Ubuntu Security Notice 1976-1 - An information leak was discovered in the handling of ICMPv6 Router Advertisement (RA) messages in the Linux kernel's IPv6 network stack. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (excessive retries and address-generation outage), and consequently obtain sensitive information. Kees Cook discovered flaw in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem of the Linux kernel. A physically proximate attacker could exploit this flaw to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via a specially crafted device that provides an invalid Report ID. Various other issues were also addressed.

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:

An information leak was discovered in the handling of ICMPv6 Router
Advertisement (RA) messages in the Linux kernel's IPv6 network stack. A
remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service
(excessive retries and address-generation outage), and consequently obtain
sensitive information. (CVE-2013-0343)

Kees Cook discovered flaw in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem of
the Linux kernel. A physically proximate attacker could exploit this flaw
to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (heap memory
corruption) via a specially crafted device that provides an invalid Report
ID. (CVE-2013-2888)

Kees Cook discovered a flaw in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem
of the Linux kerenl when CONFIG_HID_PANTHERLORD is enabled. A physically
proximate attacker could cause a denial of service (heap out-of-bounds
write) via a specially crafted device. (CVE-2013-2892)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
linux-image-2.6.32-52-386 2.6.32-52.114
linux-image-2.6.32-52-generic 2.6.32-52.114
linux-image-2.6.32-52-generic-pae 2.6.32-52.114
linux-image-2.6.32-52-ia64 2.6.32-52.114
linux-image-2.6.32-52-lpia 2.6.32-52.114
linux-image-2.6.32-52-powerpc 2.6.32-52.114
linux-image-2.6.32-52-powerpc-smp 2.6.32-52.114
linux-image-2.6.32-52-powerpc64-smp 2.6.32-52.114
linux-image-2.6.32-52-preempt 2.6.32-52.114
linux-image-2.6.32-52-server 2.6.32-52.114
linux-image-2.6.32-52-sparc64 2.6.32-52.114
linux-image-2.6.32-52-sparc64-smp 2.6.32-52.114
linux-image-2.6.32-52-versatile 2.6.32-52.114
linux-image-2.6.32-52-virtual 2.6.32-52.114

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.
