Virtuozzo 7 : readykernel-patch (VZA-2017-067)

High Nessus Plugin ID 102205


The remote Virtuozzo host is missing a security update.


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 :

- A vulnerability was found in the handling of xfrm Netlink messages. A privileged user inside a container could cause a denial of service (kernel crash) by sending a crafted Netlink message with type XFRM_MSG_MIGRATE to the kernel.

- Integer overflow vulnerability in ip6_find_1stfragopt() function was found. Local attacker that has privileges to open raw sockets can cause infinite loop inside ip6_find_1stfragopt() function.

- Kernel memory corruption due to a buffer overflow was found in brcmf_cfg80211_mgmt_tx() function in Linux kernels from v3.9-rc1 to v4.13-rc1. The vulnerability can be triggered by sending a crafted NL80211_CMD_FRAME packet via netlink. An unprivileged local user could use this flaw to induce kernel memory corruption on the system, leading to a crash.

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.


Update the readykernel patch.
