EulerOS 2.0 SP3 : kernel (EulerOS-SA-2019-2068)
High Nessus Plugin ID 129261
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 :
- An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel before 4.18.7. In block/blk-core.c, there is an
__blk_drain_queue() use-after-free because a certain error case is mishandled.(CVE-2018-20856)
- In the Linux kernel before 5.1.7, a device can be tracked by an attacker using the IP ID values the kernel produces for connection-less protocols (e.g., UDP and ICMP). When such traffic is sent to multiple destination IP addresses, it is possible to obtain hash collisions (of indices to the counter array) and thereby obtain the hashing key (via enumeration). An attack may be conducted by hosting a crafted web page that uses WebRTC or gQUIC to force UDP traffic to attacker-controlled IP addresses.(CVE-2019-10638)
- The Linux kernel 4.x (starting from 4.1) and 5.x before 5.0.8 allows Information Exposure (partial kernel address disclosure), leading to a KASLR bypass.
Specifically, it is possible to extract the KASLR kernel image offset using the IP ID values the kernel produces for connection-less protocols (e.g., UDP and ICMP). When such traffic is sent to multiple destination IP addresses, it is possible to obtain hash collisions (of indices to the counter array) and thereby obtain the hashing key (via enumeration). This key contains enough bits from a kernel address (of a static variable) so when the key is extracted (via enumeration), the offset of the kernel image is exposed. This attack can be carried out remotely, by the attacker forcing the target device to send UDP or ICMP (or certain other) traffic to attacker-controlled IP addresses. Forcing a server to send UDP traffic is trivial if the server is a DNS server. ICMP traffic is trivial if the server answers ICMP Echo requests (ping). For client targets, if the target visits the attacker's web page, then WebRTC or gQUIC can be used to force UDP traffic to attacker-controlled IP addresses.(CVE-2019-10639)
- The Linux kernel was found vulnerable to an integer overflow in the drivers/video/fbdev/uvesafb.c:uvesafb_setcmap() function. The vulnerability could result in local attackers being able to crash the kernel or potentially elevate privileges.(CVE-2018-13406)
- 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)
- 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)
- The Linux kernel is vulnerable to an out-of-bounds read in ext4/balloc.c:ext4_valid_block_bitmap() function. An attacker could trick a legitimate user or a privileged attacker could exploit this by mounting a crafted ext4 image to cause a crash.(CVE-2018-1093)
