CVE-2006-2448

Linux kernel before 2.6.16.21 and 2.6.17, when running on PowerPC, does not perform certain required access_ok checks, which allows local users to read arbitrary kernel memory on 64-bit systems (signal_64.c) and cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly read kernel memory on 32-bit systems (signal_32.c).

CVE-2006-2629

Race condition in Linux kernel 2.6.15 to 2.6.17, when running on SMP platforms, allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash) by creating and exiting a large number of tasks, then accessing the /proc entry of a task that is exiting, which causes memory corruption that leads to a failure in the prune_dcache function or a BUG_ON error in include/linux/list.h.

CVE-2006-2444

The snmp_trap_decode function in the SNMP NAT helper for Linux kernel before 2.6.16.18 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via unspecified remote attack vectors that cause failures in snmp_trap_decode that trigger (1) frees of random memory or (2) frees of previously-freed memory (double-free) by snmp_trap_decode as well as its calling function, as demonstrated via certain test cases of the PROTOS SNMP test suite.

    V2: 7.8 HIGH
CVE-2006-1857

    V2: 9.0 HIGH
CVE-2006-1858

SCTP in Linux kernel before 2.6.16.17 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a chunk length that is inconsistent with the actual length of provided parameters.

    V2: 7.8 HIGH
CVE-2006-1856

Certain modifications to the Linux kernel 2.6.16 and earlier do not add the appropriate Linux Security Modules (LSM) file_permission hooks to the (1) readv and (2) writev functions, which might allow attackers to bypass intended access restrictions.

Published: May 19, 2006; 07:02:00 PM -04:00
    V2: 7.5 HIGH
CVE-2006-0039

Race condition in the do_add_counters function in netfilter for Linux kernel 2.6.16 allows local users with CAP_NET_ADMIN capabilities to read kernel memory by triggering the race condition in a way that produces a size value that is inconsistent with allocated memory, which leads to a buffer over-read in IPT_ENTRY_ITERATE.

    V2: 4.7 MEDIUM
CVE-2006-1052

The selinux_ptrace logic in hooks.c in SELinux for Linux 2.6.6 allows local users with ptrace permissions to change the tracer SID to an SID of another process.

    V2: 2.1 LOW
CVE-2006-2071

Linux kernel 2.4.x and 2.6.x up to 2.6.16 allows local users to bypass IPC permissions and modify a readonly attachment of shared memory by using mprotect to give write permission to the attachment. NOTE: some original raw sources combined this issue with CVE-2006-1524, but they are different bugs.

    V2: 2.1 LOW
CVE-2006-1864

Directory traversal vulnerability in smbfs in Linux 2.6.16 and earlier allows local users to escape chroot restrictions for an SMB-mounted filesystem via "..\\" sequences, a similar vulnerability to CVE-2006-1863.

Published: April 26, 2006; 02:06:00 PM -04:00
    V2: 4.6 MEDIUM
CVE-2006-1863

Directory traversal vulnerability in CIFS in Linux 2.6.16 and earlier allows local users to escape chroot restrictions for an SMB-mounted filesystem via "..\\" sequences, a similar vulnerability to CVE-2006-1864.

    V2: 2.1 LOW
CVE-2006-1056

The Linux kernel before 2.6.16.9 and the FreeBSD kernel, when running on AMD64 and other 7th and 8th generation AuthenticAMD processors, only save/restore the FOP, FIP, and FDP x87 registers in FXSAVE/FXRSTOR when an exception is pending, which allows one process to determine portions of the state of floating point instructions of other processes, which can be leveraged to obtain sensitive information such as cryptographic keys. NOTE: this is the documented behavior of AMD64 processors, but it is inconsistent with Intel processors in a security-relevant fashion that was not addressed by the kernels.

    V2: 2.1 LOW
CVE-2006-1524

madvise_remove in Linux kernel 2.6.16 up to 2.6.16.6 does not follow file and mmap restrictions, which allows local users to bypass IPC permissions and replace portions of readonly tmpfs files with zeroes, aka the MADV_REMOVE vulnerability. NOTE: this description was originally written in a way that combined two separate issues. The mprotect issue now has a separate name, CVE-2006-2071.

    V2: 3.6 LOW
CVE-2006-1525

ip_route_input in Linux kernel 2.6 before 2.6.16.8 allows local users to cause a denial of service (panic) via a request for a route for a multicast IP address, which triggers a null dereference.

CVE-2006-0744

Linux kernel before 2.6.16.5 does not properly handle uncanonical return addresses on Intel EM64T CPUs, which reports an exception in the SYSRET instead of the next instruction, which causes the kernel exception handler to run on the user stack with the wrong GS.

    V2: 4.9 MEDIUM
CVE-2006-0558

perfmon (perfmon.c) in Linux kernel on IA64 architectures allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash) by interrupting a task while another process is accessing the mm_struct, which triggers a BUG_ON action in the put_page_testzero function.

CVE-2003-1327

Buffer overflow in the SockPrintf function in wu-ftpd 2.6.2 and earlier, when compiled with MAIL_ADMIN option enabled on a system that supports very long pathnames, might allow remote anonymous users to execute arbitrary code by uploading a file with a long pathname, which triggers the overflow when wu-ftpd constructs a notification message to the administrator.
