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

  • 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-2017-14140: The move_pages system call in mm/migrate.c in the Linux kernel didn'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-2017-14340: The XFS_IS_REALTIME_INODE macro in fs/xfs/xfs_linux.h in the Linux kernel did not verify that a filesystem has a realtime device, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via vectors related to setting an RHINHERIT flag on a directory (bnc#1058524). - 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). -

    description According to the versions of the kernel packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities : - A vulnerability was found in the key management subsystem of the Linux kernel. An update on an uninstantiated key could cause a kernel panic, leading to denial of service (DoS).(CVE-2017-15299) - It was found that fanout_add() in 'net/packet/af_packet.c' in the Linux kernel, before version 4.13.6, allows 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 bug.(CVE-2017-15649) - The keyctl_read_key function in security/keys/keyctl.c in the Key Management subcomponent in the Linux kernel before 4.13.5 does not properly consider that a key may be possessed but negatively instantiated, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS and system crash) via a crafted KEYCTL_READ operation.(CVE-2017-12192) - The Linux kernel built with the KVM visualization support (CONFIG_KVM), with nested visualization(nVMX) feature enabled (nested=1), was vulnerable to a stack buffer overflow issue. The vulnerability could occur while traversing guest page table entries to resolve guest virtual address(gva). An L1 guest could use this flaw to crash the host kernel resulting in denial of service (DoS) or potentially execute arbitrary code on the host to gain privileges on the system.(CVE-2017-12188) - The imon_probe function in drivers/media/rc/imon.c in the Linux kernel through 4.13.11 allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device.(CVE-2017-16537) - drivers/media/usb/dvb-usb-v2/lmedm04.c in the Linux kernel through 4.13.11 allows 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).(CVE-2017-16538) - The cx231xx_usb_probe function in drivers/media/usb/cx231xx/cx231xx-cards.c in the Linux kernel through 4.13.11 allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device.(CVE-2017-16536) - The usb_get_bos_descriptor function in drivers/usb/core/config.c in the Linux kernel before 4.13.10 allows 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.(CVE-2017-16535) - The cdc_parse_cdc_header function in drivers/usb/core/message.c in the Linux kernel before 4.13.6 allows 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.(CVE-2017-16534) - The usbhid_parse function in drivers/hid/usbhid/hid-core.c in the Linux kernel before 4.13.8 allows 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.(CVE-2017-16533) - The get_endpoints function in drivers/usb/misc/usbtest.c in the Linux kernel through 4.13.11 allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device.(CVE-2017-16532) - drivers/usb/core/config.c in the Linux kernel before 4.13.6 allows 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, related to the USB_DT_INTERFACE_ASSOCIATION descriptor.(CVE-2017-16531) - The uas driver in the Linux kernel before 4.13.6 allows 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, related to drivers/usb/storage/uas-detect.h and drivers/usb/storage/uas.c.(CVE-2017-16530) - The snd_usb_create_streams function in sound/usb/card.c in the Linux kernel before 4.13.6 allows 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.(CVE-2017-16529) - sound/core/seq_device.c in the Linux kernel before 4.13.4 allows local users to cause a denial of service (snd_rawmidi_dev_seq_free use-after-free and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device.(CVE-2017-16528) - sound/usb/mixer.c in the Linux kernel before 4.13.8 allows local users to cause a denial of service (snd_usb_mixer_interrupt use-after-free and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device.(CVE-2017-16527) - drivers/uwb/uwbd.c in the Linux kernel before 4.13.6 allows 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.(CVE-2017-16526) - The usb_serial_console_disconnect function in drivers/usb/serial/console.c in the Linux kernel before 4.13.8 allows local users to cause a denial of service (use-after-free and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device, related to disconnection and failed setup.(CVE-2017-16525) Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory.

  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DLA-1200.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-2016-10208 Sergej Schumilo and Ralf Spenneberg discovered that a crafted ext4 filesystem could trigger memory corruption when it is mounted. A user that can provide a device or filesystem image to be mounted could use this for denial of service (crash or data corruption) or possibly for privilege escalation. CVE-2017-8824 Mohamed Ghannam discovered that the DCCP implementation did not correctly manage resources when a socket is disconnected and reconnected, potentially leading to a use-after-free. A local user could use this for denial of service (crash or data corruption) or possibly for privilege escalation. On systems that do not already have the dccp module loaded, this can be mitigated by disabling it: echo >> /etc/modprobe.d/disable-dccp.conf install dccp false CVE-2017-8831 Pengfei Wang discovered that the saa7164 video capture driver re-reads data from a PCI device after validating it. A physically present user able to attach a specially designed PCI device could use this for privilege escalation. CVE-2017-12190 Vitaly Mayatskikh discovered that the block layer did not correctly count page references for raw I/O from user-space. This can be exploited by a guest VM with access to a host SCSI device for denial of service (memory exhaustion) or potentially for privilege escalation. CVE-2017-13080 A vulnerability was found in the WPA2 protocol that could lead to reinstallation of the same Group Temporal Key (GTK), which substantially reduces the security of wifi encryption. This is one of the issues collectively known as 'KRACK'. Updates to GTKs are usually handled by the wpa package, where this issue was already fixed (DLA-1150-1). However, some wifi devices can remain active and update GTKs autonomously while the system is suspended. The kernel must also check for and ignore key reinstallation. CVE-2017-14051 'shqking' reported that the qla2xxx SCSI host driver did not correctly validate I/O to the 'optrom' sysfs attribute of the devices it creates. This is unlikely to have any security impact. CVE-2017-15115 Vladis Dronov reported that the SCTP implementation did not correctly handle 'peel-off' of an association to another net namespace. This leads to a use-after-free, which a local user can exploit for denial of service (crash or data corruption) or possibly for privilege escalation. On systems that do not already have the sctp module loaded, this can be mitigated by disabling it: echo >> /etc/modprobe.d/disable-sctp.conf install sctp false CVE-2017-15265 Michael23 Yu reported a race condition in the ALSA sequencer subsystem involving creation and deletion of ports, which could lead to a use-after-free.

    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 kernel was updated to 3.12.61 to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - 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-2017-1000405: The Linux Kernel had a problematic use of pmd_mkdirty() in the touch_pmd() function inside the THP implementation. touch_pmd() could be reached by get_user_pages(). In such case, the pmd would become dirty. This scenario breaks the new can_follow_write_pmd()'s logic - pmd could become dirty without going through a COW cycle. This bug was not as severe as the original 'Dirty cow' because an ext4 file (or any other regular file) could not be mapped using THP. Nevertheless, it did allow us to overwrite read-only huge pages. For example, the zero huge page and sealed shmem files could be overwritten (since their mapping could be populated using THP). Note that after the first write page-fault to the zero page, it will be replaced with a new fresh (and zeroed) thp (bnc#1069496 1070307). - CVE-2017-16649: The usbnet_generic_cdc_bind function in drivers/net/usb/cdc_ether.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (divide-by-zero error and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device (bnc#1067085). - CVE-2014-0038: The compat_sys_recvmmsg function in net/compat.c in the Linux kernel, when CONFIG_X86_X32 is enabled, allowed local users to gain privileges via a recvmmsg system call with a crafted timeout pointer parameter (bnc#860993). - CVE-2017-16650: The qmi_wwan_bind function in drivers/net/usb/qmi_wwan.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (divide-by-zero error and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device (bnc#1067086). - CVE-2017-16535: The usb_get_bos_descriptor function in drivers/usb/core/config.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#1066700). - 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-2017-16531: drivers/usb/core/config.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, related to the USB_DT_INTERFACE_ASSOCIATION descriptor (bnc#1066671). - CVE-2017-12193: The assoc_array_insert_into_terminal_node function in lib/assoc_array.c in the Linux kernel mishandled node splitting, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and panic) via a crafted application, as demonstrated by the keyring key type, and key addition and link creation operations (bnc#1066192). - CVE-2017-16529: The snd_usb_create_streams function in sound/usb/card.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#1066650). - CVE-2017-16525: The usb_serial_console_disconnect function in drivers/usb/serial/console.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (use-after-free and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device, related to disconnection and failed setup (bnc#1066618). - CVE-2017-16537: The imon_probe function in drivers/media/rc/imon.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device (bnc#1066573). - CVE-2017-16536: The cx231xx_usb_probe function in drivers/media/usb/cx231xx/cx231xx-cards.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device (bnc#1066606). - CVE-2017-16527: sound/usb/mixer.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (snd_usb_mixer_interrupt use-after-free and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device (bnc#1066625).
