    NASL id SL_20150128_KERNEL_ON_SL7_X.NASL
    description - A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's SCTP implementation validated INIT chunks when performing Address Configuration Change (ASCONF). A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system by sending a specially crafted SCTP packet to trigger a NULL pointer dereference on the system. (CVE-2014-7841, Important) - A race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's mmap(2), madvise(2), and fallocate(2) system calls interacted with each other while operating on virtual memory file system files. A local user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2014-4171, Moderate) - A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Common Internet File System (CIFS) implementation handled mounting of file system shares. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash a client system that would mount a file system share from a malicious server. (CVE-2014-7145, Moderate) - A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's splice() system call validated its parameters. On certain file systems, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to write past the maximum file size, and thus crash the system. (CVE-2014-7822, Moderate) - It was found that the parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal() function of the Linux kernel's ISOFS implementation did not correctly check relocated directories when processing Rock Ridge child link (CL) tags. An attacker with physical access to the system could use a specially crafted ISO image to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-5471, CVE-2014-5472, Low) This update also fixes the following bugs : - Previously, a kernel panic could occur if a process reading from a locked NFS file was killed and the lock was not released properly before the read operations finished. Consequently, the system crashed. The code handling file locks has been fixed, and instead of halting, the system now emits a warning about the unreleased lock. - A race condition in the command abort handling logic of the ipr device driver could cause the kernel to panic when the driver received a response to an abort command prior to receiving other responses to the aborted command due to the support for multiple interrupts. With this update, the abort handler waits for the aborted command's responses first before completing an abort operation. - Previously, a race condition could occur when changing a Page Table Entry (PTE) or a Page Middle Directory (PMD) to 'pte_numa' or 'pmd_numa', respectively, causing the kernel to crash. This update removes the BUG_ON() macro from the __handle_mm_fault() function, preventing the kernel panic in the aforementioned scenario. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2 Advanced 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 flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's SCTP implementation validated INIT chunks when performing Address Configuration Change (ASCONF). A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system by sending a specially crafted SCTP packet to trigger a NULL pointer dereference on the system. (CVE-2014-7841, Important) * It was found that the Linux kernel's Infiniband subsystem did not properly sanitize input parameters while registering memory regions from user space via the (u)verbs API. A local user with access to a /dev/infiniband/uverbsX device could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-8159, 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) * It was found that the parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal() function of the Linux kernel's ISOFS implementation did not correctly check relocated directories when processing Rock Ridge child link (CL) tags. An attacker with physical access to the system could use a specially crafted ISO image to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-5471, CVE-2014-5472, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Mellanox for reporting the CVE-2014-8159 issue. The CVE-2014-7841 issue was discovered by Liu Wei of Red Hat. This update also fixes the following bugs : * Previously, certain network device drivers did not accept ethtool commands right after they were loaded. As a consequence, the current setting of the specified device driver was not applied and an error message was returned. The ETHTOOL_DELAY variable has been added, which makes sure the ethtool utility waits for some time before it tries to apply the options settings, thus fixing the bug. (BZ#1138299) * During the memory allocation for a new socket to communicate to the server, the rpciod daemon released a clean page which needed to be committed. However, the commit was queueing indefinitely as the commit could only be provided with a socket connection. As a consequence, a deadlock occurred in rpciod. This update sets the PF_FSTRANS flag on the work queue task prior to the socket allocation, and adds the nfs_release_page check for the flag when deciding whether to make a commit call, thus fixing this bug. (BZ#1192326) 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.

(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#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:.

(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.

  • NASL family Mandriva Local Security Checks
    NASL id MANDRIVA_MDVSA-2015-027.NASL
    description Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in the Linux kernel : The SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.17.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering a large number of chunks in an association's output queue, as demonstrated by ASCONF probes, related to net/sctp/inqueue.c and net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c (CVE-2014-3688=. Buffer overflow in net/ceph/auth_x.c in Ceph, as used in the Linux kernel before 3.16.3, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and panic) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a long unencrypted auth ticket (CVE-2014-6416). net/ceph/auth_x.c in Ceph, as used in the Linux kernel before 3.16.3, does not properly consider the possibility of kmalloc failure, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a long unencrypted auth ticket (CVE-2014-6417). net/ceph/auth_x.c in Ceph, as used in the Linux kernel before 3.16.3, does not properly validate auth replies, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted data from the IP address of a Ceph Monitor (CVE-2014-6418). 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, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a malformed INIT chunk (CVE-2014-7841). Race condition in arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in the Linux kernel before 3.17.4 allows 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 (CVE-2014-7842). arch/x86/kernel/tls.c in the Thread Local Storage (TLS) implementation in the Linux kernel through 3.18.1 allows local users to bypass the espfix protection mechanism, and consequently makes it easier for local users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism, via a crafted application that makes a set_thread_area system call and later reads a 16-bit value (CVE-2014-8133). Stack-based buffer overflow in the ttusbdecfe_dvbs_diseqc_send_master_cmd function in drivers/media/usb/ttusb-dec/ttusbdecfe.c in the Linux kernel before 3.17.4 allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly gain privileges via a large message length in an ioctl call (CVE-2014-8884). The do_double_fault function in arch/x86/kernel/traps.c in the Linux kernel through 3.17.4 does not properly handle faults associated with the Stack Segment (SS) segment register, which allows 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 (CVE-2014-9090). arch/x86/kernel/entry_64.S in the Linux kernel before 3.17.5 does not properly handle faults associated with the Stack Segment (SS) segment register, which allows local users to gain privileges by triggering an IRET instruction that leads to access to a GS Base address from the wrong space (CVE-2014-9322). The __switch_to function in arch/x86/kernel/process_64.c in the Linux kernel through 3.18.1 does not ensure that Thread Local Storage (TLS) descriptors are loaded before proceeding with other steps, which makes it easier for local users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism via a crafted application that reads a TLS base address (CVE-2014-9419). The rock_continue function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel through 3.18.1 does not restrict the number of Rock Ridge continuation entries, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (infinite loop, and system crash or hang) via a crafted iso9660 image (CVE-2014-9420). Race condition in the key_gc_unused_keys function in security/keys/gc.c in the Linux kernel through 3.18.2 allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or panic) or possibly have unspecified other impact via keyctl commands that trigger access to a key structure member during garbage collection of a key (CVE-2014-9529). The parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel before 3.18.2 does not validate a length value in the Extensions Reference (ER) System Use Field, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via a crafted iso9660 image (CVE-2014-9584). The vdso_addr function in arch/x86/vdso/vma.c in the Linux kernel through 3.18.2 does not properly choose memory locations for the vDSO area, which makes it easier for local users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism by guessing a location at the end of a PMD (CVE-2014-9585). The updated packages provides a solution for these security issues.

    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 kernel was updated to 3.12.38 to receive various security and bugfixes. This update contains the following feature enablements : - The remote block device (rbd) and ceph drivers have been enabled and are now supported. (FATE#318350) These can be used e.g. for accessing the SUSE Enterprise Storage product services. - Support for Intel Select Bay trail CPUs has been added. (FATE#316038) Following security issues were fixed : - CVE-2014-9419: The __switch_to function in arch/x86/kernel/process_64.c in the Linux kernel through 3.18.1 did not ensure that Thread Local Storage (TLS) descriptors were 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-2014-7822: 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. - CVE-2014-8160: The connection tracking module could be bypassed if a specific protocol module was not loaded, e.g. allowing SCTP traffic while the firewall should have filtered it. - 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). The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details. Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    title openSUSE Security Update : Linux Kernel (openSUSE-SU-2014:1678-1)
  • NASL family Oracle Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2015-0102.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2015:0102 : Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several 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. * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's SCTP implementation validated INIT chunks when performing Address Configuration Change (ASCONF). A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system by sending a specially crafted SCTP packet to trigger a NULL pointer dereference on the system. (CVE-2014-7841, Important) * A race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's mmap(2), madvise(2), and fallocate(2) system calls interacted with each other while operating on virtual memory file system files. A local user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2014-4171, Moderate) * A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Common Internet File System (CIFS) implementation handled mounting of file system shares. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash a client system that would mount a file system share from a malicious server. (CVE-2014-7145, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's splice() system call validated its parameters. On certain file systems, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to write past the maximum file size, and thus crash the system. (CVE-2014-7822, Moderate) * It was found that the parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal() function of the Linux kernel's ISOFS implementation did not correctly check relocated directories when processing Rock Ridge child link (CL) tags. An attacker with physical access to the system could use a specially crafted ISO image to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-5471, CVE-2014-5472, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Akira Fujita of NEC for reporting the CVE-2014-7822 issue. The CVE-2014-7841 issue was discovered by Liu Wei of Red Hat. This update also fixes the following bugs : * Previously, a kernel panic could occur if a process reading from a locked NFS file was killed and the lock was not released properly before the read operations finished. Consequently, the system crashed. The code handling file locks has been fixed, and instead of halting, the system now emits a warning about the unreleased lock. (BZ#1172266) * A race condition in the command abort handling logic of the ipr device driver could cause the kernel to panic when the driver received a response to an abort command prior to receiving other responses to the aborted command due to the support for multiple interrupts. With this update, the abort handler waits for the aborted command's responses first before completing an abort operation. (BZ#1162734) * Previously, a race condition could occur when changing a Page Table Entry (PTE) or a Page Middle Directory (PMD) to 'pte_numa' or 'pmd_numa', respectively, causing the kernel to crash. This update removes the BUG_ON() macro from the __handle_mm_fault() function, preventing the kernel panic in the aforementioned scenario. (BZ#1170662) 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 An information leak in the Linux kernel was discovered that could leak the high 16 bits of the kernel stack address on 32-bit Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM) paravirt guests. A user in the guest OS could exploit this leak to obtain information that could potentially be used to aid in attacking the kernel. (CVE-2014-8134) Rabin Vincent, Robert Swiecki, Russell King discovered that the ftrace subsystem of the Linux kernel does not properly handle private syscall numbers. A local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (OOPS). (CVE-2014-7826) Rabin Vincent, Robert Swiecki, Russell Kinglaw discovered a flaw in how the perf subsystem of the Linux kernel handles private systecall numbers. A local user could exploit this to cause a denial of service (OOPS) or bypass ASLR protections via a crafted application. (CVE-2014-7825) A NULL pointer dereference flaw was discovered in the the Linux kernel's SCTP implementation when ASCONF is used. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a malformed INIT chunk. (CVE-2014-7841) A stack buffer overflow was discovered in the ioctl command handling for the Technotrend/Hauppauge USB DEC devices driver. A local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly gain privileges. (CVE-2014-8884) Andy Lutomirski discovered that the Linux kernel does not properly handle faults associated with the Stack Segment (SS) register on the x86 architecture. A local attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (panic). (CVE-2014-9090). 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 Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 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 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 flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's SCTP implementation validated INIT chunks when performing Address Configuration Change (ASCONF). A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system by sending a specially crafted SCTP packet to trigger a NULL pointer dereference on the system. (CVE-2014-7841, 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) * A memory corruption flaw was found in the way the USB ConnectTech WhiteHEAT serial driver processed completion commands sent via USB Request Blocks buffers. An attacker with physical access to the system could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-3185, Moderate) * 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 flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's netfilter subsystem handled generic protocol tracking. As demonstrated in the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) case, a remote attacker could use this flaw to bypass intended iptables rule restrictions when the associated connection tracking module was not loaded on the system. (CVE-2014-8160, Moderate) Red Hat would like to thank Lars Bull of Google for reporting CVE-2014-3611, Vladimir Davydov (Parallels) for reporting CVE-2013-4483, and the Advanced Threat Research team at Intel Security for reporting CVE-2014-3645 and CVE-2014-3646. The CVE-2014-7841 issue was discovered by Liu Wei of Red Hat. Bug fixes : * When forwarding a packet, the iptables target TCPOPTSTRIP used the tcp_hdr() function to locate the option space. Consequently, TCPOPTSTRIP located the incorrect place in the packet, and therefore did not match options for stripping. TCPOPTSTRIP now uses the TCP header itself to locate the option space, and the options are now properly stripped. (BZ#1172026) * The ipset utility computed incorrect values of timeouts from an old IP set, and these values were then supplied to a new IP set. A resize on an IP set with a timeouts option enabled could then supply corrupted data from an old IP set. This bug has been fixed by properly reading timeout values from an old set before supplying them to a new set. (BZ#1172763) * Incorrect processing of errors from the BCM5719 LAN controller could result in incoming packets being dropped. Now, received errors are handled properly, and incoming packets are no longer randomly dropped. (BZ#1180405) * When the NVMe driver allocated a name-space queue, it was recognized as a request-based driver, whereas it was a BIO-based driver. While trying to access data during the loading of NVMe along with a request-based DM device, the system could terminate unexpectedly or become unresponsive. Now, NVMe does not set the QUEUE_FLAG_STACKABLE flag during the allocation of a name-space queue, and the system no longer attempts to insert a request into the queue, preventing a crash. (BZ#1180554) 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.

(CVE-2014-4171, Moderate) * A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Common Internet File System (CIFS) implementation handled mounting of file system shares. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash a client system that would mount a file system share from a malicious server. (CVE-2014-7145, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's splice() system call validated its parameters. On certain file systems, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to write past the maximum file size, and thus crash the system. (CVE-2014-7822, Moderate) * It was found that the parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal() function of the Linux kernel's ISOFS implementation did not correctly check relocated directories when processing Rock Ridge child link (CL) tags.

Consequently, the system crashed. The code handling file locks has been fixed, and instead of halting, the system now emits a warning about the unreleased lock. (BZ#1172266) * A race condition in the command abort handling logic of the ipr device driver could cause the kernel to panic when the driver received a response to an abort command prior to receiving other responses to the aborted command due to the support for multiple interrupts. With this update, the abort handler waits for the aborted command's responses first before completing an abort operation. (BZ#1162734) * Previously, a race condition could occur when changing a Page Table Entry (PTE) or a Page Middle Directory (PMD) to 'pte_numa' or 'pmd_numa', respectively, causing the kernel to crash. This update removes the BUG_ON() macro from the __handle_mm_fault() function, preventing the kernel panic in the aforementioned scenario.

    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Service Pack 1 LTSS kernel was updated to fix security issues on kernels on the x86_64 architecture. The following security bugs have been fixed : - CVE-2013-4299: Interpretation conflict in drivers/md/dm-snap-persistent.c in the Linux kernel through 3.11.6 allowed remote authenticated users to obtain sensitive information or modify data via a crafted mapping to a snapshot block device (bnc#846404). - CVE-2014-8160: SCTP firewalling failed until the SCTP module was loaded (bnc#913059). - 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). - CVE-2014-9420: The rock_continue function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel through 3.18.1 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 (bnc#911325). - CVE-2014-0181: The Netlink implementation in the Linux kernel through 3.14.1 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-2010-5313: Race condition in arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.38 allowed L2 guest OS users to cause a denial of service (L1 guest OS crash) via a crafted instruction that triggers an L2 emulation failure report, a similar issue to CVE-2014-7842 (bnc#907822). - 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-2014-3688: The SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.17.4 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-2014-3687: The sctp_assoc_lookup_asconf_ack function in net/sctp/associola.c in the SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 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). - CVE-2014-3673: 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). - 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-2014-8709: 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-2013-7263: The Linux kernel before 3.12.4 updated 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#857643). - CVE-2012-6657: The sock_setsockopt function in net/core/sock.c in the Linux kernel before 3.5.7 did not ensure that a keepalive action is associated with a stream socket, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) by leveraging the ability to create a raw socket (bnc#896779). - CVE-2014-3185: 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-2014-3184: 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 (bnc#896390). The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details.

CVE-2014-3181: 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 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. CVE-2014-7826: kernel/trace/trace_syscalls.c in the Linux kernel 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. CVE-2013-7263: The Linux kernel updated 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. This update fixes the leak of the port number when using ipv6 sockets. (bsc#853040). CVE-2014-6410: The __udf_read_inode function in fs/udf/inode.c in the Linux kernel did not restrict the amount of ICB indirection, which allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop or stack consumption) via a UDF filesystem with a crafted inode. CVE-2014-5471: Stack consumption vulnerability in the parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel 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. CVE-2014-5472: The parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (unkillable mount process) via a crafted iso9660 image with a self-referential CL entry. CVE-2014-4508: arch/x86/kernel/entry_32.S in the Linux kernel 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. CVE-2014-4943: The PPPoL2TP feature in net/l2tp/l2tp_ppp.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges by leveraging data-structure differences between an l2tp socket and an inet socket. CVE-2014-5077: The sctp_assoc_update function in net/sctp/associola.c in the Linux kernel, when SCTP authentication is enabled, allowed 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-2014-4171: mm/shmem.c in the Linux kernel did not properly implement the interaction between range notification and hole punching, which allowed 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-2013-2888, CVE-2013-2889, CVE-2013-2890, CVE-2013-2891, CVE-2013-2892, CVE-2013-2893, CVE-2013-2894, CVE-2013-2895, CVE-2013-2896, CVE-2013-2897, CVE-2013-2898, CVE-2013-2899: Multiple issues in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service or system crash via (heap-based out-of-bounds write) via a crafted device. (Not separately listed.) Other bugfixes : - xfs: mark all internal workqueues as freezable (bnc#899785). - target/rd: Refactor rd_build_device_space + rd_release_device_space (bnc#882639) - Enable CONFIG_ATH9K_HTC for armv7hl/omap2plus config (bnc#890624) - swiotlb: don't assume PA 0 is invalid (bnc#865882). - drm/i915: Apply alignment restrictions on scanout surfaces for VT-d (bnc#818561). - tg3: Change nvram command timeout value to 50ms (bnc#768714). - tg3: Override clock, link aware and link idle mode during NVRAM dump (bnc#768714). - tg3: Set the MAC clock to the fastest speed during boot code load (bnc#768714).

    title openSUSE Security Update : the Linux Kernel (openSUSE-SU-2014:1669-1)
  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2015-0285.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix one security issue and three 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. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link 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 SCTP implementation validated INIT chunks when performing Address Configuration Change (ASCONF). A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system by sending a specially crafted SCTP packet to trigger a NULL pointer dereference on the system. (CVE-2014-7841, Important) This issue was discovered by Liu Wei of Red Hat. This update also fixes the following bugs : * Due to several bugs in the network console logging, a race condition between the network console send operation and the driver's IRQ handler could occur, or the network console could access invalid memory content. As a consequence, the respective driver, such as vmxnet3, triggered a BUG_ON() assertion and the system terminated unexpectedly. A patch addressing these bugs has been applied so that driver's IRQs are disabled before processing the send operation and the network console now accesses the RCU-protected (read-copy update) data properly. Systems using the network console logging no longer crashes due to the aforementioned conditions. (BZ#1165983) * A bug in the vmxnet3 driver allowed potential race conditions to be triggered when the driver was used with the netconsole module. The race conditions allowed the driver's internal New API (NAPI) poll routine to run concurrently with the netpoll controller routine, which resulted in data corruption and a subsequent kernel panic. To fix this problem, the vmxnet3 driver has been modified to call the appropriate interrupt handler to schedule NAPI poll requests properly. (BZ#1179594) * Prior to this update, nfs_mark_return_delegation() was called without any locking, resulting in unsafe dereferencing of delegation->inode. Because the inode is only used to discover the nfs_client, the callers now pass a valid pointer to the nfs_server as a parameter. (BZ#1187637) 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.
