Description

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel’s tkill and tgkill system calls when used from compat processes. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive kernel memory. (CVE-2013-2141)

A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel’s perf events subsystem for Intel Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge processors. A local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2013-2146)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel’s crypto API. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel’s stack memory. (CVE-2013-3076)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel’s rcvmsg path for ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode). A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel’s stack memory. (CVE-2013-3222)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel’s recvmsg path for ax25 address family. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel’s stack memory. (CVE-2013-3223)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel’s recvmsg path for the bluetooth address family. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel’s stack memory. (CVE-2013-3224)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel’s bluetooth rfcomm protocol support. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel’s stack memory. (CVE-2013-3225)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel’s bluetooth SCO sockets implementation. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel’s stack memory. (CVE-2013-3226)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel’s CAIF protocol implementation. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel’s stack memory. (CVE-2013-3227)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel’s IRDA (infrared) support subsystem. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel’s stack memory. (CVE-2013-3228)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel’s s390 - z/VM support. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel’s stack memory. (CVE-2013-3229)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel’s l2tp (Layer Two Tunneling Protocol) implementation. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel’s stack memory. (CVE-2013-3230)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel’s llc (Logical Link Layer 2) support. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel’s stack memory. (CVE-2013-3231)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel’s receive message handling for the netrom address family. A local user could exploit this flaw to obtain sensitive information from the kernel’s stack memory. (CVE-2013-3232)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel’s nfc (near field communication) support. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel’s stack memory. (CVE-2013-3233)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel’s Rose X.25 protocol layer. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel’s stack memory. (CVE-2013-3234)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel’s TIPC (Transparent Inter Process Communication) protocol implementation. A local user could exploit this flaw to examine potentially sensitive information from the kernel’s stack memory. (CVE-2013-3235)
