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

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2014 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2011-2014 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).

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
