Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : kernel (MDVSA-2013:242)

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in the Linux
kernel :

Multiple array index errors in drivers/hid/hid-core.c in the Human
Interface Device (HID) subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11
allow physically proximate attackers to execute arbitrary code or
cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via a crafted
device that provides an invalid Report ID (CVE-2013-2888).

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,
allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service
(heap-based out-of-bounds write) via a crafted device (CVE-2013-2889).

drivers/hid/hid-pl.c in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem in
the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_HID_PANTHERLORD is enabled,
allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service
(heap-based out-of-bounds write) via a crafted device (CVE-2013-2892).

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, allows 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
(CVE-2013-2893).

drivers/hid/hid-logitech-dj.c in the Human Interface Device (HID)
subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when
CONFIG_HID_LOGITECH_DJ is enabled, allows physically proximate
attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and
OOPS) or obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via a crafted
device (CVE-2013-2895).

drivers/hid/hid-ntrig.c in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem
in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_HID_NTRIG is enabled,
allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service
(NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted device
(CVE-2013-2896).

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, allow physically
proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory
corruption, or NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted device
(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, allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of
service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted device
(CVE-2013-2899).

The udp_v6_push_pending_frames function in net/ipv6/udp.c in the IPv6
implementation in the Linux kernel through 3.10.3 makes an incorrect
function call for pending data, which allows local users to cause a
denial of service (BUG and system crash) via a crafted application
that uses the UDP_CORK option in a setsockopt system call
(CVE-2013-4162).

The ip6_append_data_mtu function in net/ipv6/ip6_output.c in the IPv6
implementation in the Linux kernel through 3.10.3 does not properly
maintain information about whether the IPV6_MTU setsockopt option had
been specified, which allows local users to cause a denial of service
(BUG and system crash) via a crafted application that uses the
UDP_CORK option in a setsockopt system call (CVE-2013-4163).

The validate_event function in arch/arm/kernel/perf_event.c in the
Linux kernel before 3.10.8 on the ARM platform allows local users to
gain privileges or cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference
and system crash) by adding a hardware event to an event group led by
a software event (CVE-2013-4254

The updated packages provides a solution for these security issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.9
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
CVSS Temporal Score : 6.0
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : true
