CVE-2017-1000255

Status Candidate

Overview

On Linux running on PowerPC hardware (Power8 or later) a user process can craft a signal frame and then do a sigreturn so that the kernel will take an exception (interrupt), and use the r1 value *from the signal frame* as the kernel stack pointer. As part of the exception entry the content of the signal frame is written to the kernel stack, allowing an attacker to overwrite arbitrary locations with arbitrary values. The exception handling does produce an oops, and a panic if panic_on_oops=1, but only after kernel memory has been over written. This flaw was introduced in commit: "5d176f751ee3 (powerpc: tm: Enable transactional memory (TM) lazily for userspace)" which was merged upstream into v4.9-rc1. Please note that kernels built with CONFIG_PPC_TRANSACTIONAL_MEM=n are not vulnerable.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3487-1 - It was discovered that the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly keep track of nested levels in guest page tables. A local attacker in a guest VM could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code in the host OS. It was discovered that on the PowerPC architecture, the kernel did not properly sanitize the signal stack when handling sigreturn. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3443-2 - USN-3443-1 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. It was discovered that on the PowerPC architecture, the kernel did not properly sanitize the signal stack when handling sigreturn. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3443-1 - It was discovered that on the PowerPC architecture, the kernel did not properly sanitize the signal stack when handling sigreturn. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. Andrey Konovalov discovered that a divide-by-zero error existed in the TCP stack implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.
