Medium Nessus Plugin ID 70800

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description

Dan Carpenter discovered an information leak in the HP Smart Aray and Compaq SMART2 disk-array driver in the Linux kernel. A local user could exploit this flaw to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory. (CVE-2013-2147)

Kees Cook discovered flaw in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem when CONFIG_HID_ZEROPLUS is enabled. A physically proximate attacker could leverage this flaw to cause a denial of service via a specially crafted device. (CVE-2013-2889)

Kees Cook discovered another flaw in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem of the Linux kernel when any of CONFIG_LOGITECH_FF, CONFIG_LOGIG940_FF, or CONFIG_LOGIWHEELS_FF are enabled. A physcially proximate attacker can leverage this flaw to cause a denial of service vias a specially crafted device. (CVE-2013-2893)

Kees Cook discovered yet another flaw in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem of the Linux kernel when CONFIG_HID_MULTITOUCH is enabled. A physically proximate attacker could leverage this flaw to cause a denial of service (OOPS) via a specially crafted device.
(CVE-2013-2897)

A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel's dm snapshot facility. A remote authenticated user could exploit this flaw to obtain sensitive information or modify/corrupt data. (CVE-2013-4299).

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.
