Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
A Denial of Service vulnerability was detected in the stack segment
fault handler. A local attacker could exploit this by causing stack
fault exceptions under special circumstances (scheduling), which lead
to a kernel crash. (CAN-2005-1767)
Vasiliy Averin discovered a Denial of Service vulnerability in the
'tiocgdev' ioctl call and in the 'routing_ioctl' function. By calling
fget() and fput() in special ways, a local attacker could exploit this
to destroy file descriptor structures and crash the kernel.
Update the affected packages.
