Ubuntu Security Notice 3752-3 - It was discovered that, when attempting to handle an out-of-memory situation, a null pointer dereference could be triggered in the Linux kernel in some circumstances. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. Wen Xu discovered that the XFS filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate meta-data information. An attacker could use this to construct a malicious xfs image that, when mounted, could cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.
