ID CVE-2014-4608
Summary ** DISPUTED ** Multiple integer overflows in the lzo1x_decompress_safe function in lib/lzo/lzo1x_decompress_safe.c in the LZO decompressor in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a crafted Literal Run. NOTE: the author of the LZO algorithms says "the Linux kernel is *not* affected; media hype."

CWE CWE-119
CAPEC
  • Buffer Overflow via Environment Variables
    This attack pattern involves causing a buffer overflow through manipulation of environment variables. Once the attacker finds that they can modify an environment variable, they may try to overflow associated buffers. This attack leverages implicit trust often placed in environment variables.
  • Overflow Buffers
    Buffer Overflow attacks target improper or missing bounds checking on buffer operations, typically triggered by input injected by an attacker. As a consequence, an attacker is able to write past the boundaries of allocated buffer regions in memory, causing a program crash or potentially redirection of execution as per the attackers' choice.
  • Client-side Injection-induced Buffer Overflow
    This type of attack exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in targeted client software through injection of malicious content from a custom-built hostile service.
  • Filter Failure through Buffer Overflow
    In this attack, the idea is to cause an active filter to fail by causing an oversized transaction. An attacker may try to feed overly long input strings to the program in an attempt to overwhelm the filter (by causing a buffer overflow) and hoping that the filter does not fail securely (i.e. the user input is let into the system unfiltered).
  • MIME Conversion
    An attacker exploits a weakness in the MIME conversion routine to cause a buffer overflow and gain control over the mail server machine. The MIME system is designed to allow various different information formats to be interpreted and sent via e-mail. Attack points exist when data are converted to MIME compatible format and back.
  • Overflow Binary Resource File
    An attack of this type exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in the handling of binary resources. Binary resources may include music files like MP3, image files like JPEG files, and any other binary file. These attacks may pass unnoticed to the client machine through normal usage of files, such as a browser loading a seemingly innocent JPEG file. This can allow the attacker access to the execution stack and execute arbitrary code in the target process. This attack pattern is a variant of standard buffer overflow attacks using an unexpected vector (binary files) to wrap its attack and open up a new attack vector. The attacker is required to either directly serve the binary content to the victim, or place it in a locale like a MP3 sharing application, for the victim to download. The attacker then is notified upon the download or otherwise locates the vulnerability opened up by the buffer overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow via Symbolic Links
    This type of attack leverages the use of symbolic links to cause buffer overflows. An attacker can try to create or manipulate a symbolic link file such that its contents result in out of bounds data. When the target software processes the symbolic link file, it could potentially overflow internal buffers with insufficient bounds checking.
  • Overflow Variables and Tags
    This type of attack leverages the use of tags or variables from a formatted configuration data to cause buffer overflow. The attacker crafts a malicious HTML page or configuration file that includes oversized strings, thus causing an overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow via Parameter Expansion
    In this attack, the target software is given input that the attacker knows will be modified and expanded in size during processing. This attack relies on the target software failing to anticipate that the expanded data may exceed some internal limit, thereby creating a buffer overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow in an API Call
    This attack targets libraries or shared code modules which are vulnerable to buffer overflow attacks. An attacker who has access to an API may try to embed malicious code in the API function call and exploit a buffer overflow vulnerability in the function's implementation. All clients that make use of the code library thus become vulnerable by association. This has a very broad effect on security across a system, usually affecting more than one software process.
  • Buffer Overflow in Local Command-Line Utilities
    This attack targets command-line utilities available in a number of shells. An attacker can leverage a vulnerability found in a command-line utility to escalate privilege to root.

    description A flaw was discovered in how the Linux kernel's KVM (Kernel Virtual Machine) subsystem handles the CR4 control register at VM entry on Intel processors. A local host OS user can exploit this to cause a denial of service (kill arbitrary processes, or system disruption) by leveraging /dev/kvm access. (CVE-2014-3690) Don Bailey discovered a flaw in the LZO decompress algorithm used by the Linux kernel. An attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or OOPS). (CVE-2014-4608) Andy Lutomirski discovered a flaw in how the Linux kernel handles pivot_root when used with a chroot directory. A local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (mount-tree loop). (CVE-2014-7970) Andy Lutomirski discovered that the Linux kernel was not checking the CAP_SYS_ADMIN when remounting filesystems to read-only. A local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (loss of writability). (CVE-2014-7975). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description A flaw was discovered in how the Linux kernel's KVM (Kernel Virtual Machine) subsystem handles the CR4 control register at VM entry on Intel processors. A local host OS user can exploit this to cause a denial of service (kill arbitrary processes, or system disruption) by leveraging /dev/kvm access. (CVE-2014-3690) Don Bailey discovered a flaw in the LZO decompress algorithm used by the Linux kernel. An attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or OOPS). (CVE-2014-4608) Andy Lutomirski discovered a flaw in how the Linux kernel handles pivot_root when used with a chroot directory. A local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (mount-tree loop). (CVE-2014-7970) Andy Lutomirski discovered that the Linux kernel was not checking the CAP_SYS_ADMIN when remounting filesystems to read-only. A local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (loss of writability). (CVE-2014-7975). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description Markus Franz Xaver Johannes Oberhumer reports, in the package's NEWS file : Fixed a potential integer overflow condition in the 'safe' decompressor variants which could result in a possible buffer overrun when processing maliciously crafted compressed input data. As this issue only affects 32-bit systems and also can only happen if you use uncommonly huge buffer sizes where you have to decompress more than 16 MiB (2^24 bytes) compressed bytes within a single function call, the practical implications are limited.

    NASL id SUSE_11_KERNEL-150306.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP3 kernel has been updated to receive various security and bugfixes. New features enabled : - The Ceph and rbd remote network block device drivers are now enabled and supported, to serve as client for SUSE Enterprise Storage 1.0. (FATE#318328) - Support to selected Bay Trail CPUs used in Point of Service Hardware was enabled. (FATE#317933) - Broadwell Legacy Audio, HDMI Audio and DisplayPort Audio support (Audio Driver: HD-A HDMI/DP Audio/HDA Analog/DSP) was enabled. (FATE#317347) The following security bugs have been fixed : - An integer overflow in the stack randomization on 64-bit systems lead to less effective stack ASLR on those systems. (bsc#917839). (CVE-2015-1593) - iptables rules could be bypassed if the specific network protocol module was not loaded, allowing e.g. SCTP to bypass the firewall if the sctp protocol was not enabled. (bsc#913059). (CVE-2014-8160) - A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernels splice() system call validated its parameters. On certain file systems, a local, unprivileged user could have used this flaw to write past the maximum file size, and thus crash the system. (bnc#915322). (CVE-2014-7822) - The __switch_to function in arch/x86/kernel/process_64.c in the Linux kernel did not ensure that Thread Local Storage (TLS) descriptors are loaded before proceeding with other steps, which made it easier for local users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism via a crafted application that reads a TLS base address. (bnc#911326). (CVE-2014-9419) - The parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel did not validate a length value in the Extensions Reference (ER) System Use Field, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via a crafted iso9660 image. (bnc#912654). (CVE-2014-9584) - The vdso_addr function in arch/x86/vdso/vma.c in the Linux kernel did not properly choose memory locations for the vDSO area, which made it easier for local users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism by guessing a location at the end of a PMD. (bnc#912705). (CVE-2014-9585) - The d_walk function in fs/dcache.c in the Linux kernel did not properly maintain the semantics of rename_lock, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (deadlock and system hang) via a crafted application. (bnc#903640). (CVE-2014-8559) - The rock_continue function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel did not restrict the number of Rock Ridge continuation entries, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (infinite loop, and system crash or hang) via a crafted iso9660 image (bsc#911325). (CVE-2014-9420) - The paravirt_ops_setup function in arch/x86/kernel/kvm.c in the Linux kernel used an improper paravirt_enabled setting for KVM guest kernels, which made it easier for guest OS users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism via a crafted application that reads a 16-bit value (bnc#907818 909077 909078). (CVE-2014-8134) - The kvm_iommu_map_pages function in virt/kvm/iommu.c in the Linux kernel miscalculated the number of pages during the handling of a mapping failure, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS page unpinning) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging guest OS privileges. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2014-3601 (bsc#902675). (CVE-2014-8369) - arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel on Intel processors did not ensure that the value in the CR4 control register remains the same after a VM entry, which allowed host OS users to kill arbitrary processes or cause a denial of service (system disruption) by leveraging /dev/kvm access, as demonstrated by PR_SET_TSC prctl calls within a modified copy of QEMU. (bnc#902232). (CVE-2014-3690) - Race condition in arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in the Linux kernel allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) via a crafted application that performs an MMIO transaction or a PIO transaction to trigger a guest userspace emulation error report, a similar issue to CVE-2010-5313. (bnc#905312). (CVE-2014-7842) - The Netlink implementation in the Linux kernel did not provide a mechanism for authorizing socket operations based on the opener of a socket, which allowed local users to bypass intended access restrictions and modify network configurations by using a Netlink socket for the (1) stdout or (2) stderr of a setuid program. (bnc#875051). (CVE-2014-0181) - The SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering a large number of chunks in an associations output queue, as demonstrated by ASCONF probes, related to net/sctp/inqueue.c and net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c. (bnc#902351). (CVE-2014-3688) - The pivot_root implementation in fs/namespace.c in the Linux kernel did not properly interact with certain locations of a chroot directory, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (mount-tree loop) via . (dot) values in both arguments to the pivot_root system call. (bnc#900644). (CVE-2014-7970) - The sctp_assoc_lookup_asconf_ack function in net/sctp/associola.c in the SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via duplicate ASCONF chunks that trigger an incorrect uncork within the side-effect interpreter. (bnc#902349, bnc#904899). (CVE-2014-3687) The following non-security bugs have been fixed : - ACPI idle: permit sparse C-state sub-state numbers (bnc#908550,FATE#317933). - ALSA : hda - not use assigned converters for all unused pins (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - Add Device IDs for Intel Wildcat Point-LP PCH (FATE#317347). - ALSA: hda - Fix onboard audio on Intel H97/Z97 chipsets (FATE#317347). - ALSA: hda - add PCI IDs for Intel BayTrail (FATE#317347). - ALSA: hda - add PCI IDs for Intel Braswell (FATE#317347). - ALSA: hda - add codec ID for Braswell display audio codec (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - add codec ID for Broadwell display audio codec (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - add codec ID for Valleyview2 display codec (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - define is_haswell() to check if a display audio codec is Haswell (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - hdmi: Re-setup pin and infoframe on plug-in on all codecs (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - not choose assigned converters for unused pins of Valleyview (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - rename function not_share_unassigned_cvt() (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - unmute pin amplifier in infoframe setup for Haswell (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - verify pin:converter connection on unsol event for HSW and VLV (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - verify pin:cvt connection on preparing a stream for Intel HDMI codec (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda/hdmi - apply Valleyview fix-ups to Cherryview display codec (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda/hdmi - apply all Haswell fix-ups to Broadwell display codec (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda_intel: Add Device IDs for Intel Sunrise Point PCH (FATE#317347). - ALSA: hda_intel: Add DeviceIDs for Sunrise Point-LP (FATE#317347). - Add support for AdvancedSilicon HID multitouch screen (2149:36b1) (FATE#317933). - Disable switching to bootsplash at oops/panic.

    title SuSE 11.3 Security Update : Linux Kernel (SAT Patch Numbers 10412 / 10415 / 10416)
  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_11_KERNEL-141217.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 __request_module function in kernel/kmod.c in the Linux kernel before 3.4 did not set a certain killable attribute, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a crafted application. (bnc#779488). (CVE-2012-4398) - drivers/hid/hid-zpff.c in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_HID_ZEROPLUS is enabled, allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based out-of-bounds write) via a crafted device. (bnc#835839). (CVE-2013-2889) - The Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_LOGITECH_FF, CONFIG_LOGIG940_FF, or CONFIG_LOGIWHEELS_FF is enabled, allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based out-of-bounds write) via a crafted device, related to (1) drivers/hid/hid-lgff.c, (2) drivers/hid/hid-lg3ff.c, and (3) drivers/hid/hid-lg4ff.c. (bnc#835839). (CVE-2013-2893) - Multiple array index errors in drivers/hid/hid-multitouch.c in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_HID_MULTITOUCH is enabled, allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption, or NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted device. (bnc#835839). (CVE-2013-2897) - drivers/hid/hid-picolcd_core.c in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_HID_PICOLCD is enabled, allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted device. (bnc#835839). (CVE-2013-2899) - The Linux kernel before 3.12.4 updates certain length values before ensuring that associated data structures have been initialized, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a (1) recvfrom, (2) recvmmsg, or (3) recvmsg system call, related to net/ipv4/ping.c, net/ipv4/raw.c, net/ipv4/udp.c, net/ipv6/raw.c, and net/ipv6/udp.c. (bnc#853040, bnc#857643). (CVE-2013-7263) - Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in the magicmouse_raw_event function in drivers/hid/hid-magicmouse.c in the Magic Mouse HID driver in the Linux kernel through 3.16.3 allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted device that provides a large amount of (1) EHCI or (2) XHCI data associated with an event. (bnc#896382). (CVE-2014-3181) - The report_fixup functions in the HID subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.16.2 allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write) via a crafted device that provides a small report descriptor, related to (1) drivers/hid/hid-cherry.c, (2) drivers/hid/hid-kye.c, (3) drivers/hid/hid-lg.c, (4) drivers/hid/hid-monterey.c, (5) drivers/hid/hid-petalynx.c, and (6) drivers/hid/hid-sunplus.c. (bnc#896390). (CVE-2014-3184) - Multiple buffer overflows in the command_port_read_callback function in drivers/usb/serial/whiteheat.c in the Whiteheat USB Serial Driver in the Linux kernel before 3.16.2 allowed physically proximate attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) via a crafted device that provides a large amount of (1) EHCI or (2) XHCI data associated with a bulk response. (bnc#896391). (CVE-2014-3185) - Buffer overflow in the picolcd_raw_event function in devices/hid/hid-picolcd_core.c in the PicoLCD HID device driver in the Linux kernel through 3.16.3, as used in Android on Nexus 7 devices, allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted device that sends a large report. (bnc#896392). (CVE-2014-3186) - The kvm_iommu_map_pages function in virt/kvm/iommu.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 miscalculated the number of pages during the handling of a mapping failure, which allowed guest OS users to (1) cause a denial of service (host OS memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact by triggering a large gfn value or (2) cause a denial of service (host OS memory consumption) by triggering a small gfn value that leads to permanently pinned pages. (bnc#892782). (CVE-2014-3601) - The WRMSR processing functionality in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 did not properly handle the writing of a non-canonical address to a model-specific register, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) by leveraging guest OS privileges, related to the wrmsr_interception function in arch/x86/kvm/svm.c and the handle_wrmsr function in arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c. (bnc#899192). (CVE-2014-3610) - arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 did not have an exit handler for the INVVPID instruction, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) via a crafted application. (bnc#899192). (CVE-2014-3646) - arch/x86/kvm/emulate.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 did not properly perform RIP changes, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) via a crafted application. (bnc#899192). (CVE-2014-3647) - The SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a malformed ASCONF chunk, related to net/sctp/sm_make_chunk.c and net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c. (bnc#902346, bnc#902349). (CVE-2014-3673) - 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, allowed 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) - * DISPUTED * Multiple integer overflows in the lzo1x_decompress_safe function in lib/lzo/lzo1x_decompress_safe.c in the LZO decompressor in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 allowed context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a crafted Literal Run. NOTE: the author of the LZO algorithms says: The Linux kernel is not affected; media hype. (bnc#883948). (CVE-2014-4608) - kernel/trace/trace_syscalls.c in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 did not properly handle private syscall numbers during use of the ftrace subsystem, which allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference) via a crafted application. (bnc#904013). (CVE-2014-7826) - An SCTP server doing ASCONF would panic on malformed INIT ping-of-death. (bnc#905100). (CVE-2014-7841) - The ieee80211_fragment function in net/mac80211/tx.c in the Linux kernel before 3.13.5 did not properly maintain a certain tail pointer, which allowed remote attackers to obtain sensitive cleartext information by reading packets. (bnc#904700). (CVE-2014-8709) - A local user with write access could have used this flaw to crash the kernel or elevate privileges (bnc#905522). The following non-security bugs have been fixed:.

    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues, address several hundred bugs, and add numerous enhancements are now available as part of the ongoing support and maintenance of Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 6. This is the sixth regular update. 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 NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) implementation handled simultaneous connections between the same hosts. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-5077, Important) * An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Frame Buffer device implementation mapped kernel memory to user space via the mmap syscall. A local user able to access a frame buffer device file (/dev/fb*) could possibly use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2013-2596, Important) * A flaw was found in the way the ipc_rcu_putref() function in the Linux kernel's IPC implementation handled reference counter decrementing. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to trigger an Out of Memory (OOM) condition and, potentially, crash the system. (CVE-2013-4483, Moderate) * 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 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) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's kvm_iommu_map_pages() function handled IOMMU mapping failures. A privileged user in a guest with an assigned host device could use this flaw to crash the host. (CVE-2014-3601, Moderate) * Multiple use-after-free flaws were found in the way the Linux kernel's Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) implementation handled user controls. A local, privileged user could use either of these flaws to crash the system. (CVE-2014-4653, CVE-2014-4654, CVE-2014-4655, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's VFS subsystem handled reference counting when performing unmount operations on symbolic links. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to exhaust all available memory on the system or, potentially, trigger a use-after-free error, resulting in a system crash or privilege escalation. (CVE-2014-5045, Moderate) * An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the lzo1x_decompress_safe() function of the Linux kernel's LZO implementation processed Literal Runs. A local attacker could, in extremely rare cases, use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system.

CVE-2014-3690: arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.17.2 on Intel processors did not ensure that the value in the CR4 control register remains the same after a VM entry, which allowed host OS users to kill arbitrary processes or cause a denial of service (system disruption) by leveraging /dev/kvm access, as demonstrated by PR_SET_TSC prctl calls within a modified copy of QEMU (bnc#902232). - CVE-2014-4608: Multiple integer overflows in the lzo1x_decompress_safe function in lib/lzo/lzo1x_decompress_safe.c in the LZO decompressor in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 allowed context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a crafted Literal Run (bnc#883948). - CVE-2014-4943: The PPPoL2TP feature in net/l2tp/l2tp_ppp.c in the Linux kernel through 3.15.6 allowed local users to gain privileges by leveraging data-structure differences between an l2tp socket and an inet socket (bnc#887082). - CVE-2014-5471: Stack consumption vulnerability in the parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 allowed 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-2014-5472: The parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 allowed local users to cause a denial of service (unkillable mount process) via a crafted iso9660 image with a self-referential CL entry (bnc#892490). - CVE-2014-7826: kernel/trace/trace_syscalls.c in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 did not properly handle private syscall numbers during use of the ftrace subsystem, which allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference) via a crafted application (bnc#904013). - CVE-2014-7841: The sctp_process_param function in net/sctp/sm_make_chunk.c in the SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.17.4, when ASCONF is used, allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a malformed INIT chunk (bnc#905100). - CVE-2014-7842: Race condition in arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in the Linux kernel before 3.17.4 allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) via a crafted application that performs an MMIO transaction or a PIO transaction to trigger a guest userspace emulation error report, a similar issue to CVE-2010-5313 (bnc#905312). - CVE-2014-8134: The paravirt_ops_setup function in arch/x86/kernel/kvm.c in the Linux kernel through 3.18 uses an improper paravirt_enabled setting for KVM guest kernels, which made it easier for guest OS users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism via a crafted application that reads a 16-bit value (bnc#909078). - CVE-2014-8369: The kvm_iommu_map_pages function in virt/kvm/iommu.c in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 miscalculates the number of pages during the handling of a mapping failure, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS page unpinning) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging guest OS privileges. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2014-3601 (bnc#902675). - CVE-2014-8559: The d_walk function in fs/dcache.c in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 did not properly maintain the semantics of rename_lock, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (deadlock and system hang) via a crafted application (bnc#903640). - CVE-2014-8709: The ieee80211_fragment function in net/mac80211/tx.c in the Linux kernel before 3.13.5 did not properly maintain a certain tail pointer, which allowed remote attackers to obtain sensitive cleartext information by reading packets (bnc#904700). - CVE-2014-9584: The parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel before 3.18.2 did not validate a length value in the Extensions Reference (ER) System Use Field, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via a crafted iso9660 image (bnc#912654). - CVE-2014-9585: The vdso_addr function in arch/x86/vdso/vma.c in the Linux kernel through 3.18.2 did not properly choose memory locations for the vDSO area, which made it easier for local users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism by guessing a location at the end of a PMD (bnc#912705).

    description Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in the Linux kernel : Multiple buffer overflows in drivers/staging/wlags49_h2/wl_priv.c in the Linux kernel before 3.12 allow local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability and providing a long station-name string, related to the (1) wvlan_uil_put_info and (2) wvlan_set_station_nickname functions (CVE-2013-4514). Use-after-free vulnerability in the skb_segment function in net/core/skbuff.c in the Linux kernel through 3.13.6 allows attackers to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by leveraging the absence of a certain orphaning operation (CVE-2014-0131). 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 (CVE-2014-4027). Multiple integer overflows in the lzo1x_decompress_safe function in lib/lzo/lzo1x_decompress_safe.c in the LZO decompressor in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a crafted Literal Run (CVE-2014-4608). Race condition in the tlv handler functionality in the snd_ctl_elem_user_tlv function in sound/core/control.c in the ALSA control implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by leveraging /dev/snd/controlCX access (CVE-2014-4652). 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 (CVE-2014-4653). 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 (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 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 (CVE-2014-4655). 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 (CVE-2014-4656). 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 (CVE-2014-4667). 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 (CVE-2014-4699). 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 (CVE-2014-4943). The updated packages provides a solution for these security issues.

    title openSUSE Security Update : the Linux Kernel (openSUSE-SU-2014:1677-1)
  • NASL family Oracle Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2014-1392.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2014:1392 : Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues, address several hundred bugs, and add numerous enhancements are now available as part of the ongoing support and maintenance of Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 6. This is the sixth regular update. 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 NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) implementation handled simultaneous connections between the same hosts. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-5077, Important) * An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Frame Buffer device implementation mapped kernel memory to user space via the mmap syscall. A local user able to access a frame buffer device file (/dev/fb*) could possibly use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2013-2596, Important) * A flaw was found in the way the ipc_rcu_putref() function in the Linux kernel's IPC implementation handled reference counter decrementing. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to trigger an Out of Memory (OOM) condition and, potentially, crash the system. (CVE-2013-4483, Moderate) * 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 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) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's kvm_iommu_map_pages() function handled IOMMU mapping failures. A privileged user in a guest with an assigned host device could use this flaw to crash the host. (CVE-2014-3601, Moderate) * Multiple use-after-free flaws were found in the way the Linux kernel's Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) implementation handled user controls. A local, privileged user could use either of these flaws to crash the system. (CVE-2014-4653, CVE-2014-4654, CVE-2014-4655, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's VFS subsystem handled reference counting when performing unmount operations on symbolic links. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to exhaust all available memory on the system or, potentially, trigger a use-after-free error, resulting in a system crash or privilege escalation. (CVE-2014-5045, Moderate) * An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the lzo1x_decompress_safe() function of the Linux kernel's LZO implementation processed Literal Runs. A local attacker could, in extremely rare cases, use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-4608, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Vladimir Davydov of Parallels for reporting CVE-2013-4483, Jack Morgenstein of Mellanox for reporting CVE-2014-3601, Vasily Averin of Parallels for reporting CVE-2014-5045, and Don A. Bailey from Lab Mouse Security for reporting CVE-2014-4608. The security impact of the CVE-2014-3601 issue was discovered by Michael Tsirkin of Red Hat. This update also fixes several hundred bugs and adds numerous enhancements. Refer to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6 Release Notes for information on the most significant of these changes, and the Technical Notes for further information, both linked to in the References. All Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 users are advised to install these updated packages, which correct these issues, and fix the bugs and add the enhancements noted in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6 Release Notes and Technical Notes. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    description Sasha Levin reported a flaw in the Linux kernel's point-to-point protocol (PPP) when used with the Layer Two Tunneling Protocol (L2TP). A local user could exploit this flaw to gain administrative privileges. (CVE-2014-4943) An flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel's audit subsystem when auditing certain syscalls. A local attacker could exploit this flaw to obtain potentially sensitive single-bit values from kernel memory or cause a denial of service (OOPS). (CVE-2014-3917) Don Bailey discovered a flaw in the LZO decompress algorithm used by the Linux kernel. An attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or OOPS). (CVE-2014-4608). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
