1 CVE-2012-2319 264 Overflow +Priv 2012-05-17 2013-04-18
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
Multiple buffer overflows in the hfsplus filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.3.5 allow local users to gain privileges via a crafted HFS plus filesystem, a related issue to CVE-2009-4020.
2 CVE-2012-2136 20 DoS Overflow +Priv 2012-08-09 2013-03-01
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
The sock_alloc_send_pskb function in net/core/sock.c in the Linux kernel before 3.4.5 does not properly validate a certain length value, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow and system crash) or possibly gain privileges by leveraging access to a TUN/TAP device.
3 CVE-2012-2133 399 DoS +Priv 2012-07-03 2012-08-13
4.0
None Local High Not required None None Complete
Use-after-free vulnerability in the Linux kernel before 3.3.6, when huge pages are enabled, allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly gain privileges by interacting with a hugetlbfs filesystem, as demonstrated by a umount operation that triggers improper handling of quota data.
4 CVE-2012-0056 264 +Priv 2012-01-27 2012-03-22
6.9
None Local Medium Not required Complete Complete Complete
The mem_write function in Linux kernel 2.6.39 and other versions, when ASLR is disabled, does not properly check permissions when writing to /proc/<pid>/mem, which allows local users to gain privileges by modifying process memory, as demonstrated by Mempodipper.
5 CVE-2012-0044 189 DoS Overflow +Priv Mem. Corr. 2012-05-17 2013-04-18
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
Integer overflow in the drm_mode_dirtyfb_ioctl function in drivers/gpu/drm/drm_crtc.c in the Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.1.5 allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (memory corruption) via a crafted ioctl call.
6 CVE-2012-0028 264 DoS +Priv 2012-06-21 2012-06-22
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
The robust futex implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.28 does not properly handle processes that make exec system calls, which allows local users to cause a denial of service or possibly gain privileges by writing to a memory location in a child process.
7 CVE-2011-2517 119 Overflow +Priv 2012-05-24 2013-12-30
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
Multiple buffer overflows in net/wireless/nl80211.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.39.2 allow local users to gain privileges by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability during scan operations with a long SSID value.
8 CVE-2011-2211 264 +Priv 2012-06-13 2012-06-13
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
The osf_wait4 function in arch/alpha/kernel/osf_sys.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.39.4 on the Alpha platform uses an incorrect pointer, which allows local users to gain privileges by writing a certain integer value to kernel memory.
9 CVE-2011-2182 119 Overflow +Priv +Info 2012-06-13 2012-06-13
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
The ldm_frag_add function in fs/partitions/ldm.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.39.1 does not properly handle memory allocation for non-initial fragments, which might allow local users to conduct buffer overflow attacks, and gain privileges or obtain sensitive information, via a crafted LDM partition table. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2011-1017.
10 CVE-2011-1759 189 DoS Overflow +Priv Mem. Corr. 2012-06-13 2012-06-14
6.2
None Local High Not required Complete Complete Complete
Integer overflow in the sys_oabi_semtimedop function in arch/arm/kernel/sys_oabi-compat.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.39 on the ARM platform, when CONFIG_OABI_COMPAT is enabled, allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) by providing a crafted argument and leveraging a race condition.
11 CVE-2011-1477 DoS +Priv Mem. Corr. 2012-06-21 2012-06-22
4.6
None Local Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
Multiple array index errors in sound/oss/opl3.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.39 allow local users to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) or possibly gain privileges by leveraging write access to /dev/sequencer.
