High Nessus Plugin ID 80250

Synopsis

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Service Pack 3 kernel has been updated to fix various bugs and security issues.

The following security bugs have been fixed :

- The __request_module function in kernel/kmod.c in the Linux kernel before 3.4 did not set a certain killable attribute, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a crafted application. (bnc#779488). (CVE-2012-4398)

- drivers/hid/hid-zpff.c in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_HID_ZEROPLUS is enabled, allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based out-of-bounds write) via a crafted device.
(bnc#835839). (CVE-2013-2889)

- The Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_LOGITECH_FF, CONFIG_LOGIG940_FF, or CONFIG_LOGIWHEELS_FF is enabled, allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based out-of-bounds write) via a crafted device, related to (1) drivers/hid/hid-lgff.c, (2) drivers/hid/hid-lg3ff.c, and (3) drivers/hid/hid-lg4ff.c. (bnc#835839). (CVE-2013-2893)

- Multiple array index errors in drivers/hid/hid-multitouch.c in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_HID_MULTITOUCH is enabled, allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption, or NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted device.
(bnc#835839). (CVE-2013-2897)

- drivers/hid/hid-picolcd_core.c in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_HID_PICOLCD is enabled, allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted device.
(bnc#835839). (CVE-2013-2899)

- The Linux kernel before 3.12.4 updates certain length values before ensuring that associated data structures have been initialized, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a (1) recvfrom, (2) recvmmsg, or (3) recvmsg system call, related to net/ipv4/ping.c, net/ipv4/raw.c, net/ipv4/udp.c, net/ipv6/raw.c, and net/ipv6/udp.c.
(bnc#853040, bnc#857643). (CVE-2013-7263)

- Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in the magicmouse_raw_event function in drivers/hid/hid-magicmouse.c in the Magic Mouse HID driver in the Linux kernel through 3.16.3 allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted device that provides a large amount of (1) EHCI or (2) XHCI data associated with an event.
(bnc#896382). (CVE-2014-3181)

- The report_fixup functions in the HID subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.16.2 allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write) via a crafted device that provides a small report descriptor, related to (1) drivers/hid/hid-cherry.c, (2) drivers/hid/hid-kye.c, (3) drivers/hid/hid-lg.c, (4) drivers/hid/hid-monterey.c, (5) drivers/hid/hid-petalynx.c, and (6) drivers/hid/hid-sunplus.c. (bnc#896390). (CVE-2014-3184)

- Multiple buffer overflows in the command_port_read_callback function in drivers/usb/serial/whiteheat.c in the Whiteheat USB Serial Driver in the Linux kernel before 3.16.2 allowed physically proximate attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) via a crafted device that provides a large amount of (1) EHCI or (2) XHCI data associated with a bulk response. (bnc#896391). (CVE-2014-3185)

- Buffer overflow in the picolcd_raw_event function in devices/hid/hid-picolcd_core.c in the PicoLCD HID device driver in the Linux kernel through 3.16.3, as used in Android on Nexus 7 devices, allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted device that sends a large report. (bnc#896392). (CVE-2014-3186)

- The kvm_iommu_map_pages function in virt/kvm/iommu.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 miscalculated the number of pages during the handling of a mapping failure, which allowed guest OS users to (1) cause a denial of service (host OS memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact by triggering a large gfn value or (2) cause a denial of service (host OS memory consumption) by triggering a small gfn value that leads to permanently pinned pages. (bnc#892782). (CVE-2014-3601)

- The WRMSR processing functionality in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 did not properly handle the writing of a non-canonical address to a model-specific register, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) by leveraging guest OS privileges, related to the wrmsr_interception function in arch/x86/kvm/svm.c and the handle_wrmsr function in arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c. (bnc#899192).
(CVE-2014-3610)

- arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 did not have an exit handler for the INVVPID instruction, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) via a crafted application. (bnc#899192). (CVE-2014-3646)

- arch/x86/kvm/emulate.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 did not properly perform RIP changes, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) via a crafted application.
(bnc#899192). (CVE-2014-3647)

- The SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a malformed ASCONF chunk, related to net/sctp/sm_make_chunk.c and net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c. (bnc#902346, bnc#902349).
(CVE-2014-3673)

- arch/x86/kernel/entry_32.S in the Linux kernel through 3.15.1 on 32-bit x86 platforms, when syscall auditing is enabled and the sep CPU feature flag is set, allowed local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS and system crash) via an invalid syscall number, as demonstrated by number 1000. (bnc#883724).
(CVE-2014-4508)

- * DISPUTED * Multiple integer overflows in the lzo1x_decompress_safe function in lib/lzo/lzo1x_decompress_safe.c in the LZO decompressor in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 allowed context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a crafted Literal Run. NOTE: the author of the LZO algorithms says: The Linux kernel is not affected; media hype. (bnc#883948). (CVE-2014-4608)

- kernel/trace/trace_syscalls.c in the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 did not properly handle private syscall numbers during use of the ftrace subsystem, which allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference) via a crafted application. (bnc#904013). (CVE-2014-7826)

- An SCTP server doing ASCONF would panic on malformed INIT ping-of-death. (bnc#905100). (CVE-2014-7841)

- The ieee80211_fragment function in net/mac80211/tx.c in the Linux kernel before 3.13.5 did not properly maintain a certain tail pointer, which allowed remote attackers to obtain sensitive cleartext information by reading packets. (bnc#904700). (CVE-2014-8709)

- A local user with write access could have used this flaw to crash the kernel or elevate privileges (bnc#905522).
