CVE-2021-26931

Status Candidate

Overview

An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel 2.6.39 through 5.10.16, as used in Xen. Block, net, and SCSI backends consider certain errors a plain bug, deliberately causing a kernel crash. For errors potentially being at least under the influence of guests (such as out of memory conditions), it isn't correct to assume a plain bug. Memory allocations potentially causing such crashes occur only when Linux is running in PV mode, though. This affects drivers/block/xen-blkback/blkback.c and drivers/xen/xen-scsiback.c.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4949-1

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 4909-1 - Loris Reiff discovered that the BPF implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate attributes in the getsockopt BPF hook. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service. 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.
