Kernel Live Patch Security Notice LSN-0031-1
Posted Oct 11, 2017
Authored by Benjamin M. Romer

net/xfrm/xfrm_policy.c in the Linux kernel through 4.12.3, when CONFIG_XFRM_MIGRATE is enabled, does not ensure that the dir value of xfrm_userpolicy_id is XFRM_POLICY_MAX or less, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via an XFRM_MSG_MIGRATE xfrm Netlink message. Andrey Konovalov discovered that a divide-by-zero error existed in the TCP stack implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).

linux vulnerability
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu:

| Series | Base kernel | Arch | flavors |
|------------------+--------------+----------+------------------|
| Ubuntu 16.04 LTS | 4.4.0 | amd64 | generic |
| Ubuntu 16.04 LTS | 4.4.0 | amd64 | lowlatency |
| Ubuntu 14.04 LTS | 4.4.0 | amd64 | generic |
| Ubuntu 14.04 LTS | 4.4.0 | amd64 | lowlatency |

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel

Details:

net/xfrm/xfrm_policy.c in the Linux kernel through 4.12.3, when
CONFIG_XFRM_MIGRATE is enabled, does not ensure that the dir value of
xfrm_userpolicy_id is XFRM_POLICY_MAX or less, which allows local users to
cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds access) or possibly have unspecified
other impact via an XFRM_MSG_MIGRATE xfrm Netlink message. (CVE-2017-11600)

Andrey Konovalov discovered that a divide-by-zero error existed in the TCP
stack implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this
to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2017-14106)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your livepatches to the following
versions:
