-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 _______________________________________________________________________ Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2014:038 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/ _______________________________________________________________________ Package : kernel Date : February 17, 2014 Affected: Business Server 1.0 _______________________________________________________________________ Problem Description: Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in the Linux kernel: The compat_sys_recvmmsg function in net/compat.c in the Linux kernel before 3.13.2, when CONFIG_X86_X32 is enabled, allows local users to gain privileges via a recvmmsg system call with a crafted timeout pointer parameter (CVE-2014-0038). The restore_fpu_checking function in arch/x86/include/asm/fpu-internal.h in the Linux kernel before 3.12.8 on the AMD K7 and K8 platforms does not clear pending exceptions before proceeding to an EMMS instruction, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (task kill) or possibly gain privileges via a crafted application (CVE-2014-1438). The yam_ioctl function in drivers/net/hamradio/yam.c in the Linux kernel before 3.12.8 does not initialize a certain structure member, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for an SIOCYAMGCFG ioctl call (CVE-2014-1446). The updated packages provides a solution for these security issues. _______________________________________________________________________ References: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-0038 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-1438 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-1446 _______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandriva Business Server 1/X86_64: d1faf9544075ff4790e29edd6e7061f6 mbs1/x86_64/cpupower-3.4.80-1.1.mbs1.x86_64.rpm 3498721d639bf646ed55e2903ce728e4 mbs1/x86_64/kernel-firmware-3.4.80-1.1.mbs1.noarch.rpm f9927f4b1512a26d874a82a99636fb09 mbs1/x86_64/kernel-firmware-3.4.80-1.1.mbs1.src.rpm e874467839b96e04bebd0c5b24f31fc3 mbs1/x86_64/kernel-headers-3.4.80-1.1.mbs1.src.rpm 208f74225f3d18189a871ac308c8df5b mbs1/x86_64/kernel-headers-3.4.80-1.1.mbs1.x86_64.rpm e1f82c2b50db46cdb4db2daa933f7173 mbs1/x86_64/kernel-server-3.4.80-1.1.mbs1.x86_64.rpm ed0d8eed6c61553e73121117bcfc978f mbs1/x86_64/kernel-server-devel-3.4.80-1.1.mbs1.x86_64.rpm 00ca38d2289182149e8f43c6871711e8 mbs1/x86_64/kernel-source-3.4.80-1.mbs1.noarch.rpm 429b6e48ee63a03a83577a710bc5368d mbs1/x86_64/lib64cpupower0-3.4.80-1.1.mbs1.x86_64.rpm a6e3898905be2a8d7ded39a5312f7670 mbs1/x86_64/lib64cpupower-devel-3.4.80-1.1.mbs1.x86_64.rpm 086bc3e49adec4147aa1138ae5d5245c mbs1/x86_64/perf-3.4.80-1.1.mbs1.x86_64.rpm f5a65feb515d65f9f1f526f6294af2c3 mbs1/SRPMS/cpupower-3.4.80-1.1.mbs1.src.rpm 56fafb86f60233b29fcd8d42d35e4678 mbs1/SRPMS/kernel-server-3.4.80-1.1.mbs1.src.rpm 715647161acd9ec082c0a2fef0f35fc3 mbs1/SRPMS/kernel-source-3.4.80-1.mbs1.src.rpm cc72e360fa32823a575d1c9536fdecc3 mbs1/SRPMS/perf-3.4.80-1.1.mbs1.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.
