1 CVE-2010-4347 264 1 +Priv 2010-12-22 2017-08-16
6.9
None Local Medium Not required Complete Complete Complete
The ACPI subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36.2 uses 0222 permissions for the debugfs custom_method file, which allows local users to gain privileges by placing a custom ACPI method in the ACPI interpreter tables, related to the acpi_debugfs_init function in drivers/acpi/debugfs.c.
2 CVE-2010-4258 264 +Priv Bypass 2010-12-30 2013-09-13
6.2
Admin Local High Not required Complete Complete Complete
The do_exit function in kernel/exit.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36.2 does not properly handle a KERNEL_DS get_fs value, which allows local users to bypass intended access_ok restrictions, overwrite arbitrary kernel memory locations, and gain privileges by leveraging a (1) BUG, (2) NULL pointer dereference, or (3) page fault, as demonstrated by vectors involving the clear_child_tid feature and the splice system call.
3 CVE-2010-3904 20 +Priv 2010-12-06 2012-03-19
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
The rds_page_copy_user function in net/rds/page.c in the Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS) protocol implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36 does not properly validate addresses obtained from user space, which allows local users to gain privileges via crafted use of the sendmsg and recvmsg system calls.
4 CVE-2010-3859 189 Overflow +Priv 2010-12-29 2013-08-21
6.9
None Local Medium Not required Complete Complete Complete
Multiple integer signedness errors in the TIPC implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36.2 allow local users to gain privileges via a crafted sendmsg call that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow, related to the tipc_msg_build function in net/tipc/msg.c and the verify_iovec function in net/core/iovec.c.
5 CVE-2010-3848 119 Overflow +Priv 2010-12-30 2012-03-19
6.9
None Local Medium Not required Complete Complete Complete
Stack-based buffer overflow in the econet_sendmsg function in net/econet/af_econet.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36.2, when an econet address is configured, allows local users to gain privileges by providing a large number of iovec structures.
6 CVE-2010-3301 +Priv 2010-09-22 2012-03-19
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
The IA32 system call emulation functionality in arch/x86/ia32/ia32entry.S in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36-rc4-git2 on the x86_64 platform does not zero extend the %eax register after the 32-bit entry path to ptrace is used, which allows local users to gain privileges by triggering an out-of-bounds access to the system call table using the %rax register. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of a CVE-2007-4573 regression.
7 CVE-2010-3081 119 Overflow +Priv 2010-09-24 2012-03-19
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
The compat_alloc_user_space functions in include/asm/compat.h files in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36-rc4-git2 on 64-bit platforms do not properly allocate the userspace memory required for the 32-bit compatibility layer, which allows local users to gain privileges by leveraging the ability of the compat_mc_getsockopt function (aka the MCAST_MSFILTER getsockopt support) to control a certain length value, related to a "stack pointer underflow" issue, as exploited in the wild in September 2010.
8 CVE-2010-2963 20 +Priv 2010-11-26 2012-03-19
6.2
None Local High Not required Complete Complete Complete
drivers/media/video/v4l2-compat-ioctl32.c in the Video4Linux (V4L) implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36 on 64-bit platforms does not validate the destination of a memory copy operation, which allows local users to write to arbitrary kernel memory locations, and consequently gain privileges, via a VIDIOCSTUNER ioctl call on a /dev/video device, followed by a VIDIOCSMICROCODE ioctl call on this device.
9 CVE-2010-2962 20 +Priv 2010-11-26 2012-03-19
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
drivers/gpu/drm/i915/i915_gem.c in the Graphics Execution Manager (GEM) in the Intel i915 driver in the Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.36 does not properly validate pointers to blocks of memory, which allows local users to write to arbitrary kernel memory locations, and consequently gain privileges, via crafted use of the ioctl interface, related to (1) pwrite and (2) pread operations.
10 CVE-2010-2492 119 DoS Overflow +Priv 2010-09-08 2012-03-19
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
Buffer overflow in the ecryptfs_uid_hash macro in fs/ecryptfs/messaging.c in the eCryptfs subsystem in the Linux kernel before 2.6.35 might allow local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (system crash) via unspecified vectors.
11 CVE-2010-1146 264 1 +Priv 2010-04-12 2017-08-16
6.9
None Local Medium Not required Complete Complete Complete
The Linux kernel 2.6.33.2 and earlier, when a ReiserFS filesystem exists, does not restrict read or write access to the .reiserfs_priv directory, which allows local users to gain privileges by modifying (1) extended attributes or (2) ACLs, as demonstrated by deleting a file under .reiserfs_priv/xattrs/.
12 CVE-2010-0298 264 DoS +Priv 2010-02-12 2017-09-18
6.5
None Remote Low Single system Partial Partial Partial
The x86 emulator in KVM 83 does not use the Current Privilege Level (CPL) and I/O Privilege Level (IOPL) in determining the memory access available to CPL3 code, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service (guest OS crash) or gain privileges on the guest OS by leveraging access to a (1) IO port or (2) MMIO region, a related issue to CVE-2010-0306.
13 CVE-2010-0291 264 DoS +Priv 2010-02-15 2017-09-18
4.6
None Local Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
The Linux kernel before 2.6.32.4 allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (panic) by calling the (1) mmap or (2) mremap function, aka the "do_mremap() mess" or "mremap/mmap mess."
14 CVE-2009-4141 399 +Priv 2010-01-19 2017-09-18
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
Use-after-free vulnerability in the fasync_helper function in fs/fcntl.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.33-rc4-git1 allows local users to gain privileges via vectors that include enabling O_ASYNC (aka FASYNC or FIOASYNC) on a locked file, and then closing this file.
