Virtuozzo 6 : parallels-server-bm-release / vzkernel / etc (VZA-2018-075)

high Nessus Plugin ID 121098
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Virtuozzo host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the parallels-server-bm-release / vzkernel / etc packages installed, the Virtuozzo installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A flaw named FragmentSmack was found in the way the Linux kernel handled reassembly of fragmented IPv4 and IPv6 packets. A remote attacker could use this flaw to trigger time and calculation expensive fragment reassembly algorithm by sending specially crafted packets which could lead to a CPU saturation and hence a denial of service on the system.

- An integer overflow flaw was found in the Linux kernel's create_elf_tables() function. An unprivileged local user with access to SUID (or otherwise privileged) binary could use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system (Mutagen Astronomy).

- The Linux Kernel imposes a size restriction on the arguments and environmental strings passed through RLIMIT_STACK/RLIMIT_INFINITY, but does not take the argument and environment pointers into account, which allows attackers to bypass this limitation.

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 affected parallels-server-bm-release / vzkernel / etc packages.
