linux - 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. This update is unfortunately not available for the armel architecture. * [CVE-2018-1108](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2018-1108) It was discovered that the random driver could generate random bytes through /dev/random and the getrandom() system call before gathering enough entropy that these would be unpredictable. This could compromise the confidentiality and integrity of encrypted communications. The original fix for this issue had to be reverted because it caused the boot process to hang on many systems. In this version, the random driver has been updated, making it more effective in gathering entropy without needing a hardware RNG. * [CVE-2021-4149](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2021-4149) Hao Sun reported a flaw in the Btrfs fileysstem driver. There is a potential lock imbalance in an error path. A local user might be able to exploit this for denial of service. * [CVE-2021-39713](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2021-39713) The syzbot tool found a race condition in the network scheduling subsystem which could lead to a use-after-free. A local user could exploit this for denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly for privilege escalation. * [CVE-2022-0494](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-0494) The scsi\_ioctl() was susceptible to an information leak only exploitable by users with CAP\_SYS\_ADMIN or CAP\_SYS\_RAWIO capabilities. * [CVE-2022-0812](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-0812) It was discovered that the RDMA transport for NFS (xprtrdma) miscalculated the size of message headers, which could lead to a leak of sensitive information between NFS servers and clients. * [CVE-2022-0854](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-0854) Ali Haider discovered a potential information leak in the DMA subsystem. On systems where the swiotlb feature is needed, this might allow a local user to read sensitive information. * [CVE-2022-1011](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-1011) Jann Horn discovered a flaw in the FUSE (Filesystem in User-Space) implementation. A local user permitted to mount FUSE filesystems could exploit this to cause a use-after-free and read sensitive information. * [CVE-2022-1012](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-1012) , [CVE-2022-32296](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-32296) Moshe Kol, Amit Klein, and Yossi Gilad discovered a weakness in randomisation of TCP source port selection. * [CVE-2022-1016](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-1016) David Bouman discovered a flaw in the netfilter subsystem where the nft\_do\_chain function did not initialize register data that nf\_tables expressions can read from and write to. A local attacker can take advantage of this to read sensitive information. * [CVE-2022-1198](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-1198) Duoming Zhou discovered a race condition in the 6pack hamradio driver, which could lead to a use-after-free. A local user could exploit this to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly for privilege escalation. * [CVE-2022-1199](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-1199) Duoming Zhou discovered race conditions in the AX.25 hamradio protocol, which could lead to a use-after-free or null pointer dereference. A local user could exploit this to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly for privilege escalation. * [CVE-2022-1353](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-1353) The TCS Robot tool found an information leak in the PF\_KEY subsystem. A local user can receive a netlink message when an IPsec daemon registers with the kernel, and this could include sensitive information. * [CVE-2022-1516](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-1516) A NULL pointer dereference flaw in the implementation of the X.25 set of standardized network protocols, which can result in denial of service. This driver is not enabled in Debian's official kernel configurations. * [CVE-2022-1729](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-1729) Norbert Slusarek discovered a race condition in the perf subsystem which could result in local privilege escalation to root. The default settings in Debian prevent exploitation unless more permissive settings have been applied in the kernel.perf\_event\_paranoid sysctl. * [CVE-2022-1734](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-1734) Duoming Zhou discovered race conditions in the nfcmrvl NFC driver that could lead to a use-after-free, double-free or null pointer dereference. A local user might be able to exploit these for denial of service (crash or memory corruption) or possibly for privilege escalation. This driver is not enabled in Debian's official kernel configurations. * [CVE-2022-1974](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-1974) , [CVE-2022-1975](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-1975) Duoming Zhou discovered that the NFC netlink interface was suspectible to denial of service. * [CVE-2022-2153](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-2153) kangel reported a flaw in the KVM implementation for x86 processors which could lead to a null pointer dereference. A local user permitted to access /dev/kvm could exploit this to cause a denial of service (crash). * [CVE-2022-21123](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-21123) , [CVE-2022-21125](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-21125), [CVE-2022-21166](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-21166) Various researchers discovered flaws in Intel x86 processors, collectively referred to as MMIO Stale Data vulnerabilities. These are similar to the previously published Microarchitectural Data Sampling (MDS) issues and could be exploited by local users to leak sensitive information. For some CPUs, the mitigations for these issues require updated microcode. An updated intel-microcode package may be provided at a later date. The updated CPU microcode may also be available as part of a system firmware ("BIOS") update. Further information on the mitigation can be found at or in the linux-doc-4.9 package. * [CVE-2022-23036](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-23036) , [CVE-2022-23037](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-23037), [CVE-2022-23038](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-23038), [CVE-2022-23039](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-23039), [CVE-2022-23040](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-23040), [CVE-2022-23041](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-23041), [CVE-2022-23042](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-23042) (XSA-396) Demi Marie Obenour and Simon Gaiser of Invisible Things Lab discovered flaws in several Xen PV device frontends. These drivers misused the Xen grant table API in a way that could be exploited by a malicious device backend to cause data corruption, leaks of sensitive information, or a denial of service (crash). * [CVE-2022-23960](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-23960) Researchers at VUSec discovered that the Branch History Buffer in Arm processors can be exploited to create information side channels with speculative execution. This issue is similar to Spectre variant 2, but requires additional mitigations on some processors. This can be exploited to obtain sensitive information from a different security context, such as from user-space to the kernel, or from a KVM guest to the kernel. * [CVE-2022-24958](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-24958) A flaw was discovered that the USB gadget subsystem that could lead to a use-after-free. A local user permitted to configure USB gadgets could exploit this to cause a denial of service (crash or memory corruption) or possibly for privilege escalation. * [CVE-2022-26490](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-26490) Buffer overflows in the STMicroelectronics ST21NFCA core driver can result in denial of service or privilege escalation. This driver is not enabled in Debian's official kernel configurations. * [CVE-2022-26966](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-26966) A flaw was discovered in the sr9700 USB networking driver. A local user able to attach a specially designed USB device could use this to leak sensitive information. * [CVE-2022-27223](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-27223) A flaw was discovered in the udc-xilinx USB gadget-mode controller driver. On systems using this driver, a malicious USB host could exploit this to cause a denial of service (crash or memory corruption) or possibly to execute arbitrary code. This driver is not enabled in Debian's official kernel configurations. * [CVE-2022-28356](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-28356) Beraphin discovered that the ANSI/IEEE 802.2 LLC type 2 driver did not properly perform reference counting on some error paths. A local attacker can take advantage of this flaw to cause a denial of service. * [CVE-2022-28390](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-28390) A double free vulnerability was discovered in the EMS CPC-USB/ARM7 CAN/USB interface driver. * [CVE-2022-30594](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-30594) Jann Horn discovered a flaw in the interaction between ptrace and seccomp subsystems. A process sandboxed using seccomp() but still permitted to use ptrace() could exploit this to remove the seccomp restrictions. * [CVE-2022-32250](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-32250) Aaron Adams discovered a use-after-free in Netfilter which may result in local privilege escalation to root. * [CVE-2022-33981](https://security-tracker.debian.org/tracker/CVE-2022-33981) Yuan Ming from Tsinghua University reported a a race condition in the floppy driver involving use of the FDRAWCMD ioctl, which could lead to a use-after-free. A local user with access to a floppy drive device could exploit this to cause a denial of service (crash or memory corruption) or possibly for privilege escalation. This ioctl is now disabled by default. For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version 4.9.320-2. For the armhf architecture, this update enables optimised implementations of several cryptographic and CRC algorithms. For at least AES, this should remove a timing side-channel that could lead to a leak of sensitive information. This update includes many more bug fixes from stable updates 4.9.304-4.9.320 inclusive. The random driver has been backported from Linux 5.19, fixing numerous performance and correctness issues. Some changes will be visible: - The entropy pool size is now 256 bits instead of 4096. You may need to adjust the configuration of system monitoring or user-space entropy gathering services to allow for this. - On systems without a hardware RNG, the kernel will log many more uses of /dev/urandom before it is fully initialised. These uses were previously under-counted and this is not a regression. We recommend that you upgrade your linux packages.
