  • Leveraging Race Conditions
    This attack targets a race condition occurring when multiple processes access and manipulate the same resource concurrently and the outcome of the execution depends on the particular order in which the access takes place. The attacker can leverage a race condition by "running the race", modifying the resource and modifying the normal execution flow. For instance a race condition can occur while accessing a file, the attacker can trick the system by replacing the original file with his version and cause the system to read the malicious file.
  • Leveraging Time-of-Check and Time-of-Use (TOCTOU) Race Conditions
    This attack targets a race condition occurring between the time of check (state) for a resource and the time of use of a resource. The typical example is the file access. The attacker can leverage a file access race condition by "running the race", meaning that he would modify the resource between the first time the target program accesses the file and the time the target program uses the file. During that period of time, the attacker could do something such as replace the file and cause an escalation of privilege.

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.

  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DSA-3396.NASL
    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service. - CVE-2015-5307 Ben Serebrin from Google discovered a guest to host denial of service flaw affecting the KVM hypervisor. A malicious guest can trigger an infinite stream of 'alignment check' (#AC) exceptions causing the processor microcode to enter an infinite loop where the core never receives another interrupt. This leads to a panic of the host kernel. - CVE-2015-7833 Sergej Schumilo, Hendrik Schwartke and Ralf Spenneberg discovered a flaw in the processing of certain USB device descriptors in the usbvision driver. An attacker with physical access to the system can use this flaw to crash the system. - CVE-2015-7872 Dmitry Vyukov discovered a vulnerability in the keyrings garbage collector allowing a local user to trigger a kernel panic. - CVE-2015-7990 It was discovered that the fix for CVE-2015-6937 was incomplete. A race condition when sending a message on unbound socket can still cause a NULL pointer dereference. A remote attacker might be able to cause a denial of service (crash) by sending a crafted packet.

    description This update fixes the CVEs described below. CVE-2013-7446 Dmitry Vyukov discovered that a particular sequence of valid operations on local (AF_UNIX) sockets can result in a use-after-free. This may be used to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly for privilege escalation. CVE-2015-7799 郭永刚 discovered that a user granted access to /dev/ppp can cause a denial of service (crash) by passing invalid parameters to the PPPIOCSMAXCID ioctl. This also applies to ISDN PPP device nodes. CVE-2015-7833 Sergej Schumilo, Hendrik Schwartke and Ralf Spenneberg discovered a flaw in the processing of certain USB device descriptors in the usbvision driver. An attacker with physical access to the system can use this flaw to crash the system. CVE-2015-7990 It was discovered that the fix for CVE-2015-6937 was incomplete. A race condition when sending a message on unbound socket can still cause a NULL pointer dereference. A remote attacker might be able to cause a denial of service (crash) by sending a crafted packet. CVE-2015-8324 'Valintinr' reported that an attempt to mount a corrupted ext4 filesystem may result in a kernel panic. A user permitted to mount filesystems could use this flaw to crash the system. For the oldoldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 2.6.32-48squeeze17. We recommend that you upgrade your linux-2.6 packages. For the oldstable (wheezy) and stable (jessie) distributions, CVE-2015-7833, CVE-2015-7990 and CVE-2015-8324 have been fixed and the other issues will be fixed soon.

    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP1 kernel was updated to 3.12.51 to receive various security and bugfixes. Following features were added : - hwrng: Add a driver for the hwrng found in power7+ systems (fate#315784). Following security bugs were fixed : - 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. (bsc#955354) - CVE-2015-5156: The virtnet_probe function in drivers/net/virtio_net.c in the Linux kernel attempted to support a FRAGLIST feature without proper memory allocation, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow and memory corruption) via a crafted sequence of fragmented packets (bnc#940776). - CVE-2015-7872: The key_gc_unused_keys function in security/keys/gc.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) via crafted keyctl commands (bnc#951440). - 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-2015-2925: The prepend_path function in fs/dcache.c in the Linux kernel did not properly handle rename actions inside a bind mount, which allowed local users to bypass an intended container protection mechanism by renaming a directory, related to a 'double-chroot attack (bnc#926238). - CVE-2015-7990: RDS: Verify the underlying transport exists before creating a connection, preventing possible DoS (bsc#952384). The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details.
