Description

Mikulas Patocka discovered that the asynchronous multibuffer cryptographic daemon (mcryptd) in the Linux kernel did not properly handle being invoked with incompatible algorithms. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2016-10147)

It was discovered that a use-after-free existed in the KVM susbsystem of the Linux kernel when creating devices. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2016-10150)

Qidan He discovered that the ICMP implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly check the size of an ICMP header. A local attacker with CAP_NET_ADMIN could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2016-8399)

Qian Zhang discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in the tipc_msg_build() function in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possible execute arbitrary code with administrative privileges. (CVE-2016-8632)

Dmitry Vyukov discovered that the KVM implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly restrict the VCPU index when I/O APIC is enabled, An attacker in a guest VM could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly gain privileges in the host OS. (CVE-2016-9777)
