USN-5831-1: Linux kernel (Azure CVM) vulnerabilities

2023-01-28 KENNETH 0

USN-5831-1: Linux kernel (Azure CVM) vulnerabilities Kyle Zeng discovered that the sysctl implementation in the Linux kernel contained a stack-based buffer overflow. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-4378) Tamás Koczka discovered that the Bluetooth L2CAP handshake implementation in the Linux kernel contained multiple use-after-free vulnerabilities. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-42896) It was discovered that the Xen netback driver in the Linux kernel did not properly handle packets structured in certain ways. An attacker in a guest VM could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (host NIC availability). (CVE-2022-3643) It was discovered that an integer overflow vulnerability existed in the Bluetooth subsystem in the Linux kernel. A physically proximate [ more… ]

USN-5822-2: Samba regression

2023-01-27 KENNETH 0

USN-5822-2: Samba regression USN-5822-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Samba. The update for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS introduced regressions in certain environments. Pending investigation of these regressions, this update temporarily reverts the security fixes. We apologize for the inconvenience. Original advisory details: It was discovered that Samba incorrectly handled the bad password count logic. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to bypass bad passwords lockouts. This issue was only addressed in Ubuntu 22.10. (CVE-2021-20251) Evgeny Legerov discovered that Samba incorrectly handled buffers in certain GSSAPI routines of Heimdal. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause Samba to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2022-3437) Tom Tervoort discovered that Samba incorrectly used weak rc4-hmac Kerberos keys. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to elevate privileges. (CVE-2022-37966, CVE-2022-37967) It was discovered that Samba supported weak RC4/HMAC-MD5 in [ more… ]

USN-5828-1: Kerberos vulnerabilities

2023-01-26 KENNETH 0

USN-5828-1: Kerberos vulnerabilities It was discovered that Kerberos incorrectly handled certain S4U2Self requests. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a denial of service. This issue was only addressed in Ubuntu 16.04 ESM and Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. (CVE-2018-20217) Greg Hudson discovered that Kerberos PAC implementation incorrectly handled certain parsing operations. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-42898) Source: USN-5828-1: Kerberos vulnerabilities
