CVE-2016-3075

Status Candidate

Stack-based buffer overflow in the nss_dns implementation of the getnetbyname function in GNU C Library (aka glibc) before 2.24 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (stack consumption and application crash) via a long name.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-2573-02

Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-2573-02 - The glibc packages provide the standard C libraries, POSIX thread libraries, standard math libraries, and the name service cache daemon used by multiple programs on the system. Without these libraries, the Linux system cannot function correctly. Security Fix: A stack overflow vulnerability was found in _nss_dns_getnetbyname_r. On systems with nsswitch configured to include "networks: dns" with a privileged or network-facing service that would attempt to resolve user-provided network names, an attacker could provide an excessively long network name, resulting in stack corruption and code execution.

Ubuntu Security Notice 2985-1 - Martin Carpenter discovered that pt_chown in the GNU C Library did not properly check permissions for tty files. A local attacker could use this to gain administrative privileges or expose sensitive information. Robin Hack discovered that the Name Service Switch (NSS) implementation in the GNU C Library did not properly manage its file descriptors. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (infinite loop). Various other issues were also addressed.
