CVE-2017-2583

Status Candidate

Overview

The load_segment_descriptor implementation in arch/x86/kvm/emulate.c in the Linux kernel before 4.9.5 improperly emulates a "MOV SS, NULL selector" instruction, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) or gain guest OS privileges via a crafted application.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3361-1
Posted Jul 21, 2017
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 3361-1 - USN-3358-1 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. Please note that this update changes the Linux HWE kernel to the 4.10 based kernel from Ubuntu 17.04, superseding the 4.8 based HWE kernel from Ubuntu 16.10. Ben Harris discovered that the Linux kernel would strip extended privilege attributes of files when performing a failed unprivileged system call. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-1615-01

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-1615-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security Fix: A flaw was found in the way Linux kernel allocates heap memory to build the scattergather list from a fragment list->frag_list) in the socket buffer. The heap overflow occurred if 'MAX_SKB_FRAGS + 1' parameter and 'NETIF_F_FRAGLIST' feature were used together. A remote user or process could use this flaw to potentially escalate their privilege on a system.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-1616-01 - The kernel-rt packages provide the Real Time Linux Kernel, which enables fine-tuning for systems with extremely high determinism requirements. Security Fix: A flaw was found in the way memory was being allocated on the stack for user space binaries. If heap and stack memory regions were adjacent to each other, an attacker could use this flaw to jump over the stack guard gap, cause controlled memory corruption on process stack or the adjacent memory region, and thus increase their privileges on the system. This is a kernel-side mitigation which increases the stack guard gap size from one page to 1 MiB to make successful exploitation of this issue more difficult.

Kernel Live Patch Security Notice LSN-0021-1
Posted Apr 15, 2017
Authored by Benjamin M. Romer

Several security issues were fixed in the kernel. Andrey Konovalov discovered that the AF_PACKET implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate certain block-size data. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). 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. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3208-1 - It was discovered that the generic SCSI block layer in the Linux kernel did not properly restrict write operations in certain situations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly gain administrative privileges. CAI Qian discovered that the sysctl implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly perform reference counting in some situations. An unprivileged attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.
