EulerOS Virtualization 2.5.4 : kernel (EulerOS-SA-2019-1229)

High Nessus Plugin ID 123697

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

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

- The Linux kernel is vulnerable to a NULL pointer dereference in the ext4/mballoc.c:ext4_process_freed_data() function. An attacker could trick a legitimate user or a privileged attacker could exploit this by mounting a crafted ext4 image to cause a kernel panic.(CVE-2018-1092)

- The resv_map_release function in mm/hugetlb.c in the Linux kernel, through 4.15.7, allows local users to cause a denial of service (BUG) via a crafted application that makes mmap system calls and has a large pgoff argument to the remap_file_pages system call.(CVE-2018-7740)

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.
