EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 188.8.131.52 : kernel (EulerOS-SA-2019-1500)
High Nessus Plugin ID 124823
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 host is missing multiple security updates.
DescriptionAccording to the versions of the kernel packages installed, the EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- The IPv6 DCCP implementation in the Linux kernel mishandles inheritance, which allows local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted system calls, a related issue to CVE-2017-8890. An unprivileged local user could use this flaw to induce kernel memory corruption on the system, leading to a crash. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out, although we believe it is unlikely.(CVE-2017-9076)
- It was found that the driver_override implementation in base/platform.c in the Linux kernel is susceptible to race condition when different threads are reading vs storing a different driver override.(CVE-2017-12146)
- 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.(CVE-2017-1000365)
- A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's eCryptfs implementation decoded encrypted file names. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system.(CVE-2014-9683)
- The Linux kernel was found vulnerable to an integer overflow in the drivers/video/fbdev/uvesafb.c:uvesafb_setcmap() function. The vulnerability could result in local attackers being able to crash the kernel or potentially elevate privileges.(CVE-2018-13406)
- net/ceph/auth_x.c in Ceph, as used in the Linux kernel before 3.16.3, does not properly validate auth replies, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted data from the IP address of a Ceph Monitor.(CVE-2014-6418)
- A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Common Internet File System (CIFS) implementation handled mounting of file system shares.
A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash a client system that would mount a file system share from a malicious server.(CVE-2014-7145)
- The udp6_ufo_fragment function in net/ipv6/udp_offload.c in the Linux kernel through 3.12, when UDP Fragmentation Offload (UFO) is enabled, does not properly perform a certain size comparison before inserting a fragment header, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via a large IPv6 UDP packet, as demonstrated by use of the Token Bucket Filter (TBF) queueing discipline.(CVE-2013-4563)
- The do_umount function in fs/namespace.c in the Linux kernel through 3.17 does not require the CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability for do_remount_sb calls that change the root filesystem to read-only, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (loss of writability) by making certain unshare system calls, clearing the / MNT_LOCKED flag, and making an MNT_FORCE umount system call.(CVE-2014-7975)
- drivers/tty/n_tty.c in the Linux kernel before 4.14.11 allows local attackers (who are able to access pseudo terminals) to hang/block further usage of any pseudo terminal devices due to an EXTPROC versus ICANON confusion in TIOCINQ.(CVE-2018-18386)
