Ubuntu Security Notice 1285-1 - Andrea Righi discovered a race condition in the KSM memory merging support. If KSM was being used, a local attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. Vasily Averin discovered that the NFS Lock Manager (NLM) incorrectly handled unlock requests. A local attacker could exploit this to cause a denial of service. Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that taskstats did not enforce access restrictions. A local attacker could exploit this to read certain information, leading to a loss of privacy. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 1256-1 - It was discovered that the /proc filesystem did not correctly handle permission changes when programs executed. A local attacker could hold open files to examine details about programs running with higher privileges, potentially increasing the chances of exploiting additional vulnerabilities. Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that the Bluetooth stack did not correctly clear memory. A local attacker could exploit this to read kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy. Various other issues were also addressed.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2011-1189-01
Posted Aug 24, 2011
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2011-1189-01 - Updated kernel packages that fix several security issues, various bugs, and add two enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Using PCI passthrough without interrupt remapping support allowed KVM guests to generate MSI interrupts and thus potentially inject traps. A privileged guest user could use this flaw to crash the host or possibly escalate their privileges on the host. The fix for this issue can prevent PCI passthrough working and guests starting. Flaw in the client-side NLM implementation could allow a local, unprivileged user to cause a denial of service.
