openSUSE Security Update : kernel (openSUSE-SU-2014:0840-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 76228

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

The Linux kernel was updated to fix security issues and bugs.

Security issues fixed: CVE-2014-3153: The futex_requeue function in kernel/futex.c in the Linux kernel did not ensure that calls have two different futex addresses, which allowed local users to gain privileges via a crafted FUTEX_REQUEUE command that facilitates unsafe waiter modification.

CVE-2014-3144: The (1) BPF_S_ANC_NLATTR and (2) BPF_S_ANC_NLATTR_NEST extension implementations in the sk_run_filter function in net/core/filter.c in the Linux kernel did not check whether a certain length value is sufficiently large, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (integer underflow and system crash) via crafted BPF instructions. NOTE: the affected code was moved to the
__skb_get_nlattr and __skb_get_nlattr_nest functions before the vulnerability was announced.

CVE-2014-3145: The BPF_S_ANC_NLATTR_NEST extension implementation in the sk_run_filter function in net/core/filter.c in the Linux kernel used the reverse order in a certain subtraction, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (over-read and system crash) via crafted BPF instructions. NOTE: the affected code was moved to the
__skb_get_nlattr_nest function before the vulnerability was announced.

CVE-2014-0077: drivers/vhost/net.c in the Linux kernel, when mergeable buffers are disabled, did not properly validate packet lengths, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and host OS crash) or possibly gain privileges on the host OS via crafted packets, related to the handle_rx and get_rx_bufs functions.

CVE-2014-0055: The get_rx_bufs function in drivers/vhost/net.c in the vhost-net subsystem in the Linux kernel package did not properly handle vhost_get_vq_desc errors, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) via unspecified vectors.

CVE-2014-2678: The rds_iw_laddr_check function in net/rds/iw.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a bind system call for an RDS socket on a system that lacks RDS transports.

CVE-2013-7339: The rds_ib_laddr_check function in net/rds/ib.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a bind system call for an RDS socket on a system that lacks RDS transports.

CVE-2014-2851: Integer overflow in the ping_init_sock function in net/ipv4/ping.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (use-after-free and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via a crafted application that leverages an improperly managed reference counter.

- ext4: Fix buffer double free in ext4_alloc_branch() (bnc#880599 bnc#876981).

- mm: revert 'page-writeback.c: subtract min_free_kbytes from dirtyable memory' (bnc#879792).

- usb: musb: tusb6010: Use musb->tusb_revision instead of tusb_get_revision call (bnc#872715).

- usb: musb: tusb6010: Add tusb_revision to struct musb to store the revision (bnc#872715).

- ALSA: hda - Fix onboard audio on Intel H97/Z97 chipsets (bnc#880613).

- floppy: do not corrupt bio.bi_flags when reading block 0 (bnc#879258).
