KVM: Out-of-bounds memory access via MMIO ring buffer.
An issue was found in the implementation of the coalesced MMIO write operation in KVM. The indices used to access an MMIO ring buffer could be supplied by a user-space process in the host system. An attacker with access to /dev/kvm could use this flaw to trigger out-of-bounds memory access and crash the host kernel or, potentially, escalate their privileges.
Potential kernel crash in __tcp_retransmit_skb().
It was discovered that a local unprivileged attacker could use a specially crafted sequence of system calls to trigger either a kernel crash in __tcp_retransmit_skb() or use-after-free conditions, which could result in privilege escalation.
Certain operations with iptables in a container may crash the kernel.
A container that tries to mount NFS shares may cause the whole system to hang in certain conditions.
tun: potential kernel crash when TUNSETIFF ioctl operation is used for a device with an invalid name.
Use-after-free in __blk_drain_queue() function.
It was found that a use-after-free condition could be triggered in the block device subsystem while the outstanding command queue was drained. A patient local attacker can use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, to escalate their privileges.
sunrpc: kernel crash in svcauth_unix_set_client().
Base ploop images containing holes could become larger than needed after merge.
Data corruption in the EXT4 file system when truncating the extent index blocks.
Kernel complained about busy inodes after unmount of NFS shares and crashed in certain cases.
memcg: race condition between reparenting and kmem uncharging.
It was discovered that a race condition was possible between kmem uncharging and mem_cgroup_reparent_charges(). A kernel warning would be triggered as a result.
Kernel crashed in down_read() when a FUSE file system was exported via NFS.
vhost-net: guest to host kernel escape during migration
A buffer overflow vulnerability was found in the networking virtualization functionality (vhost-net) that could be abused during live migration of virtual machines. A privileged guest user may pass descriptors with invalid length to the host when live migration is underway to crash the host kernel or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the host.
Ploop image could grow over its limits in certain cases.
ploop: resize operation could fail due to an incorrect check in ploop1_allocate().
infiniband: use-after-free in ucma_leave_multicast().
It was found that ucma_leave_multicast() function from 'rdma_ucm' module could try to access a certain data structure after the structure had been freed. This allows an attacker to induce kernel memory corruption, leading to a system crash or other unspecified impact.
Page cache side channel attacks via mincore().
It was discovered that a local attacker could exploit mincore() system call to obtain information about memory pages of the running applications from the page cache even if the contents of these memory pages were not available to the attacker.
The warning in mem_cgroup_reparent_charges() was triggered too early and too often in certain cases.
kvm: potential system hang due to an error in mmu_shrink_scan().
nfs: NULL pointer dereference due to an anomalized NFS message sequence.
An attacker, who is able to mount an exported NFS filesystem, is able to trigger a null pointer dereference by using an invalid NFS sequence. This can panic the machine and deny access to the NFS server. Any outstanding disk writes to the NFS server will be lost.
Storage: certain errors in CS caused by power failures were not handled properly.
It was discovered that if a file located on Virtuozzo Storage cluster was reopened, the kernel could reuse its mappings without notifying MDS. As a result, if errors were then detected on a CS, for example, caused by power failures, the userspace components would be unable to handle them properly.
Processes could get stuck in copy_net_ns() forever.
vziolimit: kernel crash due to a division by zero in throttle_charge().
pcompact operation is much slower for the containers on Virtuozzo Storage than for the ones stored locally.
