Summary

Vulnerabilities in the Linux Kernel affect IBM SAN Volume Controller, IBM Storwize V7000, V5000, V3700 and V3500, IBM Spectrum Virtualize Software, IBM Spectrum Virtualize for Public Cloud and IBM FlashSystem V9000 and 9100 family products. The applicable CVEs are CVE-2017-18017 and CVE-2017-17449.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2017-18017 DESCRIPTION: Linux Kernel is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a use-after-free flaw in the tcpmss_mangle_packet function in net/netfilter/xt_TCPMSS.c. By leveraging the presence of xt_TCPMSS in an iptables action, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service condition.
CVSS Base Score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See <https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/137122&gt; for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H)

CVEID: CVE-2017-17449 DESCRIPTION: Linux Kernel could allow a local attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by the failure to restrict observations of Netlink messages to a single net namespace when CONFIG_NLMON is enabled in the __netlink_deliver_tap_skb function in net/netlink/af_netlink.c. By leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability to sniff an nlmon interface for all Netlink activity on the system, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain sensitive information.
CVSS Base Score: 6.2
CVSS Temporal Score: See <https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/136106&gt; for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N)
