New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

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

Description

Clement Lecigne discovered a bug in the HFS filesystem. A local attacker could exploit this to cause a kernel oops. (CVE-2011-2203)

A bug was discovered in the XFS filesystem's handling of pathnames. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service, or gain root privileges. (CVE-2011-4077)

A flaw was found in how the Linux kernel handles user-defined key types. An unprivileged local user could exploit this to crash the system. (CVE-2011-4110)

A flaw was found in the Journaling Block Device (JBD). A local attacker able to mount ext3 or ext4 file systems could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-4132)

Clement Lecigne discovered a bug in the HFS file system bounds checking. When a malformed HFS file system is mounted a local user could crash the system or gain root privileges. (CVE-2011-4330)

Chen Haogang discovered an integer overflow that could result in memory corruption. A local unprivileged user could use this to crash the system. (CVE-2012-0044).

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.
