Kernel security update: CVE-2017-11600 and other; Virtuozzo ReadyKernel patch 27.0 for Virtuozzo 7.0.4 and 7.0.4 HF3¶
Issue date: 2017-08-04
Applies to: Virtuozzo 7.0
Virtuozzo Advisory ID: VZA-2017-068
The cumulative Virtuozzo ReadyKernel patch was updated with security and stability fixes. The patch applies to Virtuozzo kernels 3.10.0-514.16.1.vz7.30.10 (Virtuozzo 7.0.4) and 3.10.0-514.16.1.vz7.30.15 (Virtuozzo 7.0.4 HF3).
2. Security Fixes¶
[Moderate] A vulnerability was found in the handling of xfrm Netlink messages. A privileged user inside a container could cause a denial of service (kernel crash) by sending a crafted Netlink message with type XFRM_MSG_MIGRATE to the kernel. (CVE-2017-11600)
[Moderate] Integer overflow vulnerability in ip6_find_1stfragopt() function was found. Local attacker that has privileges to open raw sockets can cause infinite loop inside ip6_find_1stfragopt() function. (CVE-2017-7542)
[Moderate] Kernel memory corruption due to a buffer overflow was found in brcmf_cfg80211_mgmt_tx() function in Linux kernels from v3.9-rc1 to v4.13-rc1. The vulnerability can be triggered by sending a crafted NL80211_CMD_FRAME packet via netlink. An unprivileged local user could use this flaw to induce kernel memory corruption on the system, leading to a crash. (CVE-2017-7541)
3. Bug Fixes¶
Division by zero in dcache_is_low(). (PSBM-69018)
It was discovered that lseek(SEEK_DATA) and lseek(SEEK_HOLE) returned incorrect values on ext4 filesystem in some cases, causing corruption of QCOW2 disk images used by VMs. (PSBM-68292)
venet: netdevice structures were not always freed (memory leak). (PSBM-65033)
