Description

An information leak was discovered in the handling of ICMPv6 Router Advertisement (RA) messages in the Linux kernel's IPv6 network stack. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (excessive retries and address-generation outage), and consequently obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2013-0343)

Kees Cook discovered flaw in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem of the Linux kernel. A physically proximate attacker could exploit this flaw to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via a specially crafted device that provides an invalid Report ID. (CVE-2013-2888)

Kees Cook discovered a flaw in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem of the Linux kerenl when CONFIG_HID_PANTHERLORD is enabled. A physically proximate attacker could cause a denial of service (heap out-of-bounds write) via a specially crafted device. (CVE-2013-2892).

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.
