Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 10 vulnerabilities.

1) Input validation error

EUVDB-ID: #VU61215

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-43976

CWE-ID: CWE-20 - Improper Input Validation

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input within the mwifiex_usb_recv() function in drivers/net/wireless/marvell/mwifiex/usb.c in Linux kernel. An attacker with physical access to the system can insert a specially crafted USB device and perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

Mitigation

Update linux package to version 5.10.92-2.

Vulnerable software versions

Debian Linux: All versions

linux (Debian package): before 5.10.92-2

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-0330

CWE-ID: CWE-119 - Memory corruption

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to a random memory access flaw caused by a missing TLB flush in Linux kernel GPU i915 kernel driver functionality. A local user can execute arbitrary code on the system with elevated privileges.

3) Stack-based buffer overflow

EUVDB-ID: #VU61216

Risk: High

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-0435

CWE-ID: CWE-121 - Stack-based buffer overflow

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary error in the Linux kernel networking module for the Transparent Inter-Process Communication (TIPC) protocol. A remote unauthenticated attacker can send specially crafted traffic to the system, trigger a stack-based buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may result in complete compromise of vulnerable system but requires that the TIPC bearer is set up.

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-0516

CWE-ID: CWE-787 - Out-of-bounds write

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary error in kvm_s390_guest_sida_op() function in the arch/s390/kvm/kvm-s390.c in KVM for s390 in the Linux kernel. A local user can trigger an out-of-bounds write and escalate privileges on the system.

5) Use of uninitialized resource

EUVDB-ID: #VU61110

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-0847

CWE-ID: CWE-908 - Use of Uninitialized Resource

Exploit availability: Yes

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to usage of an uninitialized resources. A local user can overwrite arbitrary file in the page cache, even if the file is read-only, and execute arbitrary code on the system with elevated privileges.

The vulnerability was dubbed Dirty Pipe.

Mitigation

Update linux package to version 5.10.92-2.

6) Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls

EUVDB-ID: #VU61217

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-22942

CWE-ID: CWE-264 - Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to an error in the vmwgfx driver in Linux kernel. A local unprivileged user can gain access to files opened by other processes on the system through a dangling 'file' pointer.

Exploiting this vulnerability requires an attacker to have access to either /dev/dri/card0 or /dev/dri/rendererD128 and be able to issue an ioctl() on the resulting file descriptor.

Mitigation

Update linux package to version 5.10.92-2.

7) Missing initialization of resource

EUVDB-ID: #VU61211

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-24448

CWE-ID: CWE-909 - Missing initialization of resource

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to missing initialization of resource within the fs/nfs/dir.c in the Linux kernel. If an application sets the O_DIRECTORY flag, and tries to open a regular file, nfs_atomic_open() performs a regular lookup. If a regular file is found, ENOTDIR should occur, but the server instead returns uninitialized data in the file descriptor.

Mitigation

Update linux package to version 5.10.92-2.

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-24959

CWE-ID: CWE-401 - Improper Release of Memory Before Removing Last Reference ('Memory Leak')

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to memory leak within the yam_siocdevprivate() function in drivers/net/hamradio/yam.c. A local user can perform a denial of service attack.

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-25258

CWE-ID: CWE-476 - NULL Pointer Dereference

Exploit availability: No

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to a NULL pointer dereference error drivers/usb/gadget/composite.c in the Linux kernel. The USB Gadget subsystem lacks certain validation of interface OS descriptor requests (ones with a large array index and ones associated with NULL function pointer retrieval). A local user can run a specially crafted program to trigger memory corruption and perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

Mitigation

Update linux package to version 5.10.92-2.

Exploit availability: Yes

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to improper access restrictions in drivers/usb/gadget/function/rndis.c in the Linux kernel. The RNDIS USB gadget lacks validation of the size of the RNDIS_MSG_SET command. A local user can run a specially crafted program to gain access to kernel memory.
