Advisory Summary

A vulnerability in the Linux kernel’s cgroup_release_agent_write was addressed that could lead to escalation of privileges and bypass namespace isolation unexpectedly.

CVE Number: CVE-2022-0492

Addressed an issue in OpenSSL that would make it possible to trigger an infinite loop by crafting a certificate that has invalid elliptic curve parameters. Since certificate parsing takes place before the certificate signature verification process, this could lead to a denial-of-service attack.

CVE Number: CVE-2022-0778

Addressed a memory copy vulnerability in the Linux Wi-Fi driver.

Addressed a command injection attack that could allow a malicious attacker on the same LAN to carry out a DNS spoofing attack via an unsecured HTTP call. This was done by removing the affected code from the product.

CVE Number: CVE-2022-22991, CVE-2022-22994

Reported By: Martin Rakhmanov (@mrakhmanov) working with Trend Micro’s Zero Day Initiative

A vulnerability was discovered within the parsing of extended attributes (EA) metadata when opening a file in smbd. This vulnerability can be exploited by unauthenticated users if they are allowed write access to file extended attributes. This vulnerability was addressed by removing the "fruit" VFS module from the list of configured VFS objects and by changing EA support configurations.

CVE Number: CVE-2021-44142

Reported By: Nguyen Hoang Thach (@hi_im_d4rkn3ss) and Billy Jheng Bing-Jhong (@st424204) working with Trend Micro’s Zero Day Initiative

Addressed multiple FFmpeg vulnerabilities by updating the version to 7:4.1.9-0+deb10u1.

Implemented firmware signing to prevent malicious modifications to the firmware and verify the firmware’s authenticity and integrity.

Transitioned to Go’s crypto/tls library for secure communications.

Enabled several kernel hardening options to make exploits of kernel and userland security bugs more difficult to develop.

Addressed a remote code execution vulnerability by resolving a command injection vulnerability and closing an AWS S3 bucket that potentially allowed an attacker to execute unsigned code on My Cloud Home devices. Implemented protections on AWS credentials that were not properly protected..

CVE Number: CVE-2022-22997, CVE-2022-22998

Western Digital would like to thank Viettel Cyber Security for reporting this issue.

Addressed multiple libtiff null pointer dereference vulnerabilities by updating the version to 4.4.0.

CVE Number: CVE-2022-0562, CVE-2022-0561, CVE-2022-0865

Addressed an improper input validation and out-of-bounds write vulnerability in TensorFlow which is an open-source platform for machine learning. An attacker could pass negative values to cause a segmentation fault-based denial-of-service attack. Certain components also did not validate input arguments which could also trigger a denial-of-service attack.
