Evan Huus reported a buffer overflow in the Linux kernel’s radiotap header parsing. A remote attacker could cause a denial of service (buffer over- read) via a specially crafted header. (CVE-2013-7027)

An information leak was discovered in the Linux kernel’s SIOCWANDEV ioctl call. A local user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could exploit this flaw to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel memory. (CVE-2014-1444)
