1 CVE-2008-4609 16 DoS 2008-10-20 2013-10-10
7.1
None Remote Medium Not required None None Complete
The TCP implementation in (1) Linux, (2) platforms based on BSD Unix, (3) Microsoft Windows, (4) Cisco products, and probably other operating systems allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (connection queue exhaustion) via multiple vectors that manipulate information in the TCP state table, as demonstrated by sockstress.
2 CVE-2008-3535 189 DoS 2008-08-08 2012-03-19
4.9
None Local Low Not required None None Complete
Off-by-one error in the iov_iter_advance function in mm/filemap.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27-rc2 allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a certain sequence of file I/O operations with readv and writev, as demonstrated by testcases/kernel/fs/ftest/ftest03 from the Linux Test Project.
3 CVE-2008-3534 399 DoS 2008-08-08 2012-03-19
4.9
None Local Low Not required None None Complete
The shmem_delete_inode function in mm/shmem.c in the tmpfs implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.26.1 allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a certain sequence of file create, remove, and overwrite operations, as demonstrated by the insserv program, related to allocation of "useless pages" and improper maintenance of the i_blocks count.
4 CVE-2008-3496 119 Overflow 2008-08-06 2012-03-19
10.0
None Remote Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
Buffer overflow in format descriptor parsing in the uvc_parse_format function in drivers/media/video/uvc/uvc_driver.c in uvcvideo in the video4linux (V4L) implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.26.1 has unknown impact and attack vectors.
5 CVE-2008-3275 399 DoS Overflow 2008-08-12 2012-10-29
4.9
None Local Low Not required None None Complete
The (1) real_lookup and (2) __lookup_hash functions in fs/namei.c in the vfs implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.25.15 do not prevent creation of a child dentry for a deleted (aka S_DEAD) directory, which allows local users to cause a denial of service ("overflow" of the UBIFS orphan area) via a series of attempted file creations within deleted directories.
6 CVE-2008-3272 189 +Info 2008-08-08 2012-10-29
6.6
None Local Low Not required Complete None Complete
The snd_seq_oss_synth_make_info function in sound/core/seq/oss/seq_oss_synth.c in the sound subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27-rc2 does not verify that the device number is within the range defined by max_synthdev before returning certain data to the caller, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information.
7 CVE-2008-3077 399 DoS 2008-07-08 2012-03-19
4.9
None Local Low Not required None None Complete
arch/x86/kernel/ptrace.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.25.10 on the x86_64 platform leaks task_struct references into the sys32_ptrace function, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) or have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors, possibly a use-after-free vulnerability.
8 CVE-2008-2931 264 DoS +Priv 2008-07-09 2012-11-26
6.9
Admin Local Medium Not required Complete Complete Complete
The do_change_type function in fs/namespace.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.22 does not verify that the caller has the CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability, which allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service by modifying the properties of a mountpoint.
9 CVE-2008-2812 20 DoS +Priv 2008-07-08 2012-11-26
7.2
Admin Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
The Linux kernel before 2.6.25.10 does not properly perform tty operations, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly gain privileges via vectors involving NULL pointer dereference of function pointers in (1) hamradio/6pack.c, (2) hamradio/mkiss.c, (3) irda/irtty-sir.c, (4) ppp_async.c, (5) ppp_synctty.c, (6) slip.c, (7) wan/x25_asy.c, and (8) wireless/strip.c in drivers/net/.
10 CVE-2007-6716 DoS 2008-09-04 2012-10-29
4.7
None Local Medium Not required None None Complete
fs/direct-io.c in the dio subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.23 does not properly zero out the dio struct, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS), as demonstrated by a certain fio test.
