Ubuntu 14.04 LTS : linux vulnerabilities (USN-3422-1) (BlueBorne)

High Nessus Plugin ID 103326

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

It was discovered that a buffer overflow existed in the Bluetooth stack of the Linux kernel when handling L2CAP configuration responses.
A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2017-1000251)

It was discovered that the asynchronous I/O (aio) subsystem of the Linux kernel did not properly set permissions on aio memory mappings in some situations. An attacker could use this to more easily exploit other vulnerabilities. (CVE-2016-10044)

Baozeng Ding and Andrey Konovalov discovered a race condition in the L2TPv3 IP Encapsulation implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-10200)

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)

Sergej Schumilo, Ralf Spenneberg, and Hendrik Schwartke discovered that the key management subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly allocate memory in some situations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2016-8650)

Vlad Tsyrklevich discovered an integer overflow vulnerability in the VFIO PCI driver for the Linux kernel. A local attacker with access to a vfio PCI device file could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-9083, CVE-2016-9084)

It was discovered that an information leak existed in
__get_user_asm_ex() in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2016-9178)

CAI Qian discovered that the sysctl implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly perform reference counting in some situations. An unprivileged attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system hang). (CVE-2016-9191)

It was discovered that the keyring implementation in the Linux kernel in some situations did not prevent special internal keyrings from being joined by userspace keyrings. A privileged local attacker could use this to bypass module verification. (CVE-2016-9604)

It was discovered that an integer overflow existed in the trace subsystem of the Linux kernel. A local privileged attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2016-9754)

Andrey Konovalov discovered that the IPv4 implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly handle invalid IP options in some situations.
An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5970)

Dmitry Vyukov discovered that the Linux kernel did not properly handle TCP packets with the URG flag. A remote attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2017-6214)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the AF_PACKET handling code in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-6346)

It was discovered that the keyring implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly restrict searches for dead keys. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2017-6951)

Dmitry Vyukov discovered that the generic SCSI (sg) subsystem in the Linux kernel contained a stack-based buffer overflow. A local attacker with access to an sg device could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-7187)

Eric Biggers discovered a memory leak in the keyring implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (memory consumption). (CVE-2017-7472)

It was discovered that a buffer overflow existed in the Broadcom FullMAC WLAN driver in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-7541).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
