Details

It was discovered that the /proc filesystem did not correctly handle
permission changes when programs executed. A local attacker could hold open
files to examine details about programs running with higher privileges,
potentially increasing the chances of exploiting additional
vulnerabilities. (CVE-2011-1020)

Dan Rosenberg discovered that the X.25 Rose network stack did not correctly
handle certain fields. If a system was running with Rose enabled, a remote
attacker could send specially crafted traffic to gain root privileges.
(CVE-2011-1493)

Dan Rosenberg discovered that the DCCP stack did not correctly handle
certain packet structures. A remote attacker could exploit this to crash
the system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-1770)

Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that taskstats listeners were not correctly
handled. A local attacker could expoit this to exhaust memory and CPU
resources, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2011-2484)

It was discovered that Bluetooth l2cap and rfcomm did not correctly
initialize structures. A local attacker could exploit this to read portions
of the kernel stack, leading to a loss of privacy. (CVE-2011-2492)

A flaw was found in the Linux kernel’s /proc/_/_map* interface. A local,
unprivileged user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service.
(CVE-2011-3637)

Ben Hutchings discovered several flaws in the Linux Rose (X.25 PLP) layer.
A local user or a remote user on an X.25 network could exploit these flaws
to execute arbitrary code as root. (CVE-2011-4914)
