Description of the vulnerability

The Linux kernel supports the Copy On Write operation, which is used to copy memory only when it is modified.

However, a local attacker can manipulate the memory, so the COW operation writes in Read Only memory.

A local attacker can therefore generate a memory corruption via a Copy On Write on the Linux kernel, in order to trigger a denial of service, and possibly to run code.

Description of the vulnerability

The glibc library provides two functions to obtain the IP address of a server from its DNS name:
  struct hostent *gethostbyname(const char *name);
  struct hostent *gethostbyname2(const char *name, int af);

For example:
  he = gethostbyname("www.example.com");

These functions also accept to directly process an IP address:
  he = gethostbyname("192.168.1.1");

However, a malformed IPv4 address, which is too long such as 192.168.111111.1 (more than 1024 byte long) triggers an overflow in the __nss_hostname_digits_dots() function.

An attacker can therefore for example send an email using a long IPv4 address, to force the messaging server to resolve this address, and to generate a buffer overflow in gethostbyname() of the glibc, in order to trigger a denial of service, and possibly to execute code.

Several programs using the gethostbyname() function are vulnerable (exim, php, pppd, procmail) with a similar attack vector. The following programs are apparently not vulnerable: apache, cups, dovecot, gnupg, isc-dhcp, lighttpd, mariadb/mysql, nfs-utils, nginx, nodejs, openldap, openssh, postfix, proftpd, pure-ftpd, rsyslog, samba, sendmail, squid, sysklogd, syslog-ng, tcp_wrappers, vsftpd, xinetd.

Description of the vulnerability

An SSL/TLS session can be established using several protocols:
 - SSL 2.0 (obsolete)
 - SSL 3.0
 - TLS 1.0
 - TLS 1.1
 - TLS 1.2

An attacker can downgrade the version to SSLv3. However, with SSL 3.0, an attacker can change the padding position with a CBC encryption, in order to progressively guess clear text fragments.

This vulnerability is named POODLE (Padding Oracle On Downgraded Legacy Encryption).

An attacker, located as a Man-in-the-Middle, can therefore decrypt a SSL 3.0 session, in order to obtain sensitive information.

Description of the vulnerability

A client based on the OpenSSL library can create an encrypted session using elliptic curves (ECDH : elliptic curves and Diffie-Hellman).

However, a malicious server can negotiate an Anonymous ECDH ciphersuite, in order to trigger a denial of service in the OpenSSL client.

An attacker, who is located on a TLS server, can therefore use Anonymous ECDH, in order to trigger a denial of service in OpenSSL client applications.

Description of the vulnerability

The ECDSA (Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm) algorithm uses a secret "k" value.

However, a local attacker can monitor the process linked to OpenSSL, and use the "FLUSH+RELOAD Cache" attack on a conditional branch (if), to obtain bit after bit the "k" secret value.

A local attacker can therefore guess the ECDSA secret used by the OpenSSL implementation, in order to obtain sensitive information.

Description of the vulnerability

The OpenSSL product uses a proprietary implementation of malloc to manage its memory.

However, when this feature is disabled with OPENSSL_NO_BUF_FREELIST, a memory area is not freed, and the ssl3_setup_read_buffer() function can, in multi-thread mode, reuse data from another SSL session.

An attacker can therefore establish a connection with a multi-threaded application linked to OpenSSL with OPENSSL_NO_BUF_FREELIST, in order to potentially inject data in the session of another user.

Description of the vulnerability

The SSL_set_mode() function of OpenSSL defines the behavior of the library. The SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS parameter, added in version 1.0.0, indicates to free the memory as soon as it it not needed anymore. The SSL module of Apache httpd uses it when Apache is configured to save memory.

The do_ssl3_write() function of the ssl/s3_pkt.c file sends SSLv3 packets. After sending data, the memory can be freed if SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS is used, so a pointer can be NULL. However, OpenSSL does not check if this pointer is NULL, before using it.

An attacker can therefore dereference a NULL pointer in OpenSSL applications using SSL_MODE_RELEASE_BUFFERS, in order to trigger a denial of service.
