K32804955:Linux kernel vulnerability CVE-2019-10639

Security Advisory

Original Publication Date: 31 Aug, 2019

Security Advisory Description

The Linux kernel 4.x (starting from 4.1) and 5.x before 5.0.8 allows
Information Exposure (partial kernel address disclosure), leading to a KASLR
bypass. Specifically, it is possible to extract the KASLR kernel image offset
using the IP ID values the kernel produces for connection-less protocols (e.g.,
UDP and ICMP). When such traffic is sent to multiple destination IP addresses,
it is possible to obtain hash collisions (of indices to the counter array) and
thereby obtain the hashing key (via enumeration). This key contains enough bits
from a kernel address (of a static variable) so when the key is extracted (via
enumeration), the offset of the kernel image is exposed. This attack can be
carried out remotely, by the attacker forcing the target device to send UDP or
ICMP (or certain other) traffic to attacker-controlled IP addresses. Forcing a
server to send UDP traffic is trivial if the server is a DNS server. ICMP
traffic is trivial if the server answers ICMP Echo requests (ping). For client
targets, if the target visits the attacker's web page, then WebRTC or gQUIC can
be used to force UDP traffic to attacker-controlled IP addresses. NOTE: this
attack against KASLR became viable in 4.1 because IP ID generation was changed
to have a dependency on an address associated with a network namespace. (
CVE-2019-10639)

Impact

This vulnerability can result in leaking information to a remote user and
potentially defeating KASLR.

Security Advisory Status

Security Advisory Recommended Actions

If you are running a version listed in the Versions known to be vulnerable
column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to a version listed
in the Fixes introduced in column. If the table lists only an older version
than what you are currently running, or does not list a non-vulnerable version,
then no upgrade candidate currently exists.

Mitigation

To mitigate this vulnerability, you should restrict management access to the
BIG-IP system only over a secure network and restrict command line access for
affected systems to only trusted users. For more information, refer to K13309:
Restricting access to the Configuration utility by source IP address (11.x -
15.x) and K13092: Overview of securing access to the BIG-IP system.
