openSUSE Security Update : the Linux Kernel (openSUSE-2019-1570) (SACK Panic) (SACK Slowness)

high Nessus Plugin ID 126033



The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


Example: The openSUSE Leap 42.3 kernel was updated to 4.4.180 to receive various security and bugfixes.

The following security bugs were fixed :

- CVE-2019-11477: A sequence of SACKs may have been crafted by a remote attacker such that one can trigger an integer overflow, leading to a kernel panic.

- CVE-2019-11478: It was possible to send a crafted sequence of SACKs which would fragment the TCP retransmission queue. A remote attacker may have been able to further exploit the fragmented queue to cause an expensive linked-list walk for subsequent SACKs received for that same TCP connection. (bsc#1137586)

- CVE-2019-11479: It was possible to send a crafted sequence of SACKs which would fragment the RACK send map. A remote attacker may be able to further exploit the fragmented send map to cause an expensive linked-list walk for subsequent SACKs received for that same TCP connection. This would have resulted in excess resource consumption due to low mss values.

- CVE-2019-12819: The function __mdiobus_register() in drivers/net/phy/mdio_bus.c calls put_device(), which will trigger a fixed_mdio_bus_init use-after-free. This will cause a denial of service (bnc#1138291).

- CVE-2019-12818: The nfc_llcp_build_tlv function in net/nfc/llcp_commands.c may return NULL. If the caller did not check for this, it will trigger a NULL pointer dereference. This will cause denial of service. This affects nfc_llcp_build_gb in net/nfc/llcp_core.c (bnc#1138293).

- CVE-2019-12456: An issue was discovered in the MPT3COMMAND case in _ctl_ioctl_main in drivers/scsi/mpt3sas/mpt3sas_ctl.c that allowed local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact by changing the value of ioc_number between two kernel reads of that value, aka a 'double fetch' vulnerability (bnc#1136922).

- CVE-2019-12380: phys_efi_set_virtual_address_map in arch/x86/platform/efi/efi.c and efi_call_phys_prolog in arch/x86/platform/efi/efi_64.c mishandle memory allocation failures (bnc#1136598).

- CVE-2019-11487: The Linux kernel allowed page->_refcount reference count overflow, with resultant use-after-free issues, if about 140 GiB of RAM exists. This is related to fs/fuse/dev.c, fs/pipe.c, fs/splice.c, include/linux/mm.h, include/linux/pipe_fs_i.h, kernel/trace/trace.c, mm/gup.c, and mm/hugetlb.c. It can occur with FUSE requests (bnc#1133190).

- CVE-2019-3846: A flaw that allowed an attacker to corrupt memory and possibly escalate privileges was found in the mwifiex kernel module while connecting to a malicious wireless network (bnc#1136424).

- CVE-2019-12382: An issue was discovered in drm_load_edid_firmware in drivers/gpu/drm/drm_edid_load.c. There was an unchecked kstrdup of fwstr, which might allow an attacker to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) (bnc#1136586).

- CVE-2019-5489: The mincore() implementation in mm/mincore.c allowed local attackers to observe page cache access patterns of other processes on the same system, potentially allowing sniffing of secret information. (Fixing this affects the output of the fincore program.) Limited remote exploitation may be possible, as demonstrated by latency differences in accessing public files from an Apache HTTP Server (bnc#1120843).

- CVE-2019-11833: fs/ext4/extents.c did not zero out the unused memory region in the extent tree block, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information by reading uninitialized data in the filesystem (bnc#1135281).

- CVE-2018-7191: In the tun subsystem dev_get_valid_name is not called before register_netdevice. This allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and panic) via an ioctl(TUNSETIFF) call with a dev name containing a / character. This is similar to CVE-2013-4343 (bnc#1135603).

- CVE-2019-11190, CVE-2019-11191: The Linux kernel allowed local users to bypass ASLR on setuid programs (such as /bin/su) because install_exec_creds() is called too late in load_elf_binary() in fs/binfmt_elf.c, and thus the ptrace_may_access() check has a race condition when reading /proc/pid/stat (bnc#1131543 bnc#1132374 bnc#1132472).
