  • Overread Buffers
    An adversary attacks a target by providing input that causes an application to read beyond the boundary of a defined buffer. This typically occurs when a value influencing where to start or stop reading is set to reflect positions outside of the valid memory location of the buffer. This type of attack may result in exposure of sensitive information, a system crash, or arbitrary code execution.

    description According to the versions of the kernel packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities : - The hid_input_field function in drivers/hid/hid-core.c in the Linux kernel before 4.6 allows physically proximate attackers to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory or cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) by connecting a device, as demonstrated by a Logitech DJ receiver.(CVE-2016-7915) - In the Linux kernel through 4.14.13, drivers/block/loop.c mishandles lo_release serialization, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service (__lock_acquire use-after-free) or possibly have unspecified other impact.(CVE-2018-5344) - In the Linux kernel through 4.14.13, the rds_cmsg_atomic() function in 'net/rds/rdma.c' mishandles cases where page pinning fails or an invalid address is supplied by a user. This can lead to a NULL pointer dereference in rds_atomic_free_op() and thus to a system panic.(CVE-2018-5333) - In the Linux kernel through 4.14.13, the rds_message_alloc_sgs() function does not validate a value that is used during DMA page allocation, leading to a heap-based out-of-bounds write (related to the rds_rdma_extra_size() function in 'net/rds/rdma.c') and thus to a system panic. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out, although we believe it is unlikely.(CVE-2018-5332) - A flaw was found in the upstream kernel Skcipher component. This vulnerability affects the skcipher_recvmsg function of the component Skcipher. The manipulation with an unknown input leads to a privilege escalation vulnerability.(CVE-2017-13215) - The tcpmss_mangle_packet function in net/netfilter/xt_TCPMSS.c in the Linux kernel before 4.11, and 4.9.x before 4.9.36, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free and memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging the presence of xt_TCPMSS in an iptables action.(CVE-2017-18017) - The Salsa20 encryption algorithm in the Linux kernel before 4.14.8 does not correctly handle zero-length inputs, allowing a local attacker able to use the AF_ALG-based skcipher interface (CONFIG_CRYPTO_USER_API_SKCIPHER) to cause a denial of service (uninitialized-memory free and kernel crash) or have unspecified other impact by executing a crafted sequence of system calls that use the blkcipher_walk API. Both the generic implementation (crypto/salsa20_generic.c) and x86 implementation (arch/x86/crypto/salsa20_glue.c) of Salsa20 were vulnerable.(CVE-2017-17805) - The HMAC implementation (crypto/hmac.c) in the Linux kernel before 4.14.8 does not validate that the underlying cryptographic hash algorithm is unkeyed, allowing a local attacker able to use the AF_ALG-based hash interface (CONFIG_CRYPTO_USER_API_HASH) and the SHA-3 hash algorithm (CONFIG_CRYPTO_SHA3) to cause a kernel stack buffer overflow by executing a crafted sequence of system calls that encounter a missing SHA-3 initialization.(CVE-2017-17806) - he KEYS subsystem in the Linux kernel before 4.14.6 omitted an access-control check when adding a key to the current task's 'default request-key keyring' via the request_key() system call, allowing a local user to use a sequence of crafted system calls to add keys to a keyring with only Search permission (not Write permission) to that keyring, related to construct_get_dest_keyring() in security/keys/request_key.c.(CVE-2017-17807) - The Linux Kernel 2.6.32 and later are affected by a denial of service, by flooding the diagnostic port 0x80 an exception can be triggered leading to a kernel panic.(CVE-2017-1000407) - The XFRM dump policy implementation in net/xfrm/xfrm_user.c in the Linux kernel before 4.13.11 allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) via a crafted SO_RCVBUF setsockopt system call in conjunction with XFRM_MSG_GETPOLICY Netlink messages.(CVE-2017-16939) - The dccp_disconnect function in net/dccp/proto.c in the Linux kernel through 4.14.3 allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) via an AF_UNSPEC connect system call during the DCCP_LISTEN state.(CVE-2017-8824) - net/netfilter/nfnetlink_cthelper.c in the Linux kernel through 4.14.4 does not require the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for new, get, and del operations, which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions because the nfnl_cthelper_list data structure is shared across all net namespaces.(CVE-2017-17448) - Use-after-free vulnerability in the snd_pcm_info function in the ALSA subsystem in the Linux kernel allows attackers to gain privileges via unspecified vectors.(CVE-2017-0861) - The usb_destroy_configuration function in drivers/usb/core/config.c in the USB core subsystem in the Linux kernel through 4.14.5 does not consider the maximum number of configurations and interfaces before attempting to release resources, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device.(CVE-2017-17558) - The __netlink_deliver_tap_skb function in net/netlink/af_netlink.c in the Linux kernel through 4.14.4, when CONFIG_NLMON is enabled, does not restrict observations of Netlink messages to a single net namespace, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability to sniff an nlmon interface for all Netlink activity on the system.(CVE-2017-17449) - net/netfilter/xt_osf.c in the Linux kernel through 4.14.4 does not require the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for add_callback and remove_callback operations, which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions because the xt_osf_fingers data structure is shared across all net namespaces.(CVE-2017-17450) - The bnep_add_connection function in net/bluetooth/bnep/core.c in the Linux kernel before 3.19 does not ensure that an l2cap socket is available, which allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted application.(CVE-2017-15868) - The einj_error_inject function in drivers/acpi/apei/einj.c in the Linux kernel allows local users to simulate hardware errors and consequently cause a denial of service by leveraging failure to disable APEI error injection through EINJ when securelevel is set.(CVE-2016-3695) Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2018-1068: Fixed flaw in the implementation of 32-bit syscall interface for bridging. This allowed a privileged user to arbitrarily write to a limited range of kernel memory (bnc#1085107). - CVE-2017-18221: The __munlock_pagevec function allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NR_MLOCK accounting corruption) via crafted use of mlockall and munlockall system calls (bnc#1084323). - CVE-2018-1066: Prevent NULL pointer dereference in fs/cifs/cifsencrypt.c:setup_ntlmv2_rsp() that allowed an attacker controlling a CIFS server to kernel panic a client that has this server mounted, because an empty TargetInfo field in an NTLMSSP setup negotiation response was mishandled during session recovery (bnc#1083640). - CVE-2017-13166: Prevent elevation of privilege vulnerability in the kernel v4l2 video driver (bnc#1072865). - CVE-2017-16911: The vhci_hcd driver allowed local attackers to disclose kernel memory addresses. Successful exploitation required that a USB device was attached over IP (bnc#1078674). - CVE-2017-15299: The KEYS subsystem mishandled use of add_key for a key that already exists but is uninstantiated, 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 system call (bnc#1063416). - CVE-2017-18208: The madvise_willneed function kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) by triggering use of MADVISE_WILLNEED for a DAX mapping (bnc#1083494). - CVE-2018-7566: The ALSA sequencer core initializes the event pool on demand by invoking snd_seq_pool_init() when the first write happens and the pool is empty. A user could have reset the pool size manually via ioctl concurrently, which may have lead UAF or out-of-bound access (bsc#1083483). - CVE-2017-18204: The ocfs2_setattr function allowed local users to cause a denial of service (deadlock) via DIO requests (bnc#1083244). - CVE-2017-16644: The hdpvr_probe function allowed local users to cause a denial of service (improper error handling and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device (bnc#1067118). - CVE-2018-6927: The futex_requeue function allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (integer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact by triggering a negative wake or requeue value (bnc#1080757). - CVE-2017-16914: The 'stub_send_ret_submit()' function allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) via a specially crafted USB over IP packet (bnc#1078669). - CVE-2016-7915: The hid_input_field function allowed physically proximate attackers to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory or cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) by connecting a device (bnc#1010470). - CVE-2017-12190: The bio_map_user_iov and bio_unmap_user functions did unbalanced refcounting when a SCSI I/O vector had small consecutive buffers belonging to the same page. The bio_add_pc_page function merged them into one, but the page reference was never dropped. This caused a memory leak and possible system lockup (exploitable against the host OS by a guest OS user, if a SCSI disk is passed through to a virtual machine) due to an out-of-memory condition (bnc#1062568). - CVE-2017-16912: The 'get_pipe()' function allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) via a specially crafted USB over IP packet (bnc#1078673). - CVE-2017-16913: The 'stub_recv_cmd_submit()' function when handling CMD_SUBMIT packets allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (arbitrary memory allocation) via a specially crafted USB over IP packet (bnc#1078672). - CVE-2018-5332: The rds_message_alloc_sgs() function did not validate a value that is used during DMA page allocation, leading to a heap-based out-of-bounds write (related to the rds_rdma_extra_size function in net/rds/rdma.c) (bnc#1075621). - CVE-2018-5333: The rds_cmsg_atomic function in net/rds/rdma.c mishandled cases where page pinning fails or an invalid address is supplied, leading to an rds_atomic_free_op NULL pointer dereference (bnc#1075617). - CVE-2017-18017: The tcpmss_mangle_packet function allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free and memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging the presence of xt_TCPMSS in an iptables action (bnc#1074488).

  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DLA-772.NASL
    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service or information leaks. CVE-2012-6704, CVE-2016-9793 Eric Dumazet found that a local user with CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could set a socket's buffer size to be negative, leading to a denial of service or other security impact. Additionally, in kernel versions prior to 3.5, any user could do this if sysctl net.core.rmem_max was changed to a very large value. CVE-2015-1350 / #770492 Ben Harris reported that local users could remove set-capability attributes from any file visible to them, allowing a denial of service. CVE-2015-8962 Calvin Owens fouund that removing a SCSI device while it was being accessed through the SCSI generic (sg) driver led to a double- free, possibly causing a denial of service (crash or memory corruption) or privilege escalation. This could be exploited by local users with permision to access a SCSI device node. CVE-2015-8963 Sasha Levin reported that hot-unplugging a CPU resulted in a use-after-free by the performance events (perf) subsystem, possibly causing a denial of service (crash or memory corruption) or privilege escalation. This could by exploited by any local user. CVE-2015-8964 It was found that the terminal/serial (tty) subsystem did not reliably reset the terminal buffer state when the terminal line discipline was changed. This could allow a local user with access to a terminal device to read sensitive information from kernel memory. CVE-2016-7097 Jan Kara found that changing the POSIX ACL of a file never cleared its set-group-ID flag, which should be done if the user changing it is not a member of the group-owner. In some cases, this would allow the user-owner of an executable to gain the privileges of the group-owner. CVE-2016-7910 Vegard Nossum discovered that a memory allocation failure while handling a read of /proc/diskstats or /proc/partitions could lead to a use-after-free, possibly causing a denial of service (crash or memory corruption) or privilege escalation. CVE-2016-7911 Dmitry Vyukov reported that a race between ioprio_get() and ioprio_set() system calls could result in a use-after-free, possibly causing a denial of service (crash) or leaking sensitive information. CVE-2016-7915 Benjamin Tissoires found that HID devices could trigger an out-of- bounds memory access in the HID core. A physically present user could possibly use this for denial of service (crash) or to leak sensitive information. CVE-2016-8399 Qidan He reported that the IPv4 ping socket implementation did not validate the length of packets to be sent. A user with permisson to use ping sockets could cause an out-of-bounds read, possibly resulting in a denial of service or information leak. However, on Debian systems no users have permission to create ping sockets by default. CVE-2016-8633 Eyal Itkin reported that the IP-over-Firewire driver (firewire-net) did not validate the offset or length in link-layer fragmentation headers. This allowed a remote system connected by Firewire to write to memory after a packet buffer, leading to a denial of service (crash) or remote code execution. CVE-2016-8645 Marco Grassi reported that if a socket filter (BPF program) attached to a TCP socket truncates or removes the TCP header, this could cause a denial of service (crash). This was exploitable by any local user. CVE-2016-8655 Philip Pettersson found that the implementation of packet sockets (AF_PACKET family) had a race condition between enabling a transmit ring buffer and changing the version of buffers used, which could result in a use-after-free. A local user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could exploit this for privilege escalation. CVE-2016-9178 Al Viro found that a failure to read data from user memory might lead to a information leak on the x86 architecture (amd64 or i386). CVE-2016-9555 Andrey Konovalov reported that the SCTP implementation does not validate 'out of the blue' packet chunk lengths early enough. A remote system able could use this to cause a denial of service (crash) or other security impact for systems using SCTP. CVE-2016-9576, CVE-2016-10088 Dmitry Vyukov reported that using splice() with the SCSI generic driver led to kernel memory corruption. Local users with permision to access a SCSI device node could exploit this for privilege escalation. CVE-2016-9756 Dmitry Vyukov reported that KVM for the x86 architecture (amd64 or i386) did not correctly handle the failure of certain instructions that require software emulation on older processors. This could be exploited by guest systems to leak sensitive information or for denial of service (log spam). CVE-2016-9794 Baozeng Ding reported a race condition in the ALSA (sound) subsystem that could result in a use-after-free. Local users with access to a PCM sound device could exploit this for denial of service (crash or memory corruption) or other security impact. For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 3.2.84-1. This version also includes bug fixes from upstream version 3.2.84 and updates the PREEMPT_RT featureset to version 3.2.84-rt122. Finally, this version adds the option to mitigate security issues in the performance events (perf) subsystem by disabling use by unprivileged users. This can be done by setting sysctl kernel.perf_event_paranoid=3. For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 3.16.39-1 which will be included in the next point release (8.6). 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.

  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_SU-2018-1080-1.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP4 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2017-5715: Systems with microprocessors utilizing speculative execution and indirect branch prediction may allow unauthorized disclosure of information to an attacker with local user access via a side-channel analysis (bnc#1068032). Enhancements and bugfixes over the previous fixes have been added to this kernel. - CVE-2018-10087: The kernel_wait4 function in kernel/exit.c might have allowed local users to cause a denial of service by triggering an attempted use of the -INT_MIN value (bnc#1089608). - CVE-2018-7757: Memory leak in the sas_smp_get_phy_events function in drivers/scsi/libsas/sas_expander.c allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via many read accesses to files in the /sys/class/sas_phy directory, as demonstrated by the /sys/class/sas_phy/phy-1:0:12/invalid_dword_count file (bnc#1084536). - CVE-2018-7566: There was a buffer overflow via an SNDRV_SEQ_IOCTL_SET_CLIENT_POOL ioctl write operation to /dev/snd/seq by a local user (bnc#1083483). - CVE-2017-0861: Use-after-free vulnerability in the snd_pcm_info function in the ALSA subsystem allowed attackers to gain privileges via unspecified vectors (bnc#1088260). - CVE-2018-8822: Incorrect buffer length handling in the ncp_read_kernel function in fs/ncpfs/ncplib_kernel.c could be exploited by malicious NCPFS servers to crash the kernel or execute code (bnc#1086162). - CVE-2017-13166: An elevation of privilege vulnerability in the kernel v4l2 video driver. (bnc#1072865). - CVE-2017-18203: The dm_get_from_kobject function in drivers/md/dm.c allowed local users to cause a denial of service (BUG) by leveraging a race condition with __dm_destroy during creation and removal of DM devices (bnc#1083242). - CVE-2017-16911: The vhci_hcd driver allowed allows local attackers to disclose kernel memory addresses. Successful exploitation requires that a USB device is attached over IP (bnc#1078674). - CVE-2017-18208: The madvise_willneed function in mm/madvise.c local users to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) by triggering use of MADVISE_WILLNEED for a DAX mapping (bnc#1083494). - CVE-2017-16644: The hdpvr_probe function in drivers/media/usb/hdpvr/hdpvr-core.c allowed local users to cause a denial of service (improper error handling and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device (bnc#1067118). - CVE-2018-6927: The futex_requeue function in kernel/futex.c in the Linux kernel might allow attackers to cause a denial of service (integer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact by triggering a negative wake or requeue value (bnc#1080757). - CVE-2017-16914: The 'stub_send_ret_submit()' function (drivers/usb/usbip/stub_tx.c) allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) via a specially crafted USB over IP packet (bnc#1078669). - CVE-2016-7915: The hid_input_field function in drivers/hid/hid-core.c allowed physically proximate attackers to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory or cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) by connecting a device, as demonstrated by a Logitech DJ receiver (bnc#1010470). - CVE-2015-5156: The virtnet_probe function in drivers/net/virtio_net.c 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-2017-12190: The bio_map_user_iov and bio_unmap_user functions in block/bio.c did unbalanced refcounting when a SCSI I/O vector has small consecutive buffers belonging to the same page. The bio_add_pc_page function merges them into one, but the page reference is never dropped. This causes a memory leak and possible system lockup (exploitable against the host OS by a guest OS user, if a SCSI disk is passed through to a virtual machine) due to an out-of-memory condition (bnc#1062568). - CVE-2017-16912: The 'get_pipe()' function (drivers/usb/usbip/stub_rx.c) allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read) via a specially crafted USB over IP packet (bnc#1078673). - CVE-2017-16913: The 'stub_recv_cmd_submit()' function (drivers/usb/usbip/stub_rx.c) when handling CMD_SUBMIT packets allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (arbitrary memory allocation) via a specially crafted USB over IP packet (bnc#1078672). 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.
