ID CVE-2013-3301
Summary The ftrace implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.8.8 allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging the CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability for write access to the (1) set_ftrace_pid or (2) set_graph_function file, and then making an lseek system call.

  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2013-1264.NASL
    description Updated kernel-rt packages that fix several security issues and multiple bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.3. 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-rt packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. This update fixes the following security issues : * A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the Linux kernel's iSCSI target subsystem. A remote attacker could use a specially crafted iSCSI request to cause a denial of service on a system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on that system. (CVE-2013-2850, Important) * A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's Performance Events implementation. On systems with certain Intel processors, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service by leveraging the perf subsystem to write into the reserved bits of the OFFCORE_RSP_0 and OFFCORE_RSP_1 model-specific registers. (CVE-2013-2146, Moderate) * An invalid pointer dereference flaw was found in the Linux kernel's TCP/IP protocol suite implementation. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system by using sendmsg() with an IPv6 socket connected to an IPv4 destination. (CVE-2013-2232, Moderate) * Two flaws were found in the way the Linux kernel's TCP/IP protocol suite implementation handled IPv6 sockets that used the UDP_CORK option. A local, unprivileged user could use these flaws to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2013-4162, CVE-2013-4163, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's Chipidea USB driver. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2013-2058, Low) * Information leak flaws in the Linux kernel could allow a privileged, local user to leak kernel memory to user-space. (CVE-2013-2147, CVE-2013-2164, CVE-2013-2234, CVE-2013-2237, Low) * Information leak flaws in the Linux kernel could allow a local, unprivileged user to leak kernel memory to user-space. (CVE-2013-2141, CVE-2013-2148, Low) * A format string flaw was found in the Linux kernel's block layer. A privileged, local user could potentially use this flaw to escalate their privileges to kernel level (ring0). (CVE-2013-2851, Low) * A format string flaw was found in the b43_do_request_fw() function in the Linux kernel's b43 driver implementation. A local user who is able to specify the 'fwpostfix' b43 module parameter could use this flaw to cause a denial of service or, potentially, escalate their privileges. (CVE-2013-2852, Low) * A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the Linux kernel's ftrace and function tracer implementations. A local user who has the CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2013-3301, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Kees Cook for reporting CVE-2013-2850, CVE-2013-2851, and CVE-2013-2852; and Hannes Frederic Sowa for reporting CVE-2013-4162 and CVE-2013-4163. This update also fixes the following bugs : * The following drivers have been updated, fixing a number of bugs: myri10ge, bna, enic, mlx4, bgmac, bcma, cxgb3, cxgb4, qlcnic, r8169, be2net, e100, e1000, e1000e, igb, ixgbe, brcm80211, cpsw, pch_gbe, bfin_mac, bnx2x, bnx2, cnic, tg3, and sfc. (BZ#974138) * The realtime kernel was not built with the CONFIG_NET_DROP_WATCH kernel configuration option enabled. As such, attempting to run the dropwatch command resulted in the following error : Unable to find NET_DM family, dropwatch can't work Cleaning up on socket creation error With this update, the realtime kernel is built with the CONFIG_NET_DROP_WATCH option, allowing dropwatch to work as expected. (BZ#979417) Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which upgrade the kernel-rt kernel to version kernel-rt-3.6.11.5-rt37, and correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    description The bt_sock_recvmsg function in net/bluetooth/af_bluetooth.c in the Linux kernel before 3.9-rc7 does not properly 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. The udf_encode_fh function in fs/udf/namei.c in the Linux kernel before 3.6 does not initialize a certain structure member, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel heap memory via a crafted application. The ftrace implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.8.8 allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging the CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability for write access to the (1) set_ftrace_pid or (2) set_graph_function file, and then making an lseek system call. The rtnl_fill_ifinfo function in net/core/rtnetlink.c in the Linux kernel before 3.8.4 does not initialize a certain structure member, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted application. The ip6_sk_dst_check function in net/ipv6/ip6_output.c in the Linux kernel before 3.10 allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) by using an AF_INET6 socket for a connection to an IPv4 interface. The tcp_read_sock function in net/ipv4/tcp.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.34 does not properly manage skb consumption, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a crafted splice system call for a TCP socket. The rfcomm_sock_recvmsg function in net/bluetooth/rfcomm/sock.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. Format string vulnerability in the b43_request_firmware function in drivers/net/wireless/b43/main.c in the Broadcom B43 wireless driver in the Linux kernel through 3.9.4 allows local users to gain privileges by leveraging root access and including format string specifiers in an fwpostfix modprobe parameter, leading to improper construction of an error message. The (1) key_notify_sa_flush and (2) key_notify_policy_flush functions in net/key/af_key.c in the Linux kernel before 3.10 do not initialize certain structure members, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel heap memory by reading a broadcast message from the notify interface of an IPSec key_socket. The vcc_recvmsg function in net/atm/common.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. The flush_signal_handlers function in kernel/signal.c in the Linux kernel before 3.8.4 preserves the value of the sa_restorer field across an exec operation, which makes it easier for local users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism via a crafted application containing a sigaction system call. net/dcb/dcbnl.c in the Linux kernel before 3.8.4 does not initialize certain structures, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted application. fs/ext3/super.c in the Linux kernel before 3.8.4 uses incorrect arguments to functions in certain circumstances related to printk input, which allows local users to conduct format-string attacks and possibly gain privileges via a crafted application. net/ceph/auth_none.c in the Linux kernel through 3.10 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via an auth_reply message that triggers an attempted build_request operation.

  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DSA-2669.NASL
    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service, information leak or privilege escalation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2013-0160 vladz reported a timing leak with the /dev/ptmx character device. A local user could use this to determine sensitive information such as password length. - CVE-2013-1796 Andrew Honig of Google reported an issue in the KVM subsystem. A user in a guest operating system could corrupt kernel memory, resulting in a denial of service. - CVE-2013-1929 Oded Horovitz and Brad Spengler reported an issue in the device driver for Broadcom Tigon3 based gigabit Ethernet. Users with the ability to attach untrusted devices can create an overflow condition, resulting in a denial of service or elevated privileges. - CVE-2013-1979 Andy Lutomirski reported an issue in the socket level control message processing subsystem. Local users may be able to gain eleveated privileges. - CVE-2013-2015 Theodore Ts'o provided a fix for an issue in the ext4 filesystem. Local users with the ability to mount a specially crafted filesystem can cause a denial of service (infinite loop). - CVE-2013-2094 Tommie Rantala discovered an issue in the perf subsystem. An out-of-bounds access vulnerability allows local users to gain elevated privileges. - CVE-2013-3076 Mathias Krause discovered an issue in the userspace interface for hash algorithms. Local users can gain access to sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2013-3222 Mathias Krause discovered an issue in the Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) protocol support. Local users can gain access to sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2013-3223 Mathias Krause discovered an issue in the Amateur Radio AX.25 protocol support. Local users can gain access to sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2013-3224 Mathias Krause discovered an issue in the Bluetooth subsystem. Local users can gain access to sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2013-3225 Mathias Krause discovered an issue in the Bluetooth RFCOMM protocol support. Local users can gain access to sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2013-3227 Mathias Krause discovered an issue in the Communication CPU to Application CPU Interface (CAIF). Local users can gain access to sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2013-3228 Mathias Krause discovered an issue in the IrDA (infrared) subsystem support. Local users can gain access to sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2013-3229 Mathias Krause discovered an issue in the IUCV support on s390 systems. Local users can gain access to sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2013-3231 Mathias Krause discovered an issue in the ANSI/IEEE 802.2 LLC type 2 protocol support. Local users can gain access to sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2013-3234 Mathias Krause discovered an issue in the Amateur Radio X.25 PLP (Rose) protocol support. Local users can gain access to sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2013-3235 Mathias Krause discovered an issue in the Transparent Inter Process Communication (TIPC) protocol support. Local users can gain access to sensitive kernel memory. - CVE-2013-3301 Namhyung Kim reported an issue in the tracing subsystem. A privileged local user could cause a denial of service (system crash). This vulnerabililty is not applicable to Debian systems by default.
