Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-1285-01
Posted May 26, 2017
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-1285-01 - collectd is a small C-language daemon, which reads various system metrics periodically and updates RRD files. Because the daemon does not start up each time it updates files, it has a low system footprint. The following packages have been upgraded to a newer upstream version: collectd. Security Fix: collectd contains an infinite loop due to how the parse_packet() and parse_part_sign_sha256() functions interact. If an instance of collectd is configured with "SecurityLevel None" and with empty "AuthFile" options an attacker can send crafted UDP packets that trigger the infinite loop, causing a denial of service.

Issue date: 2017-05-24

=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for collectd is now available for RHEV 4.X RHEV-H and Agents for
RHEL-7 and RHEV Engine version 4.1.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from
the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Managment Agent for RHEL 7 Hosts - ppc64le, x86_64
RHV-M 4.1 - x86_64

3. Description:

collectd is a small C-language daemon, which reads various system metrics
periodically and updates RRD files (creating them if necessary). Because
the daemon does not start up each time it updates files, it has a low
system footprint.

The following packages have been upgraded to a newer upstream version:
collectd (5.7.1). (BZ#1446472)

Security Fix(es):

* collectd contains an infinite loop due to how the parse_packet() and
parse_part_sign_sha256() functions interact. If an instance of collectd is
configured with "SecurityLevel None" and with empty "AuthFile" options an
attacker can send crafted UDP packets that trigger the infinite loop,
causing a denial of service. (CVE-2017-7401)

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:

https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258

5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

1439674 - CVE-2017-7401 collectd: Infinite loop due to incorrect interaction of parse_packet() and parse_part_sign_sha256() functions
1446472 - Upgrade collectd to 5.7.1
