Ubuntu Security Notice USN-1236-1
October 20, 2011

linux vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 8.04 LTS

Summary:

Multiple kernel flaws have been fixed.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel

Details:

It was discovered that the Auerswald usb driver incorrectly handled lengths
of the USB string descriptors. A local attacker with physical access could
insert a specially crafted USB device and gain root privileges.
(CVE-2009-4067)

It was discovered that the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP)
implementation incorrectly calculated lengths. If the net.sctp.addip_enable
variable was turned on, a remote attacker could send specially crafted
traffic to crash the system. (CVE-2011-1573)

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. (CVE-2011-2494)

Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that /proc/PID/io did not enforce access
restrictions. A local attacker could exploit this to read certain
information, leading to a loss of privacy. (CVE-2011-2495)

Dan Kaminsky discovered that the kernel incorrectly handled random sequence
number generation. An attacker could use this flaw to possibly predict
sequence numbers and inject packets. (CVE-2011-3188)
