Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: BusyBox: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201503-13)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: local, remote
Date: March 29, 2015
Bug(s): #515254, #537978
ID: 201503-13


Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in BusyBox, allowing
context dependent attackers to load arbitrary kernel modules, execute
arbitrary files, or cause a Denial of Service condition.


BusyBox is set of tools for embedded systems and is a replacement for
GNU Coreutils.

Affected Packages

Package: sys-apps/busybox
Vulnerable: < 1.23.1
Unaffected: >= 1.23.1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in BusyBox. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.


A context-dependent attacker can load kernel modules without privileges
by nullifying enforced module
prefixes. Execution of arbitrary files or a Denial of Service can be
caused through the included vulnerable LZO library.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All BusyBox users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-apps/busybox-1.23.1"
