Description

Stephan Mueller reported a flaw in the Linux kernel's dl2k network driver's handling of ioctls. An unprivileged local user could leverage this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2012-2313)

Timo Warns reported multiple flaws in the Linux kernel's hfsplus filesystem. An unprivileged local user could exploit these flaws to gain root system priviliges. (CVE-2012-2319).

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.
