ID CVE-2016-3672
Summary The arch_pick_mmap_layout function in arch/x86/mm/mmap.c in the Linux kernel through 4.5.2 does not properly randomize the legacy base address, which makes it easier for local users to defeat the intended restrictions on the ADDR_NO_RANDOMIZE flag, and bypass the ASLR protection mechanism for a setuid or setgid program, by disabling stack-consumption resource limits.

    description The openSUSE Leap 42.1 kernel was updated to 4.1.26 to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2016-1583: Prevent the usage of mmap when the lower file system does not allow it. This could have lead to local privilege escalation when ecryptfs-utils was installed and /sbin/mount.ecryptfs_private was setuid (bsc#983143). - CVE-2016-4565: The InfiniBand (aka IB) stack in the Linux kernel incorrectly relies on the write system call, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (kernel memory write operation) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a uAPI interface. (bsc#979548) - CVE-2016-4805: Use-after-free vulnerability in drivers/net/ppp/ppp_generic.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash, or spinlock) or possibly have unspecified other impact by removing a network namespace, related to the ppp_register_net_channel and ppp_unregister_channel functions. (bsc#980371). - CVE-2016-4951: The tipc_nl_publ_dump function in net/tipc/socket.c in the Linux kernel did not verify socket existence, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a dumpit operation. (bsc#981058). - CVE-2016-5244: An information leak vulnerability in function rds_inc_info_copy of file net/rds/recv.c was fixed that might have leaked kernel stack data. (bsc#983213). - CVE-2016-4580: The x25_negotiate_facilities function in net/x25/x25_facilities.c in the Linux kernel did not properly initialize a certain data structure, which allowed attackers to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via an X.25 Call Request. (bsc#981267). - CVE-2016-0758: Tags with indefinite length could have corrupted pointers in asn1_find_indefinite_length (bsc#979867). - CVE-2016-2053: The asn1_ber_decoder function in lib/asn1_decoder.c in the Linux kernel allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via an ASN.1 BER file that lacks a public key, leading to mishandling by the public_key_verify_signature function in crypto/asymmetric_keys/public_key.c (bnc#963762). - 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-2016-3134: The netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did not validate certain offset fields, which allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via an IPT_SO_SET_REPLACE setsockopt call (bnc#971126). - CVE-2016-3672: The arch_pick_mmap_layout function in arch/x86/mm/mmap.c in the Linux kernel did not properly randomize the legacy base address, which made it easier for local users to defeat the intended restrictions on the ADDR_NO_RANDOMIZE flag, and bypass the ASLR protection mechanism for a setuid or setgid program, by disabling stack-consumption resource limits (bnc#974308). - CVE-2016-4482: A kernel information leak in the usbfs devio connectinfo was fixed, which could expose kernel stack memory to userspace. (bnc#978401). - CVE-2016-4485: A kernel information leak in llc was fixed (bsc#978821). - CVE-2016-4486: A kernel information leak in rtnetlink was fixed, where 4 uninitialized bytes could leak to userspace (bsc#978822). - CVE-2016-4557: A use-after-free via double-fdput in replace_map_fd_with_map_ptr() was fixed, which could allow privilege escalation (bsc#979018). - CVE-2016-4565: When the 'rdma_ucm' infiniband module is loaded, local attackers could escalate their privileges (bsc#979548). - CVE-2016-4569: A kernel information leak in the ALSA timer via events via snd_timer_user_tinterrupt that could leak information to userspace was fixed (bsc#979213). - CVE-2016-4578: A kernel information leak in the ALSA timer via events that could leak information to userspace was fixed (bsc#979879). - CVE-2016-4581: If the first propogated mount copy was being a slave it could oops the kernel (bsc#979913) The following non-security bugs were fixed : - ALSA: hda - Add dock support for ThinkPad X260 (boo#979278). - ALSA: hda - Apply fix for white noise on Asus N550JV, too (boo#979278). - ALSA: hda - Asus N750JV external subwoofer fixup (boo#979278). - ALSA: hda - Fix broken reconfig (boo#979278). - ALSA: hda - Fix headphone mic input on a few Dell ALC293 machines (boo#979278). - ALSA: hda - Fix subwoofer pin on ASUS N751 and N551 (boo#979278). - ALSA: hda - Fix white noise on Asus N750JV headphone (boo#979278). - ALSA: hda - Fix white noise on Asus UX501VW headset (boo#979278). - ALSA: hda/realtek - Add ALC3234 headset mode for Optiplex 9020m (boo#979278). - ALSA: hda/realtek - New codecs support for ALC234/ALC274/ALC294 (boo#979278). - ALSA: hda/realtek - New codec support of ALC225 (boo#979278). - ALSA: hda/realtek - Support headset mode for ALC225 (boo#979278). - ALSA: pcxhr: Fix missing mutex unlock (boo#979278). - ALSA: usb-audio: Quirk for yet another Phoenix Audio devices (v2) (boo#979278). - bluetooth: fix power_on vs close race (bsc#966849). - bluetooth: vhci: fix open_timeout vs. hdev race (bsc#971799,bsc#966849). - bluetooth: vhci: Fix race at creating hci device (bsc#971799,bsc#966849). - bluetooth: vhci: purge unhandled skbs (bsc#971799,bsc#966849). - btrfs: do not use src fd for printk (bsc#980348). - btrfs: fix crash/invalid memory access on fsync when using overlayfs (bsc#977198) - drm: qxl: Workaround for buggy user-space (bsc#981344). - enic: set netdev->vlan_features (bsc#966245). - fs: add file_dentry() (bsc#977198). - IB/IPoIB: Do not set skb truesize since using one linearskb (bsc#980657). - input: i8042 - lower log level for 'no controller' message (bsc#945345). - kabi: Add kabi/severities entries to ignore sound/hda/*, x509_*, efivar_validate, file_open_root and dax_fault - kabi: Add some fixups (module, pci_dev, drm, fuse and thermal) - kabi: file_dentry changes (bsc#977198). - kABI fixes for 4.1.22 - mm/page_alloc.c: calculate 'available' memory in a separate function (bsc#982239). - net: disable fragment reassembly if high_thresh is zero (bsc#970506). - of: iommu: Silence misleading warning. - pstore_register() error handling was wrong -- it tried to release lock before it's acquired, causing spinlock / preemption imbalance. - usb: quirk to stop runtime PM for Intel 7260 (bnc#984460). - Revert 'usb: hub: do not clear BOS field during reset device' (boo#979728). - usb: core: hub: hub_port_init lock controller instead of bus (bnc#978073). - usb: preserve kABI in address0 locking (bnc#978073). - usb: usbip: fix potential out-of-bounds write (bnc#975945). - USB: xhci: Add broken streams quirk for Frescologic device id 1009 (bnc#982712). - virtio_balloon: do not change memory amount visible via /proc/meminfo (bsc#982238). - virtio_balloon: export 'available' memory to balloon statistics (bsc#982239).

    description This update fixes the CVEs described below. CVE-2016-0821 Solar Designer noted that the list 'poisoning' feature, intended to mitigate the effects of bugs in list manipulation in the kernel, used poison values within the range of virtual addresses that can be allocated by user processes. CVE-2016-1583 Jann Horn of Google Project Zero reported that the eCryptfs filesystem could be used together with the proc filesystem to cause a kernel stack overflow. If the ecryptfs-utils package was installed, local users could exploit this, via the mount.ecryptfs_private program, for denial of service (crash) or possibly for privilege escalation. CVE-2016-2184, CVE-2016-2185, CVE-2016-2186, CVE-2016-2187, CVE-2016-3136, CVE-2016-3137, CVE-2016-3138, CVE-2016-3140 Ralf Spenneberg of OpenSource Security reported that various USB drivers do not sufficiently validate USB descriptors. This allowed a physically present user with a specially designed USB device to cause a denial of service (crash). Not all the drivers have yet been fixed. CVE-2016-3134 The Google Project Zero team found that the netfilter subsystem does not sufficiently validate filter table entries. A user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could use this for denial of service (crash) or possibly for privilege escalation. CVE-2016-3157 / XSA-171 Andy Lutomirski discovered that the x86_64 (amd64) task switching implementation did not correctly update the I/O permission level when running as a Xen paravirtual (PV) guest. In some configurations this would allow local users to cause a denial of service (crash) or to escalate their privileges within the guest. CVE-2016-3672 Hector Marco and Ismael Ripoll noted that it was still possible to disable Address Space Layout Randomisation (ASLR) for x86_32 (i386) programs by removing the stack resource limit. This made it easier for local users to exploit security flaws in programs that have the setuid or setgid flag set. CVE-2016-3951 It was discovered that the cdc_ncm driver would free memory prematurely if certain errors occurred during its initialisation. This allowed a physically present user with a specially designed USB device to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly to escalate their privileges. CVE-2016-3955 Ignat Korchagin reported that the usbip subsystem did not check the length of data received for a USB buffer. This allowed denial of service (crash) or privilege escalation on a system configured as a usbip client, by the usbip server or by an attacker able to impersonate it over the network. A system configured as a usbip server might be similarly vulnerable to physically present users. CVE-2016-3961 / XSA-174 Vitaly Kuznetsov of Red Hat discovered that Linux allowed use of hugetlbfs on x86 (i386 and amd64) systems even when running as a Xen paravirtualised (PV) guest, although Xen does not support huge pages. This allowed users with access to /dev/hugepages to cause a denial of service (crash) in the guest. CVE-2016-4482, CVE-2016-4485, CVE-2016-4486, CVE-2016-4569, CVE-2016-4578, CVE-2016-4580, CVE-2016-5243, CVE-2016-5244 Kangjie Lu reported that the USB devio, llc, rtnetlink, ALSA timer, x25, tipc, and rds facilities leaked information from the kernel stack. CVE-2016-4565 Jann Horn of Google Project Zero reported that various components in the InfiniBand stack implemented unusual semantics for the write() operation. On a system with InfiniBand drivers loaded, local users could use this for denial of service or privilege escalation. CVE-2016-4913 Al Viro found that the ISO9660 filesystem implementation did not correctly count the length of certain invalid name entries. Reading a directory containing such name entries would leak information from kernel memory. Users permitted to mount disks or disk images could use this to obtain sensitive information. For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 3.2.81-1. This update also fixes bug #627782, which caused data corruption in some applications running on an aufs filesystem, and includes many other bug fixes from upstream stable updates 3.2.79, 3.2.80 and 3.2.81. For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems will be fixed soon. We recommend that you upgrade your linux packages. 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.

    description The openSUSE 13.1 kernel was updated to 3.12.62 to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2014-9904: The snd_compress_check_input function in sound/core/compress_offload.c in the ALSA subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly check for an integer overflow, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (insufficient memory allocation) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted SNDRV_COMPRESS_SET_PARAMS ioctl call (bnc#986811). - CVE-2015-7833: The usbvision driver in the Linux kernel allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via a nonzero bInterfaceNumber value in a USB device descriptor (bnc#950998). - CVE-2015-8551: The PCI backend driver in Xen, when running on an x86 system and using Linux 3.1.x through 4.3.x 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 3.1.x through 4.3.x 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-2015-8845: The tm_reclaim_thread function in arch/powerpc/kernel/process.c in the Linux kernel on powerpc platforms did not ensure that TM suspend mode exists before proceeding with a tm_reclaim call, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (TM Bad Thing exception and panic) via a crafted application (bnc#975531 bsc#975533). - CVE-2016-0758: Integer overflow in lib/asn1_decoder.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges via crafted ASN.1 data (bnc#979867). - CVE-2016-1583: The ecryptfs_privileged_open function in fs/ecryptfs/kthread.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (stack memory consumption) via vectors involving crafted mmap calls for /proc pathnames, leading to recursive pagefault handling. (bsc#983143) - CVE-2016-2053: The asn1_ber_decoder function in lib/asn1_decoder.c in the Linux kernel allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via an ASN.1 BER file that lacks a public key, leading to mishandling by the public_key_verify_signature function in crypto/asymmetric_keys/public_key.c (bnc#963762). - CVE-2016-3672: The arch_pick_mmap_layout function in arch/x86/mm/mmap.c in the Linux kernel did not properly randomize the legacy base address, which made it easier for local users to defeat the intended restrictions on the ADDR_NO_RANDOMIZE flag, and bypass the ASLR protection mechanism for a setuid or setgid program, by disabling stack-consumption resource limits (bnc#974308). - CVE-2016-4470: The key_reject_and_link function in security/keys/key.c in the Linux kernel did not ensure that a certain data structure is initialized, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via vectors involving a crafted keyctl request2 command (bnc#984755). - CVE-2016-4482: The proc_connectinfo function in drivers/usb/core/devio.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain data structure, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted USBDEVFS_CONNECTINFO ioctl call. (bnc#978401) - CVE-2016-4486: The rtnl_fill_link_ifmap function in net/core/rtnetlink.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain data structure, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory by reading a Netlink message (bnc#978822). - CVE-2016-4565: The InfiniBand (aka IB) stack in the Linux kernel incorrectly relies on the write system call, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (kernel memory write operation) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a uAPI interface (bnc#979548 bsc#980363). - CVE-2016-4569: The snd_timer_user_params function in sound/core/timer.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain data structure, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via crafted use of the ALSA timer interface. (bsc#979213) - CVE-2016-4578: sound/core/timer.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize certain r1 data structures, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via crafted use of the ALSA timer interface, related to the (1) snd_timer_user_ccallback and (2) snd_timer_user_tinterrupt functions (bnc#979879). - CVE-2016-4805: Use-after-free vulnerability in drivers/net/ppp/ppp_generic.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash, or spinlock) or possibly have unspecified other impact by removing a network namespace, related to the ppp_register_net_channel and ppp_unregister_channel functions (bnc#980371). - CVE-2016-4997: The compat IPT_SO_SET_REPLACE setsockopt implementation in the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (memory corruption) by leveraging in-container root access to provide a crafted offset value that triggers an unintended decrement (bnc#986362). - CVE-2016-4998: The IPT_SO_SET_REPLACE setsockopt implementation in the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel before 4.6 allows local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) or possibly obtain sensitive information from kernel heap memory by leveraging in-container root access to provide a crafted offset value that leads to crossing a ruleset blob boundary. (bnc#986365). - CVE-2016-5244: The rds_inc_info_copy function in net/rds/recv.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain structure member, which allowed remote attackers to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory by reading an RDS message (bnc#983213). - CVE-2016-5828: The start_thread function in arch/powerpc/kernel/process.c in the Linux kernel on powerpc platforms mishandled transactional state, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (invalid process state or TM Bad Thing exception, and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by starting and suspending a transaction before an exec system call. (bsc#986569) - CVE-2016-5829: Multiple heap-based buffer overflows in the hiddev_ioctl_usage function in drivers/hid/usbhid/hiddev.c in the Linux kernel allow local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted (1) HIDIOCGUSAGES or (2) HIDIOCSUSAGES ioctl call (bnc#986572).

    description An integer overflow vulnerability was found in xt_alloc_table_info, which on 32-bit systems can lead to small structure allocation and a copy_from_user based heap corruption. (CVE-2016-3135) In the mark_source_chains function (net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_tables.c) it is possible for a user-supplied ipt_entry structure to have a large next_offset field. This field is not bounds checked prior to writing a counter value at the supplied offset. (CVE-2016-3134) A weakness was found in the Linux ASLR implementation. Any user able to run 32-bit applications in a x86 machine can disable the ASLR by setting the RLIMIT_STACK resource to unlimited. (CVE-2016-3672) Destroying a network interface with a large number of IPv4 addresses keeps a rtnl_lock for a very long time, which can block many network-related operations. (CVE-2016-3156) A use-after-free vulnerability was found in the kernel's socket recvmmsg subsystem. This may allow remote attackers to corrupt memory and may allow execution of arbitrary code. This corruption takes place during the error handling routines within __sys_recvmmsg() function. (CVE-2016-7117) (Updated on 2017-01-19: CVE-2016-7117 was fixed in this release but was previously not part of this errata.)

    description According to the versions of the kernel packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities : - arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the Linux kernel through 4.9 mismanages the #BP and #OF exceptions, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) by declining to handle an exception thrown by an L2 guest.(CVE-2016-9588) - The IP stack in the Linux kernel before 4.6 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (stack consumption and panic) or possibly have unspecified other impact by triggering use of the GRO path for packets with tunnel stacking, as demonstrated by interleaved IPv4 headers and GRE headers, a related issue to CVE-2016-7039.(CVE-2016-8666) - The blk_rq_map_user_iov function in block/blk-map.c in the Linux kernel before 4.8.14 does not properly restrict the type of iterator, which allows local users to read or write to arbitrary kernel memory locations or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) by leveraging access to a /dev/sg device.(CVE-2016-9576) - Race condition in the netlink_dump function in net/netlink/af_netlink.c in the Linux kernel before 4.6.3 allows local users to cause a denial of service (double free) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted application that makes sendmsg system calls, leading to a free operation associated with a new dump that started earlier than anticipated.(CVE-2016-9806) - The sg implementation in the Linux kernel through 4.9 does not properly restrict write operations in situations where the KERNEL_DS option is set, which allows local users to read or write to arbitrary kernel memory locations or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) by leveraging access to a /dev/sg device, related to block/bsg.c and drivers/scsi/sg.c. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2016-9576.(CVE-2016-10088) - A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's implementation of the SCTP protocol. A remote attacker could trigger an out-of-bounds read with an offset of up to 64kB potentially causing the system to crash. (CVE-2016-9555) - The arch_pick_mmap_layout function in arch/x86/mm/mmap.c in the Linux kernel through 4.5.2 does not properly randomize the legacy base address, which makes it easier for local users to defeat the intended restrictions on the ADDR_NO_RANDOMIZE flag, and bypass the ASLR protection mechanism for a setuid or setgid program, by disabling stack-consumption resource limits.(CVE-2016-3672) Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory.

CVE-2016-2188: The iowarrior_probe function in drivers/usb/misc/iowarrior.c in the Linux kernel allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a crafted endpoints value in a USB device descriptor (bnc#970956). - CVE-2016-2782: The treo_attach function in drivers/usb/serial/visor.c in the Linux kernel allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by inserting a USB device that lacks a (1) bulk-in or (2) interrupt-in endpoint (bnc#968670). - CVE-2016-2847: fs/pipe.c in the Linux kernel did not limit the amount of unread data in pipes, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by creating many pipes with non-default sizes (bnc#970948). - CVE-2016-3134: The netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did not validate certain offset fields, which allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via an IPT_SO_SET_REPLACE setsockopt call (bnc#971126). - CVE-2016-3136: The mct_u232_msr_to_state function in drivers/usb/serial/mct_u232.c in the Linux kernel allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a crafted USB device without two interrupt-in endpoint descriptors (bnc#970955). - CVE-2016-3137: drivers/usb/serial/cypress_m8.c in the Linux kernel allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a USB device without both an interrupt-in and an interrupt-out endpoint descriptor, related to the cypress_generic_port_probe and cypress_open functions (bnc#970970). - CVE-2016-3138: The acm_probe function in drivers/usb/class/cdc-acm.c in the Linux kernel allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a USB device without both a control and a data endpoint descriptor (bnc#970911). - CVE-2016-3139: The wacom_probe function in drivers/input/tablet/wacom_sys.c in the Linux kernel allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a crafted endpoints value in a USB device descriptor (bnc#970909). - CVE-2016-3140: The digi_port_init function in drivers/usb/serial/digi_acceleport.c in the Linux kernel allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a crafted endpoints value in a USB device descriptor (bnc#970892). - CVE-2016-3156: The IPv4 implementation in the Linux kernel mishandled destruction of device objects, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS networking outage) by arranging for a large number of IP addresses (bnc#971360). - CVE-2016-3672: The arch_pick_mmap_layout function in arch/x86/mm/mmap.c in the Linux kernel did not properly randomize the legacy base address, which made it easier for local users to defeat the intended restrictions on the ADDR_NO_RANDOMIZE flag, and bypass the ASLR protection mechanism for a setuid or setgid program, by disabling stack-consumption resource limits (bnc#974308). - CVE-2016-3689: The ims_pcu_parse_cdc_data function in drivers/input/misc/ims-pcu.c in the Linux kernel allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a USB device without both a master and a slave interface (bnc#971628). - CVE-2016-3951: Double free vulnerability in drivers/net/usb/cdc_ncm.c in the Linux kernel allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by inserting a USB device with an invalid USB descriptor (bnc#974418). - CVE-2016-4482: The proc_connectinfo function in drivers/usb/core/devio.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain data structure, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted USBDEVFS_CONNECTINFO ioctl call (bnc#978401). - CVE-2016-4486: The rtnl_fill_link_ifmap function in net/core/rtnetlink.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain data structure, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory by reading a Netlink message (bnc#978822). - CVE-2016-4565: The InfiniBand (aka IB) stack in the Linux kernel incorrectly relied on the write system call, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (kernel memory write operation) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a uAPI interface (bnc#979548). - CVE-2016-4569: The snd_timer_user_params function in sound/core/timer.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain data structure, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via crafted use of the ALSA timer interface (bnc#979213). - CVE-2016-4578: sound/core/timer.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize certain r1 data structures, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via crafted use of the ALSA timer interface, related to the (1) snd_timer_user_ccallback and (2) snd_timer_user_tinterrupt functions (bnc#979879). - CVE-2016-4805: Use-after-free vulnerability in drivers/net/ppp/ppp_generic.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash, or spinlock) or possibly have unspecified other impact by removing a network namespace, related to the ppp_register_net_channel and ppp_unregister_channel functions (bnc#980371). -

    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service or information leaks. - CVE-2015-7515, CVE-2016-2184, CVE-2016-2185, CVE-2016-2186, CVE-2016-2187, CVE-2016-3136, CVE-2016-3137, CVE-2016-3138, CVE-2016-3140 Ralf Spenneberg of OpenSource Security reported that various USB drivers do not sufficiently validate USB descriptors. This allowed a physically present user with a specially designed USB device to cause a denial of service (crash). - CVE-2016-0821 Solar Designer noted that the list 'poisoning' feature, intended to mitigate the effects of bugs in list manipulation in the kernel, used poison values within the range of virtual addresses that can be allocated by user processes. - CVE-2016-1237 David Sinquin discovered that nfsd does not check permissions when setting ACLs, allowing users to grant themselves permissions to a file by setting the ACL. - CVE-2016-1583 Jann Horn of Google Project Zero reported that the eCryptfs filesystem could be used together with the proc filesystem to cause a kernel stack overflow. If the ecryptfs-utils package is installed, local users could exploit this, via the mount.ecryptfs_private program, for denial of service (crash) or possibly for privilege escalation. - CVE-2016-2117 Justin Yackoski of Cryptonite discovered that the Atheros L2 ethernet driver incorrectly enables scatter/gather I/O. A remote attacker could take advantage of this flaw to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory. - CVE-2016-2143 Marcin Koscielnicki discovered that the fork implementation in the Linux kernel on s390 platforms mishandles the case of four page-table levels, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash). - CVE-2016-3070 Jan Stancek of Red Hat discovered a local denial of service vulnerability in AIO handling. - CVE-2016-3134 The Google Project Zero team found that the netfilter subsystem does not sufficiently validate filter table entries. A user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could use this for denial of service (crash) or possibly for privilege escalation. Debian disables unprivileged user namespaces by default, if locally enabled with the kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone sysctl, this allows privilege escalation. - CVE-2016-3156 Solar Designer discovered that the IPv4 implementation in the Linux kernel did not perform the destruction of inet device objects properly. An attacker in a guest OS could use this to cause a denial of service (networking outage) in the host OS. - CVE-2016-3157 / XSA-171 Andy Lutomirski discovered that the x86_64 (amd64) task switching implementation did not correctly update the I/O permission level when running as a Xen paravirtual (PV) guest. In some configurations this would allow local users to cause a denial of service (crash) or to escalate their privileges within the guest. - CVE-2016-3672 Hector Marco and Ismael Ripoll noted that it was possible to disable Address Space Layout Randomisation (ASLR) for x86_32 (i386) programs by removing the stack resource limit. This made it easier for local users to exploit security flaws in programs that have the setuid or setgid flag set. - CVE-2016-3951 It was discovered that the cdc_ncm driver would free memory prematurely if certain errors occurred during its initialisation. This allowed a physically present user with a specially designed USB device to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly to escalate their privileges. - CVE-2016-3955 Ignat Korchagin reported that the usbip subsystem did not check the length of data received for a USB buffer. This allowed denial of service (crash) or privilege escalation on a system configured as a usbip client, by the usbip server or by an attacker able to impersonate it over the network. A system configured as a usbip server might be similarly vulnerable to physically present users. - CVE-2016-3961 / XSA-174 Vitaly Kuznetsov of Red Hat discovered that Linux allowed the use of hugetlbfs on x86 (i386 and amd64) systems even when running as a Xen paravirtualised (PV) guest, although Xen does not support huge pages. This allowed users with access to /dev/hugepages to cause a denial of service (crash) in the guest. - CVE-2016-4470 David Howells of Red Hat discovered that a local user can trigger a flaw in the Linux kernel's handling of key lookups in the keychain subsystem, leading to a denial of service (crash) or possibly to privilege escalation. - CVE-2016-4482, CVE-2016-4485, CVE-2016-4486, CVE-2016-4569, CVE-2016-4578, CVE-2016-4580, CVE-2016-5243, CVE-2016-5244 Kangjie Lu reported that the USB devio, llc, rtnetlink, ALSA timer, x25, tipc, and rds facilities leaked information from the kernel stack. - CVE-2016-4565 Jann Horn of Google Project Zero reported that various components in the InfiniBand stack implemented unusual semantics for the write() operation. On a system with InfiniBand drivers loaded, local users could use this for denial of service or privilege escalation. - CVE-2016-4581 Tycho Andersen discovered that in some situations the Linux kernel did not handle propagated mounts correctly. A local user can take advantage of this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash). - CVE-2016-4805 Baozeng Ding discovered a use-after-free in the generic PPP layer in the Linux kernel. A local user can take advantage of this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash), or potentially escalate their privileges. - CVE-2016-4913 Al Viro found that the ISO9660 filesystem implementation did not correctly count the length of certain invalid name entries. Reading a directory containing such name entries would leak information from kernel memory. Users permitted to mount disks or disk images could use this to obtain sensitive information. - CVE-2016-4997 / CVE-2016-4998 Jesse Hertz and Tim Newsham discovered that missing input sanitising in Netfilter socket handling may result in denial of service. Debian disables unprivileged user namespaces by default, if locally enabled with the kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone sysctl, this also allows privilege escalation.
