CVE-2010-4165

Status Candidate

Overview

The do_tcp_setsockopt function in net/ipv4/tcp.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.37-rc2 does not properly restrict TCP_MAXSEG (aka MSS) values, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) via a setsockopt call that specifies a small value, leading to a divide-by-zero error or incorrect use of a signed integer.

Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 1186-1 - Dan Rosenberg discovered that IPC structures were not correctly initialized on 64bit systems. A local attacker could exploit this to read kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy. Steve Chen discovered that setsockopt did not correctly check MSS values. A local attacker could make a specially crafted socket call to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. Vladymyr Denysov discovered that Xen virtual CD-ROM devices were not handled correctly. A local attacker in a guest could make crafted blkback requests that would crash the host, leading to a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 1167-1 - Dan Rosenberg discovered that the Linux kernel TIPC implementation contained multiple integer signedness errors. A local attacker could exploit this to gain root privileges. Dan Rosenberg discovered that the CAN protocol on 64bit systems did not correctly calculate the size of certain buffers. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system or possibly execute arbitrary code as the root user. Various other issues were also addressed.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2011-029
Posted Feb 18, 2011
Authored by Mandriva | Site mandriva.com

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2011-029 - Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered and fixed in the Linux 2.6 kernel. The X.25 implementation does not properly parse facilities, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption and panic) or possibly have unspecified other impact via malformed data, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-4164. The bcm_connect function Broadcast Manager in the Controller Area Network implementation in the Linux creates a publicly accessible file with a filename containing a kernel memory address, which allows local users to obtain potentially sensitive information about kernel memory use by listing this filename. The install_special_mapping function in mm/mmap.c does not make an expected security_file_mmap function call, which allows local users to bypass intended mmap_min_addr restrictions and possibly conduct NULL pointer dereference attacks via a crafted assembly-language application. Various other issues have also been addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-1054-1
Posted Feb 2, 2011
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 1054-1 - Gleb Napatov discovered that KVM did not correctly check certain privileged operations. A local attacker with access to a guest kernel could exploit this to crash the host system, leading to a denial of service. Steve Chen discovered that setsockopt did not correctly check MSS values. A local attacker could make a specially crafted socket call to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. Dave Jones discovered that the mprotect system call did not correctly handle merged VMAs. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. Vegard Nossum discovered that memory garbage collection was not handled correctly for active sockets. A local attacker could exploit this to allocate all available kernel memory, leading to a denial of service.
