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: Linux kernel

Details:

Mathias Krause discovered several errors in the Linux kernel's xfrm_user
implementation. A local attacker could exploit these flaws to examine parts
of kernel memory. (CVE-2012-6537)

Mathias Krause discovered information leak in the Linux kernel's compat
ioctl interface. A local user could exploit the flaw to examine parts of
kernel stack memory (CVE-2012-6539)

Mathias Krause discovered an information leak in the Linux kernel's
getsockopt for IP_VS_SO_GET_TIMEOUT. A local user could exploit this flaw
to examine parts of kernel stack memory. (CVE-2012-6540)

Emese Revfy discovered that in the Linux kernel signal handlers could leak
address information across an exec, making it possible to by pass ASLR
(Address Space Layout Randomization). A local user could use this flaw to
by pass ASLR to reliably deliver an exploit payload that would otherwise be
stopped (by ASLR). (CVE-2013-0914)

A memory use after free error was discover in the Linux kernel's tmpfs
filesystem. A local user could exploit this flaw to gain privileges or
cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2013-1767)

Mateusz Guzik discovered a race in the Linux kernel's keyring. A local user
could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2013-1792)
