Linux Kernel is prone to an overflow condition. The 'pppol2tp_sendmsg' function in 'net/l2tp/l2tp_ppp.c' fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input resulting in an integer overflow. With a specially crafted sendto call, a local attacker can potentially gain elevated privileges.
70290 Linux Kernel net/tipc/socket.c get_name Function Local Stack Memory Disclosure

Linux Kernel contains a flaw that may lead to an unauthorized information disclosure.  The issue is triggered when the 'get_name' function in 'net/tipc/socket.c' fails to initialize a certain structure, which will disclose potentially sensitive kernel stack memory information to a local attacker.
70288 Linux Kernel on ThinkPad drivers/platform/x86/thinkpad_acpi.c Video Output Co...

Linux Kernel on ThinkPad contains a flaw that may allow a local denial of service. The issue is triggered when 'drivers/platform/x86/thinkpad_acpi.c' fails to properly restrict access to the video output control state, allowing a local attacker to use a read or write operation to cause a denial of service.
70226 Linux Kernel TIPC Implementation Crafted sendmsg Call Integer Signedness Loca...

Linux Kernel is prone to an integer signedness error that will allow an overflow condition. The TIPC implementation in the 'tipc_msg_build()' function in 'net/tipc/msg.c' fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input resulting in a heap-based buffer overflow. With a specially crafted sendmsg call, a local attacker can potentially gain elevated privileges.
69788 Linux Kernel net/ipv4/inet_diag.c Netlink Message Crafted INET_DIAG_REQ_BYTEC...

Linux Kernel contains a flaw that may allow a local denial of service. The issue is triggered when 'net/ipv4/inet_diag.c' fails to properly audit 'INET_DIAG' bytecode, allowing a local attacker to use a crafted 'INET_DIAG_REQ_BYTECODE' instruction in a netlink message containing multiple attribute elements to cause a denial of service via a kernel infinite loop.

Linux Kernel contains a flaw that may allow a local denial of service. The issue is triggered when a race condition in the '__exit_signal' function in 'kernel/exit.c' is exploited to cause a denial of service via vectors related to multithreaded exec, the use of a thread group leader in 'kernel/posix-cpu-timers.c', and the selection of a new thread group leader in the 'de_thread' function 'in fs/exec.c'.
69577 Linux Kernel ipc/sem.c copy_semid_to_user Function semctl Call Local Memory D...

Linux Kernel contains a flaw that may lead to an unauthorized information disclosure.  The issue is triggered when the 'copy_semid_to_user' function in 'ipc/sem.c' fails to initialize a certain structure, which will disclose potentially sensitive kernel stack memory via a 'IPC_INFO', 'SEM_INFO', 'IPC_STAT' or 'SEM_STAT' semctl system call to a local attacker.

Linux Kernel contains a flaw that may allow a local denial of service. The issue is triggered when the 'setup_arg_pages' function in 'fs/exec.c' doesn't properly restrict the stack memory consumption of the 'arguments' or 'environment' when 'CONFIG_STACK_GROWSDOWN' is used, allowing a local attacker to cause a denial of service via a crafted exec system call.
69529 Linux Kernel USB Subsystem drivers/usb/serial/mos7840.c mos7840_ioctl Functio...

Linux Kernel contains a flaw that may lead to an unauthorized information disclosure.  The issue is triggered when the USB Subsystem fails to properly initialize certain structure members, allowing a local attacker to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a TIOCGICOUNT IOTCL call, and the 'mos7720_ioctl' function in 'drivers/usb/serial/mos7720.c' and 'mos7840_ioctl' function in 'drivers/usb/serial/mos7840.c'.

Linux Kernel contains a flaw that may lead to an unauthorized information disclosure.  The issue is triggered when the USB Subsystem fails to properly initialize a certain structure member, allowing a local attacker to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a TIOCGICOUNT IOTCL call and the 'mos7720_ioctl' function in 'drivers/usb/serial/mos7720.c' and the 'mos7840_ioctl' function in 'drivers/usb/serial/mos7840.c'.

Linux Kernel contains a flaw that may lead to an unauthorized information disclosure.  The issue is triggered when the 'ivtvfb_ioctl' function in 'drivers/media/video/ivtv/ivtvfb.c' fails to properly initialize a certain structure member, which will disclose potentially sensitive kernal stack memory information via an FBIOGET_VBLANK IOTCL call to a local attacker.
69525 Linux Kernel drivers/video/sis/sis_main.c sisfb_ioctl Function FBIOGET_VBLANK...

Linux Kernel contains a flaw that may lead to an unauthorized information disclosure.  The issue is triggered when the 'sisfb_ioctl' function in 'drivers/video/sis/sis_main.c' fails to properly initialize a certain structure member, allowing a local attacker to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a FBIOGET_VBLANK IOTCL call.
69521 Linux Kernel ipc/shm.c copy_shmid_to_user Function shmctl System Call Local M...

Linux Kernel contains a flaw that may lead to an unauthorized information disclosure.  The issue is triggered when the 'copy_shmid_to_user' function in 'ipc/shm.c' fails to properly initialize an unspecified structure, which can be exploited via the shmctl system call to disclose kernel stack memory to a local attacker.
69469 Xen Backend Drivers Kernel Thread Reference Leak DoS

Xen contains a flaw that may allow a local denial of service. The issue is triggered due to the backend drivers leaking references to kernel threads, which when exploited by a malicious guest can prevent a proper virtual shutdown, prevent 'xm' commands from functioning properly, and may result in loss of availability for the service.
69162 Linux Kernel net/packet/af_packet.c Multiple Function Stack Memory Disclosure

Linux Kernel contains a flaw that may lead to an unauthorized information disclosure. The issue is triggered when the 'packet_getname_spkt()' and 'packet_getname()' functions in 'net/packet/af_packet.c' fail to properly initialize a member of a certain structure before copying it to userspace, which will disclose kernel stack memory to a local attacker.
69161 Linux Kernel net/ax25/af_ax25.c ax25_getname() Function Stack Memory Disclosure

Linux Kernel contains a flaw that may lead to an unauthorized information disclosure. The issue is triggered when the 'ax25_getname()' function in 'net/ax25/af_ax25.c' fails to properly initialize a member of a certain structure before copying it to userspace, which will disclose kernel stack memory to a local attacker.
69017 Linux Kernel net/x25/x25_facilities.c x25_parse_facilities() Function Memory ...

A memory corruption flaw exists in Linux Kernel. The 'x25_parse_facilities()' function in 'net/x25/x25_facilities.c' suffers from a boundary error, resulting in kernel heap memory corruption. With specially crafted X.25 traffic, a local attacker can cause a loss of availability.
69013 Linux Kernel on 64-bit drivers/scsi/gdth.c ioc_general() Function Local Overf...

Linux Kernel on 64-bit is prone to an overflow condition. The 'ioc_general' function in 'drivers/scsi/gdth.c' fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input resulting in an integer overflow. With a specially crafted overly large argument in an ioctl call, a local attacker can potentially cause a denial of service.
