CVE-2007-3731

Status Candidate

Overview

The Linux kernel 2.6.20 and 2.6.21 does not properly handle an invalid LDT segment selector in %cs (the xcs field) during ptrace single-step operations, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL dereference and OOPS) via certain code that makes ptrace PTRACE_SETREGS and PTRACE_SINGLESTEP requests, related to the TRACE_IRQS_ON function, and possibly related to the arch_ptrace function.

Debian Security Advisory 1378-2 - Several local and remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code.

Debian Security Advisory 1378-1 - Several local and remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code. Evan Teran discovered a potential local denial of service (oops) in the handling of PTRACE_SETREGS and PTRACE_SINGLESTEP requests. Adam Litke reported a potential local denial of service (oops) on powerpc platforms resulting from unchecked VMA expansion into address space reserved for hugetlb pages. Steve French reported that CIFS filesystems with CAP_UNIX enabled were not honoring a process' umask which may lead to unintentionally relaxed permissions. Wojciech Purczynski discovered a vulnerability that can be exploited by a local user to obtain superuser privileges on x86_64 systems. This resulted from improper clearing of the high bits of registers during ia32 system call emulation. This vulnerability is relevant to the Debian amd64 port as well as users of the i386 port who run the amd64 linux-image flavor. Michael Stone reported an issue with the JFFS2 filesystem. Legacy modes for inodes that were created with POSIX ACL support enabled were not being written out to the medium, resulting in incorrect permissions upon remount.

Ubuntu Security Notice 518-1
Posted Sep 26, 2007
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 518-1 - Evan Teran discovered that the Linux kernel ptrace routines did not correctly handle certain requests robustly. Local attackers could exploit this to crash the system, causing a denial of service. It was discovered that hugetlb kernels on PowerPC systems did not prevent the stack from colliding with reserved kernel memory. Local attackers could exploit this and crash the system, causing a denial of service. It was discovered that certain CIFS filesystem actions did not honor the umask of a process. Local attackers could exploit this to gain additional privileges. Wojciech Purczynski discovered that the Linux kernel ia32 syscall emulation in x86_64 kernels did not correctly clear the high bits of registers. Local attackers could exploit this to gain root privileges.
