EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 126.96.36.199 : kernel (EulerOS-SA-2019-1530)
High Nessus Plugin ID 124983
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 acpi_smbus_hc_add function in drivers/acpi/sbshc.c in the Linux kernel through 4.14.15 allows local users to obtain sensitive address information by reading dmesg data from an SBS HC printk call.(CVE-2018-5750)
- An issue was discovered in the btrfs filesystem code in the Linux kernel. A use-after-free is possible in try_merge_free_space() when mounting a crafted btrfs image due to a lack of chunk type flag checks in btrfs_check_chunk_valid() in the fs/btrfs/volumes.c function. This could lead to a denial of service or other unspecified impact.(CVE-2018-14611)
- A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel visor driver handles certain invalid USB device descriptors.
The driver assumes that the device always has at least one bulk OUT endpoint. By using a specially crafted USB device (without a bulk OUT endpoint), an unprivileged user with physical access could trigger a kernel NULL-pointer dereference and cause a system panic (denial of service).(CVE-2015-7566)
- It was found that the RFC 5961 challenge ACK rate limiting as implemented in the Linux kernel's networking subsystem allowed an off-path attacker to leak certain information about a given connection by creating congestion on the global challenge ACK rate limit counter and then measuring the changes by probing packets. An off-path attacker could use this flaw to either terminate TCP connection and/or inject payload into non-secured TCP connection between two endpoints on the network.(CVE-2016-5696)
- It was found that the Bluebooth Network Encapsulation Protocol (BNEP) implementation did not validate the type of second socket passed to the BNEPCONNADD ioctl(), which could lead to memory corruption. A local user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability can use this for denial of service (crash or data corruption) or possibly for privilege escalation. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out, although we feel it is unlikely.(CVE-2017-15868)
- A vulnerability was found in the key management subsystem of the Linux kernel. An update on an uninstantiated key could cause a kernel panic, leading to denial of service (DoS).(CVE-2017-15299)
- The rfcomm_sock_bind function in net/bluetooth/rfcomm/sock.c in the Linux kernel before 4.2 allows local users to obtain sensitive information or cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) via vectors involving a bind system call on a Bluetooth RFCOMM socket.(CVE-2015-8956)
- arch/mips/include/asm/thread_info.h in the Linux kernel before 3.14.8 on the MIPS platform does not configure
_TIF_SECCOMP checks on the fast system-call path, which allows local users to bypass intended PR_SET_SECCOMP restrictions by executing a crafted application without invoking a trace or audit subsystem.(CVE-2014-4157)
- A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's ext4 filesystem code. A stack-out-of-bounds write in ext4_update_inline_data() is possible when mounting and writing to a crafted ext4 image. An attacker could use this to cause a system crash and a denial of service.(CVE-2018-10880)
- The aac_send_raw_srb function in drivers/scsi/aacraid/commctrl.c in the Linux kernel through 3.12.1 does not properly validate a certain size value, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference) or possibly have unspecified other impact via an FSACTL_SEND_RAW_SRB ioctl call that triggers a crafted SRB command.(CVE-2013-6380)
- Linux kernel built with the KVM visualization support (CONFIG_KVM), with nested visualization(nVMX) feature enabled(nested=1), is vulnerable to an uncaught exception issue. It could occur if an L2 guest was to throw an exception which is not handled by an L1 guest.(CVE-2016-9588)
- A flaw was found in the alarm_timer_nsleep() function in kernel/time/alarmtimer.c in the Linux kernel. The ktime_add_safe() function is not used and an integer overflow can happen causing an alarm not to fire if using a large relative timeout.(CVE-2018-13053)
- net/llc/sysctl_net_llc.c in the Linux kernel before 3.19 uses an incorrect data type in a sysctl table, which allows local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory or possibly have unspecified other impact by accessing a sysctl entry.(CVE-2015-2041)
- Incorrect error handling in the set_mempolicy() and mbind() compat syscalls in 'mm/mempolicy.c' in the Linux kernel allows local users to obtain sensitive information from uninitialized stack data by triggering failure of a certain bitmap operation.(CVE-2017-7616)
- The snd_msnd_interrupt function in sound/isa/msnd/msnd_pinnacle.c in the Linux kernel through 4.11.7 allows local users to cause a denial of service (over-boundary access) or possibly have unspecified other impact by changing the value of a message queue head pointer between two kernel reads of that value, aka a 'double fetch' vulnerability.(CVE-2017-9984)
- An integer overflow was discovered in the qla2x00_sysfs_write_optrom_ctl function in drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/qla_attr.c in the Linux kernel through 4.12.10. This flaw allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) by leveraging root access.(CVE-2017-14051)
- A use-after-free flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) implementation handled user controls. A local, privileged user could use this flaw to crash the system.(CVE-2014-4654)
- An information leak flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Virtual Dynamic Shared Object (vDSO) implementation performed address randomization. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to leak kernel memory addresses to user-space.(CVE-2014-9585)
- The usbhid_parse function in drivers/hid/usbhid/hid-core.c in the Linux kernel, before 4.13.8, allows local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted USB device.(CVE-2017-16533)
- A divide-by-zero vulnerability was found in the
__tcp_select_window function in the Linux kernel. This can result in a kernel panic causing a local denial of service.(CVE-2017-14106)
