CVE-2014-8160

Status Candidate

Overview

A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's netfilter subsystem handled generic protocol tracking. As demonstrated in the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) case, a remote attacker could use this flaw to bypass intended iptables rule restrictions when the associated connection tracking module was not loaded on the system.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2015-058

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2015-058 - Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in the Linux kernel. The Crypto API in the Linux kernel before 3.18.5 allows local users to load arbitrary kernel modules via a bind system call for an AF_ALG socket with a module name in the salg_name field, a different vulnerability than CVE-2014-9644. arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.17.2 on Intel processors does not ensure that the value in the CR4 control register remains the same after a VM entry, which allows host OS users to kill arbitrary processes or cause a denial of service by leveraging /dev/kvm access, as demonstrated by PR_SET_TSC prctl calls within a modified copy of QEMU. Various other issues have also been addressed. The updated packages provides a solution for these security issues.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2015-0674-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. It was found that the Linux kernel's Infiniband subsystem did not properly sanitize input parameters while registering memory regions from user space via the verbs API. A local user with access to a /dev/infiniband/uverbsX device could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's splice() system call validated its parameters. On certain file systems, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to write past the maximum file size, and thus crash the system.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2015-057 - The Crypto API in the Linux kernel before 3.18.5 allows local users to load arbitrary kernel modules via a bind system call for an AF_ALG socket with a parenthesized module template expression in the salg_name field, as demonstrated by the vfat expression, a different vulnerability than CVE-2013-7421. net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_proto_generic.c in the Linux kernel before 3.18 generates incorrect conntrack entries during handling of certain iptables rule sets for the SCTP, DCCP, GRE, and UDP-Lite protocols, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via packets with disallowed port numbers. The Crypto API in the Linux kernel before 3.18.5 allows local users to load arbitrary kernel modules via a bind system call for an AF_ALG socket with a module name in the salg_name field, a different vulnerability than CVE-2014-9644. The updated packages provides a solution for these security issues.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2015-0290-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's XFS file system handled replacing of remote attributes under certain conditions. A local user with access to XFS file system mount could potentially use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system. It was found that the Linux kernel's KVM implementation did not ensure that the host CR4 control register value remained unchanged across VM entries on the same virtual CPU. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause denial of service on the system.

Ubuntu Security Notice 2515-2 - USN-2515-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel. There was an unrelated regression in the use of the virtual counter (CNTVCT) on arm64 architectures. This update fixes the problem. A flaw was discovered in the Kernel Virtual Machine's (KVM) emulation of the SYSTENTER instruction when the guest OS does not initialize the SYSENTER MSRs. A guest OS user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service of the guest OS (crash) or potentially gain privileges on the guest OS. Various other issues were also addressed.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2015-0284-03 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. A race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's KVM subsystem handled PIT emulation. A guest user who has access to the PIT I/O ports could use this flaw to crash the host. A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's SCTP implementation validated INIT chunks when performing Address Configuration Change. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system by sending a specially crafted SCTP packet to trigger a NULL pointer dereference on the system.
