"Chanam Park reported a NULL pointer flaw in the Linux kernel's Ceph
client. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of
service (system crash). (CVE-2013-1059)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel's fanotify
interface. A local user could exploit this flaw to obtain sensitive
information from kernel memory. (CVE-2013-2148)

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)

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."
