CVE-2016-6213

Status Candidate

Overview

fs/namespace.c in the Linux kernel before 4.9 does not restrict how many mounts may exist in a mount namespace, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and deadlock) via MS_BIND mount system calls, as demonstrated by a loop that triggers exponential growth in the number of mounts.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-1842-01
Posted Aug 2, 2017

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-1842-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security Fix: An use-after-free flaw was found in the Linux kernel which enables a race condition in the L2TPv3 IP Encapsulation feature. A local user could use this flaw to escalate their privileges or crash the system. A flaw was found that can be triggered in keyring_search_iterator in keyring.c if type->match is NULL. A local user could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-2077-01 - The kernel-rt packages provide the Real Time Linux Kernel, which enables fine-tuning for systems with extremely high determinism requirements. Security Fix: An use-after-free flaw was found in the Linux kernel which enables a race condition in the L2TPv3 IP Encapsulation feature. A local user could use this flaw to escalate their privileges or crash the system. A flaw was found that can be triggered in keyring_search_iterator in keyring.c if type->match is NULL.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3162-2
Posted Dec 20, 2016

Ubuntu Security Notice 3162-2 - CAI Qian discovered that shared bind mounts in a mount namespace exponentially added entries without restriction to the Linux kernel's mount table. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. Andreas Gruenbacher and Jan Kara discovered that the filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel did not clear the setgid bit during a setxattr call. A local attacker could use this to possibly elevate group privileges. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3162-1 - CAI Qian discovered that shared bind mounts in a mount namespace exponentially added entries without restriction to the Linux kernel's mount table. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. It was discovered that the KVM implementation for x86/x86_64 in the Linux kernel could dereference a null pointer. An attacker in a guest virtual machine could use this to cause a denial of service in the KVM host. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3161-4 - Tilman Schmidt and Sasha Levin discovered a use-after-free condition in the TTY implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. It was discovered that the Video For Linux Two implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly handle multiple planes when processing a VIDIOC_DQBUF ioctl. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.
