CVE-2009-1895

Status Candidate

Overview

The personality subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.31-rc3 has a PER_CLEAR_ON_SETID setting that does not clear the ADDR_COMPAT_LAYOUT and MMAP_PAGE_ZERO flags when executing a setuid or setgid program, which makes it easier for local users to leverage the details of memory usage to (1) conduct NULL pointer dereference attacks, (2) bypass the mmap_min_addr protection mechanism, or (3) defeat address space layout randomization (ASLR).

Ubuntu Security Notice 807-1
Posted Jul 29, 2009
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-807-1 - Michael Tokarev discovered that the RTL8169 network driver did not correctly validate buffer sizes. A remote attacker on the local network could send specially traffic traffic that would crash the system or potentially grant elevated privileges. Julien Tinnes and Tavis Ormandy discovered that when executing setuid processes the kernel did not clear certain personality flags. A local attacker could exploit this to map the NULL memory page, causing other vulnerabilities to become exploitable. Ubuntu 6.06 was not affected. Matt T. Yourst discovered that KVM did not correctly validate the page table root. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. Ubuntu 6.06 was not affected. Ramon de Carvalho Valle discovered that eCryptfs did not correctly validate certain buffer sizes. A local attacker could create specially crafted eCryptfs files to crash the system or gain elevated privileges. Ubuntu 6.06 was not affected.
