CVE-2012-5513

Status Candidate

Overview

The XENMEM_exchange handler in Xen 4.2 and earlier does not properly check the memory address, which allows local PV guest OS administrators to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly gain privileges via unspecified vectors that overwrite memory in the hypervisor reserved range.

Technical Information On Vulnerabilities Of Hypercall Handlers
Posted Sep 23, 2014
Authored by Samuel Kounev, Bryan D. Payne, Aleksandar Milenkoski, Nuno Antunes, Marco Vieira | Site research.spec.org

Modern virtualized service infrastructures expose attack vectors that enable attacks of high severity, such as attacks targeting hypervisors. A malicious user of a guest VM (virtual machine) may execute an attack against the underlying hypervisor via hypercalls, which are software traps from a kernel of a fully or partially paravirtualized guest VM to the hypervisor. The exploitation of a vulnerability of a hypercall handler may have severe consequences such as altering hypervisor's memory, which may result in the execution of malicious code with hypervisor privilege. Despite the importance of vulnerabilities of hypercall handlers, there is not much publicly available information on them. This significantly hinders advances towards securing hypercall interfaces. In this work, the researchers provide in-depth technical information on publicly disclosed vulnerabilities of hypercall handlers. Our vulnerability analysis is based on reverse engineering the released patches fixing the considered vulnerabilities. For each analyzed vulnerability, they provide background information essential for understanding the vulnerability, and information on the vulnerable hypercall handler and the error causing the vulnerability. The researchers also show how the vulnerability can be triggered and discuss the state of the targeted hypervisor after the vulnerability has been triggered.

Debian Security Advisory 2582-1
Posted Dec 7, 2012
Authored by Debian | Site debian.org

Debian Linux Security Advisory 2582-1 - Multiple denial of service vulnerabilities have been discovered in the xen hypervisor. One of the issues (CVE-2012-5513) could even lead to privilege escalation from guest to host.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-1540-01
Posted Dec 4, 2012
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-1540-01 - These packages contain the Linux kernel. A race condition in the way asynchronous I/O and fallocate() interacted when using ext4 could allow a local, unprivileged user to obtain random data from a deleted file. A flaw in the way the Xen hypervisor implementation range checked guest provided addresses in the XENMEM_exchange hypercall could allow a malicious, para-virtualized guest administrator to crash the hypervisor or, potentially, escalate their privileges, allowing them to execute arbitrary code at the hypervisor level.
