CVE-2017-11176

Status Candidate

Overview

The mq_notify function in the Linux kernel through 4.11.9 does not set the sock pointer to NULL upon entry into the retry logic. During a user-space close of a Netlink socket, it allows attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free) or possibly have unspecified other impact.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2018-0169-01

Red Hat Security Advisory 2018-0169-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security Fix: An integer overflow vulnerability in ip6_find_1stfragopt() function was found. A local attacker that has privileges to open raw socket can cause an infinite loop inside the ip6_find_1stfragopt() function. The IPv6 fragmentation implementation in the Linux kernel does not consider that the nexthdr field may be associated with an invalid option, which allows local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted socket and send system calls. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out, although we believe it is unlikely.

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.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3468-2 - USN-3468-1 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 the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly bound guest IRQs. A local attacker in a guest VM could use this to cause a denial of service. It was discovered that the Flash-Friendly File System implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate superblock metadata. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-2931-01 - The kernel-rt packages provide the Real Time Linux Kernel, which enables fine-tuning for systems with extremely high determinism requirements. Security Fix: Out-of-bounds kernel heap access vulnerability was found in xfrm, kernel's IP framework for transforming packets. An error dealing with netlink messages from an unprivileged user leads to arbitrary read/write and privilege escalation. A race condition issue leading to a use-after-free flaw was found in the way the raw packet sockets are implemented in the Linux kernel networking subsystem handling synchronization. A local user able to open a raw packet socket could use this flaw to elevate their privileges on the system.
