Ubuntu 10.04 LTS : linux vulnerabilities (USN-2128-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 72857

Synopsis

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

Description

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel when inotify is used to monitor the /dev/ptmx device. A local user could exploit this flaw to discover keystroke timing and potentially discover sensitive information like password length. (CVE-2013-0160)

Vasily Kulikov reported a flaw in the Linux kernel's implementation of ptrace. An unprivileged local user could exploit this flaw to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory. (CVE-2013-2929)

Andrew Honig reported a flaw in the Linux Kernel's kvm_vm_ioctl_create_vcpu function of the Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM) subsystem. A local user could exploit this flaw to gain privileges on the host machine. (CVE-2013-4587)

Andrew Honig reported a flaw in the apic_get_tmcct function of the Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM) subsystem if the Linux kernel. A guest OS user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service or host OS system crash. (CVE-2013-6367)

Nico Golde and Fabian Yamaguchi reported a flaw in the driver for Adaptec AACRAID scsi raid devices in the Linux kernel. A local user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service or possibly other unspecified impact. (CVE-2013-6380)

Nico Golde and Fabian Yamaguchi reported buffer underflow errors in the implementation of the XFS filesystem in the Linux kernel. A local user with CAP_SYS_ADMIN could exploit these flaw to cause a denial of service (memory corruption) or possibly other unspecified issues.
(CVE-2013-6382)

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)

An information leak was discovered in the recvfrom, recvmmsg, and recvmsg systemcalls when used with ISDN sockets in the Linux kernel. A local user could exploit this leak to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory. (CVE-2013-7266)

An information leak was discovered in the recvfrom, recvmmsg, and recvmsg systemcalls when used with apple talk sockets in the Linux kernel. A local user could exploit this leak to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory. (CVE-2013-7267)

An information leak was discovered in the recvfrom, recvmmsg, and recvmsg systemcalls when used with ipx protocol sockets in the Linux kernel. A local user could exploit this leak to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory. (CVE-2013-7268)

An information leak was discovered in the recvfrom, recvmmsg, and recvmsg systemcalls when used with the netrom address family in the Linux kernel. A local user could exploit this leak to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory. (CVE-2013-7269)

An information leak was discovered in the recvfrom, recvmmsg, and recvmsg systemcalls when used with packet address family sockets in the Linux kernel. A local user could exploit this leak to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory. (CVE-2013-7270)

An information leak was discovered in the recvfrom, recvmmsg, and recvmsg systemcalls when used with x25 protocol sockets in the Linux kernel. A local user could exploit this leak to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory. (CVE-2013-7271)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's SIOCWANDEV ioctl call. A local user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could exploit this flaw to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory. (CVE-2014-1444)

An information leak was discovered in the wanxl ioctl function the the Linux kernel. A local user could exploit this flaw to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory. (CVE-2014-1445)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's hamradio YAM driver for AX.25 packet radio. A local user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could exploit this flaw to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory. (CVE-2014-1446)

Matthew Thode reported a denial of service vulnerability in the Linux kernel when SELinux support is enabled. A local user with the CAP_MAC_ADMIN capability (and the SELinux mac_admin permission if running in enforcing mode) could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (kernel crash). (CVE-2014-1874).

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.
