(Copy of previously sent advisory) -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Xen Security Advisory CVE-2013-0216,CVE-2013-0217 / XSA-39 version 2 Linux netback DoS via malicious guest ring. UPDATES IN VERSION 2 ==================== Public release. ISSUE DESCRIPTION ================= The Xen netback implementation contains a couple of flaws which can allow a guest to cause a DoS in the backend domain, potentially affecting other domains in the system. CVE-2013-0216 is a failure to sanity check the ring producer/consumer pointers which can allow a guest to cause netback to loop for an extended period preventing other work from occurring. CVE-2013-0217 is a memory leak on an error path which is guest triggerable. IMPACT ====== A malicious guest can mount a DoS affecting the entire system. VULNERABLE SYSTEMS ================== All systems running guests with access to PV network devices are vulnerable. CVE-2013-0216 affects both mainline ("pvops") and classic-Xen patch kernels. CVE-2013-0217 affects only mainline ("pvops") kernels. MITIGATION ========== Running HVM guests with only emulated or passthrough NICs or PV guests with only passthrough NICs will avoid this vulnerability. RESOLUTION ========== Applying the appropriate attached patches in sequence resolves this issue. xsa39-pvops-*.patch Apply to mainline Linux 3.8-rc2 xsa39-classic-*.patch Apply to linux-2.6.18-xen tree. All patches for the given branch should be applied in numerical order. $ sha256sum xsa39*.patch 4b75961673b940f5eb31451080dd668b9119eb88db1df44db1a3ba4b0d037ce1 xsa39-classic-0001-xen-netback-garbage-ring.patch 096143750b99eb2d88970338c3f9debfbbfdaef766525a620281b28528ebe0ce xsa39-classic-0002-xen-netback-wrap-around.patch 99cf93e37985908243b974cc726f57e592e62ae005eca52969f11fb6fdea6fb5 xsa39-pvops-0001-xen-netback-shutdown-the-ring-if-it-contains-garbage.patch e0c4226b0910ca455f22ae117e8346d87053e9faf03ec155dd6c31e2f58a1969 xsa39-pvops-0002-xen-netback-don-t-leak-pages-on-failure-in-xen_netbk.patch 70e6cb644a57cdda7f29eb86086a8e697706c3fc974a44c52322e451fd6b9d5c xsa39-pvops-0003-xen-netback-free-already-allocated-memory-on-failure.patch 5d0db59bbd5ad3a7efae78a6c26fc2491b7c553e5519dd946d1422a116af73dd xsa39-pvops-0004-netback-correct-netbk_tx_err-to-handle-wrap-around.patch $ -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux) iQEcBAEBAgAGBQJREQI5AAoJEIP+FMlX6CvZLbcIAL7gpD+EzDjb+g3ZlORl1jPV +icqyDoPWeWructbggY+YcJJc2IavNrRXBSN/9edSTUXSi7YTW+Tjeh8bcLza1JM McWKxPtJB8CKEIAjAeT8qMVaNUNQuJQTtTLtXHGuQE6xwxK8YmgLzQSx91OOp9Bx 49GK1Ptnp7bQoEoc7B3oN6GXr/hs/FvaD0Cr481yUxXX1GxV+AL7sxXiJ4kXu1rE UTSLFAzUfw1KWI5wP3GQCREhysCvgIq4mZyD5+TF8MUagpg+m1aURs2AUUxrJ/Zw o+LVEKWYRsTtWIRtwYOdPHn73bllyPOrBgimTDBM9rY9CztOnN8yoPRlUz0Sux0= =UhBt -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- Download attachment "xsa39-classic-0001-xen-netback-garbage-ring.patch" of type "application/octet-stream" (7936 bytes) Download attachment "xsa39-classic-0002-xen-netback-wrap-around.patch" of type "application/octet-stream" (464 bytes) Download attachment "xsa39-pvops-0001-xen-netback-shutdown-the-ring-if-it-contains-garbage.patch" of type "application/octet-stream" (8321 bytes) Download attachment "xsa39-pvops-0002-xen-netback-don-t-leak-pages-on-failure-in-xen_netbk.patch" of type "application/octet-stream" (5021 bytes) Download attachment "xsa39-pvops-0003-xen-netback-free-already-allocated-memory-on-failure.patch" of type "application/octet-stream" (1467 bytes) Download attachment "xsa39-pvops-0004-netback-correct-netbk_tx_err-to-handle-wrap-around.patch" of type "application/octet-stream" (868 bytes)
