Debian DLA-1392-1 : linux security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 110314

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service.

CVE-2018-1093

Wen Xu reported that a crafted ext4 filesystem image could trigger an out-of-bounds read in the ext4_valid_block_bitmap() function. A local user able to mount arbitrary filesystems could use this for denial of service.

CVE-2018-1130

The syzbot software found that the DCCP implementation of sendmsg() does not check the socket state, potentially leading to a NULL pointer dereference. A local user could use this to cause a denial of service (crash).

CVE-2018-8897

Nick Peterson of Everdox Tech LLC discovered that #DB exceptions that are deferred by MOV SS or POP SS are not properly handled, allowing an unprivileged user to crash the kernel and cause a denial of service.

CVE-2018-10940

Dan Carpenter reported that the cdrom driver does not correctly validate the parameter to the CDROM_MEDIA_CHANGED ioctl. A user with access to a cdrom device could use this to cause a denial of service (crash).

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 3.2.102-1. This version also includes bug fixes from upstream version 3.2.102, including a fix for a regression in the SCTP implementation in version 3.2.101.

We recommend that you upgrade your linux packages.
