CVE-2010-4238

Status Candidate

Overview

The vbd_create function in Xen 3.1.2, when the Linux kernel 2.6.18 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5 is used, allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS panic) via an attempted access to a virtual CD-ROM device through the blkback driver. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party information.

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.
