    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2011:0007 : Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. 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. * Buffer overflow in eCryptfs. When /dev/ecryptfs has world-writable permissions (which it does not, by default, on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6), a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service or possibly escalate their privileges. (CVE-2010-2492, Important) * Integer overflow in the RDS protocol implementation could allow a local, unprivileged user to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2010-3865, Important) * Missing boundary checks in the PPP over L2TP sockets implementation could allow a local, unprivileged user to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2010-4160, Important) * NULL pointer dereference in the igb driver. If both Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) and promiscuous mode were enabled on an interface using igb, it could result in a denial of service when a tagged VLAN packet is received on that interface. (CVE-2010-4263, Important) * Missing initialization flaw in the XFS file system implementation, and in the network traffic policing implementation, could allow a local, unprivileged user to cause an information leak. (CVE-2010-3078, CVE-2010-3477, Moderate) * NULL pointer dereference in the Open Sound System compatible sequencer driver could allow a local, unprivileged user with access to /dev/sequencer to cause a denial of service. /dev/sequencer is only accessible to root and users in the audio group by default. (CVE-2010-3080, Moderate) * Flaw in the ethtool IOCTL handler could allow a local user to cause an information leak. (CVE-2010-3861, Moderate) * Flaw in bcm_connect() in the Controller Area Network (CAN) Broadcast Manager. On 64-bit systems, writing the socket address may overflow the procname character array. (CVE-2010-3874, Moderate) * Flaw in the module for monitoring the sockets of INET transport protocols could allow a local, unprivileged user to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2010-3880, Moderate) * Missing boundary checks in the block layer implementation could allow a local, unprivileged user to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4162, CVE-2010-4163, CVE-2010-4668, Moderate) * NULL pointer dereference in the Bluetooth HCI UART driver could allow a local, unprivileged user to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4242, Moderate) * Flaw in the Linux kernel CPU time clocks implementation for the POSIX clock interface could allow a local, unprivileged user to cause a denial of service.

  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_11_3_KERNEL-101215.NASL
    description The openSUSE 11.3 kernel was updated to fix various bugs and security issues. Following security issues have been fixed: CVE-2010-4347: A local user could inject ACPI code into the kernel via the world-writable 'custom_debug' file, allowing local privilege escalation. CVE-2010-4258: A local attacker could use a Oops (kernel crash) caused by other flaws to write a 0 byte to a attacker controlled address in the kernel. This could lead to privilege escalation together with other issues. CVE-2010-4157: A 32bit vs 64bit integer mismatch in gdth_ioctl_alloc could lead to memory corruption in the GDTH driver. CVE-2010-4165: The do_tcp_setsockopt function in net/ipv4/tcp.c in the Linux kernel did not properly restrict TCP_MAXSEG (aka MSS) values, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) via a setsockopt call that specifies a small value, leading to a divide-by-zero error or incorrect use of a signed integer. CVE-2010-4164: A remote (or local) attacker communicating over X.25 could cause a kernel panic by attempting to negotiate malformed facilities. CVE-2010-4175: A local attacker could cause memory overruns in the RDS protocol stack, potentially crashing the kernel. So far it is considered not to be exploitable. CVE-2010-4169: Use-after-free vulnerability in mm/mprotect.c in the Linux kernel allwed local users to cause a denial of service via vectors involving an mprotect system call. CVE-2010-3874: A minor heap overflow in the CAN network module was fixed. Due to nature of the memory allocator it is likely not exploitable. CVE-2010-4158: A memory information leak in berkely packet filter rules allowed local attackers to read uninitialized memory of the kernel stack. CVE-2010-4162: A local denial of service in the blockdevice layer was fixed. CVE-2010-4163: By submitting certain I/O requests with 0 length, a local user could have caused a kernel panic. CVE-2010-0435: The Hypervisor in KVM 83, when the Intel VT-x extension is enabled, allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and host OS crash) via vectors related to instruction emulation. CVE-2010-3861: The ethtool_get_rxnfc function in net/core/ethtool.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain block of heap memory, which allowed local users to obtain potentially sensitive information via an ETHTOOL_GRXCLSRLALL ethtool command with a large info.rule_cnt value. CVE-2010-3442: Multiple integer overflows in the snd_ctl_new function in sound/core/control.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted (1) SNDRV_CTL_IOCTL_ELEM_ADD or (2) SNDRV_CTL_IOCTL_ELEM_REPLACE ioctl call. CVE-2010-3437: A range checking overflow in pktcdvd ioctl was fixed. CVE-2010-4078: The sisfb_ioctl function in drivers/video/sis/sis_main.c in the Linux kernel did not properly initialize a certain structure member, which allowed local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel stack memory via an FBIOGET_VBLANK ioctl call. CVE-2010-4080: The snd_hdsp_hwdep_ioctl function in sound/pci/rme9652/hdsp.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain structure, which allowed local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel stack memory via an SNDRV_HDSP_IOCTL_GET_CONFIG_INFO ioctl call.

    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues, several bugs, and add an enhancement 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. This update fixes the following security issues : * A flaw was found in sctp_packet_config() in the Linux kernel's Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) implementation. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2010-3432, Important) * A missing integer overflow check was found in snd_ctl_new() in the Linux kernel's sound subsystem. A local, unprivileged user on a 32-bit system could use this flaw to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2010-3442, Important) * A heap overflow flaw in the Linux kernel's Transparent Inter-Process Communication protocol (TIPC) implementation could allow a local, unprivileged user to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2010-3859, Important) * An integer overflow flaw was found in the Linux kernel's Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS) protocol implementation. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2010-3865, Important) * A flaw was found in the Xenbus code for the unified block-device I/O interface back end. A privileged guest user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service on the host system running the Xen hypervisor. (CVE-2010-3699, Moderate) * Missing sanity checks were found in setup_arg_pages() in the Linux kernel. When making the size of the argument and environment area on the stack very large, it could trigger a BUG_ON(), resulting in a local denial of service. (CVE-2010-3858, Moderate) * A flaw was found in inet_csk_diag_dump() in the Linux kernel's module for monitoring the sockets of INET transport protocols. By sending a netlink message with certain bytecode, a local, unprivileged user could cause a denial of service. (CVE-2010-3880, Moderate) * Missing sanity checks were found in gdth_ioctl_alloc() in the gdth driver in the Linux kernel. A local user with access to '/dev/gdth' on a 64-bit system could use this flaw to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2010-4157, Moderate) * The fix for Red Hat Bugzilla bug 484590 as provided in RHSA-2009:1243 introduced a regression. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4161, Moderate) * A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the Bluetooth HCI UART driver in the Linux kernel. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4242, Moderate) * It was found that a malicious guest running on the Xen hypervisor could place invalid data in the memory that the guest shared with the blkback and blktap back-end drivers, resulting in a denial of service on the host system. (CVE-2010-4247, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's CPU time clocks implementation for the POSIX clock interface. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4248, Moderate) * Missing initialization flaws in the Linux kernel could lead to information leaks. (CVE-2010-3876, CVE-2010-4083, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Dan Rosenberg for reporting CVE-2010-3442, CVE-2010-4161, and CVE-2010-4083; Thomas Pollet for reporting CVE-2010-3865; Brad Spengler for reporting CVE-2010-3858; Nelson Elhage for reporting CVE-2010-3880; Alan Cox for reporting CVE-2010-4242; and Vasiliy Kulikov for reporting CVE-2010-3876.
