"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.
(CVE-2011-4097)

A flaw was found in KVM's Programmable Interval Timer (PIT). When a
virtual interrupt control is not available a local user could use this
to cause a denial of service by starting a timer. (CVE-2011-4622)

A flaw was discovered in the XFS filesystem. If a local user mounts a
specially crafted XFS image it could potential execute arbitrary code
on the system. (CVE-2012-0038)

Andy Whitcroft discovered a that the Overlayfs filesystem was not
doing the extended permission checks needed by cgroups and Linux
Security Modules (LSMs). A local user could exploit this to by-pass
security policy and access files that should not be accessible.
(CVE-2012-0055)

A flaw was found in the linux kernels IPv4 IGMP query processing. A
remote attacker could exploit this to cause a denial of service.
(CVE-2012-0207).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues."
