    NASL id SUSE_11_KERNEL-130426.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP2 kernel has been updated to 3.0.74 fix various security issues and bugs : This update brings some features : - Updated HD-audio drivers for Nvidia/AMD HDMI and Haswell audio (FATE#314311 FATE#313695) - Lustre enablement patches were added (FATE#314679). - SGI UV (Ultraviolet) platform support. (FATE#306952) Security issues fixed in this update : - The hidp_setup_hid function in net/bluetooth/hidp/core.c in the Linux kernel did not properly copy a certain name field, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by setting a long name and making an HIDPCONNADD ioctl call. (CVE-2013-0349) - Buffer overflow in virt/kvm/irq_comm.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (crash) and to possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors related to Message Signaled Interrupts (MSI), irq routing entries, and an incorrect check by the setup_routing_entry function before invoking the kvm_set_irq function. (CVE-2012-2137) - The isofs_export_encode_fh function in fs/isofs/export.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain structure member, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel heap memory via a crafted application. (CVE-2012-6549) - The udf_encode_fh function in fs/udf/namei.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain structure member, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel heap memory via a crafted application. (CVE-2012-6548) - Timing side channel on attacks were possible on /dev/ptmx that could allow local attackers to predict keypresses like e.g. passwords. This has been fixed by not updating accessed/modified time on the pty devices. Note that this might break pty idle detection, so it might get reverted again. (CVE-2013-0160) - The Xen netback functionality in the Linux kernel allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (loop) by triggering ring pointer corruption. (CVE-2013-0216) - The pciback_enable_msi function in the PCI backend driver (drivers/xen/pciback/conf_space_capability_msi.c) in Xen for the Linux allowed guest OS users with PCI device access to cause a denial of service via a large number of kernel log messages. (CVE-2013-0231) - The translate_desc function in drivers/vhost/vhost.c in the Linux kernel did not properly handle cross-region descriptors, which allowed guest OS users to obtain host OS privileges by leveraging KVM guest OS privileges. (CVE-2013-0311) - Integer overflow in drivers/gpu/drm/i915/i915_gem_execbuffer.c in the i915 driver in the Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted application that triggers many relocation copies, and potentially leads to a race condition. (CVE-2013-0913) - The flush_signal_handlers function in kernel/signal.c in the Linux kernel preserved the value of the sa_restorer field across an exec operation, which makes it easier for local users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism via a crafted application containing a sigaction system call. (CVE-2013-0914) - Use-after-free vulnerability in the shmem_remount_fs function in mm/shmem.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or to cause a denial of service (system crash) by remounting a tmpfs filesystem without specifying a required mpol (aka mempolicy) mount option. (CVE-2013-1767) - The log_prefix function in kernel/printk.c in the Linux kernel 3.x did not properly remove a prefix string from a syslog header, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow and system crash) by leveraging /dev/kmsg write access and triggering a call_console_drivers function call. (CVE-2013-1772) - The chase_port function in drivers/usb/serial/io_ti.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via an attempted /dev/ttyUSB read or write operation on a disconnected Edgeport USB serial converter. (CVE-2013-1774) - Race condition in the install_user_keyrings function in security/keys/process_keys.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via crafted keyctl system calls that trigger keyring operations in simultaneous threads. (CVE-2013-1792) - The kvm_set_msr_common function in arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in the Linux kernel did not ensure a required time_page alignment during an MSR_KVM_SYSTEM_TIME operation, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow and host OS memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted application. (CVE-2013-1796) - Use-after-free vulnerability in arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in the Linux kernel allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted application that triggers use of a guest physical address (GPA) in (1) movable or (2) removable memory during an MSR_KVM_SYSTEM_TIME kvm_set_msr_common operation. (CVE-2013-1797) - The ioapic_read_indirect function in virt/kvm/ioapic.c in the Linux kernel did not properly handle a certain combination of invalid IOAPIC_REG_SELECT and IOAPIC_REG_WINDOW operations, which allows guest OS users to obtain sensitive information from host OS memory or cause a denial of service (host OS OOPS) via a crafted application. (CVE-2013-1798) - fs/ext3/super.c in the Linux kernel used incorrect arguments to functions in certain circumstances related to printk input, which allowed local users to conduct format-string attacks and possibly gain privileges via a crafted application. (CVE-2013-1848) - Heap-based buffer overflow in the wdm_in_callback function in drivers/usb/class/cdc-wdm.c in the Linux kernel allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or to possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted cdc-wdm USB device. (CVE-2013-1860) - net/dcb/dcbnl.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize certain structures, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted application. (CVE-2013-2634) - The rtnl_fill_ifinfo function in net/core/rtnetlink.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain structure member, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted application. (CVE-2013-2635) - The msr_open function in arch/x86/kernel/msr.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to bypass intended capability restrictions by executing a crafted application as root, as demonstrated by msr32.c.

    description The bt_sock_recvmsg function in net/bluetooth/af_bluetooth.c in the Linux kernel before 3.9-rc7 does not properly initialize a certain length variable, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call. The udf_encode_fh function in fs/udf/namei.c in the Linux kernel before 3.6 does not initialize a certain structure member, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel heap memory via a crafted application. The ftrace implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.8.8 allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging the CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability for write access to the (1) set_ftrace_pid or (2) set_graph_function file, and then making an lseek system call. The rtnl_fill_ifinfo function in net/core/rtnetlink.c in the Linux kernel before 3.8.4 does not initialize a certain structure member, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted application. The ip6_sk_dst_check function in net/ipv6/ip6_output.c in the Linux kernel before 3.10 allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) by using an AF_INET6 socket for a connection to an IPv4 interface. The tcp_read_sock function in net/ipv4/tcp.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.34 does not properly manage skb consumption, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a crafted splice system call for a TCP socket. The rfcomm_sock_recvmsg function in net/bluetooth/rfcomm/sock.c in the Linux kernel before 3.9-rc7 does not initialize a certain length variable, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call. Format string vulnerability in the b43_request_firmware function in drivers/net/wireless/b43/main.c in the Broadcom B43 wireless driver in the Linux kernel through 3.9.4 allows local users to gain privileges by leveraging root access and including format string specifiers in an fwpostfix modprobe parameter, leading to improper construction of an error message. The (1) key_notify_sa_flush and (2) key_notify_policy_flush functions in net/key/af_key.c in the Linux kernel before 3.10 do not initialize certain structure members, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel heap memory by reading a broadcast message from the notify interface of an IPSec key_socket. The vcc_recvmsg function in net/atm/common.c in the Linux kernel before 3.9-rc7 does not initialize a certain length variable, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call. The flush_signal_handlers function in kernel/signal.c in the Linux kernel before 3.8.4 preserves the value of the sa_restorer field across an exec operation, which makes it easier for local users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism via a crafted application containing a sigaction system call. net/dcb/dcbnl.c in the Linux kernel before 3.8.4 does not initialize certain structures, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted application. fs/ext3/super.c in the Linux kernel before 3.8.4 uses incorrect arguments to functions in certain circumstances related to printk input, which allows local users to conduct format-string attacks and possibly gain privileges via a crafted application. net/ceph/auth_none.c in the Linux kernel through 3.10 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via an auth_reply message that triggers an attempted build_request operation.

    title CentOS 6 : kernel (CESA-2013:1051)
  • NASL family Oracle Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2013-1051.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2013:1051 : 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 moderate 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 the tcp_read_sock() function in the Linux kernel's IPv4 TCP/IP protocol suite implementation in the way socket buffers (skb) were handled. A local, unprivileged user could trigger this issue via a call to splice(), leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2013-2128, Moderate) * Information leak flaws in the Linux kernel could allow a local, unprivileged user to leak kernel memory to user-space. (CVE-2012-6548, CVE-2013-2634, CVE-2013-2635, CVE-2013-3222, CVE-2013-3224, CVE-2013-3225, Low) * An information leak was found in the Linux kernel's POSIX signals implementation. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) security feature. (CVE-2013-0914, Low) * A format string flaw was found in the ext3_msg() function in the Linux kernel's ext3 file system implementation. A local user who is able to mount an ext3 file system could use this flaw to cause a denial of service or, potentially, escalate their privileges. (CVE-2013-1848, Low) * A format string flaw was found in the b43_do_request_fw() function in the Linux kernel's b43 driver implementation. A local user who is able to specify the 'fwpostfix' b43 module parameter could use this flaw to cause a denial of service or, potentially, escalate their privileges. (CVE-2013-2852, Low) * A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the Linux kernel's ftrace and function tracer implementations. A local user who has the CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2013-3301, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Kees Cook for reporting CVE-2013-2852. This update also fixes several bugs. Documentation for these changes will be available shortly from the Technical Notes document linked to in the References section. 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.
