CVE-2014-0181

Status Candidate

Overview

The Netlink implementation in the Linux kernel through 3.14.1 does not provide a mechanism for authorizing socket operations based on the opener of a socket, which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions and modify network configurations by using a Netlink socket for the (1) stdout or (2) stderr of a setuid program.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2014-1959-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. It was found that the permission checks performed by the Linux kernel when a netlink message was received were not sufficient. A local, unprivileged user could potentially bypass these restrictions by passing a netlink socket as stdout or stderr to a more privileged process and altering the output of this process.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2014-1392-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Stream Control Transmission Protocol implementation handled simultaneous connections between the same hosts. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system. An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Frame Buffer device implementation mapped kernel memory to user space via the mmap syscall. A local user able to access a frame buffer device file could possibly use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2337-1

Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 2337-1 - A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel virtual machine's (kvm) validation of interrupt requests (irq). A guest OS user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (host OS crash). Andy Lutomirski discovered a flaw in the authorization of netlink socket operations when a socket is passed to a process of more privilege. A local user could exploit this flaw to bypass access restrictions by having a privileged executable do something it was not intended to do. Various other issues were also addressed.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2014-1023-01
Posted Aug 7, 2014
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2014-1023-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. It was found that Linux kernel's ptrace subsystem did not properly sanitize the address-space-control bits when the program-status word was being set. On IBM S/390 systems, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to set address-space-control bits to the kernel space, and thus gain read and write access to kernel memory. It was found that the permission checks performed by the Linux kernel when a netlink message was received were not sufficient. A local, unprivileged user could potentially bypass these restrictions by passing a netlink socket as stdout or stderr to a more privileged process and altering the output of this process.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2014-0913-01 - The kernel-rt packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's futex subsystem handled the requeuing of certain Priority Inheritance futexes. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system. It was found that the Linux kernel's ptrace subsystem allowed a traced process' instruction pointer to be set to a non-canonical memory address without forcing the non-sysret code path when returning to user space. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system.
