CVE-2006-3468

Linux kernel 2.6.x, when using both NFS and EXT3, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (file system panic) via a crafted UDP packet with a V2 lookup procedure that specifies a bad file handle (inode number), which triggers an error and causes an exported directory to be remounted read-only.

CVE-2006-3626

Race condition in Linux kernel 2.6.17.4 and earlier allows local users to gain root privileges by using prctl with PR_SET_DUMPABLE in a way that causes /proc/self/environ to become setuid root.

CVE-2006-2936

The ftdi_sio driver (usb/serial/ftdi_sio.c) in Linux kernel 2.6.x up to 2.6.17, and possibly later versions, allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by writing more data to the serial port than the hardware can handle, which causes the data to be queued.

CVE-2006-2451

The suid_dumpable support in Linux kernel 2.6.13 up to versions before 2.6.17.4, and 2.6.16 before 2.6.16.24, allows a local user to cause a denial of service (disk consumption) and possibly gain privileges via the PR_SET_DUMPABLE argument of the prctl function and a program that causes a core dump file to be created in a directory for which the user does not have permissions.

CVE-2006-2935

The dvd_read_bca function in the DVD handling code in drivers/cdrom/cdrom.c in Linux kernel 2.2.16, and later versions, assigns the wrong value to a length variable, which allows local users to execute arbitrary code via a crafted USB Storage device that triggers a buffer overflow.

CVE-2006-2934

SCTP conntrack (ip_conntrack_proto_sctp.c) in netfilter for Linux kernel 2.6.17 before 2.6.17.3 and 2.6.16 before 2.6.16.23 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a packet without any chunks, which causes a variable to contain an invalid value that is later used to dereference a pointer.

V2.0: 5.0 MEDIUM
CVE-2006-2445

Race condition in run_posix_cpu_timers in Linux kernel before 2.6.16.21 allows local users to cause a denial of service (BUG_ON crash) by causing one CPU to attach a timer to a process that is exiting.

V2.0: 4.0 MEDIUM
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-2006-2916

artswrapper in aRts, when running setuid root on Linux 2.6.0 or later versions, does not check the return value of the setuid function call, which allows local users to gain root privileges by causing setuid to fail, which prevents artsd from dropping privileges.

V2.0: 6.0 MEDIUM
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.
