EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 220.127.116.11 : kernel (EulerOS-SA-2019-1533)
High Nessus Plugin ID 124986
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 :
- An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's netfilter connection tracking implementation loaded extensions. An attacker on a local network could potentially send a sequence of specially crafted packets that would initiate the loading of a large number of extensions, causing the targeted system in that network to crash.(CVE-2014-9715)
- A flaw was found in the Linux kernel which could cause a kernel panic when restoring machine specific registers on the PowerPC platform. Incorrect transactional memory state registers could inadvertently change the call path on return from userspace and cause the kernel to enter an unknown state and crash.(CVE-2015-8844)
- A timing flaw was found in the Chrome EC driver in the Linux kernel. An attacker could abuse timing to skip validation checks to copy additional data from userspace possibly increasing privilege or crashing the system.(CVE-2016-6156)
- A race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's IPC subsystem initialized certain fields in an IPC object structure that were later used for permission checking before inserting the object into a globally visible list. A local, unprivileged user could potentially use this flaw to elevate their privileges on the system.(CVE-2015-7613)
- A path length checking flaw was found in Linux kernels built with UDF file system (CONFIG_UDF_FS) support. An attacker able to mount a corrupted/malicious UDF file system image could use this flaw to leak kernel memory to user-space.(CVE-2014-9731)
- A race condition leading to a NULL pointer dereference was found in the Linux kernel's Link Layer Control implementation. A local attacker with access to ping sockets could use this flaw to crash the system.(CVE-2017-2671)
- The f2fs implementation in the Linux kernel, before 4.14, mishandles reference counts associated with f2fs_wait_discard_bios calls. This allows local users to cause a denial of service (BUG), as demonstrated by fstrim.(CVE-2017-18200)
- The LIST_POISON feature in include/linux/poison.h in the Linux kernel before 4.3, as used in Android 6.0.1 before 2016-03-01, does not properly consider the relationship to the mmap_min_addr value, which makes it easier for attackers to bypass a poison-pointer protection mechanism by triggering the use of an uninitialized list entry, aka Android internal bug 26186802, a different vulnerability than CVE-2015-3636.(CVE-2016-0821)
- The xsave/xrstor implementation in arch/x86/include/asm/xsave.h in the Linux kernel before 3.19.2 creates certain .altinstr_replacement pointers and consequently does not provide any protection against instruction faulting, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (panic) by triggering a fault, as demonstrated by an unaligned memory operand or a non-canonical address memory operand.(CVE-2015-2672)
- The n_tty_write function in drivers/tty/n_tty.c in the Linux kernel through 3.14.3 does not properly manage tty driver access in the 'LECHO & !OPOST' case, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) or gain privileges by triggering a race condition involving read and write operations with long strings.(CVE-2014-0196)
- In the Linux kernel through 4.14.13, drivers/block/loop.c mishandles lo_release serialization, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service (__lock_acquire use-after-free) or possibly have unspecified other impact.(CVE-2018-5344)
- The lbs_debugfs_write function in drivers/net/wireless/libertas/debugfs.c in the Linux kernel through 3.12.1 allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) by leveraging root privileges for a zero-length write operation.(CVE-2013-6378)
- A NULL-pointer dereference vulnerability was discovered in the Linux kernel. The kernel's Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS) protocol implementation did not verify that an underlying transport existed before creating a connection to a remote server. A local system user could exploit this flaw to crash the system by creating sockets at specific times to trigger a NULL pointer dereference.(CVE-2015-6937)
- A stack buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the Bluetooth subsystem of the Linux kernel processed pending L2CAP configuration responses from a client. On systems with the stack protection feature enabled in the kernel (CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR=y, which is enabled on all architectures other than s390x and ppc64le), an unauthenticated attacker able to initiate a connection to a system via Bluetooth could use this flaw to crash the system. Due to the nature of the stack protection feature, code execution cannot be fully ruled out, although we believe it is unlikely. On systems without the stack protection feature (ppc64le the Bluetooth modules are not built on s390x), an unauthenticated attacker able to initiate a connection to a system via Bluetooth could use this flaw to remotely execute arbitrary code on the system with ring 0 (kernel) privileges.(CVE-2017-1000251)
- Integer signedness error in the MSM QDSP6 audio driver for the Linux kernel 3.x, as used in Qualcomm Innovation Center (QuIC) Android contributions for MSM devices and other products, allows attackers to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a crafted application that makes an ioctl call.(CVE-2016-2066)
- The bcm_char_ioctl function in drivers/staging/bcm/Bcmchar.c in the Linux kernel before 3.12 does not initialize a certain data structure, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via an IOCTL_BCM_GET_DEVICE_DRIVER_INFO ioctl call.(CVE-2013-4515)
- A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) implementation handled malformed Address Configuration Change Chunks (ASCONF). A remote attacker could use either of these flaws to crash the system.(CVE-2014-3673)
- It was found that paravirt_patch_call/jump() functions in the arch/x86/kernel/paravirt.c in the Linux kernel mishandles certain indirect calls, which makes it easier for attackers to conduct Spectre-v2 attacks against paravirtualized guests.(CVE-2018-15594)
- It was found that the Linux kernel's KVM implementation did not ensure that the host CR4 control register value remained unchanged across VM entries on the same virtual CPU. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service on the system.(CVE-2014-3690)
- 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)
