openSUSE Security Update : the Linux Kernel (openSUSE-2016-1426)

This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

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).

- acpi / pad: do not register acpi_pad driver if running

check (bsc#843661). Without kernel module signature
check, the root account is allowed to load arbitrary
kernel module to kernel space. Then lock functions by
securelevel is pointless.
