EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : kernel (EulerOS-SA-2019-1586)

high Nessus Plugin ID 125513
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the kernel packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's NFS41+ subsystem. NFS41+ shares mounted in different network namespaces at the same time can make bc_svc_process() use wrong back-channel IDs and cause a use-after-free vulnerability. Thus a malicious container user can cause a host kernel memory corruption and a system panic. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out.(CVE-2018-16884)

- An elevation of privilege vulnerability in the kernel scsi driver. Product: Android. Versions: Android kernel. Android ID A-65023233.(CVE-2017-13168)

- A flaw in the load_elf_binary() function in the Linux kernel allows a local attacker to leak the base address of .text and stack sections for setuid binaries and bypass ASLR because install_exec_creds() is called too late in this function.(CVE-2019-11190)

- The SCTP socket buffer used by a userspace application is not accounted by the cgroups subsystem. An attacker can use this flaw to cause a denial of service attack.(CVE-2019-3874)

- A flaw was found in the Linux kernel ext4 filesystem.
An out-of-bound access is possible in the ext4_ext_drop_refs() function when operating on a crafted ext4 filesystem image.(CVE-2018-10877)

- Non-optimized code for key handling of shared futexes was found in the Linux kernel in the form of unbounded contention time due to the page lock for real-time users. Before the fix, the page lock was an unnecessarily heavy lock for the futex path that protected too much. After the fix, the page lock is only required in a specific corner case.(CVE-2018-9422)

- A flaw was found in the Linux kernel in the hid_debug_events_read() function in the drivers/hid/hid-debug.c file. A lack of the certain checks may allow a privileged user ('root') to achieve an out-of-bounds write and thus receiving user space buffer corruption.(CVE-2018-9516i1/4%0

- A vulnerability was found in polkit. When authentication is performed by a non-root user to perform an administrative task, the authentication is temporarily cached in such a way that a local attacker could impersonate the authorized process, thus gaining access to elevated privileges.(CVE-2019-6133)

- A flaw was found in the implementation of the 'fill buffer', a mechanism used by modern CPUs when a cache-miss is made on L1 CPU cache. If an attacker can generate a load operation that would create a page fault, the execution will continue speculatively with incorrect data from the fill buffer while the data is fetched from higher level caches. This response time can be measured to infer data in the fill buffer.
(CVE-2018-12130)

- Modern Intel microprocessors implement hardware-level micro-optimizations to improve the performance of writing data back to CPU caches. The write operation is split into STA (STore Address) and STD (STore Data) sub-operations. These sub-operations allow the processor to hand-off address generation logic into these sub-operations for optimized writes. Both of these sub-operations write to a shared distributed processor structure called the 'processor store buffer'. As a result, an unprivileged attacker could use this flaw to read private data resident within the CPU's processor store buffer. (CVE-2018-12126)

- Microprocessors use a aEUR~load portaEURtm subcomponent to perform load operations from memory or IO. During a load operation, the load port receives data from the memory or IO subsystem and then provides the data to the CPU registers and operations in the CPUaEURtms pipelines. Stale load operations results are stored in the 'load port' table until overwritten by newer operations. Certain load-port operations triggered by an attacker can be used to reveal data about previous stale requests leaking data back to the attacker via a timing side-channel. (CVE-2018-12127)

- Uncacheable memory on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via a side channel with local access. (CVE-2019-11091)

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.
