    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.

  • NASL family Scientific Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id SL_20110118_KERNEL_ON_SL4_X.NASL
    description This update fixes the following security issues : - A heap overflow flaw was found in the Linux kernel's Transparent Inter-Process Communication protocol (TIPC) implementation. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2010-3859, Important) - 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 these flaws to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2010-4157, 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) - A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's garbage collector for AF_UNIX sockets. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to trigger a denial of service (out-of-memory condition). (CVE-2010-4249, Moderate) - Missing initialization flaws were found in the Linux kernel. A local, unprivileged user could use these flaws to cause information leaks. (CVE-2010-3876, CVE-2010-4072, CVE-2010-4073, CVE-2010-4075, CVE-2010-4080, CVE-2010-4083, CVE-2010-4158, Low) This update also fixes the following bugs : - A flaw was found in the Linux kernel where, if used in conjunction with another flaw that can result in a kernel Oops, could possibly lead to privilege escalation. It does not affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 as the sysctl panic_on_oops variable is turned on by default. However, as a preventive measure if the variable is turned off by an administrator, this update addresses the issue. (BZ#659568) - On Intel I/O Controller Hub 9 (ICH9) hardware, jumbo frame support is achieved by using page-based sk_buff buffers without any packet split. The entire frame data is copied to the page(s) rather than some to the skb->data area and some to the page(s) when performing a typical packet-split. This caused problems with the filtering code and frames were getting dropped before they were received by listening applications. This bug could eventually lead to the IP address being released and not being able to be re-acquired from DHCP if the MTU (Maximum Transfer Unit) was changed (for an affected interface using the e1000e driver). With this update, frames are no longer dropped and an IP address is correctly re-acquired after a previous release. (BZ#664667) The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service or information leak. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2010-0435 Gleb Napatov reported an issue in the KVM subsystem that allows virtual machines to cause a denial of service of the host machine by executing mov to/from DR instructions. - CVE-2010-3699 Keir Fraser provided a fix for an issue in the Xen subsystem. A guest can cause a denial of service on the host by retaining a leaked reference to a device. This can result in a zombie domain, xenwatch process hangs, and xm command failures. - CVE-2010-4158 Dan Rosenberg discovered an issue in the socket filters subsystem, allowing local unprivileged users to obtain the contents of sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2010-4162 Dan Rosenberg discovered an overflow issue in the block I/O subsystem that allows local users to map large numbers of pages, resulting in a denial of service due to invocation of the out of memory killer. - CVE-2010-4163 Dan Rosenberg discovered an issue in the block I/O subsystem. Due to improper validation of iov segments, local users can trigger a kernel panic resulting in a denial of service. - CVE-2010-4242 Alan Cox reported an issue in the Bluetooth subsystem. Local users with sufficient permission to access HCI UART devices can cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) due to a missing check for an existing tty write operation. - CVE-2010-4243 Brad Spengler reported a denial-of-service issue in the kernel memory accounting system. By passing large argv/envp values to exec, local users can cause the out of memory killer to kill processes owned by other users. - CVE-2010-4248 Oleg Nesterov reported an issue in the POSIX CPU timers subsystem. Local users can cause a denial of service (Oops) due to incorrect assumptions about thread group leader behavior. - CVE-2010-4249 Vegard Nossum reported an issue with the UNIX socket garbage collector. Local users can consume all of LOWMEM and decrease system performance by overloading the system with inflight sockets. - CVE-2010-4258 Nelson Elhage reported an issue in Linux oops handling. Local users may be able to obtain elevated privileges if they are able to trigger an oops with a process' fs set to KERNEL_DS. - CVE-2010-4342 Nelson Elhage reported an issue in the Econet protocol. Remote attackers can cause a denial of service by sending an Acorn Universal Networking packet over UDP. - CVE-2010-4346 Tavis Ormandy discovered an issue in the install_special_mapping routine which allows local users to bypass the mmap_min_addr security restriction. Combined with an otherwise low severity local denial of service vulnerability (NULL pointer dereference), a local user could obtain elevated privileges. - CVE-2010-4526 Eugene Teo reported a race condition in the Linux SCTP implementation. Remote users can cause a denial of service (kernel memory corruption) by transmitting an ICMP unreachable message to a locked socket. - CVE-2010-4527 Dan Rosenberg reported two issues in the OSS soundcard driver. Local users with access to the device (members of group 'audio' on default Debian installations) may access to sensitive kernel memory or cause a buffer overflow, potentially leading to an escalation of privileges. - CVE-2010-4529 Dan Rosenberg reported an issue in the Linux kernel IrDA socket implementation on non-x86 architectures. Local users may be able to gain access to sensitive kernel memory via a specially crafted IRLMP_ENUMDEVICES getsockopt call. - CVE-2010-4565 Dan Rosenberg reported an issue in the Linux CAN protocol implementation. Local users can obtain the address of a kernel heap object which might help facilitate system exploitation. - CVE-2010-4649 Dan Carpenter reported an issue in the uverb handling of the InfiniBand subsystem. A potential buffer overflow may allow local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) by passing in a large cmd.ne value. - CVE-2010-4656 Kees Cook reported an issue in the driver for I/O-Warrior USB devices. Local users with access to these devices may be able to overrun kernel buffers, resulting in a denial of service or privilege escalation. - CVE-2010-4668 Dan Rosenberg reported an issue in the block subsystem. A local user can cause a denial of service (kernel panic) by submitting certain 0-length I/O requests. - CVE-2011-0521 Dan Carpenter reported an issue in the DVB driver for AV7110 cards. Local users can pass a negative info->num value, corrupting kernel memory and causing a denial of service.

    title CentOS 5 : kernel (CESA-2011:0004)
  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE9_12677.NASL
    description This patch updates the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 kernel to fix various security issues and some bugs. The following security issues were fixed : - The hci_uart_tty_open function in the HCI UART driver (drivers/bluetooth/hci_ldisc.c) in the Linux kernel did not verify whether the tty has a write operation, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) via vectors related to the Bluetooth driver. (CVE-2010-4242) - The load_mixer_volumes function in sound/oss/soundcard.c in the OSS sound subsystem in the Linux kernel incorrectly expected that a certain name field ends with a '\0' character, which allowed local users to conduct buffer overflow attacks and gain privileges, or possibly obtain sensitive information from kernel memory, via a SOUND_MIXER_SETLEVELS ioctl call. (CVE-2010-4527) - Integer underflow in the irda_getsockopt function in net/irda/af_irda.c in the Linux kernel on platforms other than x86 allowed local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel heap memory via an IRLMP_ENUMDEVICES getsockopt call. (CVE-2010-4529) - The aun_incoming function in net/econet/af_econet.c in the Linux kernel, when Econet is enabled, allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) by sending an Acorn Universal Networking (AUN) packet over UDP. (CVE-2010-4342) - fs/jfs/xattr.c in the Linux kernel did not properly handle a certain legacy format for storage of extended attributes, which might have allowed local users by bypass intended xattr namespace restrictions via an 'os2.' substring at the beginning of a name. (CVE-2010-2946) - Stack-based buffer overflow in the econet_sendmsg function in net/econet/af_econet.c in the Linux kernel, when an econet address is configured, allowed local users to gain privileges by providing a large number of iovec structures. (CVE-2010-3848) - The econet_sendmsg function in net/econet/af_econet.c in the Linux kernel, when an econet address is configured, allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a sendmsg call that specifies a NULL value for the remote address field. (CVE-2010-3849) - The ec_dev_ioctl function in net/econet/af_econet.c in the Linux kernel does not require the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability, which allowed local users to bypass intended access restrictions and configure econet addresses via an SIOCSIFADDR ioctl call. (CVE-2010-3850) - The do_exit function in kernel/exit.c in the Linux kernel did not properly handle a KERNEL_DS get_fs value, which allowed local users to bypass intended access_ok restrictions, overwrite arbitrary kernel memory locations, and gain privileges by leveraging a (1) BUG, (2) NULL pointer dereference, or (3) page fault, as demonstrated by vectors involving the clear_child_tid feature and the splice system call. (CVE-2010-4258) - Multiple integer overflows in the (1) pppol2tp_sendmsg function in net/l2tp/l2tp_ppp.c, and the (2) l2tp_ip_sendmsg function in net/l2tp/l2tp_ip.c, in the PPPoL2TP and IPoL2TP implementations in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption and panic) or possibly gain privileges via a crafted sendto call. (CVE-2010-4160) - Integer overflow in the ioc_general function in drivers/scsi/gdth.c in the Linux kernel on 64-bit platforms allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a large argument in an ioctl call. (CVE-2010-4157) - Multiple integer underflows in the x25_parse_facilities function in net/x25/x25_facilities.c in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via malformed X.25 (1) X25_FAC_CLASS_A, (2) X25_FAC_CLASS_B, (3) X25_FAC_CLASS_C, or (4) X25_FAC_CLASS_D facility data, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-3873. (CVE-2010-4164) - The sk_run_filter function in net/core/filter.c in the Linux kernel did not check whether a certain memory location has been initialized before executing a (1) BPF_S_LD_MEM or (2) BPF_S_LDX_MEM instruction, which allowed local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted socket filter. (CVE-2010-4158) - 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-2010-3442) - The snd_hdspm_hwdep_ioctl function in sound/pci/rme9652/hdspm.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_HDSPM_IOCTL_GET_CONFIG_INFO ioctl call. (CVE-2010-4081) - The ipc subsystem in the Linux kernel did not initialize certain structures, which allowed local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel stack memory via vectors related to the (1) compat_sys_semctl, (2) compat_sys_msgctl, and (3) compat_sys_shmctl functions in ipc/compat.c; and the (4) compat_sys_mq_open and (5) compat_sys_mq_getsetattr functions in ipc/compat_mq.c. (CVE-2010-4073) - The copy_shmid_to_user function in ipc/shm.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 vectors related to the shmctl system call and the 'old shm interface.'. (CVE-2010-4072) - The copy_semid_to_user function in ipc/sem.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 a (1) IPC_INFO, (2) SEM_INFO, (3) IPC_STAT, or (4) SEM_STAT command in a semctl system call. (CVE-2010-4083) - Integer overflow in the do_io_submit function in fs/aio.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted use of the io_submit system call. (CVE-2010-3067) - Multiple integer signedness errors in net/rose/af_rose.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 rose_getname function call, related to the rose_bind and rose_connect functions.

    title SuSE9 Security Update : the Linux kernel (YOU Patch Number 12677)
  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2011-0162.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and two 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 heap overflow flaw was found in the Linux kernel's Transparent Inter-Process Communication protocol (TIPC) implementation. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2010-3859, Important) * 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 these flaws to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2010-4157, 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) * A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's garbage collector for AF_UNIX sockets. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to trigger a denial of service (out-of-memory condition). (CVE-2010-4249, Moderate) * Missing initialization flaws were found in the Linux kernel. A local, unprivileged user could use these flaws to cause information leaks. (CVE-2010-3876, CVE-2010-4072, CVE-2010-4073, CVE-2010-4075, CVE-2010-4080, CVE-2010-4083, CVE-2010-4158, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Alan Cox for reporting CVE-2010-4242; Vegard Nossum for reporting CVE-2010-4249; Vasiliy Kulikov for reporting CVE-2010-3876; Kees Cook for reporting CVE-2010-4072; and Dan Rosenberg for reporting CVE-2010-4073, CVE-2010-4075, CVE-2010-4080, CVE-2010-4083, and CVE-2010-4158. This update also fixes the following bugs : * A flaw was found in the Linux kernel where, if used in conjunction with another flaw that can result in a kernel Oops, could possibly lead to privilege escalation. It does not affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 as the sysctl panic_on_oops variable is turned on by default. However, as a preventive measure if the variable is turned off by an administrator, this update addresses the issue. Red Hat would like to thank Nelson Elhage for reporting this vulnerability. (BZ#659568) * On Intel I/O Controller Hub 9 (ICH9) hardware, jumbo frame support is achieved by using page-based sk_buff buffers without any packet split. The entire frame data is copied to the page(s) rather than some to the skb->data area and some to the page(s) when performing a typical packet-split. This caused problems with the filtering code and frames were getting dropped before they were received by listening applications. This bug could eventually lead to the IP address being released and not being able to be re-acquired from DHCP if the MTU (Maximum Transfer Unit) was changed (for an affected interface using the e1000e driver). With this update, frames are no longer dropped and an IP address is correctly re-acquired after a previous release. (BZ#664667) 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.

(BZ#664667) Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE9_12672.NASL
    description This patch updates the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 kernel to fix various security issues and some bugs. The following security issues were fixed : - The hci_uart_tty_open function in the HCI UART driver (drivers/bluetooth/hci_ldisc.c) in the Linux kernel did not verify whether the tty has a write operation, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) via vectors related to the Bluetooth driver. (CVE-2010-4242) - The load_mixer_volumes function in sound/oss/soundcard.c in the OSS sound subsystem in the Linux kernel incorrectly expected that a certain name field ends with a '\0' character, which allowed local users to conduct buffer overflow attacks and gain privileges, or possibly obtain sensitive information from kernel memory, via a SOUND_MIXER_SETLEVELS ioctl call. (CVE-2010-4527) - Integer underflow in the irda_getsockopt function in net/irda/af_irda.c in the Linux kernel on platforms other than x86 allowed local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel heap memory via an IRLMP_ENUMDEVICES getsockopt call. (CVE-2010-4529) - The aun_incoming function in net/econet/af_econet.c in the Linux kernel, when Econet is enabled, allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) by sending an Acorn Universal Networking (AUN) packet over UDP. (CVE-2010-4342) - fs/jfs/xattr.c in the Linux kernel did not properly handle a certain legacy format for storage of extended attributes, which might have allowed local users by bypass intended xattr namespace restrictions via an 'os2.' substring at the beginning of a name. (CVE-2010-2946) - Stack-based buffer overflow in the econet_sendmsg function in net/econet/af_econet.c in the Linux kernel, when an econet address is configured, allowed local users to gain privileges by providing a large number of iovec structures. (CVE-2010-3848) - The econet_sendmsg function in net/econet/af_econet.c in the Linux kernel, when an econet address is configured, allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a sendmsg call that specifies a NULL value for the remote address field. (CVE-2010-3849) - The ec_dev_ioctl function in net/econet/af_econet.c in the Linux kernel does not require the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability, which allowed local users to bypass intended access restrictions and configure econet addresses via an SIOCSIFADDR ioctl call. (CVE-2010-3850) - The do_exit function in kernel/exit.c in the Linux kernel did not properly handle a KERNEL_DS get_fs value, which allowed local users to bypass intended access_ok restrictions, overwrite arbitrary kernel memory locations, and gain privileges by leveraging a (1) BUG, (2) NULL pointer dereference, or (3) page fault, as demonstrated by vectors involving the clear_child_tid feature and the splice system call. (CVE-2010-4258) - Multiple integer overflows in the (1) pppol2tp_sendmsg function in net/l2tp/l2tp_ppp.c, and the (2) l2tp_ip_sendmsg function in net/l2tp/l2tp_ip.c, in the PPPoL2TP and IPoL2TP implementations in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption and panic) or possibly gain privileges via a crafted sendto call. (CVE-2010-4160) - Integer overflow in the ioc_general function in drivers/scsi/gdth.c in the Linux kernel on 64-bit platforms allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a large argument in an ioctl call. (CVE-2010-4157) - Multiple integer underflows in the x25_parse_facilities function in net/x25/x25_facilities.c in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via malformed X.25 (1) X25_FAC_CLASS_A, (2) X25_FAC_CLASS_B, (3) X25_FAC_CLASS_C, or (4) X25_FAC_CLASS_D facility data, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-3873. (CVE-2010-4164) - The sk_run_filter function in net/core/filter.c in the Linux kernel did not check whether a certain memory location has been initialized before executing a (1) BPF_S_LD_MEM or (2) BPF_S_LDX_MEM instruction, which allowed local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted socket filter. (CVE-2010-4158) - 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-2010-3442) - The snd_hdspm_hwdep_ioctl function in sound/pci/rme9652/hdspm.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_HDSPM_IOCTL_GET_CONFIG_INFO ioctl call. (CVE-2010-4081) - The ipc subsystem in the Linux kernel did not initialize certain structures, which allowed local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel stack memory via vectors related to the (1) compat_sys_semctl, (2) compat_sys_msgctl, and (3) compat_sys_shmctl functions in ipc/compat.c; and the (4) compat_sys_mq_open and (5) compat_sys_mq_getsetattr functions in ipc/compat_mq.c. (CVE-2010-4073) - The copy_shmid_to_user function in ipc/shm.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 vectors related to the shmctl system call and the 'old shm interface.'. (CVE-2010-4072) - The copy_semid_to_user function in ipc/sem.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 a (1) IPC_INFO, (2) SEM_INFO, (3) IPC_STAT, or (4) SEM_STAT command in a semctl system call. (CVE-2010-4083) - Integer overflow in the do_io_submit function in fs/aio.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted use of the io_submit system call. (CVE-2010-3067) - Multiple integer signedness errors in net/rose/af_rose.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 rose_getname function call, related to the rose_bind and rose_connect functions.
