Debian Security Advisory DSA-2926-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Moritz Muehlenhoff May 12, 2014 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : linux CVE ID : CVE-2014-0196 CVE-2014-1737 CVE-2014-1738 CVE-2014-2851 CVE-2014-3122

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a denial of service, information leaks or privilege escalation:

CVE-2014-0196

Jiri Slaby discovered a race condition in the pty layer, which could
lead to denial of service or privilege escalation.

CVE-2014-1737 / CVE-2014-1738

Matthew Daley discovered that missing input sanitising in the
FDRAWCMD ioctl and an information leak could result in privilege
escalation.

CVE-2014-2851

Incorrect reference counting in the ping_init_sock() function allows
denial of service or privilege escalation.

CVE-2014-3122

Incorrect locking of memory can result in local denial of service.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 3.2.57-3+deb7u1. This update also fixes a regression in the isci driver and suspend problems with certain AMD CPUs (introduced in the updated kernel from the Wheezy 7.5 point release).

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your linux packages.
