ID CVE-2009-0778
Summary The icmp_send function in net/ipv4/icmp.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.25, when configured as a router with a REJECT route, does not properly manage the Protocol Independent Destination Cache (aka DST) in some situations involving transmission of an ICMP Host Unreachable message, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (connectivity outage) by sending a large series of packets to many destination IP addresses within this REJECT route, related to an "rt_cache leak."

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.

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 id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2009-0326.NASL
    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.

    title Scientific Linux Security Update : kernel on SL5.x i386/x86_64
  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2010-0079.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 Extended Update Support. 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. This update fixes the following security issues : * a flaw was found in the IPv6 Extension Header (EH) handling implementation in the Linux kernel. The skb->dst data structure was not properly validated in the ipv6_hop_jumbo() function. This could possibly lead to a remote denial of service. (CVE-2007-4567, Important) * the possibility of a timeout value overflow was found in the Linux kernel high-resolution timers functionality, hrtimers. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to execute arbitrary code, or cause a denial of service (kernel panic). (CVE-2007-5966, Important) * 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) * 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) * a flaw was found in the Intel PRO/1000 Linux driver (e1000) in the Linux kernel. Frames with sizes near the MTU of an interface may be split across multiple hardware receive descriptors. Receipt of such a frame could leak through a validation check, leading to a corruption of the length check. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted packet that would cause a denial of service or code execution. (CVE-2009-1385, Important) * the ADDR_COMPAT_LAYOUT and MMAP_PAGE_ZERO flags were not cleared when a setuid or setgid program was executed. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to bypass the mmap_min_addr protection mechanism and perform a NULL pointer dereference attack, or bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) security feature. (CVE-2009-1895, Important) * a flaw was found in each of the following Intel PRO/1000 Linux drivers in the Linux kernel: e1000 and e1000e. A remote attacker using packets larger than the MTU could bypass the existing fragment check, resulting in partial, invalid frames being passed to the network stack. These flaws could also possibly be used to trigger a remote denial of service. (CVE-2009-4536, CVE-2009-4538, Important) * a flaw was found in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel. Receiving overly-long frames with a certain revision of the network cards supported by this driver could possibly result in a remote denial of service. (CVE-2009-4537, Important) Note: This update also fixes several bugs. Documentation for these bug fixes will be available shortly from www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/errata/RHSA-2010-0079/Kernel_Security_Update / index.html 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.

    title RHEL 5 : kernel (RHSA-2009:0326)
  • NASL family OracleVM Local Security Checks
    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

    title OracleVM 2.1 : kernel (OVMSA-2009-0004)
  • NASL family CentOS Local Security Checks
    NASL id CENTOS_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.
