products. The applicable CVEs are CVE-2017-18017 and CVE-2017-17449.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2017-18017
DESCRIPTION: Linux Kernel is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by a
use-after-free flaw in the tcpmss_mangle_packet function in net/netfilter/
xt_TCPMSS.c. By leveraging the presence of xt_TCPMSS in an iptables action, a
remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service
condition.

CVEID: CVE-2017-17449
DESCRIPTION: Linux Kernel could allow a local attacker to obtain sensitive
information, caused by the failure to restrict observations of Netlink messages
to a single net namespace when CONFIG_NLMON is enabled in the
__netlink_deliver_tap_skb function in net/netlink/af_netlink.c. By leveraging
the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability to sniff an nlmon interface for all Netlink
activity on the system, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain
sensitive information.
