Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 4 vulnerabilities.

1) Resource management error

EUVDB-ID: #VU22704

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-11135

CWE-ID: CWE-399 - Resource Management Errors

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to gain access to potentially sensitive information.

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary condition within the TSX Asynchronous Abort (TAA) in Intel CPUs. The TAA condition, on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution, may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via a side channel.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

2) Infinite loop

EUVDB-ID: #VU19998

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-3900

CWE-ID: CWE-835 - Loop with Unreachable Exit Condition ('Infinite Loop')

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

The vulnerability exists due to infinite loop in vhost_net kernel module when processing incoming packets in handle_rx(). A remote attacker with access to guest operating system can stall the vhost_net kernel thread and cause denial of service conditions.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

3) Improper access control

EUVDB-ID: #VU22743

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-0154

CWE-ID: CWE-284 - Improper Access Control

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to gain unauthorized access to otherwise restricted functionality.

The vulnerability exists due to improper access restrictions. A local user with the ability to issue an ioctl can trigger a hardware level crash if MMIO registers were read while the graphics card was in a low-power state and cause a denial of service (DoS) on the target system.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

4) Buffer overflow

EUVDB-ID: #VU22712

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2018-12207

CWE-ID: CWE-119 - Memory corruption

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to perform denial of service (DoS) attack.

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary error in the mechanism responsible for error handling on some Intel platforms. A local user of a guest operating system can use a specially crafted application to trigger memory corruption and cause the host system to stop responding.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may result in a denial of service (DoS) attack.
