CVE-2011-1776

Status Candidate

Overview

The is_gpt_valid function in fs/partitions/efi.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.39 does not check the size of an Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) GUID Partition Table (GPT) entry, which allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow and OOPS) or obtain sensitive information from kernel heap memory by connecting a crafted GPT storage device, a different vulnerability than CVE-2011-1577.

Ubuntu Security Notice 1256-1 - It was discovered that the /proc filesystem did not correctly handle permission changes when programs executed. A local attacker could hold open files to examine details about programs running with higher privileges, potentially increasing the chances of exploiting additional vulnerabilities. Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that the Bluetooth stack did not correctly clear memory. A local attacker could exploit this to read kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 1228-1 - Timo Warns discovered that the EFI GUID partition table was not correctly parsed. A physically local attacker that could insert mountable devices could exploit this to crash the system or possibly gain root privileges. Dan Rosenberg discovered that the IPv4 diagnostic routines did not correctly validate certain requests. A local attacker could exploit this to consume CPU resources, leading to a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2011-1189-01
Posted Aug 24, 2011
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2011-1189-01 - Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues, various bugs, and add two enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Using PCI passthrough without interrupt remapping support allowed KVM guests to generate MSI interrupts and thus potentially inject traps. A privileged guest user could use this flaw to crash the host or possibly escalate their privileges on the host. The fix for this issue can prevent PCI passthrough working and guests starting. Flaw in the client-side NLM implementation could allow a local, unprivileged user to cause a denial of service.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2011-0927-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. An integer overflow flaw in ib_uverbs_poll_cq() could allow a local, unprivileged user to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges. A race condition in the way new InfiniBand connections were set up could allow a remote user to cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

Linux 2.4 / 2.6 Information Disclosure / Denial Of Service
Posted May 12, 2011
Authored by Timo Warns | Site pre-cert.de

PRE-CERT Security Advisory - The Linux kernel contains a vulnerability that may lead to an information disclosure or a denial-of-service due to corrupted partition tables on storage devices. The kernel automatically evaluates partition tables of storage devices. The code for evaluating EFI GUID partition tables contains a buffer overflow bug that allows to leak data from the kernel heap to userspace or that may allow to cause a kernel oops resulting in a denial of service.
