Ubuntu 10.04 LTS : linux vulnerabilities (USN-1876-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 66900

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: 4.7

Synopsis

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

Description

Andrew Honig reported a flaw in the way KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) emulated the IOAPIC. A privileged guest user could exploit this flaw to read host memory or cause a denial of service (crash the host). (CVE-2013-1798)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's rcvmsg path for ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode). A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel's stack memory. (CVE-2013-3222)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's recvmsg path for ax25 address family. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel's stack memory. (CVE-2013-3223)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's recvmsg path for the bluetooth address family. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel's stack memory. (CVE-2013-3224)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's bluetooth rfcomm protocol support. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel's stack memory. (CVE-2013-3225)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's IRDA (infrared) support subsystem. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel's stack memory. (CVE-2013-3228)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's s390 - z/VM support. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel's stack memory. (CVE-2013-3229)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's llc (Logical Link Layer 2) support. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel's stack memory.
(CVE-2013-3231)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's receive message handling for the netrom address family. A local user could exploit this flaw to obtain sensitive information from the kernel's stack memory. (CVE-2013-3232)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's Rose X.25 protocol layer. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel's stack memory.
(CVE-2013-3234)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's TIPC (Transparent Inter Process Communication) protocol implementation. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel's stack memory. (CVE-2013-3235).

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.
