linux-4.9 - security update

Description

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service or information leaks. * [CVE-2019-0136](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2019-0136) It was discovered that the wifi soft-MAC implementation (mac80211) did not properly authenticate Tunneled Direct Link Setup (TDLS) messages. A nearby attacker could use this for denial of service (loss of wifi connectivity). * [CVE-2019-9506](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2019-9506) Daniele Antonioli, Nils Ole Tippenhauer, and Kasper Rasmussen discovered a weakness in the Bluetooth pairing protocols, dubbed the KNOB attack. An attacker that is nearby during pairing could use this to weaken the encryption used between the paired devices, and then to eavesdrop on and/or spoof communication between them. This update mitigates the attack by requiring a minimum encryption key length of 56 bits. * [CVE-2019-11487](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2019-11487) Jann Horn discovered that the FUSE (Filesystem-in-Userspace) facility could be used to cause integer overflow in page reference counts, leading to a use-after-free. On a system with sufficient physical memory, a local user permitted to create arbitrary FUSE mounts could use this for privilege escalation. By default, unprivileged users can only mount FUSE filesystems through fusermount, which limits the number of mounts created and should completely mitigate the issue. * [CVE-2019-15211](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2019-15211) The syzkaller tool found a bug in the radio-raremono driver that could lead to a use-after-free. An attacker able to add and remove USB devices could use this to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly for privilege escalation. * [CVE-2019-15212](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2019-15212) The syzkaller tool found that the rio500 driver does not work correctly if more than one device is bound to it. An attacker able to add USB devices could use this to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly for privilege escalation. * [CVE-2019-15215](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2019-15215) The syzkaller tool found a bug in the cpia2\_usb driver that leads to a use-after-free. An attacker able to add and remove USB devices could use this to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly for privilege escalation. * [CVE-2019-15216](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2019-15216) The syzkaller tool found a bug in the yurex driver that leads to a use-after-free. An attacker able to add and remove USB devices could use this to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly for privilege escalation. * [CVE-2019-15218](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2019-15218) The syzkaller tool found that the smsusb driver did not validate that USB devices have the expected endpoints, potentially leading to a null pointer dereference. An attacker able to add USB devices could use this to cause a denial of service (BUG/oops). * [CVE-2019-15219](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2019-15219) The syzkaller tool found that a device initialisation error in the sisusbvga driver could lead to a null pointer dereference. An attacker able to add USB devices could use this to cause a denial of service (BUG/oops). * [CVE-2019-15220](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2019-15220) The syzkaller tool found a race condition in the p54usb driver which could lead to a use-after-free. An attacker able to add and remove USB devices could use this to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly for privilege escalation. * [CVE-2019-15221](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2019-15221) The syzkaller tool found that the line6 driver did not validate USB devices' maximum packet sizes, which could lead to a heap buffer overrun. An attacker able to add USB devices could use this to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly for privilege escalation. * [CVE-2019-15292](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2019-15292) The Hulk Robot tool found missing error checks in the Appletalk protocol implementation, which could lead to a use-after-free. The security impact of this is unclear. * [CVE-2019-15538](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2019-15538) Benjamin Moody reported that operations on XFS hung after a chgrp command failed due to a disk quota. A local user on a system using XFS and disk quotas could use this for denial of service. * [CVE-2019-15666](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2019-15666) The Hulk Robot tool found an incorrect range check in the network transformation (xfrm) layer, leading to out-of-bounds memory accesses. A local user with CAP\_NET\_ADMIN capability (in any user namespace) could use this to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly for privilege escalation. * [CVE-2019-15807](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2019-15807) Jian Luo reported that the Serial Attached SCSI library (libsas) did not correctly handle failure to discover devices beyond a SAS expander. This could lead to a resource leak and crash (BUG). The security impact of this is unclear. * [CVE-2019-15924](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2019-15924) The Hulk Robot tool found a missing error check in the fm10k Ethernet driver, which could lead to a null pointer dereference and crash (BUG/oops). The security impact of this is unclear. * [CVE-2019-15926](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2019-15926) It was found that the ath6kl wifi driver did not consistently validate traffic class numbers in received control packets, leading to out-of-bounds memory accesses. A nearby attacker on the same wifi network could use this to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly for privilege escalation. For Debian 8 Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 4.9.189-3~deb8u1. We recommend that you upgrade your linux-4.9 packages.
