Ubuntu Security Notice 1936-1 - 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. Jonathan Salwan discovered an information leak in the Linux kernel's cdrom driver. A local user can exploit this leak to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory if the CD-ROM drive is malfunctioning. Various other issues were also addressed.

linux-lts-raring vulnerabilities
============================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-lts-raring: Linux hardware enablement kernel from Raring

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)

Jonathan Salwan discovered an information leak in the Linux kernel's cdrom
driver. A local user can exploit this leak to obtain sensitive information
from kernel memory if the CD-ROM drive is malfunctioning. (CVE-2013-2164)

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)

Kees Cook discovered a format string vulnerability in the Broadcom B43
wireless driver for the Linux kernel. A local user could exploit this flaw
to gain administrative privileges. (CVE-2013-2852)

Hannes Frederic Sowa discovered that the Linux kernel's IPv6 stack does not
correctly handle Router Advertisement (RA) message in some cases. A remote
attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system
crash). (CVE-2013-4125)

A vulnerability was discovered in the Linux kernel's vhost net driver. A
local user could cause a denial of service (system crash) by powering on a
virtual machine. (CVE-2013-4127)

Marcus Moeller and Ken Fallon discovered that the CIFS incorrectly built
certain paths. A local attacker with access to a CIFS partition could
exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service.
(CVE-2013-4247)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
linux-image-3.8.0-29-generic 3.8.0-29.42~precise1

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.
