EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : kernel (EulerOS-SA-2019-1131)

High Nessus Plugin ID 123605

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the kernel packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A division-by-zero in set_termios(), when debugging is enabled, was found in the Linux kernel. When the [io_ti] driver is loaded, a local unprivileged attacker can request incorrect high transfer speed in the change_port_settings() in the drivers/usb/serial/io_ti.c so that the divisor value becomes zero and causes a system crash resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2017-18360)

- Since Linux kernel version 3.2, the mremap() syscall performs TLB flushes after dropping pagetable locks. If a syscall such as ftruncate() removes entries from the pagetables of a task that is in the middle of mremap(), a stale TLB entry can remain for a short time that permits access to a physical page after it has been released back to the page allocator and reused.(CVE-2018-18281)

- A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel's USB subsystem in the __usb_get_extra_descriptor() function in the drivers/usb/core/usb.c which mishandles a size check during the reading of an extra descriptor data.
By using a specially crafted USB device which sends a forged extra descriptor, an unprivileged user with physical access to the system can potentially cause a privilege escalation or trigger a system crash or lock up and thus to cause a denial of service (DoS).(CVE-2018-20169)

- It was found that the Linux kernel can hit a BUG_ON() statement in the __xfs_get_blocks() in the fs/xfs/xfs_aops.c because of a race condition between direct and memory-mapped I/O associated with a hole in a file that is handled with BUG_ON() instead of an I/O failure. This allows a local unprivileged attacker to cause a system crash and a denial of service.(CVE-2016-10741)

- A use-after-free flaw can occur in the Linux kernel due to a race condition between packet_do_bind() and packet_notifier() functions called for an AF_PACKET socket. An unprivileged, local user could use this flaw to induce kernel memory corruption on the system, leading to an unresponsive system or to a crash. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out. (CVE-2018-18559)

- An issue was discovered in can_can_gw_rcv in net/can/gw.c in the Linux kernel through 4.19.13. The CAN frame modification rules allow bitwise logical operations that can be also applied to the can_dlc field. Because of a missing check, the CAN drivers may write arbitrary content beyond the data registers in the CAN controller's I/O memory when processing can-gw manipulated outgoing frames. This is related to cgw_csum_xor_rel. An unprivileged user can trigger a system crash (general protection fault).(CVE-2019-3701)

- A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's ext4 filesystem.
A local user can cause a use-after-free in ext4_xattr_set_entry function and a denial of service or unspecified other impact may occur by renaming a file in a crafted ext4 filesystem image.(CVE-2018-10879)

- A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's ext4 filesystem.
A local user can cause an out-of-bound write in jbd2_journal_dirty_metadata(), a denial of service, and a system crash by mounting and operating on a crafted ext4 filesystem image.(CVE-2018-10883)

- It was found that the raw midi kernel driver does not protect against concurrent access which leads to a double realloc (double free) in snd_rawmidi_input_params() and snd_rawmidi_output_status() which are part of snd_rawmidi_ioctl() handler in rawmidi.c file. A malicious local attacker could possibly use this for privilege escalation.(CVE-2018-10902)

- The Linux kernel is vulnerable to a NULL pointer dereference in the ext4/xattr.c:ext4_xattr_inode_hash() function. An attacker could trick a legitimate user or a privileged attacker could exploit this to cause a NULL pointer dereference with a crafted ext4 image.
(CVE-2018-1094)

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.

Solution

Update the affected kernel packages.
