CVE-2011-1082

Status Candidate

Overview

fs/eventpoll.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.38 places epoll file descriptors within other epoll data structures without properly checking for (1) closed loops or (2) deep chains, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (deadlock or stack memory consumption) via a crafted application that makes epoll_create and epoll_ctl system calls.

Ubuntu Security Notice 1204-1 - 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 multiple terminal ioctls did not correctly initialize structure memory. A local attacker could exploit this to read portions of kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 1160-1 - Dan Rosenberg discovered that IRDA did not correctly check the size of buffers. On non-x86 systems, a local attacker could exploit this to read kernel heap memory, leading to a loss of privacy. Dan Rosenburg discovered that the CAN subsystem leaked kernel addresses into the /proc filesystem. A local attacker could use this to increase the chances of a successful memory corruption exploit. Kees Cook discovered that the IOWarrior USB device driver did not correctly check certain size fields. A local attacker with physical access could plug in a specially crafted USB device to crash the system or potentially gain root privileges. Various other issues were also addressed.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2011-0883-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. This update includes backported fixes for security issues. These issues, except for CVE-2011-1182, only affected users of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 Extended Update Support as they have already been addressed for users of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 in the 6.1 update, RHSA-2011:0542. Security fixes: Buffer overflow flaws were found in the Linux kernel's Management Module Support for Message Passing Technology based controllers. A local, unprivileged user could use these flaws to cause a denial of service, an information leak, or escalate their privileges. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 1141-1 - Brad Spengler discovered that the kernel did not correctly account for userspace memory allocations during exec() calls. A local attacker could exploit this to consume all system memory, leading to a denial of service. Alexander Duyck discovered that the Intel Gigabit Ethernet driver did not correctly handle certain configurations. If such a device was configured without VLANs, a remote attacker could crash the system, leading to a denial of service. Various other issues were also discovered.
