ID CVE-2009-3620
Summary The ATI Rage 128 (aka r128) driver in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31-git11 does not properly verify Concurrent Command Engine (CCE) state initialization, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via unspecified ioctl calls.

Impact:
Exploitability:
CWE CWE-20
CAPEC
  • Buffer Overflow via Environment Variables
    This attack pattern involves causing a buffer overflow through manipulation of environment variables. Once the attacker finds that they can modify an environment variable, they may try to overflow associated buffers. This attack leverages implicit trust often placed in environment variables.
  • Server Side Include (SSI) Injection
    An attacker can use Server Side Include (SSI) Injection to send code to a web application that then gets executed by the web server. Doing so enables the attacker to achieve similar results to Cross Site Scripting, viz., arbitrary code execution and information disclosure, albeit on a more limited scale, since the SSI directives are nowhere near as powerful as a full-fledged scripting language. Nonetheless, the attacker can conveniently gain access to sensitive files, such as password files, and execute shell commands.
  • Cross Zone Scripting
    An attacker is able to cause a victim to load content into their web-browser that bypasses security zone controls and gain access to increased privileges to execute scripting code or other web objects such as unsigned ActiveX controls or applets. This is a privilege elevation attack targeted at zone-based web-browser security. In a zone-based model, pages belong to one of a set of zones corresponding to the level of privilege assigned to that page. Pages in an untrusted zone would have a lesser level of access to the system and/or be restricted in the types of executable content it was allowed to invoke. In a cross-zone scripting attack, a page that should be assigned to a less privileged zone is granted the privileges of a more trusted zone. This can be accomplished by exploiting bugs in the browser, exploiting incorrect configuration in the zone controls, through a cross-site scripting attack that causes the attackers' content to be treated as coming from a more trusted page, or by leveraging some piece of system functionality that is accessible from both the trusted and less trusted zone. This attack differs from "Restful Privilege Escalation" in that the latter correlates to the inadequate securing of RESTful access methods (such as HTTP DELETE) on the server, while cross-zone scripting attacks the concept of security zones as implemented by a browser.
  • Cross Site Scripting through Log Files
    An attacker may leverage a system weakness where logs are susceptible to log injection to insert scripts into the system's logs. If these logs are later viewed by an administrator through a thin administrative interface and the log data is not properly HTML encoded before being written to the page, the attackers' scripts stored in the log will be executed in the administrative interface with potentially serious consequences. This attack pattern is really a combination of two other attack patterns: log injection and stored cross site scripting.
  • Command Line Execution through SQL Injection
    An attacker uses standard SQL injection methods to inject data into the command line for execution. This could be done directly through misuse of directives such as MSSQL_xp_cmdshell or indirectly through injection of data into the database that would be interpreted as shell commands. Sometime later, an unscrupulous backend application (or could be part of the functionality of the same application) fetches the injected data stored in the database and uses this data as command line arguments without performing proper validation. The malicious data escapes that data plane by spawning new commands to be executed on the host.
  • Object Relational Mapping Injection
    An attacker leverages a weakness present in the database access layer code generated with an Object Relational Mapping (ORM) tool or a weakness in the way that a developer used a persistence framework to inject his or her own SQL commands to be executed against the underlying database. The attack here is similar to plain SQL injection, except that the application does not use JDBC to directly talk to the database, but instead it uses a data access layer generated by an ORM tool or framework (e.g. Hibernate). While most of the time code generated by an ORM tool contains safe access methods that are immune to SQL injection, sometimes either due to some weakness in the generated code or due to the fact that the developer failed to use the generated access methods properly, SQL injection is still possible.
  • SQL Injection through SOAP Parameter Tampering
    An attacker modifies the parameters of the SOAP message that is sent from the service consumer to the service provider to initiate a SQL injection attack. On the service provider side, the SOAP message is parsed and parameters are not properly validated before being used to access a database in a way that does not use parameter binding, thus enabling the attacker to control the structure of the executed SQL query. This pattern describes a SQL injection attack with the delivery mechanism being a SOAP message.
  • Subverting Environment Variable Values
    The attacker directly or indirectly modifies environment variables used by or controlling the target software. The attacker's goal is to cause the target software to deviate from its expected operation in a manner that benefits the attacker.
  • Format String Injection
    An attacker includes formatting characters in a string input field on the target application. Most applications assume that users will provide static text and may respond unpredictably to the presence of formatting character. For example, in certain functions of the C programming languages such as printf, the formatting character %s will print the contents of a memory location expecting this location to identify a string and the formatting character %n prints the number of DWORD written in the memory. An attacker can use this to read or write to memory locations or files, or simply to manipulate the value of the resulting text in unexpected ways. Reading or writing memory may result in program crashes and writing memory could result in the execution of arbitrary code if the attacker can write to the program stack.
  • LDAP Injection
    An attacker manipulates or crafts an LDAP query for the purpose of undermining the security of the target. Some applications use user input to create LDAP queries that are processed by an LDAP server. For example, a user might provide their username during authentication and the username might be inserted in an LDAP query during the authentication process. An attacker could use this input to inject additional commands into an LDAP query that could disclose sensitive information. For example, entering a * in the aforementioned query might return information about all users on the system. This attack is very similar to an SQL injection attack in that it manipulates a query to gather additional information or coerce a particular return value.
  • Relative Path Traversal
    An attacker exploits a weakness in input validation on the target by supplying a specially constructed path utilizing dot and slash characters for the purpose of obtaining access to arbitrary files or resources. An attacker modifies a known path on the target in order to reach material that is not available through intended channels. These attacks normally involve adding additional path separators (/ or \) and/or dots (.), or encodings thereof, in various combinations in order to reach parent directories or entirely separate trees of the target's directory structure.
  • Client-side Injection-induced Buffer Overflow
    This type of attack exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in targeted client software through injection of malicious content from a custom-built hostile service.
  • Variable Manipulation
    An attacker manipulates variables used by an application to perform a variety of possible attacks. This can either be performed through the manipulation of function call parameters or by manipulating external variables, such as environment variables, that are used by an application. Changing variable values is usually undertaken as part of another attack; for example, a path traversal (inserting relative path modifiers) or buffer overflow (enlarging a variable value beyond an application's ability to store it).
  • Embedding Scripts in Non-Script Elements
    This attack is a form of Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) where malicious scripts are embedded in elements that are not expected to host scripts such as image tags (<img>), comments in XML documents (< !-CDATA->), etc. These tags may not be subject to the same input validation, output validation, and other content filtering and checking routines, so this can create an opportunity for an attacker to tunnel through the application's elements and launch a XSS attack through other elements. As with all remote attacks, it is important to differentiate the ability to launch an attack (such as probing an internal network for unpatched servers) and the ability of the remote attacker to collect and interpret the output of said attack.
  • Flash Injection
    An attacker tricks a victim to execute malicious flash content that executes commands or makes flash calls specified by the attacker. One example of this attack is cross-site flashing, an attacker controlled parameter to a reference call loads from content specified by the attacker.
  • Cross-Site Scripting Using Alternate Syntax
    The attacker uses alternate forms of keywords or commands that result in the same action as the primary form but which may not be caught by filters. For example, many keywords are processed in a case insensitive manner. If the site's web filtering algorithm does not convert all tags into a consistent case before the comparison with forbidden keywords it is possible to bypass filters (e.g., incomplete black lists) by using an alternate case structure. For example, the "script" tag using the alternate forms of "Script" or "ScRiPt" may bypass filters where "script" is the only form tested. Other variants using different syntax representations are also possible as well as using pollution meta-characters or entities that are eventually ignored by the rendering engine. The attack can result in the execution of otherwise prohibited functionality.
  • Exploiting Trust in Client (aka Make the Client Invisible)
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities in client/server communication channel authentication and data integrity. It leverages the implicit trust a server places in the client, or more importantly, that which the server believes is the client. An attacker executes this type of attack by placing themselves in the communication channel between client and server such that communication directly to the server is possible where the server believes it is communicating only with a valid client. There are numerous variations of this type of attack.
  • XML Nested Payloads
    Applications often need to transform data in and out of the XML format by using an XML parser. It may be possible for an attacker to inject data that may have an adverse effect on the XML parser when it is being processed. By nesting XML data and causing this data to be continuously self-referential, an attacker can cause the XML parser to consume more resources while processing, causing excessive memory consumption and CPU utilization. An attacker's goal is to leverage parser failure to his or her advantage. In most cases this type of an attack will result in a denial of service due to an application becoming unstable, freezing, or crash. However it may be possible to cause a crash resulting in arbitrary code execution, leading to a jump from the data plane to the control plane [R.230.1].
  • XML Oversized Payloads
    Applications often need to transform data in and out of the XML format by using an XML parser. It may be possible for an attacker to inject data that may have an adverse effect on the XML parser when it is being processed. By supplying oversized payloads in input vectors that will be processed by the XML parser, an attacker can cause the XML parser to consume more resources while processing, causing excessive memory consumption and CPU utilization, and potentially cause execution of arbitrary code. An attacker's goal is to leverage parser failure to his or her advantage. In many cases this type of an attack will result in a denial of service due to an application becoming unstable, freezing, or crash. However it is possible to cause a crash resulting in arbitrary code execution, leading to a jump from the data plane to the control plane [R.231.1].
  • Filter Failure through Buffer Overflow
    In this attack, the idea is to cause an active filter to fail by causing an oversized transaction. An attacker may try to feed overly long input strings to the program in an attempt to overwhelm the filter (by causing a buffer overflow) and hoping that the filter does not fail securely (i.e. the user input is let into the system unfiltered).
  • Cross-Site Scripting via Encoded URI Schemes
    An attack of this type exploits the ability of most browsers to interpret "data", "javascript" or other URI schemes as client-side executable content placeholders. This attack consists of passing a malicious URI in an anchor tag HREF attribute or any other similar attributes in other HTML tags. Such malicious URI contains, for example, a base64 encoded HTML content with an embedded cross-site scripting payload. The attack is executed when the browser interprets the malicious content i.e., for example, when the victim clicks on the malicious link.
  • XML Injection
    An attacker utilizes crafted XML user-controllable input to probe, attack, and inject data into the XML database, using techniques similar to SQL injection. The user-controllable input can allow for unauthorized viewing of data, bypassing authentication or the front-end application for direct XML database access, and possibly altering database information.
  • Environment Variable Manipulation
    An attacker manipulates environment variables used by an application to perform a variety of possible attacks. Changing variable values is usually undertaken as part of another attack; for example, a path traversal (inserting relative path modifiers) or buffer overflow (enlarging a variable value beyond an application's ability to store it).
  • Global variable manipulation
    An attacker manipulates global variables used by an application to perform a variety of possible attacks. Changing variable values is usually undertaken as part of another attack; for example, a path traversal (inserting relative path modifiers) or buffer overflow (enlarging a variable value beyond an application's ability to store it).
  • Leverage Alternate Encoding
    This attack leverages the possibility to encode potentially harmful input and submit it to applications not expecting or effective at validating this encoding standard making input filtering difficult.
  • Fuzzing
    Fuzzing is a software testing method that feeds randomly constructed input to the system and looks for an indication that a failure in response to that input has occurred. Fuzzing treats the system as a black box and is totally free from any preconceptions or assumptions about the system. An attacker can leverage fuzzing to try to identify weaknesses in the system. For instance fuzzing can help an attacker discover certain assumptions made in the system about user input. Fuzzing gives an attacker a quick way of potentially uncovering some of these assumptions without really knowing anything about the internals of the system. These assumptions can then be turned against the system by specially crafting user input that may allow an attacker to achieve his goals.
  • Using Leading 'Ghost' Character Sequences to Bypass Input Filters
    An attacker intentionally introduces leading characters that enable getting the input past the filters. The API that is being targeted, ignores the leading "ghost" characters, and therefore processes the attackers' input. This occurs when the targeted API will accept input data in several syntactic forms and interpret it in the equivalent semantic way, while the filter does not take into account the full spectrum of the syntactic forms acceptable to the targeted API. Some APIs will strip certain leading characters from a string of parameters. Perhaps these characters are considered redundant, and for this reason they are removed. Another possibility is the parser logic at the beginning of analysis is specialized in some way that causes some characters to be removed. The attacker can specify multiple types of alternative encodings at the beginning of a string as a set of probes. One commonly used possibility involves adding ghost characters--extra characters that don't affect the validity of the request at the API layer. If the attacker has access to the API libraries being targeted, certain attack ideas can be tested directly in advance. Once alternative ghost encodings emerge through testing, the attacker can move from lab-based API testing to testing real-world service implementations.
  • Accessing/Intercepting/Modifying HTTP Cookies
    This attack relies on the use of HTTP Cookies to store credentials, state information and other critical data on client systems. The first form of this attack involves accessing HTTP Cookies to mine for potentially sensitive data contained therein. The second form of this attack involves intercepting this data as it is transmitted from client to server. This intercepted information is then used by the attacker to impersonate the remote user/session. The third form is when the cookie's content is modified by the attacker before it is sent back to the server. Here the attacker seeks to convince the target server to operate on this falsified information.
  • Embedding Scripts in HTTP Query Strings
    A variant of cross-site scripting called "reflected" cross-site scripting, the HTTP Query Strings attack consists of passing a malicious script inside an otherwise valid HTTP request query string. This is of significant concern for sites that rely on dynamic, user-generated content such as bulletin boards, news sites, blogs, and web enabled administration GUIs. The malicious script may steal session data, browse history, probe files, or otherwise execute attacks on the client side. Once the attacker has prepared the malicious HTTP query it is sent to a victim user (perhaps by email, IM, or posted on an online forum), who clicks on a normal looking link that contains a poison query string. This technique can be made more effective through the use of services like http://tinyurl.com/, which makes very small URLs that will redirect to very large, complex ones. The victim will not know what he is really clicking on.
  • MIME Conversion
    An attacker exploits a weakness in the MIME conversion routine to cause a buffer overflow and gain control over the mail server machine. The MIME system is designed to allow various different information formats to be interpreted and sent via e-mail. Attack points exist when data are converted to MIME compatible format and back.
  • Exploiting Multiple Input Interpretation Layers
    An attacker supplies the target software with input data that contains sequences of special characters designed to bypass input validation logic. This exploit relies on the target making multiples passes over the input data and processing a "layer" of special characters with each pass. In this manner, the attacker can disguise input that would otherwise be rejected as invalid by concealing it with layers of special/escape characters that are stripped off by subsequent processing steps. The goal is to first discover cases where the input validation layer executes before one or more parsing layers. That is, user input may go through the following logic in an application: In such cases, the attacker will need to provide input that will pass through the input validator, but after passing through parser2, will be converted into something that the input validator was supposed to stop.
  • Buffer Overflow via Symbolic Links
    This type of attack leverages the use of symbolic links to cause buffer overflows. An attacker can try to create or manipulate a symbolic link file such that its contents result in out of bounds data. When the target software processes the symbolic link file, it could potentially overflow internal buffers with insufficient bounds checking.
  • Overflow Variables and Tags
    This type of attack leverages the use of tags or variables from a formatted configuration data to cause buffer overflow. The attacker crafts a malicious HTML page or configuration file that includes oversized strings, thus causing an overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow via Parameter Expansion
    In this attack, the target software is given input that the attacker knows will be modified and expanded in size during processing. This attack relies on the target software failing to anticipate that the expanded data may exceed some internal limit, thereby creating a buffer overflow.
  • Signature Spoof
    An attacker generates a message or datablock that causes the recipient to believe that the message or datablock was generated and cryptographically signed by an authoritative or reputable source, misleading a victim or victim operating system into performing malicious actions.
  • XML Client-Side Attack
    Client applications such as web browsers that process HTML data often need to transform data in and out of the XML format by using an XML parser. It may be possible for an attacker to inject data that may have an adverse effect on the XML parser when it is being processed. These adverse effects may include the parser crashing, consuming too much of a resource, executing too slowly, executing code supplied by an attacker, allowing usage of unintended system functionality, etc. An attacker's goal is to leverage parser failure to his or her advantage. In some cases it may be possible to jump from the data plane to the control plane via bad data being passed to an XML parser. [R.484.1]
  • Embedding NULL Bytes
    An attacker embeds one or more null bytes in input to the target software. This attack relies on the usage of a null-valued byte as a string terminator in many environments. The goal is for certain components of the target software to stop processing the input when it encounters the null byte(s).
  • Postfix, Null Terminate, and Backslash
    If a string is passed through a filter of some kind, then a terminal NULL may not be valid. Using alternate representation of NULL allows an attacker to embed the NULL mid-string while postfixing the proper data so that the filter is avoided. One example is a filter that looks for a trailing slash character. If a string insertion is possible, but the slash must exist, an alternate encoding of NULL in mid-string may be used.
  • Simple Script Injection
    An attacker embeds malicious scripts in content that will be served to web browsers. The goal of the attack is for the target software, the client-side browser, to execute the script with the users' privilege level. An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities that are brought on by allowing remote hosts to execute code and scripts. Web browsers, for example, have some simple security controls in place, but if a remote attacker is allowed to execute scripts (through injecting them in to user-generated content like bulletin boards) then these controls may be bypassed. Further, these attacks are very difficult for an end user to detect.
  • Using Slashes and URL Encoding Combined to Bypass Validation Logic
    This attack targets the encoding of the URL combined with the encoding of the slash characters. An attacker can take advantage of the multiple way of encoding an URL and abuse the interpretation of the URL. An URL may contain special character that need special syntax handling in order to be interpreted. Special characters are represented using a percentage character followed by two digits representing the octet code of the original character (%HEX-CODE). For instance US-ASCII space character would be represented with %20. This is often referred as escaped ending or percent-encoding. Since the server decodes the URL from the requests, it may restrict the access to some URL paths by validating and filtering out the URL requests it received. An attacker will try to craft an URL with a sequence of special characters which once interpreted by the server will be equivalent to a forbidden URL. It can be difficult to protect against this attack since the URL can contain other format of encoding such as UTF-8 encoding, Unicode-encoding, etc.
  • SQL Injection
    This attack exploits target software that constructs SQL statements based on user input. An attacker crafts input strings so that when the target software constructs SQL statements based on the input, the resulting SQL statement performs actions other than those the application intended. SQL Injection results from failure of the application to appropriately validate input. When specially crafted user-controlled input consisting of SQL syntax is used without proper validation as part of SQL queries, it is possible to glean information from the database in ways not envisaged during application design. Depending upon the database and the design of the application, it may also be possible to leverage injection to have the database execute system-related commands of the attackers' choice. SQL Injection enables an attacker to talk directly to the database, thus bypassing the application completely. Successful injection can cause information disclosure as well as ability to add or modify data in the database. In order to successfully inject SQL and retrieve information from a database, an attacker:
  • String Format Overflow in syslog()
    This attack targets the format string vulnerabilities in the syslog() function. An attacker would typically inject malicious input in the format string parameter of the syslog function. This is a common problem, and many public vulnerabilities and associated exploits have been posted.
  • Blind SQL Injection
    Blind SQL Injection results from an insufficient mitigation for SQL Injection. Although suppressing database error messages are considered best practice, the suppression alone is not sufficient to prevent SQL Injection. Blind SQL Injection is a form of SQL Injection that overcomes the lack of error messages. Without the error messages that facilitate SQL Injection, the attacker constructs input strings that probe the target through simple Boolean SQL expressions. The attacker can determine if the syntax and structure of the injection was successful based on whether the query was executed or not. Applied iteratively, the attacker determines how and where the target is vulnerable to SQL Injection. For example, an attacker may try entering something like "username' AND 1=1; --" in an input field. If the result is the same as when the attacker entered "username" in the field, then the attacker knows that the application is vulnerable to SQL Injection. The attacker can then ask yes/no questions from the database server to extract information from it. For example, the attacker can extract table names from a database using the following types of queries: If the above query executes properly, then the attacker knows that the first character in a table name in the database is a letter between m and z. If it doesn't, then the attacker knows that the character must be between a and l (assuming of course that table names only contain alphabetic characters). By performing a binary search on all character positions, the attacker can determine all table names in the database. Subsequently, the attacker may execute an actual attack and send something like:
  • Using Unicode Encoding to Bypass Validation Logic
    An attacker may provide a Unicode string to a system component that is not Unicode aware and use that to circumvent the filter or cause the classifying mechanism to fail to properly understanding the request. That may allow the attacker to slip malicious data past the content filter and/or possibly cause the application to route the request incorrectly.
  • URL Encoding
    This attack targets the encoding of the URL. An attacker can take advantage of the multiple way of encoding an URL and abuse the interpretation of the URL. An URL may contain special character that need special syntax handling in order to be interpreted. Special characters are represented using a percentage character followed by two digits representing the octet code of the original character (%HEX-CODE). For instance US-ASCII space character would be represented with %20. This is often referred as escaped ending or percent-encoding. Since the server decodes the URL from the requests, it may restrict the access to some URL paths by validating and filtering out the URL requests it received. An attacker will try to craft an URL with a sequence of special characters which once interpreted by the server will be equivalent to a forbidden URL. It can be difficult to protect against this attack since the URL can contain other format of encoding such as UTF-8 encoding, Unicode-encoding, etc. The attacker could also subvert the meaning of the URL string request by encoding the data being sent to the server through a GET request. For instance an attacker may subvert the meaning of parameters used in a SQL request and sent through the URL string (See Example section).
  • User-Controlled Filename
    An attack of this type involves an attacker inserting malicious characters (such as a XSS redirection) into a filename, directly or indirectly that is then used by the target software to generate HTML text or other potentially executable content. Many websites rely on user-generated content and dynamically build resources like files, filenames, and URL links directly from user supplied data. In this attack pattern, the attacker uploads code that can execute in the client browser and/or redirect the client browser to a site that the attacker owns. All XSS attack payload variants can be used to pass and exploit these vulnerabilities.
  • Using Escaped Slashes in Alternate Encoding
    This attack targets the use of the backslash in alternate encoding. An attacker can provide a backslash as a leading character and causes a parser to believe that the next character is special. This is called an escape. By using that trick, the attacker tries to exploit alternate ways to encode the same character which leads to filter problems and opens avenues to attack.
  • Using Slashes in Alternate Encoding
    This attack targets the encoding of the Slash characters. An attacker would try to exploit common filtering problems related to the use of the slashes characters to gain access to resources on the target host. Directory-driven systems, such as file systems and databases, typically use the slash character to indicate traversal between directories or other container components. For murky historical reasons, PCs (and, as a result, Microsoft OSs) choose to use a backslash, whereas the UNIX world typically makes use of the forward slash. The schizophrenic result is that many MS-based systems are required to understand both forms of the slash. This gives the attacker many opportunities to discover and abuse a number of common filtering problems. The goal of this pattern is to discover server software that only applies filters to one version, but not the other.
  • Buffer Overflow in an API Call
    This attack targets libraries or shared code modules which are vulnerable to buffer overflow attacks. An attacker who has access to an API may try to embed malicious code in the API function call and exploit a buffer overflow vulnerability in the function's implementation. All clients that make use of the code library thus become vulnerable by association. This has a very broad effect on security across a system, usually affecting more than one software process.
  • Using UTF-8 Encoding to Bypass Validation Logic
    This attack is a specific variation on leveraging alternate encodings to bypass validation logic. This attack leverages the possibility to encode potentially harmful input in UTF-8 and submit it to applications not expecting or effective at validating this encoding standard making input filtering difficult. UTF-8 (8-bit UCS/Unicode Transformation Format) is a variable-length character encoding for Unicode. Legal UTF-8 characters are one to four bytes long. However, early version of the UTF-8 specification got some entries wrong (in some cases it permitted overlong characters). UTF-8 encoders are supposed to use the "shortest possible" encoding, but naive decoders may accept encodings that are longer than necessary. According to the RFC 3629, a particularly subtle form of this attack can be carried out against a parser which performs security-critical validity checks against the UTF-8 encoded form of its input, but interprets certain illegal octet sequences as characters.
  • Web Logs Tampering
    Web Logs Tampering attacks involve an attacker injecting, deleting or otherwise tampering with the contents of web logs typically for the purposes of masking other malicious behavior. Additionally, writing malicious data to log files may target jobs, filters, reports, and other agents that process the logs in an asynchronous attack pattern. This pattern of attack is similar to "Log Injection-Tampering-Forging" except that in this case, the attack is targeting the logs of the web server and not the application.
  • XPath Injection
    An attacker can craft special user-controllable input consisting of XPath expressions to inject the XML database and bypass authentication or glean information that he normally would not be able to. XPath Injection enables an attacker to talk directly to the XML database, thus bypassing the application completely. XPath Injection results from the failure of an application to properly sanitize input used as part of dynamic XPath expressions used to query an XML database. In order to successfully inject XML and retrieve information from a database, an attacker:
  • AJAX Fingerprinting
    This attack utilizes the frequent client-server roundtrips in Ajax conversation to scan a system. While Ajax does not open up new vulnerabilities per se, it does optimize them from an attacker point of view. In many XSS attacks the attacker must get a "hole in one" and successfully exploit the vulnerability on the victim side the first time, once the client is redirected the attacker has many chances to engage in follow on probes, but there is only one first chance. In a widely used web application this is not a major problem because 1 in a 1,000 is good enough in a widely used application. A common first step for an attacker is to footprint the environment to understand what attacks will work. Since footprinting relies on enumeration, the conversational pattern of rapid, multiple requests and responses that are typical in Ajax applications enable an attacker to look for many vulnerabilities, well-known ports, network locations and so on.
  • Embedding Script (XSS) in HTTP Headers
    An attack of this type exploits web applications that generate web content, such as links in a HTML page, based on unvalidated or improperly validated data submitted by other actors. XSS in HTTP Headers attacks target the HTTP headers which are hidden from most users and may not be validated by web applications.
  • OS Command Injection
    In this type of an attack, an adversary injects operating system commands into existing application functions. An application that uses untrusted input to build command strings is vulnerable. An adversary can leverage OS command injection in an application to elevate privileges, execute arbitrary commands and compromise the underlying operating system.
  • Buffer Overflow in Local Command-Line Utilities
    This attack targets command-line utilities available in a number of shells. An attacker can leverage a vulnerability found in a command-line utility to escalate privilege to root.
  • XSS in IMG Tags
    Image tags are an often overlooked, but convenient, means for a Cross Site Scripting attack. The attacker can inject script contents into an image (IMG) tag in order to steal information from a victim's browser and execute malicious scripts.
  • XML Parser Attack
    Applications often need to transform data in and out of the XML format by using an XML parser. It may be possible for an attacker to inject data that may have an adverse effect on the XML parser when it is being processed. These adverse effects may include the parser crashing, consuming too much of a resource, executing too slowly, executing code supplied by an attacker, allowing usage of unintended system functionality, etc. An attacker's goal is to leverage parser failure to his or her advantage. In some cases it may be possible to jump from the data plane to the control plane via bad data being passed to an XML parser. [R.99.1]

    description a. vMA and Service Console update for newt to 0.52.2-12.el5_4.1 Newt is a programming library for color text mode, widget based user interfaces. Newt can be used to add stacked windows, entry widgets, checkboxes, radio buttons, labels, plain text fields, scrollbars, etc., to text mode user interfaces. A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way newt processes content that is to be displayed in a text dialog box. A local attacker could issue a specially crafted text dialog box display request (direct or via a custom application), leading to a denial of service (application crash) or, potentially, arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running the application using the newt library. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2905 to this issue. b. vMA and Service Console update for vMA package nfs-utils to 1.0.9-42.el5 The nfs-utils package provides a daemon for the kernel NFS server and related tools. It was discovered that nfs-utils did not use tcp_wrappers correctly. Certain hosts access rules defined in '/etc/hosts.allow' and '/etc/hosts.deny' may not have been honored, possibly allowing remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2008-4552 to this issue. c. vMA and Service Console package glib2 updated to 2.12.3-4.el5_3.1 GLib is the low-level core library that forms the basis for projects such as GTK+ and GNOME. It provides data structure handling for C, portability wrappers, and interfaces for such runtime functionality as an event loop, threads, dynamic loading, and an object system. Multiple integer overflows in glib/gbase64.c in GLib before 2.20 allow context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long string that is converted either from or to a base64 representation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2008-4316 to this issue. d. vMA and Service Console update for openssl to 0.9.8e-12.el5 SSL is a toolkit implementing SSL v2/v3 and TLS protocols with full- strength cryptography world-wide. Multiple denial of service flaws were discovered in OpenSSL's DTLS implementation. A remote attacker could use these flaws to cause a DTLS server to use excessive amounts of memory, or crash on an invalid memory access or NULL pointer dereference. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-1377, CVE-2009-1378, CVE-2009-1379, CVE-2009-1386, CVE-2009-1387 to these issues. An input validation flaw was found in the handling of the BMPString and UniversalString ASN1 string types in OpenSSL's ASN1_STRING_print_ex() function. An attacker could use this flaw to create a specially crafted X.509 certificate that could cause applications using the affected function to crash when printing certificate contents. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-0590 to this issue. e. vMA and Service Console package bind updated to 9.3.6-4.P1.el5_4.1 It was discovered that BIND was incorrectly caching responses without performing proper DNSSEC validation, when those responses were received during the resolution of a recursive client query that requested DNSSEC records but indicated that checking should be disabled. A remote attacker could use this flaw to bypass the DNSSEC validation check and perform a cache poisoning attack if the target BIND server was receiving such client queries. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-4022 to this issue. f. vMA and Service Console package expat updated to 1.95.8-8.3.el5_4.2. Two buffer over-read flaws were found in the way Expat handled malformed UTF-8 sequences when processing XML files. A specially- crafted XML file could cause applications using Expat to fail while parsing the file. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-3560 and CVE-2009-3720 to these issues. g. vMA and Service Console package openssh update to 4.3p2-36.el5_4.2 A Red Hat specific patch used in the openssh packages as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 (RHSA-2009:1287) loosened certain ownership requirements for directories used as arguments for the ChrootDirectory configuration options. A malicious user that also has or previously had non-chroot shell access to a system could possibly use this flaw to escalate their privileges and run commands as any system user. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2904 to this issue. h. vMA and Service Console package ntp updated to ntp-4.2.2p1-9.el5_4.1.i386.rpm A flaw was discovered in the way ntpd handled certain malformed NTP packets. ntpd logged information about all such packets and replied with an NTP packet that was treated as malformed when received by another ntpd. A remote attacker could use this flaw to create an NTP packet reply loop between two ntpd servers through a malformed packet with a spoofed source IP address and port, causing ntpd on those servers to use excessive amounts of CPU time and fill disk space with log messages. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-3563 to this issue. i. vMA update for package kernel to 2.6.18-164.9.1.el5 Updated vMA package kernel addresses the security issues listed below.

ESXi userworld update for ntp The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize the time of a computer client or server to another server or reference time source. A vulnerability in ntpd could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service (CPU and bandwidth consumption) by using MODE_PRIVATE to send a spoofed (1) request or (2) response packet that triggers a continuous exchange of MODE_PRIVATE error responses between two NTP daemons. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-3563 to this issue. c. Service Console package openssl updated to 0.9.8e-12.el5_4.1 OpenSSL is a toolkit implementing SSL v2/v3 and TLS protocols with full-strength cryptography world-wide. A memory leak in the zlib could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via vectors that trigger incorrect calls to the CRYPTO_cleanup_all_ex_data function. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-4355 to this issue. A vulnerability was discovered which may allow remote attackers to spoof certificates by using MD2 design flaws to generate a hash collision in less than brute-force time. NOTE: the scope of this issue is currently limited because the amount of computation required is still large. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2409 to this issue. This update also includes security fixes that were first addressed in version openssl-0.9.8e-12.el5.i386.rpm. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-0590, CVE-2009-1377, CVE-2009-1378, CVE-2009-1379, CVE-2009-1386 and CVE-2009-1387 to these issues. d. Service Console update for krb5 to 1.6.1-36.el5_4.1 and pam_krb5 to 2.2.14-15. Kerberos is a network authentication protocol. It is designed to provide strong authentication for client/server applications by using secret-key cryptography. Multiple integer underflows in the AES and RC4 functionality in the crypto library could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code by providing ciphertext with a length that is too short to be valid. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-4212 to this issue. The service console package for pam_krb5 is updated to version pam_krb5-2.2.14-15. This update fixes a flaw found in pam_krb5. In some non-default configurations (specifically, where pam_krb5 would be the first module to prompt for a password), a remote attacker could use this flaw to recognize valid usernames, which would aid a dictionary-based password guess attack. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-1384 to this issue. e. Service Console package bind updated to 9.3.6-4.P1.el5_4.2 BIND (Berkeley Internet Name Daemon) is by far the most widely used Domain Name System (DNS) software on the Internet. A vulnerability was discovered which could allow remote attacker to add the Authenticated Data (AD) flag to a forged NXDOMAIN response for an existing domain. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0097 to this issue. A vulnerability was discovered which could allow remote attackers to conduct DNS cache poisoning attacks by receiving a recursive client query and sending a response that contains CNAME or DNAME records, which do not have the intended validation before caching. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0290 to this issue. A vulnerability was found in the way that bind handles out-of- bailiwick data accompanying a secure response without re-fetching from the original source, which could allow remote attackers to have an unspecified impact via a crafted response. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0382 to this issue. NOTE: ESX does not use the BIND name service daemon by default. f. Service Console package gcc updated to 3.2.3-60 The GNU Compiler Collection includes front ends for C, C++, Objective-C, Fortran, Java, and Ada, as well as libraries for these languages GNU Libtool's ltdl.c attempts to open .la library files in the current working directory. This could allow a local user to gain privileges via a Trojan horse file. The GNU C Compiler collection (gcc) provided in ESX contains a statically linked version of the vulnerable code, and is being replaced. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-3736 to this issue. g. Service Console package gzip update to 1.3.3-15.rhel3 gzip is a software application used for file compression An integer underflow in gzip's unlzw function on 64-bit platforms may allow a remote attacker to trigger an array index error leading to a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted LZW compressed file. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0001 to this issue. h. Service Console package sudo updated to 1.6.9p17-6.el5_4 Sudo (su 'do') allows a system administrator to delegate authority to give certain users (or groups of users) the ability to run some (or all) commands as root or another user while providing an audit trail of the commands and their arguments. When a pseudo-command is enabled, sudo permits a match between the name of the pseudo-command and the name of an executable file in an arbitrary directory, which allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted executable file. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0426 to this issue. When the runas_default option is used, sudo does not properly set group memberships, which allows local users to gain privileges via a sudo command. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-0427 to this issue.

    NASL id SUSE_11_0_KERNEL-100203.NASL
    description This kernel update for openSUSE 11.0 fixes some bugs and several security problems. The following security issues are fixed: CVE-2009-4536: drivers/net/e1000/e1000_main.c in the e1000 driver in the Linux kernel handles Ethernet frames that exceed the MTU by processing certain trailing payload data as if it were a complete frame, which allows remote attackers to bypass packet filters via a large packet with a crafted payload. CVE-2009-4538: drivers/net/e1000e/netdev.c in the e1000e driver in the Linux kernel does not properly check the size of an Ethernet frame that exceeds the MTU, which allows remote attackers to have an unspecified impact via crafted packets. CVE-2010-0007: Missing CAP_NET_ADMIN checks in the ebtables netfilter code might have allowed local attackers to modify bridge firewall settings. CVE-2010-0003: An information leakage on fatal signals on x86_64 machines was fixed. CVE-2009-4138: drivers/firewire/ohci.c in the Linux kernel, when packet-per-buffer mode is used, allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unknown other impact via an unspecified ioctl associated with receiving an ISO packet that contains zero in the payload-length field. CVE-2009-4308: The ext4_decode_error function in fs/ext4/super.c in the ext4 filesystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.32 allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference), and possibly have unspecified other impact, via a crafted read-only filesystem that lacks a journal. CVE-2009-3939: The poll_mode_io file for the megaraid_sas driver in the Linux kernel 2.6.31.6 and earlier has world-writable permissions, which allows local users to change the I/O mode of the driver by modifying this file. CVE-2009-4021: The fuse_direct_io function in fs/fuse/file.c in the fuse subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.32-rc7 might allow attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference and OOPS) via vectors possibly related to a memory-consumption attack. CVE-2009-3547: A race condition in the pipe(2) systemcall could be used by local attackers to hang the machine. The kernel in Moblin 2.0 uses NULL ptr protection which avoids code execution possbilities. CVE-2009-2903: Memory leak in the appletalk subsystem in the Linux kernel 2.4.x through 2.4.37.6 and 2.6.x through 2.6.31, when the appletalk and ipddp modules are loaded but the ipddp'N' device is not found, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via IP-DDP datagrams. CVE-2009-3621: net/unix/af_unix.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.31.4 and earlier allows local users to cause a denial of service (system hang) by creating an abstract-namespace AF_UNIX listening socket, performing a shutdown operation on this socket, and then performing a series of connect operations to this socket. CVE-2009-3612: The tcf_fill_node function in net/sched/cls_api.c in the netlink subsystem in the Linux kernel 2.6.x before 2.6.32-rc5, and 2.4.37.6 and earlier, does not initialize a certain tcm__pad2 structure member, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via unspecified vectors. CVE-2009-3620: The ATI Rage 128 (aka r128) driver in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31-git11 does not properly verify Concurrent Command Engine (CCE) state initialization, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via unspecified ioctl calls. CVE-2009-3726: The nfs4_proc_lock function in fs/nfs/nfs4proc.c in the NFSv4 client in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31-rc4 allows remote NFS servers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and panic) by sending a certain response containing incorrect file attributes, which trigger attempted use of an open file that lacks NFSv4 state. CVE-2009-3286: NFSv4 in the Linux kernel 2.6.18, and possibly other versions, does not properly clean up an inode when an O_EXCL create fails, which causes files to be created with insecure settings such as setuid bits, and possibly allows local users to gain privileges, related to the execution of the do_open_permission function even when a create fails. CVE-2009-2910: arch/x86/ia32/ia32entry.S in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31.4 on the x86_64 platform does not clear certain kernel registers before a return to user mode, which allows local users to read register values from an earlier process by switching an ia32 process to 64-bit mode. CVE-2009-3238: The get_random_int function in drivers/char/random.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.30 produces insufficiently random numbers, which allows attackers to predict the return value, and possibly defeat protection mechanisms based on randomization, via vectors that leverage the function's tendency to 'return the same value over and over again for long stretches of time.' CVE-2009-2848: The execve function in the Linux kernel, possibly 2.6.30-rc6 and earlier, does not properly clear the current->clear_child_tid pointer, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly gain privileges via a clone system call with CLONE_CHILD_SETTID or CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID enabled, which is not properly handled during thread creation and exit. CVE-2009-3002: The Linux kernel before 2.6.31-rc7 does not initialize certain data structures within getname functions, which allows local users to read the contents of some kernel memory locations by calling getsockname on (1) an AF_APPLETALK socket, related to the atalk_getname function in net/appletalk/ddp.c; (2) an AF_IRDA socket, related to the irda_getname function in net/irda/af_irda.c; (3) an AF_ECONET socket, related to the econet_getname function in net/econet/af_econet.c; (4) an AF_NETROM socket, related to the nr_getname function in net/netrom/af_netrom.c; (5) an AF_ROSE socket, related to the rose_getname function in net/rose/af_rose.c; or (6) a raw CAN socket, related to the raw_getname function in net/can/raw.c. 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.

    title openSUSE Security Update : kernel (kernel-1908)
  • NASL family Oracle Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2009-1548.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1548 : Updated kernel packages that fix multiple 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 : * a system with SELinux enforced was more permissive in allowing local users in the unconfined_t domain to map low memory areas even if the mmap_min_addr restriction was enabled. This could aid in the local exploitation of NULL pointer dereference bugs. (CVE-2009-2695, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the eCryptfs implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause a local denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2009-2908, Important) * a flaw was found in the NFSv4 implementation. The kernel would do an unnecessary permission check after creating a file. This check would usually fail and leave the file with the permission bits set to random values. Note: This is a server-side only issue. (CVE-2009-3286, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in each of the following functions in the Linux kernel: pipe_read_open(), pipe_write_open(), and pipe_rdwr_open(). When the mutex lock is not held, the i_pipe pointer could be released by other processes before it is used to update the pipe's reader and writer counters. This could lead to a local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-3547, Important) * a flaw was found in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel. pci_unmap_single() presented a memory leak that could lead to IOMMU space exhaustion and a system crash. An attacker on the local network could abuse this flaw by using jumbo frames for large amounts of network traffic. (CVE-2009-3613, Important) * missing initialization flaws were found in the Linux kernel. Padding data in several core network structures was not initialized properly before being sent to user-space. These flaws could lead to information leaks. (CVE-2009-3228, Moderate) Bug fixes : * with network bonding in the 'balance-tlb' or 'balance-alb' mode, the primary setting for the primary slave device was lost when said device was brought down.

    description This update fixes a several security issues and various bugs in the SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP 2 kernel. The following security issues were fixed: CVE-2009-3939: A sysctl variable of the megaraid_sas driver was worldwriteable, allowing local users to cause a denial of service or potential code execution. - The collect_rx_frame function in drivers/isdn/hisax/hfc_usb.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.32-rc7 allows attackers to have an unspecified impact via a crafted HDLC packet that arrives over ISDN and triggers a buffer under-read. (CVE-2009-4005) - A negative offset in a ioctl in the GDTH RAID driver was fixed. (CVE-2009-3080) - The fuse_direct_io function in fs/fuse/file.c in the fuse subsystem in the Linux kernel might allow attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference and OOPS) via vectors possibly related to a memory-consumption attack. (CVE-2009-4021) - The dbg_lvl file for the megaraid_sas driver in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27 has world-writable permissions, which allows local users to change the (1) behavior and (2) logging level of the driver by modifying this file. (CVE-2009-3889) - Memory leak in the appletalk subsystem in the Linux kernel when the appletalk and ipddp modules are loaded but the ipddp'N' device is not found, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via IP-DDP datagrams. (CVE-2009-2903) - net/unix/af_unix.c in the Linux kernel allows local users to cause a denial of service (system hang) by creating an abstract-namespace AF_UNIX listening socket, performing a shutdown operation on this socket, and then performing a series of connect operations to this socket. (CVE-2009-3621) - The tcf_fill_node function in net/sched/cls_api.c in the netlink subsystem in the Linux kernel 2.6.x before 2.6.32-rc5, and 2.4.37.6 and earlier, does not initialize a certain tcm__pad2 structure member, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via unspecified vectors. NOTE: this issue existed because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2005-4881. (CVE-2009-3612 / CVE-2005-4881) - The ATI Rage 128 (aka r128) driver in the Linux kernel does not properly verify Concurrent Command Engine (CCE) state initialization, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via unspecified ioctl calls. (CVE-2009-3620) - The nfs4_proc_lock function in fs/nfs/nfs4proc.c in the NFSv4 client in the Linux kernel allows remote NFS servers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and panic) by sending a certain response containing incorrect file attributes, which trigger attempted use of an open file that lacks NFSv4 state. (CVE-2009-3726) - The swiotlb functionality in the r8169 driver in drivers/net/r8169.c in the Linux kernel allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (IOMMU space exhaustion and system crash) by using jumbo frames for a large amount of network traffic, as demonstrated by a flood ping. (CVE-2009-3613) The rio and sx serial multiport card drivers were disabled via a modprobe blacklist due to severe bugs. For a full list of changes, please read the RPM changelog.

    description Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux 2.6 kernel : fs/namei.c in Linux kernel 2.6.18 through 2.6.34 does not always follow NFS automount symlinks, which allows attackers to have an unknown impact, related to LOOKUP_FOLLOW. (CVE-2010-1088) The tc_fill_tclass function in net/sched/sch_api.c in the tc subsystem in the Linux kernel 2.4.x before 2.4.37.6 and 2.6.x before 2.6.31-rc9 does not initialize certain (1) tcm__pad1 and (2) tcm__pad2 structure members, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via unspecified vectors. (CVE-2009-3228) The do_pages_move function in mm/migrate.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.33-rc7 does not validate node values, which allows local users to read arbitrary kernel memory locations, cause a denial of service (OOPS), and possibly have unspecified other impact by specifying a node that is not part of the kernel node set. (CVE-2010-0415) The ATI Rage 128 (aka r128) driver in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31-git11 does not properly verify Concurrent Command Engine (CCE) state initialization, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via unspecified ioctl calls. (CVE-2009-3620) The wake_futex_pi function in kernel/futex.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.33-rc7 does not properly handle certain unlock operations for a Priority Inheritance (PI) futex, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) and possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors involving modification of the futex value from user space. (CVE-2010-0622) The kvm_arch_vcpu_ioctl_set_sregs function in the KVM in Linux kernel 2.6 before 2.6.30, when running on x86 systems, does not validate the page table root in a KVM_SET_SREGS call, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash or hang) via a crafted cr3 value, which triggers a NULL pointer dereference in the gfn_to_rmap function. (CVE-2009-2287) The handle_dr function in arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31.1 does not properly verify the Current Privilege Level (CPL) before accessing a debug register, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (trap) on the host OS via a crafted application. (CVE-2009-3722) The ext4_decode_error function in fs/ext4/super.c in the ext4 filesystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.32 allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference), and possibly have unspecified other impact, via a crafted read-only filesystem that lacks a journal. (CVE-2009-4308) The eisa_eeprom_read function in the parisc isa-eeprom component (drivers/parisc/eisa_eeprom.c) in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31-rc6 allows local users to access restricted memory via a negative ppos argument, which bypasses a check that assumes that ppos is positive and causes an out-of-bounds read in the readb function. (CVE-2009-2846) Multiple buffer overflows in fs/nfsd/nfs4xdr.c in the XDR implementation in the NFS server in the Linux kernel before 2.6.34-rc6 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted NFSv4 compound WRITE request, related to the read_buf and nfsd4_decode_compound functions. (CVE-2010-2521) mm/shmem.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.28-rc8, when strict overcommit is enabled and CONFIG_SECURITY is disabled, does not properly handle the export of shmemfs objects by knfsd, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and knfsd crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2010-1643. (CVE-2008-7256) The release_one_tty function in drivers/char/tty_io.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.34-rc4 omits certain required calls to the put_pid function, which has unspecified impact and local attack vectors. (CVE-2010-1162) mm/shmem.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.28-rc3, when strict overcommit is enabled, does not properly handle the export of shmemfs objects by knfsd, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and knfsd crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors. (CVE-2010-1643) The sctp_process_unk_param function in net/sctp/sm_make_chunk.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.33.3 and earlier, when SCTP is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via an SCTPChunkInit packet containing multiple invalid parameters that require a large amount of error data. (CVE-2010-1173) The Transparent Inter-Process Communication (TIPC) functionality in Linux kernel 2.6.16-rc1 through 2.6.33, and possibly other versions, allows local users to cause a denial of service (kernel OOPS) by sending datagrams through AF_TIPC before entering network mode, which triggers a NULL pointer dereference. (CVE-2010-1187) The sctp_process_unk_param function in net/sctp/sm_make_chunk.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.33.3 and earlier, when SCTP is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via an SCTPChunkInit packet containing multiple invalid parameters that require a large amount of error data. (CVE-2010-1173) fs/cifs/cifssmb.c in the CIFS implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.34-rc4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via an SMB response packet with an invalid CountHigh value, as demonstrated by a response from an OS/2 server, related to the CIFSSMBWrite and CIFSSMBWrite2 functions. (CVE-2010-2248) Buffer overflow in the ecryptfs_uid_hash macro in fs/ecryptfs/messaging.c in the eCryptfs subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.35 might allow local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (system crash) via unspecified vectors. (CVE-2010-2492) The xfs_swapext function in fs/xfs/xfs_dfrag.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.35 does not properly check the file descriptors passed to the SWAPEXT ioctl, which allows local users to leverage write access and obtain read access by swapping one file into another file. (CVE-2010-2226) The gfs2_dirent_find_space function in fs/gfs2/dir.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.35 uses an incorrect size value in calculations associated with sentinel directory entries, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and panic) and possibly have unspecified other impact by renaming a file in a GFS2 filesystem, related to the gfs2_rename function in fs/gfs2/ops_inode.c. (CVE-2010-2798) The do_anonymous_page function in mm/memory.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27.52, 2.6.32.x before 2.6.32.19, 2.6.34.x before 2.6.34.4, and 2.6.35.x before 2.6.35.2 does not properly separate the stack and the heap, which allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code by writing to the bottom page of a shared memory segment, as demonstrated by a memory-exhaustion attack against the X.Org X server. (CVE-2010-2240) The drm_ioctl function in drivers/gpu/drm/drm_drv.c in the Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27.53, 2.6.32.x before 2.6.32.21, 2.6.34.x before 2.6.34.6, and 2.6.35.x before 2.6.35.4 allows local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory by requesting a large memory-allocation amount. (CVE-2010-2803) Integer overflow in net/can/bcm.c in the Controller Area Network (CAN) implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27.53, 2.6.32.x before 2.6.32.21, 2.6.34.x before 2.6.34.6, and 2.6.35.x before 2.6.35.4 allows attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (system crash) via crafted CAN traffic. (CVE-2010-2959) Double free vulnerability in the snd_seq_oss_open function in sound/core/seq/oss/seq_oss_init.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36-rc4 might allow local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via an unsuccessful attempt to open the /dev/sequencer device. (CVE-2010-3080) A vulnerability in Linux kernel caused by insecure allocation of user space memory when translating system call inputs to 64-bit. A stack pointer underflow can occur when using the compat_alloc_user_space method with an arbitrary length input. (CVE-2010-3081) The IA32 system call emulation functionality in arch/x86/ia32/ia32entry.S in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36-rc4-git2 on the x86_64 platform does not zero extend the %eax register after the 32-bit entry path to ptrace is used, which allows local users to gain privileges by triggering an out-of-bounds access to the system call table using the %rax register. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of a CVE-2007-4573 regression.

  • NASL family CentOS Local Security Checks
    NASL id CENTOS_RHSA-2009-1548.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple 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 : * a system with SELinux enforced was more permissive in allowing local users in the unconfined_t domain to map low memory areas even if the mmap_min_addr restriction was enabled. This could aid in the local exploitation of NULL pointer dereference bugs. (CVE-2009-2695, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the eCryptfs implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause a local denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2009-2908, Important) * a flaw was found in the NFSv4 implementation. The kernel would do an unnecessary permission check after creating a file. This check would usually fail and leave the file with the permission bits set to random values. Note: This is a server-side only issue. (CVE-2009-3286, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in each of the following functions in the Linux kernel: pipe_read_open(), pipe_write_open(), and pipe_rdwr_open(). When the mutex lock is not held, the i_pipe pointer could be released by other processes before it is used to update the pipe's reader and writer counters. This could lead to a local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-3547, Important) * a flaw was found in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel. pci_unmap_single() presented a memory leak that could lead to IOMMU space exhaustion and a system crash. An attacker on the local network could abuse this flaw by using jumbo frames for large amounts of network traffic. (CVE-2009-3613, Important) * missing initialization flaws were found in the Linux kernel. Padding data in several core network structures was not initialized properly before being sent to user-space. These flaws could lead to information leaks. (CVE-2009-3228, Moderate) Bug fixes : * with network bonding in the 'balance-tlb' or 'balance-alb' mode, the primary setting for the primary slave device was lost when said device was brought down. Bringing the slave back up did not restore the primary setting. (BZ#517971) * some faulty serial device hardware caused systems running the kernel-xen kernel to take a very long time to boot. (BZ#524153) * a caching bug in nfs_readdir() may have caused NFS clients to see duplicate files or not see all files in a directory. (BZ#526960) * the RHSA-2009:1243 update removed the mpt_msi_enable option, preventing certain scripts from running. This update adds the option back. (BZ#526963) * an iptables rule with the recent module and a hit count value greater than the ip_pkt_list_tot parameter (the default is 20), did not have any effect over packets, as the hit count could not be reached. (BZ#527434) * a check has been added to the IPv4 code to make sure that rt is not NULL, to help prevent future bugs in functions that call ip_append_data() from being exploitable. (BZ#527436) * a kernel panic occurred in certain conditions after reconfiguring a tape drive's block size. (BZ#528133) * when using the Linux Virtual Server (LVS) in a master and backup configuration, and propagating active connections on the master to the backup, the connection timeout value on the backup was hard-coded to 180 seconds, meaning connection information on the backup was soon lost. This could prevent the successful failover of connections. The timeout value can now be set via 'ipvsadm --set'. (BZ#528645) * a bug in nfs4_do_open_expired() could have caused the reclaimer thread on an NFSv4 client to enter an infinite loop. (BZ#529162) * MSI interrupts may not have been delivered for r8169 based network cards that have MSI interrupts enabled. This bug only affected certain systems. (BZ#529366) 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.

On AMD64 systems, 32-bit processes could access and read certain 64-bit registers by temporarily switching themselves to 64-bit mode. (CVE-2009-2910, Moderate) * the unix_stream_connect() function in the Linux kernel did not check if a UNIX domain socket was in the shutdown state. This could lead to a deadlock. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2009-3621, Moderate) This update also fixes the following bugs : * an iptables rule with the recent module and a hit count value greater than the ip_pkt_list_tot parameter (the default is 20), did not have any effect over packets, as the hit count could not be reached. (BZ#529306) * in environments that use dual-controller storage devices with the cciss driver, Device-Mapper Multipath maps could not be detected and configured, due to the cciss driver not exporting the bus attribute via sysfs. This attribute is now exported. (BZ#529309) * the kernel crashed with a divide error when a certain joystick was attached. (BZ#532027) * a bug in the mptctl_do_mpt_command() function in the mpt driver may have resulted in crashes during boot on i386 systems with certain adapters using the mpt driver, and also running the hugemem kernel. (BZ#533798) * on certain hardware, the igb driver was unable to detect link statuses correctly. This may have caused problems for network bonding, such as failover not occurring. (BZ#534105) * the RHSA-2009:1024 update introduced a regression. After updating to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.8 and rebooting, network links often failed to be brought up for interfaces using the forcedeth driver. 'no link during initialization' messages may have been logged. (BZ#534112) * the RHSA-2009:1024 update introduced a second regression. On certain systems, PS/2 keyboards failed to work. (BZ#537344) * a bug in checksum offload calculations could have crashed the bnx2x firmware when the iptable_nat module was loaded, causing network traffic to stop. (BZ#537013) * a check has been added to the IPv4 code to make sure that the routing table data structure, rt, is not NULL, to help prevent future bugs in functions that call ip_append_data() from being exploitable. (BZ#537016) * possible kernel pointer dereferences on systems with several NFS mounts (a mixture of '-o lock' and '-o nolock'), which in rare cases may have caused a system crash, have been resolved. (BZ#537017) 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 CentOS 4 : kernel (CESA-2009:1671)
  • NASL family CentOS Local Security Checks
    NASL id CENTOS_RHSA-2009-1550.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues and multiple bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3. 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 : * when fput() was called to close a socket, the __scm_destroy() function in the Linux kernel could make indirect recursive calls to itself. This could, potentially, lead to a denial of service issue. (CVE-2008-5029, Important) * the sendmsg() function in the Linux kernel did not block during UNIX socket garbage collection. This could, potentially, lead to a local denial of service. (CVE-2008-5300, Important) * the exit_notify() function in the Linux kernel did not properly reset the exit signal if a process executed a set user ID (setuid) application before exiting. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to elevate their privileges. (CVE-2009-1337, Important) * a flaw was found in the 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 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) * it was discovered that, when executing a new process, the clear_child_tid pointer in the Linux kernel is not cleared. If this pointer points to a writable portion of the memory of the new program, the kernel could corrupt four bytes of memory, possibly leading to a local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-2848, Important) * missing initialization flaws were found in getname() implementations in the IrDA sockets, AppleTalk DDP protocol, NET/ROM protocol, and ROSE protocol implementations in the Linux kernel. Certain data structures in these getname() implementations were not initialized properly before being copied to user-space. These flaws could lead to an information leak. (CVE-2009-3002, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in each of the following functions in the Linux kernel: pipe_read_open(), pipe_write_open(), and pipe_rdwr_open(). When the mutex lock is not held, the i_pipe pointer could be released by other processes before it is used to update the pipe's reader and writer counters. This could lead to a local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-3547, Important) Bug fixes : * this update adds the mmap_min_addr tunable and restriction checks to help prevent unprivileged users from creating new memory mappings below the minimum address. This can help prevent the exploitation of NULL pointer dereference bugs. Note that mmap_min_addr is set to zero (disabled) by default for backwards compatibility. (BZ#512642) * a bridge reference count problem in IPv6 has been fixed. (BZ#457010) * enforce null-termination of user-supplied arguments to setsockopt(). (BZ#505514) * the gcc flag '-fno-delete-null-pointer-checks' was added to the kernel build options. This prevents gcc from optimizing out NULL pointer checks after the first use of a pointer. NULL pointer bugs are often exploited by attackers. Keeping these checks is a safety measure. (BZ#511185) * a check has been added to the IPv4 code to make sure that rt is not NULL, to help prevent future bugs in functions that call ip_append_data() from being exploitable. (BZ#520300) 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 Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service, sensitive memory leak or privilege escalation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2009-2846 Michael Buesch noticed a typing issue in the eisa-eeprom driver for the hppa architecture. Local users could exploit this issue to gain access to restricted memory. - CVE-2009-2847 Ulrich Drepper noticed an issue in the do_sigalstack routine on 64-bit systems. This issue allows local users to gain access to potentially sensitive memory on the kernel stack. - CVE-2009-2848 Eric Dumazet discovered an issue in the execve path, where the clear_child_tid variable was not being properly cleared. Local users could exploit this issue to cause a denial of service (memory corruption). - CVE-2009-2849 Neil Brown discovered an issue in the sysfs interface to md devices. When md arrays are not active, local users can exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service (oops). - CVE-2009-2903 Mark Smith discovered a memory leak in the appletalk implementation. When the appletalk and ipddp modules are loaded, but no ipddp'N' device is found, remote attackers can cause a denial of service by consuming large amounts of system memory. - CVE-2009-2908 Loic Minier discovered an issue in the eCryptfs filesystem. A local user can cause a denial of service (kernel oops) by causing a dentry value to go negative. - CVE-2009-2909 Arjan van de Ven discovered an issue in the AX.25 protocol implementation. A specially crafted call to setsockopt() can result in a denial of service (kernel oops). - CVE-2009-2910 Jan Beulich discovered the existence of a sensitive kernel memory leak. Systems running the 'amd64' kernel do not properly sanitize registers for 32-bit processes. - CVE-2009-3001 Jiri Slaby fixed a sensitive memory leak issue in the ANSI/IEEE 802.2 LLC implementation. This is not exploitable in the Debian lenny kernel as root privileges are required to exploit this issue. - CVE-2009-3002 Eric Dumazet fixed several sensitive memory leaks in the IrDA, X.25 PLP (Rose), NET/ROM, Acorn Econet/AUN, and Controller Area Network (CAN) implementations. Local users can exploit these issues to gain access to kernel memory. - CVE-2009-3228 Eric Dumazet reported an instance of uninitialized kernel memory in the network packet scheduler. Local users may be able to exploit this issue to read the contents of sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2009-3238 Linus Torvalds provided a change to the get_random_int() function to increase its randomness. - CVE-2009-3286 Eric Paris discovered an issue with the NFSv4 server implementation. When an O_EXCL create fails, files may be left with corrupted permissions, possibly granting unintentional privileges to other local users. - CVE-2009-3547 Earl Chew discovered a NULL pointer dereference issue in the pipe_rdwr_open function which can be used by local users to gain elevated privileges. - CVE-2009-3612 Jiri Pirko discovered a typo in the initialization of a structure in the netlink subsystem that may allow local users to gain access to sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2009-3613 Alistair Strachan reported an issue in the r8169 driver. Remote users can cause a denial of service (IOMMU space exhaustion and system crash) by transmitting a large amount of jumbo frames. - CVE-2009-3620 Ben Hutchings discovered an issue in the DRM manager for ATI Rage 128 graphics adapters. Local users may be able to exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference). - CVE-2009-3621 Tomoki Sekiyama discovered a deadlock condition in the UNIX domain socket implementation. Local users can exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service (system hang).

  • NASL family Mandriva Local Security Checks
    NASL id MANDRIVA_MDVSA-2010-188.NASL
    description Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux 2.6 kernel : fs/namei.c in Linux kernel 2.6.18 through 2.6.34 does not always follow NFS automount symlinks, which allows attackers to have an unknown impact, related to LOOKUP_FOLLOW. (CVE-2010-1088) The tc_fill_tclass function in net/sched/sch_api.c in the tc subsystem in the Linux kernel 2.4.x before 2.4.37.6 and 2.6.x before 2.6.31-rc9 does not initialize certain (1) tcm__pad1 and (2) tcm__pad2 structure members, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via unspecified vectors. (CVE-2009-3228) The do_pages_move function in mm/migrate.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.33-rc7 does not validate node values, which allows local users to read arbitrary kernel memory locations, cause a denial of service (OOPS), and possibly have unspecified other impact by specifying a node that is not part of the kernel node set. (CVE-2010-0415) The ATI Rage 128 (aka r128) driver in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31-git11 does not properly verify Concurrent Command Engine (CCE) state initialization, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via unspecified ioctl calls. (CVE-2009-3620) The wake_futex_pi function in kernel/futex.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.33-rc7 does not properly handle certain unlock operations for a Priority Inheritance (PI) futex, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) and possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors involving modification of the futex value from user space. (CVE-2010-0622) The kvm_arch_vcpu_ioctl_set_sregs function in the KVM in Linux kernel 2.6 before 2.6.30, when running on x86 systems, does not validate the page table root in a KVM_SET_SREGS call, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash or hang) via a crafted cr3 value, which triggers a NULL pointer dereference in the gfn_to_rmap function. (CVE-2009-2287) The handle_dr function in arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31.1 does not properly verify the Current Privilege Level (CPL) before accessing a debug register, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (trap) on the host OS via a crafted application. (CVE-2009-3722) The ext4_decode_error function in fs/ext4/super.c in the ext4 filesystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.32 allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference), and possibly have unspecified other impact, via a crafted read-only filesystem that lacks a journal. (CVE-2009-4308) The eisa_eeprom_read function in the parisc isa-eeprom component (drivers/parisc/eisa_eeprom.c) in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31-rc6 allows local users to access restricted memory via a negative ppos argument, which bypasses a check that assumes that ppos is positive and causes an out-of-bounds read in the readb function. (CVE-2009-2846) Multiple buffer overflows in fs/nfsd/nfs4xdr.c in the XDR implementation in the NFS server in the Linux kernel before 2.6.34-rc6 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted NFSv4 compound WRITE request, related to the read_buf and nfsd4_decode_compound functions. (CVE-2010-2521) mm/shmem.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.28-rc8, when strict overcommit is enabled and CONFIG_SECURITY is disabled, does not properly handle the export of shmemfs objects by knfsd, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and knfsd crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2010-1643. (CVE-2008-7256) The release_one_tty function in drivers/char/tty_io.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.34-rc4 omits certain required calls to the put_pid function, which has unspecified impact and local attack vectors. (CVE-2010-1162) mm/shmem.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.28-rc3, when strict overcommit is enabled, does not properly handle the export of shmemfs objects by knfsd, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and knfsd crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors. (CVE-2010-1643) The sctp_process_unk_param function in net/sctp/sm_make_chunk.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.33.3 and earlier, when SCTP is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via an SCTPChunkInit packet containing multiple invalid parameters that require a large amount of error data. (CVE-2010-1173) The Transparent Inter-Process Communication (TIPC) functionality in Linux kernel 2.6.16-rc1 through 2.6.33, and possibly other versions, allows local users to cause a denial of service (kernel OOPS) by sending datagrams through AF_TIPC before entering network mode, which triggers a NULL pointer dereference. (CVE-2010-1187) The sctp_process_unk_param function in net/sctp/sm_make_chunk.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.33.3 and earlier, when SCTP is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via an SCTPChunkInit packet containing multiple invalid parameters that require a large amount of error data. (CVE-2010-1173) fs/cifs/cifssmb.c in the CIFS implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.34-rc4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via an SMB response packet with an invalid CountHigh value, as demonstrated by a response from an OS/2 server, related to the CIFSSMBWrite and CIFSSMBWrite2 functions. (CVE-2010-2248) Buffer overflow in the ecryptfs_uid_hash macro in fs/ecryptfs/messaging.c in the eCryptfs subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.35 might allow local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (system crash) via unspecified vectors. (CVE-2010-2492) The xfs_swapext function in fs/xfs/xfs_dfrag.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.35 does not properly check the file descriptors passed to the SWAPEXT ioctl, which allows local users to leverage write access and obtain read access by swapping one file into another file. (CVE-2010-2226) The gfs2_dirent_find_space function in fs/gfs2/dir.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.35 uses an incorrect size value in calculations associated with sentinel directory entries, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and panic) and possibly have unspecified other impact by renaming a file in a GFS2 filesystem, related to the gfs2_rename function in fs/gfs2/ops_inode.c. (CVE-2010-2798) The do_anonymous_page function in mm/memory.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27.52, 2.6.32.x before 2.6.32.19, 2.6.34.x before 2.6.34.4, and 2.6.35.x before 2.6.35.2 does not properly separate the stack and the heap, which allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code by writing to the bottom page of a shared memory segment, as demonstrated by a memory-exhaustion attack against the X.Org X server. (CVE-2010-2240) The drm_ioctl function in drivers/gpu/drm/drm_drv.c in the Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27.53, 2.6.32.x before 2.6.32.21, 2.6.34.x before 2.6.34.6, and 2.6.35.x before 2.6.35.4 allows local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory by requesting a large memory-allocation amount. (CVE-2010-2803) Integer overflow in net/can/bcm.c in the Controller Area Network (CAN) implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27.53, 2.6.32.x before 2.6.32.21, 2.6.34.x before 2.6.34.6, and 2.6.35.x before 2.6.35.4 allows attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (system crash) via crafted CAN traffic. (CVE-2010-2959) Double free vulnerability in the snd_seq_oss_open function in sound/core/seq/oss/seq_oss_init.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36-rc4 might allow local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via an unsuccessful attempt to open the /dev/sequencer device. (CVE-2010-3080) A vulnerability in Linux kernel caused by insecure allocation of user space memory when translating system call inputs to 64-bit. A stack pointer underflow can occur when using the compat_alloc_user_space method with an arbitrary length input. (CVE-2010-3081) The IA32 system call emulation functionality in arch/x86/ia32/ia32entry.S in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36-rc4-git2 on the x86_64 platform does not zero extend the %eax register after the 32-bit entry path to ptrace is used, which allows local users to gain privileges by triggering an out-of-bounds access to the system call table using the %rax register.

    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2009-1548.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple 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 : * a system with SELinux enforced was more permissive in allowing local users in the unconfined_t domain to map low memory areas even if the mmap_min_addr restriction was enabled. This could aid in the local exploitation of NULL pointer dereference bugs. (CVE-2009-2695, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the eCryptfs implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause a local denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2009-2908, Important) * a flaw was found in the NFSv4 implementation. The kernel would do an unnecessary permission check after creating a file. This check would usually fail and leave the file with the permission bits set to random values. Note: This is a server-side only issue. (CVE-2009-3286, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in each of the following functions in the Linux kernel: pipe_read_open(), pipe_write_open(), and pipe_rdwr_open(). When the mutex lock is not held, the i_pipe pointer could be released by other processes before it is used to update the pipe's reader and writer counters. This could lead to a local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-3547, Important) * a flaw was found in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel. pci_unmap_single() presented a memory leak that could lead to IOMMU space exhaustion and a system crash. An attacker on the local network could abuse this flaw by using jumbo frames for large amounts of network traffic. (CVE-2009-3613, Important) * missing initialization flaws were found in the Linux kernel. Padding data in several core network structures was not initialized properly before being sent to user-space. These flaws could lead to information leaks. (CVE-2009-3228, Moderate) Bug fixes : * with network bonding in the 'balance-tlb' or 'balance-alb' mode, the primary setting for the primary slave device was lost when said device was brought down. Bringing the slave back up did not restore the primary setting. (BZ#517971) * some faulty serial device hardware caused systems running the kernel-xen kernel to take a very long time to boot. (BZ#524153) * a caching bug in nfs_readdir() may have caused NFS clients to see duplicate files or not see all files in a directory. (BZ#526960) * the RHSA-2009:1243 update removed the mpt_msi_enable option, preventing certain scripts from running. This update adds the option back. (BZ#526963) * an iptables rule with the recent module and a hit count value greater than the ip_pkt_list_tot parameter (the default is 20), did not have any effect over packets, as the hit count could not be reached. (BZ#527434) * a check has been added to the IPv4 code to make sure that rt is not NULL, to help prevent future bugs in functions that call ip_append_data() from being exploitable. (BZ#527436) * a kernel panic occurred in certain conditions after reconfiguring a tape drive's block size. (BZ#528133) * when using the Linux Virtual Server (LVS) in a master and backup configuration, and propagating active connections on the master to the backup, the connection timeout value on the backup was hard-coded to 180 seconds, meaning connection information on the backup was soon lost. This could prevent the successful failover of connections. The timeout value can now be set via 'ipvsadm --set'. (BZ#528645) * a bug in nfs4_do_open_expired() could have caused the reclaimer thread on an NFSv4 client to enter an infinite loop. (BZ#529162) * MSI interrupts may not have been delivered for r8169 based network cards that have MSI interrupts enabled. This bug only affected certain systems. (BZ#529366) 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.

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 : * NULL pointer dereference flaws in the r128 driver. Checks to test if the Concurrent Command Engine state was initialized were missing in private IOCTL functions. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a local denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2009-3620, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw in the NFSv4 implementation. Several NFSv4 file locking functions failed to check whether a file had been opened on the server before performing locking operations on it. A local user on a system with an NFSv4 share mounted could possibly use this flaw to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2009-3726, Important) * a flaw in tcf_fill_node(). A certain data structure in this function was not initialized properly before being copied to user-space. This could lead to an information leak. (CVE-2009-3612, Moderate) * unix_stream_connect() did not check if a UNIX domain socket was in the shutdown state. This could lead to a deadlock. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2009-3621, Moderate) Knowledgebase DOC-20536 has steps to mitigate NULL pointer dereference flaws. Bug fixes : * frequently changing a CPU between online and offline caused a kernel panic on some systems. (BZ#545583) * for the LSI Logic LSI53C1030 Ultra320 SCSI controller, read commands sent could receive incorrect data, preventing correct data transfer. (BZ#529308) * pciehp could not detect PCI Express hot plug slots on some systems. (BZ#530383) * soft lockups: inotify race and contention on dcache_lock. (BZ#533822, BZ#537019) * priority ordered lists are now used for threads waiting for a given mutex. (BZ#533858) * a deadlock in DLM could cause GFS2 file systems to lock up. (BZ#533859) * use-after-free bug in the audit subsystem crashed certain systems when running usermod. (BZ#533861) * on certain hardware configurations, a kernel panic when the Broadcom iSCSI offload driver (bnx2i.ko and cnic.ko) was loaded. (BZ#537014) * qla2xxx: Enabled MSI-X, and correctly handle the module parameter to control it. This improves performance for certain systems. (BZ#537020) * system crash when reading the cpuaffinity file on a system. (BZ#537346) * suspend-resume problems on systems with lots of logical CPUs, e.g. BX-EX. (BZ#539674) * off-by-one error in the legacy PCI bus check. (BZ#539675) * TSC was not made available on systems with multi-clustered APICs.

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1670 : Updated kernel packages that fix multiple 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 : * NULL pointer dereference flaws in the r128 driver. Checks to test if the Concurrent Command Engine state was initialized were missing in private IOCTL functions. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a local denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2009-3620, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw in the NFSv4 implementation. Several NFSv4 file locking functions failed to check whether a file had been opened on the server before performing locking operations on it. A local user on a system with an NFSv4 share mounted could possibly use this flaw to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2009-3726, Important) * a flaw in tcf_fill_node(). A certain data structure in this function was not initialized properly before being copied to user-space. This could lead to an information leak. (CVE-2009-3612, Moderate) * unix_stream_connect() did not check if a UNIX domain socket was in the shutdown state. This could lead to a deadlock. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2009-3621, Moderate) Knowledgebase DOC-20536 has steps to mitigate NULL pointer dereference flaws. Bug fixes : * frequently changing a CPU between online and offline caused a kernel panic on some systems. (BZ#545583) * for the LSI Logic LSI53C1030 Ultra320 SCSI controller, read commands sent could receive incorrect data, preventing correct data transfer. (BZ#529308) * pciehp could not detect PCI Express hot plug slots on some systems. (BZ#530383) * soft lockups: inotify race and contention on dcache_lock. (BZ#533822, BZ#537019) * priority ordered lists are now used for threads waiting for a given mutex. (BZ#533858) * a deadlock in DLM could cause GFS2 file systems to lock up. (BZ#533859) * use-after-free bug in the audit subsystem crashed certain systems when running usermod. (BZ#533861) * on certain hardware configurations, a kernel panic when the Broadcom iSCSI offload driver (bnx2i.ko and cnic.ko) was loaded. (BZ#537014) * qla2xxx: Enabled MSI-X, and correctly handle the module parameter to control it. This improves performance for certain systems. (BZ#537020) * system crash when reading the cpuaffinity file on a system. (BZ#537346) * suspend-resume problems on systems with lots of logical CPUs, e.g. BX-EX. (BZ#539674) * off-by-one error in the legacy PCI bus check. (BZ#539675) * TSC was not made available on systems with multi-clustered APICs.

    description Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux 2.6 kernel : The ATI Rage 128 (aka r128) driver in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31-git11 does not properly verify Concurrent Command Engine (CCE) state initialization, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via unspecified ioctl calls. (CVE-2009-3620) fs/namei.c in Linux kernel 2.6.18 through 2.6.34 does not always follow NFS automount symlinks, which allows attackers to have an unknown impact, related to LOOKUP_FOLLOW. (CVE-2010-1088) The wake_futex_pi function in kernel/futex.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.33-rc7 does not properly handle certain unlock operations for a Priority Inheritance (PI) futex, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) and possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors involving modification of the futex value from user space. (CVE-2010-0622) drivers/connector/connector.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.32.8 allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and system crash) by sending the kernel many NETLINK_CONNECTOR messages. (CVE-2010-0410) The futex_lock_pi function in kernel/futex.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.33-rc7 does not properly manage a certain reference count, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) via vectors involving an unmount of an ext3 filesystem. (CVE-2010-0623) Aditionally, the kernel was updated to the 2.6.31.13 stable release, it was added support for Cirrus Logic CS420x HDA codec, Wacom driver was updated to version 0.8.5-12 and there is a fix in the driver for backlight on Eee PC 1201HA.

    description Notice: Debian 5.0.4, the next point release of Debian 'lenny', will include a new default value for the mmap_min_addr tunable. This change will add an additional safeguard against a class of security vulnerabilities known as 'NULL pointer dereference' vulnerabilities, but it will need to be overridden when using certain applications. Additional information about this change, including instructions for making this change locally in advance of 5.0.4 (recommended), can be found at: https://wiki.debian.org/mmap_min_addr. Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service, sensitive memory leak or privilege escalation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2009-3228 Eric Dumazet reported an instance of uninitialized kernel memory in the network packet scheduler. Local users may be able to exploit this issue to read the contents of sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2009-3238 Linus Torvalds provided a change to the get_random_int() function to increase its randomness. - CVE-2009-3547 Earl Chew discovered a NULL pointer dereference issue in the pipe_rdwr_open function which can be used by local users to gain elevated privileges. - CVE-2009-3612 Jiri Pirko discovered a typo in the initialization of a structure in the netlink subsystem that may allow local users to gain access to sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2009-3620 Ben Hutchings discovered an issue in the DRM manager for ATI Rage 128 graphics adapters. Local users may be able to exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference). - CVE-2009-3621 Tomoki Sekiyama discovered a deadlock condition in the UNIX domain socket implementation. Local users can exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service (system hang). - CVE-2009-3638 David Wagner reported an overflow in the KVM subsystem on i386 systems. This issue is exploitable by local users with access to the /dev/kvm device file.

    description Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues and multiple bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3. 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 : * when fput() was called to close a socket, the __scm_destroy() function in the Linux kernel could make indirect recursive calls to itself. This could, potentially, lead to a denial of service issue. (CVE-2008-5029, Important) * the sendmsg() function in the Linux kernel did not block during UNIX socket garbage collection. This could, potentially, lead to a local denial of service. (CVE-2008-5300, Important) * the exit_notify() function in the Linux kernel did not properly reset the exit signal if a process executed a set user ID (setuid) application before exiting. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to elevate their privileges. (CVE-2009-1337, Important) * a flaw was found in the 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 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) * it was discovered that, when executing a new process, the clear_child_tid pointer in the Linux kernel is not cleared. If this pointer points to a writable portion of the memory of the new program, the kernel could corrupt four bytes of memory, possibly leading to a local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-2848, Important) * missing initialization flaws were found in getname() implementations in the IrDA sockets, AppleTalk DDP protocol, NET/ROM protocol, and ROSE protocol implementations in the Linux kernel. Certain data structures in these getname() implementations were not initialized properly before being copied to user-space. These flaws could lead to an information leak. (CVE-2009-3002, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in each of the following functions in the Linux kernel: pipe_read_open(), pipe_write_open(), and pipe_rdwr_open(). When the mutex lock is not held, the i_pipe pointer could be released by other processes before it is used to update the pipe's reader and writer counters. This could lead to a local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-3547, Important) Bug fixes : * this update adds the mmap_min_addr tunable and restriction checks to help prevent unprivileged users from creating new memory mappings below the minimum address. This can help prevent the exploitation of NULL pointer dereference bugs. Note that mmap_min_addr is set to zero (disabled) by default for backwards compatibility. (BZ#512642) * a bridge reference count problem in IPv6 has been fixed. (BZ#457010) * enforce null-termination of user-supplied arguments to setsockopt(). (BZ#505514) * the gcc flag '-fno-delete-null-pointer-checks' was added to the kernel build options. This prevents gcc from optimizing out NULL pointer checks after the first use of a pointer. NULL pointer bugs are often exploited by attackers. Keeping these checks is a safety measure. (BZ#511185) * a check has been added to the IPv4 code to make sure that rt is not NULL, to help prevent future bugs in functions that call ip_append_data() from being exploitable. (BZ#520300) 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 This update fixes a several security issues and various bugs in the SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP 2 kernel. The following security issues were fixed: CVE-2009-3939: A sysctl variable of the megaraid_sas driver was worldwriteable, allowing local users to cause a denial of service or potential code execution. - The collect_rx_frame function in drivers/isdn/hisax/hfc_usb.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.32-rc7 allows attackers to have an unspecified impact via a crafted HDLC packet that arrives over ISDN and triggers a buffer under-read. (CVE-2009-4005) - A negative offset in a ioctl in the GDTH RAID driver was fixed. (CVE-2009-3080) - The fuse_direct_io function in fs/fuse/file.c in the fuse subsystem in the Linux kernel might allow attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference and OOPS) via vectors possibly related to a memory-consumption attack. (CVE-2009-4021) - The dbg_lvl file for the megaraid_sas driver in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27 has world-writable permissions, which allows local users to change the (1) behavior and (2) logging level of the driver by modifying this file. (CVE-2009-3889) - Memory leak in the appletalk subsystem in the Linux kernel when the appletalk and ipddp modules are loaded but the ipddp'N' device is not found, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via IP-DDP datagrams. (CVE-2009-2903) - net/unix/af_unix.c in the Linux kernel allows local users to cause a denial of service (system hang) by creating an abstract-namespace AF_UNIX listening socket, performing a shutdown operation on this socket, and then performing a series of connect operations to this socket. (CVE-2009-3621) - The tcf_fill_node function in net/sched/cls_api.c in the netlink subsystem in the Linux kernel 2.6.x before 2.6.32-rc5, and 2.4.37.6 and earlier, does not initialize a certain tcm__pad2 structure member, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via unspecified vectors. NOTE: this issue existed because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2005-4881. (CVE-2009-3612 / CVE-2005-4881) - The ATI Rage 128 (aka r128) driver in the Linux kernel does not properly verify Concurrent Command Engine (CCE) state initialization, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via unspecified ioctl calls. (CVE-2009-3620) - The nfs4_proc_lock function in fs/nfs/nfs4proc.c in the NFSv4 client in the Linux kernel allows remote NFS servers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and panic) by sending a certain response containing incorrect file attributes, which trigger attempted use of an open file that lacks NFSv4 state. (CVE-2009-3726) - The swiotlb functionality in the r8169 driver in drivers/net/r8169.c in the Linux kernel allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (IOMMU space exhaustion and system crash) by using jumbo frames for a large amount of network traffic, as demonstrated by a flood ping. (CVE-2009-3613) The rio and sx serial multiport card drivers were disabled via a modprobe blacklist due to severe bugs. For a full list of changes, please read the RPM changelog.

    title RHEL 5 : kernel (RHSA-2009:1670)
  • NASL family Oracle Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2009-1671.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1671 : Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several 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. This update fixes the following security issues : * a flaw was found in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel. pci_unmap_single() presented a memory leak that could lead to IOMMU space exhaustion and a system crash. An attacker on the local network could trigger this flaw by using jumbo frames for large amounts of network traffic. (CVE-2009-3613, Important) * NULL pointer dereference flaws were found in the r128 driver in the Linux kernel. Checks to test if the Concurrent Command Engine state was initialized were missing in private IOCTL functions. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a local denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2009-3620, Important) * an information leak was found in the Linux kernel. On AMD64 systems, 32-bit processes could access and read certain 64-bit registers by temporarily switching themselves to 64-bit mode. (CVE-2009-2910, Moderate) * the unix_stream_connect() function in the Linux kernel did not check if a UNIX domain socket was in the shutdown state. This could lead to a deadlock. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2009-3621, Moderate) This update also fixes the following bugs : * an iptables rule with the recent module and a hit count value greater than the ip_pkt_list_tot parameter (the default is 20), did not have any effect over packets, as the hit count could not be reached. (BZ#529306) * in environments that use dual-controller storage devices with the cciss driver, Device-Mapper Multipath maps could not be detected and configured, due to the cciss driver not exporting the bus attribute via sysfs. This attribute is now exported. (BZ#529309) * the kernel crashed with a divide error when a certain joystick was attached. (BZ#532027) * a bug in the mptctl_do_mpt_command() function in the mpt driver may have resulted in crashes during boot on i386 systems with certain adapters using the mpt driver, and also running the hugemem kernel. (BZ#533798) * on certain hardware, the igb driver was unable to detect link statuses correctly. This may have caused problems for network bonding, such as failover not occurring. (BZ#534105) * the RHSA-2009:1024 update introduced a regression. After updating to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.8 and rebooting, network links often failed to be brought up for interfaces using the forcedeth driver. 'no link during initialization' messages may have been logged. (BZ#534112) * the RHSA-2009:1024 update introduced a second regression. On certain systems, PS/2 keyboards failed to work. (BZ#537344) * a bug in checksum offload calculations could have crashed the bnx2x firmware when the iptable_nat module was loaded, causing network traffic to stop. (BZ#537013) * a check has been added to the IPv4 code to make sure that the routing table data structure, rt, is not NULL, to help prevent future bugs in functions that call ip_append_data() from being exploitable. (BZ#537016) * possible kernel pointer dereferences on systems with several NFS mounts (a mixture of '-o lock' and '-o nolock'), which in rare cases may have caused a system crash, have been resolved. (BZ#537017) 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 Security fixes : - NULL pointer dereference flaws in the r128 driver. Checks to test if the Concurrent Command Engine state was initialized were missing in private IOCTL functions. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a local denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2009-3620, Important) - a NULL pointer dereference flaw in the NFSv4 implementation. Several NFSv4 file locking functions failed to check whether a file had been opened on the server before performing locking operations on it. A local user on a system with an NFSv4 share mounted could possibly use this flaw to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2009-3726, Important) - a flaw in tcf_fill_node(). A certain data structure in this function was not initialized properly before being copied to user-space. This could lead to an information leak. (CVE-2009-3612, Moderate) - unix_stream_connect() did not check if a UNIX domain socket was in the shutdown state. This could lead to a deadlock. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2009-3621, Moderate) Bug fixes : - frequently changing a CPU between online and offline caused a kernel panic on some systems. (BZ#545583) - for the LSI Logic LSI53C1030 Ultra320 SCSI controller, read commands sent could receive incorrect data, preventing correct data transfer. (BZ#529308) - pciehp could not detect PCI Express hot plug slots on some systems. (BZ#530383) - soft lockups: inotify race and contention on dcache_lock. (BZ#533822, BZ#537019) - priority ordered lists are now used for threads waiting for a given mutex. (BZ#533858) - a deadlock in DLM could cause GFS2 file systems to lock up. (BZ#533859) - use-after-free bug in the audit subsystem crashed certain systems when running usermod. (BZ#533861) - on certain hardware configurations, a kernel panic when the Broadcom iSCSI offload driver (bnx2i.ko and cnic.ko) was loaded. (BZ#537014) - qla2xxx: Enabled MSI-X, and correctly handle the module parameter to control it. This improves performance for certain systems. (BZ#537020) - system crash when reading the cpuaffinity file on a system. (BZ#537346) - suspend-resume problems on systems with lots of logical CPUs, e.g. BX-EX. (BZ#539674) - off-by-one error in the legacy PCI bus check. (BZ#539675) - TSC was not made available on systems with multi-clustered APICs. This could cause slow performance for time-sensitive applications. (BZ#539676) - ACPI: ARB_DISABLE now disabled on platforms that do not need it. (BZ#539677) - fix node to core and power-aware scheduling issues, and a kernel panic during boot on certain AMD Opteron processors. (BZ#539678, BZ#540469, BZ#539680, BZ#539682) - APIC timer interrupt issues on some AMD Opteron systems prevented achieving full power savings.

    title Scientific Linux Security Update : kernel on SL5.x i386/x86_64
  • NASL family Oracle Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2009-1550.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1550 : Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues and multiple bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3. 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 : * when fput() was called to close a socket, the __scm_destroy() function in the Linux kernel could make indirect recursive calls to itself. This could, potentially, lead to a denial of service issue. (CVE-2008-5029, Important) * the sendmsg() function in the Linux kernel did not block during UNIX socket garbage collection. This could, potentially, lead to a local denial of service. (CVE-2008-5300, Important) * the exit_notify() function in the Linux kernel did not properly reset the exit signal if a process executed a set user ID (setuid) application before exiting. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to elevate their privileges. (CVE-2009-1337, Important) * a flaw was found in the 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 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) * it was discovered that, when executing a new process, the clear_child_tid pointer in the Linux kernel is not cleared. If this pointer points to a writable portion of the memory of the new program, the kernel could corrupt four bytes of memory, possibly leading to a local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-2848, Important) * missing initialization flaws were found in getname() implementations in the IrDA sockets, AppleTalk DDP protocol, NET/ROM protocol, and ROSE protocol implementations in the Linux kernel. Certain data structures in these getname() implementations were not initialized properly before being copied to user-space. These flaws could lead to an information leak. (CVE-2009-3002, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in each of the following functions in the Linux kernel: pipe_read_open(), pipe_write_open(), and pipe_rdwr_open(). When the mutex lock is not held, the i_pipe pointer could be released by other processes before it is used to update the pipe's reader and writer counters. This could lead to a local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-3547, Important) Bug fixes : * this update adds the mmap_min_addr tunable and restriction checks to help prevent unprivileged users from creating new memory mappings below the minimum address. This can help prevent the exploitation of NULL pointer dereference bugs. Note that mmap_min_addr is set to zero (disabled) by default for backwards compatibility. (BZ#512642) * a bridge reference count problem in IPv6 has been fixed. (BZ#457010) * enforce null-termination of user-supplied arguments to setsockopt(). (BZ#505514) * the gcc flag '-fno-delete-null-pointer-checks' was added to the kernel build options. This prevents gcc from optimizing out NULL pointer checks after the first use of a pointer. NULL pointer bugs are often exploited by attackers. Keeping these checks is a safety measure. (BZ#511185) * a check has been added to the IPv4 code to make sure that rt is not NULL, to help prevent future bugs in functions that call ip_append_data() from being exploitable. (BZ#520300) 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.

    NASL id SUSE_11_1_KERNEL-091123.NASL
    description The openSUSE 11.1 Kernel was updated to 2.6.27.39 fixing various bugs and security issues. Following security issues have been fixed: CVE-2009-3547: A race condition during pipe open could be used by local attackers to cause a denial of service. (Due to mmap_min_addr protection enabled by default, code execution is not possible.) CVE-2009-2910: On x86_64 systems a information leak of high register contents (upper 32bit) was fixed. CVE-2009-2903: Memory leak in the appletalk subsystem in the Linux kernel when the appletalk and ipddp modules are loaded but the ipddp'N' device is not found, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via IP-DDP datagrams. CVE-2009-3621: net/unix/af_unix.c in the Linux kernel allows local users to cause a denial of service (system hang) by creating an abstract-namespace AF_UNIX listening socket, performing a shutdown operation on this socket, and then performing a series of connect operations to this socket. CVE-2009-3612 / CVE-2005-4881: The tcf_fill_node function in net/sched/cls_api.c in the netlink subsystem in the Linux kernel 2.6.x before 2.6.32-rc5, and 2.4.37.6 and earlier, does not initialize a certain tcm__pad2 structure member, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via unspecified vectors. NOTE: this issue existed because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2005-4881. CVE-2009-3620: The ATI Rage 128 (aka r128) driver in the Linux kernel does not properly verify Concurrent Command Engine (CCE) state initialization, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via unspecified ioctl calls. CVE-2009-3726: The nfs4_proc_lock function in fs/nfs/nfs4proc.c in the NFSv4 client in the Linux kernel allows remote NFS servers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and panic) by sending a certain response containing incorrect file attributes, which trigger attempted use of an open file that lacks NFSv4 state. CVE-2009-3286: Sv4 in the Linux kernel does not properly clean up an inode when an O_EXCL create fails, which causes files to be created with insecure settings such as setuid bits, and possibly allows local users to gain privileges, related to the execution of the do_open_permission function even when a create fails.

    description The ATI Rage 128 (aka r128) driver in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31-git11 does not properly verify Concurrent Command Engine (CCE) state initialization, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via unspecified ioctl calls.
