Ubuntu 6.06 LTS : linux-source-2.6.15 vulnerabilities (USN-1071-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2011-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

Tavis Ormandy discovered that the Linux kernel did not properly
implement exception fixup. A local attacker could exploit this to
crash the kernel, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-3086)

Dan Rosenberg discovered that the Linux kernel TIPC implementation
contained multiple integer signedness errors. A local attacker could
exploit this to gain root privileges. (CVE-2010-3859)

Dan Rosenberg discovered that the Linux kernel X.25 implementation
incorrectly parsed facilities. A remote attacker could exploit this to
crash the kernel, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-3873)

Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that the Linux kernel X.25 implementation
did not correctly clear kernel memory. A local attacker could exploit
this to read kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy.
(CVE-2010-3875)

Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that the Linux kernel sockets
implementation did not properly initialize certain structures. A local
attacker could exploit this to read kernel stack memory, leading to a
loss of privacy. (CVE-2010-3876)

Nelson Elhage discovered that the Linux kernel IPv4 implementation did
not properly audit certain bytecodes in netlink messages. A local
attacker could exploit this to cause the kernel to hang, leading to a
denial of service. (CVE-2010-3880)

Dan Rosenberg discovered that the SiS video driver did not correctly
clear kernel memory. A local attacker could exploit this to read
kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy. (CVE-2010-4078)

Dan Rosenberg discovered that the RME Hammerfall DSP audio interface
driver did not correctly clear kernel memory. A local attacker could
exploit this to read kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of
privacy. (CVE-2010-4080, CVE-2010-4081)

Dan Rosenberg discovered that the semctl syscall did not correctly
clear kernel memory. A local attacker could exploit this to read
kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy. (CVE-2010-4083)

James Bottomley discovered that the ICP vortex storage array
controller driver did not validate certain sizes. A local attacker on
a 64bit system could exploit this to crash the kernel, leading to a
denial of service. (CVE-2010-4157)

Dan Rosenberg discovered that the Linux kernel L2TP implementation
contained multiple integer signedness errors. A local attacker could
exploit this to to crash the kernel, or possibly gain root privileges.
(CVE-2010-4160).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.8
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:C)
CVSS Temporal Score : 6.8
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : false
