Common Attack Pattern Enumeration and Classification (CAPEC)

  • HTTP DoS
    An attacker performs flooding at the HTTP level to bring down only a particular web application rather than anything listening on a TCP/IP connection. This denial of service attack requires substantially fewer packets to be sent which makes DoS harder to detect. This is an equivalent of SYN flood in HTTP. The idea is to keep the HTTP session alive indefinitely and then repeat that hundreds of times. This attack targets resource depletion weaknesses in web server software. The web server will wait to attacker's responses on the initiated HTTP sessions while the connection threads are being exhausted.

    descriptionThis update fixes various security issues and some bugs in the SUSE Linux Enterprise 9 kernel. - The collect_rx_frame function in drivers/isdn/hisax/hfc_usb.c in the Linux kernel allows attackers to have an unspecified impact via a crafted HDLC packet that arrives over ISDN and triggers a buffer under-read. (CVE-2009-4005) - Array index error in the gdth_read_event function in drivers/scsi/gdth.c in the Linux kernel allows local users to cause a denial of service or possibly gain privileges via a negative event index in an IOCTL request. (CVE-2009-3080) - Missing CAP_NET_ADMIN checks in the ebtables netfilter code might have allowed local attackers to modify bridge firewall settings. (CVE-2010-0007) - drivers/net/e1000/e1000_main.c in the e1000 driver in the Linux kernel handles Ethernet frames that exceed the MTU by processing certain trailing payload data as if it were a complete frame, which allows remote attackers to bypass packet filters via a large packet with a crafted payload. (CVE-2009-4536) - The dbg_lvl file for the megaraid_sas driver in the Linux kernel has world-writable permissions, which allows local users to change the (1) behavior and (2) logging level of the driver by modifying this file. (CVE-2009-3889) - The z90crypt_unlocked_ioctl function in the z90crypt driver in the Linux kernel does not perform a capability check for the Z90QUIESCE operation, which allows local users to leverage euid 0 privileges to force a driver outage. (CVE-2009-1883) - Memory leak in the appletalk subsystem in the Linux kernel, when the appletalk and ipddp modules are loaded but the ipddp

  • NASL familyMandriva Local Security Checks
    NASL idMANDRIVA_MDVSA-2009-329.NASL
    descriptionSome vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux 2.6 kernel : Memory leak in the appletalk subsystem in the Linux kernel 2.4.x through 2.4.37.6 and 2.6.x through 2.6.31, when the appletalk and ipddp modules are loaded but the ipddpN device is not found, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via IP-DDP datagrams. (CVE-2009-2903) Multiple race conditions in fs/pipe.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.32-rc6 allow local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or gain privileges by attempting to open an anonymous pipe via a /proc/*/fd/ pathname. (CVE-2009-3547) The tcf_fill_node function in net/sched/cls_api.c in the netlink subsystem in the Linux kernel 2.6.x before 2.6.32-rc5, and 2.4.37.6 and earlier, does not initialize a certain tcm__pad2 structure member, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via unspecified vectors. NOTE: this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2005-4881. (CVE-2009-3612) net/unix/af_unix.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.31.4 and earlier allows local users to cause a denial of service (system hang) by creating an abstract-namespace AF_UNIX listening socket, performing a shutdown operation on this socket, and then performing a series of connect operations to this socket. (CVE-2009-3621) Integer overflow in the kvm_dev_ioctl_get_supported_cpuid function in arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31.4 allows local users to have an unspecified impact via a KVM_GET_SUPPORTED_CPUID request to the kvm_arch_dev_ioctl function. (CVE-2009-3638) The nfs4_proc_lock function in fs/nfs/nfs4proc.c in the NFSv4 client in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31-rc4 allows remote NFS servers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and panic) by sending a certain response containing incorrect file attributes, which trigger attempted use of an open file that lacks NFSv4 state. (CVE-2009-3726) The ip_frag_reasm function in ipv4/ip_fragment.c in Linux kernel 2.6.32-rc8, and possibly earlier versions, calls IP_INC_STATS_BH with an incorrect argument, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and hang) via long IP packets, possibly related to the ip_defrag function.

  • NASL familySuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL idSUSE_11_0_KERNEL-100203.NASL
    descriptionThis kernel update for openSUSE 11.0 fixes some bugs and several security problems. The following security issues are fixed: CVE-2009-4536: drivers/net/e1000/e1000_main.c in the e1000 driver in the Linux kernel handles Ethernet frames that exceed the MTU by processing certain trailing payload data as if it were a complete frame, which allows remote attackers to bypass packet filters via a large packet with a crafted payload. CVE-2009-4538: drivers/net/e1000e/netdev.c in the e1000e driver in the Linux kernel does not properly check the size of an Ethernet frame that exceeds the MTU, which allows remote attackers to have an unspecified impact via crafted packets. CVE-2010-0007: Missing CAP_NET_ADMIN checks in the ebtables netfilter code might have allowed local attackers to modify bridge firewall settings. CVE-2010-0003: An information leakage on fatal signals on x86_64 machines was fixed. CVE-2009-4138: drivers/firewire/ohci.c in the Linux kernel, when packet-per-buffer mode is used, allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unknown other impact via an unspecified ioctl associated with receiving an ISO packet that contains zero in the payload-length field. CVE-2009-4308: The ext4_decode_error function in fs/ext4/super.c in the ext4 filesystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.32 allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference), and possibly have unspecified other impact, via a crafted read-only filesystem that lacks a journal. CVE-2009-3939: The poll_mode_io file for the megaraid_sas driver in the Linux kernel 2.6.31.6 and earlier has world-writable permissions, which allows local users to change the I/O mode of the driver by modifying this file. CVE-2009-4021: The fuse_direct_io function in fs/fuse/file.c in the fuse subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.32-rc7 might allow attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference and OOPS) via vectors possibly related to a memory-consumption attack. CVE-2009-3547: A race condition in the pipe(2) systemcall could be used by local attackers to hang the machine. The kernel in Moblin 2.0 uses NULL ptr protection which avoids code execution possbilities. CVE-2009-2903: Memory leak in the appletalk subsystem in the Linux kernel 2.4.x through 2.4.37.6 and 2.6.x through 2.6.31, when the appletalk and ipddp modules are loaded but the ipddp

    descriptionBUGTRAQ ID: 36379 CVE(CAN) ID: CVE-2009-2903 Linux Kernel是开放源码操作系统Linux所使用的内核。 对于加载了appletalk和ipddp模块的Linux主机,在检查ipddpN设备时如果该设备不存在handle_ip_over_ddp()函数会对atalk_rcv()函数返回-NODEV,之后atalk_rcv()函数直接将该值返回给调用程序。由于对不可接受的IP-DDP数据报缺少 kfree_skb()调用,向目标主机发送足够多的AppleTalk-IP数据报就会耗尽可用的内核内存。 Linux kernel 2.6.x 厂商补丁: Linux ----- 目前厂商已经发布了升级补丁以修复这个安全问题,请到厂商的主页下载: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/davem/net-next-2.6.git;a=commit;h=ffcfb8db540ff879c2a85bf7e404954281443414

    titleLinux Kernel AppleTalk-IP内存泄露拒绝服务漏洞
  • bulletinFamilyexploit
    descriptionBugraq ID: 36379 CVE ID:CVE-2009-2903 Linux是一款开放源代码的操作系统。 Linux Kernel AppleTalk处理部分AppleTalk-IP数据帧存在内存泄漏,远程攻击者可以利用漏洞发送大量类似数据帧对系统进行拒绝服务攻击。 当Linux主机加载了appletalk和ipddp模块时,在检查ipddpN设备过程中如果该设备不存在handle_ip_over_ddp() 函数会返回-NODEV给atalk_rcv()函数,之后atalk_rcv()函数会直接将该值返回给调用程序。由于对不能接受的IP-DDP数据帧缺少kfree_skb()调用,向目标主机发送大量畸形AppleTalk-IP数据报就会耗尽所有可用的内核内存,导致拒绝服务攻击。 RedHat Enterprise MRG v1 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES

statementRed Hat is aware of this issue. Please see http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-19077 This issue did not affect the versions of Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5, as the affected driver is not enabled in these kernels. The affected driver is available in Red Hat Enterprise MRG. It is also available in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, but only if the kernel-unsupported package is installed. Future kernel updates in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and Red Hat Enterprise MRG will address this issue.
