USN-5090-4: Apache HTTP Server regression

2021-09-29 KENNETH 0

USN-5090-4: Apache HTTP Server regression USN-5090-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Apache HTTP Server. One of the upstream fixes introduced a regression in UDS URIs. This update fixes the problem. Original advisory details: James Kettle discovered that the Apache HTTP Server HTTP/2 module incorrectly handled certain crafted methods. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to perform request splitting or cache poisoning attacks. (CVE-2021-33193) It was discovered that the Apache HTTP Server incorrectly handled certain malformed requests. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause the server to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2021-34798) Li Zhi Xin discovered that the Apache mod_proxy_uwsgi module incorrectly handled certain request uri-paths. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause the server to crash, resulting in a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and Ubuntu [ more… ]

USN-5093-1: Vim vulnerabilities Brian Carpenter discovered that vim incorrectly handled memory when opening certain files. If a user was tricked into opening a specially crafted file, a remote attacker could crash the application, leading to a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges. This issue only affected Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and Ubuntu 21.04. (CVE-2021-3770) Brian Carpenter discovered that vim incorrectly handled memory when opening certain files. If a user was tricked into opening a specially crafted file, a remote attacker could crash the application, leading to a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges. (CVE-2021-3778) Dhiraj Mishra discovered that vim incorrectly handled memory when opening certain files. If a user was tricked into opening a specially crafted file, a remote attacker could crash the application, leading to a denial of service, or [ more… ]

USN-5092-1: Linux kernel vulnerabilities

2021-09-28 KENNETH 0

USN-5092-1: Linux kernel vulnerabilities Valentina Palmiotti discovered that the io_uring subsystem in the Linux kernel could be coerced to free adjacent memory. A local attacker could use this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-41073) Ofek Kirzner, Adam Morrison, Benedict Schlueter, and Piotr Krysiuk discovered that the BPF verifier in the Linux kernel missed possible mispredicted branches due to type confusion, allowing a side-channel attack. An attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2021-33624) Benedict Schlueter discovered that the BPF subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly protect against Speculatively Store Bypass (SSB) side- channel attacks in some situations. A local attacker could possibly use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2021-34556) Piotr Krysiuk discovered that the BPF subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly protect against Speculatively Store Bypass (SSB) side-channel attacks in some situations.

USN-5091-1: Linux kernel vulnerabilities Ofek Kirzner, Adam Morrison, Benedict Schlueter, and Piotr Krysiuk discovered that the BPF verifier in the Linux kernel missed possible mispredicted branches due to type confusion, allowing a side-channel attack. An attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2021-33624) It was discovered that the tracing subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly keep track of per-cpu ring buffer state. A privileged attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2021-3679) Alexey Kardashevskiy discovered that the KVM implementation for PowerPC systems in the Linux kernel did not properly validate RTAS arguments in some situations. An attacker in a guest vm could use this to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-37576) It was discovered that the Virtio console implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly [ more… ]
