EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : kernel (EulerOS-SA-2019-1793)
High Nessus Plugin ID 127564
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.
DescriptionAccording to the versions of the kernel packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- The Linux kernel before 5.1-rc5 allows 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.(CVE-2019-11487)
- A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's implementation of ext4 extent management. The kernel doesn't correctly initialize memory regions in the extent tree block which may be exported to a local user to obtain sensitive information by reading empty/uninitialized data from the filesystem.(CVE-2019-11833)
- A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's implementation of the Bluetooth Human Interface Device Protocol (HIDP). A local attacker with access permissions to the Bluetooth device can issue an IOCTL which will trigger the do_hidp_sock_ioctl function in net/bluetooth/hidp/sock.c.c. This function can leak potentially sensitive information from the kernel stack memory via a HIDPCONNADD command because a name field may not be correctly NULL terminated.(CVE-2019-11884)
- An information leakage issue was found in the way Linux kernel's KVM hypervisor handled page fault exceptions while emulating instructions like VMXON, VMCLEAR, VMPTRLD, and VMWRITE with memory address as an operand.
It occurs if the operand is a mmio address, as the returned exception object holds uninitialized stack memory contents. A guest user/process could use this flaw to leak host's stack memory contents to a guest.(CVE-2019-7222)
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.
