CVE-2011-2942

Status Candidate

Overview

A certain Red Hat patch to the __br_deliver function in net/bridge/br_forward.c in the Linux kernel 2.6.18 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging connectivity to a network interface that uses an Ethernet bridge device.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-1294-1
Posted Dec 8, 2011

Ubuntu Security Notice 1294-1 - Peter Huewe discovered an information leak in the handling of reading security-related TPM data. A local, unprivileged user could read the results of a previous TPM command. Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that taskstats did not enforce access restrictions. A local attacker could exploit this to read certain information, leading to a loss of privacy. Qianfeng Zhang discovered that the bridge networking interface incorrectly handled certain network packets. A remote attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2011-1408-01

Red Hat Security Advisory 2011-1408-01 - An updated rhev-hypervisor package that fixes several security issues is now available. The RHBA-2011:1254 update introduced a regression in the Linux kernel's Ethernet bridge implementation. If a system had an interface in a bridge, and an attacker on the local network could send packets to that interface, they could cause a denial of service on that system. A flaw in the Linux kernel could lead to GRO (Generic Receive Offload) fields being left in an inconsistent state. An attacker on the local network could use this flaw to trigger a denial of service. GRO is enabled by default in all network drivers that support it. Various other issues have also been addressed.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2011-1386-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. The maximum file offset handling for ext4 file systems could allow a local, unprivileged user to cause a denial of service. IPv6 fragment identification value generation could allow a remote attacker to disrupt a target system's networking, preventing legitimate users from accessing its services. Various other issues in the kernel have also been addressed.
