Ubuntu Security Notice 1942-1 - 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). Vasily Kulikov discovered a flaw in the Linux Kernel's perf tool that allows for privilege escalation. A local user could exploit this flaw to run commands as root when using the perf tool. 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-ti-omap4 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-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)

Vasily Kulikov discovered a flaw in the Linux Kernel's perf tool that
allows for privilege escalation. A local user could exploit this flaw to
run commands as root when using the perf tool. (CVE-2013-1060)

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)

A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel when an IPv6 socket is used to
connect to an IPv4 destination. An unprivileged local user could exploit
this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2013-2232)

An information leak was discovered in the IPSec key_socket implementation
in the Linux kernel. An local user could exploit this flaw to examine
potentially sensitive information in kernel memory. (CVE-2013-2234)

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)

Hannes Frederic Sowa discovered a flaw in setsockopt UDP_CORK option in the
Linux kernel's IPv6 stack. A local user could exploit this flaw to cause a
denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2013-4162)

Hannes Frederic Sowa discovered a flaw in the IPv6 subsystem of the Linux
kernel when the IPV6_MTU setsockopt option has been specified in
combination with the UDP_CORK option. A local user could exploit this flaw
to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2013-4163)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
linux-image-3.2.0-1437-omap4 3.2.0-1437.56

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.
