    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2013-0579.NASL
    description An updated rhev-hypervisor6 package that fixes three security issues, various bugs, and adds an enhancement is now available. 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. The rhev-hypervisor6 package provides a Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor ISO disk image. The Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor is a dedicated Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor. It includes everything necessary to run and manage virtual machines: A subset of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating environment and the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Agent. Note: Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor is only available for the Intel 64 and AMD64 architectures with virtualization extensions. A flaw was found in the way the vhost kernel module handled descriptors that spanned multiple regions. A privileged guest user could use this flaw to crash the host or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the host. (CVE-2013-0311) It was found that the default SCSI command filter does not accommodate commands that overlap across device classes. A privileged guest user could potentially use this flaw to write arbitrary data to a LUN that is passed-through as read-only. (CVE-2012-4542) It was discovered that dnsmasq, when used in combination with certain libvirtd configurations, could incorrectly process network packets from network interfaces that were intended to be prohibited. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service via DNS amplification attacks. (CVE-2012-3411) The CVE-2012-4542 issue was discovered by Paolo Bonzini of Red Hat. This updated package provides updated components that include fixes for several security issues. These issues had no security impact on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor itself, however. The security fixes included in this update address the following CVE numbers : CVE-2012-3955 (dhcp issue) CVE-2011-4355 (gdb issue) CVE-2012-4508, CVE-2013-0190, CVE-2013-0309, and CVE-2013-0310 (kernel issues) CVE-2012-5536 (openssh issue) CVE-2011-3148 and CVE-2011-3149 (pam issues) CVE-2013-0157 (util-linux-ng issue) This updated Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor package also fixes the following bugs : * Previously, the Administration Portal would always display the option to upgrade the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor ISO regardless of whether or not the selected host was up-to-date. Now, the VDSM version compatibility is considered and the upgrade message only displays if there is an upgrade relevant to the host available. (BZ#853092) * An out of date version of libvirt was included in the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor 6.4 package. As a result, virtual machines with supported CPU models were not being properly parsed by libvirt and failed to start. A more recent version of libvirt has been included in this updated hypervisor package. Virtual machines now start normally. (BZ#895078) As well, this update adds the following enhancement : * Hypervisor packages now take advantage of the installonlypkg function provided by yum. This allows for multiple versions of the hypervisor package to be installed on a system concurrently without making changes to the yum configuration as was previously required. (BZ#863579) This update includes the ovirt-node build from RHBA-2013:0556 : https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHBA-2013-0556.html Users of the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes these issues and adds this enhancement.

    description Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in the Linux kernel : The scm_set_cred function in include/net/scm.h in the Linux kernel before 3.8.11 uses incorrect uid and gid values during credentials passing, which allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted application. (CVE-2013-1979) The nr_recvmsg function in net/netrom/af_netrom.c in the Linux kernel before 3.9-rc7 does not initialize a certain data structure, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call. (CVE-2013-3232) net/tipc/socket.c in the Linux kernel before 3.9-rc7 does not initialize a certain data structure and a certain length variable, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call. (CVE-2013-3235) The rose_recvmsg function in net/rose/af_rose.c in the Linux kernel before 3.9-rc7 does not initialize a certain data structure, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call. (CVE-2013-3234) The llcp_sock_recvmsg function in net/nfc/llcp/sock.c in the Linux kernel before 3.9-rc7 does not initialize a certain length variable and a certain data structure, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call. (CVE-2013-3233) The llc_ui_recvmsg function in net/llc/af_llc.c in the Linux kernel before 3.9-rc7 does not initialize a certain length variable, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

    title Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : kernel (MDVSA-2013:176)
  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2013-0882.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2 Extended Update Support. 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. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. This update fixes the following security issues : * A flaw was found in the way the vhost kernel module handled descriptors that spanned multiple regions. A privileged guest user in a KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) guest could use this flaw to crash the host or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the host. (CVE-2013-0311, Important) * A flaw was found in the way the KVM subsystem handled guests attempting to run with the X86_CR4_OSXSAVE CPU feature flag set. On hosts without the XSAVE CPU feature, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the host system. (The 'grep --color xsave /proc/cpuinfo' command can be used to verify if your system has the XSAVE CPU feature.) (CVE-2012-4461, Moderate) * It was found that the default SCSI command filter does not accommodate commands that overlap across device classes. A privileged guest user could potentially use this flaw to write arbitrary data to a LUN that is passed-through as read-only. (CVE-2012-4542, Moderate) * A use-after-free flaw was found in the tmpfs implementation. A local user able to mount and unmount a tmpfs file system could use this flaw to cause a denial of service or, potentially, escalate their privileges. (CVE-2013-1767, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Jon Howell for reporting CVE-2012-4461. CVE-2012-4542 was discovered by Paolo Bonzini of Red Hat. This update also fixes the following bugs : * Previously, when open(2) system calls were processed, the GETATTR routine did not check to see if valid attributes were also returned. As a result, the open() call succeeded with invalid attributes instead of failing in such a case. This update adds the missing check, and the open() call succeeds only when valid attributes are returned. (BZ#960409) * Previously, the fsync(2) system call incorrectly returned the EIO (Input/Output) error instead of the ENOSPC (No space left on device) error. This was due to incorrect error handling in the page cache. This problem has been fixed and the correct error value is now returned. (BZ#960418) * In the RPC code, when a network socket backed up due to high network traffic, a timer was set causing a retransmission, which in turn could cause an even larger amount of network traffic to be generated. To prevent this problem, the RPC code now waits for the socket to empty instead of setting the timer. (BZ#960423) * This update fixes a number of bugs in the be2iscsi driver for ServerEngines BladeEngine 2 Open iSCSI devices. (BZ#955502) Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

(CVE-2013-0216) A memory leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's Xen netback (network backend) driver. A user in a guest OS could trigger this flaw to cause a denial of service on the system. (CVE-2013-0217) Andrew Jones discovered a flaw with the xen_iret function in Linux kernel's Xen virtualizeation. In the 32-bit Xen paravirt platform an unprivileged guest OS user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (crash the system) or gain guest OS privilege. (CVE-2013-0228) A flaw was reported in the permission checks done by the Linux kernel for /dev/cpu/*/msr. A local root user with all capabilities dropped could exploit this flaw to execute code with full root capabilities. (CVE-2013-0268) A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel's vhost driver used to accelerate guest networking in KVM based virtual machines. A privileged guest user could exploit this flaw to crash the host system. (CVE-2013-0311) An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's Bluetooth stack when HIDP (Human Interface Device Protocol) support is enabled.

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2013:0496 : Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues, address several hundred bugs, and add numerous enhancements are now available as part of the ongoing support and maintenance of Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 6. This is the fourth regular update. 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. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. This update fixes the following security issues : * A race condition was found in the way asynchronous I/O and fallocate() interacted when using the ext4 file system. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to expose random data from an extent whose data blocks have not yet been written, and thus contain data from a deleted file. (CVE-2012-4508, Important) * A flaw was found in the way the vhost kernel module handled descriptors that spanned multiple regions. A privileged guest user in a KVM guest could use this flaw to crash the host or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the host. (CVE-2013-0311, Important) * It was found that the default SCSI command filter does not accommodate commands that overlap across device classes. A privileged guest user could potentially use this flaw to write arbitrary data to a LUN that is passed-through as read-only. (CVE-2012-4542, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way the xen_failsafe_callback() function in the Linux kernel handled the failed iret (interrupt return) instruction notification from the Xen hypervisor. An unprivileged user in a 32-bit para-virtualized guest could use this flaw to crash the guest. (CVE-2013-0190, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way pmd_present() interacted with PROT_NONE memory ranges when transparent hugepages were in use. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2013-0309, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way CIPSO (Common IP Security Option) IP options were validated when set from user mode. A local user able to set CIPSO IP options on the socket could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2013-0310, Moderate) Red Hat would like to thank Theodore Ts'o for reporting CVE-2012-4508, and Andrew Cooper of Citrix for reporting CVE-2013-0190. Upstream acknowledges Dmitry Monakhov as the original reporter of CVE-2012-4508. The CVE-2012-4542 issue was discovered by Paolo Bonzini of Red Hat. This update also fixes several hundred bugs and adds enhancements. Refer to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 Release Notes for information on the most significant of these changes, and the Technical Notes for further information, both linked to in the References. All Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 users are advised to install these updated packages, which correct these issues, and fix the bugs and add the enhancements noted in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 Release Notes and Technical Notes. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

  • NASL family CentOS Local Security Checks
    NASL id CENTOS_RHSA-2013-0496.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues, address several hundred bugs, and add numerous enhancements are now available as part of the ongoing support and maintenance of Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 6. This is the fourth regular update. 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. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. This update fixes the following security issues : * A race condition was found in the way asynchronous I/O and fallocate() interacted when using the ext4 file system. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to expose random data from an extent whose data blocks have not yet been written, and thus contain data from a deleted file. (CVE-2012-4508, Important) * A flaw was found in the way the vhost kernel module handled descriptors that spanned multiple regions. A privileged guest user in a KVM guest could use this flaw to crash the host or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the host. (CVE-2013-0311, Important) * It was found that the default SCSI command filter does not accommodate commands that overlap across device classes. A privileged guest user could potentially use this flaw to write arbitrary data to a LUN that is passed-through as read-only. (CVE-2012-4542, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way the xen_failsafe_callback() function in the Linux kernel handled the failed iret (interrupt return) instruction notification from the Xen hypervisor. An unprivileged user in a 32-bit para-virtualized guest could use this flaw to crash the guest. (CVE-2013-0190, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way pmd_present() interacted with PROT_NONE memory ranges when transparent hugepages were in use. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2013-0309, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way CIPSO (Common IP Security Option) IP options were validated when set from user mode. A local user able to set CIPSO IP options on the socket could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2013-0310, Moderate) Red Hat would like to thank Theodore Ts'o for reporting CVE-2012-4508, and Andrew Cooper of Citrix for reporting CVE-2013-0190. Upstream acknowledges Dmitry Monakhov as the original reporter of CVE-2012-4508. The CVE-2012-4542 issue was discovered by Paolo Bonzini of Red Hat. This update also fixes several hundred bugs and adds enhancements. Refer to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 Release Notes for information on the most significant of these changes, and the Technical Notes for further information, both linked to in the References. All Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 users are advised to install these updated packages, which correct these issues, and fix the bugs and add the enhancements noted in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 Release Notes and Technical Notes. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    description Andrew Cooper of Citrix reported a Xen stack corruption in the Linux kernel. An unprivileged user in a 32bit PVOPS guest can cause the guest kernel to crash, or operate erroneously. (CVE-2013-0190) A failure to validate input was discovered in the Linux kernel's Xen netback (network backend) driver. A user in a guest OS may exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service to the guest OS and other guest domains. (CVE-2013-0216) A memory leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's Xen netback (network backend) driver. A user in a guest OS could trigger this flaw to cause a denial of service on the system. (CVE-2013-0217) Andrew Jones discovered a flaw with the xen_iret function in Linux kernel's Xen virtualizeation. In the 32-bit Xen paravirt platform an unprivileged guest OS user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (crash the system) or gain guest OS privilege. (CVE-2013-0228) A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel Xen PCI backend driver. If a PCI device is assigned to the guest OS, the guest OS could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service on the host. (CVE-2013-0231) A flaw was reported in the permission checks done by the Linux kernel for /dev/cpu/*/msr. A local root user with all capabilities dropped could exploit this flaw to execute code with full root capabilities. (CVE-2013-0268) A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel's vhost driver used to accelerate guest networking in KVM based virtual machines. A privileged guest user could exploit this flaw to crash the host system. (CVE-2013-0311) A flaw was discovered in the Extended Verification Module (EVM) of the Linux kernel. An unprivileged local user code exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2013-0313) An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's Bluetooth stack when HIDP (Human Interface Device Protocol) support is enabled. A local unprivileged user could exploit this flaw to cause an information leak from the kernel. (CVE-2013-0349) A flaw was discovered in the Edgeort USB serial converter driver when the device is disconnected while it is in use. A local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2013-1774). 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.

    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 Extended Update Support. 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. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. This update fixes the following security issues : * A flaw was found in the way the vhost kernel module handled descriptors that spanned multiple regions. A privileged guest user in a KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) guest could use this flaw to crash the host or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the host. (CVE-2013-0311, Important) * A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way UTF-8 characters were converted to UTF-16 in the utf8s_to_utf16s() function of the Linux kernel's FAT file system implementation. A local user able to mount a FAT file system with the 'utf8=1' option could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2013-1773, Important) * A flaw was found in the way KVM handled guest time updates when the buffer the guest registered by writing to the MSR_KVM_SYSTEM_TIME machine state register (MSR) crossed a page boundary. A privileged guest user could use this flaw to crash the host or, potentially, escalate their privileges, allowing them to execute arbitrary code at the host kernel level. (CVE-2013-1796, Important) * A potential use-after-free flaw was found in the way KVM handled guest time updates when the GPA (guest physical address) the guest registered by writing to the MSR_KVM_SYSTEM_TIME machine state register (MSR) fell into a movable or removable memory region of the hosting user-space process (by default, QEMU-KVM) on the host. If that memory region is deregistered from KVM using KVM_SET_USER_MEMORY_REGION and the allocated virtual memory reused, a privileged guest user could potentially use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the host. (CVE-2013-1797, Important) * A flaw was found in the way KVM emulated IOAPIC (I/O Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller). A missing validation check in the ioapic_read_indirect() function could allow a privileged guest user to crash the host, or read a substantial portion of host kernel memory. (CVE-2013-1798, Important) * It was found that the default SCSI command filter does not accommodate commands that overlap across device classes. A privileged guest user could potentially use this flaw to write arbitrary data to a LUN that is passed-through as read-only. (CVE-2012-4542, Moderate) * A use-after-free flaw was found in the tmpfs implementation. A local user able to mount and unmount a tmpfs file system could use this flaw to cause a denial of service or, potentially, escalate their privileges. (CVE-2013-1767, Low) * A format string flaw was found in the ext3_msg() function in the Linux kernel's ext3 file system implementation. A local user who is able to mount an ext3 file system could use this flaw to cause a denial of service or, potentially, escalate their privileges. (CVE-2013-1848, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Andrew Honig of Google for reporting the CVE-2013-1796, CVE-2013-1797, and CVE-2013-1798 issues. The CVE-2012-4542 issue was discovered by Paolo Bonzini of Red Hat. This update also fixes several bugs. Documentation for these changes will be available shortly from the Technical Notes document linked to in the References section. Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.
