ID CVE-2017-17450
Summary net/netfilter/xt_osf.c in the Linux kernel through 4.14.4 does not require the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for add_callback and remove_callback operations, which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions because the xt_osf_fingers data structure is shared across all net namespaces.

    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). -
