FYI,

CVE-2014-9715

Quote

    It was found that the netfilter connection tracking subsystem used
    too small a type as an offset within each connection's data
    structure, following a bug fix in Linux 3.2.33 and 3.6.  In some
    configurations, this would lead to memory corruption and crashes
    (even without malicious traffic).  This could potentially also
    result in violation of the netfilter policy or remote code
    execution.

    This can be mitigated by disabling connection tracking accounting:
        sysctl net.netfilter.nf_conntrack_acct=0

Update your OpenSSH.

https://lists.debian.org/debian-security-announce/2016/msg00015.html

Quote

The Qualys Security team discovered two vulnerabilities in the roaming
code of the OpenSSH client (an implementation of the SSH protocol
suite).

SSH roaming enables a client, in case an SSH connection breaks
unexpectedly, to resume it at a later time, provided the server also
supports it.

The OpenSSH server doesn't support roaming, but the OpenSSH client
supports it (even though it's not documented) and it's enabled by
default.

Package : openssh
CVE ID : CVE-2015-8325

Shayan Sadigh discovered a vulnerability in OpenSSH: If PAM support is
enabled and the sshd PAM configuration is configured to read user-
specified environment variables and the "UseLogin" option is enabled, a
local user may escalate her privileges to root.

In Debian "UseLogin" is not enabled by default.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed
in version 6.0p1-4+deb7u4.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 6.7p1-5+deb8u2.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:7.2p2-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your openssh packages.

I subscribed to the mailing list. But I don't want to be blamed for missing announcements that are important to only to some :) hence it is not sticky thread.

Anybody who feels certain security news is important to the way we use these boxes, please feel free to post in this thread.

Package : openssl
CVE ID : CVE-2016-2105 CVE-2016-2106 CVE-2016-2107 CVE-2016-2108
CVE-2016-2109 CVE-2016-2176

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in OpenSSL, a Secure Socket Layer
toolkit.

CVE-2016-2105

Guido Vranken discovered that an overflow can occur in the function
EVP_EncodeUpdate(), used for Base64 encoding, if an attacker can
supply a large amount of data. This could lead to a heap corruption.

CVE-2016-2106

Guido Vranken discovered that an overflow can occur in the function
EVP_EncryptUpdate() if an attacker can supply a large amount of data.
This could lead to a heap corruption.

CVE-2016-2107

Juraj Somorovsky discovered a padding oracle in the AES CBC cipher
implementation based on the AES-NI instruction set. This could allow
an attacker to decrypt TLS traffic encrypted with one of the cipher
suites based on AES CBC.

CVE-2016-2108

David Benjamin from Google discovered that two separate bugs in the
ASN.1 encoder, related to handling of negative zero integer values
and large universal tags, could lead to an out-of-bounds write.

CVE-2016-2109

Brian Carpenter discovered that when ASN.1 data is read from a BIO
using functions such as d2i_CMS_bio(), a short invalid encoding can
casuse allocation of large amounts of memory potentially consuming
excessive resources or exhausting memory.

CVE-2016-2176

Guido Vranken discovered that ASN.1 Strings that are over 1024 bytes
can cause an overread in applications using the X509_NAME_oneline()
function on EBCDIC systems. This could result in arbitrary stack data
being returned in the buffer.

Additional information about these issues can be found in the OpenSSL
security advisory at https://www.openssl.org/news/secadv/20160503.txt

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.1k-3+deb8u5.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.2h-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your openssl packages.

Package : openssh
CVE ID : CVE-2016-6210
Debian Bug : 831902

Eddie Harari reported that the OpenSSH SSH daemon allows user
enumeration through timing differences when trying to authenticate
users. When sshd tries to authenticate a non-existing user, it will pick
up a fixed fake password structure with a hash based on the Blowfish
algorithm. If real users passwords are hashed using SHA256/SHA512, then
a remote attacker can take advantage of this flaw by sending large
passwords, receiving shorter response times from the server for
non-existing users.

For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:6.7p1-5+deb8u3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1:7.2p2-6.

We recommend that you upgrade your openssh packages.

That's the importance in tracking the mainline distro like we try to keep up with Debian. The OEM Android devices, same as OpenWrt/LEDE distro to certain extent, is far behind in security patches.

Package : linux
CVE ID : CVE-2017-5754

Multiple researchers have discovered a vulnerability in Intel processors,
enabling an attacker controlling an unprivileged process to read memory from
arbitrary addresses, including from the kernel and all other processes running
on the system.

This specific attack has been named Meltdown and is addressed in the Linux
kernel for the Intel x86-64 architecture by a patch set named Kernel Page Table
Isolation, enforcing a near complete separation of the kernel and userspace
address maps and preventing the attack. This solution might have a performance
impact, and can be disabled at boot time by passing `pti=off' to the kernel
command line.

We also identified a regression for ancient userspaces using the vsyscall
interface, for example chroot and containers using (e)glibc 2.13 and older,
including those based on Debian 7 or RHEL/CentOS 6. This regression will be
fixed in a later update.

The other vulnerabilities (named Spectre) published at the same time are not
addressed in this update and will be fixed in a later update.


These processor bug fixes will bring some kernel changes for ARM too.

I will release a new kernel in about 2 week from now (or whenever needed after).

Here is what I have found on arm chips so far.

https://developer.arm.com/support/security-update

Edit to add:

I don't see anything in the pipe for arm older than cortex.

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/arm64/linux.git/

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/arm/arm-soc.git/

Perhaps speculation wasn't even a glint in arms eye back then ;)

From all the information I've been reading it appears that what is being called Meltdown only affects Intel and a few as yet rare ARM 64 chips. The Spectre issue is more widespread but shouldn't affect any of the ARM5 chips, so Kirkwood won't be affected.

Yes Kirkwood is too old so it is a given that it is not affected.

There are many of ARM 32 being affected. Cortex A9 (eg. our MVEBU Armada 38x) is one of those. Therefore I will have new release kenel out ASAP when I can get back to my development rig.

FYI,

Not sure if we should run both this and the linux kernel updates.
