ID CVE-2014-8133
Summary 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.

Base: 2.1 (as of 17-12-2014 - 12:50)
Impact:
Exploitability:
CWE CWE-264
CAPEC
  • Accessing, Modifying or Executing Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's configuration that allows an attacker to either directly access an executable file, for example through shell access; or in a possible worst case allows an attacker to upload a file and then execute it. Web servers, ftp servers, and message oriented middleware systems which have many integration points are particularly vulnerable, because both the programmers and the administrators must be in synch regarding the interfaces and the correct privileges for each interface.
  • Leverage Executable Code in Non-Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's trust in configuration and resource files, when the executable loads the resource (such as an image file or configuration file) the attacker has modified the file to either execute malicious code directly or manipulate the target process (e.g. application server) to execute based on the malicious configuration parameters. Since systems are increasingly interrelated mashing up resources from local and remote sources the possibility of this attack occurring is high. The attack can be directed at a client system, such as causing buffer overrun through loading seemingly benign image files, as in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-028 where specially crafted JPEG files could cause a buffer overrun once loaded into the browser. Another example targets clients reading pdf files. In this case the attacker simply appends javascript to the end of a legitimate url for a pdf (http://www.gnucitizen.org/blog/danger-danger-danger/) http://path/to/pdf/file.pdf#whatever_name_you_want=javascript:your_code_here The client assumes that they are reading a pdf, but the attacker has modified the resource and loaded executable javascript into the client's browser process. The attack can also target server processes. The attacker edits the resource or configuration file, for example a web.xml file used to configure security permissions for a J2EE app server, adding role name "public" grants all users with the public role the ability to use the administration functionality. The server trusts its configuration file to be correct, but when they are manipulated, the attacker gains full control.
  • Blue Boxing
    This type of attack against older telephone switches and trunks has been around for decades. A tone is sent by an adversary to impersonate a supervisor signal which has the effect of rerouting or usurping command of the line. While the US infrastructure proper may not contain widespread vulnerabilities to this type of attack, many companies are connected globally through call centers and business process outsourcing. These international systems may be operated in countries which have not upgraded Telco infrastructure and so are vulnerable to Blue boxing. Blue boxing is a result of failure on the part of the system to enforce strong authorization for administrative functions. While the infrastructure is different than standard current applications like web applications, there are historical lessons to be learned to upgrade the access control for administrative functions.
  • Restful Privilege Elevation
    Rest uses standard HTTP (Get, Put, Delete) style permissions methods, but these are not necessarily correlated generally with back end programs. Strict interpretation of HTTP get methods means that these HTTP Get services should not be used to delete information on the server, but there is no access control mechanism to back up this logic. This means that unless the services are properly ACL'd and the application's service implementation are following these guidelines then an HTTP request can easily execute a delete or update on the server side. The attacker identifies a HTTP Get URL such as http://victimsite/updateOrder, which calls out to a program to update orders on a database or other resource. The URL is not idempotent so the request can be submitted multiple times by the attacker, additionally, the attacker may be able to exploit the URL published as a Get method that actually performs updates (instead of merely retrieving data). This may result in malicious or inadvertent altering of data on the server.
  • Target Programs with Elevated Privileges
    This attack targets programs running with elevated privileges. The attacker would try to leverage a bug in the running program and get arbitrary code to execute with elevated privileges. For instance an attacker would look for programs that write to the system directories or registry keys (such as HKLM, which stores a number of critical Windows environment variables). These programs are typically running with elevated privileges and have usually not been designed with security in mind. Such programs are excellent exploit targets because they yield lots of power when they break. The malicious user try to execute its code at the same level as a privileged system call.
  • Manipulating Input to File System Calls
    An attacker manipulates inputs to the target software which the target software passes to file system calls in the OS. The goal is to gain access to, and perhaps modify, areas of the file system that the target software did not intend to be accessible.

    NASL id OPENSUSE-2016-124.NASL
    description The openSUSE 13.1 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. Following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2016-0728: A reference leak in keyring handling with join_session_keyring() could lead to local attackers gain root privileges. (bsc#962075). - CVE-2015-7550: A local user could have triggered a race between read and revoke in keyctl (bnc#958951). - CVE-2015-8569: The (1) pptp_bind and (2) pptp_connect functions in drivers/net/ppp/pptp.c in the Linux kernel did not verify an address length, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory and bypass the KASLR protection mechanism via a crafted application (bnc#959190). - CVE-2015-8543: The networking implementation in the Linux kernel did not validate protocol identifiers for certain protocol families, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL function pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly gain privileges by leveraging CLONE_NEWUSER support to execute a crafted SOCK_RAW application (bnc#958886). - CVE-2014-8989: The Linux kernel did not properly restrict dropping of supplemental group memberships in certain namespace scenarios, which allowed 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 (bnc#906545). - CVE-2015-5157: arch/x86/entry/entry_64.S in the Linux kernel on the x86_64 platform mishandles IRET faults in processing NMIs that occurred during userspace execution, which might allow local users to gain privileges by triggering an NMI (bnc#937969). - CVE-2015-7799: The slhc_init function in drivers/net/slip/slhc.c in the Linux kernel through 4.2.3 did not ensure that certain slot numbers are valid, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a crafted PPPIOCSMAXCID ioctl call (bnc#949936). - CVE-2015-8104: The KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 4.2.6, and Xen 4.3.x through 4.6.x, allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS panic or hang) by triggering many #DB (aka Debug) exceptions, related to svm.c (bnc#954404). - CVE-2015-5307: The KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 4.2.6, and Xen 4.3.x through 4.6.x, allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS panic or hang) by triggering many #AC (aka Alignment Check) exceptions, related to svm.c and vmx.c (bnc#953527). - CVE-2014-9529: Race condition in the key_gc_unused_keys function in security/keys/gc.c in the Linux kernel allowed 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 (bnc#912202). - CVE-2015-7990: Race condition in the rds_sendmsg function in net/rds/sendmsg.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by using a socket that was not properly bound. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2015-6937 (bnc#952384 953052). - CVE-2015-6937: The __rds_conn_create function in net/rds/connection.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by using a socket that was not properly bound (bnc#945825). - CVE-2015-7885: The dgnc_mgmt_ioctl function in drivers/staging/dgnc/dgnc_mgmt.c in the Linux kernel through 4.3.3 did not initialize a certain structure member, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via a crafted application (bnc#951627). - CVE-2015-8215: net/ipv6/addrconf.c in the IPv6 stack in the Linux kernel did not validate attempted changes to the MTU value, which allowed context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (packet loss) via a value that is (1) smaller than the minimum compliant value or (2) larger than the MTU of an interface, as demonstrated by a Router Advertisement (RA) message that is not validated by a daemon, a different vulnerability than CVE-2015-0272. NOTE: the scope of CVE-2015-0272 is limited to the NetworkManager product (bnc#955354). - CVE-2015-8767: A case can occur when sctp_accept() is called by the user during a heartbeat timeout event after the 4-way handshake. Since sctp_assoc_migrate() changes both assoc->base.sk and assoc->ep, the bh_sock_lock in sctp_generate_heartbeat_event() will be taken with the listening socket but released with the new association socket. The result is a deadlock on any future attempts to take the listening socket lock. (bsc#961509) - CVE-2015-8575: Validate socket address length in sco_sock_bind() to prevent information leak (bsc#959399). - CVE-2015-8551, CVE-2015-8552: xen/pciback: For XEN_PCI_OP_disable_msi[|x] only disable if device has MSI(X) enabled (bsc#957990). - CVE-2015-8550: Compiler optimizations in the XEN PV backend drivers could have lead to double fetch vulnerabilities, causing denial of service or arbitrary code execution (depending on the configuration) (bsc#957988).

    NASL id MANDRIVA_MDVSA-2015-027.NASL
    description Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in the Linux kernel : The SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.17.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering a large number of chunks in an association's output queue, as demonstrated by ASCONF probes, related to net/sctp/inqueue.c and net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c (CVE-2014-3688=. Buffer overflow in net/ceph/auth_x.c in Ceph, as used in the Linux kernel before 3.16.3, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and panic) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a long unencrypted auth ticket (CVE-2014-6416). net/ceph/auth_x.c in Ceph, as used in the Linux kernel before 3.16.3, does not properly consider the possibility of kmalloc failure, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a long unencrypted auth ticket (CVE-2014-6417). net/ceph/auth_x.c in Ceph, as used in the Linux kernel before 3.16.3, does not properly validate auth replies, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted data from the IP address of a Ceph Monitor (CVE-2014-6418). 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, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a malformed INIT chunk (CVE-2014-7841). Race condition in arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in the Linux kernel before 3.17.4 allows 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 (CVE-2014-7842). 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). Stack-based buffer overflow in the ttusbdecfe_dvbs_diseqc_send_master_cmd function in drivers/media/usb/ttusb-dec/ttusbdecfe.c in the Linux kernel before 3.17.4 allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly gain privileges via a large message length in an ioctl call (CVE-2014-8884). The do_double_fault function in arch/x86/kernel/traps.c in the Linux kernel through 3.17.4 does not properly handle faults associated with the Stack Segment (SS) segment register, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (panic) via a modify_ldt system call, as demonstrated by sigreturn_32 in the linux-clock-tests test suite (CVE-2014-9090). arch/x86/kernel/entry_64.S in the Linux kernel before 3.17.5 does not properly handle faults associated with the Stack Segment (SS) segment register, which allows local users to gain privileges by triggering an IRET instruction that leads to access to a GS Base address from the wrong space (CVE-2014-9322). 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). 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 updated packages provides a solution for these security issues.

    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 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 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).

(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).

    title SuSE 11.3 Security Update : Linux Kernel (SAT Patch Numbers 10412 / 10415 / 10416)
  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_11_KERNEL-141217.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Service Pack 3 kernel has been updated to fix various bugs and security issues. The following security bugs have been fixed : - The __request_module function in kernel/kmod.c in the Linux kernel before 3.4 did not set a certain killable attribute, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a crafted application. (bnc#779488). (CVE-2012-4398) - drivers/hid/hid-zpff.c in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_HID_ZEROPLUS is enabled, allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based out-of-bounds write) via a crafted device. (bnc#835839). (CVE-2013-2889) - The Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_LOGITECH_FF, CONFIG_LOGIG940_FF, or CONFIG_LOGIWHEELS_FF is enabled, allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based out-of-bounds write) via a crafted device, related to (1) drivers/hid/hid-lgff.c, (2) drivers/hid/hid-lg3ff.c, and (3) drivers/hid/hid-lg4ff.c. (bnc#835839). (CVE-2013-2893) - Multiple array index errors in drivers/hid/hid-multitouch.c in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_HID_MULTITOUCH is enabled, allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption, or NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted device. (bnc#835839). (CVE-2013-2897) - drivers/hid/hid-picolcd_core.c in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_HID_PICOLCD is enabled, allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted device. (bnc#835839). (CVE-2013-2899) - The Linux kernel before 3.12.4 updates certain length values before ensuring that associated data structures have been initialized, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a (1) recvfrom, (2) recvmmsg, or (3) recvmsg system call, related to net/ipv4/ping.c, net/ipv4/raw.c, net/ipv4/udp.c, net/ipv6/raw.c, and net/ipv6/udp.c. (bnc#853040, bnc#857643). (CVE-2013-7263) - Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in the magicmouse_raw_event function in drivers/hid/hid-magicmouse.c in the Magic Mouse HID driver in the Linux kernel through 3.16.3 allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted device that provides a large amount of (1) EHCI or (2) XHCI data associated with an event. (bnc#896382). (CVE-2014-3181) - The report_fixup functions in the HID subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.16.2 allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write) via a crafted device that provides a small report descriptor, related to (1) drivers/hid/hid-cherry.c, (2) drivers/hid/hid-kye.c, (3) drivers/hid/hid-lg.c, (4) drivers/hid/hid-monterey.c, (5) drivers/hid/hid-petalynx.c, and (6) drivers/hid/hid-sunplus.c. (bnc#896390). (CVE-2014-3184) - Multiple buffer overflows in the command_port_read_callback function in drivers/usb/serial/whiteheat.c in the Whiteheat USB Serial Driver in the Linux kernel before 3.16.2 allowed physically proximate attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) via a crafted device that provides a large amount of (1) EHCI or (2) XHCI data associated with a bulk response. (bnc#896391). (CVE-2014-3185) - 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-2014-3186) - The kvm_iommu_map_pages function in virt/kvm/iommu.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 miscalculated 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-2014-3601) - 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-2014-3610) - 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-2014-3646) - 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-2014-3647) - 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, bnc#902349). (CVE-2014-3673) - arch/x86/kernel/entry_32.S in the Linux kernel through 3.15.1 on 32-bit x86 platforms, when syscall auditing is enabled and the sep CPU feature flag is set, allowed local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS and system crash) via an invalid syscall number, as demonstrated by number 1000. (bnc#883724). (CVE-2014-4508) - * DISPUTED * 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. NOTE: the author of the LZO algorithms says: The Linux kernel is not affected; media hype. (bnc#883948). (CVE-2014-4608) - 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-2014-7826) - An SCTP server doing ASCONF would panic on malformed INIT ping-of-death. (bnc#905100). (CVE-2014-7841) - 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-2014-8709) - A local user with write access could have used this flaw to crash the kernel or elevate privileges (bnc#905522). The following non-security bugs have been fixed:.

    title SuSE 11.3 Security Update : Linux kernel (SAT Patch Number 10103)
  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DLA-155.NASL
    description This update fixes the CVEs described below. A further issue, CVE-2014-9419, was considered, but appears to require extensive changes with a consequent high risk of regression. It is now unlikely to be fixed in squeeze-lts. CVE-2013-6885 It was discovered that under specific circumstances, a combination of write operations to write-combined memory and locked CPU instructions may cause a core hang on AMD 16h 00h through 0Fh processors. A local user can use this flaw to mount a denial of service (system hang) via a crafted application. For more information please refer to the AMD CPU erratum 793 in http://support.amd.com/TechDocs/51810_16h_00h-0Fh_Rev_Guide. pdf CVE-2014-7822 It was found that the splice() system call did not validate the given file offset and length. A local unprivileged user can use this flaw to cause filesystem corruption on ext4 filesystems, or possibly other effects. CVE-2014-8133 It was found that the espfix functionality can be bypassed by installing a 16-bit RW data segment into GDT instead of LDT (which espfix checks for) and using it for stack. A local unprivileged user could potentially use this flaw to leak kernel stack addresses. CVE-2014-8134 It was found that the espfix functionality is wrongly disabled in a 32-bit KVM guest. A local unprivileged user could potentially use this flaw to leak kernel stack addresses. CVE-2014-8160 It was found that a netfilter (iptables or ip6tables) rule accepting packets to a specific SCTP, DCCP, GRE or UDPlite port/endpoint could result in incorrect connection tracking state. If only the generic connection tracking module (nf_conntrack) was loaded, and not the protocol-specific connection tracking module, this would allow access to any port/endpoint of the specified protocol. CVE-2014-9420 It was found that the ISO-9660 filesystem implementation (isofs) follows arbitrarily long chains, including loops, of Continuation Entries (CEs). This allows local users to mount a denial of service via a crafted disc image. CVE-2014-9584 It was found that the ISO-9660 filesystem implementation (isofs) 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 disc image. CVE-2014-9585 It was discovered that address randomisation for the vDSO in 64-bit processes is extremely biassed. A local unprivileged user could potentially use this flaw to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism. CVE-2015-1421 It was found that the SCTP implementation could free authentication state while it was still in use, resulting in heap corruption. This could allow remote users to cause a denial of service or privilege escalation. CVE-2015-1593 It was found that address randomisation for the initial stack in 64-bit processes was limited to 20 rather than 22 bits of entropy. A local unprivileged user could potentially use this flaw to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism. NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    title Debian DLA-155-1 : linux-2.6 security update
  • NASL family Ubuntu Local Security Checks
    NASL id UBUNTU_USN-2515-2.NASL
    description USN-2515-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel. There was an unrelated regression in the use of the virtual counter (CNTVCT) on arm64 architectures. This update fixes the problem. We apologize for the inconvenience. A flaw was discovered in the Kernel Virtual Machine's (KVM) emulation of the SYSTENTER instruction when the guest OS does not initialize the SYSENTER MSRs. A guest OS user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service of the guest OS (crash) or potentially gain privileges on the guest OS. (CVE-2015-0239) Andy Lutomirski discovered an information leak in the Linux kernel's Thread Local Storage (TLS) implementation allowing users to bypass the espfix to obtain information that could be used to bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) protection mechanism. A local user could exploit this flaw to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory. (CVE-2014-8133) A restriction bypass was discovered in iptables when conntrack rules are specified and the conntrack protocol handler module is not loaded into the Linux kernel. This flaw can cause the firewall rules on the system to be bypassed when conntrack rules are used. (CVE-2014-8160) A flaw was discovered with file renaming in the linux kernel. A local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (deadlock and system hang). (CVE-2014-8559) A flaw was discovered in how supplemental group memberships are handled in certain namespace scenarios. A local user could exploit this flaw to bypass file permission restrictions. (CVE-2014-8989) A flaw was discovered in how Thread Local Storage (TLS) is handled by the task switching function in the Linux kernel for x86_64 based machines. A local user could exploit this flaw to bypass the Address Space Layout Radomization (ASLR) protection mechanism. (CVE-2014-9419) Prasad J Pandit reported a flaw in the rock_continue function of the Linux kernel's ISO 9660 CDROM file system. A local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash or hang). (CVE-2014-9420) A flaw was discovered in the fragment handling of the B.A.T.M.A.N. Advanced Meshing Protocol in the Linux kernel. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (mesh-node system crash) via fragmented packets. (CVE-2014-9428) A race condition was discovered in the Linux kernel's key ring. A local user could cause a denial of service (memory corruption or panic) or possibly have unspecified impact via the keyctl commands. (CVE-2014-9529) A memory leak was discovered in the ISO 9660 CDROM file system when parsing rock ridge ER records. A local user could exploit this flaw to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via a crafted iso9660 image. (CVE-2014-9584) A flaw was discovered in the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) of the Virtual Dynamically linked Shared Objects (vDSO) location. This flaw makes it easier for a local user to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism. (CVE-2014-9585) Dmitry Chernenkov discovered a buffer overflow in eCryptfs' encrypted file name decoding. A local unprivileged user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash) or potentially gain administrative privileges. (CVE-2014-9683). 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, 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 seventh regular update. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Moderate 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 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) * A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's eCryptfs implementation decoded encrypted file names. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-9683, Moderate) * A race condition flaw was found between the chown and execve system calls. When changing the owner of a setuid user binary to root, the race condition could momentarily make the binary setuid root. A local, unprivileged user could potentially use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2015-3339, Moderate) * Multiple out-of-bounds write flaws were found in the way the Cherry Cymotion keyboard driver, KYE/Genius device drivers, Logitech device drivers, Monterey Genius KB29E keyboard driver, Petalynx Maxter remote control driver, and Sunplus wireless desktop driver handled HID reports with an invalid report descriptor size. An attacker with physical access to the system could use either of these flaws to write data past an allocated memory buffer. (CVE-2014-3184, Low) * An information leak flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) implementation handled access of the user control's state. A local, privileged user could use this flaw to leak kernel memory to user space. (CVE-2014-4652, Low) * It was found that the espfix functionality could be bypassed by installing a 16-bit RW data segment into GDT instead of LDT (which espfix checks), and using that segment on the stack. A local, unprivileged user could potentially use this flaw to leak kernel stack addresses. (CVE-2014-8133, Low) * 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) * It was found that the Linux kernel KVM subsystem's sysenter instruction emulation was not sufficient. An unprivileged guest user could use this flaw to escalate their privileges by tricking the hypervisor to emulate a SYSENTER instruction in 16-bit mode, if the guest OS did not initialize the SYSENTER model-specific registers (MSRs). Note: Certified guest operating systems for Red Hat Enterprise Linux with KVM do initialize the SYSENTER MSRs and are thus not vulnerable to this issue when running on a KVM hypervisor. (CVE-2015-0239, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Andy Lutomirski for reporting the CVE-2014-8133 issue, and Nadav Amit for reporting the CVE-2015-0239 issue. This update fixes several hundred bugs and adds numerous enhancements. Refer to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7 Release Notes for information on the most significant of these changes, and the following Knowledgebase article for further information : https://access.redhat.com/articles/1466073 All kernel users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues and add these enhancements. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

Security issues fixed: CVE-2014-9322: A local privilege escalation in the x86_64 32bit compatibility signal handling was fixed, which could be used by local attackers to crash the machine or execute code. - CVE-2014-9090: Various issues in LDT handling in 32bit compatibility mode on the x86_64 platform were fixed, where local attackers could crash the machine. - CVE-2014-8133: Insufficient validation of TLS register usage could leak information from the kernel stack to userspace. - CVE-2014-7826: kernel/trace/trace_syscalls.c in the Linux kernel 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. - CVE-2014-3647: Nadav Amit reported that the KVM (Kernel Virtual Machine) mishandled noncanonical addresses when emulating instructions that change the rip (Instruction Pointer). A guest user with access to I/O or the MMIO could use this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash) of the guest. - CVE-2014-3611: A race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's KVM subsystem handled PIT (Programmable Interval Timer) emulation. A guest user who has access to the PIT I/O ports could use this flaw to crash the host. - CVE-2014-3610: If the guest writes a noncanonical value to certain MSR registers, KVM will write that value to the MSR in the host context and a #GP will be raised leading to kernel panic. A privileged guest user could have used this flaw to crash the host. - CVE-2014-7841: A remote attacker could have used a flaw in SCTP to crash the system by sending a maliciously prepared SCTP packet in order to trigger a NULL pointer dereference on the server. - CVE-2014-3673: The SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel 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. - CVE-2014-3185: Multiple buffer overflows in the command_port_read_callback function in drivers/usb/serial/whiteheat.c in the Whiteheat USB Serial Driver in the Linux kernel allowed physically proximate attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) via a crafted device that provides a large amount of (1) EHCI or (2) XHCI data associated with a bulk response.

    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 seventh regular update. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Moderate 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 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) * A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's eCryptfs implementation decoded encrypted file names. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-9683, Moderate) * A race condition flaw was found between the chown and execve system calls. When changing the owner of a setuid user binary to root, the race condition could momentarily make the binary setuid root. A local, unprivileged user could potentially use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2015-3339, Moderate) * Multiple out-of-bounds write flaws were found in the way the Cherry Cymotion keyboard driver, KYE/Genius device drivers, Logitech device drivers, Monterey Genius KB29E keyboard driver, Petalynx Maxter remote control driver, and Sunplus wireless desktop driver handled HID reports with an invalid report descriptor size. An attacker with physical access to the system could use either of these flaws to write data past an allocated memory buffer. (CVE-2014-3184, Low) * An information leak flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) implementation handled access of the user control's state. A local, privileged user could use this flaw to leak kernel memory to user space. (CVE-2014-4652, Low) * It was found that the espfix functionality could be bypassed by installing a 16-bit RW data segment into GDT instead of LDT (which espfix checks), and using that segment on the stack. A local, unprivileged user could potentially use this flaw to leak kernel stack addresses. (CVE-2014-8133, Low) * 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) * It was found that the Linux kernel KVM subsystem's sysenter instruction emulation was not sufficient. An unprivileged guest user could use this flaw to escalate their privileges by tricking the hypervisor to emulate a SYSENTER instruction in 16-bit mode, if the guest OS did not initialize the SYSENTER model-specific registers (MSRs). Note: Certified guest operating systems for Red Hat Enterprise Linux with KVM do initialize the SYSENTER MSRs and are thus not vulnerable to this issue when running on a KVM hypervisor. (CVE-2015-0239, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Andy Lutomirski for reporting the CVE-2014-8133 issue, and Nadav Amit for reporting the CVE-2015-0239 issue. This update fixes several hundred bugs and adds numerous enhancements. Refer to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7 Release Notes for information on the most significant of these changes, and the following Knowledgebase article for further information : https://access.redhat.com/articles/1466073 All kernel users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues and add these enhancements. 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 or information leaks. - CVE-2013-6885 It was discovered that under specific circumstances, a combination of write operations to write-combined memory and locked CPU instructions may cause a core hang on AMD 16h 00h through 0Fh processors. A local user can use this flaw to mount a denial of service (system hang) via a crafted application. For more information please refer to the AMD CPU erratum 793 in http://support.amd.com/TechDocs/51810_16h_00h-0Fh_Rev_Guide.pdf - CVE-2014-8133 It was found that the espfix funcionality can be bypassed by installing a 16-bit RW data segment into GDT instead of LDT (which espfix checks for) and using it for stack. A local unprivileged user could potentially use this flaw to leak kernel stack addresses and thus allowing to bypass the ASLR protection mechanism. - CVE-2014-9419 It was found that on Linux kernels compiled with the 32 bit interfaces (CONFIG_X86_32) a malicious user program can do a partial ASLR bypass through TLS base addresses leak when attacking other programs. - CVE-2014-9529 It was discovered that the Linux kernel is affected by a race condition flaw when doing key garbage collection, allowing local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or panic). - CVE-2014-9584 It was found that the Linux kernel 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.
