New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 8.4
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionIt was discovered that a race condition existed in the Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-20836)
It was discovered that the ext4 file system implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly zero out memory in some situations. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2019-11833)
It was discovered that the Bluetooth Human Interface Device Protocol (HIDP) implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly verify strings were NULL terminated in certain situations. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory).
It was discovered that the Linux kernel on ARM processors allowed a tracing process to modify a syscall after a seccomp decision had been made on that syscall. A local attacker could possibly use this to bypass seccomp restrictions. (CVE-2019-2054)
Hugues Anguelkov discovered that the Broadcom Wifi driver in the Linux kernel did not properly prevent remote firmware events from being processed for USB Wifi devices. A physically proximate attacker could use this to send firmware events to the device. (CVE-2019-9503)
It was discovered that an integer overflow existed in the Freescale (PowerPC) hypervisor manager in the Linux kernel. A local attacker with write access to /dev/fsl-hv could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
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.
