CVE-2016-10208

Status Candidate

Overview

The ext4_fill_super function in fs/ext4/super.c in the Linux kernel through 4.9.8 does not properly validate meta block groups, which allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and system crash) via a crafted ext4 image.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3754-1 - Ralf Spenneberg discovered that the ext4 implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate meta block groups. An attacker with physical access could use this to specially craft an ext4 image that causes a denial of service. It was discovered that an information disclosure vulnerability existed in the ACPI implementation of the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3361-1 - USN-3358-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel for Ubuntu 17.04. This update provides the corresponding updates for the Linux Hardware Enablement kernel from Ubuntu 17.04 for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Please note that this update changes the Linux HWE kernel to the 4.10 based kernel from Ubuntu 17.04, superseding the 4.8 based HWE kernel from Ubuntu 16.10. Ben Harris discovered that the Linux kernel would strip extended privilege attributes of files when performing a failed unprivileged system call. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-1298-01

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-1298-01 - The kernel-rt packages provide the Real Time Linux Kernel, which enables fine-tuning for systems with extremely high determinism requirements. Security Fix: It was found that the packet_set_ring() function of the Linux kernel's networking implementation did not properly validate certain block-size data. A local attacker with CAP_NET_RAW capability could use this flaw to trigger a buffer overflow, resulting in the crash of the system. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out.

An attacker with physical access could use this to specially craft an ext4 image that causes a denial of service. It was discovered that the Linux kernel did not clear the setgid bit during a setxattr call on a tmpfs filesystem. A local attacker could use this to gain elevated group privileges. Various other issues were also addressed.
