CVE-2021-26930

Status Candidate

Overview

An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel 3.11 through 5.10.16, as used by Xen. To service requests to the PV backend, the driver maps grant references provided by the frontend. In this process, errors may be encountered. In one case, an error encountered earlier might be discarded by later processing, resulting in the caller assuming successful mapping, and hence subsequent operations trying to access space that wasn't mapped. In another case, internal state would be insufficiently updated, preventing safe recovery from the error. This affects drivers/block/xen-blkback/blkback.c.

Ubuntu Security Notice 4949-1 - Ryota Shiga discovered that the eBPF implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly verify that a BPF program only reserved as much memory for a ring buffer as was allocated. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. Manfred Paul discovered that the eBPF implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly track bounds on bitwise operations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 4946-1 - It was discovered that the DRM subsystem in the Linux kernel contained double-free vulnerabilities. A privileged attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. Olivier Benjamin, Norbert Manthey, Martin Mazein, and Jan H. Schoenherr discovered that the Xen paravirtualization backend in the Linux kernel did not properly propagate errors to frontend drivers in some situations. An attacker in a guest VM could possibly use this to cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 4904-1 - 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. Andrey Konovalov discovered that the video4linux driver for Hauppauge HD PVR USB devices in the Linux kernel did not properly handle some error conditions. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.
