Our database server was corrupting tables every hour and I had multiple other admins look into the issue but only serverbuddies technicians were have to resolve it. They worked arround the clock until it was fixed.

Important Dirty COW (CVE-2016-5195) exploit for Debian, Ubuntu, RHEL and CentOS

2016-10-29

Dirty COW (CVE-2016-5195) is a privilege escalation vulnerability in the Linux Kernel.

A race condition was found in the way the Linux kernel's memory subsystem handled the copy-on-write (COW) breakage of private read-only memory mappings.

Impact

  • An unprivileged local user could use this flaw to gain write access to otherwise read-only memory mappings and thus increase their privileges on the system and gain root access instantly.
  • This flaw allows an attacker with a local system account to modify on-disk binaries, bypassing the standard permission mechanisms that would prevent modification without an appropriate permission set.

It's highly recommended to patch the system kernel in all Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS and RHEL distros to prevent system breakage.
