Ubuntu Security Notice 1212-1 - Goldwyn Rodrigues discovered that the OCFS2 filesystem did not correctly clear memory when writing certain file holes. A local attacker could exploit this to read uninitialized data from the disk, leading to a loss of privacy. Timo Warns discovered that the LDM disk partition handling code did not correctly handle certain values. By inserting a specially crafted disk device, a local attacker could exploit this to gain root privileges. Various other issues were also addressed.

linux-ti-omap4 vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 11.04

Summary:

Multiple kernel flaws have been fixed.

Software Description:
- linux-ti-omap4: Linux kernel for OMAP4

Details:

Goldwyn Rodrigues discovered that the OCFS2 filesystem did not correctly
clear memory when writing certain file holes. A local attacker could
exploit this to read uninitialized data from the disk, leading to a loss of
privacy. (CVE-2011-0463)

Timo Warns discovered that the LDM disk partition handling code did not
correctly handle certain values. By inserting a specially crafted disk
device, a local attacker could exploit this to gain root privileges.
(CVE-2011-1017)

It was discovered that the /proc filesystem did not correctly handle
permission changes when programs executed. A local attacker could hold open
files to examine details about programs running with higher privileges,
potentially increasing the chances of exploiting additional
vulnerabilities. (CVE-2011-1020)

Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that the Bluetooth stack did not correctly clear
memory. A local attacker could exploit this to read kernel stack memory,
leading to a loss of privacy. (CVE-2011-1078)

Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that the Bluetooth stack did not correctly check
that device name strings were NULL terminated. A local attacker could
exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service, or leak
contents of kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy.
(CVE-2011-1079)

Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that bridge network filtering did not check that
name fields were NULL terminated. A local attacker could exploit this to
leak contents of kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy.
(CVE-2011-1080)

Peter Huewe discovered that the TPM device did not correctly initialize
memory. A local attacker could exploit this to read kernel heap memory
contents, leading to a loss of privacy. (CVE-2011-1160)

Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that the netfilter code did not check certain
strings copied from userspace. A local attacker with netfilter access could
exploit this to read kernel memory or crash the system, leading to a denial
of service. (CVE-2011-1170, CVE-2011-1171, CVE-2011-1172, CVE-2011-2534)

Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that the Acorn Universal Networking driver did
not correctly initialize memory. A remote attacker could send specially
crafted traffic to read kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy.
(CVE-2011-1173)

Dan Rosenberg discovered that the IRDA subsystem did not correctly check
certain field sizes. If a system was using IRDA, a remote attacker could
send specially crafted traffic to crash the system or gain root privileges.
(CVE-2011-1180)

Julien Tinnes discovered that the kernel did not correctly validate the
signal structure from tkill(). A local attacker could exploit this to send
signals to arbitrary threads, possibly bypassing expected restrictions.
(CVE-2011-1182)

Dan Rosenberg discovered that the X.25 Rose network stack did not correctly
handle certain fields. If a system was running with Rose enabled, a remote
attacker could send specially crafted traffic to gain root privileges.
(CVE-2011-1493)

Dan Rosenberg discovered that MPT devices did not correctly validate
certain values in ioctl calls. If these drivers were loaded, a local
attacker could exploit this to read arbitrary kernel memory, leading to a
loss of privacy. (CVE-2011-1494, CVE-2011-1495)

Timo Warns discovered that the GUID partition parsing routines did not
correctly validate certain structures. A local attacker with physical
access could plug in a specially crafted block device to crash the system,
leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-1577)

Phil Oester discovered that the network bonding system did not correctly
handle large queues. On some systems, a remote attacker could send
specially crafted traffic to crash the system, leading to a denial of
service. (CVE-2011-1581)

Tavis Ormandy discovered that the pidmap function did not correctly handle
large requests. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system,
leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-1593)

Oliver Hartkopp and Dave Jones discovered that the CAN network driver did
not correctly validate certain socket structures. If this driver was
loaded, a local attacker could crash the system, leading to a denial of
service. (CVE-2011-1598, CVE-2011-1748)

Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that the AGP driver did not check certain ioctl
values. A local attacker with access to the video subsystem could exploit
this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service, or possibly gain
root privileges. (CVE-2011-1745, CVE-2011-2022)

Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that the AGP driver did not check the size of
certain memory allocations. A local attacker with access to the video
subsystem could exploit this to run the system out of memory, leading to a
denial of service. (CVE-2011-1746)

Dan Rosenberg discovered that the DCCP stack did not correctly handle
certain packet structures. A remote attacker could exploit this to crash
the system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-1770)

Ben Greear discovered that CIFS did not correctly handle direct I/O. A
local attacker with access to a CIFS partition could exploit this to crash
the system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-1771)

Vasiliy Kulikov and Dan Rosenberg discovered that ecryptfs did not
correctly check the origin of mount points. A local attacker could exploit
this to trick the system into unmounting arbitrary mount points, leading to
a denial of service. (CVE-2011-1833)

Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that taskstats listeners were not correctly
handled. A local attacker could expoit this to exhaust memory and CPU
resources, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-2484)

It was discovered that Bluetooth l2cap and rfcomm did not correctly
initialize structures. A local attacker could exploit this to read portions
of the kernel stack, leading to a loss of privacy. (CVE-2011-2492)

Sami Liedes discovered that ext4 did not correctly handle missing root
inodes. A local attacker could trigger the mount of a specially crafted
filesystem to cause the system to crash, leading to a denial of service.
(CVE-2011-2493)

It was discovered that GFS2 did not correctly check block sizes. A local
attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of
service. (CVE-2011-2689)

Fernando Gont discovered that the IPv6 stack used predictable fragment
identification numbers. A remote attacker could exploit this to exhaust
network resources, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-2699)

The performance counter subsystem did not correctly handle certain
counters. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading
to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-2918)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 11.04:
linux-image-2.6.38-1209-omap4 2.6.38-1209.15

After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
all the necessary changes.
