CVE-2018-18397

Status Candidate

Overview

The userfaultfd implementation in the Linux kernel before 4.19.7 mishandles access control for certain UFFDIO_ ioctl calls, as demonstrated by allowing local users to write data into holes in a tmpfs file (if the user has read-only access to that file, and that file contains holes), related to fs/userfaultfd.c and mm/userfaultfd.c.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3903-2 - USN-3903-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel for Ubuntu 18.10. This update provides the corresponding updates for the Linux Hardware Enablement kernel from Ubuntu 18.10 for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. Jason Wang discovered that the vhost net driver in the Linux kernel contained an out of bounds write vulnerability. An attacker in a guest virtual machine could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code in the host kernel. Various other issues were also addressed.

An attacker in a guest virtual machine could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code in the host kernel. Jann Horn discovered that the userfaultd implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly restrict access to certain ioctls. A local attacker could use this possibly to modify files. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3901-1 - Jann Horn discovered that the userfaultd implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly restrict access to certain ioctls. A local attacker could use this possibly to modify files. It was discovered that the crypto subsystem of the Linux kernel leaked uninitialized memory to user space in some situations. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. Various other issues were also addressed.
