Description

Three related flaws were found in the Linux kernel’s handling of TCP networking. The most severe vulnerability could allow a remote attacker to trigger a kernel panic in systems running the affected software and, as a result, impact the system’s availability.

The issues have been assigned multiple CVEs: CVE-2019-11477 is considered an Important severity, whereas CVE-2019-11478 and CVE-2019-11479 are considered a Moderate severity.

The first two are related to the Selective Acknowledgement (SACK) packets combined with Maximum Segment Size (MSS), the third solely with the Maximum Segment Size (MSS).


Affected Windriver Linux releases:

All releases including Wind River Linux LTS 18, Wind River Linux LTS 17, Wind River Linux 9, Wind River Linux 8, Wind River Linux 7, Wind River Linux 6, Wind River Linux 5, Wind River Linux 4


Affected software components:

Linux kernel.


Affected hardware:

All.


Mitigation
