Linux kernel (OMAP4) Vulnerabilities, Affected Distribution Ubuntu 10.10


kernel incorrectly handled certain VLAN packets leading to a remote attacker could send specially crafted traffic to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. EFI GUID partition table was not correctly parsed leading to  A physically local attacker that could insert mountable devices could exploit this to crash the system or possibly gain root privileges.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-1220-1
September 29, 2011

linux-ti-omap4 vulnerabilities

=============================================
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
- Ubuntu 10.10

Summary:
Multiple kernel flaws have been fixed.
Software Description:
- linux-ti-omap4: Linux kernel for OMAP4

Details:-

Ryan Sweat discovered that the kernel incorrectly handled certain VLAN
packets. On some systems, a remote attacker could send specially crafted
traffic to crash the system, leading to a denial of service.
(CVE-2011-1576)
Timo Warns discovered that the EFI GUID partition table was not correctly
parsed. A physically local attacker that could insert mountable devices
could exploit this to crash the system or possibly gain root privileges.
(CVE-2011-1776)
Dan Rosenberg discovered that the IPv4 diagnostic routines did not
correctly validate certain requests. A local attacker could exploit this to
consume CPU resources, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-2213)
Dan Rosenberg discovered that the Bluetooth stack incorrectly handled
certain L2CAP requests. If a system was using Bluetooth, a remote attacker
could send specially crafted traffic to crash the system or gain root
privileges. (CVE-2011-2497)
Mauro Carvalho Chehab discovered that the si4713 radio driver did not
correctly check the length of memory copies. If this hardware was
available, a local attacker could exploit this to crash the system or gain
root privileges. (CVE-2011-2700)
Herbert Xu discovered that certain fields were incorrectly handled when
Generic Receive Offload (CVE-2011-2723)
Time Warns discovered that long symlinks were incorrectly handled on Be
filesystems. A local attacker could exploit this with a malformed Be
filesystem and crash the system, leading to a denial of service.
(CVE-2011-2928)
Dan Kaminsky discovered that the kernel incorrectly handled random sequence
number generation. An attacker could use this flaw to possibly predict
sequence numbers and inject packets. (CVE-2011-3188)
Darren Lavender discovered that the CIFS client incorrectly handled certain
large values. A remote attacker with a malicious server could exploit this
to crash the system or possibly execute arbitrary code as the root user.
(CVE-2011-3191)
