Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 3 vulnerabilities.

1) Buffer overflow

EUVDB-ID: #VU56018

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-22543

CWE-ID: CWE-119 - Memory corruption

Exploit availability: Yes

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary error in Linux kernel when handling VM_IO|VM_PFNMAP vmas in KVM. A local user can  can bypass RO checks and cause the pages to get freed while still accessible by the VMM and guest. As a result, an attacker with the ability to start and control a VM to read/write random pages of memory, can trigger memory corruption and execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.


Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.
