CVE-2017-7472

Status Candidate

Overview

Red Hat Security Advisory 2018-0152-01

Red Hat Security Advisory 2018-0152-01 - 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 Linux kernel's key management system where it was possible for an attacker to escalate privileges or crash the machine. If a user key gets negatively instantiated, an error code is cached in the payload area. A negatively instantiated key may be then be positively instantiated by updating it with valid data. However, the ->update key type method must be aware that the error code may be there.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2018-0151-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security Fix: An industry-wide issue was found in the way many modern microprocessor designs have implemented speculative execution of instructions. There are three primary variants of the issue which differ in the way the speculative execution can be exploited. Note: This issue is present in hardware and cannot be fully fixed via software update. The updated kernel packages provide software mitigation for this hardware issue at a cost of potential performance penalty. Please refer to References section for further information about this issue and the performance impact.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3422-2
Posted Sep 19, 2017
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 3422-2 - USN-3422-1 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 LTS. It was discovered that a buffer overflow existed in the Bluetooth stack of the Linux kernel when handling L2CAP configuration responses. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3422-1 - It was discovered that a buffer overflow existed in the Bluetooth stack of the Linux kernel when handling L2CAP configuration responses. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. It was discovered that the asynchronous I/O subsystem of the Linux kernel did not properly set permissions on aio memory mappings in some situations. An attacker could use this to more easily exploit other vulnerabilities. Various other issues were also addressed.

Kernel Live Patch Security Notice LSN-0025-1
Posted Jul 16, 2017
Authored by Benjamin M. Romer

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 3314-1 - It was discovered that the keyring implementation in the Linux kernel in some situations did not prevent special internal keyrings from being joined by userspace keyrings. A privileged local attacker could use this to bypass module verification. It was discovered that a buffer overflow existed in the trace subsystem in the Linux kernel.
