ID CVE-2015-8709
Summary ** DISPUTED ** kernel/ptrace.c in the Linux kernel through 4.4.1 mishandles uid and gid mappings, which allows local users to gain privileges by establishing a user namespace, waiting for a root process to enter that namespace with an unsafe uid or gid, and then using the ptrace system call. NOTE: the vendor states "there is no kernel bug here."

CWE CWE-264
CAPEC
  • Accessing, Modifying or Executing Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's configuration that allows an attacker to either directly access an executable file, for example through shell access; or in a possible worst case allows an attacker to upload a file and then execute it. Web servers, ftp servers, and message oriented middleware systems which have many integration points are particularly vulnerable, because both the programmers and the administrators must be in synch regarding the interfaces and the correct privileges for each interface.
  • Leverage Executable Code in Non-Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's trust in configuration and resource files, when the executable loads the resource (such as an image file or configuration file) the attacker has modified the file to either execute malicious code directly or manipulate the target process (e.g. application server) to execute based on the malicious configuration parameters. Since systems are increasingly interrelated mashing up resources from local and remote sources the possibility of this attack occurring is high. The attack can be directed at a client system, such as causing buffer overrun through loading seemingly benign image files, as in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-028 where specially crafted JPEG files could cause a buffer overrun once loaded into the browser. Another example targets clients reading pdf files. In this case the attacker simply appends javascript to the end of a legitimate url for a pdf (http://www.gnucitizen.org/blog/danger-danger-danger/) http://path/to/pdf/file.pdf#whatever_name_you_want=javascript:your_code_here The client assumes that they are reading a pdf, but the attacker has modified the resource and loaded executable javascript into the client's browser process. The attack can also target server processes. The attacker edits the resource or configuration file, for example a web.xml file used to configure security permissions for a J2EE app server, adding role name "public" grants all users with the public role the ability to use the administration functionality. The server trusts its configuration file to be correct, but when they are manipulated, the attacker gains full control.
  • Blue Boxing
    This type of attack against older telephone switches and trunks has been around for decades. A tone is sent by an adversary to impersonate a supervisor signal which has the effect of rerouting or usurping command of the line. While the US infrastructure proper may not contain widespread vulnerabilities to this type of attack, many companies are connected globally through call centers and business process outsourcing. These international systems may be operated in countries which have not upgraded Telco infrastructure and so are vulnerable to Blue boxing. Blue boxing is a result of failure on the part of the system to enforce strong authorization for administrative functions. While the infrastructure is different than standard current applications like web applications, there are historical lessons to be learned to upgrade the access control for administrative functions.
  • Restful Privilege Elevation
    Rest uses standard HTTP (Get, Put, Delete) style permissions methods, but these are not necessarily correlated generally with back end programs. Strict interpretation of HTTP get methods means that these HTTP Get services should not be used to delete information on the server, but there is no access control mechanism to back up this logic. This means that unless the services are properly ACL'd and the application's service implementation are following these guidelines then an HTTP request can easily execute a delete or update on the server side. The attacker identifies a HTTP Get URL such as http://victimsite/updateOrder, which calls out to a program to update orders on a database or other resource. The URL is not idempotent so the request can be submitted multiple times by the attacker, additionally, the attacker may be able to exploit the URL published as a Get method that actually performs updates (instead of merely retrieving data). This may result in malicious or inadvertent altering of data on the server.
  • Target Programs with Elevated Privileges
    This attack targets programs running with elevated privileges. The attacker would try to leverage a bug in the running program and get arbitrary code to execute with elevated privileges. For instance an attacker would look for programs that write to the system directories or registry keys (such as HKLM, which stores a number of critical Windows environment variables). These programs are typically running with elevated privileges and have usually not been designed with security in mind. Such programs are excellent exploit targets because they yield lots of power when they break. The malicious user try to execute its code at the same level as a privileged system call.
  • Manipulating Input to File System Calls
    An attacker manipulates inputs to the target software which the target software passes to file system calls in the OS. The goal is to gain access to, and perhaps modify, areas of the file system that the target software did not intend to be accessible.

    description The openSUSE Leap 42.1 kernel was updated to 4.1.20 to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2015-1339: A memory leak in cuse could be used to exhaust kernel memory. (bsc#969356). - 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 951638). - 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-2015-7884: The vivid_fb_ioctl function in drivers/media/platform/vivid/vivid-osd.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain structure member, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via a crafted application (bnc#951626). - CVE-2015-8104: The KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel 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-2015-8709: kernel/ptrace.c in the Linux kernel mishandled uid and gid mappings, which allowed local users to gain privileges by establishing a user namespace, waiting for a root process to enter that namespace with an unsafe uid or gid, and then using the ptrace system call. NOTE: the vendor states 'there is no kernel bug here (bnc#959709). - 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. (bsc#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-2015-8787: The nf_nat_redirect_ipv4 function in net/netfilter/nf_nat_redirect.c in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by sending certain IPv4 packets to an incompletely configured interface, a related issue to CVE-2003-1604 (bnc#963931). - 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.

    title openSUSE Security Update : the Linux Kernel (openSUSE-2016-445)
  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_SU-2016-0785-1.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 kernel was updated to 3.12.55 to receive various security and bugfixes. Features added : - A improved XEN blkfront module was added, which allows more I/O bandwidth. (FATE#320625) It is called xen-blkfront in PV, and xen-vbd-upstream in HVM mode. 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-2015-5707: Integer overflow in the sg_start_req function in drivers/scsi/sg.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via a large iov_count value in a write request (bnc#940338). - CVE-2015-8709: kernel/ptrace.c in the Linux kernel mishandled uid and gid mappings, which allowed local users to gain privileges by establishing a user namespace, waiting for a root process to enter that namespace with an unsafe uid or gid, and then using the ptrace system call. NOTE: the vendor states 'there is no kernel bug here' (bnc#959709 bnc#960561). - 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 use-after-free flaw was found in the CXGB3 kernel driver when the network was considered to be congested. This could be used by local attackers to cause machine crashes or potentially code executuon (bsc#966437). - 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-2016-0774: A pipe buffer state corruption after unsuccessful atomic read from pipe was fixed (bsc#964730). - CVE-2016-2069: Race conditions in TLB syncing was fixed which could leak to information leaks (bnc#963767). - CVE-2016-2384: A double-free triggered by invalid USB descriptor in ALSA usb-audio was fixed, which could be exploited by physical local attackers to crash the kernel or gain code execution (bnc#966693). 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 SUSE SLED12 / SLES12 Security Update : kernel (SUSE-SU-2016:0785-1)
  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DSA-3434.NASL
    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service or information leak. - CVE-2015-7513 It was discovered that a local user permitted to use the x86 KVM subsystem could configure the PIT emulation to cause a denial of service (crash). - CVE-2015-7550 Dmitry Vyukov discovered a race condition in the keyring subsystem that allows a local user to cause a denial of service (crash). - CVE-2015-8543 It was discovered that a local user permitted to create raw sockets could cause a denial-of-service by specifying an invalid protocol number for the socket. The attacker must have the CAP_NET_RAW capability. - CVE-2015-8550 Felix Wilhelm of ERNW discovered that the Xen PV backend drivers may read critical data from shared memory multiple times. This flaw can be used by a guest kernel to cause a denial of service (crash) on the host, or possibly for privilege escalation. - CVE-2015-8551 / CVE-2015-8552 Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk of Oracle discovered that the Xen PCI backend driver does not adequately validate the device state when a guest configures MSIs. This flaw can be used by a guest kernel to cause a denial of service (crash or disk space exhaustion) on the host. - CVE-2015-8569 Dmitry Vyukov discovered a flaw in the PPTP sockets implementation that leads to an information leak to local users. - CVE-2015-8575 David Miller discovered a flaw in the Bluetooth SCO sockets implementation that leads to an information leak to local users. - CVE-2015-8709 Jann Horn discovered a flaw in the permission checks for use of the ptrace feature. A local user who has the CAP_SYS_PTRACE capability within their own user namespace could use this flaw for privilege escalation if a more privileged process ever enters that user namespace. This affects at least the LXC system. In addition, this update fixes some regressions in the previous update : - #808293 A regression in the UDP implementation prevented freeradius and some other applications from receiving data. - #808602 / #808953 A regression in the USB XHCI driver prevented use of some devices in USB 3 SuperSpeed ports. - #808973 A fix to the radeon driver interacted with an existing bug to cause a crash at boot when using some AMD/ATI graphics cards. This issue only affects wheezy.

    NASL id SUSE_SU-2016-1019-1.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP1 kernel was updated to 3.12.57 to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - 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 a kernel crash in the USB hub driver. (bnc#968010). - CVE-2016-2143: On zSeries a fork of a large process could have caused memory corruption due to incorrect page table handling. (bnc#970504) - CVE-2016-2184: A malicious USB device could cause a kernel crash in the alsa usb-audio driver. (bsc#971125). - CVE-2016-2384: A malicious USB device could cause a kernel crash in the alsa usb-audio driver. (bsc#966693) - CVE-2016-2782: A malicious USB device could cause a kernel crash in the usb visor driver. (bnc#968670). - CVE-2016-3139: A malicious USB device could cause a kernel crash in the wacom driver. (bnc#970909). - CVE-2016-3156: Removal of ipv4 interfaces with a large number of IP addresses was taking very long. (bsc#971360). - CVE-2015-8709: kernel/ptrace.c in the Linux kernel mishandled uid and gid mappings, which allowed local users to gain privileges by establishing a user namespace, waiting for a root process to enter that namespace with an unsafe uid or gid, and then using the ptrace system call. NOTE: the vendor states 'there is no kernel bug here (bnc#960561). 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.

  • NASL family Amazon Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ALA_ALAS-2016-648.NASL
    description The Linux kernel before 4.4.1 allows local users to bypass file-descriptor limits and cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by sending each descriptor over a UNIX socket before closing it, related to net/unix/af_unix.c and net/unix/garbage.c. (CVE-2013-4312) A race condition in the tty_ioctl function in drivers/tty/tty_io.c in the Linux kernel through 4.4.1 was found that allows 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. (CVE-2016-0723) A privilege-escalation vulnerability was discovered in the Linux kernel built with User Namespace (CONFIG_USER_NS) support. The flaw occurred when the ptrace() system call was used on a root-owned process to enter a user namespace. A privileged namespace user could exploit this flaw to potentially escalate their privileges on the system, outside the original namespace. (CVE-2015-8709) net/sctp/sm_sideeffect.c in the Linux kernel before 4.3 does not properly manage the relationship between a lock and a socket, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (deadlock) via a crafted sctp_accept call.
