ID CVE-2011-4131
Summary The NFSv4 implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.2.2 does not properly handle bitmap sizes in GETACL replies, which allows remote NFS servers to cause a denial of service (OOPS) by sending an excessive number of bitmap words.

    description This update fixes the following security issues : - It was found that a previous update did not correctly fix the CVE-2011-4131 issue. A malicious Network File System version 4 (NFSv4) server could return a crafted reply to a GETACL request, causing a denial of service on the client. (CVE-2012-2375, Moderate) - A divide-by-zero flaw was found in the TCP Illinois congestion control algorithm implementation in the Linux kernel. If the TCP Illinois congestion control algorithm were in use (the sysctl net.ipv4.tcp_congestion_control variable set to 'illinois'), a local, unprivileged user could trigger this flaw and cause a denial of service. (CVE-2012-4565, Moderate) - A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way a new node's hot added memory was propagated to other nodes' zonelists. By utilizing this newly added memory from one of the remaining nodes, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2012-5517, Moderate) - It was found that the initial release of Scientific Linux 6 did not correctly fix the CVE-2009-4307 issue, a divide-by-zero flaw in the ext4 file system code. A local, unprivileged user with the ability to mount an ext4 file system could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2012-2100, Low) - A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's IPv6 implementation handled overlapping, fragmented IPv6 packets. A remote attacker could potentially use this flaw to bypass protection mechanisms (such as a firewall or intrusion detection system (IDS)) when sending network packets to a target system. (CVE-2012-4444, Low) The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

  • NASL family Oracle Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2012-2022.NASL
    description Description of changes: * Avoid bug caused by corrupted Ext4 filesystem. When mounting an ext4 filesystem, the kernel was not checking for zero length extents. This would cause a BUG_ON assertion failure in the log. * NULL pointer dereference in the SCSI subsystem. A NULL dereference may occur if a SCSI device is physically removed without being logically removed from the system. This would lead to a NULL dereference since the revalidation routine assumed the device is always present while it runs. * Resource leak in USB networking driver. The usbnet core incorrectly cleared a pointer to the underlying device resulting in a resource leak when unlinking requests. * Inode corruption in XFS inode lookup. The XFS inode cache did not correctly initialize the inode before insertion into the cache which could result in corruption when racing with an inode lookup. * Kernel crash in SUNRPC cache management. Many SUNRPC cache implementations would not handle a zero-length string resulting in a kernel panic. * Unbalanced locking in VFS non-local alias search. A code path responsible for finding aliases on a non-local filesystem did not correctly release a lock resulting in a system hang. * Memory corruption on nfsd shutdown. A race condition between closing down a SUNRPC transport and enqueueing data could result in a use-after-free condition resulting in a denial-of-service or privilege escalation. * NULL pointer dereference with misconfigured USB FTDI devices. A USB FTDI without a manufacturer string would result in a NULL pointer dereference and kernel crash when the device was plugged in. * Kernel information leak in X86 ptrace TLS regset. The TLS lookup could run off the end of the descriptor list reading from kernel memory. * Divide-by-zero in NTP. Integer overflow in NTP when setting the time could result in a divide-by-zero and kernel panic. * CVE-2011-4127: KVM privilege escalation through insufficient validation in SG_IO ioctl. Using the SG_IO IOCTL to issue SCSI requests to partitions or LVM volumes resulted in the requests being passed to the underlying block device. If a privileged user only had access to a single partition or LVM volume, they could use this flaw to bypass those restrictions and gain read and write access (and be able to issue other SCSI commands) to the entire block device. In KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) environments using raw format virtio disks backed by a partition or LVM volume, a privileged guest user could bypass intended restrictions and issue read and write requests (and other SCSI commands) on the host, and possibly access the data of other guests that reside on the same underlying block device. * CVE-2012-2384: Integer overflow in Intel i915 command processing. An integer overflow in the Intel i915 family display driver could cause memory corruption on 32-bit systems. * Correctly merge virtual memory areas when binding. When mbind() is called for adjacent areas, they are expected to be merged into a single virtual memory area. * Small UDP packets dropped on transmission consistently in vmxnet3. Small (<54 byte) packets will get dropped consistently on transmission due to an error in the optimization of the code. * CVE-2011-4131: Kernel crash in NFSv4. nfs4_getfacl decoding causes a kernel crash when a server returns more than 2 GETATTR bitmap words in response to the FATTR4_ACL attribute request.

    description Updated kernel-rt packages that fix multiple security issues and various bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.1. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. These packages contain the Linux kernel. Security fixes : * SG_IO ioctl SCSI requests on partitions or LVM volumes could be passed to the underlying block device, allowing a privileged user to bypass restrictions and gain read and write access (and be able to issue other SCSI commands) to the entire block device. (CVE-2011-4127, Important) * A local, unprivileged user could use an integer overflow flaw in drm_mode_dirtyfb_ioctl() to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2012-0044, Important) * A local, unprivileged user could use a flaw in the Performance Events implementation to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2011-2918, Moderate) * A local, unprivileged user could use flaws in the XFS file system implementation to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges by mounting a specially crafted disk. (CVE-2011-4077, CVE-2012-0038, Moderate) * A local, unprivileged user could use a flaw in the Out of Memory (OOM) killer to monopolize memory, have their process skipped by the OOM killer, or cause other tasks to be terminated. (CVE-2011-4097, Moderate) * A local, unprivileged user could use a flaw in the key management facility to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2011-4110, Moderate) * A malicious Network File System version 4 (NFSv4) server could return a crafted reply to a GETACL request, causing a denial of service on the client. (CVE-2011-4131, Moderate) * A local attacker could use a flaw in the Journaling Block Device (JBD) to crash the system by mounting a specially crafted ext3 or ext4 disk. (CVE-2011-4132, Moderate) * A flaw in igmp_heard_query() could allow an attacker, who is able to send certain IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) packets to a target system, to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2012-0207, Moderate) * If lock contention during signal sending occurred when in a software interrupt handler that is using the per-CPU debug stack, the task could be scheduled out on the realtime kernel, possibly leading to debug stack corruption. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2012-0810, Moderate) Red Hat would like to thank Chen Haogang for reporting CVE-2012-0044; Wang Xi for reporting CVE-2012-0038; Shubham Goyal for reporting CVE-2011-4097; Andy Adamson for reporting CVE-2011-4131; and Simon McVittie for reporting CVE-2012-0207. Bug fixes : * When a sleeping task, waiting on a futex (fast userspace mutex), tried to get the spin_lock(hb->lock) RT-mutex, if the owner of the futex released the lock, the sleeping task was put on a futex proxy lock. Consequently, the sleeping task was blocked on two locks and eventually terminated in the BUG_ON() function. With this update, the WAKEUP_INPROGRESS pseudo-lock has been added to be used as a proxy lock. This pseudo-lock tells the sleeping task that it is being woken up so that the task no longer tries to get the second lock. Now, the futex code works as expected and sleeping tasks no longer crash in the described scenario. (BZ#784733) * When the CONFIG_CRYPTO_FIPS configuration option was disabled, some services such as sshd and ipsec, while working properly, returned warning messages regarding this missing option during start up. With this update, CONFIG_CRYPTO_FIPS has been enabled and no warning messages are now returned in the described scenario. (BZ#786145) * Previously, when a read operation on a loop device failed, the data successfully read from the device was not cleared and could eventually leak. This bug has been fixed and all data are now properly cleared in the described scenario. (BZ#761420) * Due to an assembler-sourced object, the perf utility (from the perf-rt package) for AMD64 and Intel 64 architectures contained an executable stack. This update adds the '.note.GNU-stack' section definition to the bench/mem-memcpy-x86-64-asm.S component of perf, with all flags disabled, and perf no longer contains an executable stack, thus fixing this bug.

(CVE-2012-2313, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Andy Adamson for reporting CVE-2011-4131, and Stephan Mueller for reporting CVE-2012-2313. Bug fixes : * A kernel oops occurred in the nf_nat code when a bogus pointer was dereferenced in the nf_conn_nat structure. Consequently, if Source Network Address Translation (SNAT) was performed, incorrect information could be received by other CTS (Clear to Send) signals. A conntrack entry is now placed in the source hash after SNAT has been completed, which prevents the described problems. (BZ#865715) * Previously, the ixgbe_setup_tc() function was called recursively when the set_state() CEE (Convergence Enhanced Ethernet) API routine was called in IEEE DCBX (Data Center Bridging eXchange) mode. This is considered unsafe according to the IEEE standards. With this update, the ixgbe driver has been modified to no longer call the set_state() routine in IEEE DCBX mode. The driver now calls routines of the PFC (Priority-based Flow Control) and ETS (Enhanced Transmission Selection) extensions instead of the CEE extension routines in IEEE DCBX mode. (BZ#867859) * A Symmetric Multi Processing (SMP) race condition between the munmap() and exit() function could lead to false-positive triggering of the BUG_ON() macro if Transparent Huge Pages (THP) were enabled. This update fixes the race condition, which avoids false-positive triggering of the BUG_ON() macro in this scenario. (BZ#875121) * The kernel allows high priority real time tasks, such as tasks scheduled with the SCHED_FIFO policy, to be throttled. Previously, the CPU stop tasks were scheduled as high priority real time tasks and could be thus throttled accordingly. However, the replenishment timer, which is responsible for clearing a throttle flag on tasks, could be pending on the just disabled CPU. This could lead to the situation that the throttled tasks were never scheduled to run. Consequently, if any of such tasks was needed to complete the CPU disabling, the system became unresponsive. This update introduces a new scheduler class, which gives a task the highest possible system priority and such a task cannot be throttled. The stop-task scheduling class is now used for the CPU stop tasks, and the system shutdown completes as expected in the scenario described. (BZ#876078) * Previously, XFS log buffers were handled incorrectly so that XFS could, in certain circumstances, incorrectly read metadata from the journal during XFS log recovery. As a consequence, XFS log recovery terminated with an error message and prevented the file system from being mounted. This problem could result in a loss of data if the user forcibly emptied the log to allow the file system to be mounted. This update ensures that metadata is read correctly from the log and journal recovery thus completes successfully, and the file system mounts as expected. (BZ#876498) * Previously, kernel was allowed to reduce the number of unnecessary commit calls by skipping the commit when there was a large number of outstanding pages being written. However, a test on the number of commits (ncommit) did not properly handle the edge case when ncommit was zero. Consequently, inodes sometimes remained on the sb->s_dirty list and could not be freed by the inode cache shrinker. As a result, the nfs_inode_cache structure grew very large over time. With this update, the call to the nfs_write_inode() function is immediately returned when commit == 0, thus fixing this bug. (BZ#877394)

    title CentOS 6 : kernel (CESA-2012:0862)
  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_11_KERNEL-120418.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP2 kernel has been updated to 3.0.26, which fixes a lot of bugs and security issues. The following security issues have been fixed : - A locking problem in transparent hugepage support could be used by local attackers to potentially crash the host, or via kvm a privileged guest user could crash the kvm host system. (CVE-2012-1179) - A potential hypervisor escape by issuing SG_IO commands to partitiondevices was fixed by restricting access to these commands. (CVE-2011-4127) - A local attacker could oops the kernel using memory control groups and eventfds. (CVE-2012-1146) - Limit the path length users can build using epoll() to avoid local attackers consuming lots of kernel CPU time. (CVE-2011-1083) - The regset common infrastructure assumed that regsets would always have .get and .set methods, but necessarily .active methods. Unfortunately people have since written regsets without .set method, so NULL pointer dereference attacks were possible. (CVE-2012-1097) - Access to the /proc/pid/taskstats file requires root access to avoid side channel (timing keypresses etc.) attacks on other users. (CVE-2011-2494) - Fixed a oops in jbd/jbd2 that could be caused by specific filesystem access patterns. (CVE-2011-4086) - A malicious NFSv4 server could have caused a oops in the nfsv4 acl handling. (CVE-2011-4131) - Fixed a oops in jbd/jbd2 that could be caused by mounting a malicious prepared filesystem. (Also included are all fixes from the 3.0.14 -> 3.0.25 stable kernel updates.).
