32 description: |
33 This kernel update provides the upstream 4.14.119 that adds the kernel side
34 mitigations for the Microarchitectural Data Sampling (MDS, also called
35 ZombieLoad attack) vulnerabilities in Intel processors that can allow
36 attackers to retrieve data being processed inside a CPU. To complete the
37 mitigations new microcode is also needed, either by installing the
38 microcode-0.20190514-1.mga6 package, or get an updated bios / uefi
39 firmware from the motherboard vendor.
41 The fixed / mitigated issues are:
43 Modern Intel microprocessors implement hardware-level micro-optimizations
44 to improve the performance of writing data back to CPU caches. The write
45 operation is split into STA (STore Address) and STD (STore Data)
46 sub-operations. These sub-operations allow the processor to hand-off
47 address generation logic into these sub-operations for optimized writes.
48 Both of these sub-operations write to a shared distributed processor
49 structure called the 'processor store buffer'. As a result, an
50 unprivileged attacker could use this flaw to read private data resident
51 within the CPU's processor store buffer. (CVE-2018-12126)
53 Microprocessors use a ‘load port’ subcomponent to perform load operations
54 from memory or IO. During a load operation, the load port receives data
55 from the memory or IO subsystem and then provides the data to the CPU
56 registers and operations in the CPU’s pipelines. Stale load operations
57 results are stored in the 'load port' table until overwritten by newer
58 operations. Certain load-port operations triggered by an attacker can be
59 used to reveal data about previous stale requests leaking data back to the
60 attacker via a timing side-channel. (CVE-2018-12127)
62 A flaw was found in the implementation of the "fill buffer", a mechanism
63 used by modern CPUs when a cache-miss is made on L1 CPU cache. If an
64 attacker can generate a load operation that would create a page fault,
65 the execution will continue speculatively with incorrect data from the
66 fill buffer while the data is fetched from higher level caches. This
67 response time can be measured to infer data in the fill buffer.
68 (CVE-2018-12130)
70 Uncacheable memory on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution
71 may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure
72 via a side channel with local access. (CVE-2019-11091)
75 It also fixes atleast the following security issues:
77 Cross-hyperthread Spectre v2 mitigation is now provided by the Single
78 Thread Indirect Branch Predictors (STIBP) support. Note that STIBP also
79 requires the functionality be supported by the Intel microcode in use.
81 It was found that cephx authentication protocol did not verify ceph clients
82 correctly and was vulnerable to replay attack. Any attacker having access
83 to ceph cluster network who is able to sniff packets on network can use
84 this vulnerability to authenticate with ceph service and perform actions
85 allowed by ceph service (CVE-2018-1128).
87 A flaw was found in the way signature calculation was handled by cephx
88 authentication protocol. An attacker having access to ceph cluster network
89 who is able to alter the message payload was able to bypass signature
90 checks done by cephx protocol (CVE-2018-1129).
92 A flaw was found in the Linux Kernel where an attacker may be able to have
93 an uncontrolled read to kernel-memory from within a vm guest. A race
94 condition between connect() and close() function may allow an attacker
95 using the AF_VSOCK protocol to gather a 4 byte information leak or possibly
96 intercept or corrupt AF_VSOCK messages destined to other clients
97 (CVE-2018-14625).
99 A security flaw was found in the Linux kernel in a way that the cleancache
100 subsystem clears an inode after the final file truncation (removal). The
101 new file created with the same inode may contain leftover pages from
102 cleancache and the old file data instead of the new one (CVE-2018-16862).
104 A use-after-free issue was found in the way the Linux kernel's KVM
105 hypervisor processed posted interrupts when nested(=1) virtualization is
106 enabled. In nested_get_vmcs12_pages(), in case of an error while
107 processing posted interrupt address, it unmaps the 'pi_desc_page' without
108 resetting 'pi_desc' descriptor address, which is later used in
109 pi_test_and_clear_on(). A guest user/process could use this flaw to crash
110 the host kernel resulting in DoS or potentially gain privileged access to
111 a system (CVE-2018-16882).
113 A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's NFS41+ subsystem. NFS41+ shares
114 mounted in different network namespaces at the same time can make
115 bc_svc_process() use wrong back-channel IDs and cause a use-after-free
116 vulnerability. Thus a malicious container user can cause a host kernel
117 memory corruption and a system panic. Due to the nature of the flaw,
118 privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out (CVE-2018-16884).
120 The userfaultfd implementation in the Linux kernel before 4.19.7 mishandles
121 access control for certain UFFDIO_ ioctl calls, as demonstrated by allowing
122 local users to write data into holes in a tmpfs file (if the user has
123 read-only access to that file, and that file contains holes)
124 (CVE-2018-18397).
126 In the Linux kernel through 4.19.6, a local user could exploit a
127 use-after-free in the ALSA driver by supplying a malicious USB Sound device
128 (with zero interfaces) (CVE-2018-19824).
130 A flaw was found in the Linux kernel in the function hso_probe() which
131 reads if_num value from the USB device (as an u8) and uses it without a
132 length check to index an array, resulting in an OOB memory read in
133 hso_probe() or hso_get_config_data(). An attacker with a forged USB
134 device and physical access to a system (needed to connect such a device)
135 can cause a system crash and a denial of service (CVE-2018-19985).
137 Linux Linux kernel version at least v4.8 onwards, probably well before
138 contains a Insufficient input validation vulnerability in bnx2x network
139 card driver that can result in DoS: Network card firmware assertion takes
140 card off-line. This attack appear to be exploitable via An attacker on a
141 must pass a very large, specially crafted packet to the bnx2x card.
142 This can be done from an untrusted guest VM (CVE-2018-1000026)
144 An issue was discovered in can_can_gw_rcv in net/can/gw.c in the Linux
145 kernel through 4.19.13. The CAN frame modification rules allow bitwise
146 logical operations that can be also applied to the can_dlc field. Because
147 of a missing check, the CAN drivers may write arbitrary content beyond
148 the data registers in the CAN controller's I/O memory when processing
149 can-gw manipulated outgoing frames. This is related to cgw_csum_xor_rel.
150 An unprivileged user can trigger a system crash (general protection fault)
151 (CVE-2019-3701).
153 A flaw was found in the Linux kernel in the function hid_debug_events_read()
154 in drivers/hid/hid-debug.c file which may enter an infinite loop with
155 certain parameters passed from a userspace. A local privileged user ("root")
156 can cause a system lock up and a denial of service (CVE-2019-3819).
157 A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's vfio interface implementation that
158 permits violation of the user's locked memory limit. If a device is bound
159 to a vfio driver, such as vfio-pci, and the local attacker is
160 administratively granted ownership of the device, it may cause a system
161 memory exhaustion and thus a denial of service (DoS) (CVE-2019-3882).
163 In the Linux kernel before 4.20.8, kvm_ioctl_create_device in
164 virt/kvm/kvm_main.c mishandles reference counting because of a race
165 condition, leading to a use-after-free (CVE-2019-6974).
167 A use-after-free vulnerability was found in the way the Linux kernel's KVM
168 hypervisor emulates a preemption timer for L2 guests when nested (=1)
169 virtualization is enabled. This high resolution timer(hrtimer) runs when
170 a L2 guest is active. After VM exit, the sync_vmcs12() timer object is
171 stopped. The use-after-free occurs if the timer object is freed before
172 calling sync_vmcs12() routine. A guest user/process could use this flaw
173 to crash the host kernel resulting in a denial of service or, potentially,
174 gain privileged access to a system (CVE-2019-7221).
176 An information leakage issue was found in the way Linux kernel's KVM
177 hypervisor handled page fault exceptions while emulating instructions
178 like VMXON, VMCLEAR, VMPTRLD, and VMWRITE with memory address as an
179 operand. It occurs if the operand is a mmio address, as the returned
180 exception object holds uninitialized stack memory contents. A guest
181 user/process could use this flaw to leak host's stack memory contents
182 to a guest (CVE-2019-7222).
184 kernel/bpf/verifier.c in the Linux kernel before 4.20.6 performs undesirable
185 out-of-bounds speculation on pointer arithmetic in various cases, including
186 cases of different branches with different state or limits to sanitize,
187 leading to side-channel attacks (CVE-2019-7308).
189 In the Linux kernel before 4.20.14, expand_downwards in mm/mmap.c lacks
190 a check for the mmap minimum address, which makes it easier for attackers
191 to exploit kernel NULL pointer dereferences on non-SMAP platforms. This is
192 related to a capability check for the wrong task (CVE-2019-9213).
194 The Siemens R3964 line discipline driver in drivers/tty/n_r3964.c in the
195 Linux kernel before 5.0.8 has multiple race conditions (CVE-2019-11486).
197 The coredump implementation in the Linux kernel before 5.0.10 does not use
198 locking or other mechanisms to prevent vma layout or vma flags changes while
199 it runs, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information, cause a
200 denial of service, or possibly have unspecified other impact by triggering
201 a race condition with mmget_not_zero or get_task_mm calls (CVE-2019-11599).
203 It also fixes signal handling issues causing powertop to crash and some
204 tracing tools to fail on execve tests.
206 Ndiswrapper has been updated to 1.62
208 WireGuard has been updated to 0.0.20190406.
