CVE-2012-3375

Status Candidate

Overview

The epoll_ctl system call in fs/eventpoll.c in the Linux kernel before 3.2.24 does not properly handle ELOOP errors in EPOLL_CTL_ADD operations, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (file-descriptor consumption and system crash) via a crafted application that attempts to create a circular epoll dependency. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2011-1083.

Ubuntu Security Notice 1539-1 - An error was discovered in the Linux kernel's network TUN/TAP device implementation. A local user with access to the TUN/TAP interface (which is not available to unprivileged users until granted by a root user) could exploit this flaw to crash the system or potential gain administrative privileges. Ulrich Obergfell discovered an error in the Linux kernel's memory management subsystem on 32 bit PAE systems with more than 4GB of memory installed. A local unprivileged user could exploit this flaw to crash the system. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 1529-1 - A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel's macvtap device driver, which is used in KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) to create a network bridge between host and guest. A privileged user in a guest could exploit this flaw to crash the host, if the vhost_net module is loaded with the experimental_zcopytx option enabled. An error was discovered in the Linux kernel's network TUN/TAP device implementation. A local user with access to the TUN/TAP interface (which is not available to unprivileged users until granted by a root user) could exploit this flaw to crash the system or potential gain administrative privileges.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-1150-01 - The kernel-rt packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. A memory leak flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's memory subsystem handled resource clean up in the mmap() failure path when the MAP_HUGETLB flag was set. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Event Poll subsystem handled resource clean up when an ELOOP error code was returned. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service.
