Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2014 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2011-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
Dan Rosenberg discovered that multiple terminal ioctls did not
correctly initialize structure memory. A local attacker could exploit
this to read portions of kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of
privacy. (CVE-2010-4076, CVE-2010-4077)
Neil Horman discovered that NFSv4 did not correctly handle certain
orders of operation with ACL data. A remote attacker with access to an
NFSv4 mount could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a
denial of service. (CVE-2011-1090)
Timo Warns discovered that OSF partition parsing routines did not
correctly clear memory. A local attacker with physical access could
plug in a specially crafted block device to read kernel memory,
leading to a loss of privacy. (CVE-2011-1163)
Timo Warns discovered that the GUID partition parsing routines did not
correctly validate certain structures. A local attacker with physical
access could plug in a specially crafted block device to crash the
system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-1577)
Oliver Hartkopp and Dave Jones discovered that the CAN network driver
did not correctly validate certain socket structures. If this driver
was loaded, a local attacker could crash the system, leading to a
denial of service. (CVE-2011-1598)
Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that the AGP driver did not check the size
of certain memory allocations. A local attacker with access to the
video subsystem could exploit this to run the system out of memory,
leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-1746).
Update the affected packages.
