    NASL id SUSE_SU-2017-2908-1.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP1 LTS kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2017-15649: net/packet/af_packet.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges via crafted system calls that trigger mishandling of packet_fanout data structures, because of a race condition (involving fanout_add and packet_do_bind) that leads to a use-after-free, a different vulnerability than CVE-2017-6346 (bnc#1064388). - CVE-2017-13080: Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA and WPA2) allowed reinstallation of the Group Temporal Key (GTK) during the group key handshake, allowing an attacker within radio range to replay frames from access points to clients (bnc#1063667). - CVE-2017-15274: security/keys/keyctl.c in the Linux kernel did not consider the case of a NULL payload in conjunction with a nonzero length value, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted add_key or keyctl system call, a different vulnerability than CVE-2017-12192 (bnc#1045327). - CVE-2017-15265: Use-after-free vulnerability in the Linux kernel allowed local users to have unspecified impact via vectors related to /dev/snd/seq (bnc#1062520). - CVE-2017-1000365: The Linux Kernel imposes a size restriction on the arguments and environmental strings passed through RLIMIT_STACK/RLIM_INFINITY (1/4 of the size), but did not take the argument and environment pointers into account, which allowed attackers to bypass this limitation. (bnc#1039354). - CVE-2017-12153: A security flaw was discovered in the nl80211_set_rekey_data() function in net/wireless/nl80211.c in the Linux kernel This function did not check whether the required attributes are present in a Netlink request. This request can be issued by a user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability and may result in a NULL pointer dereference and system crash (bnc#1058410). - CVE-2017-12154: The prepare_vmcs02 function in arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the Linux kernel did not ensure that the 'CR8-load exiting' and 'CR8-store exiting' L0 vmcs02 controls exist in cases where L1 omits the 'use TPR shadow' vmcs12 control, which allowed KVM L2 guest OS users to obtain read and write access to the hardware CR8 register (bnc#1058507). - CVE-2017-14106: The tcp_disconnect function in net/ipv4/tcp.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (__tcp_select_window divide-by-zero error and system crash) by triggering a disconnect within a certain tcp_recvmsg code path (bnc#1056982). - CVE-2017-14140: The move_pages system call in mm/migrate.c in the Linux kernel doesn't check the effective uid of the target process, enabling a local attacker to learn the memory layout of a setuid executable despite ASLR (bnc#1057179). - CVE-2017-14051: An integer overflow in the qla2x00_sysfs_write_optrom_ctl function in drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/qla_attr.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) by leveraging root access (bnc#1056588). - CVE-2017-10661: Race condition in fs/timerfd.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (list corruption or use-after-free) via simultaneous file-descriptor operations that leverage improper might_cancel queueing (bnc#1053152). - CVE-2017-12762: In /drivers/isdn/i4l/isdn_net.c: A user-controlled buffer is copied into a local buffer of constant size using strcpy without a length check which can cause a buffer overflow. (bnc#1053148). - CVE-2017-8831: The saa7164_bus_get function in drivers/media/pci/saa7164/saa7164-bus.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access) or possibly have unspecified other impact by changing a certain sequence-number value, aka a 'double fetch' vulnerability (bnc#1037994). - CVE-2017-7482: A potential memory corruption was fixed in decoding of krb5 principals in the kernels kerberos handling. (bnc#1046107). - CVE-2017-7542: The ip6_find_1stfragopt function in net/ipv6/output_core.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (integer overflow and infinite loop) by leveraging the ability to open a raw socket (bnc#1049882). - CVE-2017-11176: The mq_notify function in the Linux kernel did not set the sock pointer to NULL upon entry into the retry logic. During a user-space close of a Netlink socket, it allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free) or possibly have unspecified other impact (bnc#1048275). - CVE-2017-7541: The brcmf_cfg80211_mgmt_tx function in drivers/net/wireless/broadcom/brcm80211/brcmfmac/cfg8021 1.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via a crafted NL80211_CMD_FRAME Netlink packet (bnc#1049645). - CVE-2017-7518: The Linux kernel was vulnerable to an incorrect debug exception(#DB) error. It could occur while emulating a syscall instruction and potentially lead to guest privilege escalation. (bsc#1045922). - CVE-2017-8924: The edge_bulk_in_callback function in drivers/usb/serial/io_ti.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive information (in the dmesg ringbuffer and syslog) from uninitialized kernel memory by using a crafted USB device (posing as an io_ti USB serial device) to trigger an integer underflow (bnc#1037182 bsc#1038982). - CVE-2017-8925: The omninet_open function in drivers/usb/serial/omninet.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (tty exhaustion) by leveraging reference count mishandling (bnc#1037183 bsc#1038981). - CVE-2017-1000380: sound/core/timer.c in the Linux kernel was vulnerable to a data race in the ALSA /dev/snd/timer driver resulting in local users being able to read information belonging to other users, i.e., uninitialized memory contents might have been disclosed when a read and an ioctl happen at the same time (bnc#1044125). - CVE-2017-9242: The __ip6_append_data function in net/ipv6/ip6_output.c in the Linux kernel is too late in checking whether an overwrite of an skb data structure may occur, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via crafted system calls (bnc#1041431). - CVE-2017-1000363: Linux drivers/char/lp.c Out-of-Bounds Write. Due to a missing bounds check, and the fact that parport_ptr integer is static, a 'secure boot' kernel command line adversary (could happen due to bootloader vulns, e.g. Google Nexus 6's CVE-2016-10277, where due to a vulnerability the adversary has partial control over the command line) could overflow the parport_nr array in the following code, by appending many (>LP_NO) 'lp=none' arguments to the command line (bnc#1039456). - CVE-2017-9076: The dccp_v6_request_recv_sock function in net/dccp/ipv6.c in the Linux kernel mishandled inheritance, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted system calls, a related issue to CVE-2017-8890 (bnc#1039885). - CVE-2017-9077: The tcp_v6_syn_recv_sock function in net/ipv6/tcp_ipv6.c in the Linux kernel mishandled inheritance, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted system calls, a related issue to CVE-2017-8890 (bnc#1040069). - CVE-2017-9075: The sctp_v6_create_accept_sk function in net/sctp/ipv6.c in the Linux kernel mishandled inheritance, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted system calls, a related issue to CVE-2017-8890 (bnc#1039883). - CVE-2017-9074: The IPv6 fragmentation implementation in the Linux kernel did not consider that the nexthdr field may be associated with an invalid option, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and BUG) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted socket and send system calls (bnc#1039882). - CVE-2017-7487: The ipxitf_ioctl function in net/ipx/af_ipx.c in the Linux kernel mishandled reference counts, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (use-after-free) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a failed SIOCGIFADDR ioctl call for an IPX interface (bnc#1038879). - CVE-2017-8890: The inet_csk_clone_lock function in net/ipv4/inet_connection_sock.c in the Linux kernel allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (double free) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging use of the accept system call (bnc#1038544). - CVE-2017-7889: The mm subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly enforce the CONFIG_STRICT_DEVMEM protection mechanism, which allowed local users to read or write to kernel memory locations in the first megabyte (and bypass slab-allocation access restrictions) via an application that opens the /dev/mem file, related to arch/x86/mm/init.c and drivers/char/mem.c (bnc#1034405). The following new features were implemented : - the r8152 network driver was updated to support Realtek RTL8152/RTL8153 Based USB Ethernet Adapters (fate#321482) 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.

    NASL id VIRTUOZZO_VZA-2017-077.NASL
    description According to the version of the vzkernel package and the readykernel-patch installed, the Virtuozzo installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities : - The __ip6_append_data function in net/ipv6/ip6_output.c in the Linux kernel through 4.11.3 is too late in checking whether an overwrite of an skb data structure may occur, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via crafted system calls. - 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. 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.

    NASL id SUSE_SU-2017-2847-1.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP3 kernel was updated to 4.4.92 to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2017-1000252: The KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (assertion failure, and hypervisor hang or crash) via an out-of bounds guest_irq value, related to arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c and virt/kvm/eventfd.c (bnc#1058038). - CVE-2017-11472: The acpi_ns_terminate() function in drivers/acpi/acpica/nsutils.c in the Linux kernel did not flush the operand cache and causes a kernel stack dump, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory and bypass the KASLR protection mechanism (in the kernel through 4.9) via a crafted ACPI table (bnc#1049580). - CVE-2017-12134: The xen_biovec_phys_mergeable function in drivers/xen/biomerge.c in Xen might allow local OS guest users to corrupt block device data streams and consequently obtain sensitive memory information, cause a denial of service, or gain host OS privileges by leveraging incorrect block IO merge-ability calculation (bnc#1051790 bsc#1053919). - CVE-2017-12153: A security flaw was discovered in the nl80211_set_rekey_data() function in net/wireless/nl80211.c in the Linux kernel This function did not check whether the required attributes are present in a Netlink request. This request can be issued by a user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability and may result in a NULL pointer dereference and system crash (bnc#1058410). - CVE-2017-12154: The prepare_vmcs02 function in arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the Linux kernel did not ensure that the 'CR8-load exiting' and 'CR8-store exiting' L0 vmcs02 controls exist in cases where L1 omits the 'use TPR shadow' vmcs12 control, which allowed KVM L2 guest OS users to obtain read and write access to the hardware CR8 register (bnc#1058507). - CVE-2017-13080: Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA and WPA2) allowed reinstallation of the Group Temporal Key (GTK) during the group key handshake, allowing an attacker within radio range to replay frames from access points to clients (bnc#1056061 1063479 1063667 1063671). - CVE-2017-14051: An integer overflow in the qla2x00_sysfs_write_optrom_ctl function in drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/qla_attr.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) by leveraging root access (bnc#1056588). - CVE-2017-14106: The tcp_disconnect function in net/ipv4/tcp.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (__tcp_select_window divide-by-zero error and system crash) by triggering a disconnect within a certain tcp_recvmsg code path (bnc#1056982). - CVE-2017-14489: The iscsi_if_rx function in drivers/scsi/scsi_transport_iscsi.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (panic) by leveraging incorrect length validation (bnc#1059051). - CVE-2017-15265: Use-after-free vulnerability in the Linux kernel before 4.14-rc5 allowed local users to have unspecified impact via vectors related to /dev/snd/seq (bnc#1062520). - CVE-2017-15649: net/packet/af_packet.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges via crafted system calls that trigger mishandling of packet_fanout data structures, because of a race condition (involving fanout_add and packet_do_bind) that leads to a use-after-free, a different vulnerability than CVE-2017-6346 (bnc#1064388). 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.

    title SUSE SLED12 / SLES12 Security Update : kernel (SUSE-SU-2017:2847-1) (KRACK)
  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_SU-2018-0040-1.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP3 LTSS kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. This update adds mitigations for various side channel attacks against modern CPUs that could disclose content of otherwise unreadable memory (bnc#1068032). - CVE-2017-5753: Local attackers on systems with modern CPUs featuring deep instruction pipelining could use attacker controllable speculative execution over code patterns in the Linux Kernel to leak content from otherwise not readable memory in the same address space, allowing retrieval of passwords, cryptographic keys and other secrets. This problem is mitigated by adding speculative fencing on affected code paths throughout the Linux kernel. - CVE-2017-5715: Local attackers on systems with modern CPUs featuring branch prediction could use mispredicted branches to speculatively execute code patterns that in turn could be made to leak other non-readable content in the same address space, an attack similar to CVE-2017-5753. This problem is mitigated by disabling predictive branches, depending on CPU architecture either by firmware updates and/or fixes in the user-kernel privilege boundaries. Please contact your CPU / hardware vendor for potential microcode or BIOS updates needed for this fix. As this feature can have a performance impact, it can be disabled using the 'nospec' kernel commandline option. - CVE-2017-5754: Local attackers on systems with modern CPUs featuring deep instruction pipelining could use code patterns in userspace to speculative executive code that would read otherwise read protected memory, an attack similar to CVE-2017-5753. This problem is mitigated by unmapping the Linux Kernel from the user address space during user code execution, following a approach called 'KAISER'. The terms used here are 'KAISER' / 'Kernel Address Isolation' and 'PTI' / 'Page Table Isolation'. This feature is disabled on unaffected architectures. This feature can be enabled / disabled by the 'pti=[on|off|auto]' or 'nopti' commandline options. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2017-1000251: The native Bluetooth stack in the Linux Kernel (BlueZ) was vulnerable to a stack overflow vulnerability in the processing of L2CAP configuration responses resulting in Remote code execution in kernel space (bnc#1057389). - CVE-2017-11600: net/xfrm/xfrm_policy.c in the Linux kernel did not ensure that the dir value of xfrm_userpolicy_id is XFRM_POLICY_MAX or less, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via an XFRM_MSG_MIGRATE xfrm Netlink message (bnc#1050231). - CVE-2017-13080: Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA and WPA2) allowed reinstallation of the Group Temporal Key (GTK) during the group key handshake, allowing an attacker within radio range to replay frames from access points to clients (bnc#1063667). - CVE-2017-13167: An elevation of privilege vulnerability in the kernel sound timer was fixed. (bnc#1072876). - CVE-2017-14106: The tcp_disconnect function in net/ipv4/tcp.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (__tcp_select_window divide-by-zero error and system crash) by triggering a disconnect within a certain tcp_recvmsg code path (bnc#1056982). -

CVE-2017-15102: The tower_probe function in drivers/usb/misc/legousbtower.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users (who are physically proximate for inserting a crafted USB device) to gain privileges by leveraging a write-what-where condition that occurs after a race condition and a NULL pointer dereference (bnc#1066705). - CVE-2017-15115: The sctp_do_peeloff function in net/sctp/socket.c in the Linux kernel did not check whether the intended netns is used in a peel-off action, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (use-after-free and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted system calls (bnc#1068671). - CVE-2017-15265: Race condition in the ALSA subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (use-after-free) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted /dev/snd/seq ioctl calls, related to sound/core/seq/seq_clientmgr.c and sound/core/seq/seq_ports.c (bnc#1062520). - CVE-2017-15274: security/keys/keyctl.c in the Linux kernel did not consider the case of a NULL payload in conjunction with a nonzero length value, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted add_key or keyctl system call, a different vulnerability than CVE-2017-12192 (bnc#1045327). - CVE-2017-15868: The bnep_add_connection function in net/bluetooth/bnep/core.c in the Linux kernel did not ensure that an l2cap socket is available, which allowed local users to gain privileges via a crafted application (bnc#1071470). -

CVE-2017-16939: The XFRM dump policy implementation in net/xfrm/xfrm_user.c in the Linux kernel allowed 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 (bnc#1069702 1069708). - CVE-2017-17450: net/netfilter/xt_osf.c in the Linux kernel did not require the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for add_callback and remove_callback operations, which allowed local users to bypass intended access restrictions because the xt_osf_fingers data structure is shared across all net namespaces (bnc#1071695 1074033). - CVE-2017-17558: The usb_destroy_configuration function in drivers/usb/core/config.c in the USB core subsystem in the Linux kernel did not consider the maximum number of configurations and interfaces before attempting to release resources, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device (bnc#1072561). -

  • NASL family Huawei Local Security Checks
    NASL id EULEROS_SA-2017-1245.NASL
    description According to the versions of the kernel packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities : - The iscsi_if_rx function in drivers/scsi/scsi_transport_iscsi.c in the Linux kernel through 4.13.2 allows local users to cause a denial of service (panic) by leveraging incorrect length validation.(CVE-2017-14489) - The move_pages system call in mm/migrate.c in the Linux kernel before 4.12.9 doesn't check the effective uid of the target process, enabling a local attacker to learn the memory layout of a setuid executable despite ASLR.(CVE-2017-14140) - The offset2lib patch as used in the Linux Kernel contains a vulnerability that allows a PIE binary to be execve()'ed with 1GB of arguments or environmental strings then the stack occupies the address 0x80000000 and the PIE binary is mapped above 0x40000000 nullifying the protection of the offset2lib patch. This affects Linux Kernel version 4.11.5 and earlier. This is a different issue than CVE-2017-1000371. This issue appears to be limited to i386 based systems.(CVE-2017-1000370) - Race condition in fs/timerfd.c in the Linux kernel before 4.10.15 allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (list corruption or use-after-free) via simultaneous file-descriptor operations that leverage improper might_cancel queueing.(CVE-2017-10661) - The acpi_ns_evaluate() function in drivers/acpi/acpica/nseval.c in the Linux kernel through 4.12.9 does not flush the operand cache and causes a kernel stack dump, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory and bypass the KASLR protection mechanism (in the kernel through 4.9) via a crafted ACPI table.(CVE-2017-13695) - The acpi_ps_complete_final_op() function in drivers/acpi/acpica/psobject.c in the Linux kernel through 4.12.9 does not flush the node and node_ext caches and causes a kernel stack dump, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory and bypass the KASLR protection mechanism (in the kernel through 4.9) via a crafted ACPI table.(CVE-2017-13694) - The acpi_ds_create_operands() function in drivers/acpi/acpica/dsutils.c in the Linux kernel through 4.12.9 does not flush the operand cache and causes a kernel stack dump, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory and bypass the KASLR protection mechanism (in the kernel through 4.9) via a crafted ACPI table.(CVE-2017-13693) - The tcp_disconnect function in net/ipv4/tcp.c in the Linux kernel before 4.12 allows local users to cause a denial of service (__tcp_select_window divide-by-zero error and system crash) by triggering a disconnect within a certain tcp_recvmsg code path.(CVE-2017-14106) - The native Bluetooth stack in the Linux Kernel (BlueZ), starting at the Linux kernel version 3.3-rc1 and up to and including 4.13.1, are vulnerable to a stack overflow vulnerability in the processing of L2CAP configuration responses resulting in Remote code execution in kernel space.(CVE-2017-1000251 - ) - The prepare_vmcs02 function in arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the Linux kernel through 4.13.3 does not ensure that the 'CR8-load exiting' and 'CR8-store exiting' L0 vmcs02 controls exist in cases where L1 omits the 'use TPR shadow' vmcs12 control, which allows KVM L2 guest OS users to obtain read and write access to the hardware CR8 register.(CVE-2017-12154) 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.

    NASL id VIRTUOZZO_VZA-2017-076.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 : - 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. - Race condition in fs/timerfd.c in the Linux kernel before 4.10.15 allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (list corruption or use-after-free) via simultaneous file-descriptor operations that leverage improper might_cancel queueing. - 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. - Andrey Konovalov discovered a race condition in the UDP Fragmentation Offload (UFO) code in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. - 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 we believe it is unlikely. - 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. - The tcp_disconnect function in net/ipv4/tcp.c in the Linux kernel before 4.12 allows local users to cause a denial of service (__tcp_select_window divide-by-zero error and system crash) by triggering a disconnect within a certain tcp_recvmsg code path. 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.

  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DSA-3981.NASL
    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to privilege escalation, denial of service or information leaks. - CVE-2017-7518 Andy Lutomirski discovered that KVM is prone to an incorrect debug exception (#DB) error occurring while emulating a syscall instruction. A process inside a guest can take advantage of this flaw for privilege escalation inside a guest. - CVE-2017-7558 (stretch only) Stefano Brivio of Red Hat discovered that the SCTP subsystem is prone to a data leak vulnerability due to an out-of-bounds read flaw, allowing to leak up to 100 uninitialized bytes to userspace. - CVE-2017-10661 (jessie only) Dmitry Vyukov of Google reported that the timerfd facility does not properly handle certain concurrent operations on a single file descriptor. This allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service or potentially execute arbitrary code. - CVE-2017-11600 Bo Zhang reported that the xfrm subsystem does not properly validate one of the parameters to a netlink message. Local users with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability can use this to cause a denial of service or potentially to execute arbitrary code. - CVE-2017-12134 / #866511 / XSA-229 Jan H. Schoenherr of Amazon discovered that when Linux is running in a Xen PV domain on an x86 system, it may incorrectly merge block I/O requests. A buggy or malicious guest may trigger this bug in dom0 or a PV driver domain, causing a denial of service or potentially execution of arbitrary code. This issue can be mitigated by disabling merges on the underlying back-end block devices, e.g.:echo 2 > /sys/block/nvme0n1/queue/nomerges - CVE-2017-12146 (stretch only) Adrian Salido of Google reported a race condition in access to the'driver_override' attribute for platform devices in sysfs. If unprivileged users are permitted to access this attribute, this might allow them to gain privileges. - CVE-2017-12153 Bo Zhang reported that the cfg80211 (wifi) subsystem does not properly validate the parameters to a netlink message. Local users with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability (in any user namespace with a wifi device) can use this to cause a denial of service. - CVE-2017-12154 Jim Mattson of Google reported that the KVM implementation for Intel x86 processors did not correctly handle certain nested hypervisor configurations. A malicious guest (or nested guest in a suitable L1 hypervisor) could use this for denial of service. - CVE-2017-14106 Andrey Konovalov discovered that a user-triggerable division by zero in the tcp_disconnect() function could result in local denial of service. - CVE-2017-14140 Otto Ebeling reported that the move_pages() system call performed insufficient validation of the UIDs of the calling and target processes, resulting in a partial ASLR bypass. This made it easier for local users to exploit vulnerabilities in programs installed with the set-UID permission bit set. - CVE-2017-14156 'sohu0106' reported an information leak in the atyfb video driver. A local user with access to a framebuffer device handled by this driver could use this to obtain sensitive information. - CVE-2017-14340 Richard Wareing discovered that the XFS implementation allows the creation of files with the 'realtime' flag on a filesystem with no realtime device, which can result in a crash (oops). A local user with access to an XFS filesystem that does not have a realtime device can use this for denial of service. - CVE-2017-14489 ChunYu Wang of Red Hat discovered that the iSCSI subsystem does not properly validate the length of a netlink message, leading to memory corruption. A local user with permission to manage iSCSI devices can use this for denial of service or possibly to execute arbitrary code. - CVE-2017-14497 (stretch only) Benjamin Poirier of SUSE reported that vnet headers are not properly handled within the tpacket_rcv() function in the raw packet (af_packet) feature. A local user with the CAP_NET_RAW capability can take advantage of this flaw to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow, and disk and memory corruption) or have other impact. - CVE-2017-1000111 Andrey Konovalov of Google reported a race condition in the raw packet (af_packet) feature. Local users with the CAP_NET_RAW capability can use this for denial of service or possibly to execute arbitrary code. - CVE-2017-1000112 Andrey Konovalov of Google reported a race condition flaw in the UDP Fragmentation Offload (UFO) code. A local user can use this flaw for denial of service or possibly to execute arbitrary code. - CVE-2017-1000251 / #875881 Armis Labs discovered that the Bluetooth subsystem does not properly validate L2CAP configuration responses, leading to a stack-based buffer overflow. This is one of several vulnerabilities dubbed 'Blueborne'. A nearby attacker can use this to cause a denial of service or possibly to execute arbitrary code on a system with Bluetooth enabled. - CVE-2017-1000252 (stretch only) Jan H. Schoenherr of Amazon reported that the KVM implementation for Intel x86 processors did not correctly validate interrupt injection requests. A local user with permission to use KVM could use this for denial of service. - CVE-2017-1000370 The Qualys Research Labs reported that a large argument or environment list can result in ASLR bypass for 32-bit PIE binaries. - CVE-2017-1000371 The Qualys Research Labs reported that a large argument or environment list can result in a stack/heap clash for 32-bit PIE binaries. - CVE-2017-1000380 Alexander Potapenko of Google reported a race condition in the ALSA (sound) timer driver, leading to an information leak. A local user with permission to access sound devices could use this to obtain sensitive information. Debian disables unprivileged user namespaces by default, but if they are enabled (via the kernel.unprivileged_userns_clone sysctl) then CVE-2017-11600, CVE-2017-14497 and CVE-2017-1000111 can be exploited by any local user.

  • 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.

    description According to the version of the vzkernel package and the readykernel-patch installed, the Virtuozzo installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities : - 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. - The __ip6_append_data function in net/ipv6/ip6_output.c in the Linux kernel through 4.11.3 is too late in checking whether an overwrite of an skb data structure may occur, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via crafted system calls. - 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. 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.

As a result, up to 100 bytes of the slab data could be leaked to a userspace. - The __ip6_append_data function in net/ipv6/ip6_output.c in the Linux kernel through 4.11.3 is too late in checking whether an overwrite of an skb data structure may occur, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via crafted system calls. - 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. 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 From Red Hat Security Advisory 2017:3200 : 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 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) : * 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 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 Willem de Bruijn for reporting CVE-2017-1000111 and Andrey Konovalov for reporting CVE-2017-1000112. Bug Fix(es) : * When the operating system was booted with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, and the eh_deadline sysfs parameter was set to 10s, the Storage Area Network (SAN) issues caused eh_deadline to trigger with no handler. Consequently, a kernel panic occurred. This update fixes the lpfc driver, thus preventing the kernel panic under described circumstances. (BZ #1487220) * When an NFS server returned the NFS4ERR_BAD_SEQID error to an OPEN request, the open-owner was removed from the state_owners rbtree. Consequently, NFS4 client infinite loop that required a reboot to recover occurred. This update changes NFS4ERR_BAD_SEQID handling to leave the open-owner in the state_owners rbtree by updating the create_time parameter so that it looks like a new open-owner. As a result, an NFS4 client is now able to recover without falling into the infinite recovery loop after receiving NFS4ERR_BAD_SEQID. (BZ#1491123) * If an NFS client attempted to mount NFSv3 shares from an NFS server exported directly to the client's IP address, and this NFS client had already mounted other shares that originated from the same server but were exported to the subnetwork which this client was part of, the auth.unix.ip cache expiration was not handled correctly. Consequently, the client received the 'stale file handle' errors when trying to mount the share. This update fixes handling of the cache expiration, and the NFSv3 shares now mount as expected without producing the 'stale file handle' errors. (BZ #1497976) * When running a script that raised the tx ring count to its maximum value supported by the Solarflare Network Interface Controller (NIC) driver, the EF10 family NICs allowed the settings exceeding the hardware's capability. Consequently, the Solarflare hardware became unusable with Red Hat Entepripse Linux 6. This update fixes the sfc driver, so that the tx ring can have maximum 2048 entries for all EF10 NICs. As a result, the Solarflare hardware no longer becomes unusable with Red Hat Entepripse Linux 6 due to this bug. (BZ#1498019)

  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DLA-1099.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-2017-7482 Shi Lei discovered that RxRPC Kerberos 5 ticket handling code does not properly verify metadata, leading to information disclosure, denial of service or potentially execution of arbitrary code. CVE-2017-7542 An integer overflow vulnerability in the ip6_find_1stfragopt() function was found allowing a local attacker with privileges to open raw sockets to cause a denial of service. CVE-2017-7889 Tommi Rantala and Brad Spengler reported that the mm subsystem does not properly enforce the CONFIG_STRICT_DEVMEM protection mechanism, allowing a local attacker with access to /dev/mem to obtain sensitive information or potentially execute arbitrary code. CVE-2017-10661 Dmitry Vyukov of Google reported that the timerfd facility does not properly handle certain concurrent operations on a single file descriptor. This allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service or potentially to execute arbitrary code. CVE-2017-10911 / XSA-216 Anthony Perard of Citrix discovered an information leak flaw in Xen blkif response handling, allowing a malicious unprivileged guest to obtain sensitive information from the host or other guests. CVE-2017-11176 It was discovered that the mq_notify() function does not set the sock pointer to NULL upon entry into the retry logic. An attacker can take advantage of this flaw during a userspace close of a Netlink socket to cause a denial of service or potentially cause other impact. CVE-2017-11600 bo Zhang reported that the xfrm subsystem does not properly validate one of the parameters to a netlink message. Local users with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability can use this to cause a denial of service or potentially to execute arbitrary code. CVE-2017-12134 / #866511 / XSA-229 Jan H. Schönherr of Amazon discovered that when Linux is running in a Xen PV domain on an x86 system, it may incorrectly merge block I/O requests. A buggy or malicious guest may trigger this bug in dom0 or a PV driver domain, causing a denial of service or potentially execution of arbitrary code. This issue can be mitigated by disabling merges on the underlying back-end block devices, e.g.: echo 2 > /sys/block/nvme0n1/queue/nomerges CVE-2017-12153 bo Zhang reported that the cfg80211 (wifi) subsystem does not properly validate the parameters to a netlink message. Local users with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability on a system with a wifi device can use this to cause a denial of service. CVE-2017-12154 Jim Mattson of Google reported that the KVM implementation for Intel x86 processors did not correctly handle certain nested hypervisor configurations. A malicious guest (or nested guest in a suitable L1 hypervisor) could use this for denial of service. CVE-2017-14106 Andrey Konovalov of Google reported that a specific sequence of operations on a TCP socket could lead to division by zero. A local user could use this for denial of service. CVE-2017-14140 Otto Ebeling reported that the move_pages() system call permitted users to discover the memory layout of a set-UID process running under their real user-ID. This made it easier for local users to exploit vulnerabilities in programs installed with the set-UID permission bit set. CVE-2017-14156 'sohu0106' reported an information leak in the atyfb video driver. A local user with access to a framebuffer device handled by this driver could use this to obtain sensitive information. CVE-2017-14340 Richard Wareing discovered that the XFS implementation allows the creation of files with the 'realtime' flag on a filesystem with no realtime device, which can result in a crash (oops). A local user with access to an XFS filesystem that does not have a realtime device can use this for denial of service. CVE-2017-14489 ChunYu of Red Hat discovered that the iSCSI subsystem does not properly validate the length of a netlink message, leading to memory corruption. A local user with permission to manage iSCSI devices can use this for denial of service or possibly to execute arbitrary code. CVE-2017-1000111 Andrey Konovalov of Google reported that a race condition in the raw packet (af_packet) feature. Local users with the CAP_NET_RAW capability can use this to cause a denial of service or possibly to execute arbitrary code. CVE-2017-1000251 / #875881 Armis Labs discovered that the Bluetooth subsystem does not properly validate L2CAP configuration responses, leading to a stack buffer overflow. This is one of several vulnerabilities dubbed 'Blueborne'. A nearby attacker can use this to cause a denial of service or possibly to execute arbitrary code on a system with Bluetooth enabled. CVE-2017-1000363 Roee Hay reported that the lp driver does not properly bounds-check passed arguments. This has no security impact in Debian. CVE-2017-1000365 It was discovered that argument and environment pointers are not properly taken into account by the size restrictions on arguments and environmental strings passed through execve(). A local attacker can take advantage of this flaw in conjunction with other flaws to execute arbitrary code. CVE-2017-1000380 Alexander Potapenko of Google reported a race condition in the ALSA (sound) timer driver, leading to an information leak. A local user with permission to access sound devices could use this to obtain sensitive information. For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 3.2.93-1. This version also includes bug fixes from upstream versions up to and including 3.2.93. For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 3.16.43-2+deb8u4 or were fixed in an earlier version. For Debian 9 'Stretch', these problems have been fixed in version 4.9.30-2+deb9u4 or were fixed in an earlier version. 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 id OPENSUSE-2017-1062.NASL
    description The openSUSE Leap 42.2 kernel was updated to 4.4.87 to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2017-1000251: The native Bluetooth stack in the Linux Kernel (BlueZ) was vulnerable to a stack overflow vulnerability in the processing of L2CAP configuration responses resulting in Remote code execution in kernel space (bnc#1057389). - CVE-2017-14106: The tcp_disconnect function in net/ipv4/tcp.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (__tcp_select_window divide-by-zero error and system crash) by triggering a disconnect within a certain tcp_recvmsg code path (bnc#1056982). - CVE-2017-11472: The acpi_ns_terminate() function in drivers/acpi/acpica/nsutils.c in the Linux kernel did not flush the operand cache and causes a kernel stack dump, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory and bypass the KASLR protection mechanism (in the kernel through 4.9) via a crafted ACPI table (bnc#1049580). - CVE-2017-14051: An integer overflow in the qla2x00_sysfs_write_optrom_ctl function in drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/qla_attr.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) by leveraging root access (bnc#1056588). - CVE-2017-12134: The xen_biovec_phys_mergeable function in drivers/xen/biomerge.c in Xen might allow local OS guest users to corrupt block device data streams and consequently obtain sensitive memory information, cause a denial of service, or gain host OS privileges by leveraging incorrect block IO merge-ability calculation (bnc#1051790 1053919).

  • 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.

    NASL id SUSE_SU-2017-2920-1.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 GA LTS kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2017-15649: net/packet/af_packet.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges via crafted system calls that trigger mishandling of packet_fanout data structures, because of a race condition (involving fanout_add and packet_do_bind) that leads to a use-after-free, a different vulnerability than CVE-2017-6346 (bnc#1064388). - CVE-2015-9004: kernel/events/core.c in the Linux kernel mishandled counter grouping, which allowed local users to gain privileges via a crafted application, related to the perf_pmu_register and perf_event_open functions (bnc#1037306). - CVE-2016-10229: udp.c in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via UDP traffic that triggers an unsafe second checksum calculation during execution of a recv system call with the MSG_PEEK flag (bnc#1032268). - CVE-2016-9604: The handling of keyrings starting with '.' in KEYCTL_JOIN_SESSION_KEYRING, which could have allowed local users to manipulate privileged keyrings, was fixed (bsc#1035576) - CVE-2017-1000363: Linux drivers/char/lp.c Out-of-Bounds Write. Due to a missing bounds check, and the fact that parport_ptr integer is static, a 'secure boot' kernel command line adversary (can happen due to bootloader vulns, e.g. Google Nexus 6's CVE-2016-10277, where due to a vulnerability the adversary has partial control over the command line) can overflow the parport_nr array in the following code, by appending many (>LP_NO) 'lp=none' arguments to the command line (bnc#1039456). - CVE-2017-1000365: The Linux Kernel imposes a size restriction on the arguments and environmental strings passed through RLIMIT_STACK/RLIM_INFINITY (1/4 of the size), but did not take the argument and environment pointers into account, which allowed attackers to bypass this limitation. (bnc#1039354). - CVE-2017-1000380: sound/core/timer.c in the Linux kernel is vulnerable to a data race in the ALSA /dev/snd/timer driver resulting in local users being able to read information belonging to other users, i.e., uninitialized memory contents may be disclosed when a read and an ioctl happen at the same time (bnc#1044125). - CVE-2017-10661: Race condition in fs/timerfd.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (list corruption or use-after-free) via simultaneous file-descriptor operations that leverage improper might_cancel queueing (bnc#1053152). - CVE-2017-11176: The mq_notify function in the Linux kernel did not set the sock pointer to NULL upon entry into the retry logic. During a user-space close of a Netlink socket, it allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free) or possibly have unspecified other impact (bnc#1048275). - CVE-2017-12153: A security flaw was discovered in the nl80211_set_rekey_data() function in net/wireless/nl80211.c in the Linux kernel This function did not check whether the required attributes are present in a Netlink request. This request can be issued by a user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability and may result in a NULL pointer dereference and system crash (bnc#1058410). - CVE-2017-12154: The prepare_vmcs02 function in arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the Linux kernel did not ensure that the 'CR8-load exiting' and 'CR8-store exiting' L0 vmcs02 controls exist in cases where L1 omits the 'use TPR shadow' vmcs12 control, which allowed KVM L2 guest OS users to obtain read and write access to the hardware CR8 register (bnc#1058507). - CVE-2017-12762: In /drivers/isdn/i4l/isdn_net.c: A user-controlled buffer is copied into a local buffer of constant size using strcpy without a length check which can cause a buffer overflow. (bnc#1053148). - CVE-2017-13080: Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA and WPA2) allowed reinstallation of the Group Temporal Key (GTK) during the group key handshake, allowing an attacker within radio range to replay frames from access points to clients (bnc#1063667). - CVE-2017-14051: An integer overflow in the qla2x00_sysfs_write_optrom_ctl function in drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/qla_attr.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) by leveraging root access (bnc#1056588). - CVE-2017-14106: The tcp_disconnect function in net/ipv4/tcp.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (__tcp_select_window divide-by-zero error and system crash) by triggering a disconnect within a certain tcp_recvmsg code path (bnc#1056982). - CVE-2017-14140: The move_pages system call in mm/migrate.c in the Linux kernel doesn't check the effective uid of the target process, enabling a local attacker to learn the memory layout of a setuid executable despite ASLR (bnc#1057179). - CVE-2017-15265: Use-after-free vulnerability in the Linux kernel allowed local users to have unspecified impact via vectors related to /dev/snd/seq (bnc#1062520). - CVE-2017-15274: security/keys/keyctl.c in the Linux kernel did not consider the case of a NULL payload in conjunction with a nonzero length value, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted add_key or keyctl system call, a different vulnerability than CVE-2017-12192 (bnc#1045327). - CVE-2017-2647: The KEYS subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via vectors involving a NULL value for a certain match field, related to the keyring_search_iterator function in keyring.c (bnc#1030593). - CVE-2017-6951: The keyring_search_aux function in security/keys/keyring.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a request_key system call for the 'dead' type (bnc#1029850). - CVE-2017-7482: A potential memory corruption was fixed in decoding of krb5 principals in the kernels kerberos handling. (bnc#1046107). - CVE-2017-7487: The ipxitf_ioctl function in net/ipx/af_ipx.c in the Linux kernel mishandled reference counts, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (use-after-free) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a failed SIOCGIFADDR ioctl call for an IPX interface (bnc#1038879). - CVE-2017-7518: The Linux kernel was vulnerable to an incorrect debug exception(#DB) error. It could occur while emulating a syscall instruction and potentially lead to guest privilege escalation. (bsc#1045922). - CVE-2017-7541: The brcmf_cfg80211_mgmt_tx function in drivers/net/wireless/broadcom/brcm80211/brcmfmac/cfg8021 1.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via a crafted NL80211_CMD_FRAME Netlink packet (bnc#1049645). - CVE-2017-7542: The ip6_find_1stfragopt function in net/ipv6/output_core.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (integer overflow and infinite loop) by leveraging the ability to open a raw socket (bnc#1049882). - CVE-2017-7889: The mm subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly enforce the CONFIG_STRICT_DEVMEM protection mechanism, which allowed local users to read or write to kernel memory locations in the first megabyte (and bypass slab-allocation access restrictions) via an application that opens the /dev/mem file, related to arch/x86/mm/init.c and drivers/char/mem.c (bnc#1034405). - CVE-2017-8106: The handle_invept function in arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the Linux kernel 3.12 allowed privileged KVM guest OS users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and host OS crash) via a single-context INVEPT instruction with a NULL EPT pointer (bnc#1035877). - CVE-2017-8831: The saa7164_bus_get function in drivers/media/pci/saa7164/saa7164-bus.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access) or possibly have unspecified other impact by changing a certain sequence-number value, aka a 'double fetch' vulnerability (bnc#1037994). - CVE-2017-8890: The inet_csk_clone_lock function in net/ipv4/inet_connection_sock.c in the Linux kernel allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (double free) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging use of the accept system call (bnc#1038544). - CVE-2017-8924: The edge_bulk_in_callback function in drivers/usb/serial/io_ti.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive information (in the dmesg ringbuffer and syslog) from uninitialized kernel memory by using a crafted USB device (posing as an io_ti USB serial device) to trigger an integer underflow (bnc#1037182 bsc#1038982). - CVE-2017-8925: The omninet_open function in drivers/usb/serial/omninet.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (tty exhaustion) by leveraging reference count mishandling (bnc#1037183 bsc#1038981). - CVE-2017-9074: The IPv6 fragmentation implementation in the Linux kernel did not consider that the nexthdr field may be associated with an invalid option, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and BUG) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted socket and send system calls (bnc#1039882). - CVE-2017-9075: The sctp_v6_create_accept_sk function in net/sctp/ipv6.c in the Linux kernel mishandled inheritance, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted system calls, a related issue to CVE-2017-8890 (bnc#1039883). - CVE-2017-9076: The dccp_v6_request_recv_sock function in net/dccp/ipv6.c in the Linux kernel mishandled inheritance, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted system calls, a related issue to CVE-2017-8890 (bnc#1039885). - CVE-2017-9077: The tcp_v6_syn_recv_sock function in net/ipv6/tcp_ipv6.c in the Linux kernel mishandled inheritance, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted system calls, a related issue to CVE-2017-8890 (bnc#1040069). - CVE-2017-9242: The __ip6_append_data function in net/ipv6/ip6_output.c in the Linux kernel is too late in checking whether an overwrite of an skb data structure may occur, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via crafted system calls (bnc#1041431). 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 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)

(CVE-2017-14106, Moderate) Bug Fix(es) : - When the operating system was booted with RHEV/oVirt, and the eh_deadline sysfs parameter was set to 10s, the Storage Area Network (SAN) issues caused eh_deadline to trigger with no handler. Consequently, a kernel panic occurred. This update fixes the lpfc driver, thus preventing the kernel panic under described circumstances. - When an NFS server returned the NFS4ERR_BAD_SEQID error to an OPEN request, the open-owner was removed from the state_owners rbtree. Consequently, NFS4 client infinite loop that required a reboot to recover occurred. This update changes NFS4ERR_BAD_SEQID handling to leave the open-owner in the state_owners rbtree by updating the create_time parameter so that it looks like a new open-owner. As a result, an NFS4 client is now able to recover without falling into the infinite recovery loop after receiving NFS4ERR_BAD_SEQID. - If an NFS client attempted to mount NFSv3 shares from an NFS server exported directly to the client's IP address, and this NFS client had already mounted other shares that originated from the same server but were exported to the subnetwork which this client was part of, the auth.unix.ip cache expiration was not handled correctly. Consequently, the client received the 'stale file handle' errors when trying to mount the share. This update fixes handling of the cache expiration, and the NFSv3 shares now mount as expected without producing the 'stale file handle' errors. - When running a script that raised the tx ring count to its maximum value supported by the Solarflare Network Interface Controller (NIC) driver, the EF10 family NICs allowed the settings exceeding the hardware's capability. Consequently, the Solarflare hardware became unusable with Scientific Linux 6. This update fixes the sfc driver, so that the tx ring can have maximum 2048 entries for all EF10 NICs. As a result, the Solarflare hardware no longer becomes unusable.

This update provides the corresponding updates for the Linux Hardware Enablement (HWE) kernel from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Jan H. Schonherr discovered that the Xen subsystem did not properly handle block IO merges correctly in some situations. An attacker in a guest vm could use this to cause a denial of service (host crash) or possibly gain administrative privileges in the host. (CVE-2017-12134) Andrey Konovalov discovered that a divide-by-zero error existed in the TCP stack implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2017-14106) Otto Ebeling discovered that the memory manager in the Linux kernel did not properly check the effective UID in some situations. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2017-14140). 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 family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_SU-2018-0011-1.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP4 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. This update adds mitigations for various side channel attacks against modern CPUs that could disclose content of otherwise unreadable memory (bnc#1068032). - CVE-2017-5753: Local attackers on systems with modern CPUs featuring deep instruction pipelining could use attacker controllable speculative execution over code patterns in the Linux Kernel to leak content from otherwise not readable memory in the same address space, allowing retrieval of passwords, cryptographic keys and other secrets. This problem is mitigated by adding speculative fencing on affected code paths throughout the Linux kernel. This issue is addressed for the x86_64, the IBM Power and IBM zSeries architecture. - CVE-2017-5715: Local attackers on systems with modern CPUs featuring branch prediction could use mispredicted branches to speculatively execute code patterns that in turn could be made to leak other non-readable content in the same address space, an attack similar to CVE-2017-5753. This problem is mitigated by disabling predictive branches, depending on CPU architecture either by firmware updates and/or fixes in the user-kernel privilege boundaries. This is done with help of Linux Kernel fixes on the Intel/AMD x86_64 and IBM zSeries architectures. On x86_64, this requires also updates of the CPU microcode packages, delivered in separate updates. For IBM Power and zSeries the required firmware updates are supplied over regular channels by IBM. As this feature can have a performance impact, it can be disabled using the 'nospec' kernel commandline option. - CVE-2017-5754: Local attackers on systems with modern CPUs featuring deep instruction pipelining could use code patterns in userspace to speculative executive code that would read otherwise read protected memory, an attack similar to CVE-2017-5753. This problem is mitigated by unmapping the Linux Kernel from the user address space during user code execution, following a approach called 'KAISER'. The terms used here are 'KAISER' / 'Kernel Address Isolation' and 'PTI' / 'Page Table Isolation'. This update does this on the Intel x86_64 and IBM Power architecture. Updates are also necessary for the ARM architecture, but will be delivered in the next round of updates. This feature can be enabled / disabled by the 'pti=[on|off|auto]' or 'nopti' commandline options. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2017-17806: The HMAC implementation (crypto/hmac.c) in the Linux kernel did 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-based buffer overflow by executing a crafted sequence of system calls that encounter a missing SHA-3 initialization (bnc#1073874). - CVE-2017-17805: The Salsa20 encryption algorithm in the Linux kernel did 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 (bnc#1073792). - CVE-2017-15868: The bnep_add_connection function in net/bluetooth/bnep/core.c in the Linux kernel did not ensure that an l2cap socket is available, which allowed local users to gain privileges via a crafted application (bnc#1071470). - CVE-2017-13167: An elevation of privilege vulnerability in the kernel sound timer. (bnc#1072876). - CVE-2017-16538: drivers/media/usb/dvb-usb-v2/lmedm04.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (general protection fault and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device, related to a missing warm-start check and incorrect attach timing (dm04_lme2510_frontend_attach versus dm04_lme2510_tuner) (bnc#1066569). - CVE-2017-17558: The usb_destroy_configuration function in drivers/usb/core/config.c in the USB core subsystem in the Linux kernel did not consider the maximum number of configurations and interfaces before attempting to release resources, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device (bnc#1072561). - CVE-2017-17450: net/netfilter/xt_osf.c in the Linux kernel did not require the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for add_callback and remove_callback operations, which allowed local users to bypass intended access restrictions because the xt_osf_fingers data structure is shared across all net namespaces (bnc#1071695). - CVE-2017-8824: The dccp_disconnect function in net/dccp/proto.c in the Linux kernel allowed 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 (bnc#1070771). - CVE-2017-16939: The XFRM dump policy implementation in net/xfrm/xfrm_user.c in the Linux kernel allowed 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 (bnc#1069702). - CVE-2017-15115: The sctp_do_peeloff function in net/sctp/socket.c in the Linux kernel did not check whether the intended netns is used in a peel-off action, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (use-after-free and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted system calls (bnc#1068671). - CVE-2017-14106: The tcp_disconnect function in net/ipv4/tcp.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (__tcp_select_window divide-by-zero error and system crash) by triggering a disconnect within a certain tcp_recvmsg code path (bnc#1056982). - CVE-2017-11600: net/xfrm/xfrm_policy.c in the Linux kernel through 4.12.3, when CONFIG_XFRM_MIGRATE is enabled, did not ensure that the dir value of xfrm_userpolicy_id is XFRM_POLICY_MAX or less, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via an XFRM_MSG_MIGRATE xfrm Netlink message (bnc#1050231). - CVE-2017-7472: The KEYS subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a series of KEY_REQKEY_DEFL_THREAD_KEYRING keyctl_set_reqkey_keyring calls (bnc#1034862). - CVE-2017-16534: The cdc_parse_cdc_header function in drivers/usb/core/message.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device (bnc#1066693). 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 The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP2 kernel was updated to 4.4.90 to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2017-1000252: The KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (assertion failure, and hypervisor hang or crash) via an out-of bounds guest_irq value, related to arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c and virt/kvm/eventfd.c (bnc#1058038). - CVE-2017-10810: Memory leak in the virtio_gpu_object_create function in drivers/gpu/drm/virtio/virtgpu_object.c in the Linux kernel allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering object-initialization failures (bnc#1047277). - CVE-2017-11472: The acpi_ns_terminate() function in drivers/acpi/acpica/nsutils.c in the Linux kernel did not flush the operand cache and causes a kernel stack dump, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory and bypass the KASLR protection mechanism (in the kernel through 4.9) via a crafted ACPI table (bnc#1049580). - CVE-2017-11473: Buffer overflow in the mp_override_legacy_irq() function in arch/x86/kernel/acpi/boot.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges via a crafted ACPI table (bnc#1049603). - CVE-2017-12134: The xen_biovec_phys_mergeable function in drivers/xen/biomerge.c in Xen might allow local OS guest users to corrupt block device data streams and consequently obtain sensitive memory information, cause a denial of service, or gain host OS privileges by leveraging incorrect block IO merge-ability calculation (bnc#1051790 bnc#1053919). - CVE-2017-12153: A security flaw was discovered in the nl80211_set_rekey_data() function in net/wireless/nl80211.c in the Linux kernel This function did not check whether the required attributes are present in a Netlink request. This request can be issued by a user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability and may result in a NULL pointer dereference and system crash (bnc#1058410). - CVE-2017-12154: The prepare_vmcs02 function in arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the Linux kernel did not ensure that the 'CR8-load exiting' and 'CR8-store exiting' L0 vmcs02 controls exist in cases where L1 omits the 'use TPR shadow' vmcs12 control, which allowed KVM L2 guest OS users to obtain read and write access to the hardware CR8 register (bnc#1058507). - CVE-2017-13080: Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA and WPA2) allowed reinstallation of the Group Temporal Key (GTK) during the group key handshake, allowing an attacker within radio range to replay frames from access points to clients (bnc#1063667). - CVE-2017-14051: An integer overflow in the qla2x00_sysfs_write_optrom_ctl function in drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/qla_attr.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) by leveraging root access (bnc#1056588). - CVE-2017-14106: The tcp_disconnect function in net/ipv4/tcp.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (__tcp_select_window divide-by-zero error and system crash) by triggering a disconnect within a certain tcp_recvmsg code path (bnc#1056982). - CVE-2017-14489: The iscsi_if_rx function in drivers/scsi/scsi_transport_iscsi.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (panic) by leveraging incorrect length validation (bnc#1059051). - CVE-2017-15649: net/packet/af_packet.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges via crafted system calls that trigger mishandling of packet_fanout data structures, because of a race condition (involving fanout_add and packet_do_bind) that leads to a use-after-free, a different vulnerability than CVE-2017-6346 (bnc#1064388). - CVE-2017-7518: The Linux kernel was vulnerable to an incorrect debug exception(#DB) error. It could occur while emulating a syscall instruction and potentially lead to guest privilege escalation. (bsc#1045922). - CVE-2017-7541: The brcmf_cfg80211_mgmt_tx function in drivers/net/wireless/broadcom/brcm80211/brcmfmac/cfg8021 1.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via a crafted NL80211_CMD_FRAME Netlink packet (bnc#1049645). - CVE-2017-7542: The ip6_find_1stfragopt function in net/ipv6/output_core.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (integer overflow and infinite loop) by leveraging the ability to open a raw socket (bnc#1049882). - CVE-2017-8831: The saa7164_bus_get function in drivers/media/pci/saa7164/saa7164-bus.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access) or possibly have unspecified other impact by changing a certain sequence-number value, aka a 'double fetch' vulnerability (bnc#1037994). 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.
