Ubuntu 5.04 / 5.10 / 6.06 LTS : linux-source-2.6.10/-2.6.12/-2.6.15 vulnerabilities (USN-347-1)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 27927
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

Sridhar Samudrala discovered a local Denial of Service vulnerability in the handling of SCTP sockets. By opening such a socket with a special SO_LINGER value, a local attacker could exploit this to crash the kernel. (CVE-2006-4535)

Kirill Korotaev discovered that the ELF loader on the ia64 and sparc platforms did not sufficiently verify the memory layout. By attempting to execute a specially crafted executable, a local user could exploit this to crash the kernel. (CVE-2006-4538).

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.
