  • Forced Integer Overflow
    This attack forces an integer variable to go out of range. The integer variable is often used as an offset such as size of memory allocation or similarly. The attacker would typically control the value of such variable and try to get it out of range. For instance the integer in question is incremented past the maximum possible value, it may wrap to become a very small, or negative number, therefore providing a very incorrect value which can lead to unexpected behavior. At worst the attacker can execute arbitrary code.

    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. Versions: Kernel-3.10, Kernel-3.18. Android ID: A-31349935 (bnc#1014746). - 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-2016-8645: 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-2016-9083: drivers/vfio/pci/vfio_pci.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to bypass integer overflow checks, and cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or have unspecified other impact, by leveraging access to a vfio PCI device file for a VFIO_DEVICE_SET_IRQS ioctl call, aka a 'state machine confusion bug' (bnc#1007197). - CVE-2016-9084: drivers/vfio/pci/vfio_pci_intrs.c in the Linux kernel misuses the kzalloc function, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (integer overflow) or have unspecified other impact by leveraging access to a vfio PCI device file (bnc#1007197). - 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 1013542). - 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 1017589). - 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 (bsc#1019851). - CVE-2017-2583: Fixed broken emulation of 'MOV SS, null selector' (bsc#1020602). - CVE-2017-5551: Clear SGID bit when setting file permissions on tmpfs (bsc#1021258).

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2017:0386 : 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) : * Linux kernel built with the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (CONFIG_KVM) support is vulnerable to a NULL pointer dereference flaw. It could occur on x86 platform, when emulating an undefined instruction. An attacker could use this flaw to crash the host kernel resulting in DoS. (CVE-2016-8630, Important) * A race condition issue leading to a use-after-free flaw was found in the way the raw packet sockets implementation in the Linux kernel networking subsystem handled synchronization while creating the TPACKET_V3 ring buffer. 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-2016-8655, Important) * A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel's implementation of VFIO. An attacker issuing an ioctl can create a situation where memory is corrupted and modify memory outside of the expected area. This may overwrite kernel memory and subvert kernel execution. (CVE-2016-9083, Important) * The use of a kzalloc with an integer multiplication allowed an integer overflow condition to be reached in vfio_pci_intrs.c. This combined with CVE-2016-9083 may allow an attacker to craft an attack and use unallocated memory, potentially crashing the machine.
