The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
An integer overflow flaw was found in the i915_gem_do_execbuffer()
function in the Intel i915 driver in the Linux kernel. A local,
unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service.
This issue only affected 32-bit systems. (CVE-2012-2384 , Moderate)
A memory leak flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's memory
subsystem handled resource clean up in the mmap() failure path when
the MAP_HUGETLB flag was set. A local, unprivileged user could use
this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2012-2390 , Moderate)
A race condition was found in the way access to inet->opt ip_options
was synchronized in the Linux kernel's TCP/IP protocol suite
implementation. Depending on the network facing applications running
on the system, a remote attacker could possibly trigger this flaw to
cause a denial of service. A local, unprivileged user could use this
flaw to cause a denial of service regardless of the applications the
system runs. (CVE-2012-3552 , Moderate)
A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's dl2k driver, used by
certain D-Link Gigabit Ethernet adapters, restricted IOCTLs. A local,
unprivileged user could use this flaw to issue potentially harmful
IOCTLs, which could cause Ethernet adapters using the dl2k driver to
malfunction (for example, losing network connectivity). (CVE-2012-2313
A flaw was found in the way the msg_namelen variable in the
rds_recvmsg() function of the Linux kernel's Reliable Datagram Sockets
(RDS) protocol implementation was initialized. A local, unprivileged
user could use this flaw to leak kernel stack memory to user-space.
(CVE-2012-3430 , Low)
