Description

Brad Spengler discovered a flaw in the Linux kernel's uname system call. An unprivileged user could exploit this flaw to read kernel stack memory. (CVE-2012-0957)

Rodrigo Freire discovered a flaw in the Linux kernel's TCP illinois congestion control algorithm. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2012-4565)
