Ubuntu Security Notice 1440-1 - A flaw was found in the Linux's kernels ext4 file system when mounted with a journal. A local, unprivileged user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service. Sasha Levin discovered a flaw in the permission checking for device assignments requested via the kvm ioctl in the Linux kernel. A local user could use this flaw to crash the system causing a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

linux-lts-backport-natty vulnerabilities
============================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-lts-backport-natty: Linux kernel backport from Natty

Details:

A flaw was found in the Linux's kernels ext4 file system when mounted with
a journal. A local, unprivileged user could exploit this flaw to cause a
denial of service. (CVE-2011-4086)

Sasha Levin discovered a flaw in the permission checking for device
assignments requested via the kvm ioctl in the Linux kernel. A local user
could use this flaw to crash the system causing a denial of service.
(CVE-2011-4347)

Stephan B=C3=A4rwolf discovered a flaw in the KVM (kernel-based virtual
machine) subsystem of the Linux kernel. A local unprivileged user can crash
use this flaw to crash VMs causing a deny of service. (CVE-2012-0045)

A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel's cifs file system. An
unprivileged local user could exploit this flaw to crash the system leading
to a denial of service. (CVE-2012-1090)

H. Peter Anvin reported a flaw in the Linux kernel that could crash the
system. A local user could exploit this flaw to crash the system.
(CVE-2012-1097)

A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel's cgroups subset. A local
attacker could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2012-1146)

A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's ext4 file system when mounting a
corrupt filesystem. A user-assisted remote attacker could exploit this flaw
to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2012-2100)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
linux-image-2.6.38-15-generic 2.6.38-15.59~lucid1
linux-image-2.6.38-15-generic-pae 2.6.38-15.59~lucid1
linux-image-2.6.38-15-server 2.6.38-15.59~lucid1
linux-image-2.6.38-15-virtual 2.6.38-15.59~lucid1

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

ATTENTION: Due to an unavoidable ABI change the kernel updates have
been given a new version number, which requires you to recompile and
reinstall all third party kernel modules you might have installed. If
you use linux-restricted-modules, you have to update that package as
well to get modules which work with the new kernel version. Unless you
manually uninstalled the standard kernel metapackages (e.g. linux-generic,
linux-server, linux-powerpc), a standard system upgrade will automatically
perform this as well.
