USN-2975-2: Linux kernel (Trusty HWE) vulnerability Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2975-2 16th May, 2016 linux-lts-trusty vulnerability A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Summary The system could be made to crash or run programs as an administrator. Software description linux-lts-trusty – Linux hardware enablement kernel from Trusty for Precise Details USN-2975-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel for Ubuntu 14.04LTS. This update provides the corresponding updates for the LinuxHardware Enablement (HWE) kernel from Ubuntu 14.04 LTS for Ubuntu12.04 LTS. 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 [ more… ]
