ID CVE-2014-5077
Summary 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.

    NASL id MANDRIVA_MDVSA-2014-201.NASL
    description Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in the Linux kernel : The try_to_unmap_cluster function in mm/rmap.c in the Linux kernel before 3.14.3 does not properly consider which pages must be locked, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) by triggering a memory-usage pattern that requires removal of page-table mappings (CVE-2014-3122). 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 allow 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 (CVE-2014-3181). Array index error in the logi_dj_raw_event function in drivers/hid/hid-logitech-dj.c in the Linux kernel before 3.16.2 allows physically proximate attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (invalid kfree) via a crafted device that provides a malformed REPORT_TYPE_NOTIF_DEVICE_UNPAIRED value (CVE-2014-3182). The report_fixup functions in the HID subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.16.2 might allow 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 (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 allow 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 (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, allows 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 (CVE-2014-3186). arch/s390/kernel/ptrace.c in the Linux kernel before 3.15.8 on the s390 platform does not properly restrict address-space control operations in PTRACE_POKEUSR_AREA requests, which allows local users to obtain read and write access to kernel memory locations, and consequently gain privileges, via a crafted application that makes a ptrace system call (CVE-2014-3534). The kvm_iommu_map_pages function in virt/kvm/iommu.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 miscalculates the number of pages during the handling of a mapping failure, which allows 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 (CVE-2014-3601). 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 (CVE-2014-5077). The do_remount function in fs/namespace.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 does not maintain the MNT_LOCK_READONLY bit across a remount of a bind mount, which allows local users to bypass an intended read-only restriction and defeat certain sandbox protection mechanisms via a mount -o remount command within a user namespace (CVE-2014-5206). 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 (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). The __udf_read_inode function in fs/udf/inode.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.3 does not restrict the amount of ICB indirection, which allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop or stack consumption) via a UDF filesystem with a crafted inode (CVE-2014-6410). The do_umount function in fs/namespace.c in the Linux kernel through 3.17 does not require the CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability for do_remount_sb calls that change the root filesystem to read-only, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (loss of writability) by making certain unshare system calls, clearing the / MNT_LOCKED flag, and making an MNT_FORCE umount system call (CVE-2014-7975). The updated packages provides a solution for these security issues.

  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    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. (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. (bnc#892490). (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. (bnc#880892). (CVE-2014-3153) - Avoid infinite loop when processing indirect ICBs (bnc#896689) The following non-security bugs have been fixed:.

    title Scientific Linux Security Update : kernel on SL6.x i386/x86_64
  • NASL family Oracle Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2014-1724.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2014:1724 : Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues and bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. 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. Security fixes : * A race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's KVM subsystem handled PIT (Programmable Interval Timer) emulation. A guest user who has access to the PIT I/O ports could use this flaw to crash the host. (CVE-2014-3611, Important) * 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) * It was found that the Linux kernel's KVM subsystem did not handle the VM exits gracefully for the invept (Invalidate Translations Derived from EPT) and invvpid (Invalidate Translations Based on VPID) instructions. On hosts with an Intel processor and invept/invppid VM exit support, an unprivileged guest user could use these instructions to crash the guest. (CVE-2014-3645, CVE-2014-3646, Moderate) * A use-after-free flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) implementation handled user controls. A local, privileged user could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-4653, Moderate) Red Hat would like to thank Lars Bull of Google for reporting CVE-2014-3611, and the Advanced Threat Research team at Intel Security for reporting CVE-2014-3645 and CVE-2014-3646. Bug fixes : * A known issue that could prevent Chelsio adapters using the cxgb4 driver from being initialized on IBM POWER8 systems has been fixed. These adapters can now be used on IBM POWER8 systems as expected. (BZ#1130548) * When bringing a hot-added CPU online, the kernel did not initialize a CPU mask properly, which could result in a kernel panic. This update corrects the bug by ensuring that the CPU mask is properly initialized and the correct NUMA node selected. (BZ#1134715) * The kernel could fail to bring a CPU online if the hardware supported both, the acpi-cpufreq and intel_pstate modules. This update ensures that the acpi-cpufreq module is not loaded in the intel_pstate module is loaded. (BZ#1134716) * Due to a bug in the time accounting of the kernel scheduler, a divide error could occur when hot adding a CPU. To fix this problem, the kernel scheduler time accounting has been reworked. (BZ#1134717) * The kernel did not handle exceptions caused by an invalid floating point control (FPC) register, resulting in a kernel oops. This problem has been fixed by placing the label to handle these exceptions to the correct place in the code. (BZ#1138733) * A previous change to the kernel for the PowerPC architecture changed implementation of the compat_sys_sendfile() function. Consequently, the 64-bit sendfile() system call stopped working for files larger than 2 GB on PowerPC. This update restores previous behavior of sendfile() on PowerPC, and it again process files bigger than 2 GB as expected. (BZ#1139126) * Previously, the kernel scheduler could schedule a CPU topology update even though the topology did not change. This could negatively affect the CPU load balancing, cause degradation of the system performance, and eventually result in a kernel oops. This problem has been fixed by skipping the CPU topology update if the topology has not actually changed. (BZ#1140300) * Previously, recovery of a double-degraded RAID6 array could, under certain circumstances, result in data corruption. This could happen because the md driver was using an optimization that is safe to use only for single-degraded arrays. This update ensures that this optimization is skipped during the recovery of double-degraded RAID6 arrays. (BZ#1143850) 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 SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_11_KERNEL-BIGSMP-201409-140924.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. (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. (bnc#892490). (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. (bnc#880892). (CVE-2014-3153) - Avoid infinite loop when processing indirect ICBs (bnc#896689) The following non-security bugs have been fixed:. (CVE-2014-6410) - ACPI / PAD: call schedule() when need_resched() is true. (bnc#866911) - ACPI: Fix bug when ACPI reset register is implemented in system memory. (bnc#882900) - ACPI: Limit access to custom_method. (bnc#884333) - ALSA: hda - Enabling Realtek ALC 671 codec.

    title SuSE 11.3 Security Update : Linux kernel (SAT Patch Number 9750)
  • 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 The openSUSE 12.3 kernel was updated to fix security issues : This will be the final kernel update for openSUSE 13.2 during its lifetime, which ends January 4th 2015. CVE-2014-9322: A local privilege escalation in the x86_64 32bit compatibility signal handling was fixed, which could be used by local attackers to crash the machine or execute code. CVE-2014-9090: The do_double_fault function in arch/x86/kernel/traps.c in the Linux kernel did not properly handle faults associated with the Stack Segment (SS) segment register, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (panic) via a modify_ldt system call, as demonstrated by sigreturn_32 in the linux-clock-tests test suite.

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 flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's futex subsystem handled reference counting when requeuing futexes during futex_wait(). A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to zero out the reference counter of an inode or an mm struct that backs up the memory area of the futex, which could lead to a use-after-free flaw, resulting in a system crash or, potentially, privilege escalation. (CVE-2014-0205) * 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) The security impact of the CVE-2014-0205 issue was discovered by Mateusz Guzik of Red Hat. 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 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.

    description Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues and bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. 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. Security fixes : * A race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's KVM subsystem handled PIT (Programmable Interval Timer) emulation. A guest user who has access to the PIT I/O ports could use this flaw to crash the host. (CVE-2014-3611, Important) * 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) * It was found that the Linux kernel's KVM subsystem did not handle the VM exits gracefully for the invept (Invalidate Translations Derived from EPT) and invvpid (Invalidate Translations Based on VPID) instructions. On hosts with an Intel processor and invept/invppid VM exit support, an unprivileged guest user could use these instructions to crash the guest. (CVE-2014-3645, CVE-2014-3646, Moderate) * A use-after-free flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) implementation handled user controls. A local, privileged user could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-4653, Moderate) Red Hat would like to thank Lars Bull of Google for reporting CVE-2014-3611, and the Advanced Threat Research team at Intel Security for reporting CVE-2014-3645 and CVE-2014-3646. Bug fixes : * A known issue that could prevent Chelsio adapters using the cxgb4 driver from being initialized on IBM POWER8 systems has been fixed. These adapters can now be used on IBM POWER8 systems as expected. (BZ#1130548) * When bringing a hot-added CPU online, the kernel did not initialize a CPU mask properly, which could result in a kernel panic. This update corrects the bug by ensuring that the CPU mask is properly initialized and the correct NUMA node selected. (BZ#1134715) * The kernel could fail to bring a CPU online if the hardware supported both, the acpi-cpufreq and intel_pstate modules. This update ensures that the acpi-cpufreq module is not loaded in the intel_pstate module is loaded. (BZ#1134716) * Due to a bug in the time accounting of the kernel scheduler, a divide error could occur when hot adding a CPU. To fix this problem, the kernel scheduler time accounting has been reworked. (BZ#1134717) * The kernel did not handle exceptions caused by an invalid floating point control (FPC) register, resulting in a kernel oops. This problem has been fixed by placing the label to handle these exceptions to the correct place in the code. (BZ#1138733) * A previous change to the kernel for the PowerPC architecture changed implementation of the compat_sys_sendfile() function. Consequently, the 64-bit sendfile() system call stopped working for files larger than 2 GB on PowerPC. This update restores previous behavior of sendfile() on PowerPC, and it again process files bigger than 2 GB as expected. (BZ#1139126) * Previously, the kernel scheduler could schedule a CPU topology update even though the topology did not change. This could negatively affect the CPU load balancing, cause degradation of the system performance, and eventually result in a kernel oops. This problem has been fixed by skipping the CPU topology update if the topology has not actually changed. (BZ#1140300) * Previously, recovery of a double-degraded RAID6 array could, under certain circumstances, result in data corruption. This could happen because the md driver was using an optimization that is safe to use only for single-degraded arrays. This update ensures that this optimization is skipped during the recovery of double-degraded RAID6 arrays. (BZ#1143850) 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.

(bnc#873374) - CVE-2014-3144: 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. (bnc#877257) - CVE-2014-3145: 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. (bnc#877257) - CVE-2014-3917: 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. (bnc#880484) - CVE-2014-4508: 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-2014-4652: 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. (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.

    title SUSE SLES11 Security Update : kernel (SUSE-SU-2014:1105-1)
  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2014-1724.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues and bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. 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. Security fixes : * A race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's KVM subsystem handled PIT (Programmable Interval Timer) emulation. A guest user who has access to the PIT I/O ports could use this flaw to crash the host. (CVE-2014-3611, Important) * 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) * It was found that the Linux kernel's KVM subsystem did not handle the VM exits gracefully for the invept (Invalidate Translations Derived from EPT) and invvpid (Invalidate Translations Based on VPID) instructions. On hosts with an Intel processor and invept/invppid VM exit support, an unprivileged guest user could use these instructions to crash the guest. (CVE-2014-3645, CVE-2014-3646, Moderate) * A use-after-free flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) implementation handled user controls. A local, privileged user could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-4653, Moderate) Red Hat would like to thank Lars Bull of Google for reporting CVE-2014-3611, and the Advanced Threat Research team at Intel Security for reporting CVE-2014-3645 and CVE-2014-3646. Bug fixes : * A known issue that could prevent Chelsio adapters using the cxgb4 driver from being initialized on IBM POWER8 systems has been fixed. These adapters can now be used on IBM POWER8 systems as expected. (BZ#1130548) * When bringing a hot-added CPU online, the kernel did not initialize a CPU mask properly, which could result in a kernel panic. This update corrects the bug by ensuring that the CPU mask is properly initialized and the correct NUMA node selected. (BZ#1134715) * The kernel could fail to bring a CPU online if the hardware supported both, the acpi-cpufreq and intel_pstate modules. This update ensures that the acpi-cpufreq module is not loaded in the intel_pstate module is loaded. (BZ#1134716) * Due to a bug in the time accounting of the kernel scheduler, a divide error could occur when hot adding a CPU. To fix this problem, the kernel scheduler time accounting has been reworked. (BZ#1134717) * The kernel did not handle exceptions caused by an invalid floating point control (FPC) register, resulting in a kernel oops. This problem has been fixed by placing the label to handle these exceptions to the correct place in the code. (BZ#1138733) * A previous change to the kernel for the PowerPC architecture changed implementation of the compat_sys_sendfile() function. Consequently, the 64-bit sendfile() system call stopped working for files larger than 2 GB on PowerPC. This update restores previous behavior of sendfile() on PowerPC, and it again process files bigger than 2 GB as expected. (BZ#1139126) * Previously, the kernel scheduler could schedule a CPU topology update even though the topology did not change. This could negatively affect the CPU load balancing, cause degradation of the system performance, and eventually result in a kernel oops. This problem has been fixed by skipping the CPU topology update if the topology has not actually changed. (BZ#1140300) * Previously, recovery of a double-degraded RAID6 array could, under certain circumstances, result in data corruption. This could happen because the md driver was using an optimization that is safe to use only for single-degraded arrays. This update ensures that this optimization is skipped during the recovery of double-degraded RAID6 arrays. (BZ#1143850) 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.
