Summary

The (1) real_lookup and (2) __lookup_hash functions in fs/namei.c in the vfs implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.25.15 do not prevent creation of a child dentry for a deleted (aka S_DEAD) directory, which allows local users to cause a denial of service ("overflow" of the UBIFS orphan area) via a series of attempted file creations within deleted directories.

Common Attack Pattern Enumeration and Classification (CAPEC)

  • Buffer Overflow via Environment Variables
    This attack pattern involves causing a buffer overflow through manipulation of environment variables. Once the attacker finds that they can modify an environment variable, they may try to overflow associated buffers. This attack leverages implicit trust often placed in environment variables.
  • Overflow Buffers
    Buffer Overflow attacks target improper or missing bounds checking on buffer operations, typically triggered by input injected by an attacker. As a consequence, an attacker is able to write past the boundaries of allocated buffer regions in memory, causing a program crash or potentially redirection of execution as per the attackers' choice.
  • Client-side Injection-induced Buffer Overflow
    This type of attack exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in targeted client software through injection of malicious content from a custom-built hostile service.
  • Filter Failure through Buffer Overflow
    In this attack, the idea is to cause an active filter to fail by causing an oversized transaction. An attacker may try to feed overly long input strings to the program in an attempt to overwhelm the filter (by causing a buffer overflow) and hoping that the filter does not fail securely (i.e. the user input is let into the system unfiltered).
  • MIME Conversion
    An attacker exploits a weakness in the MIME conversion routine to cause a buffer overflow and gain control over the mail server machine. The MIME system is designed to allow various different information formats to be interpreted and sent via e-mail. Attack points exist when data are converted to MIME compatible format and back.

    descriptionUpdated kernel packages that fix various security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security fixes : * a missing capability check was found in the Linux kernel do_change_type routine. This could allow a local unprivileged user to gain privileged access or cause a denial of service. (CVE-2008-2931, Important) * a flaw was found in the Linux kernel Direct-IO implementation. This could allow a local unprivileged user to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2007-6716, Important) * Tobias Klein reported a missing check in the Linux kernel Open Sound System (OSS) implementation. This deficiency could lead to a possible information leak. (CVE-2008-3272, Moderate) * a deficiency was found in the Linux kernel virtual filesystem (VFS) implementation. This could allow a local unprivileged user to attempt file creation within deleted directories, possibly causing a denial of service. (CVE-2008-3275, Moderate) * a flaw was found in the Linux kernel tmpfs implementation. This could allow a local unprivileged user to read sensitive information from the kernel. (CVE-2007-6417, Moderate) Bug fixes : * when copying a small IPoIB packet from the original skb it was received in to a new, smaller skb, all fields in the new skb were not initialized. This may have caused a kernel oops. * previously, data may have been written beyond the end of an array, causing memory corruption on certain systems, resulting in hypervisor crashes during context switching. * a kernel crash may have occurred on heavily-used Samba servers after 24 to 48 hours of use. * under heavy memory pressure, pages may have been swapped out from under the SGI Altix XPMEM driver, causing silent data corruption in the kernel. * the ixgbe driver is untested, but support was advertised for the Intel 82598 network card. If this card was present when the ixgbe driver was loaded, a NULL pointer dereference and a panic occurred. * on certain systems, if multiple InfiniBand queue pairs simultaneously fell into an error state, an overrun may have occurred, stopping traffic. * with bridging, when forward delay was set to zero, setting an interface to the forwarding state was delayed by one or possibly two timers, depending on whether STP was enabled. This may have caused long delays in moving an interface to the forwarding state. This issue caused packet loss when migrating virtual machines, preventing them from being migrated without interrupting applications. * on certain multinode systems, IPMI device nodes were created in reverse order of where they physically resided. * process hangs may have occurred while accessing application data files via asynchronous direct I/O system calls. * on systems with heavy lock traffic, a possible deadlock may have caused anything requiring locks over NFS to stop, or be very slow.

    Bug fixes :
    
    * when copying a small IPoIB packet from the original skb it was
    received in to a new, smaller skb, all fields in the new skb were not
    initialized. This may have caused a kernel oops.
    
    * previously, data may have been written beyond the end of an array,
    causing memory corruption on certain systems, resulting in hypervisor
    crashes during context switching.
    
    * a kernel crash may have occurred on heavily-used Samba servers after
    24 to 48 hours of use.
    
    * under heavy memory pressure, pages may have been swapped out from
    under the SGI Altix XPMEM driver, causing silent data corruption in
    the kernel.
    
    * the ixgbe driver is untested, but support was advertised for the
    Intel 82598 network card. If this card was present when the ixgbe
    driver was loaded, a NULL pointer dereference and a panic occurred.
    
    * on certain systems, if multiple InfiniBand queue pairs
    simultaneously fell into an error state, an overrun may have occurred,
    stopping traffic.
    
    * with bridging, when forward delay was set to zero, setting an
    interface to the forwarding state was delayed by one or possibly two
    timers, depending on whether STP was enabled. This may have caused
    long delays in moving an interface to the forwarding state. This issue
    caused packet loss when migrating virtual machines, preventing them
    from being migrated without interrupting applications.
    
    * on certain multinode systems, IPMI device nodes were created in
    reverse order of where they physically resided.
    
    * process hangs may have occurred while accessing application data
    files via asynchronous direct I/O system calls.
    
    * on systems with heavy lock traffic, a possible deadlock may have
    caused anything requiring locks over NFS to stop, or be very slow.
    Errors such as 'lockd: server [IP] not responding, timed out' were
    logged on client systems.
    
    * unexpected removals of USB devices may have caused a NULL pointer
    dereference in kobject_get_path.
    
    * on Itanium-based systems, repeatedly creating and destroying Windows
    guests may have caused Dom0 to crash, due to the
    'XENMEM_add_to_physmap' hypercall, used by para-virtualized drivers on
    HVM, being SMP-unsafe.
    
    * when using an MD software RAID, crashes may have occurred when
    devices were removed or changed while being iterated through. Correct
    locking is now used.
    
    * break requests had no effect when using 'Serial Over Lan' with the
    Intel 82571 network card. This issue may have caused log in problems.
    
    * on Itanium-based systems, module_free() referred the first parameter
    before checking it was valid. This may have caused a kernel panic when
    exiting SystemTap.
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 users are advised to upgrade to these
    updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these
    issues."

    The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux

    This update addresses the following security issues :
    
    * the sendmsg() function in the Linux kernel did not block during UNIX
    socket garbage collection. This could, potentially, lead to a local
    denial of service. (CVE-2008-5300, Important)

    function in the Linux kernel could make indirect recursive calls to
    itself. This could, potentially, lead to a local denial of service.
    (CVE-2008-5029, Important)
    
    * a deficiency was found in the Linux kernel virtual file system (VFS)
    implementation. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to make a
    series of file creations within deleted directories, possibly causing
    a denial of service. (CVE-2008-3275, Moderate)
    
    * a buffer underflow flaw was found in the Linux kernel IB700 SBC
    watchdog timer driver. This deficiency could lead to a possible
    information leak. By default, the '/dev/watchdog' device is accessible
    only to the root user. (CVE-2008-5702, Low)
    
    * the hfs and hfsplus file systems code failed to properly handle
    corrupted data structures. This could, potentially, lead to a local
    denial of service. (CVE-2008-4933, CVE-2008-5025, Low)
    
    * a flaw was found in the hfsplus file system implementation. This
    could, potentially, lead to a local denial of service when write
    operations were performed. (CVE-2008-4934, Low)
    
    This update also fixes the following bugs :
    
    * when running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.6 and 4.7 on some systems
    running Intel(r) CPUs, the cpuspeed daemon did not run, preventing the
    CPU speed from being changed, such as not being reduced to an idle
    state when not in use.
    
    * mmap() could be used to gain access to beyond the first megabyte of
    RAM, due to insufficient checks in the Linux kernel code. Checks have
    been added to prevent this.
    
    * attempting to turn keyboard LEDs on and off rapidly on keyboards
    with slow keyboard controllers, may have caused key presses to fail.
    
    * after migrating a hypervisor guest, the MAC address table was not
    updated, causing packet loss and preventing network connections to the
    guest. Now, a gratuitous ARP request is sent after migration. This
    refreshes the ARP caches, minimizing network downtime.
    
    * writing crash dumps with diskdump may have caused a kernel panic on
    Non-Uniform Memory Access (NUMA) systems with certain memory
    configurations.
    
    * on big-endian systems, such as PowerPC, the getsockopt() function
    incorrectly returned 0 depending on the parameters passed to it when
    the time to live (TTL) value equaled 255, possibly causing memory
    corruption and application crashes.
    
    * a problem in the kernel packages provided by the RHSA-2008:0508
    advisory caused the Linux kernel's built-in memory copy procedure to
    return the wrong error code after recovering from a page fault on
    AMD64 and Intel 64 systems. This may have caused other Linux kernel
    functions to return wrong error codes.
    
    * a divide-by-zero bug in the Linux kernel process scheduler, which
    may have caused kernel panics on certain systems, has been resolved.
    
    * the netconsole kernel module caused the Linux kernel to hang when
    slave interfaces of bonded network interfaces were started, resulting
    in a system hang or kernel panic when restarting the network.
    
    * the '/proc/xen/' directory existed even if systems were not running
    Red Hat Virtualization. This may have caused problems for third-party
    software that checks virtualization-ability based on the existence of
    '/proc/xen/'. Note: this update will remove the '/proc/xen/' directory
    on systems not running Red Hat Virtualization.

    packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues."

    "Updated kernel packages that resolve several security issues and fix
    various bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.
    
    This update has been rated as having important security impact by the
    Red Hat Security Response Team.
    
    The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux
    operating system.
    
    This update addresses the following security issues :
    
    * the sendmsg() function in the Linux kernel did not block during UNIX
    socket garbage collection. This could, potentially, lead to a local
    denial of service. (CVE-2008-5300, Important)
    
    * when fput() was called to close a socket, the __scm_destroy()
    function in the Linux kernel could make indirect recursive calls to
    itself. This could, potentially, lead to a local denial of service.
    (CVE-2008-5029, Important)
    
    * a deficiency was found in the Linux kernel virtual file system (VFS)
    implementation. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to make a
    series of file creations within deleted directories, possibly causing
    a denial of service. (CVE-2008-3275, Moderate)
    
    * a buffer underflow flaw was found in the Linux kernel IB700 SBC
    watchdog timer driver. This deficiency could lead to a possible
    information leak. By default, the '/dev/watchdog' device is accessible
    only to the root user. (CVE-2008-5702, Low)
    
    * the hfs and hfsplus file systems code failed to properly handle
    corrupted data structures. This could, potentially, lead to a local
    denial of service. (CVE-2008-4933, CVE-2008-5025, Low)
    
    * a flaw was found in the hfsplus file system implementation. This
    could, potentially, lead to a local denial of service when write
    operations were performed. (CVE-2008-4934, Low)
    
    This update also fixes the following bugs :
    
    * when running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.6 and 4.7 on some systems
    running Intel(r) CPUs, the cpuspeed daemon did not run, preventing the
    CPU speed from being changed, such as not being reduced to an idle
    state when not in use.
    
    * mmap() could be used to gain access to beyond the first megabyte of
    RAM, due to insufficient checks in the Linux kernel code. Checks have
    been added to prevent this.
    
    * attempting to turn keyboard LEDs on and off rapidly on keyboards
    with slow keyboard controllers, may have caused key presses to fail.
    
    * after migrating a hypervisor guest, the MAC address table was not
    updated, causing packet loss and preventing network connections to the
    guest. Now, a gratuitous ARP request is sent after migration. This
    refreshes the ARP caches, minimizing network downtime.
    
    * writing crash dumps with diskdump may have caused a kernel panic on
    Non-Uniform Memory Access (NUMA) systems with certain memory
    configurations.
    
    * on big-endian systems, such as PowerPC, the getsockopt() function
    incorrectly returned 0 depending on the parameters passed to it when
    the time to live (TTL) value equaled 255, possibly causing memory
    corruption and application crashes.
    
    * a problem in the kernel packages provided by the RHSA-2008:0508
    advisory caused the Linux kernel's built-in memory copy procedure to
    return the wrong error code after recovering from a page fault on
    AMD64 and Intel 64 systems. This may have caused other Linux kernel
    functions to return wrong error codes.
    
    * a divide-by-zero bug in the Linux kernel process scheduler, which
    may have caused kernel panics on certain systems, has been resolved.
    
    * the netconsole kernel module caused the Linux kernel to hang when
    slave interfaces of bonded network interfaces were started, resulting
    in a system hang or kernel panic when restarting the network.
    
    * the '/proc/xen/' directory existed even if systems were not running
    Red Hat Virtualization. This may have caused problems for third-party
    software that checks virtualization-ability based on the existence of
    '/proc/xen/'. Note: this update will remove the '/proc/xen/' directory
    on systems not running Red Hat Virtualization.
    
    All Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 users should upgrade to these updated
    packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues."

    descriptionSecurity fixes : - a missing capability check was found in the Linux kernel do_change_type routine. This could allow a local unprivileged user to gain privileged access or cause a denial of service. (CVE-2008-2931, Important) - a flaw was found in the Linux kernel Direct-IO implementation. This could allow a local unprivileged user to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2007-6716, Important) - Tobias Klein reported a missing check in the Linux kernel Open Sound System (OSS) implementation. This deficiency could lead to a possible information leak. (CVE-2008-3272, Moderate) - a deficiency was found in the Linux kernel virtual filesystem (VFS) implementation. This could allow a local unprivileged user to attempt file creation within deleted directories, possibly causing a denial of service. (CVE-2008-3275, Moderate) - a flaw was found in the Linux kernel tmpfs implementation. This could allow a local unprivileged user to read sensitive information from the kernel. (CVE-2007-6417, Moderate) Bug fixes : - when copying a small IPoIB packet from the original skb it was received in to a new, smaller skb, all fields in the new skb were not initialized. This may have caused a kernel oops. - previously, data may have been written beyond the end of an array, causing memory corruption on certain systems, resulting in hypervisor crashes during context switching. - a kernel crash may have occurred on heavily-used Samba servers after 24 to 48 hours of use. - under heavy memory pressure, pages may have been swapped out from under the SGI Altix XPMEM driver, causing silent data corruption in the kernel. - the ixgbe driver is untested, but support was advertised for the Intel 82598 network card. If this card was present when the ixgbe driver was loaded, a NULL pointer dereference and a panic occurred. - on certain systems, if multiple InfiniBand queue pairs simultaneously fell into an error state, an overrun may have occurred, stopping traffic. - with bridging, when forward delay was set to zero, setting an interface to the forwarding state was delayed by one or possibly two timers, depending on whether STP was enabled. This may have caused long delays in moving an interface to the forwarding state. This issue caused packet loss when migrating virtual machines, preventing them from being migrated without interrupting applications. - on certain multinode systems, IPMI device nodes were created in reverse order of where they physically resided. - process hangs may have occurred while accessing application data files via asynchronous direct I/O system calls. - on systems with heavy lock traffic, a possible deadlock may have caused anything requiring locks over NFS to stop, or be very slow.

      - on systems with heavy lock traffic, a possible deadlock
        may have caused anything requiring locks over NFS to
        stop, or be very slow. Errors such as 'lockd: server
        [IP] not responding, timed out' were logged on client
        systems.
    
      - unexpected removals of USB devices may have caused a
        NULL pointer dereference in kobject_get_path.
    
      - on Itanium-based systems, repeatedly creating and
        destroying Windows guests may have caused Dom0 to crash,
        due to the 'XENMEM_add_to_physmap' hypercall, used by
        para-virtualized drivers on HVM, being SMP-unsafe.
    
      - when using an MD software RAID, crashes may have
        occurred when devices were removed or changed while
        being iterated through. Correct locking is now used.
    
      - break requests had no effect when using 'Serial Over
        Lan' with the Intel 82571 network card. This issue may
        have caused log in problems.
    
      - on Itanium-based systems, module_free() referred the
        first parameter before checking it was valid. This may
        have caused a kernel panic when exiting SystemTap."

    descriptionSeveral vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service or arbitrary code execution. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2007-6282 Dirk Nehring discovered a vulnerability in the IPsec code that allows remote users to cause a denial of service by sending a specially crafted ESP packet. - CVE-2008-0598 Tavis Ormandy discovered a vulnerability that allows local users to access uninitialized kernel memory, possibly leaking sensitive data. This issue is specific to the amd64-flavour kernel images. - CVE-2008-2729 Andi Kleen discovered an issue where uninitialized kernel memory was being leaked to userspace during an exception. This issue may allow local users to gain access to sensitive data. Only the amd64-flavour Debian kernel images are affected. - CVE-2008-2812 Alan Cox discovered an issue in multiple tty drivers that allows local users to trigger a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) and possibly obtain elevated privileges. - CVE-2008-2826 Gabriel Campana discovered an integer overflow in the sctp code that can be exploited by local users to cause a denial of service. - CVE-2008-2931 Miklos Szeredi reported a missing privilege check in the do_change_type() function. This allows local, unprivileged users to change the properties of mount points. - CVE-2008-3272 Tobias Klein reported a locally exploitable data leak in the snd_seq_oss_synth_make_info() function. This may allow local users to gain access to sensitive information. - CVE-2008-3275 Zoltan Sogor discovered a coding error in the VFS that allows local users to exploit a kernel memory leak resulting in a denial of service.

    descriptiona. Service Console update for DHCP and third-party library update for DHCP client. DHCP is an Internet-standard protocol by which a computer can be connected to a local network, ask to be given configuration information, and receive from a server enough information to configure itself as a member of that network. A stack-based buffer overflow in the script_write_params method in ISC DHCP dhclient allows remote DHCP servers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted subnet-mask option. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-0692 to this issue. An insecure temporary file use flaw was discovered in the DHCP daemon

(CVE-2008-3525) - On AMD64 some string operations could leak kernel information into userspace. (CVE-2008-0598) - Added range checking in ASN.1 handling for the CIFS and SNMP NAT netfilter modules. (CVE-2008-1673) - Fixed range checking in the snd_seq OSS ioctl, which could be used to leak information from the kernel. (CVE-2008-3272) - Fixed a memory leak when looking up deleted directories which could be used to run the system out of memory. (CVE-2008-3275) - The do_change_type function in fs/namespace.c did not verify that the caller has the CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability, which allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service by modifying the properties of a mountpoint. (CVE-2008-2931) - Various NULL ptr checks have been added to tty op functions, which might have been used by local attackers to execute code. We think that this affects only devices openable by root, so the impact is limited. (CVE-2008-2812)

This could allow a local, unprivileged user to acquire the privileges of a different group and obtain access to sensitive information. (CVE-2008-4210, Important) * a race condition in the mincore system core allowed a local, unprivileged user to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2006-4814, Moderate) * a flaw was found in the aacraid SCSI driver. This allowed a local, unprivileged user to make ioctl calls to the driver which should otherwise be restricted to privileged users. (CVE-2007-4308, Moderate) * two buffer overflow flaws were found in the Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) subsystem. A local, unprivileged user could use these flaws to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2007-6063, CVE-2007-6151, Moderate) * a flaw was found in the way core dump files were created. If a local, unprivileged user could make a root-owned process dump a core file into a user-writable directory, the user could gain read access to that core file, potentially compromising sensitive information. (CVE-2007-6206, Moderate) * a deficiency was found in the Linux kernel virtual file system (VFS) implementation. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to attempt file creation within deleted directories, possibly causing a denial of service. (CVE-2008-3275, Moderate) All users of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 on 32-bit architectures should upgrade to these updated packages which address these vulnerabilities.

(CVE-2008-3275) In certain situations, the fix for CVE-2008-0598 from USN-623-1 was causing infinite loops in the writev syscall. This update corrects the mistake. We apologize for the inconvenience. Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    descriptionSeveral vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service or leak sensitive data. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2008-3272 Tobias Klein reported a locally exploitable data leak in the snd_seq_oss_synth_make_info() function. This may allow local users to gain access to sensitive information. - CVE-2008-3275 Zoltan Sogor discovered a coding error in the VFS that allows local users to exploit a kernel memory leak resulting in a denial of service. - CVE-2008-3276 Eugene Teo reported an integer overflow in the DCCP subsystem that may allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service in the form of a kernel panic. - CVE-2008-3526 Eugene Teo reported a missing bounds check in the SCTP subsystem. By exploiting an integer overflow in the SCTP_AUTH_KEY handling code, remote attackers may be able to cause a denial of service in the form of a kernel panic. - CVE-2008-3534 Kel Modderman reported an issue in the tmpfs filesystem that allows local users to crash a system by triggering a kernel BUG() assertion. - CVE-2008-3535 Alexey Dobriyan discovered an off-by-one-error in the iov_iter_advance function which can be exploited by local users to crash a system, resulting in a denial of service. - CVE-2008-3792 Vlad Yasevich reported several NULL pointer reference conditions in the SCTP subsystem that can be triggered by entering sctp-auth codepaths when the AUTH feature is inactive. This may allow attackers to cause a denial of service condition via a system panic. - CVE-2008-3915 Johann Dahm and David Richter reported an issue in the nfsd subsystem that may allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a buffer overflow.

    descriptionFrom Red Hat Security Advisory 2008:0973 : Updated kernel packages that resolve several security issues and fix various bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3. This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. This update addresses the following security issues : * Tavis Ormandy discovered a deficiency in the Linux kernel 32-bit and 64-bit emulation. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to prepare and run a specially crafted binary which would use this deficiency to leak uninitialized and potentially sensitive data. (CVE-2008-0598, Important) * a possible kernel memory leak was found in the Linux kernel Simple Internet Transition (SIT) INET6 implementation. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2008-2136, Important) * missing capability checks were found in the SBNI WAN driver which could allow a local user to bypass intended capability restrictions. (CVE-2008-3525, Important) * the do_truncate() and generic_file_splice_write() functions did not clear the setuid and setgid bits. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to obtain access to privileged information. (CVE-2008-4210, Important) * a buffer overflow flaw was found in Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) subsystem. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2007-6063, Moderate) * multiple NULL pointer dereferences were found in various Linux kernel network drivers. These drivers were missing checks for terminal validity, which could allow privilege escalation. (CVE-2008-2812, Moderate) * a deficiency was found in the Linux kernel virtual filesystem (VFS) implementation. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to attempt file creation within deleted directories, possibly causing a denial of service. (CVE-2008-3275, Moderate) This update also fixes the following bugs : * the incorrect kunmap function was used in nfs_xdr_readlinkres. kunmap() was used where kunmap_atomic() should have been. As a consequence, if an NFSv2 or NFSv3 server exported a volume containing a symlink which included a path equal to or longer than the local system

    descriptionThis update fixes various security issues and some bugs in the SUSE Linux Enterprise 9 kernel. The following security issues were fixed : - A crafted NFS write request might have caused a buffer overwrite, potentially causing a kernel crash. (CVE-2010-2521) - The x86_64 copy_to_user implementation might have leaked kernel memory depending on specific user buffer setups. (CVE-2008-0598) - drivers/net/r8169.c in the r8169 driver in the Linux kernel did not properly check the size of an Ethernet frame that exceeds the MTU, which allows remote attackers to (1) cause a denial of service (temporary network outage) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing A characters and certain packets containing E characters; or (2) cause a denial of service (system crash) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing
