CVE-2010-4258

Status Candidate

Overview

The do_exit function in kernel/exit.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36.2 does not properly handle a KERNEL_DS get_fs value, which allows local users to bypass intended access_ok restrictions, overwrite arbitrary kernel memory locations, and gain privileges by leveraging a (1) BUG, (2) NULL pointer dereference, or (3) page fault, as demonstrated by vectors involving the clear_child_tid feature and the splice system call.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-1167-1
Posted Jul 14, 2011
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

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.

Linux Kernel 2.6.37 Local Privilege Escalation
Posted Dec 8, 2010
Authored by Dan Rosenberg

Linux kernel local privilege escalation exploit for versions 2.6.37 and below. It leverages three separate vulnerabilities to achieve root including a NULL pointer dereference, being able to assign arbitrary Econet addresses to arbitrary interfaces, and the ability to write a NULL word to an arbitrary kernel address.
