  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DSA-3503.NASL
    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service, information leak or data loss. - CVE-2013-4312, CVE-2016-2847 Tetsuo Handa discovered that users can use pipes queued on local (Unix) sockets to allocate an unfair share of kernel memory, leading to denial-of-service (resource exhaustion). This issue was previously mitigated for the stable suite by limiting the total number of files queued by each user on local sockets. The new kernel version in both suites includes that mitigation plus limits on the total size of pipe buffers allocated for each user. - CVE-2015-7566 Ralf Spenneberg of OpenSource Security reported that the visor driver crashes when a specially crafted USB device without bulk-out endpoint is detected. - CVE-2015-8767 An SCTP denial-of-service was discovered which can be triggered by a local attacker during a heartbeat timeout event after the 4-way handshake. - CVE-2015-8785 It was discovered that local users permitted to write to a file on a FUSE filesystem could cause a denial of service (unkillable loop in the kernel). - CVE-2015-8812 A flaw was found in the iw_cxgb3 Infiniband driver. Whenever it could not send a packet because the network was congested, it would free the packet buffer but later attempt to send the packet again. This use-after-free could result in a denial of service (crash or hang), data loss or privilege escalation. - CVE-2015-8816 A use-after-free vulnerability was discovered in the USB hub driver. This may be used by a physically present user for privilege escalation. - CVE-2015-8830 Ben Hawkes of Google Project Zero reported that the AIO interface permitted reading or writing 2 GiB of data or more in a single chunk, which could lead to an integer overflow when applied to certain filesystems, socket or device types. The full security impact has not been evaluated. - CVE-2016-0723 A use-after-free vulnerability was discovered in the TIOCGETD ioctl. A local attacker could use this flaw for denial-of-service. - CVE-2016-0774 It was found that the fix for CVE-2015-1805 in kernel versions older than Linux 3.16 did not correctly handle the case of a partially failed atomic read. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system or leak kernel memory to user space. - CVE-2016-2069 Andy Lutomirski discovered a race condition in flushing of the TLB when switching tasks on an x86 system. On an SMP system this could possibly lead to a crash, information leak or privilege escalation. - CVE-2016-2384 Andrey Konovalov found that a crafted USB MIDI device with an invalid USB descriptor could trigger a double-free. This may be used by a physically present user for privilege escalation. - CVE-2016-2543 Dmitry Vyukov found that the core sound sequencer driver (snd-seq) lacked a necessary check for a NULL pointer, allowing a user with access to a sound sequencer device to cause a denial-of service (crash). - CVE-2016-2544, CVE-2016-2546, CVE-2016-2547, CVE-2016-2548 Dmitry Vyukov found various race conditions in the sound subsystem (ALSA)'s management of timers. A user with access to sound devices could use these to cause a denial-of-service (crash or hang) or possibly for privilege escalation. - CVE-2016-2545 Dmitry Vyukov found a flaw in list manipulation in the sound subsystem (ALSA)'s management of timers. A user with access to sound devices could use this to cause a denial-of-service (crash or hang) or possibly for privilege escalation. - CVE-2016-2549 Dmitry Vyukov found a potential deadlock in the sound subsystem (ALSA)'s use of high resolution timers. A user with access to sound devices could use this to cause a denial-of-service (hang). - CVE-2016-2550 The original mitigation of CVE-2013-4312, limiting the total number of files a user could queue on local sockets, was flawed. A user given a local socket opened by another user, for example through the systemd socket activation mechanism, could make use of the other user's quota, again leading to a denial-of-service (resource exhaustion). This is fixed by accounting queued files to the sender rather than the socket opener.

    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP3 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2013-7446: Use-after-free vulnerability in net/unix/af_unix.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to bypass intended AF_UNIX socket permissions or cause a denial of service (panic) via crafted epoll_ctl calls (bnc#955654). - CVE-2015-7509: fs/ext4/namei.c in the Linux kernel allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a crafted no-journal filesystem, a related issue to CVE-2013-2015 (bnc#956707). - CVE-2015-7515: An out of bounds memory access in the aiptek USB driver could be used by physical local attackers to crash the kernel (bnc#956708). - CVE-2015-7550: The keyctl_read_key function in security/keys/keyctl.c in the Linux kernel did not properly use a semaphore, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted application that leverages a race condition between keyctl_revoke and keyctl_read calls (bnc#958951). - CVE-2015-7566: A malicious USB device could cause kernel crashes in the visor device driver (bnc#961512). - CVE-2015-7799: The slhc_init function in drivers/net/slip/slhc.c in the Linux kernel 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-2015-8215: 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-2015-8539: The KEYS subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (BUG) via crafted keyctl commands that negatively instantiate a key, related to security/keys/encrypted-keys/encrypted.c, security/keys/trusted.c, and security/keys/user_defined.c (bnc#958463). - 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-2015-8550: Optimizations introduced by the compiler could have lead to double fetch vulnerabilities, potentially possibly leading to arbitrary code execution in backend (bsc#957988). (bsc#957988 XSA-155). - CVE-2015-8551: The PCI backend driver in Xen, when running on an x86 system and using Linux as the driver domain, allowed local guest administrators to hit BUG conditions and cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and host OS crash) by leveraging a system with access to a passed-through MSI or MSI-X capable physical PCI device and a crafted sequence of XEN_PCI_OP_* operations, aka 'Linux pciback missing sanity checks (bnc#957990). - CVE-2015-8552: The PCI backend driver in Xen, when running on an x86 system and using Linux as the driver domain, allowed local guest administrators to generate a continuous stream of WARN messages and cause a denial of service (disk consumption) by leveraging a system with access to a passed-through MSI or MSI-X capable physical PCI device and XEN_PCI_OP_enable_msi operations, aka 'Linux pciback missing sanity checks (bnc#957990). - CVE-2015-8569: The (1) pptp_bind and (2) pptp_connect functions in drivers/net/ppp/pptp.c in the Linux kernel do 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-2015-8575: The sco_sock_bind function in net/bluetooth/sco.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#959399). - CVE-2015-8767: net/sctp/sm_sideeffect.c in the Linux kernel did not properly manage the relationship between a lock and a socket, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (deadlock) via a crafted sctp_accept call (bnc#961509). - CVE-2015-8785: The fuse_fill_write_pages function in fs/fuse/file.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a writev system call that triggers a zero length for the first segment of an iov (bnc#963765). - CVE-2015-8812: A flaw was found in the CXGB3 kernel driver when the network was considered congested. The kernel would incorrectly misinterpret the congestion as an error condition and incorrectly free/clean up the skb. When the device would then send the skb's queued, these structures would be referenced and may panic the system or allow an attacker to escalate privileges in a use-after-free scenario.(bsc#966437). - CVE-2015-8816: A malicious USB device could cause kernel crashes in the in hub_activate() function (bnc#968010). - CVE-2016-0723: Race condition in the tty_ioctl function in drivers/tty/tty_io.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory or cause a denial of service (use-after-free and system crash) by making a TIOCGETD ioctl call during processing of a TIOCSETD ioctl call (bnc#961500). - CVE-2016-2069: A race in invalidating paging structures that were not in use locally could have lead to disclosoure of information or arbitrary code exectution (bnc#963767). - CVE-2016-2143: On zSeries a fork of a large process could have caused memory corruption due to incorrect page table handling. (bnc#970504, LTC#138810). - CVE-2016-2184: A malicious USB device could cause kernel crashes in the alsa usb-audio device driver (bsc#971125). - CVE-2016-2185: A malicious USB device could cause kernel crashes in the usb_driver_claim_interface function (bnc#971124). - CVE-2016-2186: A malicious USB device could cause kernel crashes in the powermate device driver (bnc#970958). - CVE-2016-2384: A double free on the ALSA umidi object was fixed.

    title SUSE SLES11 Security Update : kernel (SUSE-SU-2016:1203-1)
  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DLA-412.NASL
    description This update fixes the CVEs described below. CVE-2015-7566 Ralf Spenneberg of OpenSource Security reported that the visor driver crashes when a specially crafted USB device without bulk-out endpoint is detected. CVE-2015-8767 An SCTP denial of service was discovered which can be triggered by a local attacker during a heartbeat timeout event after the 4-way handshake. CVE-2015-8785 It was discovered that local users permitted to write to a file on a FUSE filesystem could cause a denial of service (unkillable loop in the kernel). CVE-2016-0723 A use-after-free vulnerability was discovered in the TIOCGETD ioctl. A local attacker could use this flaw for denial of service. CVE-2016-2069 Andy Lutomirski discovered a race condition in flushing of the TLB when switching tasks. On an SMP system this could possibly lead to a crash, information leak or privilege escalation. For the oldoldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 2.6.32-48squeeze19. Additionally, this version includes upstream stable update 2.6.32.70. This is the final update to the linux-2.6 package for squeeze. For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems will be fixed soon. For the stable distribution (jessie), CVE-2015-7566, CVE-2015-8767 and CVE-2016-0723 were fixed in linux version 3.16.7-ckt20-1+deb8u3 and the remaining problems will be fixed soon. NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
