Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-1042-01

Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-1042-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. A local, unprivileged user could use an integer overflow flaw in drm_mode_dirtyfb_ioctl() to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges. It was found that the kvm_vm_ioctl_assign_device() function in the KVM subsystem of a Linux kernel did not check if the user requesting device assignment was privileged or not. A local, unprivileged user on the host could assign unused PCI devices, or even devices that were in use and whose resources were not properly claimed by the respective drivers, which could result in the host crashing.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-0743-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. A local, unprivileged user could use an integer overflow flaw in drm_mode_dirtyfb_ioctl() to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges. A buffer overflow flaw was found in the macvtap device driver, used for creating a bridged network between the guest and the host in KVM environments. A privileged guest user in a KVM guest could use this flaw to crash the host. Note: This issue only affected hosts that have the vhost_net module loaded with the experimental_zcopytx module option enabled, and that also have macvtap configured for at least one guest.

Ubuntu Security Notice 1433-1 - A flaw was found in the Linux's kernels ext4 file system when mounted with a journal. A local, unprivileged user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service. Sasha Levin discovered a flaw in the permission checking for device assignments requested via the kvm ioctl in the Linux kernel. A local user could use this flaw to crash the system causing a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.
