ID CVE-2018-1092
Summary The ext4_iget function in fs/ext4/inode.c in the Linux kernel through 4.15.15 mishandles the case of a root directory with a zero i_links_count, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service (ext4_process_freed_data NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted ext4 image.

    description An update for kernel-rt is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. The kernel-rt packages provide the Real Time Linux Kernel, which enables fine-tuning for systems with extremely high determinism requirements. Security Fix(es) : * A flaw named FragmentSmack was found in the way the Linux kernel handled reassembly of fragmented IPv4 and IPv6 packets. A remote attacker could use this flaw to trigger time and calculation expensive fragment reassembly algorithm by sending specially crafted packets which could lead to a CPU saturation and hence a denial of service on the system. (CVE-2018-5391) * kernel: out-of-bounds access in the show_timer function in kernel/time/ posix-timers.c (CVE-2017-18344) * kernel: Integer overflow in udl_fb_mmap() can allow attackers to execute code in kernel space (CVE-2018-8781) * kernel: MIDI driver race condition leads to a double-free (CVE-2018-10902) * kernel: Missing check in inode_init_owner() does not clear SGID bit on non-directories for non-members (CVE-2018-13405) * kernel: AIO write triggers integer overflow in some protocols (CVE-2015-8830) * kernel: Use-after-free in snd_pcm_info function in ALSA subsystem potentially leads to privilege escalation (CVE-2017-0861) * kernel: Handling of might_cancel queueing is not properly pretected against race (CVE-2017-10661) * kernel: Salsa20 encryption algorithm does not correctly handle zero-length inputs allowing local attackers to cause denial of service (CVE-2017-17805) * kernel: Inifinite loop vulnerability in madvise_willneed() function allows local denial of service (CVE-2017-18208) * kernel: fuse-backed file mmap-ed onto process cmdline arguments causes denial of service (CVE-2018-1120) * kernel: a NULL pointer dereference in dccp_write_xmit() leads to a system crash (CVE-2018-1130) * kernel: drivers/block/loop.c mishandles lo_release serialization allowing denial of service (CVE-2018-5344) * kernel: Missing length check of payload in _sctp_make_chunk() function allows denial of service (CVE-2018-5803) * kernel: buffer overflow in drivers/net/wireless/ath/wil6210/ wmi.c:wmi_set_ie() may lead to memory corruption (CVE-2018-5848) * kernel: out-of-bound write in ext4_init_block_bitmap function with a crafted ext4 image (CVE-2018-10878) * kernel: Improper validation in bnx2x network card driver can allow for denial of service attacks via crafted packet (CVE-2018-1000026) * kernel: Information leak when handling NM entries containing NUL (CVE-2016-4913) * kernel: Mishandling mutex within libsas allowing local Denial of Service (CVE-2017-18232) * kernel: NULL pointer dereference in ext4_process_freed_data() when mounting crafted ext4 image (CVE-2018-1092) * kernel: NULL pointer dereference in ext4_xattr_inode_hash() causes crash with crafted ext4 image (CVE-2018-1094) * kernel: vhost: Information disclosure in vhost.c:vhost_new_msg() (CVE-2018-1118) * kernel: Denial of service in resv_map_release function in mm/hugetlb.c (CVE-2018-7740) * kernel: Memory leak in the sas_smp_get_phy_events function in drivers/scsi/ libsas/sas_expander.c (CVE-2018-7757) * kernel: Invalid pointer dereference in xfs_ilock_attr_map_shared() when mounting crafted xfs image allowing denial of service (CVE-2018-10322) * kernel: use-after-free detected in ext4_xattr_set_entry with a crafted file (CVE-2018-10879) * kernel: out-of-bound access in ext4_get_group_info() when mounting and operating a crafted ext4 image (CVE-2018-10881) * kernel: stack-out-of-bounds write in jbd2_journal_dirty_metadata function (CVE-2018-10883) * kernel: incorrect memory bounds check in drivers/cdrom/cdrom.c (CVE-2018-10940) Red Hat would like to thank Juha-Matti Tilli (Aalto University - Department of Communications and Networking and Nokia Bell Labs) for reporting CVE-2018-5391; Trend Micro Zero Day Initiative for reporting CVE-2018-10902; Qualys Research Labs for reporting CVE-2018-1120; Evgenii Shatokhin (Virtuozzo Team) for reporting CVE-2018-1130; and Wen Xu for reporting CVE-2018-1092 and CVE-2018-1094.

    NASL id SUSE_SU-2018-1855-2.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP2 LTSS kernel was updated receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : CVE-2018-5848: In the function wmi_set_ie(), the length validation code did not handle unsigned integer overflow properly. As a result, a large value of the 'ie_len' argument could have caused a buffer overflow (bnc#1097356) CVE-2018-1000204: Prevent infoleak caused by incorrect handling of the SG_IO ioctl (bsc#1096728). CVE-2017-18249: The add_free_nid function did not properly track an allocated nid, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (race condition) or possibly have unspecified other impact via concurrent threads (bnc#1087036) CVE-2018-3665: Prevent disclosure of FPU registers (including XMM and AVX registers) between processes. These registers might contain encryption keys when doing SSE accelerated AES enc/decryption (bsc#1087086) CVE-2017-18241: Prevent a NULL pointer dereference by using a noflush_merge option that triggers a NULL value for a flush_cmd_control data structure (bnc#1086400) CVE-2017-13305: Prevent information disclosure vulnerability in encrypted-keys (bsc#1094353). CVE-2018-1093: The ext4_valid_block_bitmap function allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and system crash) via a crafted ext4 image because balloc.c and ialloc.c did not validate bitmap block numbers (bsc#1087095). CVE-2018-1094: The ext4_fill_super function did not always initialize the crc32c checksum driver, which allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (ext4_xattr_inode_hash NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a crafted ext4 image (bsc#1087007). CVE-2018-1092: The ext4_iget function mishandled the case of a root directory with a zero i_links_count, which allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (ext4_process_freed_data NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted ext4 image (bsc#1087012). CVE-2018-1130: NULL pointer dereference in dccp_write_xmit() function that allowed a local user to cause a denial of service by a number of certain crafted system calls (bsc#1092904). CVE-2018-1065: The netfilter subsystem mishandled the case of a rule blob that contains a jump but lacks a user-defined chain, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) by leveraging the CAP_NET_RAW or CAP_NET_ADMIN capability (bsc#1083650). CVE-2018-5803: Prevent error in the '_sctp_make_chunk()' function when handling SCTP packets length that could have been exploited to cause a kernel crash (bnc#1083900). CVE-2018-7492: Prevent NULL pointer dereference in the net/rds/rdma.c __rds_rdma_map() function that allowed local attackers to cause a system panic and a denial-of-service, related to RDS_GET_MR and RDS_GET_MR_FOR_DEST (bsc#1082962). CVE-2018-1000199: Prevent vulnerability in modify_user_hw_breakpoint() that could have caused a crash and possibly memory corruption (bsc#1089895). 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.
