Ubuntu Security Notice 1384-1 - A bug was discovered in the Linux kernel's calculation of OOM (Out of memory) scores, that would result in the wrong process being killed. A user could use this to kill the process with the highest OOM score, even if that process belongs to another user or the system. Paolo Bonzini discovered a flaw in Linux's handling of the SG_IO ioctl command. A local user, or user in a VM could exploit this flaw to bypass restrictions and gain read/write access to all data on the affected block device. Various other issues were also addressed.
