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.

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.
5 CVE-2008-3276 189 DoS Overflow 2008-08-18 2018-10-30
7.1
None Remote Medium Not required None None Complete
Integer overflow in the dccp_setsockopt_change function in net/dccp/proto.c in the Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP) subsystem in the Linux kernel 2.6.17-rc1 through 2.6.26.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via a crafted integer value, related to Change L and Change R options without at least one byte in the dccpsf_val field.

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.
7 CVE-2008-3077 399 DoS 2008-07-08 2018-10-30
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 2018-10-30
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.

Integer overflow in the sctp_getsockopt_local_addrs_old function in net/sctp/socket.c in the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (sctp) functionality in the Linux kernel before 2.6.25.9 allows local users to cause a denial of service (resource consumption and system outage) via vectors involving a large addr_num field in an sctp_getaddrs_old data structure.
10 CVE-2008-2812 20 DoS +Priv 2008-07-08 2018-10-30
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/.

7.8
None Remote Low Not required None None Complete
The pppol2tp_recvmsg function in drivers/net/pppol2tp.c in the Linux kernel 2.6 before 2.6.26-rc6 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (kernel heap memory corruption and system crash) and possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted PPPOL2TP packet that results in a large value for a certain length variable.
12 CVE-2008-2365 362 DoS 2008-06-30 2018-10-30
4.7
None Local Medium Not required None None Complete
Race condition in the ptrace and utrace support in the Linux kernel 2.6.9 through 2.6.25, as used in Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 4, allows local users to cause a denial of service (oops) via a long series of PTRACE_ATTACH ptrace calls to another user's process that trigger a conflict between utrace_detach and report_quiescent, related to "late ptrace_may_attach() check" and "race around &dead_engine_ops setting," a different vulnerability than CVE-2007-0771 and CVE-2008-1514. NOTE: this issue might only affect kernel versions before 2.6.16.x.
