Vulnerability Summary for CVE-2010-1188

Original release date: 03/31/2010
Last revised: 03/19/2012
Source: US-CERT/NIST

Overview

Use-after-free vulnerability in net/ipv4/tcp_input.c in the Linux kernel 2.6 before 2.6.20, when IPV6_RECVPKTINFO is set on a listening socket, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (kernel panic) via a SYN packet while the socket is in a listening (TCP_LISTEN) state, which is not properly handled and causes the skb structure to be freed.

Impact

CVSS Severity (version 2.0):
CVSS v2 Base Score: 7.1 (HIGH) (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:C) (legend)
Impact Subscore: 6.9
Exploitability Subscore: 8.6
CVSS Version 2 Metrics:
Access Vector: Network exploitable
Access Complexity: Medium

Vendor Statements (disclaimer)

Official Statement from Red Hat (04/09/2010)
Red Hat is aware of this issue and is tracking it via the following bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/CVE-2010-1188 This issue did not affect the version of the Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise MRG, as it was fixed since version v2.6.20-rc6. It was addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 in the kernel package via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0178.html. A future update in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4 may address this flaw.
