Ubuntu Security Notice 2241-1 - Pinkie Pie discovered a flaw in the Linux kernel's futex subsystem. An unprivileged local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash) or gain administrative privileges. A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel virtual machine's (kvm) validation of interrupt requests (irq). A guest OS user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (host OS crash). An information leak was discovered in the netfilter subsystem of the Linux kernel. An attacker could exploit this flaw to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory. Various other issues were also addressed.

============================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 13.10

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel

Details:

Pinkie Pie discovered a flaw in the Linux kernel's futex subsystem. An
unprivileged local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of
service (system crash) or gain administrative privileges. (CVE-2014-3153)

A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel virtual machine's (kvm)
validation of interrupt requests (irq). A guest OS user could exploit this
flaw to cause a denial of service (host OS crash). (CVE-2014-0155)

An information leak was discovered in the netfilter subsystem of the Linux
kernel. An attacker could exploit this flaw to obtain sensitive information
from kernel memory. (CVE-2014-2568)

Sasha Levin reported a bug in the Linux kernel's virtual memory management
subsystem. An unprivileged local user could exploit this flaw to cause a
denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2014-3122)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 13.10:
linux-image-3.11.0-23-generic 3.11.0-23.40
linux-image-3.11.0-23-generic-lpae 3.11.0-23.40

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.
