CVE-2016-8632

Status Candidate

Overview

The tipc_msg_build function in net/tipc/msg.c in the Linux kernel through 4.8.11 does not validate the relationship between the minimum fragment length and the maximum packet size, which allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3470-2 - USN-3470-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. This update provides the corresponding updates for the Linux Hardware Enablement kernel from Ubuntu 14.04 LTS for Ubuntu 12.04 ESM. Qian Zhang discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in the tipc_msg_build function in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with administrative privileges. Various other issues were also addressed.

Andrey Konovalov discovered a use-after-free vulnerability in the DCCP implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly gain administrative privileges. It was discovered that the stack guard page for processes in the Linux kernel was not sufficiently large enough to prevent overlapping with the heap. An attacker could leverage this with another vulnerability to execute arbitrary code and gain administrative privileges. Various other vulnerabilities were addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3312-2 - USN-3312-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. This update provides the corresponding updates for the Linux Hardware Enablement kernel from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. It was discovered that the netfilter netlink implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate batch messages. A local attacker with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could use this to expose sensitive information or cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.
