Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 4 vulnerabilities.

1) Improper access control

EUVDB-ID: #VU63923

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-4037

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 in the fs/inode.c:inode_init_owner() function logic of the Linux kernel. A local user can create files for the XFS file-system with an unintended group ownership and with group execution and SGID permission bits set to bypass implemented security restrictions and gain unauthorized access to the application.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

2) Use of insufficiently random values

EUVDB-ID: #VU63839

Risk: Medium

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2021-20322

CWE-ID: CWE-330 - Use of Insufficiently Random Values

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to gain access to sensitive information.

3) Heap-based buffer overflow

EUVDB-ID: #VU61672

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-27666

CWE-ID: CWE-122 - Heap-based Buffer Overflow

Exploit availability: Yes

Description

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

The vulnerability exists due to a boundary error within IPsec ESP transformation code in net/ipv4/esp4.c and net/ipv6/esp6.c in Linux kernel. A local unprivileged user can pass specially crafted data to the system, trigger a heap-based buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

4) Security restrictions bypass

EUVDB-ID: #VU13631

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2018-13405

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

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a local attacker to create arbitrary files on the target system.

The vulnerability exists due to the inode_init_owner function, as defined in the fs/inode.c source code file, allows the creation of arbitrary files in set-group identification (SGID) directories. A local attacker can create arbitrary files with unintended group ownership.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.
