Security Advisory

1) Inclusion of Sensitive Information in Log Files

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1: 4.8 [CVSS:3.1/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-3447

CWE-ID: CWE-532 - Information Exposure Through Log Files

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to software stores sensitive information into log files. A flaw was found in several ansible modules, where parameters containing credentials, such as secrets, were being logged in plain-text on managed nodes, as well as being made visible on the controller node when run in verbose mode. These parameters were not protected by the no_log feature. A local user can read the log files and gain access to sensitive data.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-33034

CWE-ID: CWE-416 - Use After Free

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to escalate privileges on the system.

The vulnerability exists due to a use-after-free error in net/bluetooth/hci_event.c when destroying an hci_chan. A local user can escalate privileges on the system.

4) Integer overflow

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1: 7.9 [CVSS:3.1/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:P/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-33909

CWE-ID: CWE-190 - Integer Overflow or Wraparound

Exploit availability: Yes

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to escalate privileges on the system.

The vulnerability exists due to integer overflow during size_t-to-int conversion when creating, mounting, and deleting a deep directory structure whose total path length exceeds 1GB. An unprivileged local user can write up to 10-byte string to an offset of exactly -2GB-10B below the beginning of a vmalloc()ated kernel buffer.

Successful exploitation of vulnerability may allow an attacker to exploit the our-of-bounds write vulnerability to execute arbitrary code with root privileges.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.
