CAPEC
  • Leveraging Race Conditions
    This attack targets a race condition occurring when multiple processes access and manipulate the same resource concurrently and the outcome of the execution depends on the particular order in which the access takes place. The attacker can leverage a race condition by "running the race", modifying the resource and modifying the normal execution flow. For instance a race condition can occur while accessing a file, the attacker can trick the system by replacing the original file with his version and cause the system to read the malicious file.
  • Leveraging Time-of-Check and Time-of-Use (TOCTOU) Race Conditions
    This attack targets a race condition occurring between the time of check (state) for a resource and the time of use of a resource. The typical example is the file access. The attacker can leverage a file access race condition by "running the race", meaning that he would modify the resource between the first time the target program accesses the file and the time the target program uses the file. During that period of time, the attacker could do something such as replace the file and cause an escalation of privilege.

    NASL id CENTOS_RHSA-2009-0459.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues and various bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. 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 : * a logic error was found in the do_setlk() function of the Linux kernel Network File System (NFS) implementation. If a signal interrupted a lock request, the local POSIX lock was incorrectly created. This could cause a denial of service on the NFS server if a file descriptor was closed before its corresponding lock request returned. (CVE-2008-4307, Important) * a deficiency was found in the Linux kernel system call auditing implementation on 64-bit systems. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to circumvent a system call audit configuration, if that configuration filtered based on the 'syscall' number or arguments. (CVE-2009-0834, Important) * Chris Evans reported a deficiency in the Linux kernel signals implementation. The clone() system call permits the caller to indicate the signal it wants to receive when its child exits. When clone() is called with the CLONE_PARENT flag, it permits the caller to clone a new child that shares the same parent as itself, enabling the indicated signal to be sent to the caller's parent (instead of the caller), even if the caller's parent has different real and effective user IDs. This could lead to a denial of service of the parent. (CVE-2009-0028, 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) Bug fixes : * a kernel crash may have occurred for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.7 guests if their guest configuration file specified 'vif = [ 'type=ioemu' ]'. This crash only occurred when starting guests via the 'xm create' command. (BZ#477146) * a bug in IO-APIC NMI watchdog may have prevented Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.7 from being installed on HP ProLiant DL580 G5 systems. Hangs during installation and 'NMI received for unknown reason [xx]' errors may have occurred. (BZ#479184) * a kernel deadlock on some systems when using netdump through a network interface that uses the igb driver. (BZ#480579) * a possible kernel hang in sys_ptrace() on the Itanium(r) architecture, possibly triggered by tracing a threaded process with strace. (BZ#484904) * the RHSA-2008:0665 errata only fixed the known problem with the LSI Logic LSI53C1030 Ultra320 SCSI controller, for tape devices. Read commands sent to tape devices may have received incorrect data. This issue may have led to data corruption. This update includes a fix for all types of devices. (BZ#487399) * a missing memory barrier caused a race condition in the AIO subsystem between the read_events() and aio_complete() functions. This may have caused a thread in read_events() to sleep indefinitely, possibly causing an application hang. (BZ#489935) * due to a lack of synchronization in the NFS client code, modifications to some pages (for files on an NFS mounted file system) made through a region of memory mapped by mmap() may be lost if the NFS client invalidates its page cache for particular files. (BZ#490119) * a NULL pointer dereference in the megaraid_mbox driver caused a system crash on some systems. (BZ#493420) * the ext3_symlink() function in the ext3 file system code used an illegal __GFP_FS allocation inside some transactions. This may have resulted in a kernel panic and 'Assertion failure' errors. (BZ#493422) * 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#494915) * a bug prevented NMI watchdog from initializing on HP ProLiant DL580 G5 systems. (BZ#497330) This update contains backported patches to fix these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    NASL id ORACLEVM_OVMSA-2009-0009.NASL
    description The remote OracleVM system is missing necessary patches to address critical security updates : CVE-2008-4307 Race condition in the do_setlk function in fs/nfs/file.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.26 allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash) via vectors resulting in an interrupted RPC call that leads to a stray FL_POSIX lock, related to improper handling of a race between fcntl and close in the EINTR case. CVE-2009-1337 The exit_notify function in kernel/exit.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.30-rc1 does not restrict exit signals when the CAP_KILL capability is held, which allows local users to send an arbitrary signal to a process by running a program that modifies the exit_signal field and then uses an exec system call to launch a setuid application. CVE-2009-0834 The audit_syscall_entry function in the Linux kernel 2.6.28.7 and earlier on the x86_64 platform does not properly handle (1) a 32-bit process making a 64-bit syscall or (2) a 64-bit process making a 32-bit syscall, which allows local users to bypass certain syscall audit configurations via crafted syscalls, a related issue to CVE-2009-0342 and CVE-2009-0343. CVE-2009-1336 fs/nfs/client.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.23 does not properly initialize a certain structure member that stores the maximum NFS filename length, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) via a long filename, related to the encode_lookup function. - CVE-2008-4307 -[nfs] remove bogus lock-if-signalled case (Bryn M.

    description Security fixes : - a logic error was found in the do_setlk() function of the Linux kernel Network File System (NFS) implementation. If a signal interrupted a lock request, the local POSIX lock was incorrectly created. This could cause a denial of service on the NFS server if a file descriptor was closed before its corresponding lock request returned. (CVE-2008-4307, Important) - a deficiency was found in the Linux kernel system call auditing implementation on 64-bit systems. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to circumvent a system call audit configuration, if that configuration filtered based on the 'syscall' number or arguments. (CVE-2009-0834, Important) - Chris Evans reported a deficiency in the Linux kernel signals implementation. The clone() system call permits the caller to indicate the signal it wants to receive when its child exits. When clone() is called with the CLONE_PARENT flag, it permits the caller to clone a new child that shares the same parent as itself, enabling the indicated signal to be sent to the caller's parent (instead of the caller), even if the caller's parent has different real and effective user IDs. This could lead to a denial of service of the parent. (CVE-2009-0028, 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) Bug fixes : - a kernel crash may have occurred for Scientific Linux 4.7 guests if their guest configuration file specified 'vif = [ 'type=ioemu' ]'. This crash only occurred when starting guests via the 'xm create' command. (BZ#477146) - a bug in IO-APIC NMI watchdog may have prevented Scientific Linux 4.7 from being installed on HP ProLiant DL580 G5 systems. Hangs during installation and 'NMI received for unknown reason [xx]' errors may have occurred. (BZ#479184) - a kernel deadlock on some systems when using netdump through a network interface that uses the igb driver. (BZ#480579) - a possible kernel hang in sys_ptrace() on the Itanium® architecture, possibly triggered by tracing a threaded process with strace. (BZ#484904) - the RHSA-2008:0665 errata only fixed the known problem with the LSI Logic LSI53C1030 Ultra320 SCSI controller, for tape devices. Read commands sent to tape devices may have received incorrect data. This issue may have led to data corruption. This update includes a fix for all types of devices. (BZ#487399) - a missing memory barrier caused a race condition in the AIO subsystem between the read_events() and aio_complete() functions. This may have caused a thread in read_events() to sleep indefinitely, possibly causing an application hang. (BZ#489935) - due to a lack of synchronization in the NFS client code, modifications to some pages (for files on an NFS mounted file system) made through a region of memory mapped by mmap() may be lost if the NFS client invalidates its page cache for particular files. (BZ#490119) - a NULL pointer dereference in the megaraid_mbox driver caused a system crash on some systems. (BZ#493420) - the ext3_symlink() function in the ext3 file system code used an illegal __GFP_FS allocation inside some transactions. This may have resulted in a kernel panic and 'Assertion failure' errors. (BZ#493422) - 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#494915) - a bug prevented NMI watchdog from initializing on HP ProLiant DL580 G5 systems. (BZ#497330)

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.

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

(CVE-2009-0028, 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) Bug fixes : * a kernel crash may have occurred for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.7 guests if their guest configuration file specified 'vif = [ 'type=ioemu' ]'. This crash only occurred when starting guests via the 'xm create' command. (BZ#477146) * a bug in IO-APIC NMI watchdog may have prevented Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.7 from being installed on HP ProLiant DL580 G5 systems. Hangs during installation and 'NMI received for unknown reason [xx]' errors may have occurred. (BZ#479184) * a kernel deadlock on some systems when using netdump through a network interface that uses the igb driver. (BZ#480579) * a possible kernel hang in sys_ptrace() on the Itanium(r) architecture, possibly triggered by tracing a threaded process with strace. (BZ#484904) * the RHSA-2008:0665 errata only fixed the known problem with the LSI Logic LSI53C1030 Ultra320 SCSI controller, for tape devices. Read commands sent to tape devices may have received incorrect data. This issue may have led to data corruption. This update includes a fix for all types of devices. (BZ#487399) * a missing memory barrier caused a race condition in the AIO subsystem between the read_events() and aio_complete() functions. This may have caused a thread in read_events() to sleep indefinitely, possibly causing an application hang. (BZ#489935) * due to a lack of synchronization in the NFS client code, modifications to some pages (for files on an NFS mounted file system) made through a region of memory mapped by mmap() may be lost if the NFS client invalidates its page cache for particular files. (BZ#490119) * a NULL pointer dereference in the megaraid_mbox driver caused a system crash on some systems. (BZ#493420) * the ext3_symlink() function in the ext3 file system code used an illegal __GFP_FS allocation inside some transactions. This may have resulted in a kernel panic and 'Assertion failure' errors. (BZ#493422) * 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#494915) * a bug prevented NMI watchdog from initializing on HP ProLiant DL580 G5 systems. (BZ#497330) This update contains backported patches to fix these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    description This update fixes the following security issues : - a logic error was found in the do_setlk() function of the Linux kernel Network File System (NFS) implementation. If a signal interrupted a lock request, the local POSIX lock was incorrectly created. This could cause a denial of service on the NFS server if a file descriptor was closed before its corresponding lock request returned. (CVE-2008-4307, Important) - a deficiency was found in the Linux kernel system call auditing implementation on 64-bit systems. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to circumvent a system call audit configuration, if that configuration filtered based on the 'syscall' number or arguments. (CVE-2009-0834, Important) - the exit_notify() function in the Linux kernel did not properly reset the exit signal if a process executed a set user ID (setuid) application before exiting. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to elevate their privileges. (CVE-2009-1337, Important) - a flaw was found in the ecryptfs_write_metadata_to_contents() function of the Linux kernel eCryptfs implementation. On systems with a 4096 byte page-size, this flaw may have caused 4096 bytes of uninitialized kernel memory to be written into the eCryptfs file headers, leading to an information leak. Note: Encrypted files created on systems running the vulnerable version of eCryptfs may contain leaked data in the eCryptfs file headers. This update does not remove any leaked data. Refer to the Knowledgebase article in the References section for further information. (CVE-2009-0787, Moderate) - the Linux kernel implementation of the Network File System (NFS) did not properly initialize the file name limit in the nfs_server data structure. This flaw could possibly lead to a denial of service on a client mounting an NFS share. (CVE-2009-1336, Moderate) This update also fixes the following bugs : - the enic driver (Cisco 10G Ethernet) did not operate under virtualization. (BZ#472474) - network interfaces using the IBM eHEA Ethernet device driver could not be successfully configured under low-memory conditions. (BZ#487035) - bonding with the 'arp_validate=3' option may have prevented fail overs. (BZ#488064) - when running under virtualization, the acpi-cpufreq module wrote 'Domain attempted WRMSR' errors to the dmesg log. (BZ#488928) - NFS clients may have experienced deadlocks during unmount. (BZ#488929) - the ixgbe driver double counted the number of received bytes and packets. (BZ#489459) - the Wacom Intuos3 Lens Cursor device did not work correctly with the Wacom Intuos3 12x12 tablet. (BZ#489460) - on the Itanium® architecture, nanosleep() caused commands which used it, such as sleep and usleep, to sleep for one second more than expected. (BZ#490434) - a panic and corruption of slab cache data structures occurred on 64-bit PowerPC systems when clvmd was running. (BZ#491677) - the NONSTOP_TSC feature did not perform correctly on the Intel® microarchitecture (Nehalem) when running in 32-bit mode. (BZ#493356) - keyboards may not have functioned on IBM eServer System p machines after a certain point during installation or afterward. (BZ#494293) - using Device Mapper Multipathing with the qla2xxx driver resulted in frequent path failures. (BZ#495635) - if the hypervisor was booted with the dom0_max_vcpus parameter set to less than the actual number of CPUs in the system, and the cpuspeed service was started, the hypervisor could crash. (BZ#495931) - using Openswan to provide an IPsec virtual private network eventually resulted in a CPU soft lockup and a system crash.

    description NFS did not correctly handle races between fcntl and interrupts. A local attacker on an NFS mount could consume unlimited kernel memory, leading to a denial of service. Ubuntu 8.10 was not affected. (CVE-2008-4307) Sparc syscalls did not correctly check mmap regions. A local attacker could cause a system panic, leading to a denial of service. Ubuntu 8.10 was not affected. (CVE-2008-6107) In certain situations, cloned processes were able to send signals to parent processes, crossing privilege boundaries. A local attacker could send arbitrary signals to parent processes, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2009-0028) The kernel keyring did not free memory correctly. A local attacker could consume unlimited kernel memory, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2009-0031) The SCTP stack did not correctly validate FORWARD-TSN packets. A remote attacker could send specially crafted SCTP traffic causing a system crash, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2009-0065) The eCryptfs filesystem did not correctly handle certain VFS return codes. A local attacker with write-access to an eCryptfs filesystem could cause a system crash, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2009-0269) The Dell platform device did not correctly validate user parameters. A local attacker could perform specially crafted reads to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2009-0322) The page fault handler could consume stack memory. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system or gain root privileges with a Kprobe registered. Only Ubuntu 8.10 was affected. (CVE-2009-0605) Network interfaces statistics for the SysKonnect FDDI driver did not check capabilities. A local user could reset statistics, potentially interfering with packet accounting systems. (CVE-2009-0675) The getsockopt function did not correctly clear certain parameters. A local attacker could read leaked kernel memory, leading to a loss of privacy. (CVE-2009-0676) The ext4 filesystem did not correctly clear group descriptors when resizing. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2009-0745) The ext4 filesystem did not correctly validate certain fields. A local attacker could mount a malicious ext4 filesystem, causing a system crash, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2009-0746, CVE-2009-0747, CVE-2009-0748) The syscall interface did not correctly validate parameters when crossing the 64-bit/32-bit boundary. A local attacker could bypass certain syscall restricts via crafted syscalls. (CVE-2009-0834, CVE-2009-0835) The shared memory subsystem did not correctly handle certain shmctl calls when CONFIG_SHMEM was disabled. Ubuntu kernels were not vulnerable, since CONFIG_SHMEM is enabled by default. (CVE-2009-0859) The virtual consoles did not correctly handle certain UTF-8 sequences. A local attacker on the physical console could exploit this to cause a system crash, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2009-1046). 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.
