1 CVE-2007-6206 16 +Info 2007-12-03 2012-03-19
2.1
None Local Low Not required Partial None None
The do_coredump function in fs/exec.c in Linux kernel 2.4.x and 2.6.x up to 2.6.24-rc3, and possibly other versions, does not change the UID of a core dump file if it exists before a root process creates a core dump in the same location, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information.
2 CVE-2007-5093 399 DoS 2007-09-26 2010-08-21
4.0
None Local High Not required None None Complete
The disconnect method in the Philips USB Webcam (pwc) driver in Linux kernel 2.6.x before 2.6.22.6 "relies on user space to close the device," which allows user-assisted local attackers to cause a denial of service (USB subsystem hang and CPU consumption in khubd) by not closing the device after the disconnect is invoked. NOTE: this rarely crosses privilege boundaries, unless the attacker can convince the victim to unplug the affected device.
3 CVE-2007-3642 189 DoS 2007-07-09 2012-10-30
7.8
None Remote Low Not required None None Complete
The decode_choice function in net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_h323_asn1.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.20.15, 2.6.21.x before 2.6.21.6, and before 2.6.22 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via an encoded, out-of-range index value for a choice field, which triggers a NULL pointer dereference.
4 CVE-2007-2876 DoS 2007-06-11 2012-10-30
6.1
None Local Network Low Not required None None Complete
The sctp_new function in (1) ip_conntrack_proto_sctp.c and (2) nf_conntrack_proto_sctp.c in Netfilter in Linux kernel 2.6 before 2.6.20.13, and 2.6.21.x before 2.6.21.4, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service by causing certain invalid states that trigger a NULL pointer dereference.
5 CVE-2007-2453 2007-06-11 2012-10-30
1.2
None Local High Not required Partial None None
The random number feature in Linux kernel 2.6 before 2.6.20.13, and 2.6.21.x before 2.6.21.4, (1) does not properly seed pools when there is no entropy, or (2) uses an incorrect cast when extracting entropy, which might cause the random number generator to provide the same values after reboots on systems without an entropy source.
6 CVE-2007-1861 399 DoS Overflow 2007-05-07 2012-03-19
4.9
None Local Low Not required None None Complete
The nl_fib_lookup function in net/ipv4/fib_frontend.c in Linux Kernel before 2.6.20.8 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (kernel panic) via NETLINK_FIB_LOOKUP replies, which trigger infinite recursion and a stack overflow.
7 CVE-2007-1592 119 DoS Overflow 2007-03-22 2013-08-29
4.9
None Local Low Not required None None Complete
net/ipv6/tcp_ipv6.c in Linux kernel 2.6.x up to 2.6.21-rc3 inadvertently copies the ipv6_fl_socklist from a listening TCP socket to child sockets, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS) or double free by opening a listening IPv6 socket, attaching a flow label, and connecting to that socket.
8 CVE-2007-0958 2007-02-15 2010-09-15
2.1
None Local Low Not required Partial None None
Linux kernel 2.6.x before 2.6.20 allows local users to read unreadable binaries by using the interpreter (PT_INTERP) functionality and triggering a core dump, a variant of CVE-2004-1073.
