EulerOS Virtualization 2.9.1 : kernel (EulerOS-SA-2021-1967)

high Nessus Plugin ID 150271
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 Virtualization host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

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

- There is a flaw reported in drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nouveau_sgdma.c in nouveau_sgdma_create_ttm in Nouveau DRM subsystem. The issue results from the lack of validating the existence of an object prior to performing operations on the object. An attacker with a local account with a root privilege, can leverage this vulnerability to escalate privileges and execute code in the context of the kernel.(CVE-2021-20292)

- A flaw memory leak in the Linux kernel webcam device functionality was found in the way user calls ioctl that triggers video_usercopy function. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability.(CVE-2021-30002)

- A flaw was found in the Linux kernel. The usbip driver allows attackers to cause a denial of service (GPF) because the stub-up sequence has race conditions during an update of the local and shared status. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability.(CVE-2021-29265)

- A flaw in the Linux kernels implementation of the RPA PCI Hotplug driver for power-pc. A user with permissions to write to the sysfs settings for this driver can trigger a buffer overflow when writing a new device name to the driver from userspace, overwriting data in the kernel's stack.(CVE-2021-28972)

- rtw_wx_set_scan in drivers/staging/rtl8188eu/os_dep/ioctl_linux.c in the Linux kernel through 5.11.6 allows writing beyond the end of the ->ssid[] array. NOTE: from the perspective of kernel.org releases, CVE IDs are not normally used for drivers/staging/* (unfinished work) however, system integrators may have situations in which a drivers/staging issue is relevant to their own customer base.(CVE-2021-28660)

- A race condition flaw was found in get_old_root in fs/btrfs/ctree.c in the Linux kernel in btrfs file-system. This flaw allows a local attacker with a special user privilege to cause a denial of service due to not locking an extent buffer before a cloning operation. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability.(CVE-2021-28964)

- A flaw was found in the Linux kernel. This flaw allows attackers to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory because of a partially uninitialized data structure. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to confidentiality.(CVE-2021-29647)

- A flaw was found in the Linux kernel. The Freescale Gianfar Ethernet driver allows attackers to cause a system crash due to a negative fragment size calculated in situations involving an RX queue overrun when jumbo packets are used and NAPI is enabled. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to data integrity and system availability.(CVE-2021-29264)

- An out-of-bounds (OOB) memory access flaw was found in x25_bind in net/x25/af_x25.c in the Linux kernel. A bounds check failure allows a local attacker with a user account on the system to gain access to out-of-bounds memory, leading to a system crash or a leak of internal kernel information. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to confidentiality, integrity, as well as system availability.(CVE-2020-35519)

- A flaw was found in the Linux kernels eBPF verification code. By default accessing the eBPF verifier is only accessible to privileged users with CAP_SYS_ADMIN. A flaw that triggers Integer underflow when restricting speculative pointer arithmetic allows unprivileged local users to leak the content of kernel memory. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to data confidentiality.(CVE-2020-27171)

- A flaw was found in the Linux kernels eBPF verification code. By default accessing the eBPF verifier is only accessible to privileged users with CAP_SYS_ADMIN. A local user with the ability to insert eBPF instructions can use the eBPF verifier to abuse a spectre like flaw where they can infer all system memory.(CVE-2020-27170)

- A flaw was found in the Linux kernels eBPF implementation. By default, accessing the eBPF verifier is only accessible to privileged users with CAP_SYS_ADMIN. A local user with the ability to insert eBPF instructions can abuse a flaw in eBPF to corrupt memory. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to confidentiality, integrity, as well as system availability.(CVE-2021-29154)

- The fix for XSA-365 includes initialization of pointers such that subsequent cleanup code wouldn't use uninitialized or stale values. This initialization went too far and may under certain conditions also overwrite pointers which are in need of cleaning up. The lack of cleanup would result in leaking persistent grants. The leak in turn would prevent fully cleaning up after a respective guest has died, leaving around zombie domains. All Linux versions having the fix for XSA-365 applied are vulnerable. XSA-365 was classified to affect versions back to at least 3.11.(CVE-2021-28688)

- A denial-of-service (DoS) flaw was identified in the Linux kernel due to an incorrect memory barrier in xt_replace_table in net/netfilter/x_tables.c in the netfilter subsystem.(CVE-2021-29650)

- A flaw was found in the Nosy driver in the Linux kernel. This issue allows a device to be inserted twice into a doubly-linked list, leading to a use-after-free when one of these devices is removed. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to confidentiality, integrity, as well as system availability.(CVE-2021-3483)

- A use-after-free flaw was found in the Linux kernel's SCTP socket functionality that triggers a race condition. This flaw allows a local user to escalate their privileges on the system. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to confidentiality, integrity, as well as system availability.(CVE-2021-23133)

- A denial of service flaw was found in fuse_do_getattr in fs/fuse/dir.c in the kernel side of the FUSE filesystem in the Linux kernel. A local user could use this flaw to crash the system.(CVE-2020-36322)
