New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 6.7
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.
DescriptionAccording to the versions of the kernel packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- A an integer overflow vulnerability was discovered in the Linux kernel, from version 3.4 through 4.15, in the drivers/gpu/drm/udl/udl_fb.c:udl_fb_mmap() function. An attacker with access to the udldrmfb driver could exploit this to obtain full read and write permissions on kernel physical pages, resulting in a code execution in kernel space.(CVE-2018-8781)
- ALSA sequencer core initializes the event pool on demand by invoking snd_seq_pool_init() when the first write happens and the pool is empty. A user can reset the pool size manually via ioctl concurrently, and this may lead to UAF or out-of-bound access.(CVE-2018-7566)
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected kernel packages.
