Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: kernel
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:022
Date: January 25th, 2005

Affected versions: 10.0, 10.1, 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1,
Corporate Server 3.0,
Multi Network Firewall 8.2
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A number of vulnerabilities are fixed in the 2.4 and 2.6 kernels with this advisory:

- Multiple race conditions in the terminal layer of 2.4 and 2.6 kernels (prior to 2.6.9) can allow a local attacker to obtain portions of kernel data or allow remote attackers to cause a kernel panic by switching from console to PPP line discipline, then quickly sending data that is received during the switch (CAN-2004-0814)



- Richard Hart found an integer underflow problem in the iptables firewall logging rules that can allow a remote attacker to crash the machine by using a specially crafted IP packet. This is only possible, however, if firewalling is enabled. The problem only affects 2.6 kernels and was fixed upstream in 2.6.8 (CAN-2004-0816)

- Stefan Esser found several remote DoS confitions in the smbfs file system. This could be exploited by a hostile SMB server (or an attacker injecting packets into the network) to crash the client systems (CAN-2004-0883 and CAN-2004-0949)

- Paul Starzetz and Georgi Guninski reported, independantly, that bad argument handling and bad integer arithmetics in the IPv4 sendmsg handling of control messages could lead to a local attacker crashing the machine. The fixes were done by Herbert Xu (CAN-2004-1016)

- Rob Landley discovered a race condition in the handling of /proc/.../cmdline where, under rare circumstances, a user could read the environment variables of another process that was still spawning leading to the potential disclosure of sensitive information such as passwords (CAN-2004-1058)

- Paul Starzetz reported that the missing serialization in unix_dgram_recvmsg() which was added to kernel 2.4.28 can be used by a local attacker to gain elevated (root) privileges (CAN-2004-1068)

- Ross Kendall Axe discovered a possible kernel panic (DoS) while sending AF_UNIX network packets if certain SELinux-related kernel options were enabled. By default the CONFIG_SECURITY_NETWORK and CONFIG_SECURITY_SELINUX options are not enabled (CAN-2004-1069)

- Paul Starzetz of isec.pl discovered several issues with the error handling of the ELF loader routines in the kernel. The fixes were provided by Chris Wright (CAN-2004-1070, CAN-2004-1071, CAN-2004-1072, CAN-2004-1073)

- It was discovered that hand-crafted a.out binaries could be used to trigger a local DoS condition in both the 2.4 and 2.6 kernels. The fixes were done by Chris Wright (CAN-2004-1074)

- Paul Starzetz found bad handling in the IGMP code which could lead to a local attacker being able to crash the machine. The fix was done by Chris Wright (CAN-2004-1137)

- Jeremy Fitzhardinge discovered two buffer overflows in the sys32_ni_syscall() and sys32_vm86_warning() functions that could be used to overwrite kernel memory with attacker-supplied code resulting in privilege escalation (CAN-2004-1151)

- Paul Starzetz found locally exploitable flaws in the binary format loader's uselib() function that could be abused to allow a local user to obtain root privileges (CAN-2004-1235)

- Paul Starzetz found an exploitable flaw in the page fault handler when running on SMP machines (CAN-2005-0001)

- A vulnerability in insert_vm_struct could allow a locla user to trigger BUG() when the user created a large vma that overlapped with arg pages during exec (CAN-2005-0003)

- Paul Starzetz also found a number of vulnerabilities in the kernel binfmt_elf loader that could lead a local user to obtain elevated (root) privileges (isec-0017-binfmt_elf)

The provided packages are patched to fix these vulnerabilities. All users are encouraged to upgrade to these updated kernels.

To update your kernel, please follow the directions located at:

http://www.mandrakesoft.com/security/kernelupdate

PLEASE NOTE: Mandrakelinux 10.0 users will need to upgrade to the latest module-init-tools package prior to upgrading their kernel. Likewise, MNF8.2 users will need to upgrade to the latest modutils package prior to upgrading their kernel.
