______________________________________________________________________________

 

An update that solves 22 vulnerabilities and has 95 fixes

is now available. It includes one version update.

 

Description:

 

 

The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP2 kernel has been updated to

3.0.74 fix various security issues and bugs:

 

This update brings some features:

 

* Updated HD-audio drivers for Nvidia/AMD HDMI and

Haswell audio (FATE#314311 FATE#313695)

* Lustre enablement patches were added (FATE#314679).

* SGI UV (Ultraviolet) platform support. (FATE#306952)

 

Security issues fixed in this update:

 

* CVE-2013-0349: The hidp_setup_hid function in

net/bluetooth/hidp/core.c in the Linux kernel did not

properly copy a certain name field, which allowed local

users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by

setting a long name and making an HIDPCONNADD ioctl call.

* CVE-2012-2137: Buffer overflow in virt/kvm/irq_comm.c

in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed local

users to cause a denial of service (crash) and to possibly

execute arbitrary code via vectors related to Message

Signaled Interrupts (MSI), irq routing entries, and an

incorrect check by the setup_routing_entry function before

invoking the kvm_set_irq function.

* CVE-2012-6549: The isofs_export_encode_fh function in

fs/isofs/export.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a

certain structure member, which allowed local users to

obtain sensitive information from kernel heap memory via a

crafted application.

* CVE-2012-6548: The udf_encode_fh function in

fs/udf/namei.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a

certain structure member, which allowed local users to

obtain sensitive information from kernel heap memory via a

crafted application.

* CVE-2013-0160: Timing side channel on attacks were

possible on /dev/ptmx that could allow local attackers to

predict keypresses like e.g. passwords. This has been fixed

by not up[censored] accessed/modified time on the pty devices.

Note that this might break pty idle detection, so it might

get reverted again.

* CVE-2013-0216: The Xen netback functionality in the

Linux kernel allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of

service (loop) by triggering ring pointer corruption.

* CVE-2013-0231: The pciback_enable_msi function in the

PCI backend driver

(drivers/xen/pciback/conf_space_capability_msi.c) in Xen

for the Linux allowed guest OS users with PCI device access

to cause a denial of service via a large number of kernel

log messages.

* CVE-2013-0311: The translate_desc function in

drivers/vhost/vhost.c in the Linux kernel did not properly

handle cross-region descriptors, which allowed guest OS

users to obtain host OS privileges by leveraging KVM guest

OS privileges.

* CVE-2013-0913: Integer overflow in

drivers/gpu/drm/i915/i915_gem_execbuffer.c in the i915

driver in the Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) subsystem in

the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of

service (heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly have

unspecified other impact via a crafted application that

triggers many relocation copies, and potentially leads to a

race condition.

* CVE-2013-0914: The flush_signal_handlers function in

kernel/signal.c in the Linux kernel preserved the value of

the sa_restorer field across an exec operation, which makes

it easier for local users to bypass the ASLR protection

mechanism via a crafted application containing a sigaction

system call.

* CVE-2013-1767: Use-after-free vulnerability in the

shmem_remount_fs function in mm/shmem.c in the Linux kernel

allowed local users to gain privileges or to cause a denial

of service (system crash) by remounting a tmpfs filesystem

without specifying a required mpol (aka mempolicy) mount

option.

* CVE-2013-1772: The log_prefix function in

kernel/printk.c in the Linux kernel 3.x did not properly

remove a prefix string from a syslog header, which allowed

local users to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow

and system crash) by leveraging /dev/kmsg write access and

triggering a call_console_drivers function call.

* CVE-2013-1774: The chase_port function in

drivers/usb/serial/io_ti.c in the Linux kernel allowed

local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer

dereference and system crash) via an attempted /dev/ttyUSB

read or write operation on a disconnected Edgeport USB

serial converter.

* CVE-2013-1792: Race condition in the

install_user_keyrings function in

security/keys/process_keys.c in the Linux kernel allowed

local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer

dereference and system crash) via crafted keyctl system

calls that trigger keyring operations in simultaneous

threads.

* CVE-2013-1796: The kvm_set_msr_common function in

arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in the Linux kernel did not ensure a

required time_page alignment during an MSR_KVM_SYSTEM_TIME

operation, which allowed guest OS users to cause a denial

of service (buffer overflow and host OS memory corruption)

or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted

application.

* CVE-2013-1797: Use-after-free vulnerability in

arch/x86/kvm/x86.c in the Linux kernel allowed guest OS

users to cause a denial of service (host OS memory

corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a

crafted application that triggers use of a guest physical

address (GPA) in (1) movable or (2) removable memory during

an MSR_KVM_SYSTEM_TIME kvm_set_msr_common operation.

* CVE-2013-1798: The ioapic_read_indirect function in

virt/kvm/ioapic.c in the Linux kernel did not properly

handle a certain combination of invalid IOAPIC_REG_SELECT

and IOAPIC_REG_WINDOW operations, which allows guest OS

users to obtain sensitive information from host OS memory

or cause a denial of service (host OS OOPS) via a crafted

application.

* CVE-2013-1848: fs/ext3/super.c in the Linux kernel

used incorrect arguments to functions in certain

circumstances related to printk input, which allowed local

users to conduct format-string attacks and possibly gain

privileges via a crafted application.

* CVE-2013-1860: Heap-based buffer overflow in the

wdm_in_callback function in drivers/usb/class/cdc-wdm.c in

the Linux kernel allowed physically proximate attackers to

cause a denial of service (system crash) or to possibly

execute arbitrary code via a crafted cdc-wdm USB device.

* CVE-2013-2634: net/dcb/dcbnl.c in the Linux kernel

did not initialize certain structures, which allowed local

users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack

memory via a crafted application.

* CVE-2013-2635: The rtnl_fill_ifinfo function in

net/core/rtnetlink.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize

a certain structure member, which allowed local users to

obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a

crafted application.

* CVE-2013-0268: The msr_open function in

arch/x86/kernel/msr.c in the Linux kernel allowed local

users to bypass intended capability restrictions by

executing a crafted application as root, as demonstrated by

msr32.c.
