Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2008-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2009-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
It was discovered that the Linux kernel could be made to hang
temporarily when mounting corrupted ext2/3 filesystems. If a user were
tricked into mounting a specially crafted filesystem, a remote
attacker could cause system hangs, leading to a denial of service.
Anders Kaseorg discovered that ndiswrapper did not correctly handle
long ESSIDs. For a system using ndiswrapper, a physically near-by
attacker could generate specially crafted wireless network traffic and
execute arbitrary code with root privileges. (CVE-2008-4395).
