Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2760-1
October 01, 2015

linux-ti-omap4 vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-ti-omap4: Linux kernel for OMAP4

Details:

It was discovered that an integer overflow error existed in the SCSI
generic (sg) driver in the Linux kernel. A local attacker with write
permission to a SCSI generic device could use this to cause a denial of
service (system crash) or potentially escalate their privileges.
(CVE-2015-5707)

Marc-André Lureau discovered that the vhost driver did not properly
release the userspace provided log file descriptor. A privileged attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (resource exhaustion).
(CVE-2015-6252)

It was discovered that the Linux kernel's perf subsystem did not bound
callchain backtraces on PowerPC 64. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service. (CVE-2015-6526)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
linux-image-3.2.0-1471-omap4 3.2.0-1471.92

After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
all the necessary changes.

ATTENTION: Due to an unavoidable ABI change the kernel updates have
been given a new version number, which requires you to recompile and
reinstall all third party kernel modules you might have installed. If
you use linux-restricted-modules, you have to update that package as
well to get modules which work with the new kernel version. Unless you
manually uninstalled the standard kernel metapackages (e.g. linux-generic,
linux-server, linux-powerpc), a standard system upgrade will automatically
perform this as well.
