, it could cause the application to disclose sensitive information, crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the Python interpreter's privileges. Multiple integer underflow and overflow flaws were found in the Python snprintf() wrapper implementation. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a denial of service (memory corruption). Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in various Python modules. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a denial of service. An integer signedness error, leading to a buffer overflow, was found in the Python zlib extension module. If a Python application requested the negative byte count be flushed for a decompression stream, it could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the Python interpreter's privileges. A flaw was discovered in the strxfrm() function of the Python locale module. Strings generated by this function were not properly NULL-terminated, which could possibly cause disclosure of data stored in the memory of a Python application using this function. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2007-2052 CVE-2007-4965 CVE-2008-1721 CVE-2008-1887 CVE-2008-2315 CVE-2008-3142 CVE-2008-3143 CVE-2008-3144 CVE-2008-4864 CVE-2008-5031 to these issues. g. Updated Service Console package bind Service Console package bind updated to version 9.3.6-4.P1.el5 The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) is an implementation of the Domain Name System (DNS) protocols. BIND includes a DNS server (named); a resolver library (routines for applications to use when interfacing with DNS); and tools for verifying that the DNS server is operating correctly. A flaw was found in the way BIND handles dynamic update message packets containing the 'ANY' record type. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted dynamic update packet that could cause named to exit with an assertion failure. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-0696 to this issue. h. Updated Service Console package libxml2 Service Console package libxml2 updated to version 2.6.26-2.1.2.8. libxml is a library for parsing and manipulating XML files. A Document Type Definition (DTD) defines the legal syntax (and also which elements can be used) for certain types of files, such as XML files. A stack overflow flaw was found in the way libxml processes the root XML document element definition in a DTD. A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted XML file, which once opened by a local, unsuspecting user, would lead to denial of service. Multiple use-after-free flaws were found in the way libxml parses the Notation and Enumeration attribute types. A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted XML file, which once opened by a local, unsuspecting user, would lead to denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-2414 and CVE-2009-2416 to these issues. i. Updated Service Console package curl Service Console package curl updated to version 7.15.5-2.1.el5_3.5 A cURL is affected by the previously published 'null prefix attack', caused by incorrect handling of NULL characters in X.509 certificates. If an attacker is able to get a carefully-crafted certificate signed by a trusted Certificate Authority, the attacker could use the certificate during a man-in-the-middle attack and potentially confuse cURL into accepting it by mistake. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2417 to this issue j. Updated Service Console package gnutls Service Console package gnutil updated to version 1.4.1-3.el5_3.5 A flaw was discovered in the way GnuTLS handles NULL characters in certain fields of X.509 certificates. If an attacker is able to get a carefully-crafted certificate signed by a Certificate Authority trusted by an application using GnuTLS, the attacker could use the certificate during a man-in-the-middle attack and potentially confuse the application into accepting it by mistake. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2730 to this issue

    description Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux 2.6 kernel : The error-reporting functionality in (1) fs/ext2/dir.c, (2) fs/ext3/dir.c, and possibly (3) fs/ext4/dir.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.26.5 does not limit the number of printk console messages that report directory corruption, which allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (temporary system hang) by mounting a filesystem that has corrupted dir->i_size and dir->i_blocks values and performing (a) read or (b) write operations. NOTE: there are limited scenarios in which this crosses privilege boundaries. (CVE-2008-3528) The i915 driver in (1) drivers/char/drm/i915_dma.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.24 on Debian GNU/Linux and (2) sys/dev/pci/drm/i915_drv.c in OpenBSD does not restrict the DRM_I915_HWS_ADDR ioctl to the Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) master, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a crafted ioctl call, related to absence of the DRM_MASTER and DRM_ROOT_ONLY flags in the ioctl's configuration. (CVE-2008-3831) The do_splice_from function in fs/splice.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27 does not reject file descriptors that have the O_APPEND flag set, which allows local users to bypass append mode and make arbitrary changes to other locations in the file. (CVE-2008-4554) Additionaly, a problem with TCP options ordering, which could manifest as connection problems with many websites (bug #43372), was solved, a number of fixes for Intel HDA were added, another number of fixes for issues on Asus EEE PC, Panasonic Let's Note, Acer One, Dell XPS, and others, were also added. Check package changelog for more information. To update your kernel, please follow the directions located at : http://www.mandriva.com/en/security/kernelupdate Update : The previous update included a patch which introduced a bug that would make the boot process to stop halfway in several machines. That patch has been removed in this new update, to avoid that problem.

    description This kernel update for SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 Service Pack 2 fixes various bugs and some security problems : - When creating a file, open()/creat() allowed the setgid bit to be set via the mode argument even when, due to the bsdgroups mount option or the file being created in a setgid directory, the new file's group is one which the user is not a member of. The local attacker could then use ftruncate() and memory-mapped I/O to turn the new file into an arbitrary binary and thus gain the privileges of this group, since these operations do not clear the setgid bit.'. (CVE-2008-4210) - The ext[234] filesystem code fails to properly handle corrupted data structures. With a mounted filesystem image or partition that have corrupted dir->i_size and dir->i_blocks, a user performing either a read or write operation on the mounted image or partition can lead to a possible denial of service by spamming the logfile. (CVE-2008-3528) - The S/390 ptrace code allowed local users to cause a denial of service (kernel panic) via the user-area-padding test from the ptrace testsuite in 31-bit mode, which triggers an invalid dereference. (CVE-2008-1514) - fs/direct-io.c in the dio subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly zero out the dio struct, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS), as demonstrated by a certain fio test. (CVE-2007-6716) - Added missing capability checks in sbni_ioctl(). (CVE-2008-3525) Also OCFS2 was updated to version v1.4.1-1. The full amount of changes can be reviewed in the RPM changelog.

    NASL id SUSE_KERNEL-5751.NASL
    description This kernel update fixes various bugs and also several security issues : CVE-2008-4576: Fixed a crash in SCTP INIT-ACK, on mismatch between SCTP AUTH availability. This might be exploited remotely for a denial of service (crash) attack. CVE-2008-3833: The generic_file_splice_write function in fs/splice.c in the Linux kernel does not properly strip setuid and setgid bits when there is a write to a file, which allows local users to gain the privileges of a different group, and obtain sensitive information or possibly have unspecified other impact, by splicing into an inode in order to create an executable file in a setgid directory. CVE-2008-4210: fs/open.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.22 does not properly strip setuid and setgid bits when there is a write to a file, which allows local users to gain the privileges of a different group, and obtain sensitive information or possibly have unspecified other impact, by creating an executable file in a setgid directory through the (1) truncate or (2) ftruncate function in conjunction with memory-mapped I/O. CVE-2008-4302: fs/splice.c in the splice subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.22.2 does not properly handle a failure of the add_to_page_cache_lru function, and subsequently attempts to unlock a page that was not locked, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (kernel BUG and system crash), as demonstrated by the fio I/O tool. CVE-2008-3528: The ext[234] filesystem code fails to properly handle corrupted data structures. With a mounted filesystem image or partition that have corrupted dir->i_size and dir->i_blocks, a user performing either a read or write operation on the mounted image or partition can lead to a possible denial of service by spamming the logfile. CVE-2007-6716: fs/direct-io.c in the dio subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly zero out the dio struct, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS), as demonstrated by a certain fio test. CVE-2008-3525: Added missing capability checks in sbni_ioctl(). CVE-2008-3272: Fixed range checking in the snd_seq OSS ioctl, which could be used to leak information from the kernel. CVE-2008-2931: The do_change_type function in fs/namespace.c did not verify that the caller has the CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability, which allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service by modifying the properties of a mountpoint. CVE-2008-2812: Various NULL ptr checks have been added to tty op functions, which might have been used by local attackers to execute code. We think that this affects only devices openable by root, so the impact is limited. CVE-2008-1673: Added range checking in ASN.1 handling for the CIFS and SNMP NAT netfilter modules. CVE-2008-3527: arch/i386/kernel/sysenter.c in the Virtual Dynamic Shared Objects (vDSO) implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.21 did not properly check boundaries, which allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service via unspecified vectors, related to the install_special_mapping, syscall, and syscall32_nopage functions.

Local users who have been granted the privileges necessary to mount a filesystem would be able to craft a corrupted filesystem that causes the kernel to output error messages in an infinite loop. - CVE-2008-4554 Milos Szeredi reported that the usage of splice() on files opened with O_APPEND allows users to write to the file at arbitrary offsets, enabling a bypass of possible assumed semantics of the O_APPEND flag. - CVE-2008-4576 Vlad Yasevich reported an issue in the SCTP subsystem that may allow remote users to cause a local DoS by triggering a kernel oops. - CVE-2008-4618 Wei Yongjun reported an issue in the SCTP subsystem that may allow remote users to cause a local DoS by triggering a kernel panic. - CVE-2008-4933 Eric Sesterhenn reported a local DoS issue in the hfsplus filesystem. Local users who have been granted the privileges necessary to mount a filesystem would be able to craft a corrupted filesystem that causes the kernel to overrun a buffer, resulting in a system oops or memory corruption. - CVE-2008-4934 Eric Sesterhenn reported a local DoS issue in the hfsplus filesystem. Local users who have been granted the privileges necessary to mount a filesystem would be able to craft a corrupted filesystem that results in a kernel oops due to an unchecked return value. - CVE-2008-5025 Eric Sesterhenn reported a local DoS issue in the hfs filesystem. Local users who have been granted the privileges necessary to mount a filesystem would be able to craft a filesystem with a corrupted catalog name length, resulting in a system oops or memory corruption. - CVE-2008-5029 Andrea Bittau reported a DoS issue in the unix socket subsystem that allows a local user to cause memory corruption, resulting in a kernel panic. - CVE-2008-5134 Johannes Berg reported a remote DoS issue in the libertas wireless driver, which can be triggered by a specially crafted beacon/probe response. - CVE-2008-5182 Al Viro reported race conditions in the inotify subsystem that may allow local users to acquire elevated privileges. - CVE-2008-5300 Dann Frazier reported a DoS condition that allows local users to cause the out of memory handler to kill off privileged processes or trigger soft lockups due to a starvation issue in the unix socket subsystem.

    title Debian DSA-1681-1 : linux-2.6.24 - denial of service/privilege escalation
  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_KERNEL-5734.NASL
    description This patch updates the SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP1 kernel. It fixes various bugs and security issues. The following security issues are addressed : - fs/open.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.22 does not properly strip setuid and setgid bits when there is a write to a file, which allows local users to gain the privileges of a different group, and obtain sensitive information or possibly have unspecified other impact, by creating an executable file in a setgid directory through the (1) truncate or (2) ftruncate function in conjunction with memory-mapped I/O. (CVE-2008-4210) - The ext[234] filesystem code fails to properly handle corrupted data structures. With a mounted filesystem image or partition that have corrupted dir->i_size and dir->i_blocks, a user performing either a read or write operation on the mounted image or partition can lead to a possible denial of service by spamming the logfile. (CVE-2008-3528) - fs/direct-io.c in the dio subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly zero out the dio struct, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS), as demonstrated by a certain fio test. (CVE-2007-6716) All other bugfixes can be found by looking at the RPM changelog.

  • NASL family Ubuntu Local Security Checks
    NASL id UBUNTU_USN-662-1.NASL
    description It was discovered that the Linux kernel could be made to hang temporarily when mounting corrupted ext2/3 filesystems. If a user were tricked into mounting a specially crafted filesystem, a remote attacker could cause system hangs, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2008-3528) Anders Kaseorg discovered that ndiswrapper did not correctly handle long ESSIDs. For a system using ndiswrapper, a physically near-by attacker could generate specially crafted wireless network traffic and execute arbitrary code with root privileges. (CVE-2008-4395). 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 id SUSE_11_0_KERNEL-081022.NASL
    description This patch updates the openSUSE 11.0 kernel to the 2.6.25.18 stable release. It also includes bugfixes and security fixes : CVE-2008-4410: The vmi_write_ldt_entry function in arch/x86/kernel/vmi_32.c in the Virtual Machine Interface (VMI) in the Linux kernel 2.6.26.5 invokes write_idt_entry where write_ldt_entry was intended, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (persistent application failure) via crafted function calls, related to the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) experiencing improper LDT selector state. sctp: Fix kernel panic while process protocol violation parameter. CVE-2008-3528: The ext[234] filesystem code fails to properly handle corrupted data structures. With a mounted filesystem image or partition that have corrupted dir->i_size and dir->i_blocks, a user performing either a read or write operation on the mounted image or partition can lead to a possible denial of service by spamming the logfile. CVE-2008-3526: Integer overflow in the sctp_setsockopt_auth_key function in net/sctp/socket.c in the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (sctp) implementation in the Linux kernel allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted sca_keylength field associated with the SCTP_AUTH_KEY option. CVE-2008-3525: Added missing capability checks in sbni_ioctl(). CVE-2008-4576: SCTP in Linux kernel before 2.6.25.18 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (OOPS) via an INIT-ACK that states the peer does not support AUTH, which causes the sctp_process_init function to clean up active transports and triggers the OOPS when the T1-Init timer expires. CVE-2008-4445: The sctp_auth_ep_set_hmacs function in net/sctp/auth.c in the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (sctp) implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.26.4, when the SCTP-AUTH extension is enabled, does not verify that the identifier index is within the bounds established by SCTP_AUTH_HMAC_ID_MAX, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information via a crafted SCTP_HMAC_IDENT IOCTL request involving the sctp_getsockopt function. CVE-2008-3792: net/sctp/socket.c in the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (sctp) implementation in the Linux kernel 2.6.26.3 does not verify that the SCTP-AUTH extension is enabled before proceeding with SCTP-AUTH API functions, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via vectors that result in calls to (1) sctp_setsockopt_auth_chunk, (2) sctp_setsockopt_hmac_ident, (3) sctp_setsockopt_auth_key, (4) sctp_setsockopt_active_key, (5) sctp_setsockopt_del_key, (6) sctp_getsockopt_maxburst, (7) sctp_getsockopt_active_key, (8) sctp_getsockopt_peer_auth_chunks, or (9) sctp_getsockopt_local_auth_chunks. CVE-2008-4113: The sctp_getsockopt_hmac_ident function in net/sctp/socket.c in the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (sctp) implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.26.4, when the SCTP-AUTH extension is enabled, relies on an untrusted length value to limit copying of data from kernel memory, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information via a crafted SCTP_HMAC_IDENT IOCTL request involving the sctp_getsockopt function. CVE-2008-3911: The proc_do_xprt function in net/sunrpc/sysctl.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.26.3 does not check the length of a certain buffer obtained from userspace, which allows local users to overflow a stack-based buffer and have unspecified other impact via a crafted read system call for the /proc/sys/sunrpc/transports file.

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:0326 : Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security fixes : * memory leaks were found on some error paths in the icmp_send() function in the Linux kernel. This could, potentially, cause the network connectivity to cease. (CVE-2009-0778, Important) * Chris Evans reported a deficiency in the clone() system call when called with the CLONE_PARENT flag. This flaw permits the caller (the parent process) to indicate an arbitrary signal it wants to receive when its child process exits. This could lead to a denial of service of the parent process. (CVE-2009-0028, Moderate) * an off-by-one underflow flaw was found in the eCryptfs subsystem. This could potentially cause a local denial of service when the readlink() function returned an error. (CVE-2009-0269, Moderate) * a deficiency was found in the Remote BIOS Update (RBU) driver for Dell systems. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to cause a denial of service by reading zero bytes from the image_type or packet_size files in '/sys/devices/platform/dell_rbu/'. (CVE-2009-0322, Moderate) * an inverted logic flaw was found in the SysKonnect FDDI PCI adapter driver, allowing driver statistics to be reset only when the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability was absent (local, unprivileged users could reset driver statistics). (CVE-2009-0675, Moderate) * the sock_getsockopt() function in the Linux kernel did not properly initialize a data structure that can be directly returned to user-space when the getsockopt() function is called with SO_BSDCOMPAT optname set. This flaw could possibly lead to memory disclosure. (CVE-2009-0676, Moderate) * the ext2 and ext3 file system code failed to properly handle corrupted data structures, leading to a possible local denial of service when read or write operations were performed on a specially crafted file system. (CVE-2008-3528, Low) * a deficiency was found in the libATA implementation. This could, potentially, lead to a local denial of service. Note: by default, the '/dev/sg*' devices are accessible only to the root user. (CVE-2008-5700, Low) Bug fixes : * a bug in aic94xx may have caused kernel panics during boot on some systems with certain SATA disks. (BZ#485909) * a word endianness problem in the qla2xx driver on PowerPC-based machines may have corrupted flash-based devices. (BZ#485908) * a memory leak in pipe() may have caused a system deadlock. The workaround in Section 1.5, Known Issues, of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 Release Notes Updates, which involved manually allocating extra file descriptors to processes calling do_pipe, is no longer necessary. (BZ#481576) * CPU soft-lockups in the network rate estimator. (BZ#481746) * bugs in the ixgbe driver caused it to function unreliably on some systems with 16 or more CPU cores. (BZ#483210) * the iwl4965 driver may have caused a kernel panic. (BZ#483206) * a bug caused NFS attributes to not update for some long-lived NFS mounted file systems. (BZ#483201) * unmounting a GFS2 file system may have caused a panic. (BZ#485910) * a bug in ptrace() may have caused a panic when single stepping a target. (BZ#487394) * on some 64-bit systems, notsc was incorrectly set at boot, causing slow gettimeofday() calls. (BZ#488239) * do_machine_check() cleared all Machine Check Exception (MCE) status registers, preventing the BIOS from using them to determine the cause of certain panics and errors. (BZ#490433) * scaling problems caused performance problems for LAPI applications. (BZ#489457) * a panic may have occurred on systems using certain Intel WiFi Link 5000 products when booting with the RF Kill switch on. (BZ#489846) * the TSC is invariant with C/P/T states, and always runs at constant frequency from now on. (BZ#489310) All users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

CVE-2008-3276: An integer overflow flaw was found in the Linux kernel dccp_setsockopt_change() function. An attacker may leverage this vulnerability to trigger a kernel panic on a victim's machine remotely. CVE-2008-1673: Added range checking in ASN.1 handling for the CIFS and SNMP NAT netfilter modules. CVE-2008-2826: A integer overflow in SCTP was fixed, which might have been used by remote attackers to crash the machine or potentially execute code. CVE-2008-2812: Various NULL ptr checks have been added to tty op functions, which might have been used by local attackers to execute code. We think that this affects only devices openable by root, so the impact is limited.

    title openSUSE 10 Security Update : kernel (kernel-5700)
  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DSA-1687.NASL
    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service or privilege escalation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2008-3527 Tavis Ormandy reported a local DoS and potential privilege escalation in the Virtual Dynamic Shared Objects (vDSO) implementation. - CVE-2008-3528 Eugene Teo reported a local DoS issue in the ext2 and ext3 filesystems. Local users who have been granted the privileges necessary to mount a filesystem would be able to craft a corrupted filesystem that causes the kernel to output error messages in an infinite loop. - CVE-2008-4554 Milos Szeredi reported that the usage of splice() on files opened with O_APPEND allows users to write to the file at arbitrary offsets, enabling a bypass of possible assumed semantics of the O_APPEND flag. - CVE-2008-4576 Vlad Yasevich reported an issue in the SCTP subsystem that may allow remote users to cause a local DoS by triggering a kernel oops. - CVE-2008-4933 Eric Sesterhenn reported a local DoS issue in the hfsplus filesystem. Local users who have been granted the privileges necessary to mount a filesystem would be able to craft a corrupted filesystem that causes the kernel to overrun a buffer, resulting in a system oops or memory corruption. - CVE-2008-4934 Eric Sesterhenn reported a local DoS issue in the hfsplus filesystem. Local users who have been granted the privileges necessary to mount a filesystem would be able to craft a corrupted filesystem that results in a kernel oops due to an unchecked return value. - CVE-2008-5025 Eric Sesterhenn reported a local DoS issue in the hfs filesystem. Local users who have been granted the privileges necessary to mount a filesystem would be able to craft a filesystem with a corrupted catalog name length, resulting in a system oops or memory corruption. - CVE-2008-5029 Andrea Bittau reported a DoS issue in the unix socket subsystem that allows a local user to cause memory corruption, resulting in a kernel panic. - CVE-2008-5079 Hugo Dias reported a DoS condition in the ATM subsystem that can be triggered by a local user by calling the svc_listen function twice on the same socket and reading /proc/net/atm/*vc. - CVE-2008-5182 Al Viro reported race conditions in the inotify subsystem that may allow local users to acquire elevated privileges. - CVE-2008-5300 Dann Frazier reported a DoS condition that allows local users to cause the out of memory handler to kill off privileged processes or trigger soft lockups due to a starvation issue in the unix socket subsystem.

  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2009-0326.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security fixes : * memory leaks were found on some error paths in the icmp_send() function in the Linux kernel. This could, potentially, cause the network connectivity to cease. (CVE-2009-0778, Important) * Chris Evans reported a deficiency in the clone() system call when called with the CLONE_PARENT flag. This flaw permits the caller (the parent process) to indicate an arbitrary signal it wants to receive when its child process exits. This could lead to a denial of service of the parent process. (CVE-2009-0028, Moderate) * an off-by-one underflow flaw was found in the eCryptfs subsystem. This could potentially cause a local denial of service when the readlink() function returned an error. (CVE-2009-0269, Moderate) * a deficiency was found in the Remote BIOS Update (RBU) driver for Dell systems. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to cause a denial of service by reading zero bytes from the image_type or packet_size files in '/sys/devices/platform/dell_rbu/'. (CVE-2009-0322, Moderate) * an inverted logic flaw was found in the SysKonnect FDDI PCI adapter driver, allowing driver statistics to be reset only when the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability was absent (local, unprivileged users could reset driver statistics). (CVE-2009-0675, Moderate) * the sock_getsockopt() function in the Linux kernel did not properly initialize a data structure that can be directly returned to user-space when the getsockopt() function is called with SO_BSDCOMPAT optname set. This flaw could possibly lead to memory disclosure. (CVE-2009-0676, Moderate) * the ext2 and ext3 file system code failed to properly handle corrupted data structures, leading to a possible local denial of service when read or write operations were performed on a specially crafted file system. (CVE-2008-3528, Low) * a deficiency was found in the libATA implementation. This could, potentially, lead to a local denial of service. Note: by default, the '/dev/sg*' devices are accessible only to the root user. (CVE-2008-5700, Low) Bug fixes : * a bug in aic94xx may have caused kernel panics during boot on some systems with certain SATA disks. (BZ#485909) * a word endianness problem in the qla2xx driver on PowerPC-based machines may have corrupted flash-based devices. (BZ#485908) * a memory leak in pipe() may have caused a system deadlock. The workaround in Section 1.5, Known Issues, of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 Release Notes Updates, which involved manually allocating extra file descriptors to processes calling do_pipe, is no longer necessary. (BZ#481576) * CPU soft-lockups in the network rate estimator. (BZ#481746) * bugs in the ixgbe driver caused it to function unreliably on some systems with 16 or more CPU cores. (BZ#483210) * the iwl4965 driver may have caused a kernel panic. (BZ#483206) * a bug caused NFS attributes to not update for some long-lived NFS mounted file systems. (BZ#483201) * unmounting a GFS2 file system may have caused a panic. (BZ#485910) * a bug in ptrace() may have caused a panic when single stepping a target. (BZ#487394) * on some 64-bit systems, notsc was incorrectly set at boot, causing slow gettimeofday() calls. (BZ#488239) * do_machine_check() cleared all Machine Check Exception (MCE) status registers, preventing the BIOS from using them to determine the cause of certain panics and errors. (BZ#490433) * scaling problems caused performance problems for LAPI applications. (BZ#489457) * a panic may have occurred on systems using certain Intel WiFi Link 5000 products when booting with the RF Kill switch on. (BZ#489846) * the TSC is invariant with C/P/T states, and always runs at constant frequency from now on. (BZ#489310) All users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

(CVE-2008-3528, Low) In addition, these updated packages fix the following bugs : * when using the CIFS 'forcedirectio' option, appending to an open file on a CIFS share resulted in that file being overwritten with the data to be appended. * a kernel panic occurred when a device with PCI ID 8086:10c8 was present on a system with a loaded ixgbe driver. * due to an aacraid driver regression, the kernel failed to boot when trying to load the aacraid driver and printed the following error message: 'aac_srb: aac_fib_send failed with status: 8195'. * due to an mpt driver regression, when RAID 1 was configured on Primergy systems with an LSI SCSI IME 53C1020/1030 controller, the kernel panicked during boot. * the mpt driver produced a large number of extraneous debugging messages when performing a 'Host reset' operation. * due to a regression in the sym driver, the kernel panicked when a SCSI hot swap was performed using MCP18 hardware. * all cores on a multi-core system now scale their frequencies in accordance with the policy set by the system's CPU frequency governor. * the netdump subsystem suffered from several stability issues. These are addressed in this updated kernel. * under certain conditions, the ext3 file system reported a negative count of used blocks. * reading /proc/self/mem incorrectly returned 'Invalid argument' instead of 'input/output error' due to a regression. * under certain conditions, the kernel panicked when a USB device was removed while the system was busy accessing the device. * a race condition in the kernel could have led to a kernel crash during the creation of a new process.

    NASL id ORACLEVM_OVMSA-2009-0004.NASL
    description The remote OracleVM system is missing necessary patches to address critical security updates : CVE-2008-3528 The error-reporting functionality in (1) fs/ext2/dir.c, (2) fs/ext3/dir.c, and possibly (3) fs/ext4/dir.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.26.5 does not limit the number of printk console messages that report directory corruption, which allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (temporary system hang) by mounting a filesystem that has corrupted dir->i_size and dir->i_blocks values and performing (a) read or (b) write operations. NOTE: there are limited scenarios in which this crosses privilege boundaries. CVE-2008-5700 libata in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27.9 does not set minimum timeouts for SG_IO requests, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (Programmed I/O mode on drives) via multiple simultaneous invocations of an unspecified test program. CVE-2009-0028 The clone system call in the Linux kernel 2.6.28 and earlier allows local users to send arbitrary signals to a parent process from an unprivileged child process by launching an additional child process with the CLONE_PARENT flag, and then letting this new process exit. CVE-2009-0322 drivers/firmware/dell_rbu.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27.13, and 2.6.28.x before 2.6.28.2, allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a read system call that specifies zero bytes from the (1) image_type or (2) packet_size file in /sys/devices/platform/dell_rbu/. CVE-2009-0675 The skfp_ioctl function in drivers/net/skfp/skfddi.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.28.6 permits SKFP_CLR_STATS requests only when the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability is absent, instead of when this capability is present, which allows local users to reset the driver statistics, related to an 'inverted logic' issue. CVE-2009-0676 The sock_getsockopt function in net/core/sock.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.28.6 does not initialize a certain structure member, which allows local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory via an SO_BSDCOMPAT getsockopt request. - CVE-2008-3528 - [fs] ext[234]: directory corruption DoS (Eugene Teo) - CVE-2008-5700 - [block] enforce a minimum SG_IO timeout (Eugene Teo) - CVE-2009-0322 - [firmware] dell_rbu: prevent oops (Don Howard) - CVE-2009-0028 - [misc] minor signal handling vulnerability (Oleg Nesterov) [479963 479964] - CVE-2009-0676 - [net] memory disclosure in SO_BSDCOMPAT gsopt (Eugene Teo) [486517 486518] - CVE-2009-0675 - [net] skfp_ioctl inverted logic flaw (Eugene Teo) - CVE-2009-0778 - not required - CVE-2009-0269 - not required - Enable enic - Finish porting infrastructure for fnic but disable it on 32bit - Add netconsole support for bonding in dom0 (Tina Yang) [orabug 8231228] - Add Cisco fnic/enic support, requires fc infrastructure from el5u3
