    description The openSUSE 13.1 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. Following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2016-0728: A reference leak in keyring handling with join_session_keyring() could lead to local attackers gain root privileges. (bsc#962075). - CVE-2015-7550: A local user could have triggered a race between read and revoke in keyctl (bnc#958951). - CVE-2015-8569: The (1) pptp_bind and (2) pptp_connect functions in drivers/net/ppp/pptp.c in the Linux kernel did not verify an address length, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory and bypass the KASLR protection mechanism via a crafted application (bnc#959190). - CVE-2015-8543: The networking implementation in the Linux kernel did not validate protocol identifiers for certain protocol families, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL function pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly gain privileges by leveraging CLONE_NEWUSER support to execute a crafted SOCK_RAW application (bnc#958886). - CVE-2014-8989: The Linux kernel did not properly restrict dropping of supplemental group memberships in certain namespace scenarios, which allowed local users to bypass intended file permissions by leveraging a POSIX ACL containing an entry for the group category that is more restrictive than the entry for the other category, aka a 'negative groups' issue, related to kernel/groups.c, kernel/uid16.c, and kernel/user_namespace.c (bnc#906545). - CVE-2015-5157: arch/x86/entry/entry_64.S in the Linux kernel on the x86_64 platform mishandles IRET faults in processing NMIs that occurred during userspace execution, which might allow local users to gain privileges by triggering an NMI (bnc#937969). - CVE-2015-7799: The slhc_init function in drivers/net/slip/slhc.c in the Linux kernel through 4.2.3 did not ensure that certain slot numbers are valid, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a crafted PPPIOCSMAXCID ioctl call (bnc#949936). - CVE-2015-8104: The KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 4.2.6, and Xen 4.3.x through 4.6.x, allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS panic or hang) by triggering many #DB (aka Debug) exceptions, related to svm.c (bnc#954404). - CVE-2015-5307: The KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 4.2.6, and Xen 4.3.x through 4.6.x, allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS panic or hang) by triggering many #AC (aka Alignment Check) exceptions, related to svm.c and vmx.c (bnc#953527). - CVE-2014-9529: Race condition in the key_gc_unused_keys function in security/keys/gc.c in the Linux kernel allowed 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 (bnc#912202). - CVE-2015-7990: Race condition in the rds_sendmsg function in net/rds/sendmsg.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by using a socket that was not properly bound. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2015-6937 (bnc#952384 953052). - CVE-2015-6937: The __rds_conn_create function in net/rds/connection.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by using a socket that was not properly bound (bnc#945825). - CVE-2015-7885: The dgnc_mgmt_ioctl function in drivers/staging/dgnc/dgnc_mgmt.c in the Linux kernel through 4.3.3 did not initialize a certain structure member, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via a crafted application (bnc#951627). - CVE-2015-8215: net/ipv6/addrconf.c in the IPv6 stack in the Linux kernel did not validate attempted changes to the MTU value, which allowed context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (packet loss) via a value that is (1) smaller than the minimum compliant value or (2) larger than the MTU of an interface, as demonstrated by a Router Advertisement (RA) message that is not validated by a daemon, a different vulnerability than CVE-2015-0272. NOTE: the scope of CVE-2015-0272 is limited to the NetworkManager product (bnc#955354). - CVE-2015-8767: A case can occur when sctp_accept() is called by the user during a heartbeat timeout event after the 4-way handshake. Since sctp_assoc_migrate() changes both assoc->base.sk and assoc->ep, the bh_sock_lock in sctp_generate_heartbeat_event() will be taken with the listening socket but released with the new association socket. The result is a deadlock on any future attempts to take the listening socket lock. (bsc#961509) - CVE-2015-8575: Validate socket address length in sco_sock_bind() to prevent information leak (bsc#959399). - CVE-2015-8551, CVE-2015-8552: xen/pciback: For XEN_PCI_OP_disable_msi[|x] only disable if device has MSI(X) enabled (bsc#957990). - CVE-2015-8550: Compiler optimizations in the XEN PV backend drivers could have lead to double fetch vulnerabilities, causing denial of service or arbitrary code execution (depending on the configuration) (bsc#957988). The following non-security bugs were fixed : - ALSA: hda - Disable 64bit address for Creative HDA controllers (bnc#814440). - ALSA: hda - Fix noise problems on Thinkpad T440s (boo#958504). - Input: aiptek - fix crash on detecting device without endpoints (bnc#956708). - KEYS: Make /proc/keys unconditional if CONFIG_KEYS=y (boo#956934). - KVM: x86: update masterclock values on TSC writes (bsc#961739). - NFS: Fix a NULL pointer dereference of migration recovery ops for v4.2 client (bsc#960839). - apparmor: allow SYS_CAP_RESOURCE to be sufficient to prlimit another task (bsc#921949). - blktap: also call blkif_disconnect() when frontend switched to closed (bsc#952976). - blktap: refine mm tracking (bsc#952976). - cdrom: Random writing support for BD-RE media (bnc#959568). - genksyms: Handle string literals with spaces in reference files (bsc#958510). - ipv4: Do not increase PMTU with Datagram Too Big message (bsc#955224). - ipv6: distinguish frag queues by device for multicast and link-local packets (bsc#955422). - ipv6: fix tunnel error handling (bsc#952579). - route: Use ipv4_mtu instead of raw rt_pmtu (bsc#955224). - uas: Add response iu handling (bnc#954138). - usbvision fix overflow of interfaces array (bnc#950998). - x86/evtchn: make use of PHYSDEVOP_map_pirq. - xen/pciback: Do not allow MSI-X ops if PCI_COMMAND_MEMORY is not set (bsc#957990 XSA-157).

    title openSUSE Security Update : the Linux Kernel (openSUSE-2016-124)
  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id OPENSUSE-2015-543.NASL
    description The openSUSE 13.2 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. Following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2015-3290: A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernels nested NMI handler and espfix64 functionalities interacted during NMI processing. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. - CVE-2015-3212: A race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernels SCTP implementation handled Address Configuration lists when performing Address Configuration Change (ASCONF). A local attacker could use this flaw to crash the system via a race condition triggered by setting certain ASCONF options on a socket. - CVE-2015-5364: A remote denial of service (hang) via UDP flood with incorrect package checksums was fixed. (bsc#936831). - CVE-2015-5366: A remote denial of service (unexpected error returns) via UDP flood with incorrect package checksums was fixed. (bsc#936831). - CVE-2015-4700: A local user could have created a bad instruction in the JIT processed BPF code, leading to a kernel crash (bnc#935705). - CVE-2015-1420: Race condition in the handle_to_path function in fs/fhandle.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to bypass intended size restrictions and trigger read operations on additional memory locations by changing the handle_bytes value of a file handle during the execution of this function (bnc#915517). - CVE-2015-4692: The kvm_apic_has_events function in arch/x86/kvm/lapic.h in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging /dev/kvm access for an ioctl call (bnc#935542). - CVE-2015-4167 CVE-2014-9728 CVE-2014-9730 CVE-2014-9729 CVE-2014-9731: Various problems in the UDF filesystem were fixed that could lead to crashes when mounting prepared udf filesystems. - CVE-2015-4002: drivers/staging/ozwpan/ozusbsvc1.c in the OZWPAN driver in the Linux kernel did not ensure that certain length values are sufficiently large, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash or large loop) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted packet, related to the (1) oz_usb_rx and (2) oz_usb_handle_ep_data functions (bnc#933934). - CVE-2015-4003: The oz_usb_handle_ep_data function in drivers/staging/ozwpan/ozusbsvc1.c in the OZWPAN driver in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (divide-by-zero error and system crash) via a crafted packet (bnc#933934). - CVE-2015-4001: Integer signedness error in the oz_hcd_get_desc_cnf function in drivers/staging/ozwpan/ozhcd.c in the OZWPAN driver in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted packet (bnc#933934). - CVE-2015-4036: A potential memory corruption in vhost/scsi was fixed. - CVE-2015-2922: The ndisc_router_discovery function in net/ipv6/ndisc.c in the Neighbor Discovery (ND) protocol implementation in the IPv6 stack in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to reconfigure a hop-limit setting via a small hop_limit value in a Router Advertisement (RA) message (bnc#922583). - CVE-2015-3636: It was found that the Linux kernels ping socket implementation did not properly handle socket unhashing during spurious disconnects, which could lead to a use-after-free flaw. On x86-64 architecture systems, a local user able to create ping sockets could use this flaw to crash the system. On non-x86-64 architecture systems, a local user able to create ping sockets could use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system. - CVE-2015-2041: net/llc/sysctl_net_llc.c in the Linux kernel used an incorrect data type in a sysctl table, which allowed local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory or possibly have unspecified other impact by accessing a sysctl entry (bnc#919007). - CVE-2015-3339: Race condition in the prepare_binprm function in fs/exec.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges by executing a setuid program at a time instant when a chown to root is in progress, and the ownership is changed but the setuid bit is not yet stripped. - CVE-2015-1465: The IPv4 implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly consider the length of the Read-Copy Update (RCU) grace period for redirecting lookups in the absence of caching, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption or system crash) via a flood of packets (bnc#916225).

    title openSUSE Security Update : the Linux Kernel (openSUSE-2015-543)
  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DLA-246.NASL
    description The linux-2.6 update issued as DLA-246-1 caused regressions. This update corrects the defective patches applied in that update causing these problems. For reference the original advisory text follows. This update fixes the CVEs described below. CVE-2011-5321 Jiri Slaby discovered that tty_driver_lookup_tty() may leak a reference to the tty driver. A local user could use this flaw to crash the system. CVE-2012-6689 Pablo Neira Ayuso discovered that non-root user-space processes can send forged Netlink notifications to other processes. A local user could use this flaw for denial of service or privilege escalation. CVE-2014-3184 Ben Hawkes discovered that various HID drivers may over-read the report descriptor buffer, possibly resulting in a crash if a HID with a crafted descriptor is plugged in. CVE-2014-8159 It was found that the Linux kernel's InfiniBand/RDMA 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-2014-9683 Dmitry Chernenkov discovered that eCryptfs writes past the end of the allocated buffer during encrypted filename decoding, resulting in local denial of service. CVE-2014-9728 / CVE-2014-9729 / CVE-2014-9730 / CVE-2014-9731 / CVE-2015-4167 Carl Henrik Lunde discovered that the UDF implementation is missing several necessary length checks. A local user that can mount devices could use these various flaws to crash the system, to leak information from the kernel, or possibly for privilege escalation. CVE-2015-1805 Red Hat discovered that the pipe iovec read and write implementations may iterate over the iovec twice but will modify the iovec such that the second iteration accesses the wrong memory. A local user could use this flaw to crash the system or possibly for privilege escalation. This may also result in data corruption and information leaks in pipes between non-malicious processes. CVE-2015-2041 Sasha Levin discovered that the LLC subsystem exposed some variables as sysctls with the wrong type. On a 64-bit kernel, this possibly allows privilege escalation from a process with CAP_NET_ADMIN capability; it also results in a trivial information leak. CVE-2015-2042 Sasha Levin discovered that the RDS subsystem exposed some variables as sysctls with the wrong type. On a 64-bit kernel, this results in a trivial information leak. CVE-2015-2830 Andrew Lutomirski discovered that when a 64-bit task on an amd64 kernel makes a fork(2) or clone(2) system call using int $0x80, the 32-bit compatibility flag is set (correctly) but is not cleared on return. As a result, both seccomp and audit will misinterpret the following system call by the task(s), possibly leading to a violation of security policy. CVE-2015-2922 Modio AB discovered that the IPv6 subsystem would process a router advertisement that specifies no route bu
