Summary

The ABI in the Linux kernel 2.6.28 and earlier on s390, powerpc, sparc64, and mips 64-bit platforms requires that a 32-bit argument in a 64-bit register was properly sign extended when sent from a user-mode application, but cannot verify this, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly gain privileges via a crafted system call.

Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE)

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.
  • Server Side Include (SSI) Injection
    An attacker can use Server Side Include (SSI) Injection to send code to a web application that then gets executed by the web server. Doing so enables the attacker to achieve similar results to Cross Site Scripting, viz., arbitrary code execution and information disclosure, albeit on a more limited scale, since the SSI directives are nowhere near as powerful as a full-fledged scripting language. Nonetheless, the attacker can conveniently gain access to sensitive files, such as password files, and execute shell commands.
  • Cross Zone Scripting
    An attacker is able to cause a victim to load content into their web-browser that bypasses security zone controls and gain access to increased privileges to execute scripting code or other web objects such as unsigned ActiveX controls or applets. This is a privilege elevation attack targeted at zone-based web-browser security. In a zone-based model, pages belong to one of a set of zones corresponding to the level of privilege assigned to that page. Pages in an untrusted zone would have a lesser level of access to the system and/or be restricted in the types of executable content it was allowed to invoke. In a cross-zone scripting attack, a page that should be assigned to a less privileged zone is granted the privileges of a more trusted zone. This can be accomplished by exploiting bugs in the browser, exploiting incorrect configuration in the zone controls, through a cross-site scripting attack that causes the attackers' content to be treated as coming from a more trusted page, or by leveraging some piece of system functionality that is accessible from both the trusted and less trusted zone. This attack differs from "Restful Privilege Escalation" in that the latter correlates to the inadequate securing of RESTful access methods (such as HTTP DELETE) on the server, while cross-zone scripting attacks the concept of security zones as implemented by a browser.
  • Cross Site Scripting through Log Files
    An attacker may leverage a system weakness where logs are susceptible to log injection to insert scripts into the system's logs. If these logs are later viewed by an administrator through a thin administrative interface and the log data is not properly HTML encoded before being written to the page, the attackers' scripts stored in the log will be executed in the administrative interface with potentially serious consequences. This attack pattern is really a combination of two other attack patterns: log injection and stored cross site scripting.
  • Command Line Execution through SQL Injection
    An attacker uses standard SQL injection methods to inject data into the command line for execution. This could be done directly through misuse of directives such as MSSQL_xp_cmdshell or indirectly through injection of data into the database that would be interpreted as shell commands. Sometime later, an unscrupulous backend application (or could be part of the functionality of the same application) fetches the injected data stored in the database and uses this data as command line arguments without performing proper validation. The malicious data escapes that data plane by spawning new commands to be executed on the host.

  • NASL familyMandriva Local Security Checks
    NASL idMANDRIVA_MDVSA-2009-135.NASL
    descriptionSome vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux 2.6 kernel : The selinux_ip_postroute_iptables_compat function in security/selinux/hooks.c in the SELinux subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27.22, and 2.6.28.x before 2.6.28.10, when compat_net is enabled, omits calls to avc_has_perm for the (1) node and (2) port, which allows local users to bypass intended restrictions on network traffic. NOTE: this was incorrectly reported as an issue fixed in 2.6.27.21. (CVE-2009-1184) The exit_notify function in kernel/exit.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.30-rc1 does not restrict exit signals when the CAP_KILL capability is held, which allows local users to send an arbitrary signal to a process by running a program that modifies the exit_signal field and then uses an exec system call to launch a setuid application. (CVE-2009-1337) The (1) agp_generic_alloc_page and (2) agp_generic_alloc_pages functions in drivers/char/agp/generic.c in the agp subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.30-rc3 do not zero out pages that may later be available to a user-space process, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by reading these pages. (CVE-2009-1192) The ABI in the Linux kernel 2.6.28 and earlier on s390, powerpc, sparc64, and mips 64-bit platforms requires that a 32-bit argument in a 64-bit register was properly sign extended when sent from a user-mode application, but cannot verify this, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly gain privileges via a crafted system call. (CVE-2009-0029) The __inet6_check_established function in net/ipv6/inet6_hashtables.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.29, when Network Namespace Support (aka NET_NS) is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via vectors involving IPv6 packets. (CVE-20090-1360) The inode double locking code in fs/ocfs2/file.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.30 before 2.6.30-rc3, 2.6.27 before 2.6.27.24, 2.6.29 before 2.6.29.4, and possibly other versions down to 2.6.19 allows local users to cause a denial of service (prevention of file creation and removal) via a series of splice system calls that trigger a deadlock between the generic_file_splice_write, splice_from_pipe, and ocfs2_file_splice_write functions. (CVE-2009-1961) Integer underflow in the e1000_clean_rx_irq function in drivers/net/e1000/e1000_main.c in the e1000 driver in the Linux kernel before 2.6.30-rc8, the e1000e driver in the Linux kernel, and Intel Wired Ethernet (aka e1000) before 7.5.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via a crafted frame size. (CVE-2009-1385) The nfs_permission function in fs/nfs/dir.c in the NFS client implementation in the Linux kernel 2.6.29.3 and earlier, when atomic_open is available, does not check execute (aka EXEC or MAY_EXEC) permission bits, which allows local users to bypass permissions and execute files, as demonstrated by files on an NFSv4 fileserver. (CVE-2009-1630) Additionally, the kernel package was updated to the Linux upstream stable version 2.6.27.24. To update your kernel, please follow the directions located at : http://www.mandriva.com/en/security/kernelupdate

    NASL idSUSE_11_1_KERNEL-090225.NASL
    descriptionThis update fixes several security issues and hundreds of bugs in the openSUSE 11.1 kernel. The kernel was also updated to the stable version 2.6.27.19 and is now the same kernel as we are planning to ship with SUSE Linux Enterprise 11. This introduces kABI changes, so all kernel module packages also need to be rebuilt and reapplied. Following security issues are fixed: CVE-2009-0029: The ABI in the Linux kernel on s390, powerpc, sparc64, and mips 64-bit platforms requires that a 32-bit argument in a 64-bit register was properly sign extended when sent from a user-mode application, but cannot verify this, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly gain privileges via a crafted system call. CVE-2008-5079: net/atm/svc.c in the ATM subsystem in the Linux kernel allows local users to cause a denial of service (kernel infinite loop) by making two calls to svc_listen for the same socket, and then reading a /proc/net/atm/*vc file, related to corruption of the vcc table. CVE-2009-0028: A minor signal handling vulnerability was fixed, where a child could send his parent a arbitrary signal.

descriptionBUGTRAQ ID: 33275 CVE ID:CVE-2009-0029 Linux是一款开放源代码的操作系统。 Linux内核64位ABI系统调用参数处理存在问题,本地攻击者可以利用漏洞提升特权。 部分结构的ABI定义函数调用者必须对每个参数进行符号扩展来填满寄存器宽度,在linux系统调用处理上存在问题。 如在64位上使用这个系统调用: asmlinkage long sys_example(unsigned int index) { if (index &gt; 5) return -EINVAL; return example_array[index]; } 这意味着调用者必须对索引index进行符号扩展到64位,在这种情况下,调用者是处于用户控件,因此我们不能依靠正确的符号扩展。 但实际上只传递用户控制提送的参数修改系统调用函数。 如上例子可通过如下方法突破: 编译器创建代码会只测试寄存器中的底32位,确保其包含的索引值&lt;= 5,但是访问内存位置获得数组外的值可使用相同未修改(64位)寄存器作为索引寄存器,因为调用者必须确保寄存器的高32位包含零。但是因为值来自用户空间,因此不能保证其正确性,可导致地址异常,或用户空间读取或从不允许访问的内存位置中写入写出。 Linux kernel 2.6.28 -rc7 Linux

statementThis flaw affects most 64-bit architectures, including IBM S/390 and 64-bit PowerPC, but it does not affect x86_64 or Intel Itanium. The risks associated with fixing this flaw are greater than the security risk. We therefore currently have no plans to fix this flaw in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, or 5. Red Hat Enterprise MRG is not affected as it is not supported on 64-bit architectures other than x86_64.
