Package : linux CVE ID : CVE-2017-0605 CVE-2017-7487 CVE-2017-7645 CVE-2017-7895 CVE-2017-8064 CVE-2017-8890 CVE-2017-8924 CVE-2017-8925 CVE-2017-9074 CVE-2017-9075 CVE-2017-9076 CVE-2017-9077 CVE-2017-9242 CVE-2017-1000364

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service or information leaks.

CVE-2017-0605

A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the trace subsystem.

CVE-2017-7487

Li Qiang reported a reference counter leak in the ipxitf_ioctl
function which may result into a use-after-free vulnerability,
triggerable when a IPX interface is configured.

CVE-2017-7645

Tuomas Haanpaa and Matti Kamunen from Synopsys Ltd discovered that
the NFSv2 and NFSv3 server implementations are vulnerable to an
out-of-bounds memory access issue while processing arbitrarily long
arguments sent by NFSv2/NFSv3 PRC clients, leading to a denial of
service.

CVE-2017-7895

Ari Kauppi from Synopsys Ltd discovered that the NFSv2 and NFSv3
server implementations do not properly handle payload bounds
checking of WRITE requests. A remote attacker with write access to a
NFS mount can take advantage of this flaw to read chunks of
arbitrary memory from both kernel-space and user-space.

CVE-2017-8064

Arnd Bergmann found that the DVB-USB core misused the device
logging system, resulting in a use-after-free vulnerability, with
unknown security impact.

CVE-2017-8890

It was discovered that the net_csk_clone_lock() function allows a
remote attacker to cause a double free leading to a denial of
service or potentially have other impact.

CVE-2017-8924

Johan Hovold found that the io_ti USB serial driver could leak
sensitive information if a malicious USB device was connected.

CVE-2017-8925

Johan Hovold found a reference counter leak in the omninet USB
serial driver, resulting in a use-after-free vulnerability.  This
can be triggered by a local user permitted to open tty devices.

CVE-2017-9074

Andrey Konovalov reported that the IPv6 fragmentation
implementation could read beyond the end of a packet buffer.  A
local user or guest VM might be able to use this to leak sensitive
information or to cause a denial of service (crash).

CVE-2017-9075

Andrey Konovalov reported that the SCTP/IPv6 implementation
wrongly initialised address lists on connected sockets, resulting
in a use-after-free vulnerability, a similar issue to
CVE-2017-8890.  This can be triggered by any local user.

CVE-2017-9076 / CVE-2017-9077

Cong Wang found that the TCP/IPv6 and DCCP/IPv6 implementations
wrongly initialised address lists on connected sockets, a similar
issue to CVE-2017-9075.

CVE-2017-9242

Andrey Konovalov reported a packet buffer overrun in the IPv6
implementation.  A local user could use this for denial of service
(memory corruption; crash) and possibly for privilege escalation.

CVE-2017-1000364

The Qualys Research Labs discovered that the size of the stack guard
page is not sufficiently large. The stack-pointer can jump over the
guard-page and moving from the stack into another memory region
without accessing the guard-page. In this case no page-fault
exception is raised and the stack extends into the other memory
region. An attacker can exploit this flaw for privilege escalation.

The default stack gap protection is set to 256 pages and can be
configured via the stack_guard_gap kernel parameter on the kernel
command line.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 3.16.43-2+deb8u1.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 4.9.30-2+deb9u1 or earlier versions before the stretch release.

We recommend that you upgrade your linux packages.
