  • Overread Buffers
    An adversary attacks a target by providing input that causes an application to read beyond the boundary of a defined buffer. This typically occurs when a value influencing where to start or stop reading is set to reflect positions outside of the valid memory location of the buffer. This type of attack may result in exposure of sensitive information, a system crash, or arbitrary code execution.

    description An update for kernel-rt is now available for Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.5. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. The kernel-rt packages provide the Real Time Linux Kernel, which enables fine-tuning for systems with extremely high determinism requirements. The kernel-rt packages have been upgraded to version 3.10.0-514, which provides a number of security and bug fixes over the previous version. (BZ#1400193) Security Fix(es) : * A use-after-free vulnerability was found in the kernel's socket recvmmsg subsystem. This may allow remote attackers to corrupt memory and may allow execution of arbitrary code. This corruption takes place during the error handling routines within __sys_recvmmsg() function. (CVE-2016-7117, Important) * A use-after-free vulnerability was found in tcp_xmit_retransmit_queue and other tcp_* functions. This condition could allow an attacker to send an incorrect selective acknowledgment to existing connections, possibly resetting a connection. (CVE-2016-6828, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's implementation of sctp protocol in which a remote attacker can trigger an out of bounds read with an offset of up to 64kB. This may panic the machine with a page-fault. (CVE-2016-9555, Moderate) Bug Fix(es) : * Previously, console warnings from the real-time kernel were generated when a sleeping lock was acquired in atomic context. With this update, the code has been modified to not acquire a sleeping lock in this context. As a result, the console warnings are no longer generated. (BZ#1378982) * Previously, the device mapper (DM) subsystem was not notified that the real-time kernel changes the way preemption works with spinlocks. This caused a kernel panic when the dm-multipath kernel module was loaded because the interrupt request (IRQ) check was invalid on the real-time kernel. This check has been corrected enabling the system to boot correctly with the dm-multipath module enabled. (BZ#1400305) * Previously, the kernel could sometimes panic due to a possible division by zero in the scheduler. This bug has been fixed by defining a new div64_ul() division function and correcting the affected calculation in the proc_sched_show_task() function. (BZ#1400975) * Unlike the standard Linux kernel, the real-time kernel does not disable interrupts inside the Interrupt Service Routines driver. Because of this difference, a New API (NAPI) function for turning interrupt requests (IRQ) off was actually being called with IRQs enabled. Consequently, the NAPI poll list was being corrupted, causing improper networking card operation and potential kernel hangs. With this update, the NAPI function has been corrected to force modifications of the poll list to be protected allowing proper operation of the networking card drivers. (BZ#1401779) Enhancement(s) : * With this update, the CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG and CONFIG_SLABINFO kernel configuration options are enabled in the real-time kernel. These options turn on SLUB allocator debugging and slab information tracking, which are helpful when investigating kernel memory allocation problems. (BZ#1357997)

    description CAI Qian discovered that shared bind mounts in a mount namespace exponentially added entries without restriction to the Linux kernel's mount table. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2016-6213) It was discovered that the KVM implementation for x86/x86_64 in the Linux kernel could dereference a NULL pointer. An attacker in a guest virtual machine could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) in the KVM host. (CVE-2016-8630) Eyal Itkin discovered that the IP over IEEE 1394 (FireWire) implementation in the Linux kernel contained a buffer overflow when handling fragmented packets. A remote attacker could use this to possibly execute arbitrary code with administrative privileges. (CVE-2016-8633) Marco Grassi discovered that the TCP implementation in the Linux kernel mishandles socket buffer (skb) truncation. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2016-8645) It was discovered that the keyring implementation in the Linux kernel improperly handled crypto registration in conjunction with successful key- type registration.

  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id OPENSUSE-2016-1431.NASL
    description The openSUSE 13.2 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2015-8962: Double free vulnerability in the sg_common_write function in drivers/scsi/sg.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) by detaching a device during an SG_IO ioctl call (bnc#1010501). - CVE-2015-8963: Race condition in kernel/events/core.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) by leveraging incorrect handling of an swevent data structure during a CPU unplug operation (bnc#1010502). - CVE-2016-7042: The proc_keys_show function in security/keys/proc.c in the Linux kernel through 4.8.2, when the GNU Compiler Collection (gcc) stack protector is enabled, uses an incorrect buffer size for certain timeout data, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (stack memory corruption and panic) by reading the /proc/keys file (bnc#1004517). - CVE-2016-7910: Use-after-free vulnerability in the disk_seqf_stop function in block/genhd.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges by leveraging the execution of a certain stop operation even if the corresponding start operation had failed (bnc#1010716). - CVE-2016-7911: Race condition in the get_task_ioprio function in block/ioprio.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) via a crafted ioprio_get system call (bnc#1010711). - CVE-2016-7913: The xc2028_set_config function in drivers/media/tuners/tuner-xc2028.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) via vectors involving omission of the firmware name from a certain data structure (bnc#1010478). - CVE-2016-7914: The assoc_array_insert_into_terminal_node function in lib/assoc_array.c in the Linux kernel did not check whether a slot is a leaf, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory or cause a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference and out-of-bounds read) via an application that uses associative-array data structures, as demonstrated by the keyutils test suite (bnc#1010475). - CVE-2016-7916: Race condition in the environ_read function in fs/proc/base.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by reading a /proc/*/environ file during a process-setup time interval in which environment-variable copying is incomplete (bnc#1010467). - CVE-2016-8633: drivers/firewire/net.c in the Linux kernel before 4.8.7, in certain unusual hardware configurations, allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted fragmented packets (bnc#1008833). - CVE-2016-8646: The hash_accept function in crypto/algif_hash.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) by attempting to trigger use of in-kernel hash algorithms for a socket that has received zero bytes of data (bnc#1010150). - CVE-2016-8655: A race condition in the af_packet packet_set_ring function could be used by local attackers to crash the kernel or gain privileges (bsc#1012754). - CVE-2016-9555: The sctp_sf_ootb function in net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c in the Linux kernel lacks chunk-length checking for the first chunk, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds slab access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted SCTP data (bnc#1011685). The following non-security bugs were fixed : - bna: Add synchronization for tx ring (bsc#993739). - bonding: set carrier off for devices created through netlink (bsc#999577). - btrfs: fix extent tree corruption due to relocation (bsc#990384). - introduce NETIF_F_GSO_ENCAP_ALL helper mask (bsc#1001486). - ipv6: send NEWLINK on RA managed/otherconf changes (bsc#934067). - ipv6: send only one NEWLINK when RA causes changes (bsc#934067). - tunnels: Remove encapsulation offloads on decap (bsc#1001486). - usbhid: add ATEN CS962 to list of quirky devices (bsc#1007615). - vmxnet3: Wake queue from reset work (bsc#999907).

  • NASL family Debian Local Security Checks
    NASL id DEBIAN_DLA-772.NASL
    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service or information leaks. CVE-2012-6704, CVE-2016-9793 Eric Dumazet found that a local user with CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could set a socket's buffer size to be negative, leading to a denial of service or other security impact. Additionally, in kernel versions prior to 3.5, any user could do this if sysctl net.core.rmem_max was changed to a very large value. CVE-2015-1350 / #770492 Ben Harris reported that local users could remove set-capability attributes from any file visible to them, allowing a denial of service. CVE-2015-8962 Calvin Owens fouund that removing a SCSI device while it was being accessed through the SCSI generic (sg) driver led to a double- free, possibly causing a denial of service (crash or memory corruption) or privilege escalation. This could be exploited by local users with permision to access a SCSI device node. CVE-2015-8963 Sasha Levin reported that hot-unplugging a CPU resulted in a use-after-free by the performance events (perf) subsystem, possibly causing a denial of service (crash or memory corruption) or privilege escalation. This could by exploited by any local user. CVE-2015-8964 It was found that the terminal/serial (tty) subsystem did not reliably reset the terminal buffer state when the terminal line discipline was changed. This could allow a local user with access to a terminal device to read sensitive information from kernel memory. CVE-2016-7097 Jan Kara found that changing the POSIX ACL of a file never cleared its set-group-ID flag, which should be done if the user changing it is not a member of the group-owner. In some cases, this would allow the user-owner of an executable to gain the privileges of the group-owner. CVE-2016-7910 Vegard Nossum discovered that a memory allocation failure while handling a read of /proc/diskstats or /proc/partitions could lead to a use-after-free, possibly causing a denial of service (crash or memory corruption) or privilege escalation. CVE-2016-7911 Dmitry Vyukov reported that a race between ioprio_get() and ioprio_set() system calls could result in a use-after-free, possibly causing a denial of service (crash) or leaking sensitive information. CVE-2016-7915 Benjamin Tissoires found that HID devices could trigger an out-of- bounds memory access in the HID core. A physically present user could possibly use this for denial of service (crash) or to leak sensitive information. CVE-2016-8399 Qidan He reported that the IPv4 ping socket implementation did not validate the length of packets to be sent. A user with permisson to use ping sockets could cause an out-of-bounds read, possibly resulting in a denial of service or information leak. However, on Debian systems no users have permission to create ping sockets by default. CVE-2016-8633 Eyal Itkin reported that the IP-over-Firewire driver (firewire-net) did not validate the offset or length in link-layer fragmentation headers. This allowed a remote system connected by Firewire to write to memory after a packet buffer, leading to a denial of service (crash) or remote code execution. CVE-2016-8645 Marco Grassi reported that if a socket filter (BPF program) attached to a TCP socket truncates or removes the TCP header, this could cause a denial of service (crash). This was exploitable by any local user. CVE-2016-8655 Philip Pettersson found that the implementation of packet sockets (AF_PACKET family) had a race condition between enabling a transmit ring buffer and changing the version of buffers used, which could result in a use-after-free. A local user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could exploit this for privilege escalation. CVE-2016-9178 Al Viro found that a failure to read data from user memory might lead to a information leak on the x86 architecture (amd64 or i386). CVE-2016-9555 Andrey Konovalov reported that the SCTP implementation does not validate 'out of the blue' packet chunk lengths early enough. A remote system able could use this to cause a denial of service (crash) or other security impact for systems using SCTP. CVE-2016-9576, CVE-2016-10088 Dmitry Vyukov reported that using splice() with the SCSI generic driver led to kernel memory corruption. Local users with permision to access a SCSI device node could exploit this for privilege escalation. CVE-2016-9756 Dmitry Vyukov reported that KVM for the x86 architecture (amd64 or i386) did not correctly handle the failure of certain instructions that require software emulation on older processors. This could be exploited by guest systems to leak sensitive information or for denial of service (log spam). CVE-2016-9794 Baozeng Ding reported a race condition in the ALSA (sound) subsystem that could result in a use-after-free. Local users with access to a PCM sound device could exploit this for denial of service (crash or memory corruption) or other security impact. For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 3.2.84-1. This version also includes bug fixes from upstream version 3.2.84 and updates the PREEMPT_RT featureset to version 3.2.84-rt122. Finally, this version adds the option to mitigate security issues in the performance events (perf) subsystem by disabling use by unprivileged users. This can be done by setting sysctl kernel.perf_event_paranoid=3. For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 3.16.39-1 which will be included in the next point release (8.6). We recommend that you upgrade your linux packages. 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.

    description According to the versions of the kernel packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities : - arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the Linux kernel through 4.9 mismanages the #BP and #OF exceptions, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) by declining to handle an exception thrown by an L2 guest.(CVE-2016-9588) - The IP stack in the Linux kernel before 4.6 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (stack consumption and panic) or possibly have unspecified other impact by triggering use of the GRO path for packets with tunnel stacking, as demonstrated by interleaved IPv4 headers and GRE headers, a related issue to CVE-2016-7039.(CVE-2016-8666) - The blk_rq_map_user_iov function in block/blk-map.c in the Linux kernel before 4.8.14 does not properly restrict the type of iterator, which allows local users to read or write to arbitrary kernel memory locations or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) by leveraging access to a /dev/sg device.(CVE-2016-9576) - Race condition in the netlink_dump function in net/netlink/af_netlink.c in the Linux kernel before 4.6.3 allows local users to cause a denial of service (double free) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted application that makes sendmsg system calls, leading to a free operation associated with a new dump that started earlier than anticipated.(CVE-2016-9806) - The sg implementation in the Linux kernel through 4.9 does not properly restrict write operations in situations where the KERNEL_DS option is set, which allows local users to read or write to arbitrary kernel memory locations or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) by leveraging access to a /dev/sg device, related to block/bsg.c and drivers/scsi/sg.c. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2016-9576.(CVE-2016-10088) - A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's implementation of the SCTP protocol. A remote attacker could trigger an out-of-bounds read with an offset of up to 64kB potentially causing the system to crash. (CVE-2016-9555) - The arch_pick_mmap_layout function in arch/x86/mm/mmap.c in the Linux kernel through 4.5.2 does not properly randomize the legacy base address, which makes it easier for local users to defeat the intended restrictions on the ADDR_NO_RANDOMIZE flag, and bypass the ASLR protection mechanism for a setuid or setgid program, by disabling stack-consumption resource limits.(CVE-2016-3672) Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory.

  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2017-0091.NASL
    description An update for kernel-rt is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. The kernel-rt packages provide the Real Time Linux Kernel, which enables fine-tuning for systems with extremely high determinism requirements. Security Fix(es) : * A use-after-free vulnerability was found in the kernel's socket recvmmsg subsystem. This may allow remote attackers to corrupt memory and may allow execution of arbitrary code. This corruption takes place during the error handling routines within __sys_recvmmsg() function. (CVE-2016-7117, Important) * A use-after-free vulnerability was found in tcp_xmit_retransmit_queue and other tcp_* functions. This condition could allow an attacker to send an incorrect selective acknowledgment to existing connections, possibly resetting a connection. (CVE-2016-6828, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's implementation of sctp protocol in which a remote attacker can trigger an out of bounds read with an offset of up to 64kB. This may panic the machine with a page-fault. (CVE-2016-9555, Moderate) Bug Fix(es) : * The kernel-rt packages have been upgraded to the 3.10.0-514.6.1 source tree, which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version. (BZ# 1401863) * Previously, the device mapper (DM) subsystem was not notified that the real-time kernel changes the way preemption works with spinlocks. This caused a kernel panic when the dm-multipath kernel module was loaded because the interrupt request (IRQ) check was invalid on the real-time kernel. This check has been corrected enabling the system to boot correctly with the dm-multipath module enabled. (BZ#1400930) * Unlike the standard Linux kernel, the real-time kernel does not disable interrupts inside the Interrupt Service Routines driver. Because of this difference, a New API (NAPI) function for turning interrupt requests (IRQ) off was actually being called with IRQs enabled. Consequently, the NAPI poll list was being corrupted, causing improper networking card operation and potential kernel hangs. With this update, the NAPI function has been corrected to force modifications of the poll list to be protected allowing proper operation of the networking card drivers. (BZ#1402837)

    NASL id SUSE_SU-2017-0494-1.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP3 LTSS kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2015-8970: crypto/algif_skcipher.c in the Linux kernel did not verify that a setkey operation has been performed on an AF_ALG socket before an accept system call is processed, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a crafted application that did not supply a key, related to the lrw_crypt function in crypto/lrw.c (bnc#1008374). - CVE-2017-5551: Clear S_ISGID on tmpfs when setting posix ACLs (bsc#1021258). - CVE-2016-7097: The filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel preserves the setgid bit during a setxattr call, which allowed local users to gain group privileges by leveraging the existence of a setgid program with restrictions on execute permissions (bnc#995968). - CVE-2016-10088: The sg implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly restrict write operations in situations where the KERNEL_DS option is set, which allowed local users to read or write to arbitrary kernel memory locations or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) by leveraging access to a /dev/sg device, related to block/bsg.c and drivers/scsi/sg.c. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2016-9576 (bnc#1017710). - CVE-2004-0230: TCP, when using a large Window Size, made it easier for remote attackers to guess sequence numbers and cause a denial of service (connection loss) to persistent TCP connections by repeatedly injecting a TCP RST packet, especially in protocols that use long-lived connections, such as BGP (bnc#969340). - CVE-2016-8632: The tipc_msg_build function in net/tipc/msg.c in the Linux kernel did not validate the relationship between the minimum fragment length and the maximum packet size, which allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability (bnc#1008831). - CVE-2016-8399: An elevation of privilege vulnerability in the kernel networking subsystem could have enabled a local malicious application to execute arbitrary code within the context of the kernel bnc#1014746). - CVE-2016-9793: The sock_setsockopt function in net/core/sock.c in the Linux kernel mishandled negative values of sk_sndbuf and sk_rcvbuf, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for a crafted setsockopt system call with the (1) SO_SNDBUFFORCE or (2) SO_RCVBUFFORCE option (bnc#1013531). - CVE-2012-6704: The sock_setsockopt function in net/core/sock.c in the Linux kernel mishandled negative values of sk_sndbuf and sk_rcvbuf, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for a crafted setsockopt system call with the (1) SO_SNDBUF or (2) SO_RCVBUF option (bnc#1013542). - CVE-2016-9756: arch/x86/kvm/emulate.c in the Linux kernel did not properly initialize Code Segment (CS) in certain error cases, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a crafted application (bnc#1013038). - CVE-2016-3841: The IPv6 stack in the Linux kernel mishandled options data, which allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free and system crash) via a crafted sendmsg system call (bnc#992566). - CVE-2016-9685: Multiple memory leaks in error paths in fs/xfs/xfs_attr_list.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via crafted XFS filesystem operations (bnc#1012832). - CVE-2015-1350: The VFS subsystem in the Linux kernel provided an incomplete set of requirements for setattr operations that underspecifies removing extended privilege attributes, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (capability stripping) via a failed invocation of a system call, as demonstrated by using chown to remove a capability from the ping or Wireshark dumpcap program (bnc#914939). - CVE-2015-8962: Double free vulnerability in the sg_common_write function in drivers/scsi/sg.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) by detaching a device during an SG_IO ioctl call (bnc#1010501). - CVE-2016-9555: The sctp_sf_ootb function in net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c in the Linux kernel lacked chunk-length checking for the first chunk, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds slab access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted SCTP data (bnc#1011685). - CVE-2016-7910: Use-after-free vulnerability in the disk_seqf_stop function in block/genhd.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges by leveraging the execution of a certain stop operation even if the corresponding start operation had failed (bnc#1010716). - CVE-2016-7911: Race condition in the get_task_ioprio function in block/ioprio.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) via a crafted ioprio_get system call (bnc#1010711). - CVE-2015-8964: The tty_set_termios_ldisc function in drivers/tty/tty_ldisc.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by reading a tty data structure (bnc#1010507). - CVE-2016-7916: Race condition in the environ_read function in fs/proc/base.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by reading a /proc/*/environ file during a process-setup time interval in which environment-variable copying is incomplete (bnc#1010467). - CVE-2016-8646: The hash_accept function in crypto/algif_hash.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) by attempting to trigger use of in-kernel hash algorithms for a socket that has received zero bytes of data (bnc#1010150). - CVE-2016-8633: drivers/firewire/net.c in the Linux kernel in certain unusual hardware configurations allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted fragmented packets (bnc#1008833). - CVE-2016-7042: The proc_keys_show function in security/keys/proc.c in the Linux, when the GNU Compiler Collection (gcc) stack protector is enabled, used an incorrect buffer size for certain timeout data, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (stack memory corruption and panic) by reading the /proc/keys file (bnc#1004517). - CVE-2015-8956: The rfcomm_sock_bind function in net/bluetooth/rfcomm/sock.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive information or cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) via vectors involving a bind system call on a Bluetooth RFCOMM socket (bnc#1003925). - CVE-2016-7117: Use-after-free vulnerability in the __sys_recvmmsg function in net/socket.c in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via vectors involving a recvmmsg system call that is mishandled during error processing (bnc#1003077). - CVE-2016-0823: The pagemap_open function in fs/proc/task_mmu.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive physical-address information by reading a pagemap file (bnc#994759). - CVE-2016-7425: The arcmsr_iop_message_xfer function in drivers/scsi/arcmsr/arcmsr_hba.c in the Linux kernel did not restrict a certain length field, which allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) via an ARCMSR_MESSAGE_WRITE_WQBUFFER control code (bnc#999932). -

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2017:0307 : An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security Fix(es) : * When creating audit records for parameters to executed children processes, an attacker can convince the Linux kernel audit subsystem can create corrupt records which may allow an attacker to misrepresent or evade logging of executing commands. (CVE-2016-6136, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's implementation of the SCTP protocol. A remote attacker could trigger an out-of-bounds read with an offset of up to 64kB potentially causing the system to crash. (CVE-2016-9555, Moderate) Bug Fix(es) : * The qlnic driver previously attempted to fetch pending transmission descriptors before all writes were complete, which lead to firmware hangs. With this update, the qlcnic driver has been fixed to complete all writes before the hardware fetches any pending transmission descriptors. As a result, the firmware no longer hangs with the qlcnic driver. (BZ#1403143) * Previously, when a NFS share was mounted, the file-system (FS) cache was incorrectly enabled even when the '-o fsc' option was not used in the mount command. Consequently, the cachefilesd service stored files in the NFS share even when not instructed to by the user. With this update, NFS does not use the FS cache if not instructed by the '-o fsc' option. As a result, NFS no longer enables caching if the '-o fsc' option is not used. (BZ#1399172) * Previously, an NFS client and NFS server got into a NFS4 protocol loop involving a WRITE action and a NFS4ERR_EXPIRED response when the current_fileid counter got to the wraparound point by overflowing the value of 32 bits. This update fixes the NFS server to handle the current_fileid wraparound. As a result, the described NFS4 protocol loop no longer occurs. (BZ#1399174) * Previously, certain configurations of the Hewlett Packard Smart Array (HPSA) devices caused hardware to be set offline incorrectly when the HPSA driver was expected to wait for existing I/O operations to complete. Consequently, a kernel panic occurred. This update prevents the described problem. As a result, the kernel panic no longer occurs. (BZ#1399175) * Previously, memory corruption by copying data into the wrong memory locations sometimes occurred, because the __copy_tofrom_user() function was returning incorrect values. This update fixes the __copy_tofrom_user() function so that it no longer returns larger values than the number of bytes it was asked to copy. As a result, memory corruption no longer occurs in he described scenario. (BZ#1398185) * Previously, guest virtual machines (VMs) on a Hyper-V server cluster got in some cases rebooted during the graceful node failover test, because the host kept sending heartbeat packets independently of guests responding to them. This update fixes the bug by properly responding to all the heartbeat messages in the queue, even if they are pending. As a result, guest VMs no longer get rebooted under the described circumstances. (BZ#1397739) * When the 'punching hole' feature of the fallocate utility was used on an ext4 file system inode with extent depth of 1, the extent tree of the inode sometimes became corrupted. With this update, the underlying source code has been fixed, and extent tree corruption no longer occurs in the described situation. (BZ#1397808)

    NASL id VIRTUOZZO_VZLSA-2017-0086.NASL
    description An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. These updated kernel packages include several security issues and numerous bug fixes, some of which you can see below. Space precludes documenting all of these bug fixes in this advisory. To see the complete list of bug fixes, users are directed to the related Knowledge Article: https://access.redhat.com/ articles/2857831. Security Fix(es) : * A use-after-free vulnerability was found in the kernel's socket recvmmsg subsystem. This may allow remote attackers to corrupt memory and may allow execution of arbitrary code. This corruption takes place during the error handling routines within __sys_recvmmsg() function. (CVE-2016-7117, Important) * A use-after-free vulnerability was found in tcp_xmit_retransmit_queue and other tcp_* functions. This condition could allow an attacker to send an incorrect selective acknowledgment to existing connections, possibly resetting a connection. (CVE-2016-6828, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's implementation of the SCTP protocol. A remote attacker could trigger an out-of-bounds read with an offset of up to 64kB potentially causing the system to crash. (CVE-2016-9555, Moderate) Bug Fix(es) : * Previously, the performance of Internet Protocol over InfiniBand (IPoIB) was suboptimal due to a conflict of IPoIB with the Generic Receive Offload (GRO) infrastructure. With this update, the data cached by the IPoIB driver has been moved from a control block into the IPoIB hard header, thus avoiding the GRO problem and the corruption of IPoIB address information. As a result, the performance of IPoIB has been improved. (BZ#1390668) * Previously, when a virtual machine (VM) with PCI-Passthrough interfaces was recreated, a race condition between the eventfd daemon and the virqfd daemon occurred. Consequently, the operating system rebooted. This update fixes the race condition. As a result, the operating system no longer reboots in the described situation. (BZ#1391611) * Previously, a packet loss occurred when the team driver in round-robin mode was sending a large number of packets. This update fixes counting of the packets in the round-robin runner of the team driver, and the packet loss no longer occurs in the described situation. (BZ#1392023) * Previously, the virtual network devices contained in the deleted namespace could be deleted in any order. If the loopback device was not deleted as the last item, other netns devices, such as vxlan devices, could end up with dangling references to the loopback device. Consequently, deleting a network namespace (netns) occasionally ended by a kernel oops. With this update, the underlying source code has been fixed to ensure the correct order when deleting the virtual network devices on netns deletion. As a result, the kernel oops no longer occurs under the described circumstances. (BZ#1392024) * Previously, a Kabylake system with a Sunrise Point Platform Controller Hub (PCH) with a PCI device ID of 0xA149 showed the following warning messages during the boot : 'Unknown Intel PCH (0xa149) detected.' 'Warning: Intel Kabylake processor with unknown PCH - this hardware has not undergone testing by Red Hat and might not be certified. Please consult https:/ /hardware.redhat.com for certified hardware.' The messages were shown because this PCH was not properly recognized. With this update, the problem has been fixed, and the operating system now boots without displaying the warning messages. (BZ#1392033) * Previously, the operating system occasionally became unresponsive after a long run. This was caused by a race condition between the try_to_wake_up() function and a woken up task in the core scheduler. With this update, the race condition has been fixed, and the operating system no longer locks up in the described scenario. (BZ#1393719) Note that Tenable Network Security has attempted to extract the preceding description block directly from the corresponding Red Hat security advisory. Virtuozzo provides no description for VZLSA advisories. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    NASL id VIRTUOZZO_VZA-2017-025.NASL
    description According to the versions of the parallels-server-bm-release / vzkernel / etc packages installed, the Virtuozzo installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities : - A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's handling of packets with the URG flag. Applications using the splice() and tcp_splice_read() functionality can allow a remote attacker to force the kernel to enter a condition in which it can loop indefinitely. - It was discovered that a remote attacker could leverage the generation of IPv6 atomic fragments to trigger the use of fragmentation in an arbitrary IPv6 flow (in scenarios in which actual fragmentation of packets is not needed) and could subsequently perform any type of a fragmentation-based attack against legacy IPv6 nodes that do not implement RFC6946. - It was found that the blk_rq_map_user_iov() function in the Linux kernel's block device implementation did not properly restrict the type of iterator, which could allow a local attacker to read or write to arbitrary kernel memory locations or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) by leveraging write access to a /dev/sg device. - A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's implementation of the SCTP protocol. A remote attacker could trigger an out-of-bounds read with an offset of up to 64kB potentially causing the system to crash. - A flaw was found in the Linux networking subsystem where a local attacker with CAP_NET_ADMIN capabilities could cause an out-of-bounds memory access by creating a smaller-than-expected ICMP header and sending to its destination via sendto(). - It was found that when file permissions were modified via chmod and the user modifying them was not in the owning group or capable of CAP_FSETID, the setgid bit would be cleared. Setting a POSIX ACL via setxattr sets the file permissions as well as the new ACL, but doesn't clear the setgid bit in a similar way. This could allow a local user to gain group privileges via certain setgid applications. - It was found that when the gcc stack protector was enabled, reading the /proc/keys file could cause a panic in the Linux kernel due to stack corruption. This happened because an incorrect buffer size was used to hold a 64-bit timeout value rendered as weeks. - A race condition flaw was found in the ioctl_send_fib() function in the Linux kernel's aacraid implementation. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds access or system crash) by changing a certain size value. - When creating audit records for parameters to executed children processes, an attacker can convince the Linux kernel audit subsystem can create corrupt records which may allow an attacker to misrepresent or evade logging of executing commands. - A flaw was discovered in the way the Linux kernel dealt with paging structures. When the kernel invalidated a paging structure that was not in use locally, it could, in principle, race against another CPU that is switching to a process that uses the paging structure in question. A local user could use a thread running with a stale cached virtual->physical translation to potentially escalate their privileges if the translation in question were writable and the physical page got reused for something critical (for example, a page table). - A flaw was found in the USB-MIDI Linux kernel driver: a double-free error could be triggered for the 'umidi' object. An attacker with physical access to the system could use this flaw to escalate their privileges. Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Virtuozzo security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description CAI Qian discovered that shared bind mounts in a mount namespace exponentially added entries without restriction to the Linux kernel's mount table. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2016-6213) Andreas Gruenbacher and Jan Kara discovered that the filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel did not clear the setgid bit during a setxattr call. A local attacker could use this to possibly elevate group privileges. (CVE-2016-7097) Marco Grassi discovered that the driver for Areca RAID Controllers in the Linux kernel did not properly validate control messages. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly gain privileges. (CVE-2016-7425) It was discovered that the KVM implementation for x86/x86_64 in the Linux kernel could dereference a NULL pointer. An attacker in a guest virtual machine could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) in the KVM host. (CVE-2016-8630) Eyal Itkin discovered that the IP over IEEE 1394 (FireWire) implementation in the Linux kernel contained a buffer overflow when handling fragmented packets. A remote attacker could use this to possibly execute arbitrary code with administrative privileges.

A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2016-8645) It was discovered that the keyring implementation in the Linux kernel improperly handled crypto registration in conjunction with successful key- type registration. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).

    NASL id OPENSUSE-2016-1426.NASL
    description The openSUSE Leap 42.2 kernel was updated to 4.4.36 to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2015-1350: The VFS subsystem in the Linux kernel 3.x provides an incomplete set of requirements for setattr operations that underspecifies removing extended privilege attributes, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (capability stripping) via a failed invocation of a system call, as demonstrated by using chown to remove a capability from the ping or Wireshark dumpcap program (bnc#914939). - CVE-2015-8964: The tty_set_termios_ldisc function in drivers/tty/tty_ldisc.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by reading a tty data structure (bnc#1010507). - CVE-2016-7042: The proc_keys_show function in security/keys/proc.c in the Linux kernel through 4.8.2, when the GNU Compiler Collection (gcc) stack protector is enabled, uses an incorrect buffer size for certain timeout data, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (stack memory corruption and panic) by reading the /proc/keys file (bnc#1004517). - CVE-2016-7913: The xc2028_set_config function in drivers/media/tuners/tuner-xc2028.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) via vectors involving omission of the firmware name from a certain data structure (bnc#1010478). - CVE-2016-7917: The nfnetlink_rcv_batch function in net/netfilter/nfnetlink.c in the Linux kernel did not check whether a batch message's length field is large enough, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory or cause a denial of service (infinite loop or out-of-bounds read) by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability (bnc#1010444). - CVE-2016-8632: The tipc_msg_build function in net/tipc/msg.c in the Linux kernel did not validate the relationship between the minimum fragment length and the maximum packet size, which allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability (bnc#1008831). - CVE-2016-8655: A race condition in the af_packet packet_set_ring function could be used by local attackers to crash the kernel or gain privileges (bsc#1012754). - CVE-2016-8666: The IP stack in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (stack consumption and panic) or possibly have unspecified other impact by triggering use of the GRO path for packets with tunnel stacking, as demonstrated by interleaved IPv4 headers and GRE headers, a related issue to CVE-2016-7039 (bnc#1001486). - CVE-2016-9083: drivers/vfio/pci/vfio_pci.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to bypass integer overflow checks, and cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or have unspecified other impact, by leveraging access to a vfio PCI device file for a VFIO_DEVICE_SET_IRQS ioctl call, aka a 'state machine confusion bug (bnc#1007197). - CVE-2016-9084: drivers/vfio/pci/vfio_pci_intrs.c in the Linux kernel misuses the kzalloc function, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (integer overflow) or have unspecified other impact by leveraging access to a vfio PCI device file (bnc#1007197). - CVE-2016-9555: The sctp_sf_ootb function in net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c in the Linux kernel lacks chunk-length checking for the first chunk, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds slab access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted SCTP data (bnc#1011685). - CVE-2016-9794: A use-after-free in alsa pcm could lead to crashes or allowed local users to potentially gain privileges (bsc#1013533). The following non-security bugs were fixed : - acpi / pad: do not register acpi_pad driver if running as Xen dom0 (bnc#995278). - Add power key support for PMIcs which are already included in the configs (boo#1012477).

  • NASL family Oracle Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2017-0086.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2017:0086 : An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. These updated kernel packages include several security issues and numerous bug fixes, some of which you can see below. Space precludes documenting all of these bug fixes in this advisory. To see the complete list of bug fixes, users are directed to the related Knowledge Article: https://access.redhat.com/ articles/2857831. Security Fix(es) : * A use-after-free vulnerability was found in the kernel's socket recvmmsg subsystem. This may allow remote attackers to corrupt memory and may allow execution of arbitrary code. This corruption takes place during the error handling routines within __sys_recvmmsg() function. (CVE-2016-7117, Important) * A use-after-free vulnerability was found in tcp_xmit_retransmit_queue and other tcp_* functions. This condition could allow an attacker to send an incorrect selective acknowledgment to existing connections, possibly resetting a connection. (CVE-2016-6828, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's implementation of the SCTP protocol. A remote attacker could trigger an out-of-bounds read with an offset of up to 64kB potentially causing the system to crash. (CVE-2016-9555, Moderate) Bug Fix(es) : * Previously, the performance of Internet Protocol over InfiniBand (IPoIB) was suboptimal due to a conflict of IPoIB with the Generic Receive Offload (GRO) infrastructure. With this update, the data cached by the IPoIB driver has been moved from a control block into the IPoIB hard header, thus avoiding the GRO problem and the corruption of IPoIB address information. As a result, the performance of IPoIB has been improved. (BZ#1390668) * Previously, when a virtual machine (VM) with PCI-Passthrough interfaces was recreated, a race condition between the eventfd daemon and the virqfd daemon occurred. Consequently, the operating system rebooted. This update fixes the race condition. As a result, the operating system no longer reboots in the described situation. (BZ#1391611) * Previously, a packet loss occurred when the team driver in round-robin mode was sending a large number of packets. This update fixes counting of the packets in the round-robin runner of the team driver, and the packet loss no longer occurs in the described situation. (BZ#1392023) * Previously, the virtual network devices contained in the deleted namespace could be deleted in any order. If the loopback device was not deleted as the last item, other netns devices, such as vxlan devices, could end up with dangling references to the loopback device. Consequently, deleting a network namespace (netns) occasionally ended by a kernel oops. With this update, the underlying source code has been fixed to ensure the correct order when deleting the virtual network devices on netns deletion. As a result, the kernel oops no longer occurs under the described circumstances. (BZ#1392024) * Previously, a Kabylake system with a Sunrise Point Platform Controller Hub (PCH) with a PCI device ID of 0xA149 showed the following warning messages during the boot : 'Unknown Intel PCH (0xa149) detected.' 'Warning: Intel Kabylake processor with unknown PCH - this hardware has not undergone testing by Red Hat and might not be certified. Please consult https:/ /hardware.redhat.com for certified hardware.' The messages were shown because this PCH was not properly recognized. With this update, the problem has been fixed, and the operating system now boots without displaying the warning messages. (BZ#1392033) * Previously, the operating system occasionally became unresponsive after a long run. This was caused by a race condition between the try_to_wake_up() function and a woken up task in the core scheduler. With this update, the race condition has been fixed, and the operating system no longer locks up in the described scenario. (BZ#1393719)

    description This update for the Linux Kernel 3.12.51-52_31 fixes several issues. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2016-8655: A race condition in the af_packet packet_set_ring function could be used by local attackers to crash the kernel or gain privileges (bsc#1012759). - CVE-2016-9555: The sctp_sf_ootb function in net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c in the Linux kernel lacks chunk-length checking for the first chunk, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds slab access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted SCTP data (bsc#1012183). - CVE-2016-7117: Use-after-free vulnerability in the __sys_recvmmsg function in net/socket.c in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via vectors involving a recvmmsg system call that is mishandled during error processing (bsc#1003253). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    title SUSE SLES12 Security Update : kernel (SUSE-SU-2016:3111-1)
  • NASL family Scientific Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id SL_20170223_KERNEL_ON_SL6_X.NASL
    description Security Fix(es) : - When creating audit records for parameters to executed children processes, an attacker can convince the Linux kernel audit subsystem can create corrupt records which may allow an attacker to misrepresent or evade logging of executing commands. (CVE-2016-6136, Moderate) - A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's implementation of the SCTP protocol. A remote attacker could trigger an out-of-bounds read with an offset of up to 64kB potentially causing the system to crash. (CVE-2016-9555, Moderate) Bug Fix(es) : - The qlnic driver previously attempted to fetch pending transmission descriptors before all writes were complete, which lead to firmware hangs. With this update, the qlcnic driver has been fixed to complete all writes before the hardware fetches any pending transmission descriptors. As a result, the firmware no longer hangs with the qlcnic driver. - Previously, when a NFS share was mounted, the file-system (FS) cache was incorrectly enabled even when the '-o fsc' option was not used in the mount command. Consequently, the cachefilesd service stored files in the NFS share even when not instructed to by the user. With this update, NFS does not use the FS cache if not instructed by the '-o fsc' option. As a result, NFS no longer enables caching if the '-o fsc' option is not used. - Previously, an NFS client and NFS server got into a NFS4 protocol loop involving a WRITE action and a NFS4ERR_EXPIRED response when the current_fileid counter got to the wraparound point by overflowing the value of 32 bits. This update fixes the NFS server to handle the current_fileid wraparound. As a result, the described NFS4 protocol loop no longer occurs. - Previously, certain configurations of the Hewlett Packard Smart Array (HPSA) devices caused hardware to be set offline incorrectly when the HPSA driver was expected to wait for existing I/O operations to complete. Consequently, a kernel panic occurred. This update prevents the described problem. As a result, the kernel panic no longer occurs. - Previously, memory corruption by copying data into the wrong memory locations sometimes occurred, because the __copy_tofrom_user() function was returning incorrect values. This update fixes the __copy_tofrom_user() function so that it no longer returns larger values than the number of bytes it was asked to copy. As a result, memory corruption no longer occurs in he described scenario. - Previously, guest virtual machines (VMs) on a Hyper-V server cluster got in some cases rebooted during the graceful node failover test, because the host kept sending heartbeat packets independently of guests responding to them. This update fixes the bug by properly responding to all the heartbeat messages in the queue, even if they are pending. As a result, guest VMs no longer get rebooted under the described circumstances. - When the 'punching hole' feature of the fallocate utility was used on an ext4 file system inode with extent depth of 1, the extent tree of the inode sometimes became corrupted. With this update, the underlying source code has been fixed, and extent tree corruption no longer occurs in the described situation.

    description This update for the Linux Kernel 3.12.51-52_39 fixes several issues. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2016-8655: A race condition in the af_packet packet_set_ring function could be used by local attackers to crash the kernel or gain privileges (bsc#1012759). - CVE-2016-9555: The sctp_sf_ootb function in net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c in the Linux kernel lacks chunk-length checking for the first chunk, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds slab access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted SCTP data (bsc#1012183). - CVE-2016-7117: Use-after-free vulnerability in the __sys_recvmmsg function in net/socket.c in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via vectors involving a recvmmsg system call that is mishandled during error processing (bsc#1003253). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory.

    description An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security Fix(es) : * When creating audit records for parameters to executed children processes, an attacker can convince the Linux kernel audit subsystem can create corrupt records which may allow an attacker to misrepresent or evade logging of executing commands. (CVE-2016-6136, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's implementation of the SCTP protocol. A remote attacker could trigger an out-of-bounds read with an offset of up to 64kB potentially causing the system to crash. (CVE-2016-9555, Moderate) Bug Fix(es) : * The qlnic driver previously attempted to fetch pending transmission descriptors before all writes were complete, which lead to firmware hangs. With this update, the qlcnic driver has been fixed to complete all writes before the hardware fetches any pending transmission descriptors. As a result, the firmware no longer hangs with the qlcnic driver. (BZ#1403143) * Previously, when a NFS share was mounted, the file-system (FS) cache was incorrectly enabled even when the '-o fsc' option was not used in the mount command. Consequently, the cachefilesd service stored files in the NFS share even when not instructed to by the user. With this update, NFS does not use the FS cache if not instructed by the '-o fsc' option. As a result, NFS no longer enables caching if the '-o fsc' option is not used. (BZ# 1399172) * Previously, an NFS client and NFS server got into a NFS4 protocol loop involving a WRITE action and a NFS4ERR_EXPIRED response when the current_fileid counter got to the wraparound point by overflowing the value of 32 bits. This update fixes the NFS server to handle the current_fileid wraparound. As a result, the described NFS4 protocol loop no longer occurs. (BZ#1399174) * Previously, certain configurations of the Hewlett Packard Smart Array (HPSA) devices caused hardware to be set offline incorrectly when the HPSA driver was expected to wait for existing I/O operations to complete. Consequently, a kernel panic occurred. This update prevents the described problem. As a result, the kernel panic no longer occurs. (BZ#1399175) * Previously, memory corruption by copying data into the wrong memory locations sometimes occurred, because the __copy_tofrom_user() function was returning incorrect values. This update fixes the __copy_tofrom_user() function so that it no longer returns larger values than the number of bytes it was asked to copy. As a result, memory corruption no longer occurs in he described scenario. (BZ#1398185) * Previously, guest virtual machines (VMs) on a Hyper-V server cluster got in some cases rebooted during the graceful node failover test, because the host kept sending heartbeat packets independently of guests responding to them. This update fixes the bug by properly responding to all the heartbeat messages in the queue, even if they are pending. As a result, guest VMs no longer get rebooted under the described circumstances. (BZ#1397739) * When the 'punching hole' feature of the fallocate utility was used on an ext4 file system inode with extent depth of 1, the extent tree of the inode sometimes became corrupted. With this update, the underlying source code has been fixed, and extent tree corruption no longer occurs in the described situation. (BZ#1397808)

    description To see the complete list of bug fixes, users are directed to the related Knowledge Article : Security Fix(es) : - A use-after-free vulnerability was found in the kernel's socket recvmmsg subsystem. This may allow remote attackers to corrupt memory and may allow execution of arbitrary code. This corruption takes place during the error handling routines within __sys_recvmmsg() function. (CVE-2016-7117, Important) - A use-after-free vulnerability was found in tcp_xmit_retransmit_queue and other tcp_* functions. This condition could allow an attacker to send an incorrect selective acknowledgment to existing connections, possibly resetting a connection. (CVE-2016-6828, Moderate) - A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's implementation of the SCTP protocol. A remote attacker could trigger an out-of-bounds read with an offset of up to 64kB potentially causing the system to crash. (CVE-2016-9555, Moderate) Bug Fix(es) : - Previously, the performance of Internet Protocol over InfiniBand (IPoIB) was suboptimal due to a conflict of IPoIB with the Generic Receive Offload (GRO) infrastructure. With this update, the data cached by the IPoIB driver has been moved from a control block into the IPoIB hard header, thus avoiding the GRO problem and the corruption of IPoIB address information. As a result, the performance of IPoIB has been improved. - Previously, when a virtual machine (VM) with PCI-Passthrough interfaces was recreated, a race condition between the eventfd daemon and the virqfd daemon occurred. Consequently, the operating system rebooted. This update fixes the race condition. As a result, the operating system no longer reboots in the described situation. - Previously, a packet loss occurred when the team driver in round-robin mode was sending a large number of packets. This update fixes counting of the packets in the round-robin runner of the team driver, and the packet loss no longer occurs in the described situation. - Previously, the virtual network devices contained in the deleted namespace could be deleted in any order. If the loopback device was not deleted as the last item, other netns devices, such as vxlan devices, could end up with dangling references to the loopback device. Consequently, deleting a network namespace (netns) occasionally ended by a kernel oops. With this update, the underlying source code has been fixed to ensure the correct order when deleting the virtual network devices on netns deletion. As a result, the kernel oops no longer occurs under the described circumstances. - Previously, a Kabylake system with a Sunrise Point Platform Controller Hub (PCH) with a PCI device ID of 0xA149 showed the following warning messages during the boot : 'Unknown Intel PCH (0xa149) detected.' 'Warning: Intel Kabylake processor with unknown PCH - this hardware has not undergone testing ...' The messages were shown because this PCH was not properly recognized. With this update, the problem has been fixed, and the operating system now boots without displaying the warning messages. - Previously, the operating system occasionally became unresponsive after a long run. This was caused by a race condition between the try_to_wake_up() function and a woken up task in the core scheduler. With this update, the race condition has been fixed, and the operating system no longer locks up in the described scenario.
