Red Hat Security Advisory 2020-3273-01 - The grub2 packages provide version 2 of the Grand Unified Boot Loader, a highly configurable and customizable boot loader with modular architecture. The packages support a variety of kernel formats, file systems, computer architectures, and hardware devices. The shim package contains a first-stage UEFI boot loader that handles chaining to a trusted full boot loader under secure boot environments. Issues addressed include buffer overflow, code execution, integer overflow, and use-after-free vulnerabilities.

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

1. Summary:

An update for grub2, shim, and shim-signed is now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7.2 Advanced Update Support.

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:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server AUS (v. 7.2) - noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional AUS (v. 7.2) - noarch, x86_64

3. Description:

The grub2 packages provide version 2 of the Grand Unified Boot Loader
(GRUB), a highly configurable and customizable boot loader with modular
architecture. The packages support a variety of kernel formats, file
systems, computer architectures, and hardware devices.

The shim package contains a first-stage UEFI boot loader that handles
chaining to a trusted full boot loader under secure boot environments.

Security Fix(es):

* grub2: Crafted grub.cfg file can lead to arbitrary code execution during
boot process (CVE-2020-10713)

* grub2: grub_malloc does not validate allocation size allowing for
arithmetic overflow and subsequent heap-based buffer overflow
(CVE-2020-14308)

* grub2: Integer overflow in grub_squash_read_symlink may lead to
heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2020-14309)

* grub2: Integer overflow read_section_as_string may lead to heap-based
buffer overflow (CVE-2020-14310)

* grub2: Integer overflow in grub_ext2_read_link leads to heap-based buffer
overflow (CVE-2020-14311)

* grub2: Fail kernel validation without shim protocol (CVE-2020-15705)

* grub2: Use-after-free redefining a function whilst the same function is
already executing (CVE-2020-15706)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS
score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE
page(s) listed in the References section.

Bug Fix(es):

* grub2 should get resynced with 7.8 branch (BZ#1861861)
