Description

Jonathan Salwan discovered an information leak in the Linux kernel's cdrom driver. A local user can exploit this leak to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory if the CD-ROM drive is malfunctioning. (CVE-2013-2164)

A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel when an IPv6 socket is used to connect to an IPv4 destination. An unprivileged local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2013-2232)

An information leak was discovered in the IPSec key_socket implementation in the Linux kernel. An local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information in kernel memory. (CVE-2013-2234)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's IPSec key_socket when using the notify_policy interface. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information in kernel memory. (CVE-2013-2237)

Kees Cook discovered a format string vulnerability in the Linux kernel's disk block layer. A local user with administrator privileges could exploit this flaw to gain kernel privileges. (CVE-2013-2851).

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.
