[RHSA-2011:1356-01] Moderate: openswan security update

=====================================================================
Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Moderate: openswan security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2011:1356-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-1356.html
Issue date: 2011-10-05
CVE Names: CVE-2011-3380
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated openswan packages that fix one security issue are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop Optional (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6) - i386, ppc64, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional (v. 6) - i386, ppc64, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation Optional (v. 6) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

Openswan is a free implementation of Internet Protocol Security (IPsec)
and Internet Key Exchange (IKE). IPsec uses strong cryptography to provide
both authentication and encryption services. These services allow you to
build secure tunnels through untrusted networks.

A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way Openswan's pluto IKE
daemon handled certain error conditions. A remote, unauthenticated attacker
could send a specially-crafted IKE packet that would crash the pluto
daemon. (CVE-2011-3380)

Red Hat would like to thank the Openswan project for reporting this issue.
Upstream acknowledges Paul Wouters as the original reporter.

All users of openswan are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain a backported patch to correct this issue. After installing
this update, the ipsec service will be restarted automatically.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

742065 - CVE-2011-3380 openswan: IKE invalid key length allows remote unauthenticated user to crash openswan

1. Summary:

Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues, various bugs, and
add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each
vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6) - i386, noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6) - noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6) - i386, noarch, ppc64, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6) - i386, noarch, x86_64

3. Description:

The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux
operating system.

This update fixes the following security issues:

* Flaws in the AGPGART driver implementation when handling certain IOCTL
commands could allow a local user to cause a denial of service or escalate
their privileges. (CVE-2011-1745, CVE-2011-2022, Important)

* An integer overflow flaw in agp_allocate_memory() could allow a local
user to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges.
(CVE-2011-1746, Important)

* A race condition flaw was found in the Linux kernel's eCryptfs
implementation. A local attacker could use the mount.ecryptfs_private
utility to mount (and then access) a directory they would otherwise not
have access to. Note: To correct this issue, the RHSA-2011:1241
ecryptfs-utils update, which provides the user-space part of the fix, must
also be installed. (CVE-2011-1833, Moderate)

* A denial of service flaw was found in the way the taskstats subsystem
handled the registration of process exit handlers. A local, unprivileged
user could register an unlimited amount of these handlers, leading to
excessive CPU time and memory use. (CVE-2011-2484, Moderate)

* A flaw was found in the way mapping expansions were handled. A local,
unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a wrapping condition,
triggering a denial of service. (CVE-2011-2496, Moderate)

* A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's Performance Events implementation.
It could falsely lead the NMI (Non-Maskable Interrupt) Watchdog to detect a
lockup and panic the system. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw
to cause a denial of service (kernel panic) using the perf tool.
(CVE-2011-2521, Moderate)

* A flaw in skb_gro_header_slow() in the Linux kernel could lead to GRO
(Generic Receive Offload) fields being left in an inconsistent state. An
attacker on the local network could use this flaw to trigger a denial of
service. GRO is enabled by default in all network drivers that support it.
(CVE-2011-2723, Moderate)

* A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Performance Events
implementation handled PERF_COUNT_SW_CPU_CLOCK counter overflow. A local,
unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service.
(CVE-2011-2918, Moderate)

* A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
implementation. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to leak
information to user-space. (CVE-2011-1160, Low)

* Flaws were found in the tpacket_rcv() and packet_recvmsg() functions in
the Linux kernel. A local, unprivileged user could use these flaws to leak
information to user-space. (CVE-2011-2898, Low)

Red Hat would like to thank Vasiliy Kulikov of Openwall for reporting
CVE-2011-1745, CVE-2011-2022, CVE-2011-1746, and CVE-2011-2484; the Ubuntu
Security Team for reporting CVE-2011-1833; Robert Swiecki for reporting
CVE-2011-2496; Li Yu for reporting CVE-2011-2521; Brent Meshier for
reporting CVE-2011-2723; and Peter Huewe for reporting CVE-2011-1160. The
Ubuntu Security Team acknowledges Vasiliy Kulikov of Openwall and Dan
Rosenberg as the original reporters of CVE-2011-1833.

This update also fixes various bugs and adds one enhancement. Documentation
for these changes will be available shortly from the Technical Notes
document linked to in the References section.

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported
patches to correct these issues, and fix the bugs and add the enhancement
noted in the Technical Notes. The system must be rebooted for this update
to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259

To install kernel packages manually, use "rpm -ivh [package]". Do not
use "rpm -Uvh" as that will remove the running kernel binaries from
your system. You may use "rpm -e" to remove old kernels after
determining that the new kernel functions properly on your system.
