 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:194
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : kernel
 Date    : July 11, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in the Linux
 kernel:
 
 net/ceph/auth_none.c in the Linux kernel through 3.10 allows remote
 attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference
 and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via
 an auth_reply message that triggers an attempted build_request
 operation. (CVE-2013-1059)
 
 The HP Smart Array controller disk-array driver and Compaq SMART2
 controller disk-array driver in the Linux kernel through 3.9.4
 do not initialize certain data structures, which allows local
 users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via (1)
 a crafted IDAGETPCIINFO command for a /dev/ida device, related
 to the ida_locked_ioctl function in drivers/block/cpqarray.c
 or (2) a crafted CCISS_PASSTHRU32 command for a /dev/cciss
 device, related to the cciss_ioctl32_passthru function in
 drivers/block/cciss.c. (CVE-2013-2147)
 
 The fill_event_metadata function in fs/notify/fanotify/fanotify_user.c
 in the Linux kernel through 3.9.4 does not initialize a certain
 structure member, which allows local users to obtain sensitive
 information from kernel memory via a read operation on the fanotify
 descriptor. (CVE-2013-2148)
 
 Format string vulnerability in the register_disk function in
 block/genhd.c in the Linux kernel through 3.9.4 allows local users to
 gain privileges by leveraging root access and writing format string
 specifiers to /sys/module/md_mod/parameters/new_array in order to
 create a crafted /dev/md device name. (CVE-2013-2851)
 
 The mmc_ioctl_cdrom_read_data function in drivers/cdrom/cdrom.c in
 the Linux kernel through 3.10 allows local users to obtain sensitive
 information from kernel memory via a read operation on a malfunctioning
 CD-ROM drive. (CVE-2013-2164)
 
 The key_notify_policy_flush function in net/key/af_key.c in the Linux
 kernel before 3.9 does not initialize a certain structure member,
 which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel
 heap memory by reading a broadcast message from the notify_policy
 interface of an IPSec key_socket. (CVE-2013-2237)
 
 The (1) key_notify_sa_flush and (2) key_notify_policy_flush functions
 in net/key/af_key.c in the Linux kernel before 3.10 do not initialize
 certain structure members, which allows local users to obtain sensitive
 information from kernel heap memory by reading a broadcast message
 from the notify interface of an IPSec key_socket. (CVE-2013-2234)
 
 The ip6_sk_dst_check function in net/ipv6/ip6_output.c in the Linux
 kernel before 3.10 allows local users to cause a denial of service
 (system crash) by using an AF_INET6 socket for a connection to an
 IPv4 interface. (CVE-2013-2232)
 
 The online_pages function in mm/memory_hotplug.c in the Linux kernel
 before 3.6 allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL
 pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have unspecified
 other impact in opportunistic circumstances by using memory that was
 hot-added by an administrator. (CVE-2012-5517)
 
 Format string vulnerability in the b43_request_firmware function in
 drivers/net/wireless/b43/main.c in the Broadcom B43 wireless driver in
 the Linux kernel through 3.9.4 allows local users to gain privileges
 by leveraging root access and including format string specifiers in
 an fwpostfix modprobe parameter, leading to improper construction of
 an error message. (CVE-2013-2852)
 
 The ftrace implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.8.8 allows
 local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference
 and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by
 leveraging the CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability for write access to the (1)
 set_ftrace_pid or (2) set_graph_function file, and then making an
 lseek system call. (CVE-2013-3301)
 
 The pciback_enable_msi function in the PCI backend driver
 (drivers/xen/pciback/conf_space_capability_msi.c) in Xen for the
 Linux kernel 2.6.18 and 3.8 allows guest OS users with PCI device
 access to cause a denial of service via a large number of kernel log
 messages. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party
 information. (CVE-2013-0231)
 
 The chase_port function in drivers/usb/serial/io_ti.c in the
 Linux kernel before 3.7.4 allows local users to cause a denial of
 service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via an attempted
 /dev/ttyUSB read or write operation on a disconnected Edgeport USB
 serial converter. (CVE-2013-1774)
 
 Heap-based buffer overflow in the iscsi_add_notunderstood_response
 function in drivers/target/iscsi/iscsi_target_parameters.c in the
 iSCSI target subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.9.4 allows
 remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption
 and OOPS) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a long key that
 is not properly handled during construction of an error-response
 packet. (CVE-2013-2850)
 
 The updated packages provides a solution for these security issues.
