CWE CWE-119
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.
  • Overflow Buffers
    Buffer Overflow attacks target improper or missing bounds checking on buffer operations, typically triggered by input injected by an attacker. As a consequence, an attacker is able to write past the boundaries of allocated buffer regions in memory, causing a program crash or potentially redirection of execution as per the attackers' choice.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • Overflow Binary Resource File
    An attack of this type exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in the handling of binary resources. Binary resources may include music files like MP3, image files like JPEG files, and any other binary file. These attacks may pass unnoticed to the client machine through normal usage of files, such as a browser loading a seemingly innocent JPEG file. This can allow the attacker access to the execution stack and execute arbitrary code in the target process. This attack pattern is a variant of standard buffer overflow attacks using an unexpected vector (binary files) to wrap its attack and open up a new attack vector. The attacker is required to either directly serve the binary content to the victim, or place it in a locale like a MP3 sharing application, for the victim to download. The attacker then is notified upon the download or otherwise locates the vulnerability opened up by the buffer overflow.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    title SUSE SLES10 Security Update : kernel (SUSE-SU-2013:1832-1)
  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DSA-2003.NASL
    description NOTE: This kernel update marks the final planned kernel security update for the 2.6.18 kernel in the Debian release 'etch'. Although security support for 'etch' officially ended on Feburary 15th, 2010, this update was already in preparation before that date. A final update that includes fixes for these issues in the 2.6.24 kernel is also in preparation and will be released shortly. Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service or privilege escalation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2009-3080 Dave Jones reported an issue in the gdth SCSI driver. A missing check for negative offsets in an ioctl call could be exploited by local users to create a denial of service or potentially gain elevated privileges. - CVE-2009-3726 Trond Myklebust reported an issue where a malicious NFS server could cause a denial of service condition on its clients by returning incorrect attributes during an open call. - CVE-2009-4005 Roel Kluin discovered an issue in the hfc_usb driver, an ISDN driver for Colognechip HFC-S USB chip. A potential read overflow exists which may allow remote users to cause a denial of service condition (oops). - CVE-2009-4020 Amerigo Wang discovered an issue in the HFS filesystem that would allow a denial of service by a local user who has sufficient privileges to mount a specially crafted filesystem. - CVE-2009-4021 Anana V. Avati discovered an issue in the fuse subsystem. If the system is sufficiently low on memory, a local user can cause the kernel to dereference an invalid pointer resulting in a denial of service (oops) and potentially an escalation of privileges. - CVE-2009-4536 Fabian Yamaguchi reported an issue in the e1000 driver for Intel gigabit network adapters which allow remote users to bypass packet filters using specially crafted ethernet frames. - CVE-2010-0007 Florian Westphal reported a lack of capability checking in the ebtables netfilter subsystem. If the ebtables module is loaded, local users can add and modify ebtables rules. - CVE-2010-0410 Sebastian Krahmer discovered an issue in the netlink connector subsystem that permits local users to allocate large amounts of system memory resulting in a denial of service (out of memory). - CVE-2010-0415 Ramon de Carvalho Valle discovered an issue in the sys_move_pages interface, limited to amd64, ia64 and powerpc64 flavors in Debian. Local users can exploit this issue to cause a denial of service (system crash) or gain access to sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2010-0622 Jerome Marchand reported an issue in the futex subsystem that allows a local user to force an invalid futex state which results in a denial of service (oops). This update also fixes a regression introduced by a previous security update that caused problems booting on certain s390 systems.

  • NASL family CentOS Local Security Checks
    NASL id CENTOS_RHSA-2010-0046.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 : * an array index error was found in the gdth driver. A local user could send a specially crafted IOCTL request that would cause a denial of service or, possibly, privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-3080, Important) * a flaw was found in the FUSE implementation. When a system is low on memory, fuse_put_request() could dereference an invalid pointer, possibly leading to a local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-4021, Important) * Tavis Ormandy discovered a deficiency in the fasync_helper() implementation. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to leverage a use-after-free of locked, asynchronous file descriptors to cause a denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-4141, Important) * the Parallels Virtuozzo Containers team reported the RHSA-2009:1243 update introduced two flaws in the routing implementation. If an attacker was able to cause a large enough number of collisions in the routing hash table (via specially crafted packets) for the emergency route flush to trigger, a deadlock could occur. Secondly, if the kernel routing cache was disabled, an uninitialized pointer would be left behind after a route lookup, leading to a kernel panic. (CVE-2009-4272, Important) * the RHSA-2009:0225 update introduced a rewrite attack flaw in the do_coredump() function. A local attacker able to guess the file name a process is going to dump its core to, prior to the process crashing, could use this flaw to append data to the dumped core file. This issue only affects systems that have '/proc/sys/fs/suid_dumpable' set to 2 (the default value is 0). (CVE-2006-6304, Moderate) The fix for CVE-2006-6304 changes the expected behavior: With suid_dumpable set to 2, the core file will not be recorded if the file already exists. For example, core files will not be overwritten on subsequent crashes of processes whose core files map to the same name. * 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 RHBA-2008:0314 update introduced N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) support in the qla2xxx driver, resulting in two new sysfs pseudo files, '/sys/class/scsi_host/[a qla2xxx host]/vport_create' and 'vport_delete'. These two files were world-writable by default, allowing a local user to change SCSI host attributes. This flaw only affects systems using the qla2xxx driver and NPIV capable hardware. (CVE-2009-3556, Moderate) * permission issues were found in the megaraid_sas driver. The 'dbg_lvl' and 'poll_mode_io' files on the sysfs file system ('/sys/') had world-writable permissions. This could allow local, unprivileged users to change the behavior of the driver. (CVE-2009-3889, CVE-2009-3939, Moderate) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the firewire-ohci driver used for OHCI compliant IEEE 1394 controllers. A local, unprivileged user with access to /dev/fw* files could issue certain IOCTL calls, causing a denial of service or privilege escalation. The FireWire modules are blacklisted by default, and if enabled, only root has access to the files noted above by default. (CVE-2009-4138, Moderate) * a buffer overflow flaw was found in the hfs_bnode_read() function in the HFS file system implementation. This could lead to a denial of service if a user browsed a specially crafted HFS file system, for example, by running 'ls'. (CVE-2009-4020, Low) Bug fix documentation for this update will be available shortly from www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/errata/RHSA-2010-0046/Kernel_Security_Update / index.html Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues.

    NASL id SUSE9_12636.NASL
    description This update fixes various security issues and some bugs in the SUSE Linux Enterprise 9 kernel. The following security issues were fixed : - A crafted NFS write request might have caused a buffer overwrite, potentially causing a kernel crash. (CVE-2010-2521) - The x86_64 copy_to_user implementation might have leaked kernel memory depending on specific user buffer setups. (CVE-2008-0598) - drivers/net/r8169.c in the r8169 driver in the Linux kernel did not properly check the size of an Ethernet frame that exceeds the MTU, which allows remote attackers to (1) cause a denial of service (temporary network outage) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing A characters and certain packets containing E characters; or (2) cause a denial of service (system crash) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing '\0' characters, related to the value of the status register and erroneous behavior associated with the RxMaxSize register. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2009-1389. (CVE-2009-4537) - Use-after-free vulnerability in net/ipv4/tcp_input.c in the Linux kernel 2.6 when IPV6_RECVPKTINFO is set on a listening socket, allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (kernel panic) via a SYN packet while the socket is in a listening (TCP_LISTEN) state, which is not properly handled causes the skb structure to be freed. (CVE-2010-1188) - The (1) real_lookup and (2) __lookup_hash functions in fs/namei.c in the vfs implementation in the Linux kernel did not prevent creation of a child dentry for a deleted (aka S_DEAD) directory, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service ('overflow' of the UBIFS orphan area) via a series of attempted file creations within deleted directories. (CVE-2008-3275) - The nfs_lock function in fs/nfs/file.c in the Linux kernel did not properly remove POSIX locks on files that are setgid without group-execute permission, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (BUG and system crash) by locking a file on an NFS filesystem and then changing this files permissions, a related issue to CVE-2010-0727. (CVE-2007-6733) - The do_coredump function in fs/exec.c in Linux kernel did not change the UID of a core dump file if it exists before a root process creates a core dump in the same location, which might have allowed local users to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2007-6206) - fs/namei.c in the Linux kernel did not always follow NFS automount 'symlinks,' which allowed attackers to have an unknown impact, related to LOOKUP_FOLLOW. (CVE-2010-1088) - Stack-based buffer overflow in the hfs subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to have an unspecified impact via a crafted Hierarchical File System (HFS) filesystem, related to the hfs_readdir function in fs/hfs/dir.c. (CVE-2009-4020) - The processcompl_compat function in drivers/usb/core/devio.c in Linux kernel did not clear the transfer buffer before returning to userspace when a USB command fails, which might have made it easier for physically proximate attackers to obtain sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2010-1083)

    description CVE-2009-3889 CVE-2009-3939 kernel: megaraid_sas permissions in sysfs CVE-2009-3080 kernel: gdth: Prevent negative offsets in ioctl CVE-2009-4005 kernel: isdn: hfc_usb: fix read buffer overflow CVE-2009-4020 kernel: hfs buffer overflow This update fixes the following security issues : - an array index error was found in the gdth driver in the Linux kernel. A local user could send a specially crafted IOCTL request that would cause a denial of service or, possibly, privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-3080, Important) - a flaw was found in the collect_rx_frame() function in the HiSax ISDN driver (hfc_usb) in the Linux kernel. An attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted HDLC packet that could trigger a buffer out of bounds, possibly resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2009-4005, Important) - permission issues were found in the megaraid_sas driver (for SAS based RAID controllers) in the Linux kernel. The 'dbg_lvl' and 'poll_mode_io' files on the sysfs file system ('/sys/') had world-writable permissions. This could allow local, unprivileged users to change the behavior of the driver. (CVE-2009-3889, CVE-2009-3939, Moderate) - a buffer overflow flaw was found in the hfs_bnode_read() function in the HFS file system implementation in the Linux kernel. This could lead to a denial of service if a user browsed a specially crafted HFS file system, for example, by running 'ls'. (CVE-2009-4020, Low) This update also fixes the following bugs : - if a process was using ptrace() to trace a multi-threaded process, and that multi-threaded process dumped its core, the process performing the trace could hang in wait4(). This issue could be triggered by running 'strace -f' on a multi-threaded process that was dumping its core, resulting in the strace command hanging. (BZ#555869) - a bug in the ptrace() implementation could have, in some cases, caused ptrace_detach() to create a zombie process if the process being traced was terminated with a SIGKILL signal. (BZ#555869) - the kernel-2.6.9-89.0.19.EL update resolved an issue (CVE-2009-4537) in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver. This update implements a better solution for that issue. Note: This is not a security regression. The original fix was complete. This update is adding the official upstream fix. (BZ#556406) The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    description a. Service Console update for COS kernel Updated COS package 'kernel' addresses the security issues that are fixed through versions 2.6.18-164.11.1. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-2695, CVE-2009-2908, CVE-2009-3228, CVE-2009-3286, CVE-2009-3547, CVE-2009-3613 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-164.6.1 The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-3612, CVE-2009-3620, CVE-2009-3621, CVE-2009-3726 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-164.9.1. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2007-4567, CVE-2009-4536, CVE-2009-4537, CVE-2009-4538 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-164.10.1 The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2006-6304, CVE-2009-2910, CVE-2009-3080, CVE-2009-3556, CVE-2009-3889, CVE-2009-3939, CVE-2009-4020, CVE-2009-4021, CVE-2009-4138, CVE-2009-4141, and CVE-2009-4272 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-164.11.1. b. 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.

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2010:0046 : 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 : * an array index error was found in the gdth driver. A local user could send a specially crafted IOCTL request that would cause a denial of service or, possibly, privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-3080, Important) * a flaw was found in the FUSE implementation. When a system is low on memory, fuse_put_request() could dereference an invalid pointer, possibly leading to a local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-4021, Important) * Tavis Ormandy discovered a deficiency in the fasync_helper() implementation. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to leverage a use-after-free of locked, asynchronous file descriptors to cause a denial of service or privilege escalation.

    NASL id UBUNTU_USN-894-1.NASL
    description Amerigo Wang and Eric Sesterhenn discovered that the HFS and ext4 filesystems did not correctly check certain disk structures. If a user were tricked into mounting a specially crafted filesystem, a remote attacker could crash the system or gain root privileges. (CVE-2009-4020, CVE-2009-4308) It was discovered that FUSE did not correctly check certain requests. A local attacker with access to FUSE mounts could exploit this to crash the system or possibly gain root privileges. Ubuntu 9.10 was not affected. (CVE-2009-4021) It was discovered that KVM did not correctly decode certain guest instructions. A local attacker in a guest could exploit this to trigger high scheduling latency in the host, leading to a denial of service. Ubuntu 6.06 was not affected. (CVE-2009-4031) It was discovered that the OHCI fireware driver did not correctly handle certain ioctls. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system, or possibly gain root privileges. Ubuntu 6.06 was not affected. (CVE-2009-4138) Tavis Ormandy discovered that the kernel did not correctly handle O_ASYNC on locked files. A local attacker could exploit this to gain root privileges. Only Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10 were affected. (CVE-2009-4141) Neil Horman and Eugene Teo discovered that the e1000 and e1000e network drivers did not correctly check the size of Ethernet frames. An attacker on the local network could send specially crafted traffic to bypass packet filters, crash the system, or possibly gain root privileges. (CVE-2009-4536, CVE-2009-4538) It was discovered that 'print-fatal-signals' reporting could show arbitrary kernel memory contents. A local attacker could exploit this, leading to a loss of privacy. By default this is disabled in Ubuntu and did not affect Ubuntu 6.06. (CVE-2010-0003) Olli Jarva and Tuomo Untinen discovered that IPv6 did not correctly handle jumbo frames. A remote attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. Only Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10 were affected. (CVE-2010-0006) Florian Westphal discovered that bridging netfilter rules could be modified by unprivileged users. A local attacker could disrupt network traffic, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-0007) Al Viro discovered that certain mremap operations could leak kernel memory. A local attacker could exploit this to consume all available memory, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-0291). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2010-0046.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 : * an array index error was found in the gdth driver. A local user could send a specially crafted IOCTL request that would cause a denial of service or, possibly, privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-3080, Important) * a flaw was found in the FUSE implementation. When a system is low on memory, fuse_put_request() could dereference an invalid pointer, possibly leading to a local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-4021, Important) * Tavis Ormandy discovered a deficiency in the fasync_helper() implementation. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to leverage a use-after-free of locked, asynchronous file descriptors to cause a denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-4141, Important) * the Parallels Virtuozzo Containers team reported the RHSA-2009:1243 update introduced two flaws in the routing implementation. If an attacker was able to cause a large enough number of collisions in the routing hash table (via specially crafted packets) for the emergency route flush to trigger, a deadlock could occur. Secondly, if the kernel routing cache was disabled, an uninitialized pointer would be left behind after a route lookup, leading to a kernel panic. (CVE-2009-4272, Important) * the RHSA-2009:0225 update introduced a rewrite attack flaw in the do_coredump() function. A local attacker able to guess the file name a process is going to dump its core to, prior to the process crashing, could use this flaw to append data to the dumped core file. This issue only affects systems that have '/proc/sys/fs/suid_dumpable' set to 2 (the default value is 0). (CVE-2006-6304, Moderate) The fix for CVE-2006-6304 changes the expected behavior: With suid_dumpable set to 2, the core file will not be recorded if the file already exists. For example, core files will not be overwritten on subsequent crashes of processes whose core files map to the same name. * 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 RHBA-2008:0314 update introduced N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) support in the qla2xxx driver, resulting in two new sysfs pseudo files, '/sys/class/scsi_host/[a qla2xxx host]/vport_create' and 'vport_delete'. These two files were world-writable by default, allowing a local user to change SCSI host attributes. This flaw only affects systems using the qla2xxx driver and NPIV capable hardware. (CVE-2009-3556, Moderate) * permission issues were found in the megaraid_sas driver. The 'dbg_lvl' and 'poll_mode_io' files on the sysfs file system ('/sys/') had world-writable permissions. This could allow local, unprivileged users to change the behavior of the driver. (CVE-2009-3889, CVE-2009-3939, Moderate) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the firewire-ohci driver used for OHCI compliant IEEE 1394 controllers. A local, unprivileged user with access to /dev/fw* files could issue certain IOCTL calls, causing a denial of service or privilege escalation. The FireWire modules are blacklisted by default, and if enabled, only root has access to the files noted above by default. (CVE-2009-4138, Moderate) * a buffer overflow flaw was found in the hfs_bnode_read() function in the HFS file system implementation. This could lead to a denial of service if a user browsed a specially crafted HFS file system, for example, by running 'ls'. (CVE-2009-4020, Low) Bug fix documentation for this update will be available shortly from www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/errata/RHSA-2010-0046/Kernel_Security_Update / index.html Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

This could lead to a denial of service if a user browsed a specially crafted HFS file system, for example, by running 'ls'. (CVE-2009-4020, Low) This update also fixes the following bugs : * if a process was using ptrace() to trace a multi-threaded process, and that multi-threaded process dumped its core, the process performing the trace could hang in wait4(). This issue could be triggered by running 'strace -f' on a multi-threaded process that was dumping its core, resulting in the strace command hanging. (BZ#555869) * a bug in the ptrace() implementation could have, in some cases, caused ptrace_detach() to create a zombie process if the process being traced was terminated with a SIGKILL signal. (BZ#555869) * the RHSA-2010:0020 update resolved an issue (CVE-2009-4537) in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver. This update implements a better solution for that issue. Note: This is not a security regression. The original fix was complete. This update is adding the official upstream fix.

  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DSA-2005.NASL
    description NOTE: This kernel update marks the final planned kernel security update for the 2.6.24 kernel in the Debian release 'etch'. Although security support for 'etch' officially ended on Feburary 15th, 2010, this update was already in preparation before that date. 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-2009-2691 Steve Beattie and Kees Cook reported an information leak in the maps and smaps files available under /proc. Local users may be able to read this data for setuid processes while the ELF binary is being loaded. - CVE-2009-2695 Eric Paris provided several fixes to increase the protection provided by the mmap_min_addr tunable against NULL pointer dereference vulnerabilities. - CVE-2009-3080 Dave Jones reported an issue in the gdth SCSI driver. A missing check for negative offsets in an ioctl call could be exploited by local users to create a denial of service or potentially gain elevated privileges. - CVE-2009-3726 Trond Myklebust reported an issue where a malicious NFS server could cause a denial of service condition on its clients by returning incorrect attributes during an open call. - CVE-2009-3889 Joe Malicki discovered an issue in the megaraid_sas driver. Insufficient permissions on the sysfs dbg_lvl interface allow local users to modify the debug logging behavior. - CVE-2009-4005 Roel Kluin discovered an issue in the hfc_usb driver, an ISDN driver for Colognechip HFC-S USB chip. A potential read overflow exists which may allow remote users to cause a denial of service condition (oops). - CVE-2009-4020 Amerigo Wang discovered an issue in the HFS filesystem that would allow a denial of service by a local user who has sufficient privileges to mount a specially crafted filesystem. - CVE-2009-4021 Anana V. Avati discovered an issue in the fuse subsystem. If the system is sufficiently low on memory, a local user can cause the kernel to dereference an invalid pointer resulting in a denial of service (oops) and potentially an escalation of privileges. - CVE-2009-4138 Jay Fenlason discovered an issue in the firewire stack that allows local users to cause a denial of service (oops or crash) by making a specially crafted ioctl call. - CVE-2009-4308 Ted Ts'o discovered an issue in the ext4 filesystem that allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference). For this to be exploitable, the local user must have sufficient privileges to mount a filesystem. - CVE-2009-4536 CVE-2009-4538 Fabian Yamaguchi reported issues in the e1000 and e1000e drivers for Intel gigabit network adapters which allow remote users to bypass packet filters using specially crafted Ethernet frames. - CVE-2010-0003 Andi Kleen reported a defect which allows local users to gain read access to memory reachable by the kernel when the print-fatal-signals option is enabled. This option is disabled by default. - CVE-2010-0007 Florian Westphal reported a lack of capability checking in the ebtables netfilter subsystem. If the ebtables module is loaded, local users can add and modify ebtables rules. - CVE-2010-0291 Al Viro reported several issues with the mmap/mremap system calls that allow local users to cause a denial of service (system panic) or obtain elevated privileges. - CVE-2010-0410 Sebastian Krahmer discovered an issue in the netlink connector subsystem that permits local users to allocate large amounts of system memory resulting in a denial of service (out of memory). - CVE-2010-0415 Ramon de Carvalho Valle discovered an issue in the sys_move_pages interface, limited to amd64, ia64 and powerpc64 flavors in Debian. Local users can exploit this issue to cause a denial of service (system crash) or gain access to sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2010-0622 Jerome Marchand reported an issue in the futex subsystem that allows a local user to force an invalid futex state which results in a denial of service (oops).

The following security issues were fixed : - A underflow in the e1000 jumbo ethernet frame handling could be use by link-local remote attackers to crash the machine or potentially execute code in kernel context. This requires the attacker to be able to send Jumbo Frames to the target machine. (CVE-2009-4536) - A underflow in the e1000e jumbo ethernet frame handling could be use by link-local remote attackers to crash the machine or potentially execute code in kernel context. This requires the attacker to be able to send Jumbo Frames to the target machine. (CVE-2009-4538) - 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-2009-4138) - The ext4_fill_flex_info function in fs/ext4/super.c in the Linux kernel allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (divide-by-zero error and panic) via a malformed ext4 filesystem containing a super block with a large FLEX_BG group size (aka s_log_groups_per_flex value). (CVE-2009-4307) - 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 poll_mode_io file for the megaraid_sas driver in the Linux kernel has world-writable permissions, which allows local users to change the I/O mode of the driver by modifying this file. (CVE-2009-3939) - The collect_rx_frame function in drivers/isdn/hisax/hfc_usb.c in the Linux kernel 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) - Stack-based buffer overflow in the hfs subsystem in the Linux kernel allows remote attackers to have an unspecified impact via a crafted Hierarchical File System (HFS) filesystem, related to the hfs_readdir function in fs/hfs/dir.c. (CVE-2009-4020) For a complete list of changes, please look at the RPM changelog. Solution Please install the updates provided at the location noted below.

    title SuSE 11 Security Update : Linux kernel (SAT Patch Number 1753)
  • NASL family CentOS Local Security Checks
    NASL id CENTOS_RHSA-2010-0076.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and three 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 : * an array index error was found in the gdth driver in the Linux kernel. A local user could send a specially crafted IOCTL request that would cause a denial of service or, possibly, privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-3080, Important) * a flaw was found in the collect_rx_frame() function in the HiSax ISDN driver (hfc_usb) in the Linux kernel. An attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted HDLC packet that could trigger a buffer out of bounds, possibly resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2009-4005, Important) * permission issues were found in the megaraid_sas driver (for SAS based RAID controllers) in the Linux kernel. The 'dbg_lvl' and 'poll_mode_io' files on the sysfs file system ('/sys/') had world-writable permissions. This could allow local, unprivileged users to change the behavior of the driver. (CVE-2009-3889, CVE-2009-3939, Moderate) * a buffer overflow flaw was found in the hfs_bnode_read() function in the HFS file system implementation in the Linux kernel. This could lead to a denial of service if a user browsed a specially crafted HFS file system, for example, by running 'ls'. (CVE-2009-4020, Low) This update also fixes the following bugs : * if a process was using ptrace() to trace a multi-threaded process, and that multi-threaded process dumped its core, the process performing the trace could hang in wait4(). This issue could be triggered by running 'strace -f' on a multi-threaded process that was dumping its core, resulting in the strace command hanging. (BZ#555869) * a bug in the ptrace() implementation could have, in some cases, caused ptrace_detach() to create a zombie process if the process being traced was terminated with a SIGKILL signal. (BZ#555869) * the RHSA-2010:0020 update resolved an issue (CVE-2009-4537) in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver. This update implements a better solution for that issue. Note: This is not a security regression. The original fix was complete. This update is adding the official upstream fix. (BZ#556406) 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-2010:0076)
  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_KERNEL-7011.NASL
    description This update fixes a several security issues and various bugs in the SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP 2 kernel. The bugs fixed include a serious data corruption regression in NFS. The following security issues were fixed : - drivers/net/r8169.c in the r8169 driver in the Linux kernel does not properly check the size of an Ethernet frame that exceeds the MTU, which allows remote attackers to (1) cause a denial of service (temporary network outage) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing A characters and certain packets containing E characters; or (2) cause a denial of service (system crash) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing '0' characters, related to the value of the status register and erroneous behavior associated with the RxMaxSize register. (CVE-2009-4537) - The ULE decapsulation functionality in drivers/media/dvb/dvb-core/dvb_net.c in dvb-core in the Linux kernel arlier allows attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a crafted MPEG2-TS frame, related to an invalid Payload Pointer ULE. (CVE-2010-1086) - fs/namei.c in Linux kernel does not always follow NFS automount 'symlinks,' which allows attackers to have an unknown impact, related to LOOKUP_FOLLOW. (CVE-2010-1088) - Stack-based buffer overflow in the hfs subsystem in the Linux kernel allows remote attackers to have an unspecified impact via a crafted Hierarchical File System (HFS) filesystem, related to the hfs_readdir function in fs/hfs/dir.c. (CVE-2009-4020) - The processcompl_compat function in drivers/usb/core/devio.c in the Linux kernel does not clear the transfer buffer before returning to userspace when a USB command fails, which might make it easier for physically proximate attackers to obtain sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2010-1083) - drivers/connector/connector.c in the Linux kernel 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)

statement This issue did not affect the version of the Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise MRG as the affected driver is not enabled in this kernel. It was addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5 via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0076.html and https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0046.html respectively. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 is now in Production 3 of the maintenance life-cycle, http://www.redhat.com/security/updates/errata, and this issue is rated as having low impact, therefore the fix for this issue is not currently planned to be included in the future updates.
