The remote Ubuntu 18.04 LTS host has a package installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the USN-4369-1 advisory.

  • In the Linux kernel 5.0.21, mounting a crafted btrfs filesystem image, performing some operations, and unmounting can lead to a use-after-free in btrfs_queue_work in fs/btrfs/async-thread.c. (CVE-2019-19377)

  • In the Linux kernel 5.3.10, there is a use-after-free (read) in the perf_trace_lock_acquire function (related to include/trace/events/lock.h). (CVE-2019-19769)

  • An issue was discovered in slc_bump in drivers/net/can/slcan.c in the Linux kernel 3.16 through 5.6.2. It allows attackers to read uninitialized can_frame data, potentially containing sensitive information from kernel stack memory, if the configuration lacks CONFIG_INIT_STACK_ALL, aka CID-b9258a2cece4.
    (CVE-2020-11494)

  • An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel through 5.6.2. mpol_parse_str in mm/mempolicy.c has a stack- based out-of-bounds write because an empty nodelist is mishandled during mount option parsing, aka CID- aa9f7d5172fa. NOTE: Someone in the security community disagrees that this is a vulnerability because the issue is a bug in parsing mount options which can only be specified by a privileged user, so triggering the bug does not grant any powers not already held. (CVE-2020-11565)

  • An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel before 5.6.1. drivers/media/usb/gspca/ov519.c allows NULL pointer dereferences in ov511_mode_init_regs and ov518_mode_init_regs when there are zero endpoints, aka CID-998912346c0d. (CVE-2020-11608)

  • An issue was discovered in the stv06xx subsystem in the Linux kernel before 5.6.1.
    drivers/media/usb/gspca/stv06xx/stv06xx.c and drivers/media/usb/gspca/stv06xx/stv06xx_pb0100.c mishandle invalid descriptors, as demonstrated by a NULL pointer dereference, aka CID-485b06aadb93. (CVE-2020-11609)

  • In the Linux kernel before 5.6.1, drivers/media/usb/gspca/xirlink_cit.c (aka the Xirlink camera USB driver) mishandles invalid descriptors, aka CID-a246b4d54770. (CVE-2020-11668)

  • An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel before 5.6.5. There is a use-after-free in block/bfq-iosched.c related to bfq_idle_slice_timer_body. (CVE-2020-12657)

  • A signal access-control issue was discovered in the Linux kernel before 5.6.5, aka CID-7395ea4e65c2.
    Because exec_id in include/linux/sched.h is only 32 bits, an integer overflow can interfere with a do_notify_parent protection mechanism. A child process can send an arbitrary signal to a parent process in a different security domain. Exploitation limitations include the amount of elapsed time before an integer overflow occurs, and the lack of scenarios where signals to a parent process present a substantial operational threat. (CVE-2020-12826)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application’s self-reported version number.
