SUSE Security Update: Security update for the Linux kernel ______________________________________________________________________________ Announcement ID: SUSE-SU-2011:1058-1 Rating: important References: #635880 #665543 #677676 #684297 #687812 #689797 #692784 #693043 #696107 #698221 #701254 #701355 #702013 #702285 #705463 #714001 Cross-References: CVE-2011-0726 CVE-2011-1017 CVE-2011-1093 CVE-2011-1585 CVE-2011-1745 CVE-2011-1746 CVE-2011-1776 CVE-2011-2022 CVE-2011-2182 CVE-2011-2491 CVE-2011-2496 CVE-2011-3191 Affected Products: SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP3 SLE SDK 10 SP3 ______________________________________________________________________________ An update that solves 12 vulnerabilities and has four fixes is now available. Description: This kernel update for the SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP3 kernel fixes several security issues and bugs. The following security issues have been fixed: * CVE-2011-3191: A signedness issue in CIFS could possibly have lead to to memory corruption, if a malicious server could send crafted replies to the host. * CVE-2011-1776: Timo Warns reported an issue in the Linux implementation for GUID partitions. Users with physical access could gain access to sensitive kernel memory by adding a storage device with a specially crafted corrupted invalid partition table. * CVE-2011-1093: The dccp_rcv_state_process function in net/dccp/input.c in the Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP) implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly handle packets for a CLOSED endpoint, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) by sending a DCCP-Close packet followed by a DCCP-Reset packet. * CVE-2011-1745: Integer overflow in the agp_generic_insert_memory function in drivers/char/agp/generic.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (system crash) via a crafted AGPIOC_BIND agp_ioctl ioctl call. * CVE-2011-1746: Multiple integer overflows in the (1) agp_allocate_memory and (2) agp_create_user_memory functions in drivers/char/agp/generic.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to trigger buffer overflows, and consequently cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact, via vectors related to calls that specify a large number of memory pages. * CVE-2011-2022: The agp_generic_remove_memory function in drivers/char/agp/generic.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.38.5 did not validate a certain start parameter, which allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (system crash) via a crafted AGPIOC_UNBIND agp_ioctl ioctl call, a different vulnerability than CVE-2011-1745. * CVE-2011-0726: The do_task_stat function in fs/proc/array.c in the Linux kernel did not perform an expected uid check, which made it easier for local users to defeat the ASLR protection mechanism by reading the start_code and end_code fields in the /proc/#####/stat file for a process executing a PIE binary. * CVE-2011-2496: The normal mmap paths all avoid creating a mapping where the pgoff inside the mapping could wrap around due to overflow. However, an expanding mremap() can take such a non-wrapping mapping and make it bigger and cause a wrapping condition. * CVE-2011-2491: A local unprivileged user able to access a NFS filesystem could use file locking to deadlock parts of an nfs server under some circumstance. * CVE-2011-1017,CVE-2011-2182: The code for evaluating LDM partitions (in fs/partitions/ldm.c) contained bugs that could crash the kernel for certain corrupted LDM partitions. * CVE-2011-1585: When using a setuid root mount.cifs, local users could hijack password protected mounted CIFS shares of other local users. Also following non-security bugs were fixed: * patches.suse/fs-proc-vmcorec-add-hook-to-read_from_oldmem-to -check-for-non-ram-pages.patch: fs/proc/vmcore.c: add hook to read_from_oldmem() to check for non-ram pages (bnc#684297). * patches.xen/1062-xenbus-dev-leak.patch: xenbus: Fix memory leak on release. * patches.xen/1074-xenbus_conn-type.patch: xenbus: fix type inconsistency with xenbus_conn(). * patches.xen/1080-blkfront-xenbus-gather-format.patch: blkfront: fix data size for xenbus_gather in connect(). * patches.xen/1081-blkback-resize-transaction-end.patch: xenbus: fix xenbus_transaction_start() hang caused by double xenbus_transaction_end(). * patches.xen/1089-blkback-barrier-check.patch: blkback: dont fail empty barrier requests. * patches.xen/1091-xenbus-dev-no-BUG.patch: xenbus: dont BUG() on user mode induced conditions (bnc#696107). * patches.xen/1098-blkfront-cdrom-ioctl-check.patch: blkfront: avoid NULL de-reference in CDROM ioctl handling (bnc#701355). * patches.xen/1102-x86-max-contig-order.patch: x86: use dynamically adjusted upper bound for contiguous regions (bnc#635880). * patches.xen/xen3-x86-sanitize-user-specified-e820-memmap-val ues.patch: x86: sanitize user specified e820 memmap values (bnc#665543). * patches.fixes/libiscsi-dont-run-scsi-eh-if-iscsi-task-is-mak ing-progress: Fix typo, which was uncovered in debug mode. * patches.fixes/pacct-fix-sighand-siglock-usage.patch: Fix sighand->siglock usage in kernel/acct.c (bnc#705463).
