[ASA-201709-8] linux-lts: arbitrary code execution
Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-201709-8 ========================================= Severity: High Date : 2017-09-14 CVE-ID : CVE-2017-1000251 Package : linux-lts Type : arbitrary code execution Remote : Yes Link : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-393 Summary ======= The package linux-lts before version 4.9.49-2 is vulnerable to arbitrary code execution. Resolution ========== Upgrade to 4.9.49-2. # pacman -Syu "linux-lts>=4.9.49-2" The problem has been fixed upstream but no release is available yet. Workaround ========== None. Description =========== A stack buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the Bluetooth subsystem of the Linux kernel processed pending L2CAP configuration responses from a client. On systems with the stack protection feature enabled in the kernel (CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR=y, which is enabled on all architectures), an unauthenticated attacker able to initiate a connection to a system via Bluetooth could use this flaw to crash the system. Due to the nature of the stack protection feature, code execution cannot be fully ruled out, although it is unlikely. On systems without the stack protection feature, an unauthenticated attacker able to initiate a connection to a system via Bluetooth could use this flaw to remotely execute arbitrary code on the system with ring 0 (kernel) privileges. Impact ====== An unauthenticated attacker able to initiate a connection via Bluetooth is able to crash the system or possibly execute arbitrary code.
