Virtuozzo 7 : readykernel-patch (VZA-2018-049)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 111527


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 :

- It was discovered that the local users could create
files with an unintended group ownership and with group
execution and SGID permission bits set. It was possible
when a directory was SGID, belonged to a certain group
and was writable by a user who was not a member of this
group. This could lead to excessive permissions granted
in case when they should not.

- A flaw was discovered in the implementation of SCTP
protocol. A local unprivileged user could exploit it to
cause soft lockups in the kernel (and, eventually, a
denial of service) using specially crafted sequences 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.


Update the readykernel patch.
