Overview

Alex talks with special guests Nishit Majithia and Matthew Ruffell about a recent systemd regression on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS plus we cover security updates for Dnsmasq, the Linux kernel, poppler, .NET 6, rust-regex and more.

This week in Ubuntu Security Updates

28 unique CVEs addressed

[USN-4976-2] Dnsmasq vulnerability [00:55]

  • 1 CVEs addressed in Xenial ESM (16.04 ESM)
  • [USN-4976-1] Dnsmasq vulnerability for Episode 118
  • Failed to properly randomise source port (ie used a fixed port) when forwarding queries when configured to use a specific server for a given network interface - could then allow a remote attacker to more easily perform cache poisoning attacks (ie just need to guess the transmission ID once know the source port to get a forged reply accepted)
    • As I said back in Episode 118, this is very similar to the issues that were discovered back in 2008 by Dan Kaminsky - the whole reason source port randomisation was introduced as part of the DNS protocol

[USN-5602-1] Linux kernel (Raspberry Pi) vulnerabilities [02:11]

[USN-5603-1] Linux kernel (Raspberry Pi) vulnerabilities [02:29]

[USN-5605-1] Linux kernel (Azure CVM) vulnerabilities [02:38]

[USN-5523-2] LibTIFF vulnerabilities [02:45]

[USN-5604-1] LibTIFF vulnerabilities [03:13]

[USN-5606-1] poppler vulnerability [03:23]

  • 1 CVEs addressed in Xenial ESM (16.04 ESM), Bionic (18.04 LTS), Focal (20.04 LTS), Jammy (22.04 LTS)
  • Integer overflow in JBIG2 decoder -> heap buffer overflow via crafted PDF / JBIG2 image - very similar to CVE-2022-38171 in xpdf
    • poppler started life as a fork of code from xpdf-3.0 but now has diverged so much that in general a vuln in one cannot be assumed to exist in the other, hence the separate CVE IDs for these two vulns

[USN-5607-1] GDK-PixBuf vulnerability [04:11]

  • 1 CVEs addressed in Focal (20.04 LTS), Jammy (22.04 LTS)
  • Heap buffer overflow when decoding lzw compressed stream from GIF files

[USN-5608-1] DPDK vulnerability [04:26]

  • 1 CVEs addressed in Bionic (18.04 LTS), Focal (20.04 LTS), Jammy (22.04 LTS)
  • Crafted Vhost header could cause a DoS

[USN-5609-1] .NET 6 vulnerability [04:39]

[USN-5583-2] systemd regression [05:16]

  • 1 CVEs addressed in Bionic (18.04 LTS)
  • Mentioned in passing in both the last 2 weeks episodes

[USN-5610-1] rust-regex vulnerability

  • 1 CVEs addressed in Focal (20.04 LTS), Jammy (22.04 LTS)
  • ReDoS in regex crate - already includes various mitigations against DoS via untrusted regexes (and these can be tuned by users of the crate) - however was able to be bypassed by a regex that specified an empty subexpression that should be matched up to say 294 million times - this then gets compiled but is able to evade the existing mitigations since doesn’t take any memory - but it does take a lot of CPU time
  • Fixed by changing code such that it will take a fake amount of memory for each empty subexpression and therefore will trip the existing detection logic in a reasonable amount of time

[USN-5611-1] WebKitGTK vulnerability [06:53]

  • 1 CVEs addressed in Focal (20.04 LTS), Jammy (22.04 LTS)
  • OOB write via malicious web content - Apple reported that this was being actively exploited for iOS users (Safari uses Webkit)
