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 :

- A vulnerability was found in DCCP socket handling code.
dccp_disconnect() set the socket state to DCCP_CLOSED but did not properly free some of the resources associated with that socket. This could result in a use-after-free and could potentially allow an attacker to escalate their privileges.

- The Linux kernel is vulnerable to a use-after-free issue. It could occur while closing a xfrm netlink socket, in xfrm_dump_policy_done. A user/process could use this flaw to potentially escalate their privileges on a system.

- The function get_net_ns_by_id() does not check the net.count value when processing a peer network, which could lead to double free and memory corruption. An unprivileged local user could use this vulnerability to crash the system.

- If the system uses iptables and there are iptables rules with TCPMSS action there, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service (use-after-free in tcpmss_mangle_packet function leading to memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact by sending specially crafted network packets.

- A flaw was found in the patches used to fix the 'Dirty COW' vulnerability (CVE-2016-5195). An attacker, able to run local code, could exploit a race condition in transparent huge pages to modify usually read-only huge pages.

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.
