Ubuntu Security Notice 1202-1 - Dan Rosenberg discovered that several network ioctls did not clear kernel memory correctly. A local user could exploit this to read kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy. Brad Spengler discovered that stack memory for new a process was not correctly calculated. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. Dan Rosenberg discovered that the Linux kernel TIPC implementation contained multiple integer signedness errors. A local attacker could exploit this to gain root privileges. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 1164-1 - 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. Dan Rosenberg discovered that the CAN protocol on 64bit systems did not correctly calculate the size of certain buffers. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system or possibly execute arbitrary code as the root user. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 1146-1 - Kees Cook discovered that some ethtool functions did not correctly clear heap memory. A local attacker with CAP_NET_ADMIN privileges could exploit this to read portions of kernel heap memory, leading to a loss of privacy. Kees Cook discovered that the IOWarrior USB device driver did not correctly check certain size fields. A local attacker with physical access could plug in a specially crafted USB device to crash the system or potentially gain root privileges. Various other issues were also addressed.
