The remote Ubuntu 16.04 LTS host has a package installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the USN-4527-1 advisory.

  • A memory leak in the cx23888_ir_probe() function in drivers/media/pci/cx23885/cx23888-ir.c in the Linux kernel through 5.3.11 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering kfifo_alloc() failures, aka CID-a7b2df76b42b. (CVE-2019-19054)

  • Memory leaks in drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath9k/htc_hst.c in the Linux kernel through 5.3.11 allow attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering wait_for_completion_timeout() failures. This affects the htc_config_pipe_credits() function, the htc_setup_complete() function, and the htc_connect_service() function, aka CID-853acf7caf10. (CVE-2019-19073)

  • A memory leak in the ath9k_wmi_cmd() function in drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath9k/wmi.c in the Linux kernel through 5.3.11 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption), aka CID-728c1e2a05e4.
    (CVE-2019-19074)

  • An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel before 5.0.6. In rx_queue_add_kobject() and netdev_queue_add_kobject() in net/core/net-sysfs.c, a reference count is mishandled, aka CID-a3e23f719f5c.
    (CVE-2019-20811)

  • In the Android kernel in F2FS driver there is a possible out of bounds read due to a missing bounds check.
    This could lead to local information disclosure with system execution privileges needed. User interaction is not needed for exploitation. (CVE-2019-9445)

  • In the Android kernel in F2FS touch driver there is a possible out of bounds read due to improper input validation. This could lead to local information disclosure with system execution privileges needed. User interaction is not needed for exploitation. (CVE-2019-9453)

  • In f2fs_xattr_generic_list of xattr.c, there is a possible out of bounds read due to a missing bounds check. This could lead to local information disclosure with System execution privileges needed. User interaction is not required for exploitation.Product: Android. Versions: Android kernel. Android ID:
    A-120551147. (CVE-2020-0067)

  • A TOCTOU mismatch in the NFS client code in the Linux kernel before 5.8.3 could be used by local attackers to corrupt memory or possibly have unspecified other impact because a size check is in fs/nfs/nfs4proc.c instead of fs/nfs/nfs4xdr.c, aka CID-b4487b935452. (CVE-2020-25212)

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