EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 3.0.1.0 : kernel (EulerOS-SA-2019-1534)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 124987

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According 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 atalk_recvmsg function in net/appletalk/ddp.c in the Linux kernel before 3.12.4 updates a certain length value without ensuring that an associated data structure has been initialized, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via a (1) recvfrom, (2) recvmmsg, or (3) recvmsg system call.(CVE-2013-7267)

- fs/f2fs/segment.c in the Linux kernel allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and panic) by using a noflush_merge option that triggers a NULL value for a flush_cmd_control data structure.(CVE-2017-18241)

- fs/pnode.c in the Linux kernel before 4.5.4 does not properly traverse a mount propagation tree in a certain case involving a slave mount, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted series of mount system calls.(CVE-2016-4581)

- drivers/vhost/net.c in the Linux kernel before 3.13.10, when mergeable buffers are disabled, does not properly validate packet lengths, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and host OS crash) or possibly gain privileges on the host OS via crafted packets, related to the handle_rx and get_rx_bufs functions.(CVE-2014-0077)

- It was found that the fix for CVE-2016-9576 was incomplete: the Linux kernel's sg implementation did not properly restrict write operations in situations where the KERNEL_DS option is set. A local attacker to read or write to arbitrary kernel memory locations or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) by leveraging write access to a /dev/sg device.(CVE-2016-10088)

- ** DISPUTED ** An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel through 4.17.2. Since the page allocator does not yield CPU resources to the owner of the oom_lock mutex, a local unprivileged user can trivially lock up the system forever by wasting CPU resources from the page allocator (e.g., via concurrent page fault events) when the global OOM killer is invoked. NOTE: the software maintainer has not accepted certain proposed patches, in part because of a viewpoint that 'the underlying problem is non-trivial to handle.'(CVE-2016-10723)

- A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's ASN.1 DER decoder processed certain certificate files with tags of indefinite length. A local, unprivileged user could use a specially crafted X.509 certificate DER file to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system.(CVE-2016-0758)

- A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) implementation handled the association's output queue. A remote attacker could send specially crafted packets that would cause the system to use an excessive amount of memory, leading to a denial of service.(CVE-2014-3688)

- A use-after-free flaw was found in the way the ping_init_sock() function of the Linux kernel handled the group_info reference counter. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system.(CVE-2014-2851)

- The compat_get_timex function in kernel/compat.c in the Linux kernel before 4.16.9 allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via adjtimex.(CVE-2018-11508)

- The cdc_parse_cdc_header() function in 'drivers/usb/core/message.c' in the Linux kernel, before 4.13.6, 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. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out, although we believe it is unlikely.(CVE-2017-16534)

- A flaw was found in the crypto subsystem of the Linux kernel before version kernel-4.15-rc4. The 'null skcipher' was being dropped when each af_alg_ctx was freed instead of when the aead_tfm was freed. This can cause the null skcipher to be freed while it is still in use leading to a local user being able to crash the system or possibly escalate privileges.(CVE-2018-14619)

- The crypto_skcipher_init_tfm function in crypto/skcipher.c in the Linux kernel through 4.11.2 relies on a setkey function that lacks a key-size check, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) via a crafted application.(CVE-2017-9211)

- kernel/events/core.c in the performance subsystem in the Linux kernel before 4.0 mismanages locks during certain migrations, which allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted application, aka Android internal bug 30955111.(CVE-2016-6786)

- The KEYS subsystem in the Linux kernel omitted an access-control check when writing a key to the current task's default keyring, allowing a local user to bypass security checks to the keyring. This compromises the validity of the keyring for those who rely on it.(CVE-2017-17807)

- A use-after-free flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's SCTP implementation handled authentication key reference counting during INIT collisions. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system.(CVE-2015-1421)

- The waitid implementation in kernel/exit.c in the Linux kernel through 4.13.4 accesses rusage data structures in unintended cases. This can allow local users to obtain sensitive information and bypass the KASLR protection mechanism via a crafted system call.(CVE-2017-14954)

- It was found that the Linux kernel's keyring implementation would leak memory when adding a key to a keyring via the add_key() function. A local attacker could use this flaw to exhaust all available memory on the system.(CVE-2015-1333)

- The msm_ipc_router_close function in net/ipc_router/ipc_router_socket.c in the ipc_router component for the Linux kernel 3.x, as used in Qualcomm Innovation Center (QuIC) Android contributions for MSM devices and other products, allow attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) or possibly have unspecified other impact by triggering failure of an accept system call for an AF_MSM_IPC socket.(CVE-2016-5870)

- A reachable assertion failure flaw was found in the Linux kernel built with KVM virtualisation(CONFIG_KVM) support with Virtual Function I/O feature (CONFIG_VFIO) enabled. This failure could occur if a malicious guest device sent a virtual interrupt (guest IRQ) with a larger (>1024) index value.(CVE-2017-1000252)

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.
