Ubuntu Security Notice 1934-1 - Chanam Park reported a Null pointer flaw in the Linux kernel's Ceph client. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash). An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's fanotify interface. A local user could exploit this flaw to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory. Kees Cook discovered a format string vulnerability in the Linux kernel's disk block layer. A local user with administrator privileges could exploit this flaw to gain kernel privileges. Various other issues were also addressed.

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

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

- Ubuntu 13.04

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.

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

Details:

Chanam Park reported a Null pointer flaw in the Linux kernel's Ceph client.
A remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service
(system crash). (CVE-2013-1059)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's fanotify
interface. A local user could exploit this flaw to obtain sensitive
information from kernel memory. (CVE-2013-2148)

Kees Cook discovered a format string vulnerability in the Linux kernel's
disk block layer. A local user with administrator privileges could exploit
this flaw to gain kernel privileges. (CVE-2013-2851)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 13.04:
linux-image-3.5.0-231-omap4 3.5.0-231.47

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.
