EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 188.8.131.52 : kernel (EulerOS-SA-2019-1505)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 124828
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 :
- 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.(CVE-2018-5391)
- Multiple out-of-bounds write flaws were found in the way the Cherry Cymotion keyboard driver, KYE/Genius device drivers, Logitech device drivers, Monterey Genius KB29E keyboard driver, Petalynx Maxter remote control driver, and Sunplus wireless desktop driver handled HID reports with an invalid report descriptor size. An attacker with physical access to the system could use either of these flaws to write data past an allocated memory buffer.(CVE-2014-3184)
- The __get_data_block function in fs/f2fs/data.c in the Linux kernel before 4.11 allows local users to cause a denial of service (integer overflow and loop) via crafted use of the open and fallocate system calls with an FS_IOC_FIEMAP ioctl.(CVE-2017-18257)
- net/netfilter/xt_osf.c in the Linux kernel through 4.14.4 does not require the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for add_callback and remove_callback operations. This allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions because the xt_osf_fingers data structure is shared across all network namespaces.(CVE-2017-17450)
- A denial of service flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel, where a race condition caused a NULL pointer dereference in the RDS socket-creation code. A local attacker could use this flaw to create a situation in which a NULL pointer crashed the kernel.(CVE-2015-7990)
- An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel before 4.19.9. The USB subsystem mishandles size checks during the reading of an extra descriptor, related to
__usb_get_extra_descriptor in drivers/usb/core/usb.c.(CVE-2018-20169)
- mm/memory.c in the Linux kernel before 4.1.4 mishandles anonymous pages, which allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (page tainting) via a crafted application that triggers writing to page zero.(CVE-2015-3288)
- The ovl_setattr function in fs/overlayfs/inode.c in the Linux kernel through 4.3.3 attempts to merge distinct setattr operations, which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions and modify the attributes of arbitrary overlay files via a crafted application.(CVE-2015-8660)
- A flaw was found in the Linux kernel where a local user with a shell account can abuse the userfaultfd syscall when using hugetlbfs. A missing size check in hugetlb_mcopy_atomic_pte could create an invalid inode variable, leading to a kernel panic.(CVE-2017-15128)
- An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the lzo1x_decompress_safe() function of the Linux kernel's LZO implementation processed Literal Runs. A local attacker could, in extremely rare cases, use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system.(CVE-2014-4608)
- It was found that Linux kernel's ptrace subsystem did not properly sanitize the address-space-control bits when the program-status word (PSW) was being set. On IBM S/390 systems, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to set address-space-control bits to the kernel space, and thus gain read and write access to kernel memory.(CVE-2014-3534)
- A use-after-free flaw was found in the Linux kernel's file system encryption implementation. A local user could revoke keyring keys being used for ext4, f2fs, or ubifs encryption, causing a denial of service on the system.(CVE-2017-7374)
- The usbip_recv_xbuff function in drivers/usb/usbip/usbip_common.c in the Linux kernel before 4.5.3 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted length value in a USB/IP packet.(CVE-2016-3955)
- A flaw was found in the patches used to fix the 'dirtycow' vulnerability (CVE-2016-5195). An attacker, able to run local code, can exploit a race condition in transparent huge pages to modify usually read-only huge pages.(CVE-2017-1000405)
- The aio_mount function in fs/aio.c in the Linux kernel does not properly restrict execute access, which makes it easier for local users to bypass intended SELinux W^X policy restrictions.(CVE-2016-10044)
- The Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) implementation in the Linux kernel mishandles a mutex within libsas. This allows local users to cause a denial of service (deadlock) by triggering certain error-handling code.(CVE-2017-18232)
- A use-after-free vulnerability was found in tcp_xmit_retransmit_queue and other tcp_* functions.
This condition could allow an attacker to send an incorrect selective acknowledgment to existing connections, possibly resetting a connection.(CVE-2016-6828)
- The instruction decoder in arch/x86/kvm/emulate.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.18-rc2 does not properly handle invalid instructions, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and host OS crash) via a crafted application that triggers (1) an improperly fetched instruction or (2) an instruction that occupies too many bytes. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2014-8480.(CVE-2014-8481)
- The snd_compress_check_input function in sound/core/compress_offload.c in the ALSA subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.17 does not properly check for an integer overflow, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (insufficient memory allocation) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted SNDRV_COMPRESS_SET_PARAMS ioctl call.(CVE-2014-9904)
- 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)
