EulerOS Virtualization 3.0.1.0 : kernel (EulerOS-SA-2019-1507)

High Nessus Plugin ID 124830

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 has an undefined behavior when an argument of INT_MIN is passed to the kernel/signal.c:kill_something_info() function. A local attacker may be able to exploit this to cause a denial of service.(CVE-2018-10124)

- The xfs_dinode_verify function in fs/xfs/libxfs/xfs_inode_buf.c in the Linux kernel can cause a NULL pointer dereference in xfs_ilock_attr_map_shared function. An attacker could trick a legitimate user or a privileged attacker could exploit this by mounting a crafted xfs filesystem image to cause a kernel panic and thus a denial of service.(CVE-2018-10322)

- A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's client-side implementation of the cifs protocol. This flaw allows an attacker controlling the server to kernel panic a client which has the CIFS server mounted.(CVE-2018-1066)

- The do_get_mempolicy() function in mm/mempolicy.c in the Linux kernel allows local users to hit a use-after-free bug via crafted system calls and thus cause a denial of service (DoS) or possibly have unspecified other impact. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out.(CVE-2018-10675)

- A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's ext4 filesystem.
A local user can cause an out-of-bounds write and a denial of service or unspecified other impact is possible by mounting and operating a crafted ext4 filesystem image.(CVE-2018-10878)

- 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 access in ext4_get_group_info function, a denial of service, and a system crash by mounting and operating on a crafted ext4 filesystem image.(CVE-2018-10881)

- 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)

- 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 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)

- A flaw was found in the Linux kernel, before 4.16.6 where the cdrom_ioctl_media_changed function in drivers/cdrom/cdrom.c allows local attackers to use a incorrect bounds check in the CDROM driver CDROM_MEDIA_CHANGED ioctl to read out kernel memory.(CVE-2018-10940)

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.
