Security update for the Linux Kernel (important)






The openSUSE Leap 42.2 kernel was updated to 4.4.36 to receive various
security and bugfixes.

The following security bugs were fixed:

  • CVE-2015-1350: The VFS subsystem in the Linux kernel 3.x provides an
    incomplete set of requirements for setattr operations that
    underspecifies removing extended privilege attributes, which allowed
    local users to cause a denial of service (capability stripping) via a
    failed invocation of a system call, as demonstrated by using chown to
    remove a capability from the ping or Wireshark dumpcap program
  • CVE-2015-8964: The tty_set_termios_ldisc function in
    drivers/tty/tty_ldisc.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to
    obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by reading a tty data
    structure (bnc#1010507).
  • CVE-2016-7042: The proc_keys_show function in security/keys/proc.c in
    the Linux kernel through 4.8.2, when the GNU Compiler Collection (gcc)
    stack protector is enabled, uses an incorrect buffer size for certain
    timeout data, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service
    (stack memory corruption and panic) by reading the /proc/keys file
  • CVE-2016-7913: The xc2028_set_config function in
    drivers/media/tuners/tuner-xc2028.c in the Linux kernel allowed local
    users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free)
    via vectors involving omission of the firmware name from a certain data
    structure (bnc#1010478).
  • CVE-2016-7917: The nfnetlink_rcv_batch function in
    net/netfilter/nfnetlink.c in the Linux kernel did not check whether a
    batch message’s length field is large enough, which allowed local users
    to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory or cause a denial of
    service (infinite loop or out-of-bounds read) by leveraging the
    CAP_NET_ADMIN capability (bnc#1010444).
  • CVE-2016-8632: The tipc_msg_build function in net/tipc/msg.c in the
    Linux kernel did not validate the relationship between the minimum
    fragment length and the maximum packet size, which allowed local users
    to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer
    overflow) by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability (bnc#1008831).
  • CVE-2016-8655: A race condition in the af_packet packet_set_ring
    function could be used by local attackers to crash the kernel or gain
    privileges (bsc#1012754).
  • CVE-2016-8666: The IP stack in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers
    to cause a denial of service (stack consumption and panic) or possibly
    have unspecified other impact by triggering use of the GRO path for
    packets with tunnel stacking, as demonstrated by interleaved IPv4
    headers and GRE headers, a related issue to CVE-2016-7039 (bnc#1001486).
  • CVE-2016-9083: drivers/vfio/pci/vfio_pci.c in the Linux kernel allowed
    local users to bypass integer overflow checks, and cause a denial of
    service (memory corruption) or have unspecified other impact, by
    leveraging access to a vfio PCI device file for a VFIO_DEVICE_SET_IRQS
    ioctl call, aka a "state machine confusion bug (bnc#1007197).
  • CVE-2016-9084: drivers/vfio/pci/vfio_pci_intrs.c in the Linux kernel
    misuses the kzalloc function, which allowed local users to cause a
    denial of service (integer overflow) or have unspecified other impact by
    leveraging access to a vfio PCI device file (bnc#1007197).
  • CVE-2016-9555: The sctp_sf_ootb function in net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c in
    the Linux kernel lacks chunk-length checking for the first chunk, which
    allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds
    slab access) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted SCTP
    data (bnc#1011685).
  • CVE-2016-9794: A use-after-free in alsa pcm could lead to crashes or
    allowed local users to potentially gain privileges (bsc#1013533).

  • rpm/ Build against SP2 in the OBS as well
  • rpm/ increase disk for kernel-syzkaller The
    kernel-syzkaller build now consumes around 30G. This causes headache in
    factory where the package rebuilds over and over. Require 35G disk size
    to successfully build the flavor.

    CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO sub-options are answered in the configs nowadays.

    stale entry for the old overlayfs.

  • tg3: Avoid NULL pointer dereference in tg3_io_error_detected()
    (bsc#963609 FATE#320143).

  • Whitelist KVM KABI changes resulting from adding a hcall. caused by
    5246adec59458b5d325b8e1462ea9ef3ead7f6ae powerpc/pseries: Use
    H_CLEAR_HPT to clear MMU hash table during kexec No problem is expected
    as result of changing KVM KABI so whitelisting for now. If we get some
    additional input from IBM we can back out the patch.
  • writeback: initialize inode members that track writeback history
  • x86/apic: Order irq_enter/exit() calls correctly vs. ack_APIC_irq()
  • x86/efi: Enable runtime call flag checking (bsc#1005745).
  • x86/efi: Move to generic {__,}efi_call_virt() (bsc#1005745).

    (fate#320474, bsc#1013700). Exclude removed symbols from kABI check.
    They’re AMD Zen relevant only and completely useless to other modules -
    only edac_mce_amd.ko.

  • x86/mce/AMD: Read MSRs on the CPU allocating the threshold blocks
    (fate#320474, bsc#1013700).
