Package : linux
CVE ID : CVE-2015-0272 CVE-2015-2925 CVE-2015-5156 CVE-2015-6252
Debian Bug : 796036
Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that
may lead to a privilege escalation or denial of service.
It was discovered that NetworkManager would set IPv6 MTUs based on
the values received in IPv6 RAs (Router Advertisements), without
sufficiently validating these values. A remote attacker could
exploit this attack to disable IPv6 connectivity. This has been
mitigated by adding validation in the kernel.
Jann Horn discovered that when a subdirectory of a filesystem is
bind-mounted into a container that has its own user and mount
namespaces, a process with CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability in the user
namespace can access files outside of the subdirectory. The
default Debian configuration mitigated this as it does not allow
unprivileged users to create new user namespaces.
Jason Wang discovered that when a virtio_net device is connected
to a bridge in the same VM, a series of TCP packets forwarded
through the bridge may cause a heap buffer overflow. A remote
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (crash) or
possibly for privilege escalation.
Michael S. Tsirkin of Red Hat Engineering found that the vhost
driver leaked file descriptors passed to it with the
VHOST_SET_LOG_FD ioctl command. A privileged local user with access
to the /dev/vhost-net file, either directly or via libvirt, could
use this to cause a denial of service (hang or crash).
It was found that the Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS) protocol
implementation did not verify that an underlying transport exists
when creating a connection. Depending on how a local RDS
application initialised its sockets, a remote attacker might be
able to cause a denial of service (crash) by sending a crafted
Xavier Chantry discovered that the patch provided by the aufs
project to correct behaviour of memory-mapped files from an aufs
mount introduced a race condition in the msync() system call.
Ben Hutchings found that it also introduced a similar bug in the
madvise_remove() function. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service or possibly for privilege escalation.
For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed
in version 3.2.68-1+deb7u4. CVE-2015-2925 and #796036 do not affect the
For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
We recommend that you upgrade your linux packages.
