|Title:||Debian LTS: Security Advisory for linux-4.9 (DLA-1771-1)|
|Summary:||The remote host is missing an update for the 'linux-4.9'; package(s) announced via the DLA-1771-1 advisory.|
The remote host is missing an update for the 'linux-4.9'
package(s) announced via the DLA-1771-1 advisory.
Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that
may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service or information
A use-after-free bug was found in the vhost driver for the Virtual
Socket protocol. If this driver is used to communicate with a
malicious virtual machine guest, the guest could read sensitive
information from the host kernel.
A flaw was found in the NFS 4.1 client implementation. Mounting
NFS shares in multiple network namespaces at the same time could
lead to a user-after-free. Local users might be able to use this
for denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or possibly
for privilege escalation.
This can be mitigated by disabling unprivileged users from
creating user namespaces, which is the default in Debian.
Hui Peng and Mathias Payer discovered a use-after-free bug in the
USB audio driver. A physically present attacker able to attach a
specially designed USB device could use this for privilege
Hui Peng and Mathias Payer discovered a missing bounds check in the
hso USB serial driver. A physically present user able to attach a
specially designed USB device could use this to read sensitive
information from the kernel or to cause a denial of service
Hui Peng and Mathias Payer discovered missing bounds checks in the
USB core. A physically present attacker able to attach a specially
designed USB device could use this to cause a denial of service
(crash) or possibly for privilege escalation.
It was discovered that Linux could forward aggregated network
packets with a segmentation size too large for the output device.
In the specific case of Broadcom NetXtremeII 10Gb adapters, this
would result in a denial of service (firmware crash). This update
adds a mitigation to the bnx2x driver for this hardware.
Shlomi Oberman, Yuli Shapiro and Karamba Security Ltd. research
team discovered missing range checks in the Bluetooth L2CAP
implementation. If Bluetooth is enabled, a nearby attacker
could use these to read sensitive information from the kernel.
Muyu Yu and Marcus Meissner reported that the CAN gateway
implementation allowed the frame length to be modified, typically
resulting in out-of-bounds memory-mapped I/O writes. On a system
with CAN devices present, a local user with CAP_NET_ADMIN
capability in the initial net namespace could use this to cause a
crash (oops) or other hardware-dependent impact.
A potential infinite loop was discovered in the HID debugfs
interface exposed under ...
Description truncated. Please see the references for more information.
'linux-4.9' package(s) on Debian Linux.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version
deb8u1. This version also includes fixes for Debian bugs
#904385, #918103, and #922306, and other fixes included in upstream
We recommend that you upgrade your linux-4.9 and linux-latest-4.9
packages. You will need to use 'apt-get upgrade --with-new-pkgs'
or 'apt upgrade' as the binary package names have changed.
