(CVE-2012-2744, Important) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's key management facility handled replacement session keyrings on process forks.

(CVE-2012-2745, Moderate) Red Hat would like to thank an anonymous contributor working with the Beyond Security SecuriTeam Secure Disclosure program for reporting CVE-2012-2744. This update also fixes the following bugs : * Previously introduced firmware files required for new Realtek chipsets contained an invalid prefix ('rtl_nic_') in the file names, for example '/lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl_nic_rtl8168d-1.fw'. This update corrects these file names. For example, the aforementioned file is now correctly named '/lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8168d-1.fw'. (BZ#832359) * This update blacklists the ADMA428M revision of the 2GB ATA Flash Disk device. This is due to data corruption occurring on the said device when the Ultra-DMA 66 transfer mode is used. When the 'libata.force=5:pio0,6:pio0' kernel parameter is set, the aforementioned device works as expected. (BZ#832363) * On Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, mounting an NFS export from a Windows 2012 server failed due to the fact that the Windows server contains support for the minor version 1 (v4.1) of the NFS version 4 protocol only, along with support for versions 2 and 3. The lack of the minor version 0 (v4.0) support caused Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 clients to fail instead of rolling back to version 3 as expected. This update fixes this bug and mounting an NFS export works as expected. (BZ#832365) * On ext4 file systems, when fallocate() failed to allocate blocks due to the ENOSPC condition (no space left on device) for a file larger than 4 GB, the size of the file became corrupted and, consequently, caused file system corruption. This was due to a missing cast operator in the 'ext4_fallocate()' function. With this update, the underlying source code has been modified to address this issue, and file system corruption no longer occurs. (BZ#833034) 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 SUSE_KERNEL-8325.NASL
    description This Linux kernel update fixes various security issues and bugs in the SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP4 kernel. The following security issues have been fixed : - kernel/taskstats.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive I/O statistics by sending taskstats commands to a netlink socket, as demonstrated by discovering the length of another users password (a side channel attack). (CVE-2011-2494) - net/ipv6/netfilter/nf_conntrack_reasm.c in the Linux kernel, when the nf_conntrack_ipv6 module is enabled, allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via certain types of fragmented IPv6 packets. (CVE-2012-2744) - Use-after-free vulnerability in the xacct_add_tsk function in kernel/tsacct.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory or cause a denial of service (system crash) via a taskstats TASKSTATS_CMD_ATTR_PID command. (CVE-2012-3510) - The user_update function in security/keys/user_defined.c in the Linux kernel 2.6 allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and kernel oops) via vectors related to a user-defined key and updating a negative key into a fully instantiated key. (CVE-2011-4110) - The ib_uverbs_poll_cq function in drivers/infiniband/core/uverbs_cmd.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain response buffer, which allowed local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory via vectors that cause this buffer to be only partially filled, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-4649. (CVE-2011-1044) - Heap-based buffer overflow in the udf_load_logicalvol function in fs/udf/super.c in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted UDF filesystem. (CVE-2012-3400) - The sock_alloc_send_pskb function in net/core/sock.c in the Linux kernel did not properly validate a certain length value, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow and system crash) or possibly gain privileges by leveraging access to a TUN/TAP device. (CVE-2012-2136) - A small denial of service leak in dropping syn+fin messages was fixed. (CVE-2012-2663) The following non-security issues have been fixed : Packaging : - kbuild: Fix gcc -x syntax (bnc#773831). NFS : - knfsd: An assortment of little fixes to the sunrpc cache code. (bnc#767766) - knfsd: Unexport cache_fresh and fix a small race. (bnc#767766) - knfsd: nfsd: do not drop silently on upcall deferral.

(bnc#767766) - sunrpc/cache: recheck cache validity after cache_defer_req. (bnc#767766) - sunrpc/cache: use list_del_init for the list_head entries in cache_deferred_req. (bnc#767766) - sunrpc/cache: avoid variable over-loading in cache_defer_req. (bnc#767766) - sunrpc/cache: allow thread to block while waiting for cache update. (bnc#767766) - sunrpc/cache: Fix race in sunrpc/cache introduced by patch to allow thread to block while waiting for cache update. (bnc#767766) - sunrpc/cache: Another fix for race problem with sunrpc cache deferal. (bnc#767766) - knfsd: nfsd: make all exp_finding functions return -errnos on err. (bnc#767766) - Fix kabi breakage in previous nfsd patch series. (bnc#767766) - nfsd: Work around incorrect return type for wait_for_completion_interruptible_timeout. (bnc#767766) - nfs: Fix a potential file corruption issue when writing. (bnc#773272) - nfs: Allow sync writes to be multiple pages. (bnc#763526) - nfs: fix reference counting for NFSv4 callback thread. (bnc#767504) - nfs: flush signals before taking down callback thread. (bnc#767504) - nfsv4: Ensure nfs_callback_down() calls svc_destroy() (bnc#767504). SCSI : - SCSI/ch: Check NULL for kmalloc() return. (bnc#783058) - drivers/scsi/aic94xx/aic94xx_init.c: correct the size argument to kmalloc. (bnc#783058) - block: fail SCSI passthrough ioctls on partition devices. (bnc#738400) - dm: do not forward ioctls from logical volumes to the underlying device. (bnc#738400) - vmware: Fix VMware hypervisor detection (bnc#777575, bnc#770507).
