Description

A flaw was discovered in the kvm (kernel virtual machine) subsystem's kvm_apic_has_events function. A unprivileged local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2015-4692)

Daniel Borkmann reported a kernel crash in the Linux kernel's BPF filter JIT optimization. A local attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2015-4700)

A flaw was discovered in how the Linux kernel handles invalid UDP checksums. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service using a flood of UDP packets with invalid checksums. (CVE-2015-5364)

A flaw was discovered in how the Linux kernel handles invalid UDP checksums. A remote attacker can cause a denial of service against applications that use epoll by injecting a single packet with an invalid checksum. (CVE-2015-5366).

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.
