CVE-2007-4573

Status Candidate

Overview

The IA32 system call emulation functionality in Linux kernel 2.4.x and 2.6.x before 2.6.22.7, when running on the x86_64 architecture, does not zero extend the eax register after the 32bit entry path to ptrace is used, which might allow local users to gain privileges by triggering an out-of-bounds access to the system call table using the %RAX register.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2007.196
Posted Oct 16, 2007

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory - The compat_sys_mount function in fs/compat.c allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and oops) by mounting a smbfs file system in compatibility mode. The nf_conntrack function in netfilter did not set nfctinfo during reassembly of fragmented packets, which left the default value as IP_CT_ESTABLISHED and could allow remote attackers to bypass certain rulesets using IPv6 fragments. A typo in the Linux kernel caused RTA_MAX to be used as an array size instead of RTN_MAX, which lead to an out of bounds access by certain functions. The IPv6 protocol allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service via crafted IPv6 type 0 route headers that create network amplification between two routers. The random number feature did not properly seed pools when there was no entropy, or used an incorrect cast when extracting entropy, which could cause the random number generator to provide the same values after reboots on systems without an entropy source. A memory leak in the PPPoE socket implementation allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by creating a socket using connect, and releasing it before the PPPIOCGCHAN ioctl is initialized. An integer underflow in the cpuset_tasks_read function, when the cpuset filesystem is mounted, allowed local users to obtain kernel memory contents by using a large offset when reading the /dev/cpuset/tasks file. The sctp_new function in netfilter allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service by causing certain invalid states that triggered a NULL pointer dereference. A stack-based buffer overflow in the random number generator could allow local root users to cause a denial of service or gain privileges by setting the default wakeup threshold to a value greater than the output pool size. The lcd_write function did not limit the amount of memory used by a caller, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption). The Linux kernel allowed local users to send arbitrary signals to a child process that is running at higher privileges by causing a setuid-root parent process to die which delivered an attacker-controlled parent process death signal (PR_SET_PDEATHSIG). The aac_cfg_openm and aac_compat_ioctl functions in the SCSI layer ioctl patch in aacraid did not check permissions for ioctls, which might allow local users to cause a denial of service or gain privileges. The IA32 system call emulation functionality, when running on the x86_64 architecture, did not zero extend the eax register after the 32bit entry path to ptrace is used, which could allow local users to gain privileges by triggering an out-of-bounds access to the system call table using the %RAX register.

The lcd_write function did not limit the amount of memory used by a caller, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption).

Debian Security Advisory 1381-2 - Several local vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code. This is an update to DSA-1381-1 which included only amd64 binaries for linux-2.6. Builds for all other architectures are now available, as well as rebuilds of ancillary packages that make use of the included linux source.

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 - 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.
