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-2009-1439, CVE-2009-1633, CVE-2009-1072, CVE-2009-1630, CVE-2009-1192 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-128.1.14. 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

  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_11_0_KERNEL-090602.NASL
    description This kernel update for openSUSE 11.0 fixes some bugs and several security problems. The following security issues are fixed: A local denial of service problem in the splice(2) system call. CVE-2009-1630: The nfs_permission function in fs/nfs/dir.c in the NFS client implementation in the Linux kernel when atomic_open is available, does not check execute (aka EXEC or MAY_EXEC) permission bits, which allows local users to bypass permissions and execute files, as demonstrated by files on an NFSv4 fileserver. CVE-2009-0834: The audit_syscall_entry function in the Linux kernel on the x86_64 platform did 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. CVE-2009-1072: nfsd in the Linux kernel did not drop the CAP_MKNOD capability before handling a user request in a thread, which allows local users to create device nodes, as demonstrated on a filesystem that has been exported with the root_squash option. CVE-2009-0835 The __secure_computing function in kernel/seccomp.c in the seccomp subsystem in the Linux kernel on the x86_64 platform, when CONFIG_SECCOMP is enabled, 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 intended access restrictions via crafted syscalls that are misinterpreted as (a) stat or (b) chmod. CVE-2009-1439: Buffer overflow in fs/cifs/connect.c in CIFS in the Linux kernel 2.6.29 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or potential code execution via a long nativeFileSystem field in a Tree Connect response to an SMB mount request. This requires that kernel can be made to mount a 'cifs' filesystem from a malicious CIFS server. CVE-2009-1337: The exit_notify function in kernel/exit.c in the Linux kernel did 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-2009-0859: The shm_get_stat function in ipc/shm.c in the shm subsystem in the Linux kernel, when CONFIG_SHMEM is disabled, misinterprets the data type of an inode, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system hang) via an SHM_INFO shmctl call, as demonstrated by running the ipcs program. (SUSE is enabling CONFIG_SHMEM, so is by default not affected, the fix is just for completeness). CVE-2009-1242: The vmx_set_msr function in arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the VMX implementation in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel on the i386 platform allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) by setting the EFER_LME (aka 'Long mode enable') bit in the Extended Feature Enable Register (EFER) model-specific register, which is specific to the x86_64 platform. CVE-2009-1265: Integer overflow in rose_sendmsg (sys/net/af_rose.c) in the Linux kernel might allow attackers to obtain sensitive information via a large length value, which causes 'garbage' memory to be sent. CVE-2009-0028: The clone system call in the Linux kernel 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-2009-0675: The skfp_ioctl function in drivers/net/skfp/skfddi.c in the Linux kernel 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 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-2009-0322: drivers/firmware/dell_rbu.c in the Linux kernel 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-2009-0269: fs/ecryptfs/inode.c in the eCryptfs subsystem in the Linux kernel allows local users to cause a denial of service (fault or memory corruption), or possibly have unspecified other impact, via a readlink call that results in an error, leading to use of a -1 return value as an array index. CVE-2009-0065: Buffer overflow in net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c in the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (sctp) implementation in the Linux kernel allows remote attackers to have an unknown impact via an FWD-TSN (aka FORWARD-TSN) chunk with a large stream ID. Some other non-security bugs were fixed, please see the RPM changelog.

  • 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.

    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.

    NASL id MANDRIVA_MDVSA-2009-118.NASL
    description Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux 2.6 kernel : 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-2009-0028) fs/ecryptfs/inode.c in the eCryptfs subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.28.1 allows local users to cause a denial of service (fault or memory corruption), or possibly have unspecified other impact, via a readlink call that results in an error, leading to use of a -1 return value as an array index. (CVE-2009-0269) 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-2009-0834) The __secure_computing function in kernel/seccomp.c in the seccomp subsystem in the Linux kernel 2.6.28.7 and earlier on the x86_64 platform, when CONFIG_SECCOMP is enabled, 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 intended access restrictions via crafted syscalls that are misinterpreted as (a) stat or (b) chmod, a related issue to CVE-2009-0342 and CVE-2009-0343. (CVE-2009-0835) The selinux_ip_postroute_iptables_compat function in security/selinux/hooks.c in the SELinux subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27.22, and 2.6.28.x before 2.6.28.10, when compat_net is enabled, omits calls to avc_has_perm for the (1) node and (2) port, which allows local users to bypass intended restrictions on network traffic. NOTE: this was incorrectly reported as an issue fixed in 2.6.27.21. (CVE-2009-1184) Additionally, along with other things, this kernel update adds support for D-Link DWM 652 3.5G, some Intel gigabit network chipsets, Avermedia PCI pure analog (M135A), fixes a bug causing SQLite performance regression, and has some updated ALSA drivers.

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

  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_KERNEL-6274.NASL
    description This kernel update for openSUSE 10.3 fixes some bugs and several security problems. The following security issues are fixed: A local denial of service problem in the splice(2) system call. CVE-2009-0834: The audit_syscall_entry function in the Linux kernel on the x86_64 platform did 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. CVE-2009-1072: nfsd in the Linux kernel did not drop the CAP_MKNOD capability before handling a user request in a thread, which allows local users to create device nodes, as demonstrated on a filesystem that has been exported with the root_squash option. CVE-2009-0835 The __secure_computing function in kernel/seccomp.c in the seccomp subsystem in the Linux kernel on the x86_64 platform, when CONFIG_SECCOMP is enabled, 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 intended access restrictions via crafted syscalls that are misinterpreted as (a) stat or (b) chmod. CVE-2009-1439: Buffer overflow in fs/cifs/connect.c in CIFS in the Linux kernel 2.6.29 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or potential code execution via a long nativeFileSystem field in a Tree Connect response to an SMB mount request. This requires that kernel can be made to mount a 'cifs' filesystem from a malicious CIFS server. CVE-2009-1337: The exit_notify function in kernel/exit.c in the Linux kernel did 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-2009-0859: The shm_get_stat function in ipc/shm.c in the shm subsystem in the Linux kernel, when CONFIG_SHMEM is disabled, misinterprets the data type of an inode, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system hang) via an SHM_INFO shmctl call, as demonstrated by running the ipcs program. (SUSE is enabling CONFIG_SHMEM, so is by default not affected, the fix is just for completeness). CVE-2009-1265: Integer overflow in rose_sendmsg (sys/net/af_rose.c) in the Linux kernel might allow attackers to obtain sensitive information via a large length value, which causes 'garbage' memory to be sent. CVE-2009-0028: The clone system call in the Linux kernel 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-2009-0676: The sock_getsockopt function in net/core/sock.c in the Linux kernel 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-2009-0322: drivers/firmware/dell_rbu.c in the Linux kernel 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-2009-0269: fs/ecryptfs/inode.c in the eCryptfs subsystem in the Linux kernel allows local users to cause a denial of service (fault or memory corruption), or possibly have unspecified other impact, via a readlink call that results in an error, leading to use of a -1 return value as an array index. CVE-2009-0065: Buffer overflow in net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c in the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (sctp) implementation in the Linux kernel allows remote attackers to have an unknown impact via an FWD-TSN (aka FORWARD-TSN) chunk with a large stream ID. CVE-2008-5702: Buffer underflow in the ibwdt_ioctl function in drivers/watchdog/ib700wdt.c in the Linux kernel might allow local users to have an unknown impact via a certain /dev/watchdog WDIOC_SETTIMEOUT IOCTL call. CVE-2008-4554: The do_splice_from function in fs/splice.c in the Linux kernel 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. Some other non-security bugs were fixed, please see the RPM changelog.

    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.
