Summary

arch/x86/ia32/ia32entry.S in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31.4 on the x86_64 platform does not clear certain kernel registers before a return to user mode, which allows local users to read register values from an earlier process by switching an ia32 process to 64-bit mode.

Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE)

Common Attack Pattern Enumeration and Classification (CAPEC)

  • Subverting Environment Variable Values
    The attacker directly or indirectly modifies environment variables used by or controlling the target software. The attacker's goal is to cause the target software to deviate from its expected operation in a manner that benefits the attacker.
  • Footprinting
    An attacker engages in probing and exploration activity to identify constituents and properties of the target. Footprinting is a general term to describe a variety of information gathering techniques, often used by attackers in preparation for some attack. It consists of using tools to learn as much as possible about the composition, configuration, and security mechanisms of the targeted application, system or network. Information that might be collected during a footprinting effort could include open ports, applications and their versions, network topology, and similar information. While footprinting is not intended to be damaging (although certain activities, such as network scans, can sometimes cause disruptions to vulnerable applications inadvertently) it may often pave the way for more damaging attacks.
  • Exploiting Trust in Client (aka Make the Client Invisible)
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities in client/server communication channel authentication and data integrity. It leverages the implicit trust a server places in the client, or more importantly, that which the server believes is the client. An attacker executes this type of attack by placing themselves in the communication channel between client and server such that communication directly to the server is possible where the server believes it is communicating only with a valid client. There are numerous variations of this type of attack.
  • Browser Fingerprinting
    An attacker carefully crafts small snippets of Java Script to efficiently detect the type of browser the potential victim is using. Many web-based attacks need prior knowledge of the web browser including the version of browser to ensure successful exploitation of a vulnerability. Having this knowledge allows an attacker to target the victim with attacks that specifically exploit known or zero day weaknesses in the type and version of the browser used by the victim. Automating this process via Java Script as a part of the same delivery system used to exploit the browser is considered more efficient as the attacker can supply a browser fingerprinting method and integrate it with exploit code, all contained in Java Script and in response to the same web page request by the browser.
  • Session Credential Falsification through Prediction
    This attack targets predictable session ID in order to gain privileges. The attacker can predict the session ID used during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking.

    descriptionUpdated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several 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 fixes the following security issues : * a flaw was found in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel. pci_unmap_single() presented a memory leak that could lead to IOMMU space exhaustion and a system crash. An attacker on the local network could trigger this flaw by using jumbo frames for large amounts of network traffic. (CVE-2009-3613, Important) * NULL pointer dereference flaws were found in the r128 driver in the Linux kernel. Checks to test if the Concurrent Command Engine state was initialized were missing in private IOCTL functions. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a local denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2009-3620, Important) * an information leak was found in the Linux kernel. On AMD64 systems, 32-bit processes could access and read certain 64-bit registers by temporarily switching themselves to 64-bit mode. (CVE-2009-2910, Moderate) * the unix_stream_connect() function in the Linux kernel did not check if a UNIX domain socket was in the shutdown state. This could lead to a deadlock. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2009-3621, Moderate) This update also fixes the following bugs : * an iptables rule with the recent module and a hit count value greater than the ip_pkt_list_tot parameter (the default is 20), did not have any effect over packets, as the hit count could not be reached. (BZ#529306) * in environments that use dual-controller storage devices with the cciss driver, Device-Mapper Multipath maps could not be detected and configured, due to the cciss driver not exporting the bus attribute via sysfs. This attribute is now exported. (BZ#529309) * the kernel crashed with a divide error when a certain joystick was attached. (BZ#532027) * a bug in the mptctl_do_mpt_command() function in the mpt driver may have resulted in crashes during boot on i386 systems with certain adapters using the mpt driver, and also running the hugemem kernel. (BZ#533798) * on certain hardware, the igb driver was unable to detect link statuses correctly. This may have caused problems for network bonding, such as failover not occurring. (BZ#534105) * the RHSA-2009:1024 update introduced a regression. After updating to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.8 and rebooting, network links often failed to be brought up for interfaces using the forcedeth driver.

    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

    handles Ethernet frames that exceed the MTU by processing certain
    trailing payload data as if it were a complete frame, which allows

    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'N' device is not
    found, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory
    consumption) via IP-DDP datagrams.
    
    CVE-2009-3621: 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-2009-3612: 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.
    
    CVE-2009-3620: The ATI Rage 128 (aka r128) driver in the Linux kernel
    before 2.6.31-git11 does not properly verify Concurrent Command Engine
    (CCE) state initialization, which allows local users to cause a denial
    of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly
    gain privileges via unspecified ioctl calls.
    
    CVE-2009-3726: 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-2009-3286: NFSv4 in the Linux kernel 2.6.18, and possibly other
    versions, does not properly clean up an inode when an O_EXCL create
    fails, which causes files to be created with insecure settings such as
    setuid bits, and possibly allows local users to gain privileges,
    related to the execution of the do_open_permission function even when
    a create fails.
    
    CVE-2009-2910: arch/x86/ia32/ia32entry.S in the Linux kernel before
    2.6.31.4 on the x86_64 platform does not clear certain kernel
    registers before a return to user mode, which allows local users to
    read register values from an earlier process by switching an ia32
    process to 64-bit mode.
    
    CVE-2009-3238: The get_random_int function in drivers/char/random.c in
    the Linux kernel before 2.6.30 produces insufficiently random numbers,
    which allows attackers to predict the return value, and possibly
    defeat protection mechanisms based on randomization, via vectors that
    leverage the function's tendency to 'return the same value over and
    over again for long stretches of time.'
    
    CVE-2009-2848: The execve function in the Linux kernel, possibly
    2.6.30-rc6 and earlier, does not properly clear the
    current->clear_child_tid pointer, which allows local users to cause a
    denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly gain privileges via
    a clone system call with CLONE_CHILD_SETTID or CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID
    enabled, which is not properly handled during thread creation and
    exit.
    
    CVE-2009-3002: The Linux kernel before 2.6.31-rc7 does not initialize
    certain data structures within getname functions, which allows local
    users to read the contents of some kernel memory locations by calling
    getsockname on (1) an AF_APPLETALK socket, related to the
    atalk_getname function in net/appletalk/ddp.c; (2) an AF_IRDA socket,
    related to the irda_getname function in net/irda/af_irda.c; (3) an
    AF_ECONET socket, related to the econet_getname function in
    net/econet/af_econet.c; (4) an AF_NETROM socket, related to the
    nr_getname function in net/netrom/af_netrom.c; (5) an AF_ROSE socket,
    related to the rose_getname function in net/rose/af_rose.c; or (6) a
    raw CAN socket, related to the raw_getname function in net/can/raw.c.
    
    CVE-2009-1633: Multiple buffer overflows in the cifs subsystem in the
    Linux kernel before 2.6.29.4 allow remote CIFS servers to cause a
    denial of service (memory corruption) and possibly have unspecified
    other impact via (1) a malformed Unicode string, related to Unicode
    string area alignment in fs/cifs/sess.c; or (2) long Unicode
    characters, related to fs/cifs/cifssmb.c and the cifs_readdir function
    in fs/cifs/readdir.c."

    descriptionThis update fixes a several security issues and various bugs in the SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP 2 kernel. The following security issues were fixed: CVE-2009-3547: A race condition during pipe open could be used by local attackers to elevate privileges. - On x86_64 systems a information leak of high register contents (upper 32bit) was fixed. (CVE-2009-2910) - The randomness of the ASLR methods used in the kernel was increased. (CVE-2009-3238) - A information leak from the kernel due to uninitialized memory in AGP handling was fixed. (CVE-2009-1192) - A signed comparison in the ax25 sockopt handler was fixed which could be used to crash the kernel or potentially execute code. (CVE-2009-2909) - The execve function in the Linux kernel did not properly clear the current->clear_child_tid pointer, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly gain privileges via a clone system call with CLONE_CHILD_SETTID or CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID enabled, which is not properly handled during thread creation and exit. (CVE-2009-2848) - Fixed various sockethandler getname leaks, which could disclose memory previously used by the kernel or other userland processes to the local attacker. (CVE-2009-3002) - Multiple buffer overflows in the cifs subsystem in the Linux kernel allow remote CIFS servers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) and possibly have unspecified other impact via (1) a malformed Unicode string, related to Unicode string area alignment in fs/cifs/sess.c; or (2) long Unicode characters, related to fs/cifs/cifssmb.c and the cifs_readdir function in fs/cifs/readdir.c. (CVE-2009-1633) Also see the RPM changelog for more changes.

    descriptionUpdated kernel packages that fix several security issues and multiple 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. Security fixes : * 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 denial of service issue. (CVE-2008-5029, Important) * 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) * the exit_notify() function in the Linux kernel did not properly reset the exit signal if a process executed a set user ID (setuid) application before exiting. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to elevate their privileges. (CVE-2009-1337, Important) * a flaw was found in the Intel PRO/1000 network driver in the Linux kernel. Frames with sizes near the MTU of an interface may be split across multiple hardware receive descriptors. Receipt of such a frame could leak through a validation check, leading to a corruption of the length check. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted packet that would cause a denial of service or code execution. (CVE-2009-1385, Important) * the ADDR_COMPAT_LAYOUT and MMAP_PAGE_ZERO flags were not cleared when a setuid or setgid program was executed. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to bypass the mmap_min_addr protection mechanism and perform a NULL pointer dereference attack, or bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) security feature. (CVE-2009-1895, Important) * it was discovered that, when executing a new process, the clear_child_tid pointer in the Linux kernel is not cleared. If this pointer points to a writable portion of the memory of the new program, the kernel could corrupt four bytes of memory, possibly leading to a local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-2848, Important) * missing initialization flaws were found in getname() implementations in the IrDA sockets, AppleTalk DDP protocol, NET/ROM protocol, and ROSE protocol implementations in the Linux kernel. Certain data structures in these getname() implementations were not initialized properly before being copied to user-space. These flaws could lead to an information leak. (CVE-2009-3002, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in each of the following functions in the Linux kernel: pipe_read_open(), pipe_write_open(), and pipe_rdwr_open(). When the mutex lock is not held, the i_pipe pointer could be released by other processes before it is used to update the pipe

    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

    kernel. Frames with sizes near the MTU of an interface may be split

    could leak through a validation check, leading to a corruption of the

    mechanism and perform a NULL pointer dereference attack, or bypass the
    Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) security feature.
    (CVE-2009-1895, Important)
    
    * it was discovered that, when executing a new process, the
    clear_child_tid pointer in the Linux kernel is not cleared. If this
    pointer points to a writable portion of the memory of the new program,
    the kernel could corrupt four bytes of memory, possibly leading to a
    local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-2848,
    Important)
    
    * missing initialization flaws were found in getname() implementations
    in the IrDA sockets, AppleTalk DDP protocol, NET/ROM protocol, and
    ROSE protocol implementations in the Linux kernel. Certain data
    structures in these getname() implementations were not initialized
    properly before being copied to user-space. These flaws could lead to
    an information leak. (CVE-2009-3002, Important)
    
    * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in each of the following
    functions in the Linux kernel: pipe_read_open(), pipe_write_open(),
    and pipe_rdwr_open(). When the mutex lock is not held, the i_pipe
    pointer could be released by other processes before it is used to
    update the pipe's reader and writer counters. This could lead to a
    local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-3547,
    Important)
    
    Bug fixes :
    
    * this update adds the mmap_min_addr tunable and restriction checks to
    help prevent unprivileged users from creating new memory mappings
    below the minimum address. This can help prevent the exploitation of
    NULL pointer dereference bugs. Note that mmap_min_addr is set to zero
    (disabled) by default for backwards compatibility. (BZ#512642)
    
    * a bridge reference count problem in IPv6 has been fixed. (BZ#457010)
    
    * enforce null-termination of user-supplied arguments to setsockopt().
    (BZ#505514)
    
    * the gcc flag '-fno-delete-null-pointer-checks' was added to the
    kernel build options. This prevents gcc from optimizing out NULL
    pointer checks after the first use of a pointer. NULL pointer bugs are
    often exploited by attackers. Keeping these checks is a safety
    measure. (BZ#511185)
    
    * a check has been added to the IPv4 code to make sure that rt is not
    NULL, to help prevent future bugs in functions that call
    ip_append_data() from being exploitable. (BZ#520300)
    
    Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
    backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be
    rebooted for this update to take effect."

    descriptionSeveral vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service, sensitive memory leak or privilege escalation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems : - CVE-2009-2846 Michael Buesch noticed a typing issue in the eisa-eeprom driver for the hppa architecture. Local users could exploit this issue to gain access to restricted memory. - CVE-2009-2847 Ulrich Drepper noticed an issue in the do_sigalstack routine on 64-bit systems. This issue allows local users to gain access to potentially sensitive memory on the kernel stack. - CVE-2009-2848 Eric Dumazet discovered an issue in the execve path, where the clear_child_tid variable was not being properly cleared. Local users could exploit this issue to cause a denial of service (memory corruption). - CVE-2009-2849 Neil Brown discovered an issue in the sysfs interface to md devices. When md arrays are not active, local users can exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service (oops). - CVE-2009-2903 Mark Smith discovered a memory leak in the appletalk implementation. When the appletalk and ipddp modules are loaded, but no ipddp

    "Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that
    may lead to a denial of service, sensitive memory leak or privilege
    escalation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
    identifies the following problems :
    
      - CVE-2009-2846
        Michael Buesch noticed a typing issue in the eisa-eeprom
        driver for the hppa architecture. Local users could
        exploit this issue to gain access to restricted memory.
    
      - CVE-2009-2847
        Ulrich Drepper noticed an issue in the do_sigalstack
        routine on 64-bit systems. This issue allows local users
        to gain access to potentially sensitive memory on the
        kernel stack.
    
      - CVE-2009-2848
        Eric Dumazet discovered an issue in the execve path,
        where the clear_child_tid variable was not being
        properly cleared. Local users could exploit this issue
        to cause a denial of service (memory corruption).
    
      - CVE-2009-2849
        Neil Brown discovered an issue in the sysfs interface to
        md devices. When md arrays are not active, local users
        can exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of
        service (oops).
    
      - CVE-2009-2903
        Mark Smith discovered a memory leak in the appletalk
        implementation. When the appletalk and ipddp modules are
        loaded, but no ipddp'N' device is found, remote
        attackers can cause a denial of service by consuming
        large amounts of system memory.
    
      - CVE-2009-2908
        Loic Minier discovered an issue in the eCryptfs
        filesystem. A local user can cause a denial of service
        (kernel oops) by causing a dentry value to go negative.
    
      - CVE-2009-2909
        Arjan van de Ven discovered an issue in the AX.25
        protocol implementation. A specially crafted call to
        setsockopt() can result in a denial of service (kernel
        oops).
    
      - CVE-2009-2910
        Jan Beulich discovered the existence of a sensitive
        kernel memory leak. Systems running the 'amd64' kernel
        do not properly sanitize registers for 32-bit processes.
    
      - CVE-2009-3001
        Jiri Slaby fixed a sensitive memory leak issue in the
        ANSI/IEEE 802.2 LLC implementation. This is not
        exploitable in the Debian lenny kernel as root
        privileges are required to exploit this issue.
    
      - CVE-2009-3002
        Eric Dumazet fixed several sensitive memory leaks in the
        IrDA, X.25 PLP (Rose), NET/ROM, Acorn Econet/AUN, and
        Controller Area Network (CAN) implementations. Local
        users can exploit these issues to gain access to kernel
        memory.
    
      - CVE-2009-3228
        Eric Dumazet reported an instance of uninitialized
        kernel memory in the network packet scheduler. Local
        users may be able to exploit this issue to read the
        contents of sensitive kernel memory.
    
      - CVE-2009-3238
        Linus Torvalds provided a change to the get_random_int()
        function to increase its randomness.
    
      - CVE-2009-3286
        Eric Paris discovered an issue with the NFSv4 server
        implementation. When an O_EXCL create fails, files may
        be left with corrupted permissions, possibly granting
        unintentional privileges to other local users.
    
      - CVE-2009-3547
        Earl Chew discovered a NULL pointer dereference issue in
        the pipe_rdwr_open function which can be used by local
        users to gain elevated privileges.
    
      - CVE-2009-3612
        Jiri Pirko discovered a typo in the initialization of a
        structure in the netlink subsystem that may allow local
        users to gain access to sensitive kernel memory.
    
      - CVE-2009-3613
        Alistair Strachan reported an issue in the r8169 driver.
        Remote users can cause a denial of service (IOMMU space
        exhaustion and system crash) by transmitting a large
        amount of jumbo frames.
    
      - CVE-2009-3620
        Ben Hutchings discovered an issue in the DRM manager for
        ATI Rage 128 graphics adapters. Local users may be able
        to exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of
        service (NULL pointer dereference).
    
      - CVE-2009-3621
        Tomoki Sekiyama discovered a deadlock condition in the
        UNIX domain socket implementation. Local users can
        exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service
        (system hang)."

    For the oldstable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.6.24-6~etchnhalf.9etch1.
    
    Note: Debian 'etch' includes linux kernel packages based upon both the
    2.6.18 and 2.6.24 linux releases. All known security issues are
    carefully tracked against both packages and both packages will receive
    security updates until security support for Debian 'etch' concludes.
    However, given the high frequency at which low-severity security
    issues are discovered in the kernel and the resource requirements of
    doing an update, lower severity 2.6.18 and 2.6.24 updates will
    typically release in a staggered or 'leap-frog' fashion."

    b. ESXi userworld update for ntp
    
       The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize the time of
       a computer client or server to another server or reference time
       source.
    
       A vulnerability in ntpd could allow a remote attacker to cause a
       denial of service (CPU and bandwidth consumption) by using
       MODE_PRIVATE to send a spoofed (1) request or (2) response packet
       that triggers a continuous exchange of MODE_PRIVATE error responses
       between two NTP daemons.
    
       The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org)
       has assigned the name CVE-2009-3563 to this issue.
    
    c. Service Console package openssl updated to 0.9.8e-12.el5_4.1
    
       OpenSSL is a toolkit implementing SSL v2/v3 and TLS protocols with
       full-strength cryptography world-wide.
    
       A memory leak in the zlib could allow a remote attacker to cause a
       denial of service (memory consumption) via vectors that trigger
       incorrect calls to the CRYPTO_cleanup_all_ex_data function.
    
       The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org)
       has assigned the name CVE-2009-4355 to this issue.
    
       A vulnerability was discovered which may allow remote attackers to
       spoof certificates by using MD2 design flaws to generate a hash
       collision in less than brute-force time. NOTE: the scope of this
       issue is currently limited because the amount of computation
       required is still large.
    
       The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org)
       has assigned the name CVE-2009-2409 to this issue.
    
       This update also includes security fixes that were first addressed
       in version openssl-0.9.8e-12.el5.i386.rpm.
    
       The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org)
       has assigned the names CVE-2009-0590, CVE-2009-1377, CVE-2009-1378,
       CVE-2009-1379, CVE-2009-1386 and CVE-2009-1387 to these issues.
    
    d. Service Console update for krb5 to 1.6.1-36.el5_4.1 and pam_krb5 to
       2.2.14-15.
    
       Kerberos is a network authentication protocol. It is designed to
       provide strong authentication for client/server applications by
       using secret-key cryptography.
    
       Multiple integer underflows in the AES and RC4 functionality in the
       crypto library could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of
       service (daemon crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code by
       providing ciphertext with a length that is too short to be valid.
    
       The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org)
       has assigned the name CVE-2009-4212 to this issue.
    
       The service console package for pam_krb5 is updated to version
       pam_krb5-2.2.14-15. This update fixes a flaw found in pam_krb5. In
       some non-default configurations (specifically, where pam_krb5 would
       be the first module to prompt for a password), a remote attacker
       could use this flaw to recognize valid usernames, which would aid a
       dictionary-based password guess attack.
    
       The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org)
       has assigned the name CVE-2009-1384 to this issue.
    
    e. Service Console package bind updated to 9.3.6-4.P1.el5_4.2
    
       BIND (Berkeley Internet Name Daemon) is by far the most widely used
       Domain Name System (DNS) software on the Internet.
    
       A vulnerability was discovered which could allow remote attacker to
       add the Authenticated Data (AD) flag to a forged NXDOMAIN response
       for an existing domain.
    
       The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org)
       has assigned the name CVE-2010-0097 to this issue.
    
       A vulnerability was discovered which could allow remote attackers
       to conduct DNS cache poisoning attacks by receiving a recursive
       client query and sending a response that contains CNAME or DNAME
       records, which do not have the intended validation before caching.
    
       The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org)
       has assigned the name CVE-2010-0290 to this issue.
    
       A vulnerability was found in the way that bind handles out-of-
       bailiwick data accompanying a secure response without re-fetching
       from the original source, which could allow remote attackers to
       have an unspecified impact via a crafted response.
    
       The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org)
       has assigned the name CVE-2010-0382 to this issue.
    
       NOTE: ESX does not use the BIND name service daemon by default.
    
    f. Service Console package gcc updated to 3.2.3-60
    
       The GNU Compiler Collection includes front ends for C, C++,
       Objective-C, Fortran, Java, and Ada, as well as libraries for these
       languages
    
       GNU Libtool's ltdl.c attempts to open .la library files in the
       current working directory.  This could allow a local user to gain
       privileges via a Trojan horse file.  The GNU C Compiler collection
       (gcc) provided in ESX contains a statically linked version of the
       vulnerable code, and is being replaced.
    
       The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org)
       has assigned the name CVE-2009-3736 to this issue.
    
    g. Service Console package gzip update to 1.3.3-15.rhel3
    
       gzip is a software application used for file compression
    
       An integer underflow in gzip's unlzw function on 64-bit platforms
       may allow a remote attacker to trigger an array index error
       leading to a denial of service (application crash) or possibly
       execute arbitrary code via a crafted LZW compressed file.
    
       The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org)
       has assigned the name CVE-2010-0001 to this issue.
    
    h. Service Console package sudo updated to 1.6.9p17-6.el5_4
    
       Sudo (su 'do') allows a system administrator to delegate authority
       to give certain users (or groups of users) the ability to run some
       (or all) commands as root or another user while providing an audit
       trail of the commands and their arguments.
    
       When a pseudo-command is enabled, sudo permits a match between the
       name of the pseudo-command and the name of an executable file in an
       arbitrary directory, which allows local users to gain privileges
       via a crafted executable file.
    
       The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org)
       has assigned the name CVE-2010-0426 to this issue.
    
       When the runas_default option is used, sudo does not properly set
       group memberships, which allows local users to gain privileges via
       a sudo command.
    
       The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org)
       has assigned the name CVE-2010-0427 to this issue."

  • NASL familyCentOS Local Security Checks
    NASL idCENTOS_RHSA-2009-1671.NASL
    descriptionUpdated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several 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 fixes the following security issues : * a flaw was found in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel. pci_unmap_single() presented a memory leak that could lead to IOMMU space exhaustion and a system crash. An attacker on the local network could trigger this flaw by using jumbo frames for large amounts of network traffic. (CVE-2009-3613, Important) * NULL pointer dereference flaws were found in the r128 driver in the Linux kernel. Checks to test if the Concurrent Command Engine state was initialized were missing in private IOCTL functions. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a local denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2009-3620, Important) * an information leak was found in the Linux kernel. On AMD64 systems, 32-bit processes could access and read certain 64-bit registers by temporarily switching themselves to 64-bit mode. (CVE-2009-2910, Moderate) * the unix_stream_connect() function in the Linux kernel did not check if a UNIX domain socket was in the shutdown state. This could lead to a deadlock. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2009-3621, Moderate) This update also fixes the following bugs : * an iptables rule with the recent module and a hit count value greater than the ip_pkt_list_tot parameter (the default is 20), did not have any effect over packets, as the hit count could not be reached. (BZ#529306) * in environments that use dual-controller storage devices with the cciss driver, Device-Mapper Multipath maps could not be detected and configured, due to the cciss driver not exporting the bus attribute via sysfs. This attribute is now exported. (BZ#529309) * the kernel crashed with a divide error when a certain joystick was attached.

    NASL idORACLELINUX_ELSA-2009-1550.NASL
    descriptionFrom Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1550 : Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues and multiple 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. Security fixes : * 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 denial of service issue. (CVE-2008-5029, Important) * 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) * the exit_notify() function in the Linux kernel did not properly reset the exit signal if a process executed a set user ID (setuid) application before exiting. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to elevate their privileges. (CVE-2009-1337, Important) * a flaw was found in the Intel PRO/1000 network driver in the Linux kernel. Frames with sizes near the MTU of an interface may be split across multiple hardware receive descriptors. Receipt of such a frame could leak through a validation check, leading to a corruption of the length check. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted packet that would cause a denial of service or code execution. (CVE-2009-1385, Important) * the ADDR_COMPAT_LAYOUT and MMAP_PAGE_ZERO flags were not cleared when a setuid or setgid program was executed. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to bypass the mmap_min_addr protection mechanism and perform a NULL pointer dereference attack, or bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) security feature. (CVE-2009-1895, Important) * it was discovered that, when executing a new process, the clear_child_tid pointer in the Linux kernel is not cleared. If this pointer points to a writable portion of the memory of the new program, the kernel could corrupt four bytes of memory, possibly leading to a local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-2848, Important) * missing initialization flaws were found in getname() implementations in the IrDA sockets, AppleTalk DDP protocol, NET/ROM protocol, and ROSE protocol implementations in the Linux kernel. Certain data structures in these getname() implementations were not initialized properly before being copied to user-space. These flaws could lead to an information leak. (CVE-2009-3002, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in each of the following functions in the Linux kernel: pipe_read_open(), pipe_write_open(), and pipe_rdwr_open(). When the mutex lock is not held, the i_pipe pointer could be released by other processes before it is used to update the pipe

    descriptionFrom Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1671 : Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several 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 fixes the following security issues : * a flaw was found in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel. pci_unmap_single() presented a memory leak that could lead to IOMMU space exhaustion and a system crash. An attacker on the local network could trigger this flaw by using jumbo frames for large amounts of network traffic. (CVE-2009-3613, Important) * NULL pointer dereference flaws were found in the r128 driver in the Linux kernel. Checks to test if the Concurrent Command Engine state was initialized were missing in private IOCTL functions. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a local denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2009-3620, Important) * an information leak was found in the Linux kernel. On AMD64 systems, 32-bit processes could access and read certain 64-bit registers by temporarily switching themselves to 64-bit mode. (CVE-2009-2910, Moderate) * the unix_stream_connect() function in the Linux kernel did not check if a UNIX domain socket was in the shutdown state. This could lead to a deadlock. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2009-3621, Moderate) This update also fixes the following bugs : * an iptables rule with the recent module and a hit count value greater than the ip_pkt_list_tot parameter (the default is 20), did not have any effect over packets, as the hit count could not be reached. (BZ#529306) * in environments that use dual-controller storage devices with the cciss driver, Device-Mapper Multipath maps could not be detected and configured, due to the cciss driver not exporting the bus attribute via sysfs. This attribute is now exported. (BZ#529309) * the kernel crashed with a divide error when a certain joystick was attached. (BZ#532027) * a bug in the mptctl_do_mpt_command() function in the mpt driver may have resulted in crashes during boot on i386 systems with certain adapters using the mpt driver, and also running the hugemem kernel.

    NASL idCENTOS_RHSA-2009-1550.NASL
    descriptionUpdated kernel packages that fix several security issues and multiple 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. Security fixes : * 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 denial of service issue. (CVE-2008-5029, Important) * 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) * the exit_notify() function in the Linux kernel did not properly reset the exit signal if a process executed a set user ID (setuid) application before exiting. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to elevate their privileges. (CVE-2009-1337, Important) * a flaw was found in the Intel PRO/1000 network driver in the Linux kernel. Frames with sizes near the MTU of an interface may be split across multiple hardware receive descriptors. Receipt of such a frame could leak through a validation check, leading to a corruption of the length check. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted packet that would cause a denial of service or code execution. (CVE-2009-1385, Important) * the ADDR_COMPAT_LAYOUT and MMAP_PAGE_ZERO flags were not cleared when a setuid or setgid program was executed. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to bypass the mmap_min_addr protection mechanism and perform a NULL pointer dereference attack, or bypass the Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) security feature. (CVE-2009-1895, Important) * it was discovered that, when executing a new process, the clear_child_tid pointer in the Linux kernel is not cleared. If this pointer points to a writable portion of the memory of the new program, the kernel could corrupt four bytes of memory, possibly leading to a local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-2848, Important) * missing initialization flaws were found in getname() implementations in the IrDA sockets, AppleTalk DDP protocol, NET/ROM protocol, and ROSE protocol implementations in the Linux kernel. Certain data structures in these getname() implementations were not initialized properly before being copied to user-space. These flaws could lead to an information leak. (CVE-2009-3002, Important) * a NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in each of the following functions in the Linux kernel: pipe_read_open(), pipe_write_open(), and pipe_rdwr_open(). When the mutex lock is not held, the i_pipe pointer could be released by other processes before it is used to update the pipe

    descriptionUpdated kernel packages that fix multiple 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 : * an array index error was found in the gdth driver. A local user could send a specially crafted IOCTL request that would cause a denial of service or, possibly, privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-3080, Important) * a flaw was found in the FUSE implementation. When a system is low on memory, fuse_put_request() could dereference an invalid pointer, possibly leading to a local denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-4021, Important) * Tavis Ormandy discovered a deficiency in the fasync_helper() implementation. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to leverage a use-after-free of locked, asynchronous file descriptors to cause a denial of service or privilege escalation. (CVE-2009-4141, Important) * the Parallels Virtuozzo Containers team reported the RHSA-2009:1243 update introduced two flaws in the routing implementation. If an attacker was able to cause a large enough number of collisions in the routing hash table (via specially crafted packets) for the emergency route flush to trigger, a deadlock could occur. Secondly, if the kernel routing cache was disabled, an uninitialized pointer would be left behind after a route lookup, leading to a kernel panic. (CVE-2009-4272, Important) * the RHSA-2009:0225 update introduced a rewrite attack flaw in the do_coredump() function. A local attacker able to guess the file name a process is going to dump its core to, prior to the process crashing, could use this flaw to append data to the dumped core file. This issue only affects systems that have

  • NASL familyScientific Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL idSL_20091215_KERNEL_ON_SL4_X.NASL
    descriptionThis update fixes the following security issues : - a flaw was found in the Realtek r8169 Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel. pci_unmap_single() presented a memory leak that could lead to IOMMU space exhaustion and a system crash. An attacker on the local network could trigger this flaw by using jumbo frames for large amounts of network traffic. (CVE-2009-3613, Important) - NULL pointer dereference flaws were found in the r128 driver in the Linux kernel. Checks to test if the Concurrent Command Engine state was initialized were missing in private IOCTL functions. An attacker could use these flaws to cause a local denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2009-3620, Important) - an information leak was found in the Linux kernel. On AMD64 systems, 32-bit processes could access and read certain 64-bit registers by temporarily switching themselves to 64-bit mode. (CVE-2009-2910, Moderate) - the unix_stream_connect() function in the Linux kernel did not check if a UNIX domain socket was in the shutdown state. This could lead to a deadlock. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2009-3621, Moderate) This update also fixes the following bugs : - an iptables rule with the recent module and a hit count value greater than the ip_pkt_list_tot parameter (the default is 20), did not have any effect over packets, as the hit count could not be reached. (BZ#529306) - in environments that use dual-controller storage devices with the cciss driver, Device-Mapper Multipath maps could not be detected and configured, due to the cciss driver not exporting the bus attribute via sysfs. This attribute is now exported. (BZ#529309) - the kernel crashed with a divide error when a certain joystick was attached. (BZ#532027) - a bug in the mptctl_do_mpt_command() function in the mpt driver may have resulted in crashes during boot on i386 systems with certain adapters using the mpt driver, and also running the hugemem kernel. (BZ#533798) - on certain hardware, the igb driver was unable to detect link statuses correctly. This may have caused problems for network bonding, such as failover not occurring. (BZ#534105) - the RHSA-2009:1024 update introduced a regression. After updating to Scientific Linux 4.8 and rebooting, network links often failed to be brought up for interfaces using the forcedeth driver.

  • NASL familySuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL idSUSE9_12541.NASL
    descriptionThis update fixes various security issues and some bugs in the SUSE Linux Enterprise 9 kernel. The following security bugs were fixed : - A race condition in the pipe(2) systemcall could be used by local attackers to execute code. (CVE-2009-3547) - On x86_64 systems a information leak of high register contents (upper 32bit) was fixed. (CVE-2009-2910) - 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 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) - Unsigned check in the ax25 socket handler could allow local attackers to potentially crash the kernel or even execute code. (CVE-2009-2909) - The execve function in the Linux kernel did not properly clear the current->clear_child_tid pointer, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly gain privileges via a clone system call with CLONE_CHILD_SETTID or CLONE_CHILD_CLEARTID enabled, which is not properly handled during thread creation and exit. (CVE-2009-2848) - Fixed various sockethandler getname leaks, which could disclose memory previously used by the kernel or other userland processes to the local attacker. (CVE-2009-3002) - Multiple buffer overflows in the cifs subsystem in the Linux kernel allow remote CIFS servers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) and possibly have unspecified other impact via (1) a malformed Unicode string, related to Unicode string area alignment in fs/cifs/sess.c; or (2) long Unicode characters, related to fs/cifs/cifssmb.c and the cifs_readdir function in fs/cifs/readdir.c. (CVE-2009-1633) - The nfs4_proc_lock function in fs/nfs/nfs4proc.c in the NFSv4 client in the 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.
