  Date Alert Description
7.8 2016-12-16 CVE-2016-9950

An issue was discovered in Apport before 2.20.4. There is a path traversal issue in the Apport crash file "Package" and "SourcePackage" fields. These fields are used to build a path to the package specific hook files in the /usr/share/apport/package-hooks/ directory. An attacker can exploit this path traversal to execute arbitrary Python files from the local system.

7.8 2016-12-16 CVE-2016-9949

An issue was discovered in Apport before 2.20.4. In apport/ui.py, Apport reads the CrashDB field and it then evaluates the field as Python code if it begins with a "{". This allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary Python code.

7.8 2016-11-27 CVE-2015-1328

The overlayfs implementation in the linux (aka Linux kernel) package before 3.19.0-21.21 in Ubuntu through 15.04 does not properly check permissions for file creation in the upper filesystem directory, which allows local users to obtain root access by leveraging a configuration in which overlayfs is permitted in an arbitrary mount namespace.

4.3 2012-06-04 CVE-2012-0944

Aptdaemon 0.43 and earlier in Ubuntu 11.04, 11.10, and 12.04 LTS does not authenticate packages when the transaction is not simulated, which allows remote attackers to install arbitrary packages via a man-in-the-middle attack.
