According to the versions of the kernel packages installed, the EulerOS Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

  • An information-leak vulnerability was found in the kernel when it truncated a file to a smaller size which consisted of an inline extent that was compressed. The data between the new file size and the old file size was not discarded and the number of bytes used by the inode were not correctly decremented, which gave the wrong report for callers of the stat(2) syscall. This wasted metadata space and allowed for the truncated data to be leaked, and data corruption or loss to occur. A caller of the clone ioctl could exploit this flaw by using only standard file-system operations without root access to read the truncated data.(CVE-2015-8374)

  • A flaw was found in the Linux kernel’s key management system where it was possible for an attacker to escalate privileges or crash the machine. If a user key gets negatively instantiated, an error code is cached in the payload area. A negatively instantiated key may be then be positively instantiated by updating it with valid data. However, the -i1/4zupdate key type method must be aware that the error code may be there.(CVE-2015-8539)

  • A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel’s network subsystem handled socket creation with an invalid protocol identifier. A local user could use this flaw to crash the system.(CVE-2015-8543)

  • An out-of-bounds flaw was found in the kernel, where the length of the sockaddr parameter was not checked in the pptp_bind() and pptp_connect() functions. As a result, more kernel memory was copied out than required, leaking information from the kernel stack (including kernel addresses). A local system user could exploit this flaw to bypass kernel ASLR or leak other information.(CVE-2015-8569)

  • An out-of-bounds flaw was found in the kernel, where the sco_sock_bind() function (bluetooth/sco) did not check the length of its sockaddr parameter. As a result, more kernel memory was copied out than required, leaking information from the kernel stack (including kernel addresses). A local user could exploit this flaw to bypass kernel ASLR or leak other information.(CVE-2015-8575)

  • The ovl_setattr function in fs/overlayfs/inode.c in the Linux kernel through 4.3.3 attempts to merge distinct setattr operations, which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions and modify the attributes of arbitrary overlay files via a crafted application.(CVE-2015-8660)

  • A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the Linux kernel: the NFSv4.2 migration code improperly initialized the kernel structure. A local, authenticated user could use this flaw to cause a panic of the NFS client (denial of service).(CVE-2015-8746)

  • A race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel’s SCTP implementation handled sctp_accept() during the processing of heartbeat timeout events. A remote attacker could use this flaw to prevent further connections to be accepted by the SCTP server running on the system, resulting in a denial of service.(CVE-2015-8767)

  • An infinite-loop flaw was found in the kernel. When a local user calls the sys_writev syscall with a specially crafted sequence of iov structs, the fuse_fill_write_pages kernel function might never terminate, instead continuing in a tight loop. This process cannot be terminated and requires a reboot.(CVE-2015-8785)

  • A NULL-pointer dereference vulnerability was found in the Linux kernel’s TCP stack, in net/netfilter/nf_nat_redirect.c in the nf_nat_redirect_ipv4() function. A remote, unauthenticated user could exploit this flaw to create a system crash (denial of service).(CVE-2015-8787)

  • A use-after-free flaw was found in the CXGB3 kernel driver when the network was considered to be congested.
    The kernel incorrectly misinterpreted the congestion as an error condition and incorrectly freed or cleaned up the socket buffer (skb). When the device then sent the skb’s queued data, these structures were referenced. A local attacker could use this flaw to panic the system (denial of service) or, with a local account, escalate their privileges.(CVE-2015-8812)

  • The hub_activate function in drivers/usb/core/hub.c in the Linux kernel before 4.3.5 does not properly maintain a hub-interface data structure, which allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid memory access and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by unplugging a USB hub device.(CVE-2015-8816)

  • The ioresources_init function in kernel/resource.c in the Linux kernel through 4.7, as used in Android before 2016-08-05 on Nexus 6 and 7 (2013) devices, uses weak permissions for /proc/iomem, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by reading this file, aka Android internal bug 28814213 and Qualcomm internal bug CR786116. NOTE: the permissions may be intentional in most non-Android contexts.(CVE-2015-8944)

  • 'A flaw was found in the Linux kernel’s implementation of overlayfs. An attacker can leak file resources in the system by opening a large file with write permissions on a overlay filesystem that is insufficient to deal with the size of the write.

  • When unmounting the underlying device, the system is unable to free an inode and this will consume resources. Repeating this for all available inodes and memory will create a denial of service situation.(CVE-2015-8953)’

  • The rfcomm_sock_bind function in net/bluetooth/rfcomm/sock.c in the Linux kernel before 4.2 allows local users to obtain sensitive information or cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) via vectors involving a bind system call on a Bluetooth RFCOMM socket.(CVE-2015-8956)

  • A flaw was found in the ext4 subsystem. This vulnerability is a use after free vulnerability was found in __ext4_journal_stop(). Attackers could abuse this to allow any code which attempts to deal with the journal failure to be mishandled or not fail at all.
    This could lead to data corruption or crashes.(CVE-2015-8961)

  • A flaw was found in the Linux kernel SCSI subsystem, which allowed a local user to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) by issuing an SG_IO ioctl call while a device was being detached.(CVE-2015-8962)

  • Race condition in kernel/events/core.c in the Linux kernel before 4.4 allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service via use-after-free vulnerability by leveraging incorrect handling of an swevent data structure during a CPU unplug operation.(CVE-2015-8963)

  • The tty_set_termios_ldisc() function in ‘drivers/tty/tty_ldisc.c’ in the Linux kernel before 4.5 allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by reading a tty data structure.(CVE-2015-8964)

  • The lrw_crypt() function in ‘crypto/lrw.c’ in the Linux kernel before 4.5 allows local users to cause a system crash and a denial of service by the NULL pointer dereference via accept(2) system call for AF_ALG socket without calling setkey() first to set a cipher key.(CVE-2015-8970)

  • It was found that kernel/events/core.c in the Linux kernel mishandles counter grouping, which allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted application, related to the perf_pmu_register and perf_event_open functions.(CVE-2015-9004)

  • A use-after-free flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel’s tty subsystem, which allows for the disclosure of uncontrolled memory location and possible kernel panic. The information leak is caused by a race condition when attempting to set and read the tty line discipline. A local attacker could use the TIOCSETD (via tty_set_ldisc ) to switch to a new line discipline a concurrent call to a TIOCGETD ioctl performing a read on a given tty could then access previously allocated memory. Up to 4 bytes could be leaked when querying the line discipline or the kernel could panic with a NULL-pointer dereference.(CVE-2016-0723)
