Debian DLA-2114-1 : linux-4.9 security update

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 134240

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service or information leaks.

CVE-2018-13093, CVE-2018-13094

Wen Xu from SSLab at Gatech reported several NULL pointer dereference flaws that may be triggered when mounting and operating a crafted XFS volume. An attacker able to mount arbitrary XFS volumes could use this to cause a denial of service (crash).

CVE-2018-20976

It was discovered that the XFS file-system implementation did not correctly handle some mount failure conditions, which could lead to a use-after-free. The security impact of this is unclear.

CVE-2018-21008

It was discovered that the rsi wifi driver did not correctly handle some failure conditions, which could lead to a use-after- free. The security impact of this is unclear.

CVE-2019-0136

It was discovered that the wifi soft-MAC implementation (mac80211) did not properly authenticate Tunneled Direct Link Setup (TDLS) messages.
A nearby attacker could use this for denial of service (loss of wifi connectivity).

CVE-2019-2215

The syzkaller tool discovered a use-after-free vulnerability in the Android binder driver. A local user on a system with this driver enabled could use this to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly for privilege escalation. However, this driver is not enabled on Debian packaged kernels.

CVE-2019-10220

Various developers and researchers found that if a crafted file- system or malicious file server presented a directory with filenames including a '/' character, this could confuse and possibly defeat security checks in applications that read the directory.

The kernel will now return an error when reading such a directory, rather than passing the invalid filenames on to user-space.

CVE-2019-14615

It was discovered that Intel 9th and 10th generation GPUs did not clear user-visible state during a context switch, which resulted in information leaks between GPU tasks. This has been mitigated in the i915 driver.

The affected chips (gen9 and gen10) are listed at <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_graphics_proces sing_units#Gen9>.

CVE-2019-14814, CVE-2019-14815, CVE-2019-14816

Multiple bugs were discovered in the mwifiex wifi driver, which could lead to heap buffer overflows. A local user permitted to configure a device handled by this driver could probably use this for privilege escalation.

CVE-2019-14895, CVE-2019-14901

ADLab of Venustech discovered potential heap buffer overflows in the mwifiex wifi driver. On systems using this driver, a malicious Wireless Access Point or adhoc/P2P peer could use these to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly for remote code execution.

CVE-2019-14896, CVE-2019-14897

ADLab of Venustech discovered potential heap and stack buffer overflows in the libertas wifi driver. On systems using this driver, a malicious Wireless Access Point or adhoc/P2P peer could use these to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly for remote code execution.

CVE-2019-15098

Hui Peng and Mathias Payer reported that the ath6kl wifi driver did not properly validate USB descriptors, which could lead to a NULL pointer derefernce. An attacker able to add USB devices could use this to cause a denial of service (BUG/oops).

CVE-2019-15217

The syzkaller tool discovered that the zr364xx mdia driver did not correctly handle devices without a product name string, which could lead to a NULL pointer dereference. An attacker able to add USB devices could use this to cause a denial of service (BUG/oops).

CVE-2019-15291

The syzkaller tool discovered that the b2c2-flexcop-usb media driver did not properly validate USB descriptors, which could lead to a NULL pointer dereference. An attacker able to add USB devices could use this to cause a denial of service (BUG/oops).

CVE-2019-15505

The syzkaller tool discovered that the technisat-usb2 media driver did not properly validate incoming IR packets, which could lead to a heap buffer over-read. An attacker able to add USB devices could use this to cause a denial of service (BUG/oops) or to read sensitive information from kernel memory.

CVE-2019-15917

The syzkaller tool found a race condition in code supporting UART-attached Bluetooth adapters, which could lead to a use- after-free. A local user with access to a pty device or other suitable tty device could use this to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly for privilege escalation.

CVE-2019-16746

It was discovered that the wifi stack did not validate the content of beacon heads provided by user-space for use on a wifi interface in Access Point mode, which could lead to a heap buffer overflow. A local user permitted to configure a wifi interface could use this to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly for privilege escalation.

CVE-2019-17052, CVE-2019-17053, CVE-2019-17054, CVE-2019-17055, CVE-2019-17056

Ori Nimron reported that various network protocol implementations

- AX.25, IEEE 802.15.4, Appletalk, ISDN, and NFC - allowed all users to create raw sockets. A local user could use this to send arbitrary packets on networks using those protocols.

CVE-2019-17075

It was found that the cxgb4 Infiniband driver requested DMA (Direct Memory Access) to a stack-allocated buffer, which is not supported and on some systems can result in memory corruption of the stack. A local user might be able to use this for denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly for privilege escalation.

CVE-2019-17133

Nicholas Waisman reported that the wifi stack did not valdiate received SSID information before copying it, which could lead to a buffer overflow if it is not validated by the driver or firmware. A malicious Wireless Access Point might be able to use this to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or for remote code execution.

CVE-2019-17666

Nicholas Waisman reported that the rtlwifi wifi drivers did not properly validate received P2P information, leading to a buffer overflow. A malicious P2P peer could use this to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or for remote code execution.

CVE-2019-18282

Jonathan Berger, Amit Klein, and Benny Pinkas discovered that the generation of UDP/IPv6 flow labels used a weak hash function, 'jhash'.
This could enable tracking individual computers as they communicate with different remote servers and from different networks. The 'siphash' function is now used instead.

CVE-2019-18683

Multiple race conditions were discovered in the vivid media driver, used for testing Video4Linux2 (V4L2) applications, These race conditions could result in a use-after-free. On a system where this driver is loaded, a user with permission to access media devices could use this to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly for privilege escalation.

CVE-2019-18809
