CVE-2017-12153

Status Candidate

Overview

A security flaw was discovered in the nl80211_set_rekey_data() function in net/wireless/nl80211.c in the Linux kernel through 4.13.3. This function does not check whether the required attributes are present in a Netlink request. This request can be issued by a user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability and may result in a NULL pointer dereference and system crash.

Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 3583-2 - USN-3583-1 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. It was discovered that an out-of-bounds write vulnerability existed in the Flash-Friendly File System in the Linux kernel. An attacker could construct a malicious file system that, when mounted, could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3583-1 - It was discovered that an out-of-bounds write vulnerability existed in the Flash-Friendly File System in the Linux kernel. An attacker could construct a malicious file system that, when mounted, could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. It was discovered that a race condition leading to a use-after-free vulnerability existed in the ALSA PCM subsystem of the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.

Kernel Live Patch Security Notice LSN-0032-2
Posted Nov 29, 2017
Authored by Benjamin M. Romer

Anthony Perard discovered that the Xen virtual block driver did not properly initialize some data structures before passing them to user space. A local attacker in a guest VM could use this to expose sensitive information from the host OS or other guest VMs. Bo Zhang discovered that the netlink wireless configuration interface in the Linux kernel did not properly validate attributes when handling certain requests. A local attacker with the CAP_NET_ADMIN could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). It was discovered that the nested KVM implementation in the Linux kernel in some situations did not properly prevent second level guests from reading and writing the hardware CR8 register. A local attacker in a guest could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). Otto Ebeling discovered that the memory manager in the Linux kernel did not properly check the effective UID in some situations. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information.

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.
