Ubuntu 15.10 : linux-raspi2 vulnerability (USN-3035-2)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 92316
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionJan Stancek discovered that the Linux kernel's memory manager did not properly handle moving pages mapped by the asynchronous I/O (AIO) ring buffer to the other nodes. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected linux-image-4.2-raspi2 package.
