New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote Virtuozzo host is missing a security update.

Description

According to the version of the vzkernel package and the readykernel-patch installed, the Virtuozzo installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- The NFSv4 server in the Linux kernel compiled with CONFIG_NFSD_PNFS enabled does not properly validate layout type when processing NFSv4 pNFS LAYOUTGET and GETDEVICEINFO operands. The attack payload fits to single one-way UDP packet. The provided input value is used for array dereferencing. This may lead to a remote DoS of [knfsd] and so to a soft-lockup of a whole system.

- A vulnerability was found in the implementation of setsockopt() operations in the Linux kernel. A privileged user inside a container could cause a DoS attack on the host (kernel deadlock in ip_ra_control() function) using a specially crafted sequence of system calls.

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.

Solution

Update the readykernel patch.
