Ubuntu Security Notice USN-1187-1
Posted Aug 9, 2011
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 1187-1 - It was discovered that KVM did not correctly initialize certain CPU registers. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. Thomas Pollet discovered that the RDS network protocol did not check certain iovec buffers. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system or possibly execute arbitrary code as the root user. Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that the Linux kernel X.25 implementation did not correctly clear kernel memory. A local attacker could exploit this to read kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 1161-1 - Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that kvm did not correctly clear memory. A local attacker could exploit this to read portions of the kernel stack, leading to a loss of privacy. Timo Warns discovered that the LDM disk partition handling code did not correctly handle certain values. By inserting a specially crafted disk device, a local attacker could exploit this to gain root privileges. Various other issues were also addressed.
