Description

The kernel key management code did not correctly handle key reuse. A local attacker could create many key requests, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2007-0006)

The kernel NFS code did not correctly validate NFSACL2 ACCESS requests.
If a system was serving NFS mounts, a remote attacker could send a specially crafted packet, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2007-0772)

When dumping core, the kernel did not correctly handle PT_INTERP processes. A local attacker could create situations where they could read the contents of otherwise unreadable executable programs. (CVE-2007-0958)
