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: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionAndy Adamson discovered a flaw in the Linux kernel's NFSv4 implementation. A remote NFS server (attacker) could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2011-4131)
Steve Grubb reported a flaw with Linux fscaps (file system base capabilities) when used to increase the permissions of a process. For application on which fscaps are in use a local attacker can disable address space randomization to make attacking the process with raised privileges easier. (CVE-2012-2123)
An error was discovered in the Linux kernel's network TUN/TAP device implementation. A local user with access to the TUN/TAP interface (which is not available to unprivileged users until granted by a root user) could exploit this flaw to crash the system or potential gain administrative privileges. (CVE-2012-2136)
Stephan Mueller reported a flaw in the Linux kernel's dl2k network driver's handling of ioctls. An unprivileged local user could leverage this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2012-2313)
Timo Warns reported multiple flaws in the Linux kernel's hfsplus filesystem. An unprivileged local user could exploit these flaws to gain root system priviliges. (CVE-2012-2319)
A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS) protocol implementation. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2012-2372)
A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel's NFSv4 (Network file system) handling of ACLs (access control lists). A remote NFS server (attacker) could cause a denial of service (OOPS). (CVE-2012-2375)
