  • Leveraging Race Conditions
    This attack targets a race condition occurring when multiple processes access and manipulate the same resource concurrently and the outcome of the execution depends on the particular order in which the access takes place. The attacker can leverage a race condition by "running the race", modifying the resource and modifying the normal execution flow. For instance a race condition can occur while accessing a file, the attacker can trick the system by replacing the original file with his version and cause the system to read the malicious file.
  • Leveraging Time-of-Check and Time-of-Use (TOCTOU) Race Conditions
    This attack targets a race condition occurring between the time of check (state) for a resource and the time of use of a resource. The typical example is the file access. The attacker can leverage a file access race condition by "running the race", meaning that he would modify the resource between the first time the target program accesses the file and the time the target program uses the file. During that period of time, the attacker could do something such as replace the file and cause an escalation of privilege.

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2014:1023 : Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. 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. * It was found that Linux kernel's ptrace subsystem did not properly sanitize the address-space-control bits when the program-status word (PSW) was being set. On IBM S/390 systems, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to set address-space-control bits to the kernel space, and thus gain read and write access to kernel memory. (CVE-2014-3534, Important) * It was found that the permission checks performed by the Linux kernel when a netlink message was received were not sufficient. A local, unprivileged user could potentially bypass these restrictions by passing a netlink socket as stdout or stderr to a more privileged process and altering the output of this process. (CVE-2014-0181, Moderate) * It was found that a remote attacker could use a race condition flaw in the ath_tx_aggr_sleep() function to crash the system by creating large network traffic on the system's Atheros 9k wireless network adapter. (CVE-2014-2672, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel performed forking inside of a transaction. A local, unprivileged user on a PowerPC system that supports transactional memory could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-2673, Moderate) * A race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's mac80211 subsystem implementation handled synchronization between TX and STA wake-up code paths. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-2706, Moderate) * An integer underflow flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) implementation processed certain COOKIE_ECHO packets. By sending a specially crafted SCTP packet, a remote attacker could use this flaw to prevent legitimate connections to a particular SCTP server socket to be made. (CVE-2014-4667, Moderate) Red Hat would like to thank Martin Schwidefsky of IBM for reporting CVE-2014-3534, Andy Lutomirski for reporting CVE-2014-0181, and Gopal Reddy Kodudula of Nokia Siemens Networks for reporting CVE-2014-4667. This update also fixes the following bugs : * Due to a NULL pointer dereference bug in the IPIP and SIT tunneling code, a kernel panic could be triggered when using IPIP or SIT tunnels with IPsec. This update restructures the related code to avoid a NULL pointer dereference and the kernel no longer panics when using IPIP or SIT tunnels with IPsec. (BZ#1114957) * Previously, an IBM POWER8 system could terminate unexpectedly when the kernel received an IRQ while handling a transactional memory re-checkpoint critical section. This update ensures that IRQs are disabled in this situation and the problem no longer occurs. (BZ#1113150) * A missing read memory barrier, rmb(), in the bnx2x driver caused the kernel to crash under various circumstances. This problem has been fixed by adding an rmb() call to the relevant place in the bnx2x code. (BZ#1107721) * The hpwdt driver previously emitted a panic message that was misleading on certain HP systems. This update ensures that upon a kernel panic, hpwdt displays information valid on all HP systems. (BZ#1096961) * The qla2xxx driver has been upgraded to version 8.06.00.08.07.0-k3, which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version in order to correct various timeout problems with the mailbox commands. (BZ#1112389) * The SCSI mid-layer could retry an I/O operation indefinitely if a storage array repeatedly returned a CHECK CONDITION status to that I/O operation but the sense data was invalid. This update fixes the problem by limiting a time for which is such an I/O operation retried. (BZ#1114468) All kernel users are advised to 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 Mandriva Local Security Checks
    NASL id MANDRIVA_MDVSA-2014-124.NASL
    description Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in the Linux kernel : kernel/auditsc.c in the Linux kernel through 3.14.5, when CONFIG_AUDITSYSCALL is enabled with certain syscall rules, allows local users to obtain potentially sensitive single-bit values from kernel memory or cause a denial of service (OOPS) via a large value of a syscall number (CVE-2014-3917). The futex_requeue function in kernel/futex.c in the Linux kernel through 3.14.5 does not ensure that calls have two different futex addresses, which allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted FUTEX_REQUEUE command that facilitates unsafe waiter modification (CVE-2014-3153). Race condition in the ath_tx_aggr_sleep function in drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath9k/xmit.c in the Linux kernel before 3.13.7 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a large amount of network traffic that triggers certain list deletions (CVE-2014-2672). The (1) BPF_S_ANC_NLATTR and (2) BPF_S_ANC_NLATTR_NEST extension implementations in the sk_run_filter function in net/core/filter.c in the Linux kernel through 3.14.3 do not check whether a certain length value is sufficiently large, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (integer underflow and system crash) via crafted BPF instructions. NOTE: the affected code was moved to the __skb_get_nlattr and __skb_get_nlattr_nest functions before the vulnerability was announced (CVE-2014-3144). The BPF_S_ANC_NLATTR_NEST extension implementation in the sk_run_filter function in net/core/filter.c in the Linux kernel through 3.14.3 uses the reverse order in a certain subtraction, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (over-read and system crash) via crafted BPF instructions. NOTE: the affected code was moved to the __skb_get_nlattr_nest function before the vulnerability was announced (CVE-2014-3145). Integer overflow in the ping_init_sock function in net/ipv4/ping.c in the Linux kernel through 3.14.1 allows local users to cause a denial of service (use-after-free and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via a crafted application that leverages an improperly managed reference counter (CVE-2014-2851). The n_tty_write function in drivers/tty/n_tty.c in the Linux kernel through 3.14.3 does not properly manage tty driver access in the LECHO !OPOST case, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) or gain privileges by triggering a race condition involving read and write operations with long strings (CVE-2014-0196).

Race condition in the mac80211 subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.13.7 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via network traffic that improperly interacts with the WLAN_STA_PS_STA state (aka power-save mode), related to sta_info.c and tx.c (CVE-2014-2706). The sctp_sf_do_5_1D_ce function in net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c in the Linux kernel through 3.13.6 does not validate certain auth_enable and auth_capable fields before making an sctp_sf_authenticate call, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via an SCTP handshake with a modified INIT chunk and a crafted AUTH chunk before a COOKIE_ECHO chunk (CVE-2014-0101). The cifs_iovec_write function in fs/cifs/file.c in the Linux kernel through 3.13.5 does not properly handle uncached write operations that copy fewer than the requested number of bytes, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory, cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash), or possibly gain privileges via a writev system call with a crafted pointer (CVE-2014-0069). arch/s390/kernel/head64.S in the Linux kernel before 3.13.5 on the s390 platform does not properly handle attempted use of the linkage stack, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) by executing a crafted instruction (CVE-2014-2039). Buffer overflow in virt/kvm/irq_comm.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.2.24 allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash) and 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 security_context_to_sid_core function in security/selinux/ss/services.c in the Linux kernel before 3.13.4 allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) by leveraging the CAP_MAC_ADMIN capability to set a zero-length security context (CVE-2014-1874). The updated packages provides a solution for these security issues.

    NASL id SUSE_11_KERNEL-140924.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Service Pack 3 kernel has been updated to fix various bugs and security issues. The following security bugs have been fixed : - The media_device_enum_entities function in drivers/media/media-device.c in the Linux kernel before 3.14.6 does not initialize a certain data structure, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by leveraging /dev/media0 read access for a MEDIA_IOC_ENUM_ENTITIES ioctl call. (bnc#882804). (CVE-2014-1739) - mm/shmem.c in the Linux kernel through 3.15.1 does not properly implement the interaction between range notification and hole punching, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (i_mutex hold) by using the mmap system call to access a hole, as demonstrated by interfering with intended shmem activity by blocking completion of (1) an MADV_REMOVE madvise call or (2) an FALLOC_FL_PUNCH_HOLE fallocate call.

(CVE-2014-4943) - The sctp_assoc_update function in net/sctp/associola.c in the Linux kernel through 3.15.8, when SCTP authentication is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) by starting to establish an association between two endpoints immediately after an exchange of INIT and INIT ACK chunks to establish an earlier association between these endpoints in the opposite direction. (bnc#889173). (CVE-2014-5077) - Stack consumption vulnerability in the parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 allows local users to cause a denial of service (uncontrolled recursion, and system crash or reboot) via a crafted iso9660 image with a CL entry referring to a directory entry that has a CL entry. (bnc#892490).

    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2014-1023.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. 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. * It was found that Linux kernel's ptrace subsystem did not properly sanitize the address-space-control bits when the program-status word (PSW) was being set. On IBM S/390 systems, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to set address-space-control bits to the kernel space, and thus gain read and write access to kernel memory. (CVE-2014-3534, Important) * It was found that the permission checks performed by the Linux kernel when a netlink message was received were not sufficient. A local, unprivileged user could potentially bypass these restrictions by passing a netlink socket as stdout or stderr to a more privileged process and altering the output of this process. (CVE-2014-0181, Moderate) * It was found that a remote attacker could use a race condition flaw in the ath_tx_aggr_sleep() function to crash the system by creating large network traffic on the system's Atheros 9k wireless network adapter. (CVE-2014-2672, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel performed forking inside of a transaction. A local, unprivileged user on a PowerPC system that supports transactional memory could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-2673, Moderate) * A race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's mac80211 subsystem implementation handled synchronization between TX and STA wake-up code paths. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-2706, Moderate) * An integer underflow flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) implementation processed certain COOKIE_ECHO packets. By sending a specially crafted SCTP packet, a remote attacker could use this flaw to prevent legitimate connections to a particular SCTP server socket to be made. (CVE-2014-4667, Moderate) Red Hat would like to thank Martin Schwidefsky of IBM for reporting CVE-2014-3534, Andy Lutomirski for reporting CVE-2014-0181, and Gopal Reddy Kodudula of Nokia Siemens Networks for reporting CVE-2014-4667. This update also fixes the following bugs : * Due to a NULL pointer dereference bug in the IPIP and SIT tunneling code, a kernel panic could be triggered when using IPIP or SIT tunnels with IPsec. This update restructures the related code to avoid a NULL pointer dereference and the kernel no longer panics when using IPIP or SIT tunnels with IPsec. (BZ#1114957) * Previously, an IBM POWER8 system could terminate unexpectedly when the kernel received an IRQ while handling a transactional memory re-checkpoint critical section. This update ensures that IRQs are disabled in this situation and the problem no longer occurs. (BZ#1113150) * A missing read memory barrier, rmb(), in the bnx2x driver caused the kernel to crash under various circumstances. This problem has been fixed by adding an rmb() call to the relevant place in the bnx2x code. (BZ#1107721) * The hpwdt driver previously emitted a panic message that was misleading on certain HP systems. This update ensures that upon a kernel panic, hpwdt displays information valid on all HP systems. (BZ#1096961) * The qla2xxx driver has been upgraded to version 8.06.00.08.07.0-k3, which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version in order to correct various timeout problems with the mailbox commands. (BZ#1112389) * The SCSI mid-layer could retry an I/O operation indefinitely if a storage array repeatedly returned a CHECK CONDITION status to that I/O operation but the sense data was invalid. This update fixes the problem by limiting a time for which is such an I/O operation retried. (BZ#1114468) All kernel users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Service Pack 3 kernel has been updated to fix various bugs and security issues. The following security bugs have been fixed : - The media_device_enum_entities function in drivers/media/media-device.c in the Linux kernel before 3.14.6 does not initialize a certain data structure, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by leveraging /dev/media0 read access for a MEDIA_IOC_ENUM_ENTITIES ioctl call. (bnc#882804). (CVE-2014-1739) - mm/shmem.c in the Linux kernel through 3.15.1 does not properly implement the interaction between range notification and hole punching, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (i_mutex hold) by using the mmap system call to access a hole, as demonstrated by interfering with intended shmem activity by blocking completion of (1) an MADV_REMOVE madvise call or (2) an FALLOC_FL_PUNCH_HOLE fallocate call. (bnc#883518). (CVE-2014-4171) - arch/x86/kernel/entry_32.S in the Linux kernel through 3.15.1 on 32-bit x86 platforms, when syscall auditing is enabled and the sep CPU feature flag is set, allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS and system crash) via an invalid syscall number, as demonstrated by number 1000. (bnc#883724). (CVE-2014-4508) - The sctp_association_free function in net/sctp/associola.c in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 does not properly manage a certain backlog value, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (socket outage) via a crafted SCTP packet. (bnc#885422). (CVE-2014-4667) - The PPPoL2TP feature in net/l2tp/l2tp_ppp.c in the Linux kernel through 3.15.6 allows local users to gain privileges by leveraging data-structure differences between an l2tp socket and an inet socket. (bnc#887082). (CVE-2014-4943) - The sctp_assoc_update function in net/sctp/associola.c in the Linux kernel through 3.15.8, when SCTP authentication is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) by starting to establish an association between two endpoints immediately after an exchange of INIT and INIT ACK chunks to establish an earlier association between these endpoints in the opposite direction. (bnc#889173). (CVE-2014-5077) - Stack consumption vulnerability in the parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 allows local users to cause a denial of service (uncontrolled recursion, and system crash or reboot) via a crafted iso9660 image with a CL entry referring to a directory entry that has a CL entry. (bnc#892490). (CVE-2014-5471) - The parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 allows local users to cause a denial of service (unkillable mount process) via a crafted iso9660 image with a self-referential CL entry.

(CVE-2014-5472) - Race condition in the mac80211 subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.13.7 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via network traffic that improperly interacts with the WLAN_STA_PS_STA state (aka power-save mode), related to sta_info.c and tx.c. (bnc#871797). (CVE-2014-2706) - The rd_build_device_space function in drivers/target/target_core_rd.c in the Linux kernel before 3.14 does not properly initialize a certain data structure, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from ramdisk_mcp memory by leveraging access to a SCSI initiator. (bnc#882639). (CVE-2014-4027) - The futex_requeue function in kernel/futex.c in the Linux kernel through 3.14.5 does not ensure that calls have two different futex addresses, which allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted FUTEX_REQUEUE command that facilitates unsafe waiter modification.

    title SuSE 11.3 Security Update : Linux kernel (SAT Patch Number 9750)
  • NASL family CentOS Local Security Checks
    NASL id CENTOS_RHSA-2014-1023.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. 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. * It was found that Linux kernel's ptrace subsystem did not properly sanitize the address-space-control bits when the program-status word (PSW) was being set. On IBM S/390 systems, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to set address-space-control bits to the kernel space, and thus gain read and write access to kernel memory. (CVE-2014-3534, Important) * It was found that the permission checks performed by the Linux kernel when a netlink message was received were not sufficient. A local, unprivileged user could potentially bypass these restrictions by passing a netlink socket as stdout or stderr to a more privileged process and altering the output of this process. (CVE-2014-0181, Moderate) * It was found that a remote attacker could use a race condition flaw in the ath_tx_aggr_sleep() function to crash the system by creating large network traffic on the system's Atheros 9k wireless network adapter. (CVE-2014-2672, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel performed forking inside of a transaction. A local, unprivileged user on a PowerPC system that supports transactional memory could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-2673, Moderate) * A race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's mac80211 subsystem implementation handled synchronization between TX and STA wake-up code paths. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-2706, Moderate) * An integer underflow flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) implementation processed certain COOKIE_ECHO packets. By sending a specially crafted SCTP packet, a remote attacker could use this flaw to prevent legitimate connections to a particular SCTP server socket to be made. (CVE-2014-4667, Moderate) Red Hat would like to thank Martin Schwidefsky of IBM for reporting CVE-2014-3534, Andy Lutomirski for reporting CVE-2014-0181, and Gopal Reddy Kodudula of Nokia Siemens Networks for reporting CVE-2014-4667. This update also fixes the following bugs : * Due to a NULL pointer dereference bug in the IPIP and SIT tunneling code, a kernel panic could be triggered when using IPIP or SIT tunnels with IPsec. This update restructures the related code to avoid a NULL pointer dereference and the kernel no longer panics when using IPIP or SIT tunnels with IPsec. (BZ#1114957) * Previously, an IBM POWER8 system could terminate unexpectedly when the kernel received an IRQ while handling a transactional memory re-checkpoint critical section. This update ensures that IRQs are disabled in this situation and the problem no longer occurs. (BZ#1113150) * A missing read memory barrier, rmb(), in the bnx2x driver caused the kernel to crash under various circumstances. This problem has been fixed by adding an rmb() call to the relevant place in the bnx2x code. (BZ#1107721) * The hpwdt driver previously emitted a panic message that was misleading on certain HP systems. This update ensures that upon a kernel panic, hpwdt displays information valid on all HP systems. (BZ#1096961) * The qla2xxx driver has been upgraded to version 8.06.00.08.07.0-k3, which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version in order to correct various timeout problems with the mailbox commands. (BZ#1112389) * The SCSI mid-layer could retry an I/O operation indefinitely if a storage array repeatedly returned a CHECK CONDITION status to that I/O operation but the sense data was invalid. This update fixes the problem by limiting a time for which is such an I/O operation retried. (BZ#1114468) All kernel users are advised to 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 Ubuntu Local Security Checks
    NASL id UBUNTU_USN-2224-1.NASL
    description Matthew Daley reported an information leak in the floppy disk driver of the Linux kernel. An unprivileged local user could exploit this flaw to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory.

  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2014-1101.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 Extended Update Support. Red Hat Product Security 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. * A use-after-free flaw was found in the way the ping_init_sock() function of the Linux kernel handled the group_info reference counter. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-2851, Important) * A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the rds_ib_laddr_check() function in the Linux kernel's implementation of Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS). A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2013-7339, Moderate) * It was found that a remote attacker could use a race condition flaw in the ath_tx_aggr_sleep() function to crash the system by creating large network traffic on the system's Atheros 9k wireless network adapter. (CVE-2014-2672, Moderate) * A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the rds_iw_laddr_check() function in the Linux kernel's implementation of Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS). A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-2678, Moderate) * A race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's mac80211 subsystem implementation handled synchronization between TX and STA wake-up code paths. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-2706, Moderate) This update also fixes the following bugs : * The Completely Fair Scheduler (CFS) did not verify whether the CFS period timer is running while throttling tasks on the CFS run queue. Therefore under certain circumstances, the CFS run queue became stuck because the CFS period timer was inactive and could not be restarted. To fix this problem, the CFS now restarts the CFS period timer inside the throttling function if it is inactive. (BZ#1120666) * A previous change to the SCSI code fixed a race condition that could occur when removing a SCSI device. However, that change caused performance degradation because it used a certain function from the block layer code that was returning different values compared with later versions of the kernel. This update alters the SCSI code to properly utilize the values returned by the block layer code. (BZ#1117581) * If a statically defined gateway became unreachable and its corresponding neighbor entry entered a FAILED state, the gateway stayed in the FAILED state even after it became reachable again. This prevented routing of the traffic through that gateway. This update allows probing such a gateway automatically and routing the traffic through the gateway again once it becomes reachable. (BZ#1115262) * A miscalculation in the 'radix_tree' swap encoding corrupted swap area indexes bigger than 8 by truncating lower bits of swap entries. Consequently, systems with more than 8 swap areas could trigger a bogus OOM scenario when swapping out to such a swap area. This update fixes this problem by reducing a return value of the SWP_TYPE_SHIFT() function and removing a broken function call from the read_swap_header() function. (BZ#1099727) * The automatic route cache rebuilding feature could incorrectly compute the length of a route hash chain if the cache contained multiple entries with the same key but a different TOS, mark, or OIF bit. Consequently, the feature could reach the rebuild limit and disable the routing cache on the system. This problem is fixed by using a helper function that avoids counting such duplicate routes. (BZ#1113823) * When booting a guest in the Hyper-V environment and enough of Programmable Interval Timer (PIT) interrupts were lost or not injected into the guest on time, the kernel panicked and the guest failed to boot. This problem has been fixed by bypassing the relevant PIT check when the guest is running under the Hyper-V environment. (BZ#1112225) All kernel users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    description Updated kernel-rt packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.5. 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-rt packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. * A race condition leading to a use-after-free flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's TCP/IP protocol suite implementation handled the addition of fragments to the LRU (Last-Recently Used) list under certain conditions. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system by sending a large amount of specially crafted fragmented packets to that system. (CVE-2014-0100, Important) * A race condition flaw, leading to heap-based buffer overflows, was found in the way the Linux kernel's N_TTY line discipline (LDISC) implementation handled concurrent processing of echo output and TTY write operations originating from user space when the underlying TTY driver was PTY. An unprivileged, local user could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-0196, Important) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's floppy driver handled user space provided data in certain error code paths while processing FDRAWCMD IOCTL commands. A local user with write access to /dev/fdX could use this flaw to free (using the kfree() function) arbitrary kernel memory. (CVE-2014-1737, Important) * It was found that the Linux kernel's floppy driver leaked internal kernel memory addresses to user space during the processing of the FDRAWCMD IOCTL command. A local user with write access to /dev/fdX could use this flaw to obtain information about the kernel heap arrangement. (CVE-2014-1738, Low) Note: A local user with write access to /dev/fdX could use these two flaws (CVE-2014-1737 in combination with CVE-2014-1738) to escalate their privileges on the system. * A use-after-free flaw was found in the way the ping_init_sock() function of the Linux kernel handled the group_info reference counter. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-2851, Important) * It was found that a remote attacker could use a race condition flaw in the ath_tx_aggr_sleep() function to crash the system by creating large network traffic on the system's Atheros 9k wireless network adapter. (CVE-2014-2672, Moderate) * A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the rds_iw_laddr_check() function in the Linux kernel's implementation of Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS). A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-2678, Moderate) * A race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's mac80211 subsystem implementation handled synchronization between TX and STA wake-up code paths. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-2706, Moderate) * It was found that the try_to_unmap_cluster() function in the Linux kernel's Memory Managment subsystem did not properly handle page locking in certain cases, which could potentially trigger the BUG_ON() macro in the mlock_vma_page() function. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-3122, Moderate) Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which upgrade the kernel-rt kernel to version kernel-rt-3.10.33-rt32.34 and correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

(bnc#883795) - CVE-2014-4653: sound/core/control.c in the ALSA control implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 does not ensure possession of a read/write lock, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (use-after-free) and obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by leveraging /dev/snd/controlCX access. (bnc#883795) - CVE-2014-4654: The snd_ctl_elem_add function in sound/core/control.c in the ALSA control implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 does not check authorization for SNDRV_CTL_IOCTL_ELEM_REPLACE commands, which allows local users to remove kernel controls and cause a denial of service (use-after-free and system crash) by leveraging /dev/snd/controlCX access for an ioctl call. (bnc#883795) - CVE-2014-4655: The snd_ctl_elem_add function in sound/core/control.c in the ALSA control implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 does not properly maintain the user_ctl_count value, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (integer overflow and limit bypass) by leveraging /dev/snd/controlCX access for a large number of SNDRV_CTL_IOCTL_ELEM_REPLACE ioctl calls. (bnc#883795) - CVE-2014-4656: Multiple integer overflows in sound/core/control.c in the ALSA control implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 allow local users to cause a denial of service by leveraging /dev/snd/controlCX access, related to (1) index values in the snd_ctl_add function and (2) numid values in the snd_ctl_remove_numid_conflict function. (bnc#883795) - CVE-2014-4667: The sctp_association_free function in net/sctp/associola.c in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 does not properly manage a certain backlog value, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (socket outage) via a crafted SCTP packet. (bnc#885422) - CVE-2014-4699: The Linux kernel before 3.15.4 on Intel processors does not properly restrict use of a non-canonical value for the saved RIP address in the case of a system call that does not use IRET, which allows local users to leverage a race condition and gain privileges, or cause a denial of service (double fault), via a crafted application that makes ptrace and fork system calls. (bnc#885725) - CVE-2014-5077: The sctp_assoc_update function in net/sctp/associola.c in the Linux kernel through 3.15.8, when SCTP authentication is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) by starting to establish an association between two endpoints immediately after an exchange of INIT and INIT ACK chunks to establish an earlier association between these endpoints in the opposite direction.
