1 CVE-2009-2692 119 2 Overflow +Priv 2009-08-14 2018-10-10
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
The Linux kernel 2.6.0 through, and 2.4.4 through, does not initialize all function pointers for socket operations in proto_ops structures, which allows local users to trigger a NULL pointer dereference and gain privileges by using mmap to map page zero, placing arbitrary code on this page, and then invoking an unavailable operation, as demonstrated by the sendpage operation (sock_sendpage function) on a PF_PPPOX socket.
2 CVE-2008-4609 16 DoS 2008-10-20 2022-12-14
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.
3 CVE-2008-1673 119 DoS Exec Code Overflow 2008-06-10 2023-02-13
None Remote Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
The asn1 implementation in (a) the Linux kernel 2.4 before and 2.6 before, as used in the cifs and ip_nat_snmp_basic modules; and (b) the gxsnmp package; does not properly validate length values during decoding of ASN.1 BER data, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or execute arbitrary code via (1) a length greater than the working buffer, which can lead to an unspecified overflow; (2) an oid length of zero, which can lead to an off-by-one error; or (3) an indefinite length for a primitive encoding.
4 CVE-2006-6106 119 DoS Exec Code Overflow 2006-12-19 2018-10-17
None Remote Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
Multiple buffer overflows in the cmtp_recv_interopmsg function in the Bluetooth driver (net/bluetooth/cmtp/capi.c) in the Linux kernel 2.4.22 up to and 2.6.2 before, and 2.6.19.x, allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via CAPI messages with a large value for the length of the (1) manu (manufacturer) or (2) serial (serial number) field.
5 CVE-2006-4814 399 2006-12-20 2017-10-11
None Local Low ??? None None Complete
The mincore function in the Linux kernel before does not properly lock access to user space, which has unspecified impact and attack vectors, possibly related to a deadlock.
6 CVE-2005-4881 200 +Info 2009-10-19 2017-10-11
None Local Low Not required Complete None None
The netlink subsystem in the Linux kernel 2.4.x before and 2.6.x before 2.6.13-rc1 does not initialize certain padding fields in structures, which might allow local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via unspecified vectors, related to the (1) tc_fill_qdisc, (2) tcf_fill_node, (3) neightbl_fill_info, (4) neightbl_fill_param_info, (5) neigh_fill_info, (6) rtnetlink_fill_ifinfo, (7) rtnetlink_fill_iwinfo, (8) vif_delete, (9) ipmr_destroy_unres, (10) ipmr_cache_alloc_unres, (11) ipmr_cache_resolve, (12) inet6_fill_ifinfo, (13) tca_get_fill, (14) tca_action_flush, (15) tcf_add_notify, (16) tc_dump_action, (17) cbq_dump_police, (18) __nlmsg_put, (19) __rta_fill, (20) __rta_reserve, (21) inet6_fill_prefix, (22) rsvp_dump, and (23) cbq_dump_ovl functions.
7 CVE-2005-2709 399 DoS Exec Code 2005-11-20 2018-10-19
None Local Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
The sysctl functionality (sysctl.c) in Linux kernel before allows local users to cause a denial of service (kernel oops) and possibly execute code by opening an interface file in /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/, waiting until the interface is unregistered, then obtaining and modifying function pointers in memory that was used for the ctl_table.
8 CVE-2004-2731 189 Exec Code Overflow 2004-12-31 2008-09-05
None Local Medium Not required Partial Partial Partial
Multiple integer overflows in Sbus PROM driver (drivers/sbus/char/openprom.c) for the Linux kernel 2.4.x up to 2.4.27, 2.6.x up to 2.6.7, and possibly later versions, allow local users to execute arbitrary code by specifying (1) a small buffer size to the copyin_string function or (2) a negative buffer size to the copyin function.
