Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2013-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2013-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

An information leak was discovered in the handling of ICMPv6 Router
Advertisement (RA) messages in the Linux kernel's IPv6 network stack.
A remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service
(excessive retries and address-generation outage), and consequently
obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2013-0343)

Kees Cook discovered flaw in the Human Interface Device (HID)
subsystem of the Linux kernel. A physically proximate attacker could
exploit this flaw to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of
service (heap memory corruption) via a specially crafted device that
provides an invalid Report ID. (CVE-2013-2888)

Kees Cook discovered a flaw in the Human Interface Device (HID)
subsystem of the Linux kerenl when CONFIG_HID_PANTHERLORD is enabled.
A physically proximate attacker could cause a denial of service (heap
out-of-bounds write) via a specially crafted device. (CVE-2013-2892).

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.
