Impact:
Exploitability:
CWE CWE-264
CAPEC
  • Accessing, Modifying or Executing Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's configuration that allows an attacker to either directly access an executable file, for example through shell access; or in a possible worst case allows an attacker to upload a file and then execute it. Web servers, ftp servers, and message oriented middleware systems which have many integration points are particularly vulnerable, because both the programmers and the administrators must be in synch regarding the interfaces and the correct privileges for each interface.
  • Leverage Executable Code in Non-Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's trust in configuration and resource files, when the executable loads the resource (such as an image file or configuration file) the attacker has modified the file to either execute malicious code directly or manipulate the target process (e.g. application server) to execute based on the malicious configuration parameters. Since systems are increasingly interrelated mashing up resources from local and remote sources the possibility of this attack occurring is high. The attack can be directed at a client system, such as causing buffer overrun through loading seemingly benign image files, as in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-028 where specially crafted JPEG files could cause a buffer overrun once loaded into the browser. Another example targets clients reading pdf files. In this case the attacker simply appends javascript to the end of a legitimate url for a pdf (http://www.gnucitizen.org/blog/danger-danger-danger/) http://path/to/pdf/file.pdf#whatever_name_you_want=javascript:your_code_here The client assumes that they are reading a pdf, but the attacker has modified the resource and loaded executable javascript into the client's browser process. The attack can also target server processes. The attacker edits the resource or configuration file, for example a web.xml file used to configure security permissions for a J2EE app server, adding role name "public" grants all users with the public role the ability to use the administration functionality. The server trusts its configuration file to be correct, but when they are manipulated, the attacker gains full control.
  • Blue Boxing
    This type of attack against older telephone switches and trunks has been around for decades. A tone is sent by an adversary to impersonate a supervisor signal which has the effect of rerouting or usurping command of the line. While the US infrastructure proper may not contain widespread vulnerabilities to this type of attack, many companies are connected globally through call centers and business process outsourcing. These international systems may be operated in countries which have not upgraded Telco infrastructure and so are vulnerable to Blue boxing. Blue boxing is a result of failure on the part of the system to enforce strong authorization for administrative functions. While the infrastructure is different than standard current applications like web applications, there are historical lessons to be learned to upgrade the access control for administrative functions.
  • Restful Privilege Elevation
    Rest uses standard HTTP (Get, Put, Delete) style permissions methods, but these are not necessarily correlated generally with back end programs. Strict interpretation of HTTP get methods means that these HTTP Get services should not be used to delete information on the server, but there is no access control mechanism to back up this logic. This means that unless the services are properly ACL'd and the application's service implementation are following these guidelines then an HTTP request can easily execute a delete or update on the server side. The attacker identifies a HTTP Get URL such as http://victimsite/updateOrder, which calls out to a program to update orders on a database or other resource. The URL is not idempotent so the request can be submitted multiple times by the attacker, additionally, the attacker may be able to exploit the URL published as a Get method that actually performs updates (instead of merely retrieving data). This may result in malicious or inadvertent altering of data on the server.
  • Target Programs with Elevated Privileges
    This attack targets programs running with elevated privileges. The attacker would try to leverage a bug in the running program and get arbitrary code to execute with elevated privileges. For instance an attacker would look for programs that write to the system directories or registry keys (such as HKLM, which stores a number of critical Windows environment variables). These programs are typically running with elevated privileges and have usually not been designed with security in mind. Such programs are excellent exploit targets because they yield lots of power when they break. The malicious user try to execute its code at the same level as a privileged system call.
  • Manipulating Input to File System Calls
    An attacker manipulates inputs to the target software which the target software passes to file system calls in the OS. The goal is to gain access to, and perhaps modify, areas of the file system that the target software did not intend to be accessible.

    NASL id CENTOS_RHSA-2010-0146.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. This update fixes the following security issues : * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the sctp_rcv_ootb() function in the Linux kernel Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) implementation. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted SCTP packet to a target system, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2010-0008, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the Linux kernel. During a core dump, the kernel did not check if the Virtual Dynamically-linked Shared Object page was accessible. On Intel 64 and AMD64 systems, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a kernel panic by running a crafted 32-bit application. (CVE-2009-4271, Important) * an information leak was found in the print_fatal_signal() implementation in the Linux kernel. When '/proc/sys/kernel/print-fatal-signals' is set to 1 (the default value is 0), memory that is reachable by the kernel could be leaked to user-space. This issue could also result in a system crash. Note that this flaw only affected the i386 architecture. (CVE-2010-0003, Moderate) * on AMD64 systems, it was discovered that the kernel did not ensure the ELF interpreter was available before making a call to the SET_PERSONALITY macro. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service by running a 32-bit application that attempts to execute a 64-bit application. (CVE-2010-0307, Moderate) * missing capability checks were found in the ebtables implementation, used for creating an Ethernet bridge firewall. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to bypass intended capability restrictions and modify ebtables rules. (CVE-2010-0007, Low) This update also fixes the following bugs : * under some circumstances, a locking bug could have caused an online ext3 file system resize to deadlock, which may have, in turn, caused the file system or the entire system to become unresponsive. In either case, a reboot was required after the deadlock. With this update, using resize2fs to perform an online resize of an ext3 file system works as expected. (BZ#553135) * some ATA and SCSI devices were not honoring the barrier=1 mount option, which could result in data loss after a crash or power loss. This update applies a patch to the Linux SCSI driver to ensure ordered write caching. This solution does not provide cache flushes; however, it does provide data integrity on devices that have no write caching (or where write caching is disabled) and no command queuing.

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2010:0146 : Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. This update fixes the following security issues : * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the sctp_rcv_ootb() function in the Linux kernel Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) implementation. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted SCTP packet to a target system, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2010-0008, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the Linux kernel. During a core dump, the kernel did not check if the Virtual Dynamically-linked Shared Object page was accessible. On Intel 64 and AMD64 systems, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a kernel panic by running a crafted 32-bit application. (CVE-2009-4271, Important) * an information leak was found in the print_fatal_signal() implementation in the Linux kernel. When '/proc/sys/kernel/print-fatal-signals' is set to 1 (the default value is 0), memory that is reachable by the kernel could be leaked to user-space. This issue could also result in a system crash. Note that this flaw only affected the i386 architecture. (CVE-2010-0003, Moderate) * on AMD64 systems, it was discovered that the kernel did not ensure the ELF interpreter was available before making a call to the SET_PERSONALITY macro. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service by running a 32-bit application that attempts to execute a 64-bit application. (CVE-2010-0307, Moderate) * missing capability checks were found in the ebtables implementation, used for creating an Ethernet bridge firewall. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to bypass intended capability restrictions and modify ebtables rules. (CVE-2010-0007, Low) This update also fixes the following bugs : * under some circumstances, a locking bug could have caused an online ext3 file system resize to deadlock, which may have, in turn, caused the file system or the entire system to become unresponsive. In either case, a reboot was required after the deadlock. With this update, using resize2fs to perform an online resize of an ext3 file system works as expected. (BZ#553135) * some ATA and SCSI devices were not honoring the barrier=1 mount option, which could result in data loss after a crash or power loss. This update applies a patch to the Linux SCSI driver to ensure ordered write caching. This solution does not provide cache flushes; however, it does provide data integrity on devices that have no write caching (or where write caching is disabled) and no command queuing. For systems that have command queuing or write cache enabled there is no guarantee of data integrity after a crash. (BZ#560563) * it was found that lpfc_find_target() could loop continuously when scanning a list of nodes due to a missing spinlock. This missing spinlock allowed the list to be changed after the list_empty() test, resulting in a NULL value, causing the loop. This update adds the spinlock, resolving the issue.

    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 SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE9_12578.NASL
    description This update fixes various security issues and some bugs in the SUSE Linux Enterprise 9 kernel. - 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) - Array index error in the gdth_read_event function in drivers/scsi/gdth.c in the Linux kernel allows local users to cause a denial of service or possibly gain privileges via a negative event index in an IOCTL request. (CVE-2009-3080) - Missing CAP_NET_ADMIN checks in the ebtables netfilter code might have allowed local attackers to modify bridge firewall settings. (CVE-2010-0007) - 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-2009-4536) - The dbg_lvl file for the megaraid_sas driver in the Linux kernel 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) - The z90crypt_unlocked_ioctl function in the z90crypt driver in the Linux kernel does not perform a capability check for the Z90QUIESCE operation, which allows local users to leverage euid 0 privileges to force a driver outage. (CVE-2009-1883) - 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/1/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 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.

    title SuSE 10 Security Update : the Linux kernel (ZYPP Patch Number 6779)
  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    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 Ubuntu Local Security Checks
    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-2010-0147.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security fixes : * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the sctp_rcv_ootb() function in the Linux kernel Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) implementation. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted SCTP packet to a target system, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2010-0008, Important) * a missing boundary check was found in the do_move_pages() function in the memory migration functionality in the Linux kernel. A local user could use this flaw to cause a local denial of service or an information leak. (CVE-2010-0415, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the ip6_dst_lookup_tail() function in the Linux kernel. An attacker on the local network could trigger this flaw by sending IPv6 traffic to a target system, leading to a system crash (kernel OOPS) if dst->neighbour is NULL on the target system when receiving an IPv6 packet. (CVE-2010-0437, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the ext4 file system code in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this flaw to trigger a local denial of service by mounting a specially crafted, journal-less ext4 file system, if that file system forced an EROFS error. (CVE-2009-4308, Moderate) * an information leak was found in the print_fatal_signal() implementation in the Linux kernel. When '/proc/sys/kernel/print-fatal-signals' is set to 1 (the default value is 0), memory that is reachable by the kernel could be leaked to user-space. This issue could also result in a system crash. Note that this flaw only affected the i386 architecture. (CVE-2010-0003, Moderate) * missing capability checks were found in the ebtables implementation, used for creating an Ethernet bridge firewall. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to bypass intended capability restrictions and modify ebtables rules. (CVE-2010-0007, Low) Bug fixes : * a bug prevented Wake on LAN (WoL) being enabled on certain Intel hardware. (BZ#543449) * a race issue in the Journaling Block Device. (BZ#553132) * programs compiled on x86, and that also call sched_rr_get_interval(), were silently corrupted when run on 64-bit systems. (BZ#557684) * the RHSA-2010:0019 update introduced a regression, preventing WoL from working for network devices using the e1000e driver. (BZ#559335) * adding a bonding interface in mode balance-alb to a bridge was not functional. (BZ#560588) * some KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) guests experienced slow performance (and possibly a crash) after suspend/resume. (BZ#560640) * on some systems, VF cannot be enabled in dom0. (BZ#560665) * on systems with certain network cards, a system crash occurred after enabling GRO. (BZ#561417) * for x86 KVM guests with pvclock enabled, the boot clocks were registered twice, possibly causing KVM to write data to a random memory area during the guest's life. (BZ#561454) * serious performance degradation for 32-bit applications, that map (mmap) thousands of small files, when run on a 64-bit system. (BZ#562746) * improved kexec/kdump handling. Previously, on some systems under heavy load, kexec/kdump was not functional. (BZ#562772) * dom0 was unable to boot when using the Xen hypervisor on a system with a large number of logical CPUs. (BZ#562777) * a fix for a bug that could potentially cause file system corruption. (BZ#564281) * a bug caused infrequent cluster issues for users of GFS2. (BZ#564288) * gfs2_delete_inode failed on read-only file systems. (BZ#564290) 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 SuSE 10 Security Update : the debug kernel (ZYPP Patch Number 6778)
  • 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.

    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Kernel was updated to 2.6.27.45 fixing various bugs and security issues. - 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 load_elf_binary function in fs/binfmt_elf.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.32.8 on the x86_64 platform does not ensure that the ELF interpreter is available before a call to the SET_PERSONALITY macro, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a 32-bit application that attempts to execute a 64-bit application and then triggers a segmentation fault, as demonstrated by amd64_killer, related to the flush_old_exec function. (CVE-2010-0307) - Users could send/allocate arbitrary amounts of NETLINK_CONNECTOR messages to the kernel, causing OOM condition, killing selected processes or halting the system. (CVE-2010-0410) - 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 kernels node set.

(CVE-2010-0007) - drivers/net/e1000/e1000_main.c in the e1000 driver in the Linux kernel 2.6.32.3 and earlier 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-2009-4536) - drivers/net/e1000e/netdev.c in the e1000e driver in the Linux kernel 2.6.32.3 and earlier 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-2009-4538) - The print_fatal_signal function in kernel/signal.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.32.4 on the i386 platform, when print-fatal-signals is enabled, allows local users to discover the contents of arbitrary memory locations by jumping to an address and then reading a log file, and might allow local users to cause a denial of service (system slowdown or crash) by jumping to an address. (CVE-2010-0003) - 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-2010-0007) - An information leakage on fatal signals on x86_64 machines was fixed. (CVE-2010-0003) - A race condition in fasync handling could be used by local attackers to crash the machine or potentially execute code. (CVE-2009-4141) - The ipv6_hop_jumbo function in net/ipv6/exthdrs.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.32.4, when network namespaces are enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) via an invalid IPv6 jumbogram.

    title SuSE 11.2 Security Update: kernel (2010-01-28)
  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2010-0146.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. This update fixes the following security issues : * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the sctp_rcv_ootb() function in the Linux kernel Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) implementation. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted SCTP packet to a target system, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2010-0008, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the Linux kernel. During a core dump, the kernel did not check if the Virtual Dynamically-linked Shared Object page was accessible. On Intel 64 and AMD64 systems, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a kernel panic by running a crafted 32-bit application. (CVE-2009-4271, Important) * an information leak was found in the print_fatal_signal() implementation in the Linux kernel. When '/proc/sys/kernel/print-fatal-signals' is set to 1 (the default value is 0), memory that is reachable by the kernel could be leaked to user-space. This issue could also result in a system crash. Note that this flaw only affected the i386 architecture. (CVE-2010-0003, Moderate) * on AMD64 systems, it was discovered that the kernel did not ensure the ELF interpreter was available before making a call to the SET_PERSONALITY macro. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service by running a 32-bit application that attempts to execute a 64-bit application. (CVE-2010-0307, Moderate) * missing capability checks were found in the ebtables implementation, used for creating an Ethernet bridge firewall. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to bypass intended capability restrictions and modify ebtables rules. (CVE-2010-0007, Low) This update also fixes the following bugs : * under some circumstances, a locking bug could have caused an online ext3 file system resize to deadlock, which may have, in turn, caused the file system or the entire system to become unresponsive. In either case, a reboot was required after the deadlock. With this update, using resize2fs to perform an online resize of an ext3 file system works as expected. (BZ#553135) * some ATA and SCSI devices were not honoring the barrier=1 mount option, which could result in data loss after a crash or power loss. This update applies a patch to the Linux SCSI driver to ensure ordered write caching. This solution does not provide cache flushes; however, it does provide data integrity on devices that have no write caching (or where write caching is disabled) and no command queuing. For systems that have command queuing or write cache enabled there is no guarantee of data integrity after a crash. (BZ#560563) * it was found that lpfc_find_target() could loop continuously when scanning a list of nodes due to a missing spinlock. This missing spinlock allowed the list to be changed after the list_empty() test, resulting in a NULL value, causing the loop. This update adds the spinlock, resolving the issue. (BZ#561453) * the fix for CVE-2009-4538 provided by RHSA-2010:0020 introduced a regression, preventing Wake on LAN (WoL) working for network devices using the Intel PRO/1000 Linux driver, e1000e. Attempting to configure WoL for such devices resulted in the following error, even when configuring valid options : 'Cannot set new wake-on-lan settings: Operation not supported not setting wol' This update resolves this regression, and WoL now works as expected for network devices using the e1000e driver. (BZ#565496) 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.

statement Red Hat is aware of this issue and is tracking it via the following bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/CVE-2010-0007. This issue did not affect the version of Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, as it did not include support for ebtables. This issue was addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5 via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0146.html and https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0147.html respectively. A futur e update in Red Hat Enterprise MRG may address this flaw.
