Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2011-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

It was discovered that the security fix for CVE-2010-4250 introduced a
regression. A remote attacker could exploit this to crash the system,
leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-1479)

Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that taskstats did not enforce access
restrictions. A local attacker could exploit this to read certain
information, leading to a loss of privacy. (CVE-2011-2494)

Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that /proc/PID/io did not enforce access
restrictions. A local attacker could exploit this to read certain
information, leading to a loss of privacy. (CVE-2011-2495)

It was discovered that the EXT4 filesystem contained multiple
off-by-one flaws. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the
system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-2695)

Christian Ohm discovered that the perf command looks for configuration
files in the current directory. If a privileged user were tricked into
running perf in a directory containing a malicious configuration file,
an attacker could run arbitrary commands and possibly gain privileges.
(CVE-2011-2905)

Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that the Comedi driver did not correctly
clear memory. A local attacker could exploit this to read kernel stack
memory, leading to a loss of privacy. (CVE-2011-2909)

Dan Kaminsky discovered that the kernel incorrectly handled random
sequence number generation. An attacker could use this flaw to
possibly predict sequence numbers and inject packets. (CVE-2011-3188)

Yogesh Sharma discovered that CIFS did not correctly handle UNCs that
had no prefixpaths. A local attacker with access to a CIFS partition
could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of
service. (CVE-2011-3363).
