  • Embedding Scripts within Scripts
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities that are brought on by allowing remote hosts to execute scripts. The attacker leverages this capability to execute scripts to execute his/her own script by embedding it within other scripts that the target software is likely to execute. The attacker must have the ability to inject script into script that is likely to be executed. If this is done, then the attacker can potentially launch a variety of probes and attacks against the web server's local environment, in many cases the so-called DMZ, back end resources the web server can communicate with, and other hosts. With the proliferation of intermediaries, such as Web App Firewalls, network devices, and even printers having JVMs and Web servers, there are many locales where an attacker can inject malicious scripts. Since this attack pattern defines scripts within scripts, there are likely privileges to execute said attack on the host. Of course, these attacks are not solely limited to the server side, client side scripts like Ajax and client side JavaScript can contain malicious scripts as well. In general all that is required is for there to be sufficient privileges to execute a script, but not protected against writing.
  • Signature Spoofing by Key Theft
    An attacker obtains an authoritative or reputable signer's private signature key by theft and then uses this key to forge signatures from the original signer to mislead a victim into performing actions that benefit the attacker.

  • 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.

    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP1 kernel was updated to 3.12.69 to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2015-8962: Double free vulnerability in the sg_common_write function in drivers/scsi/sg.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) by detaching a device during an SG_IO ioctl call (bnc#1010501). - CVE-2015-8963: Race condition in kernel/events/core.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) by leveraging incorrect handling of an swevent data structure during a CPU unplug operation (bnc#1010502). - CVE-2015-8964: The tty_set_termios_ldisc function in drivers/tty/tty_ldisc.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by reading a tty data structure (bnc#1010507). - CVE-2016-10088: The sg implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly restrict write operations in situations where the KERNEL_DS option is set, which allowed 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 (bnc#1017710). - CVE-2016-7910: Use-after-free vulnerability in the disk_seqf_stop function in block/genhd.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges by leveraging the execution of a certain stop operation even if the corresponding start operation had failed (bnc#1010716). - CVE-2016-7911: Race condition in the get_task_ioprio function in block/ioprio.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) via a crafted ioprio_get system call (bnc#1010711). - CVE-2016-7913: The xc2028_set_config function in drivers/media/tuners/tuner-xc2028.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) via vectors involving omission of the firmware name from a certain data structure (bnc#1010478). - CVE-2016-7914: The assoc_array_insert_into_terminal_node function in lib/assoc_array.c in the Linux kernel did not check whether a slot is a leaf, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory or cause a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference and out-of-bounds read) via an application that uses associative-array data structures, as demonstrated by the keyutils test suite (bnc#1010475). - CVE-2016-8399: An elevation of privilege vulnerability in the kernel networking subsystem could enable a local malicious application to execute arbitrary code within the context of the kernel. This issue is rated as Moderate because it first requires compromising a privileged process and current compiler optimizations restrict access to the vulnerable code. Product: Android.

    title SUSE SLED12 / SLES12 Security Update : kernel (SUSE-SU-2017:0464-1)
  • NASL family Oracle Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2017-2930.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2017:2930 : An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security Fix(es) : * Out-of-bounds kernel heap access vulnerability was found in xfrm, kernel's IP framework for transforming packets. An error dealing with netlink messages from an unprivileged user leads to arbitrary read/write and privilege escalation. (CVE-2017-7184, Important) * A race condition issue leading to a use-after-free flaw was found in the way the raw packet sockets are implemented in the Linux kernel networking subsystem handling synchronization. A local user able to open a raw packet socket (requires the CAP_NET_RAW capability) could use this flaw to elevate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2017-1000111, Important) * An exploitable memory corruption flaw was found in the Linux kernel. The append path can be erroneously switched from UFO to non-UFO in ip_ufo_append_data() when building an UFO packet with MSG_MORE option. If unprivileged user namespaces are available, this flaw can be exploited to gain root privileges. (CVE-2017-1000112, Important) * A flaw was found in the Linux networking subsystem where a local attacker with CAP_NET_ADMIN capabilities could cause an out-of-bounds memory access by creating a smaller-than-expected ICMP header and sending to its destination via sendto(). (CVE-2016-8399, Moderate) * Kernel memory corruption due to a buffer overflow was found in brcmf_cfg80211_mgmt_tx() function in Linux kernels from v3.9-rc1 to v4.13-rc1. The vulnerability can be triggered by sending a crafted NL80211_CMD_FRAME packet via netlink. This flaw is unlikely to be triggered remotely as certain userspace code is needed for this. An unprivileged local user could use this flaw to induce kernel memory corruption on the system, leading to a crash. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out, although it is unlikely. (CVE-2017-7541, Moderate) * An integer overflow vulnerability in ip6_find_1stfragopt() function was found. A local attacker that has privileges (of CAP_NET_RAW) to open raw socket can cause an infinite loop inside the ip6_find_1stfragopt() function. (CVE-2017-7542, Moderate) * A kernel data leak due to an out-of-bound read was found in the Linux kernel in inet_diag_msg_sctp{,l}addr_fill() and sctp_get_sctp_info() functions present since version 4.7-rc1 through version 4.13. A data leak happens when these functions fill in sockaddr data structures used to export socket's diagnostic information. As a result, up to 100 bytes of the slab data could be leaked to a userspace. (CVE-2017-7558, Moderate) * The mq_notify function in the Linux kernel through 4.11.9 does not set the sock pointer to NULL upon entry into the retry logic. During a user-space close of a Netlink socket, it allows attackers to possibly cause a situation where a value may be used after being freed (use-after-free) which may lead to memory corruption or other unspecified other impact. (CVE-2017-11176, Moderate) * A divide-by-zero vulnerability was found in the __tcp_select_window function in the Linux kernel. This can result in a kernel panic causing a local denial of service. (CVE-2017-14106, Moderate) Red Hat would like to thank Chaitin Security Research Lab for reporting CVE-2017-7184; Willem de Bruijn for reporting CVE-2017-1000111; and Andrey Konovalov for reporting CVE-2017-1000112. The CVE-2017-7558 issue was discovered by Stefano Brivio (Red Hat). Space precludes documenting all of the bug fixes and enhancements included in this advisory.

    NASL id SUSE_SU-2017-0494-1.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP3 LTSS kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2015-8970: crypto/algif_skcipher.c in the Linux kernel did not verify that a setkey operation has been performed on an AF_ALG socket before an accept system call is processed, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a crafted application that did not supply a key, related to the lrw_crypt function in crypto/lrw.c (bnc#1008374). - CVE-2017-5551: Clear S_ISGID on tmpfs when setting posix ACLs (bsc#1021258). - CVE-2016-7097: The filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel preserves the setgid bit during a setxattr call, which allowed local users to gain group privileges by leveraging the existence of a setgid program with restrictions on execute permissions (bnc#995968). - CVE-2016-10088: The sg implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly restrict write operations in situations where the KERNEL_DS option is set, which allowed 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 (bnc#1017710). - CVE-2004-0230: TCP, when using a large Window Size, made it easier for remote attackers to guess sequence numbers and cause a denial of service (connection loss) to persistent TCP connections by repeatedly injecting a TCP RST packet, especially in protocols that use long-lived connections, such as BGP (bnc#969340). - CVE-2016-8632: The tipc_msg_build function in net/tipc/msg.c in the Linux kernel did not validate the relationship between the minimum fragment length and the maximum packet size, which allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability (bnc#1008831). - CVE-2016-8399: An elevation of privilege vulnerability in the kernel networking subsystem could have enabled a local malicious application to execute arbitrary code within the context of the kernel bnc#1014746). - CVE-2016-9793: The sock_setsockopt function in net/core/sock.c in the Linux kernel mishandled negative values of sk_sndbuf and sk_rcvbuf, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for a crafted setsockopt system call with the (1) SO_SNDBUFFORCE or (2) SO_RCVBUFFORCE option (bnc#1013531). - CVE-2012-6704: The sock_setsockopt function in net/core/sock.c in the Linux kernel mishandled negative values of sk_sndbuf and sk_rcvbuf, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for a crafted setsockopt system call with the (1) SO_SNDBUF or (2) SO_RCVBUF option (bnc#1013542). - CVE-2016-9756: arch/x86/kvm/emulate.c in the Linux kernel did not properly initialize Code Segment (CS) in certain error cases, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted application (bnc#1013038). - CVE-2016-3841: The IPv6 stack in the Linux kernel mishandled options data, which allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free and system crash) via a crafted sendmsg system call (bnc#992566). - CVE-2016-9685: Multiple memory leaks in error paths in fs/xfs/xfs_attr_list.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via crafted XFS filesystem operations (bnc#1012832). - CVE-2015-1350: The VFS subsystem in the Linux kernel provided an incomplete set of requirements for setattr operations that underspecifies removing extended privilege attributes, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (capability stripping) via a failed invocation of a system call, as demonstrated by using chown to remove a capability from the ping or Wireshark dumpcap program (bnc#914939). - CVE-2015-8962: Double free vulnerability in the sg_common_write function in drivers/scsi/sg.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) by detaching a device during an SG_IO ioctl call (bnc#1010501). - CVE-2016-9555: The sctp_sf_ootb function in net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c in the Linux kernel lacked chunk-length checking for the first chunk, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds slab access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted SCTP data (bnc#1011685). - CVE-2016-7910: Use-after-free vulnerability in the disk_seqf_stop function in block/genhd.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges by leveraging the execution of a certain stop operation even if the corresponding start operation had failed (bnc#1010716). - CVE-2016-7911: Race condition in the get_task_ioprio function in block/ioprio.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) via a crafted ioprio_get system call (bnc#1010711). - CVE-2015-8964: The tty_set_termios_ldisc function in drivers/tty/tty_ldisc.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by reading a tty data structure (bnc#1010507). - CVE-2016-7916: Race condition in the environ_read function in fs/proc/base.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by reading a /proc/*/environ file during a process-setup time interval in which environment-variable copying is incomplete (bnc#1010467). - CVE-2016-8646: The hash_accept function in crypto/algif_hash.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) by attempting to trigger use of in-kernel hash algorithms for a socket that has received zero bytes of data (bnc#1010150). - CVE-2016-8633: drivers/firewire/net.c in the Linux kernel in certain unusual hardware configurations allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted fragmented packets (bnc#1008833). - CVE-2016-7042: The proc_keys_show function in security/keys/proc.c in the Linux, when the GNU Compiler Collection (gcc) stack protector is enabled, used an incorrect buffer size for certain timeout data, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (stack memory corruption and panic) by reading the /proc/keys file (bnc#1004517). - CVE-2015-8956: The rfcomm_sock_bind function in net/bluetooth/rfcomm/sock.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive information or cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) via vectors involving a bind system call on a Bluetooth RFCOMM socket (bnc#1003925). - CVE-2016-7117: Use-after-free vulnerability in the __sys_recvmmsg function in net/socket.c in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via vectors involving a recvmmsg system call that is mishandled during error processing (bnc#1003077). - CVE-2016-0823: The pagemap_open function in fs/proc/task_mmu.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive physical-address information by reading a pagemap file (bnc#994759). - CVE-2016-7425: The arcmsr_iop_message_xfer function in drivers/scsi/arcmsr/arcmsr_hba.c in the Linux kernel did not restrict a certain length field, which allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) via an ARCMSR_MESSAGE_WRITE_WQBUFFER control code (bnc#999932). - CVE-2016-6828: The tcp_check_send_head function in include/net/tcp.h in the Linux kernel did not properly maintain certain SACK state after a failed data copy, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (tcp_xmit_retransmit_queue use-after-free and system crash) via a crafted SACK option (bnc#994296). 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.

    description An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7 Extended Update Support. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security Fix(es) : * A flaw was found in the Linux networking subsystem where a local attacker with CAP_NET_ADMIN capabilities could cause an out-of-bounds memory access by creating a smaller-than-expected ICMP header and sending to its destination via sendto(). (CVE-2016-8399, Moderate) Enhancement(s) : * Previously, the mpt3sas driver incorrectly checked the Transport Layer Retries (TLR) state even on Redundant Array Of Independent Discs (RAID) devices. Consequently, a kernel panic occurred when mpt3sas attempted to read from the RAID devices. With this update, mpt3sas has been fixed to check the TLR state only for non-RAID devices, and the kernel no longer panics under the described circumstances. (BZ#1427459)

  • NASL family CentOS Local Security Checks
    NASL id CENTOS_RHSA-2017-2930.NASL
    description An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security Fix(es) : * Out-of-bounds kernel heap access vulnerability was found in xfrm, kernel's IP framework for transforming packets. An error dealing with netlink messages from an unprivileged user leads to arbitrary read/write and privilege escalation. (CVE-2017-7184, Important) * A race condition issue leading to a use-after-free flaw was found in the way the raw packet sockets are implemented in the Linux kernel networking subsystem handling synchronization. A local user able to open a raw packet socket (requires the CAP_NET_RAW capability) could use this flaw to elevate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2017-1000111, Important) * An exploitable memory corruption flaw was found in the Linux kernel. The append path can be erroneously switched from UFO to non-UFO in ip_ufo_append_data() when building an UFO packet with MSG_MORE option. If unprivileged user namespaces are available, this flaw can be exploited to gain root privileges. (CVE-2017-1000112, Important) * A flaw was found in the Linux networking subsystem where a local attacker with CAP_NET_ADMIN capabilities could cause an out-of-bounds memory access by creating a smaller-than-expected ICMP header and sending to its destination via sendto(). (CVE-2016-8399, Moderate) * Kernel memory corruption due to a buffer overflow was found in brcmf_cfg80211_mgmt_tx() function in Linux kernels from v3.9-rc1 to v4.13-rc1. The vulnerability can be triggered by sending a crafted NL80211_CMD_FRAME packet via netlink. This flaw is unlikely to be triggered remotely as certain userspace code is needed for this. An unprivileged local user could use this flaw to induce kernel memory corruption on the system, leading to a crash. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out, although it is unlikely. (CVE-2017-7541, Moderate) * An integer overflow vulnerability in ip6_find_1stfragopt() function was found. A local attacker that has privileges (of CAP_NET_RAW) to open raw socket can cause an infinite loop inside the ip6_find_1stfragopt() function. (CVE-2017-7542, Moderate) * A kernel data leak due to an out-of-bound read was found in the Linux kernel in inet_diag_msg_sctp{,l}addr_fill() and sctp_get_sctp_info() functions present since version 4.7-rc1 through version 4.13. A data leak happens when these functions fill in sockaddr data structures used to export socket's diagnostic information. As a result, up to 100 bytes of the slab data could be leaked to a userspace. (CVE-2017-7558, Moderate) * The mq_notify function in the Linux kernel through 4.11.9 does not set the sock pointer to NULL upon entry into the retry logic. During a user-space close of a Netlink socket, it allows attackers to possibly cause a situation where a value may be used after being freed (use-after-free) which may lead to memory corruption or other unspecified other impact. (CVE-2017-11176, Moderate) * A divide-by-zero vulnerability was found in the __tcp_select_window function in the Linux kernel. This can result in a kernel panic causing a local denial of service. (CVE-2017-14106, Moderate) Red Hat would like to thank Chaitin Security Research Lab for reporting CVE-2017-7184; Willem de Bruijn for reporting CVE-2017-1000111; and Andrey Konovalov for reporting CVE-2017-1000112. The CVE-2017-7558 issue was discovered by Stefano Brivio (Red Hat). Space precludes documenting all of the bug fixes and enhancements included in this advisory.

    title Oracle Linux 6 : Unbreakable Enterprise kernel (ELSA-2017-3567)
  • NASL family Virtuozzo Local Security Checks
    NASL id VIRTUOZZO_VZA-2017-025.NASL
    description According to the versions of the parallels-server-bm-release / vzkernel / etc packages installed, the Virtuozzo installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities : - A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's handling of packets with the URG flag. Applications using the splice() and tcp_splice_read() functionality can allow a remote attacker to force the kernel to enter a condition in which it can loop indefinitely. - It was discovered that a remote attacker could leverage the generation of IPv6 atomic fragments to trigger the use of fragmentation in an arbitrary IPv6 flow (in scenarios in which actual fragmentation of packets is not needed) and could subsequently perform any type of a fragmentation-based attack against legacy IPv6 nodes that do not implement RFC6946. - It was found that the blk_rq_map_user_iov() function in the Linux kernel's block device implementation did not properly restrict the type of iterator, which could allow a local attacker to read or write to arbitrary kernel memory locations or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) by leveraging write access to a /dev/sg device. - 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. - A flaw was found in the Linux networking subsystem where a local attacker with CAP_NET_ADMIN capabilities could cause an out-of-bounds memory access by creating a smaller-than-expected ICMP header and sending to its destination via sendto(). - It was found that when file permissions were modified via chmod and the user modifying them was not in the owning group or capable of CAP_FSETID, the setgid bit would be cleared. Setting a POSIX ACL via setxattr sets the file permissions as well as the new ACL, but doesn't clear the setgid bit in a similar way. This could allow a local user to gain group privileges via certain setgid applications. - It was found that when the gcc stack protector was enabled, reading the /proc/keys file could cause a panic in the Linux kernel due to stack corruption. This happened because an incorrect buffer size was used to hold a 64-bit timeout value rendered as weeks. - A race condition flaw was found in the ioctl_send_fib() function in the Linux kernel's aacraid implementation. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds access or system crash) by changing a certain size value. - When creating audit records for parameters to executed children processes, an attacker can convince the Linux kernel audit subsystem can create corrupt records which may allow an attacker to misrepresent or evade logging of executing commands. - A flaw was discovered in the way the Linux kernel dealt with paging structures. When the kernel invalidated a paging structure that was not in use locally, it could, in principle, race against another CPU that is switching to a process that uses the paging structure in question. A local user could use a thread running with a stale cached virtual->physical translation to potentially escalate their privileges if the translation in question were writable and the physical page got reused for something critical (for example, a page table). - A flaw was found in the USB-MIDI Linux kernel driver: a double-free error could be triggered for the 'umidi' object. An attacker with physical access to the system could use this flaw to escalate their privileges. Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Virtuozzo security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description Security Fix(es) : - Out-of-bounds kernel heap access vulnerability was found in xfrm, kernel's IP framework for transforming packets. An error dealing with netlink messages from an unprivileged user leads to arbitrary read/write and privilege escalation. (CVE-2017-7184, Important) - A race condition issue leading to a use-after-free flaw was found in the way the raw packet sockets are implemented in the Linux kernel networking subsystem handling synchronization. A local user able to open a raw packet socket (requires the CAP_NET_RAW capability) could use this flaw to elevate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2017-1000111, Important) - An exploitable memory corruption flaw was found in the Linux kernel. The append path can be erroneously switched from UFO to non-UFO in ip_ufo_append_data() when building an UFO packet with MSG_MORE option. If unprivileged user namespaces are available, this flaw can be exploited to gain root privileges. (CVE-2017-1000112, Important) - A flaw was found in the Linux networking subsystem where a local attacker with CAP_NET_ADMIN capabilities could cause an out-of-bounds memory access by creating a smaller-than-expected ICMP header and sending to its destination via sendto(). (CVE-2016-8399, Moderate) - Kernel memory corruption due to a buffer overflow was found in brcmf_cfg80211_mgmt_tx() function in Linux kernels from v3.9-rc1 to v4.13-rc1. The vulnerability can be triggered by sending a crafted NL80211_CMD_FRAME packet via netlink. This flaw is unlikely to be triggered remotely as certain userspace code is needed for this. An unprivileged local user could use this flaw to induce kernel memory corruption on the system, leading to a crash. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out, although it is unlikely. (CVE-2017-7541, Moderate) - An integer overflow vulnerability in ip6_find_1stfragopt() function was found. A local attacker that has privileges (of CAP_NET_RAW) to open raw socket can cause an infinite loop inside the ip6_find_1stfragopt() function. (CVE-2017-7542, Moderate) - A kernel data leak due to an out-of-bound read was found in the Linux kernel in inet_diag_msg_sctp{,l}addr_fill() and sctp_get_sctp_info() functions present since version 4.7-rc1 through version 4.13. A data leak happens when these functions fill in sockaddr data structures used to export socket's diagnostic information. As a result, up to 100 bytes of the slab data could be leaked to a userspace. (CVE-2017-7558, Moderate) - The mq_notify function in the Linux kernel through 4.11.9 does not set the sock pointer to NULL upon entry into the retry logic. During a user- space close of a Netlink socket, it allows attackers to possibly cause a situation where a value may be used after being freed (use-after-free) which may lead to memory corruption or other unspecified other impact. (CVE-2017-11176, Moderate) - A divide-by-zero vulnerability was found in the __tcp_select_window function in the Linux kernel. This can result in a kernel panic causing a local denial of service. (CVE-2017-14106, Moderate)

  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2017-2931.NASL
    description An update for kernel-rt is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. The kernel-rt packages provide the Real Time Linux Kernel, which enables fine-tuning for systems with extremely high determinism requirements. Security Fix(es) : * Out-of-bounds kernel heap access vulnerability was found in xfrm, kernel's IP framework for transforming packets. An error dealing with netlink messages from an unprivileged user leads to arbitrary read/write and privilege escalation. (CVE-2017-7184, Important) * A race condition issue leading to a use-after-free flaw was found in the way the raw packet sockets are implemented in the Linux kernel networking subsystem handling synchronization. A local user able to open a raw packet socket (requires the CAP_NET_RAW capability) could use this flaw to elevate their privileges on the system.

(CVE-2016-8399, Moderate) * Kernel memory corruption due to a buffer overflow was found in brcmf_cfg80211_mgmt_tx() function in Linux kernels from v3.9-rc1 to v4.13-rc1. The vulnerability can be triggered by sending a crafted NL80211_CMD_FRAME packet via netlink. This flaw is unlikely to be triggered remotely as certain userspace code is needed for this. An unprivileged local user could use this flaw to induce kernel memory corruption on the system, leading to a crash. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out, although it is unlikely. (CVE-2017-7541, Moderate) * An integer overflow vulnerability in ip6_find_1stfragopt() function was found. A local attacker that has privileges (of CAP_NET_RAW) to open raw socket can cause an infinite loop inside the ip6_find_1stfragopt() function. (CVE-2017-7542, Moderate) * A kernel data leak due to an out-of-bound read was found in the Linux kernel in inet_diag_msg_sctp{,l}addr_fill() and sctp_get_sctp_info() functions present since version 4.7-rc1 through version 4.13. A data leak happens when these functions fill in sockaddr data structures used to export socket's diagnostic information. As a result, up to 100 bytes of the slab data could be leaked to a userspace. (CVE-2017-7558, Moderate) * The mq_notify function in the Linux kernel through 4.11.9 does not set the sock pointer to NULL upon entry into the retry logic.

    description A flaw was found in the Linux kernel key management subsystem in which a local attacker could crash the kernel or corrupt the stack and additional memory (denial of service) by supplying a specially crafted RSA key. This flaw panics the machine during the verification of the RSA key. (CVE-2016-8650) 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) The sock_setsockopt function in net/core/sock.c in the Linux kernel before 4.8.14 mishandles negative values of sk_sndbuf and sk_rcvbuf, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for a crafted setsockopt system call with the (1) SO_SNDBUFFORCE or (2) SO_RCVBUFFORCE option. (CVE-2016-9793) A flaw was found in the Linux networking subsystem where a local attacker with CAP_NET_ADMIN capabilities could cause an out of bounds read by creating a smaller-than-expected ICMP header and sending to its destination via sendto(). (CVE-2016-8399) Algorithms not compatible with mcryptd could be spawned by mcryptd with a direct crypto_alloc_tfm invocation using a 'mcryptd(alg)' name construct. This causes mcryptd to crash the kernel if an arbitrary 'alg' is incompatible and not intended to be used with mcryptd. (CVE-2016-10147) (Updated on 2017-01-19: CVE-2016-8399 was fixed in this release but was previously not part of this errata.)

    description An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security Fix(es) : * It was discovered that a remote attacker could leverage the generation of IPv6 atomic fragments to trigger the use of fragmentation in an arbitrary IPv6 flow (in scenarios in which actual fragmentation of packets is not needed) and could subsequently perform any type of a fragmentation-based attack against legacy IPv6 nodes that do not implement RFC6946. (CVE-2016-10142, Moderate) * A flaw was discovered in the way the Linux kernel dealt with paging structures. When the kernel invalidated a paging structure that was not in use locally, it could, in principle, race against another CPU that is switching to a process that uses the paging structure in question. A local user could use a thread running with a stale cached virtual->physical translation to potentially escalate their privileges if the translation in question were writable and the physical page got reused for something critical (for example, a page table). (CVE-2016-2069, Moderate) * A race condition flaw was found in the ioctl_send_fib() function in the Linux kernel's aacraid implementation. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds access or system crash) by changing a certain size value. (CVE-2016-6480, Moderate) * It was found that when the gcc stack protector was enabled, reading the /proc/keys file could cause a panic in the Linux kernel due to stack corruption. This happened because an incorrect buffer size was used to hold a 64-bit timeout value rendered as weeks. (CVE-2016-7042, Moderate) * It was found that when file permissions were modified via chmod and the user modifying them was not in the owning group or capable of CAP_FSETID, the setgid bit would be cleared. Setting a POSIX ACL via setxattr sets the file permissions as well as the new ACL, but doesn't clear the setgid bit in a similar way. This could allow a local user to gain group privileges via certain setgid applications. (CVE-2016-7097, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the Linux networking subsystem where a local attacker with CAP_NET_ADMIN capabilities could cause an out-of-bounds memory access by creating a smaller-than-expected ICMP header and sending to its destination via sendto(). (CVE-2016-8399, Moderate) * It was found that the blk_rq_map_user_iov() function in the Linux kernel's block device implementation did not properly restrict the type of iterator, which could allow a local attacker to read or write to arbitrary kernel memory locations or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) by leveraging write access to a /dev/sg device. (CVE-2016-9576, CVE-2016-10088, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the USB-MIDI Linux kernel driver: a double-free error could be triggered for the 'umidi' object. An attacker with physical access to the system could use this flaw to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2016-2384, Low) The CVE-2016-7042 issue was discovered by Ondrej Kozina (Red Hat) and the CVE-2016-7097 issue was discovered by Andreas Gruenbacher (Red Hat) and Jan Kara (SUSE).

    description Mikulas Patocka discovered that the asynchronous multibuffer cryptographic daemon (mcryptd) in the Linux kernel did not properly handle being invoked with incompatible algorithms. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2016-10147) It was discovered that a use-after-free existed in the KVM susbsystem of the Linux kernel when creating devices. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2016-10150) Qidan He discovered that the ICMP implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly check the size of an ICMP header. A local attacker with CAP_NET_ADMIN could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2016-8399) Qian Zhang discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in the tipc_msg_build() function in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possible execute arbitrary code with administrative privileges. (CVE-2016-8632) Dmitry Vyukov discovered that the KVM implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly restrict the VCPU index when I/O APIC is enabled, An attacker in a guest VM could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly gain privileges in the host OS. (CVE-2016-9777). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    NASL id SUSE_SU-2017-0471-1.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 GA LTSS kernel was updated to 3.12.61 to receive various security and bugfixes. The following feature was implemented : - The ext2 filesystem got reenabled and supported to allow support for 'XIP' (Execute In Place) (FATE#320805). The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2017-5551: The tmpfs filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel preserved the setgid bit during a setxattr call, which allowed local users to gain group privileges by leveraging the existence of a setgid program with restrictions on execute permissions (bsc#1021258). - CVE-2016-7097: The filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel preserved the setgid bit during a setxattr call, which allowed local users to gain group privileges by leveraging the existence of a setgid program with restrictions on execute permissions (bnc#995968). - CVE-2017-2583: A Linux kernel built with the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (CONFIG_KVM) support was vulnerable to an incorrect segment selector(SS) value error. A user/process inside guest could have used this flaw to crash the guest resulting in DoS or potentially escalate their privileges inside guest. (bsc#1020602). - CVE-2017-2584: arch/x86/kvm/emulate.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) via a crafted application that leverages instruction emulation for fxrstor, fxsave, sgdt, and sidt (bnc#1019851). - CVE-2016-10088: The sg implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly restrict write operations in situations where the KERNEL_DS option is set, which allowed 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 (bnc#1017710). - CVE-2016-8645: The TCP stack in the Linux kernel mishandled skb truncation, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a crafted application that made sendto system calls, related to net/ipv4/tcp_ipv4.c and net/ipv6/tcp_ipv6.c (bnc#1009969). - CVE-2016-8399: An elevation of privilege vulnerability in the kernel networking subsystem could enable a local malicious application to execute arbitrary code within the context of the kernel. This issue is rated as Moderate because it first requires compromising a privileged process and current compiler optimizations restrict access to the vulnerable code. Product: Android. Versions: Kernel-3.10, Kernel-3.18. Android ID: A-31349935 (bnc#1014746). - CVE-2016-9806: Race condition in the netlink_dump function in net/netlink/af_netlink.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (double free) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted application that made sendmsg system calls, leading to a free operation associated with a new dump that started earlier than anticipated (bnc#1013540). - CVE-2016-9756: arch/x86/kvm/emulate.c in the Linux kernel did not properly initialize Code Segment (CS) in certain error cases, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted application (bnc#1013038). - CVE-2016-9793: The sock_setsockopt function in net/core/sock.c in the Linux kernel mishandled negative values of sk_sndbuf and sk_rcvbuf, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for a crafted setsockopt system call with the (1) SO_SNDBUFFORCE or (2) SO_RCVBUFFORCE option (bnc#1013531). - CVE-2016-7910: Use-after-free vulnerability in the disk_seqf_stop function in block/genhd.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges by leveraging the execution of a certain stop operation even if the corresponding start operation had failed (bnc#1010716). - CVE-2015-8962: Double free vulnerability in the sg_common_write function in drivers/scsi/sg.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) by detaching a device during an SG_IO ioctl call (bnc#1010501). - CVE-2016-7913: The xc2028_set_config function in drivers/media/tuners/tuner-xc2028.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) via vectors involving omission of the firmware name from a certain data structure (bnc#1010478). - CVE-2016-7911: Race condition in the get_task_ioprio function in block/ioprio.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) via a crafted ioprio_get system call (bnc#1010711). -

    title SUSE SLES12 Security Update : kernel (SUSE-SU-2017:0471-1)
  • NASL family Oracle Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2017-0817.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2017:0817 : An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security Fix(es) : * It was discovered that a remote attacker could leverage the generation of IPv6 atomic fragments to trigger the use of fragmentation in an arbitrary IPv6 flow (in scenarios in which actual fragmentation of packets is not needed) and could subsequently perform any type of a fragmentation-based attack against legacy IPv6 nodes that do not implement RFC6946. (CVE-2016-10142, Moderate) * A flaw was discovered in the way the Linux kernel dealt with paging structures. When the kernel invalidated a paging structure that was not in use locally, it could, in principle, race against another CPU that is switching to a process that uses the paging structure in question. A local user could use a thread running with a stale cached virtual->physical translation to potentially escalate their privileges if the translation in question were writable and the physical page got reused for something critical (for example, a page table). (CVE-2016-2069, Moderate) * A race condition flaw was found in the ioctl_send_fib() function in the Linux kernel's aacraid implementation. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds access or system crash) by changing a certain size value. (CVE-2016-6480, Moderate) * It was found that when the gcc stack protector was enabled, reading the / proc/keys file could cause a panic in the Linux kernel due to stack corruption. This happened because an incorrect buffer size was used to hold a 64-bit timeout value rendered as weeks. (CVE-2016-7042, Moderate) * It was found that when file permissions were modified via chmod and the user modifying them was not in the owning group or capable of CAP_FSETID, the setgid bit would be cleared. Setting a POSIX ACL via setxattr sets the file permissions as well as the new ACL, but doesn't clear the setgid bit in a similar way. This could allow a local user to gain group privileges via certain setgid applications. (CVE-2016-7097, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the Linux networking subsystem where a local attacker with CAP_NET_ADMIN capabilities could cause an out-of-bounds memory access by creating a smaller-than-expected ICMP header and sending to its destination via sendto(). (CVE-2016-8399, Moderate) * It was found that the blk_rq_map_user_iov() function in the Linux kernel's block device implementation did not properly restrict the type of iterator, which could allow a local attacker to read or write to arbitrary kernel memory locations or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) by leveraging write access to a /dev/sg device. (CVE-2016-9576, CVE-2016-10088, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the USB-MIDI Linux kernel driver: a double-free error could be triggered for the 'umidi' object. An attacker with physical access to the system could use this flaw to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2016-2384, Low) The CVE-2016-7042 issue was discovered by Ondrej Kozina (Red Hat) and the CVE-2016-7097 issue was discovered by Andreas Gruenbacher (Red Hat) and Jan Kara (SUSE).
