Title: DSA-2153-1 linux-2.6 -- privilege escalation/denial of service/information leak
Description: Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service or information leak. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: CVE-2010-0435 Gleb Napatov reported an issue in the KVM subsystem that allows virtual machines to cause a denial of service of the host machine by executing mov to/from DR instructions. CVE-2010-3699 Keir Fraser provided a fix for an issue in the Xen subsystem. A guest can cause a denial of service on the host by retaining a leaked reference to a device. This can result in a zombie domain, xenwatch process hangs, and xm command failures. CVE-2010-4158 Dan Rosenberg discovered an issue in the socket filters subsystem, allowing local unprivileged users to obtain the contents of sensitive kernel memory. CVE-2010-4162 Dan Rosenberg discovered an overflow issue in the block I/O subsystem that allows local users to map large numbers of pages, resulting in a denial of service due to invocation of the out of memory killer. CVE-2010-4163 Dan Rosenberg discovered an issue in the block I/O subsystem. Due to improper validation of iov segments, local users can trigger a kernel panic resulting in a denial of service. CVE-2010-4242 Alan Cox reported an issue in the Bluetooth subsystem. Local users with sufficient permission to access HCI UART devices can cause a denial of service due to a missing check for an existing tty write operation. CVE-2010-4243 Brad Spengler reported a denial-of-service issue in the kernel memory accounting system. By passing large argv/envp values to exec, local users can cause the out of memory killer to kill processes owned by other users. CVE-2010-4248 Oleg Nesterov reported an issue in the POSIX CPU timers subsystem. Local users can cause a denial of service due to incorrect assumptions about thread group leader behavior. CVE-2010-4249 Vegard Nossum reported an issue with the UNIX socket garbage collector. Local users can consume all of LOWMEM and decrease system performance by overloading the system with inflight sockets. CVE-2010-4258 Nelson Elhage reported an issue in Linux oops handling. Local users may be able to obtain elevated privileges if they are able to trigger an oops with a process" fs set to KERNEL_DS. CVE-2010-4342 Nelson Elhage reported an issue in the econet protocol. Remote attackers can cause a denial of service by sending an Acorn Universal Networking packet over UDP. CVE-2010-4346 Tavis Ormandy discovered an issue in the install_special_mapping routine which allows local users to bypass the mmap_min_addr security restriction. Combined with an otherwise low severity local denial of service vulnerability, a local user could obtain elevated privileges. CVE-2010-4526 Eugene Teo reported a race condition in the Linux SCTP implementation. Remote users can cause a denial of service by transmitting an ICMP unreachable message to a locked socket. CVE-2010-4527 Dan Rosenberg reported two issues in the OSS soundcard driver. Local users with access to the device may contain access to sensitive kernel memory or cause a buffer overflow, potentially leading to an escalation of privileges. CVE-2010-4529 Dan Rosenberg reported an issue in the Linux kernel IrDA socket implementation on non-x86 architectures. Local users may be able to gain access to sensitive kernel memory via a specially crafted IRLMP_ENUMDEVICES getsockopt call. CVE-2010-4565 Dan Rosenberg reported an issue in the Linux CAN protocol implementation. Local users can obtain the address of a kernel heap object which might help facilitate system exploitation. CVE-2010-4649 Dan Carpenter reported an issue in the uverb handling of the InfiniBand subsystem. A potential buffer overflow may allow local users to cause a denial of service by passing in a large cmd.ne value. CVE-2010-4656 Kees Cook reported an issue in the driver for I/O-Warrior USB devices. Local users with access to these devices maybe able to overrun kernel buffers, resulting in a denial of service or privilege escalation. CVE-2010-4668 Dan Rosenberg reported an issue in the block subsystem. A local user can cause a denial of service by submitting certain 0-length I/O requests. CVE-2011-0521 Dan Carpenter reported an issue in the DVB driver for AV7110 cards. Local users can pass a negative info->num value, corrupting kernel memory and causing a denial of service.

A remote attacker could exploit this to read or write disk blocks that had changed file assignment or had become unlinked, leading to a loss of privacy. Dan Rosenberg discovered that several network ioctls did not clear kernel memory correctly. A local user could exploit this to read kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy. Kees Cook and Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that the shm interface did not clear kernel memory correctly. A local attacker could exploit this to read kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy

Title: USN-1105-1 -- linux vulnerabilities
Description: Dan Rosenberg discovered that multiple terminal ioctls did not correctly initialize structure memory. A local attacker could exploit this to read portions of kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy. Dan Rosenberg discovered that the socket filters did not correctly initialize structure memory. A local attacker could create malicious filters to read portions of kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy. Dan Rosenberg discovered that certain iovec operations did not calculate page counts correctly. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. Dan Rosenberg discovered that the SCSI subsystem did not correctly validate iov segments. A local attacker with access to a SCSI device could send specially crafted requests to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. Dan Rosenberg discovered multiple flaws in the X.25 facilities parsing. If a system was using X.25, a remote attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. Alan Cox discovered that the HCI UART driver did not correctly check if a write operation was available. A local attacker could exploit this flaw to gain root privileges. Nelson Elhage discovered that the kernel did not correctly handle process cleanup after triggering a recoverable kernel bug. If a local attacker were able to trigger certain kinds of kernel bugs, they could create a specially crafted process to gain root privileges. Tavis Ormandy discovered that the install_special_mapping function could bypass the mmap_min_addr restriction. A local attacker could exploit this to mmap 4096 bytes below the mmap_min_addr area, possibly improving the chances of performing NULL pointer dereference attacks

Title: DEPRECATED: ELSA-2011-0017 -- Oracle Linux 5.6 kernel security and bug fix update (important)
Description: This update fixes the following security issues: * A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the igb driver in the Linux kernel. If both the Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) feature and promiscuous mode were enabled on an interface using igb, it could result in a denial of service when a tagged VLAN packet is received on that interface. (CVE-2010-4263, Important) * A missing sanity check was found in vbd_create() in the Xen hypervisor implementation. As CD-ROM drives are not supported by the blkback back-end driver, attempting to use a virtual CD-ROM drive with blkback could trigger a denial of service (crash) on the host system running the Xen hypervisor. (CVE-2010-4238, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the Linux kernel execve() system call implementation. A local, unprivileged user could cause large amounts of memory to be allocated but not visible to the OOM (Out of Memory) killer, triggering a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4243, Moderate) * A flaw was found in fixup_page_fault() in the Xen hypervisor implementation. If a 64-bit para-virtualized guest accessed a certain area of memory, it could cause a denial of service on the host system running the Xen hypervisor. (CVE-2010-4255, Moderate) * A missing initialization flaw was found in the bfa driver used by Brocade Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service by reading a file in the "/sys/class/fc_host/host#/statistics/" directory. (CVE-2010-4343, Moderate) * Missing initialization flaws in the Linux kernel could lead to information leaks. (CVE-2010-3296, CVE-2010-3877, CVE-2010-4072, CVE-2010-4073, CVE-2010-4075, CVE-2010-4080, CVE-2010-4081, CVE-2010-4158, Low)

Title: DSA-2129-1 krb5 -- checksum verification weakness
Description: A vulnerability has been found in krb5, the MIT implementation of Kerberos. MIT krb5 clients incorrectly accept an unkeyed checksums in the SAM-2 preauthentication challenge: An unauthenticated remote attacker could alter a SAM-2 challenge, affecting the prompt text seen by the user or the kind of response sent to the KDC. Under some circumstances, this can negate the incremental security benefit of using a single-use authentication mechanism token. MIT krb5 incorrectly accepts RFC 3961 key-derivation checksums using RC4 keys when verifying KRB-SAFE messages: An unauthenticated remote attacker has a 1/256 chance of forging KRB-SAFE messages in an application protocol if the targeted pre-existing session uses an RC4 session key. Few application protocols use KRB-SAFE messages. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned CVE-2010-1323 to these issues. For the stable distribution, these problems have been fixed in version 1.6.dfsg.4~beta1-5lenny6. The builds for the mips architecture are not included in this advisory. They will be released as soon as they are available. For the testing distribution and the unstable distribution, these problem have been fixed in version 1.8.3+dfsg-3. We recommend that you upgrade your krb5 packages.
