NewStart CGSL MAIN 4.06 : kernel Multiple Vulnerabilities (NS-SA-2019-0212)


The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version MAIN 4.06, has kernel packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities: - In sk_clone_lock of sock.c, there is a possible memory corruption due to type confusion. This could lead to local escalation of privilege with no additional execution privileges needed. User interaction is not needed for exploitation. Product: Android. Versions: Android kernel. Android ID: A-113509306. References: Upstream kernel. (CVE-2018-9568) - An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel before 5.0.7. A NULL pointer dereference can occur when megasas_create_frame_pool() fails in megasas_alloc_cmds() in drivers/scsi/megaraid/megaraid_sas_base.c. This causes a Denial of Service, related to a use-after-free. (CVE-2019-11810) - A buffer overflow flaw was found, in versions from 2.6.34 to 5.2.x, in the way Linux kernel's vhost functionality that translates virtqueue buffers to IOVs, logged the buffer descriptors during migration. A privileged guest user able to pass descriptors with invalid length to the host when migration is underway, could use this flaw to increase their privileges on the host. (CVE-2019-14835) Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
