The kernel was also updated to the 2.6.27.21 stable release. - nfsd in the Linux kernel does 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-2009-1072) - 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. The fix for this was incomplete. (CVE-2009-0676) - 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-2009-0835)

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 id ORACLEVM_OVMSA-2009-0014.NASL
    description The remote OracleVM system is missing necessary patches to address critical security updates : CVE-2009-1192 The (1) agp_generic_alloc_page and (2) agp_generic_alloc_pages functions in drivers/char/agp/generic.c in the agp subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.30-rc3 do not zero out pages that may later be available to a user-space process, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by reading these pages. CVE-2009-1072 nfsd in the Linux kernel before 2.6.28.9 does 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-2009-1758 The hypervisor_callback function in Xen, possibly before 3.4.0, as applied to the Linux kernel 2.6.30-rc4, 2.6.18, and probably other versions allows guest user applications to cause a denial of service (kernel oops) of the guest OS by triggering a segmentation fault in 'certain address ranges.' 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) via a long nativeFileSystem field in a Tree Connect response to an SMB mount request. CVE-2009-1633 Multiple buffer overflows in the cifs subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.29.4 allow remote CIFS servers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) and possibly have unspecified other impact via (1) a malformed Unicode string, related to Unicode string area alignment in fs/cifs/sess.c or (2) long Unicode characters, related to fs/cifs/cifssmb.c and the cifs_readdir function in fs/cifs/readdir.c. CVE-2009-1630 The nfs_permission function in fs/nfs/dir.c in the NFS client implementation in the Linux kernel 2.6.29.3 and earlier, 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. - [agp] zero pages before sending to userspace (Jiri Olsa) [497025 497026] (CVE-2009-1192) - [misc] add some long-missing capabilities to CAP_FS_MASK (Eric Paris) [499075 497271 499076 497272] (CVE-2009-1072) - [x86] xen: fix local denial of service (Chris Lalancette) [500950 500951] (CVE-2009-1758) - [fs] cifs: unicode alignment and buffer sizing problems (Jeff Layton) [494279 494280] (CVE-2009-1439) - [fs] cifs: buffer overruns when converting strings (Jeff Layton) [496576 496577] (CVE-2009-1633) - [fs] cifs: fix error handling in parse_DFS_referrals (Jeff Layton) [496576 496577] (CVE-2009-1633) - [fs] cifs: fix pointer and checks in cifs_follow_symlink (Jeff Layton) [496576 496577] (CVE-2009-1633) - [nfs] v4: client handling of MAY_EXEC in nfs_permission (Peter Staubach) [500301 500302] (CVE-2009-1630) - backport cifs support from OEL5U3

    NASL id SL_20090616_KERNEL_ON_SL5_X.NASL
    description Security fixes : - several flaws were found in the way the Linux kernel CIFS implementation handles Unicode strings. CIFS clients convert Unicode strings sent by a server to their local character sets, and then write those strings into memory. If a malicious server sent a long enough string, it could write past the end of the target memory region and corrupt other memory areas, possibly leading to a denial of service or privilege escalation on the client mounting the CIFS share. (CVE-2009-1439, CVE-2009-1633, Important) - the Linux kernel Network File System daemon (nfsd) implementation did not drop the CAP_MKNOD capability when handling requests from local, unprivileged users. This flaw could possibly lead to an information leak or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-1072, Moderate) - Frank Filz reported the NFSv4 client was missing a file permission check for the execute bit in some situations. This could allow local, unprivileged users to run non-executable files on NFSv4 mounted file systems. (CVE-2009-1630, Moderate) - a missing check was found in the hypervisor_callback() function in the Linux kernel provided by the kernel-xen package. This could cause a denial of service of a 32-bit guest if an application running in that guest accesses a certain memory location in the kernel. (CVE-2009-1758, Moderate) - a flaw was found in the AGPGART driver. The agp_generic_alloc_page() and agp_generic_alloc_pages() functions did not zero out the memory pages they allocate, which may later be available to user-space processes. This flaw could possibly lead to an information leak. (CVE-2009-1192, Low) Bug fixes : - a race in the NFS client between destroying cached access rights and unmounting an NFS file system could have caused a system crash. 'Busy inodes' messages may have been logged. (BZ#498653) - nanosleep() could sleep several milliseconds less than the specified time on Intel Itanium®-based systems. (BZ#500349) - LEDs for disk drives in AHCI mode may have displayed a fault state when there were no faults. (BZ#500120) - ptrace_do_wait() reported tasks were stopped each time the process doing the trace called wait(), instead of reporting it once. (BZ#486945) - epoll_wait() may have caused a system lockup and problems for applications. (BZ#497322) - missing capabilities could possibly allow users with an fsuid other than 0 to perform actions on some file system types that would otherwise be prevented. (BZ#497271) - on NFS mounted file systems, heavy write loads may have blocked nfs_getattr() for long periods, causing commands that use stat(2), such as ls, to hang. (BZ#486926) - in rare circumstances, if an application performed multiple O_DIRECT reads per virtual memory page and also performed fork(2), the buffer storing the result of the I/O may have ended up with invalid data. (BZ#486921) - when using GFS2, gfs2_quotad may have entered an uninterpretable sleep state. (BZ#501742) - with this update, get_random_int() is more random and no longer uses a common seed value, reducing the possibility of predicting the values returned. (BZ#499783) - the '-fwrapv' flag was added to the gcc build options to prevent gcc from optimizing away wrapping. (BZ#501751) - a kernel panic when enabling and disabling iSCSI paths. (BZ#502916) - using the Broadcom NetXtreme BCM5704 network device with the tg3 driver caused high system load and very bad performance. (BZ#502837) - '/proc/[pid]/maps' and '/proc/[pid]/smaps' can only be read by processes able to use the ptrace() call on a given process; however, certain information from '/proc/[pid]/stat' and '/proc/[pid]/wchan' could be used to reconstruct memory maps. (BZ#499546) The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

(BZ#497322) * missing capabilities could possibly allow users with an fsuid other than 0 to perform actions on some file system types that would otherwise be prevented. (BZ#497271) * on NFS mounted file systems, heavy write loads may have blocked nfs_getattr() for long periods, causing commands that use stat(2), such as ls, to hang. (BZ#486926) * in rare circumstances, if an application performed multiple O_DIRECT reads per virtual memory page and also performed fork(2), the buffer storing the result of the I/O may have ended up with invalid data. (BZ#486921) * when using GFS2, gfs2_quotad may have entered an uninterpretable sleep state. (BZ#501742) * with this update, get_random_int() is more random and no longer uses a common seed value, reducing the possibility of predicting the values returned. (BZ#499783) * the '-fwrapv' flag was added to the gcc build options to prevent gcc from optimizing away wrapping. (BZ#501751) * a kernel panic when enabling and disabling iSCSI paths. (BZ#502916) * using the Broadcom NetXtreme BCM5704 network device with the tg3 driver caused high system load and very bad performance. (BZ#502837) * '/proc/[pid]/maps' and '/proc/[pid]/smaps' can only be read by processes able to use the ptrace() call on a given process; however, certain information from '/proc/[pid]/stat' and '/proc/[pid]/wchan' could be used to reconstruct memory maps. (BZ#499546) 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-2009:1106)
  • 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.

    title openSUSE 10 Security Update : kernel (kernel-6274)
  • NASL family Scientific Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id SL_20090630_KERNEL_ON_SL4_X.NASL
    description These updated packages fix the following security issues : - 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) - 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) - a flaw was found in the Intel PRO/1000 network driver 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. (CVE-2009-1385, Important) - the Linux kernel Network File System daemon (nfsd) implementation did not drop the CAP_MKNOD capability when handling requests from local, unprivileged users. This flaw could possibly lead to an information leak or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-1072, Moderate) - Frank Filz reported the NFSv4 client was missing a file permission check for the execute bit in some situations. This could allow local, unprivileged users to run non-executable files on NFSv4 mounted file systems. (CVE-2009-1630, Moderate) - a missing check was found in the hypervisor_callback() function in the Linux kernel provided by the kernel-xen package. This could cause a denial of service of a 32-bit guest if an application running in that guest accesses a certain memory location in the kernel. (CVE-2009-1758, Moderate) - a flaw was found in the AGPGART driver. The agp_generic_alloc_page() and agp_generic_alloc_pages() functions did not zero out the memory pages they allocate, which may later be available to user-space processes. This flaw could possibly lead to an information leak. (CVE-2009-1192, Low) These updated packages also fix the following bugs : - '/proc/[pid]/maps' and '/proc/[pid]/smaps' can only be read by processes able to use the ptrace() call on a given process; however, certain information from '/proc/[pid]/stat' and '/proc/[pid]/wchan' could be used to reconstruct memory maps, making it possible to bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) security feature. This update addresses this issue. (BZ#499549) - in some situations, the link count was not decreased when renaming unused files on NFS mounted file systems. This may have resulted in poor performance. With this update, the link count is decreased in these situations, the same as is done for other file operations, such as unlink and rmdir. (BZ#501802) - tcp_ack() cleared the probes_out variable even if there were outstanding packets. When low TCP keepalive intervals were used, this bug may have caused problems, such as connections terminating, when using remote tools such as rsh and rlogin. (BZ#501754) - off-by-one errors in the time normalization code could have caused clock_gettime() to return one billion nanoseconds, rather than adding an extra second. This bug could have caused the name service cache daemon (nscd) to consume excessive CPU resources. (BZ#501800) - a system panic could occur when one thread read '/proc/bus/input/devices' while another was removing a device. With this update, a mutex has been added to protect the input_dev_list and input_handler_list variables, which resolves this issue. (BZ#501804) - using netdump may have caused a kernel deadlock on some systems. (BZ#504565) - the file system mask, which lists capabilities for users with a file system user ID (fsuid) of 0, was missing the CAP_MKNOD and CAP_LINUX_IMMUTABLE capabilities. This could, potentially, allow users with an fsuid other than 0 to perform actions on some file system types that would otherwise be prevented. This update adds these capabilities. (BZ#497269) Kernel Feature Support : - added a new allowable value to '/proc/sys/kernel/wake_balance' to allow the scheduler to run the thread on any available CPU rather than scheduling it on the optimal CPU. - added 'max_writeback_pages' tunable parameter to /proc/sys/vm/ to allow the maximum number of modified pages kupdate writes to disk, per iteration per run. - added 'swap_token_timeout' tunable parameter to /proc/sys/vm/ to provide a valid hold time for the swap out protection token. - added diskdump support to sata_svw driver. - limited physical memory to 64GB for 32-bit kernels running on systems with more than 64GB of physical memory to prevent boot failures. - improved reliability of autofs. - added support for 'rdattr_error' in NFSv4 readdir requests. - fixed various short packet handling issues for NFSv4 readdir and sunrpc. - fixed several CIFS bugs. Networking and IPv6 Enablement : - added router solicitation support. - enforced sg requires tx csum in ethtool. Platform Support : x86, AMD64, Intel 64 - added support for a new Intel chipset. - added initialization vendor info in boot_cpu_data. - added support for N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) for IBM System z guests using zFCP. - added HDMI support for some AMD and ATI chipsets. - updated HDA driver in ALSA to latest upstream as of 2008-07-22. - added support for affected_cpus for cpufreq. - removed polling timer from i8042. - fixed PM-Timer when using the ASUS A8V Deluxe motherboard. - backported usbfs_mutex in usbfs. Network Driver Updates : - updated forcedeth driver to latest upstream version 0.61. - fixed various e1000 issues when using Intel ESB2 hardware. - updated e1000e driver to upstream version 0.3.3.3-k6. - updated igb to upstream version 1.2.45-k2. - updated tg3 to upstream version 3.96. - updated ixgbe to upstream version 1.3.18-k4. - updated bnx2 to upstream version 1.7.9. - updated bnx2x to upstream version 1.45.23. - fixed bugs and added enhancements for the NetXen NX2031 and NX3031 products. - updated Realtek r8169 driver to support newer network chipsets. All variants of RTL810x/RTL8168(9) are now supported. Storage Driver Updates : - fixed various SCSI issues. Also, the SCSI sd driver now calls the revalidate_disk wrapper. - fixed a dmraid reduced I/O delay bug in certain configurations. - removed quirk aac_quirk_scsi_32 for some aacraid controllers. - updated FCP driver on IBM System z systems with support for point-to-point connections. - updated lpfc to version 8.0.16.46. - updated megaraid_sas to version 4.01-RH1. - updated MPT Fusion driver to version 3.12.29.00rh. - updated qla2xxx firmware to 4.06.01 for 4GB/s and 8GB/s adapters. - updated qla2xxx driver to version 8.02.09.00.04.08-d. - fixed sata_nv in libsata to disable ADMA mode by default. Miscellaneous Updates : - upgraded OpenFabrics Alliance Enterprise Distribution (OFED) to version 1.4. - added driver support and fixes for various Wacom tablets. Note: The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

  • NASL family Oracle Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2009-1106.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1106 : 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 : * several flaws were found in the way the Linux kernel CIFS implementation handles Unicode strings. CIFS clients convert Unicode strings sent by a server to their local character sets, and then write those strings into memory. If a malicious server sent a long enough string, it could write past the end of the target memory region and corrupt other memory areas, possibly leading to a denial of service or privilege escalation on the client mounting the CIFS share. (CVE-2009-1439, CVE-2009-1633, Important) * the Linux kernel Network File System daemon (nfsd) implementation did not drop the CAP_MKNOD capability when handling requests from local, unprivileged users. This flaw could possibly lead to an information leak or privilege escalation.

The agp_generic_alloc_page() and agp_generic_alloc_pages() functions did not zero out the memory pages they allocate, which may later be available to user-space processes. This flaw could possibly lead to an information leak. (CVE-2009-1192, Low) Bug fixes : * a race in the NFS client between destroying cached access rights and unmounting an NFS file system could have caused a system crash. 'Busy inodes' messages may have been logged. (BZ#498653) * nanosleep() could sleep several milliseconds less than the specified time on Intel Itanium(r)-based systems. (BZ#500349) * LEDs for disk drives in AHCI mode may have displayed a fault state when there were no faults. (BZ#500120) * ptrace_do_wait() reported tasks were stopped each time the process doing the trace called wait(), instead of reporting it once. (BZ#486945) * epoll_wait() may have caused a system lockup and problems for applications. (BZ#497322) * missing capabilities could possibly allow users with an fsuid other than 0 to perform actions on some file system types that would otherwise be prevented. (BZ#497271) * on NFS mounted file systems, heavy write loads may have blocked nfs_getattr() for long periods, causing commands that use stat(2), such as ls, to hang.

    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-2009-0675: 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 SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_11_1_KERNEL-090401.NASL
    description This Linux kernel update for openSUSE 11.1 fixes lots of bugs and some security issues. The kernel was also updated to the 2.6.27.21 stable release. CVE-2009-1072: nfsd in the Linux kernel does 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-2009-0676: 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. The fix for this was incomplete. 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.

    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2009-1132.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1132 : 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. These updated packages fix the following security issues : * a flaw was found in the Intel PRO/1000 network driver 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. (CVE-2009-1385, Important) * the Linux kernel Network File System daemon (nfsd) implementation did not drop the CAP_MKNOD capability when handling requests from local, unprivileged users. This flaw could possibly lead to an information leak or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-1072, Moderate) * Frank Filz reported the NFSv4 client was missing a file permission check for the execute bit in some situations. This could allow local, unprivileged users to run non-executable files on NFSv4 mounted file systems. (CVE-2009-1630, Moderate) * a missing check was found in the hypervisor_callback() function in the Linux kernel provided by the kernel-xen package. This could cause a denial of service of a 32-bit guest if an application running in that guest accesses a certain memory location in the kernel. (CVE-2009-1758, Moderate) * a flaw was found in the AGPGART driver. The agp_generic_alloc_page() and agp_generic_alloc_pages() functions did not zero out the memory pages they allocate, which may later be available to user-space processes. This flaw could possibly lead to an information leak. (CVE-2009-1192, Low) These updated packages also fix the following bugs : * '/proc/[pid]/maps' and '/proc/[pid]/smaps' can only be read by processes able to use the ptrace() call on a given process; however, certain information from '/proc/[pid]/stat' and '/proc/[pid]/wchan' could be used to reconstruct memory maps, making it possible to bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) security feature. This update addresses this issue. (BZ#499549) * in some situations, the link count was not decreased when renaming unused files on NFS mounted file systems. This may have resulted in poor performance. With this update, the link count is decreased in these situations, the same as is done for other file operations, such as unlink and rmdir. (BZ#501802) * tcp_ack() cleared the probes_out variable even if there were outstanding packets. When low TCP keepalive intervals were used, this bug may have caused problems, such as connections terminating, when using remote tools such as rsh and rlogin. (BZ#501754) * off-by-one errors in the time normalization code could have caused clock_gettime() to return one billion nanoseconds, rather than adding an extra second. This bug could have caused the name service cache daemon (nscd) to consume excessive CPU resources. (BZ#501800) * a system panic could occur when one thread read '/proc/bus/input/devices' while another was removing a device. With this update, a mutex has been added to protect the input_dev_list and input_handler_list variables, which resolves this issue. (BZ#501804) * using netdump may have caused a kernel deadlock on some systems. (BZ#504565) * the file system mask, which lists capabilities for users with a file system user ID (fsuid) of 0, was missing the CAP_MKNOD and CAP_LINUX_IMMUTABLE capabilities. This could, potentially, allow users with an fsuid other than 0 to perform actions on some file system types that would otherwise be prevented. This update adds these capabilities. (BZ#497269) All Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues. Note: The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    NASL id CENTOS_RHSA-2009-1106.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 : * several flaws were found in the way the Linux kernel CIFS implementation handles Unicode strings. CIFS clients convert Unicode strings sent by a server to their local character sets, and then write those strings into memory. If a malicious server sent a long enough string, it could write past the end of the target memory region and corrupt other memory areas, possibly leading to a denial of service or privilege escalation on the client mounting the CIFS share. (CVE-2009-1439, CVE-2009-1633, Important) * the Linux kernel Network File System daemon (nfsd) implementation did not drop the CAP_MKNOD capability when handling requests from local, unprivileged users. This flaw could possibly lead to an information leak or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-1072, Moderate) * Frank Filz reported the NFSv4 client was missing a file permission check for the execute bit in some situations.

This flaw could possibly lead to an information leak. (CVE-2009-1192, Low) Bug fixes : * a race in the NFS client between destroying cached access rights and unmounting an NFS file system could have caused a system crash. 'Busy inodes' messages may have been logged. (BZ#498653) * nanosleep() could sleep several milliseconds less than the specified time on Intel Itanium(r)-based systems. (BZ#500349) * LEDs for disk drives in AHCI mode may have displayed a fault state when there were no faults. (BZ#500120) * ptrace_do_wait() reported tasks were stopped each time the process doing the trace called wait(), instead of reporting it once. (BZ#486945) * epoll_wait() may have caused a system lockup and problems for applications. (BZ#497322) * missing capabilities could possibly allow users with an fsuid other than 0 to perform actions on some file system types that would otherwise be prevented. (BZ#497271) * on NFS mounted file systems, heavy write loads may have blocked nfs_getattr() for long periods, causing commands that use stat(2), such as ls, to hang. (BZ#486926) * in rare circumstances, if an application performed multiple O_DIRECT reads per virtual memory page and also performed fork(2), the buffer storing the result of the I/O may have ended up with invalid data. (BZ#486921) * when using GFS2, gfs2_quotad may have entered an uninterpretable sleep state. (BZ#501742) * with this update, get_random_int() is more random and no longer uses a common seed value, reducing the possibility of predicting the values returned. (BZ#499783) * the '-fwrapv' flag was added to the gcc build options to prevent gcc from optimizing away wrapping. (BZ#501751) * a kernel panic when enabling and disabling iSCSI paths. (BZ#502916) * using the Broadcom NetXtreme BCM5704 network device with the tg3 driver caused high system load and very bad performance. (BZ#502837) * '/proc/[pid]/maps' and '/proc/[pid]/smaps' can only be read by processes able to use the ptrace() call on a given process; however, certain information from '/proc/[pid]/stat' and '/proc/[pid]/wchan' could be used to reconstruct memory maps. (BZ#499546) 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.
