medium Nessus Plugin ID 71795
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 a security-related patch.

Description

Hannes Frederic Sowa discovered a flaw in the Linux kernel's UDP Fragmentation Offload (UFO). An unprivileged local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly gain administrative privileges. (CVE-2013-4470)

Multiple integer overflow flaws were discovered in the Alchemy LCD frame- buffer drivers in the Linux kernel. An unprivileged local user could exploit this flaw to gain administrative privileges.
(CVE-2013-4511)

Nico Golde and Fabian Yamaguchi reported a buffer overflow in the Ozmo Devices USB over WiFi devices. A local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service or possibly unspecified impact.
(CVE-2013-4513)

Nico Golde and Fabian Yamaguchi reported a flaw in the Linux kernel's driver for Agere Systems HERMES II Wireless PC Cards. A local user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service or possibly gain administrative priviliges.
(CVE-2013-4514)

Nico Golde and Fabian Yamaguchi reported a flaw in the Linux kernel's driver for Beceem WIMAX chipset based devices. An unprivileged local user could exploit this flaw to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory. (CVE-2013-4515)

Nico Golde and Fabian Yamaguchi reported a flaw in the Linux kernel's driver for the SystemBase Multi-2/PCI serial card. An unprivileged user could obtain sensitive information from kernel memory.
(CVE-2013-4516)

A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel's compat ioctls for Adaptec AACRAID scsi raid devices. An unprivileged local user could send administrative commands to these devices potentially compromising the data stored on the device. (CVE-2013-6383)

Nico Golde reported a flaw in the Linux kernel's userspace IO (uio) driver. A local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly gain privileges.
(CVE-2013-6763)

Evan Huus reported a buffer overflow in the Linux kernel's radiotap header parsing. A remote attacker could cause a denial of service (buffer over- read) via a specially crafted header. (CVE-2013-7027).

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.
