USN-2978-3: Linux kernel (Raspberry Pi 2) vulnerability Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2978-3 16th May, 2016 linux-raspi2 vulnerability A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives: Ubuntu 15.10 Summary The system could be made to crash or run programs as an administrator. Software description linux-raspi2 – Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2 Details Philip Pettersson discovered that the Linux kernel's ASN.1 DER decoder didnot properly process certificate files with tags of indefinite length. Alocal unprivileged attacker could use this to cause a denial of service(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code with administrativeprivileges. Update instructions The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package version: Ubuntu 15.10: linux-image-4.2.0-1029-raspi2 4.2.0-1029.38 To update your system, please follow these instructions: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Security/Upgrades. After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to makeall the necessary changes. ATTENTION: [ more… ]
