ID CVE-2014-3690
Summary arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.17.2 on Intel processors does not ensure that the value in the CR4 control register remains the same after a VM entry, which allows host OS users to kill arbitrary processes or cause a denial of service (system disruption) by leveraging /dev/kvm access, as demonstrated by PR_SET_TSC prctl calls within a modified copy of QEMU.

  • NASL family Mandriva Local Security Checks
    NASL id MANDRIVA_MDVSA-2015-058.NASL
    description Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in the Linux kernel : The Crypto API in the Linux kernel before 3.18.5 allows local users to load arbitrary kernel modules via a bind system call for an AF_ALG socket with a module name in the salg_name field, a different vulnerability than CVE-2014-9644 (CVE-2013-7421). arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.17.2 on Intel processors does not ensure that the value in the CR4 control register remains the same after a VM entry, which allows host OS users to kill arbitrary processes or cause a denial of service (system disruption) by leveraging /dev/kvm access, as demonstrated by PR_SET_TSC prctl calls within a modified copy of QEMU (CVE-2014-3690). arch/x86/kernel/tls.c in the Thread Local Storage (TLS) implementation in the Linux kernel through 3.18.1 allows local users to bypass the espfix protection mechanism, and consequently makes it easier for local users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism, via a crafted application that makes a set_thread_area system call and later reads a 16-bit value (CVE-2014-8133). net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_proto_generic.c in the Linux kernel before 3.18 generates incorrect conntrack entries during handling of certain iptables rule sets for the SCTP, DCCP, GRE, and UDP-Lite protocols, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via packets with disallowed port numbers (CVE-2014-8160). The Linux kernel through 3.17.4 does not properly restrict dropping of supplemental group memberships in certain namespace scenarios, which allows local users to bypass intended file permissions by leveraging a POSIX ACL containing an entry for the group category that is more restrictive than the entry for the other category, aka a negative groups issue, related to kernel/groups.c, kernel/uid16.c, and kernel/user_namespace.c (CVE-2014-8989). The __switch_to function in arch/x86/kernel/process_64.c in the Linux kernel through 3.18.1 does not ensure that Thread Local Storage (TLS) descriptors are loaded before proceeding with other steps, which makes it easier for local users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism via a crafted application that reads a TLS base address (CVE-2014-9419). The rock_continue function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel through 3.18.1 does not restrict the number of Rock Ridge continuation entries, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (infinite loop, and system crash or hang) via a crafted iso9660 image (CVE-2014-9420). The batadv_frag_merge_packets function in net/batman-adv/fragmentation.c in the B.A.T.M.A.N. implementation in the Linux kernel through 3.18.1 uses an incorrect length field during a calculation of an amount of memory, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (mesh-node system crash) via fragmented packets (CVE-2014-9428). Race condition in the key_gc_unused_keys function in security/keys/gc.c in the Linux kernel through 3.18.2 allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or panic) or possibly have unspecified other impact via keyctl commands that trigger access to a key structure member during garbage collection of a key (CVE-2014-9529). The parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel before 3.18.2 does not validate a length value in the Extensions Reference (ER) System Use Field, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via a crafted iso9660 image (CVE-2014-9584). The vdso_addr function in arch/x86/vdso/vma.c in the Linux kernel through 3.18.2 does not properly choose memory locations for the vDSO area, which makes it easier for local users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism by guessing a location at the end of a PMD (CVE-2014-9585). The Crypto API in the Linux kernel before 3.18.5 allows local users to load arbitrary kernel modules via a bind system call for an AF_ALG socket with a parenthesized module template expression in the salg_name field, as demonstrated by the vfat(aes) expression, a different vulnerability than CVE-2013-7421 (CVE-2014-9644). Off-by-one error in the ecryptfs_decode_from_filename function in fs/ecryptfs/crypto.c in the eCryptfs subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.18.2 allows local users to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via a crafted filename (CVE-2014-9683). The em_sysenter function in arch/x86/kvm/emulate.c in the Linux kernel before 3.18.5, when the guest OS lacks SYSENTER MSR initialization, allows guest OS users to gain guest OS privileges or cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) by triggering use of a 16-bit code segment for emulation of a SYSENTER instruction (CVE-2015-0239). The updated packages provides a solution for these security issues.

    NASL id SUSE_11_KERNEL-150306.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP3 kernel has been updated to receive various security and bugfixes. New features enabled : - The Ceph and rbd remote network block device drivers are now enabled and supported, to serve as client for SUSE Enterprise Storage 1.0. (FATE#318328) - Support to selected Bay Trail CPUs used in Point of Service Hardware was enabled. (FATE#317933) - Broadwell Legacy Audio, HDMI Audio and DisplayPort Audio support (Audio Driver: HD-A HDMI/DP Audio/HDA Analog/DSP) was enabled. (FATE#317347) The following security bugs have been fixed : - An integer overflow in the stack randomization on 64-bit systems lead to less effective stack ASLR on those systems. (bsc#917839). (CVE-2015-1593) - iptables rules could be bypassed if the specific network protocol module was not loaded, allowing e.g. SCTP to bypass the firewall if the sctp protocol was not enabled. (bsc#913059). (CVE-2014-8160) - A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernels splice() system call validated its parameters. On certain file systems, a local, unprivileged user could have used this flaw to write past the maximum file size, and thus crash the system. (bnc#915322). (CVE-2014-7822) - The __switch_to function in arch/x86/kernel/process_64.c in the Linux kernel did not ensure that Thread Local Storage (TLS) descriptors are loaded before proceeding with other steps, which made it easier for local users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism via a crafted application that reads a TLS base address. (bnc#911326). (CVE-2014-9419) - The parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel did not validate a length value in the Extensions Reference (ER) System Use Field, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via a crafted iso9660 image. (bnc#912654). (CVE-2014-9584) - The vdso_addr function in arch/x86/vdso/vma.c in the Linux kernel did not properly choose memory locations for the vDSO area, which made it easier for local users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism by guessing a location at the end of a PMD. (bnc#912705). (CVE-2014-9585) - The d_walk function in fs/dcache.c in the Linux kernel did not properly maintain the semantics of rename_lock, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (deadlock and system hang) via a crafted application. (bnc#903640). (CVE-2014-8559) - The rock_continue function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel did not restrict the number of Rock Ridge continuation entries, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (infinite loop, and system crash or hang) via a crafted iso9660 image (bsc#911325). (CVE-2014-9420) - The paravirt_ops_setup function in arch/x86/kernel/kvm.c in the Linux kernel used an improper paravirt_enabled setting for KVM guest kernels, which made it easier for guest OS users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism via a crafted application that reads a 16-bit value (bnc#907818 909077 909078). (CVE-2014-8134) - The kvm_iommu_map_pages function in virt/kvm/iommu.c in the Linux kernel miscalculated the number of pages during the handling of a mapping failure, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS page unpinning) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging guest OS privileges. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2014-3601 (bsc#902675). (CVE-2014-8369) - arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel on Intel processors did not ensure that the value in the CR4 control register remains the same after a VM entry, which allowed host OS users to kill arbitrary processes or cause a denial of service (system disruption) by leveraging /dev/kvm access, as demonstrated by PR_SET_TSC prctl calls within a modified copy of QEMU. (bnc#902232). (CVE-2014-3690) - Race condition in arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in the Linux kernel allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) via a crafted application that performs an MMIO transaction or a PIO transaction to trigger a guest userspace emulation error report, a similar issue to CVE-2010-5313. (bnc#905312). (CVE-2014-7842) - The Netlink implementation in the Linux kernel did not provide a mechanism for authorizing socket operations based on the opener of a socket, which allowed local users to bypass intended access restrictions and modify network configurations by using a Netlink socket for the (1) stdout or (2) stderr of a setuid program. (bnc#875051). (CVE-2014-0181) - The SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering a large number of chunks in an associations output queue, as demonstrated by ASCONF probes, related to net/sctp/inqueue.c and net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c. (bnc#902351). (CVE-2014-3688) - The pivot_root implementation in fs/namespace.c in the Linux kernel did not properly interact with certain locations of a chroot directory, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (mount-tree loop) via . (dot) values in both arguments to the pivot_root system call. (bnc#900644). (CVE-2014-7970) - The sctp_assoc_lookup_asconf_ack function in net/sctp/associola.c in the SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via duplicate ASCONF chunks that trigger an incorrect uncork within the side-effect interpreter. (bnc#902349, bnc#904899). (CVE-2014-3687) The following non-security bugs have been fixed : - ACPI idle: permit sparse C-state sub-state numbers (bnc#908550,FATE#317933). - ALSA : hda - not use assigned converters for all unused pins (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - Add Device IDs for Intel Wildcat Point-LP PCH (FATE#317347). - ALSA: hda - Fix onboard audio on Intel H97/Z97 chipsets (FATE#317347). - ALSA: hda - add PCI IDs for Intel BayTrail (FATE#317347). - ALSA: hda - add PCI IDs for Intel Braswell (FATE#317347). - ALSA: hda - add codec ID for Braswell display audio codec (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - add codec ID for Broadwell display audio codec (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - add codec ID for Valleyview2 display codec (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - define is_haswell() to check if a display audio codec is Haswell (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - hdmi: Re-setup pin and infoframe on plug-in on all codecs (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - not choose assigned converters for unused pins of Valleyview (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - rename function not_share_unassigned_cvt() (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - unmute pin amplifier in infoframe setup for Haswell (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - verify pin:converter connection on unsol event for HSW and VLV (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda - verify pin:cvt connection on preparing a stream for Intel HDMI codec (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda/hdmi - apply Valleyview fix-ups to Cherryview display codec (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda/hdmi - apply all Haswell fix-ups to Broadwell display codec (FATE#317933). - ALSA: hda_intel: Add Device IDs for Intel Sunrise Point PCH (FATE#317347). - ALSA: hda_intel: Add DeviceIDs for Sunrise Point-LP (FATE#317347). - Add support for AdvancedSilicon HID multitouch screen (2149:36b1) (FATE#317933). - Disable switching to bootsplash at oops/panic.

    title SuSE 11.3 Security Update : Linux Kernel (SAT Patch Numbers 10412 / 10415 / 10416)
  • NASL family Oracle Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2015-0864.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2015:0864 : Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Red Hat Product Security 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. * A flaw was found in the way seunshare, a utility for running executables under a different security context, used the capng_lock functionality of the libcap-ng library. The subsequent invocation of suid root binaries that relied on the fact that the setuid() system call, among others, also sets the saved set-user-ID when dropping the binaries' process privileges, could allow a local, unprivileged user to potentially escalate their privileges on the system. Note: the fix for this issue is the kernel part of the overall fix, and introduces the PR_SET_NO_NEW_PRIVS functionality and the related SELinux exec transitions support. (CVE-2014-3215, Important) * A use-after-free flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's SCTP implementation handled authentication key reference counting during INIT collisions. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2015-1421, Important) * It was found that the Linux kernel's KVM implementation did not ensure that the host CR4 control register value remained unchanged across VM entries on the same virtual CPU. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service on the system. (CVE-2014-3690, Moderate) * An out-of-bounds memory access flaw was found in the syscall tracing functionality of the Linux kernel's perf subsystem. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-7825, Moderate) * An out-of-bounds memory access flaw was found in the syscall tracing functionality of the Linux kernel's ftrace subsystem. On a system with ftrace syscall tracing enabled, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system, or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2014-7826, Moderate) * It was found that the Linux kernel memory resource controller's (memcg) handling of OOM (out of memory) conditions could lead to deadlocks. An attacker able to continuously spawn new processes within a single memory-constrained cgroup during an OOM event could use this flaw to lock up the system. (CVE-2014-8171, Moderate) * A race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel keys management subsystem performed key garbage collection. A local attacker could attempt accessing a key while it was being garbage collected, which would cause the system to crash. (CVE-2014-9529, Moderate) * A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the TechnoTrend/Hauppauge DEC USB device driver. A local user with write access to the corresponding device could use this flaw to crash the kernel or, potentially, elevate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-8884, Low) * An information leak flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's ISO9660 file system implementation accessed data on an ISO9660 image with RockRidge Extension Reference (ER) records. An attacker with physical access to the system could use this flaw to disclose up to 255 bytes of kernel memory. (CVE-2014-9584, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Andy Lutomirski for reporting CVE-2014-3215 and CVE-2014-3690, Robert Swiecki for reporting CVE-2014-7825 and CVE-2014-7826, and Carl Henrik Lunde for reporting CVE-2014-9584. The CVE-2015-1421 issue was discovered by Sun Baoliang of Red Hat. This update also fixes several bugs. Documentation for these changes is available from the Technical Notes document linked to in the References section. All kernel users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

A local user with access to a /dev/infiniband/uverbsX device could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-8159, Important) * A use-after-free flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's SCTP implementation handled authentication key reference counting during INIT collisions. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2015-1421, Important) * An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Frame Buffer device implementation mapped kernel memory to user space via the mmap syscall. A local user able to access a frame buffer device file (/dev/fb*) could possibly use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2013-2596, Important) * It was found that the Linux kernel's KVM implementation did not ensure that the host CR4 control register value remained unchanged across VM entries on the same virtual CPU. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service on the system. (CVE-2014-3690, Moderate) * It was found that the parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal() function of the Linux kernel's ISOFS implementation did not correctly check relocated directories when processing Rock Ridge child link (CL) tags. An attacker with physical access to the system could use a specially crafted ISO image to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-5471, CVE-2014-5472, Low) * A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the TechnoTrend/Hauppauge DEC USB device driver. A local user with write access to the corresponding device could use this flaw to crash the kernel or, potentially, elevate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-8884, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Mellanox for reporting CVE-2014-8159, and Andy Lutomirski for reporting CVE-2014-3690. The CVE-2015-1421 issue was discovered by Sun Baoliang of Red Hat. This update also fixes the following bugs : * Previously, a NULL pointer check that is needed to prevent an oops in the nfs_async_inode_return_delegation() function was removed. As a consequence, a NFS4 client could terminate unexpectedly. The missing NULL pointer check has been added back, and NFS4 client no longer crashes in this situation. (BZ#1187638) * Due to unbalanced multicast join and leave processing, the attempt to leave a multicast group that had not previously completed a join became unresponsive. This update resolves multiple locking issues in the IPoIB multicast code that allowed multicast groups to be left before the joining was entirely completed. Now, multicast join and leave failures or lockups no longer occur in the described situation. (BZ#1187663) * A failure to leave a multicast group which had previously been joined prevented the attempt to unregister from the 'sa' service. Multiple locking issues in the IPoIB multicast join and leave processing have been fixed so that leaving a group that has completed its join process is successful. As a result, attempts to unregister from the 'sa' service no longer lock up due to leaked resources. (BZ#1187665) * Due to a regression, when large reads which partially extended beyond the end of the underlying device were done, the raw driver returned the EIO error code instead of returning a short read covering the valid part of the device. The underlying source code has been patched, and the raw driver now returns a short read for the remainder of the device. (BZ#1195746) All kernel users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service : - CVE-2014-3610 Lars Bull of Google and Nadav Amit reported a flaw in how KVM handles noncanonical writes to certain MSR registers. A privileged guest user can exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (kernel panic) on the host. - CVE-2014-3611 Lars Bull of Google reported a race condition in the PIT emulation code in KVM. A local guest user with access to PIT i/o ports could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (crash) on the host. - CVE-2014-3645/ CVE-2014-3646 The Advanced Threat Research team at Intel Security discovered that the KVM subsystem did not handle the VM exits gracefully for the invept (Invalidate Translations Derived from EPT) and invvpid (Invalidate Translations Based on VPID) instructions. On hosts with an Intel processor and invept/invppid VM exit support, an unprivileged guest user could use these instructions to crash the guest. - CVE-2014-3647 Nadav Amit reported that KVM mishandles noncanonical addresses when emulating instructions that change rip, potentially causing a failed VM-entry. A guest user with access to I/O or the MMIO can use this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash) of the guest. - CVE-2014-3673 Liu Wei of Red Hat discovered a flaw in net/core/skbuff.c leading to a kernel panic when receiving malformed ASCONF chunks. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system. - CVE-2014-3687 A flaw in the sctp stack was discovered leading to a kernel panic when receiving duplicate ASCONF chunks. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system. - CVE-2014-3688 It was found that the sctp stack is prone to a remotely triggerable memory pressure issue caused by excessive queueing. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause denial-of-service conditions on the system. - CVE-2014-3690 Andy Lutomirski discovered that incorrect register handling in KVM may lead to denial of service. - CVE-2014-7207 Several Debian developers reported an issue in the IPv6 networking subsystem. A local user with access to tun or macvtap devices, or a virtual machine connected to such a device, can cause a denial of service (system crash). This update includes a bug fix related to CVE-2014-7207 that disables UFO (UDP Fragmentation Offload) in the macvtap, tun, and virtio_net drivers.

CVE-2014-3186: Buffer overflow in the picolcd_raw_event function in devices/hid/hid-picolcd_core.c in the PicoLCD HID device driver in the Linux kernel through 3.16.3, as used in Android on Nexus 7 devices, allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted device that sends a large report (bnc#896392). - CVE-2014-3601: The kvm_iommu_map_pages function in virt/kvm/iommu.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 miscalculates the number of pages during the handling of a mapping failure, which allowed guest OS users to (1) cause a denial of service (host OS memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact by triggering a large gfn value or (2) cause a denial of service (host OS memory consumption) by triggering a small gfn value that leads to permanently pinned pages (bnc#892782). - CVE-2014-3610: The WRMSR processing functionality in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 did not properly handle the writing of a non-canonical address to a model-specific register, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) by leveraging guest OS privileges, related to the wrmsr_interception function in arch/x86/kvm/svm.c and the handle_wrmsr function in arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c (bnc#899192). - CVE-2014-3646: arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 did not have an exit handler for the INVVPID instruction, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) via a crafted application (bnc#899192). - CVE-2014-3647: arch/x86/kvm/emulate.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 did not properly perform RIP changes, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) via a crafted application (bnc#899192). - CVE-2014-3673: The SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a malformed ASCONF chunk, related to net/sctp/sm_make_chunk.c and net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c (bnc#902346). - CVE-2014-3687: The sctp_assoc_lookup_asconf_ack function in net/sctp/associola.c in the SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via duplicate ASCONF chunks that trigger an incorrect uncork within the side-effect interpreter (bnc#902349). - CVE-2014-3688: The SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.17.4 allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering a large number of chunks in an associations output queue, as demonstrated by ASCONF probes, related to net/sctp/inqueue.c and net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c (bnc#902351). - CVE-2014-3690: arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.17.2 on Intel processors did not ensure that the value in the CR4 control register remains the same after a VM entry, which allowed host OS users to kill arbitrary processes or cause a denial of service (system disruption) by leveraging /dev/kvm access, as demonstrated by PR_SET_TSC prctl calls within a modified copy of QEMU (bnc#902232). - CVE-2014-4608: Multiple integer overflows in the lzo1x_decompress_safe function in lib/lzo/lzo1x_decompress_safe.c in the LZO decompressor in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 allowed context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a crafted Literal Run (bnc#883948). - CVE-2014-4943: The PPPoL2TP feature in net/l2tp/l2tp_ppp.c in the Linux kernel through 3.15.6 allowed local users to gain privileges by leveraging data-structure differences between an l2tp socket and an inet socket (bnc#887082). - CVE-2014-5471: Stack consumption vulnerability in the parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 allowed local users to cause a denial of service (uncontrolled recursion, and system crash or reboot) via a crafted iso9660 image with a CL entry referring to a directory entry that has a CL entry (bnc#892490). - CVE-2014-5472: The parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 allowed local users to cause a denial of service (unkillable mount process) via a crafted iso9660 image with a self-referential CL entry (bnc#892490). - CVE-2014-7826: kernel/trace/trace_syscalls.c in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 did not properly handle private syscall numbers during use of the ftrace subsystem, which allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference) via a crafted application (bnc#904013). - CVE-2014-7841: The sctp_process_param function in net/sctp/sm_make_chunk.c in the SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.17.4, when ASCONF is used, allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a malformed INIT chunk (bnc#905100). - CVE-2014-7842: Race condition in arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in the Linux kernel before 3.17.4 allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) via a crafted application that performs an MMIO transaction or a PIO transaction to trigger a guest userspace emulation error report, a similar issue to CVE-2010-5313 (bnc#905312). - CVE-2014-8134: The paravirt_ops_setup function in arch/x86/kernel/kvm.c in the Linux kernel through 3.18 uses an improper paravirt_enabled setting for KVM guest kernels, which made it easier for guest OS users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism via a crafted application that reads a 16-bit value (bnc#909078). - CVE-2014-8369: The kvm_iommu_map_pages function in virt/kvm/iommu.c in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 miscalculates the number of pages during the handling of a mapping failure, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS page unpinning) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging guest OS privileges. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2014-3601 (bnc#902675). - CVE-2014-8559: The d_walk function in fs/dcache.c in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 did not properly maintain the semantics of rename_lock, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (deadlock and system hang) via a crafted application (bnc#903640). - CVE-2014-8709: The ieee80211_fragment function in net/mac80211/tx.c in the Linux kernel before 3.13.5 did not properly maintain a certain tail pointer, which allowed remote attackers to obtain sensitive cleartext information by reading packets (bnc#904700). - CVE-2014-9584: The parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel before 3.18.2 did not validate a length value in the Extensions Reference (ER) System Use Field, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via a crafted iso9660 image (bnc#912654). - CVE-2014-9585: The vdso_addr function in arch/x86/vdso/vma.c in the Linux kernel through 3.18.2 did not properly choose memory locations for the vDSO area, which made it easier for local users to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism by guessing a location at the end of a PMD (bnc#912705). 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.

    description Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in the Linux kernel : The WRMSR processing functionality in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 does not properly handle the writing of a non-canonical address to a model-specific register, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) by leveraging guest OS privileges, related to the wrmsr_interception function in arch/x86/kvm/svm.c and the handle_wrmsr function in arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c (CVE-2014-3610). Race condition in the __kvm_migrate_pit_timer function in arch/x86/kvm/i8254.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) by leveraging incorrect PIT emulation (CVE-2014-3611). arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.12 does not have an exit handler for the INVEPT instruction, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) via a crafted application (CVE-2014-3645). arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 does not have an exit handler for the INVVPID instruction, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) via a crafted application (CVE-2014-3646). arch/x86/kvm/emulate.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 does not properly perform RIP changes, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) via a crafted application (CVE-2014-3647). The SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a malformed ASCONF chunk, related to net/sctp/sm_make_chunk.c and net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c (CVE-2014-3673). The sctp_assoc_lookup_asconf_ack function in net/sctp/associola.c in the SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via duplicate ASCONF chunks that trigger an incorrect uncork within the side-effect interpreter (CVE-2014-3687). arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.17.2 on Intel processors does not ensure that the value in the CR4 control register remains the same after a VM entry, which allows host OS users to kill arbitrary processes or cause a denial of service (system disruption) by leveraging /dev/kvm access, as demonstrated by PR_SET_TSC prctl calls within a modified copy of QEMU (CVE-2014-3690). kernel/trace/trace_syscalls.c in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 does not properly handle private syscall numbers during use of the perf subsystem, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and OOPS) or bypass the ASLR protection mechanism via a crafted application (CVE-2014-7825). kernel/trace/trace_syscalls.c in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 does not properly handle private syscall numbers during use of the ftrace subsystem, which allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference) via a crafted application (CVE-2014-7826). The pivot_root implementation in fs/namespace.c in the Linux kernel through 3.17 does not properly interact with certain locations of a chroot directory, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (mount-tree loop) via . (dot) values in both arguments to the pivot_root system call (CVE-2014-7970). The kvm_iommu_map_pages function in virt/kvm/iommu.c in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 miscalculates the number of pages during the handling of a mapping failure, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS page unpinning) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging guest OS privileges. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2014-3601 (CVE-2014-8369). The updated packages provides a solution for these security issues.

    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 7. This is the first regular update. Red Hat Product Security 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. * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's XFS file system handled replacing of remote attributes under certain conditions. A local user with access to XFS file system mount could potentially use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2015-0274, Important) * It was found that the Linux kernel's KVM implementation did not ensure that the host CR4 control register value remained unchanged across VM entries on the same virtual CPU. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause denial of service on the system. (CVE-2014-3690, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way Linux kernel's Transparent Huge Pages (THP) implementation handled non-huge page migration. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the kernel by migrating transparent hugepages. (CVE-2014-3940, Moderate) * An out-of-bounds memory access flaw was found in the syscall tracing functionality of the Linux kernel's perf subsystem. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-7825, Moderate) * An out-of-bounds memory access flaw was found in the syscall tracing functionality of the Linux kernel's ftrace subsystem. On a system with ftrace syscall tracing enabled, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system, or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2014-7826, Moderate) * A race condition flaw was found in the Linux kernel's ext4 file system implementation that allowed a local, unprivileged user to crash the system by simultaneously writing to a file and toggling the O_DIRECT flag using fcntl(F_SETFL) on that file. (CVE-2014-8086, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's netfilter subsystem handled generic protocol tracking. As demonstrated in the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) case, a remote attacker could use this flaw to bypass intended iptables rule restrictions when the associated connection tracking module was not loaded on the system. (CVE-2014-8160, Moderate) * It was found that due to excessive files_lock locking, a soft lockup could be triggered in the Linux kernel when performing asynchronous I/O operations. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-8172, Moderate) * A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's madvise MADV_WILLNEED functionality handled page table locking. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-8173, Moderate) * An information leak flaw was found in the Linux kernel's IEEE 802.11 wireless networking implementation. When software encryption was used, a remote attacker could use this flaw to leak up to 8 bytes of plaintext. (CVE-2014-8709, Low) * A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the TechnoTrend/Hauppauge DEC USB device driver. A local user with write access to the corresponding device could use this flaw to crash the kernel or, potentially, elevate their privileges on the system.
