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: 7.7
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionAmit Klein and Benny Pinkas discovered that the Linux kernel did not sufficiently randomize IP ID values generated for connectionless networking protocols. A remote attacker could use this to track particular Linux devices. (CVE-2019-10638)
Praveen Pandey discovered that the Linux kernel did not properly validate sent signals in some situations on PowerPC systems with transactional memory disabled. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2019-13648)
It was discovered that the floppy driver in the Linux kernel did not properly validate meta data, leading to a buffer overread. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
It was discovered that the floppy driver in the Linux kernel did not properly validate ioctl() calls, leading to a division-by-zero. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2019-14284)
Jason Wang discovered that an infinite loop vulnerability existed in the virtio net driver in the Linux kernel. A local attacker in a guest VM could possibly use this to cause a denial of service in the host system. (CVE-2019-3900).
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.
