USN-5644-1: Linux kernel (GCP) vulnerabilities

2022-09-28 KENNETH 0

USN-5644-1: Linux kernel (GCP) vulnerabilities It was discovered that the framebuffer driver on the Linux kernel did not verify size limits when changing font or screen size, leading to an out-of- bounds write. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-33655) Duoming Zhou discovered that race conditions existed in the timer handling implementation of the Linux kernel’s Rose X.25 protocol layer, resulting in use-after-free vulnerabilities. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2022-2318) Roger Pau Monné discovered that the Xen virtual block driver in the Linux kernel did not properly initialize memory pages to be used for shared communication with the backend. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (guest kernel memory). (CVE-2022-26365) Roger Pau Monné discovered that [ more… ]

2022-09-27 KENNETH 0

USN-5643-1: Ghostscript vulnerabilities It was discovered that GhostScript incorrectly handled certain PDF files. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted PDF file, a remote attacker could use this issue to cause GhostScript to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. This issue only affected Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. (CVE-2020-27792) It was discovered that GhostScript incorrectly handled certain PDF files. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted PDF file, a remote attacker could use this issue to cause GhostScript to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. This issue only affected Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. (CVE-2022-2085) Source: USN-5643-1: Ghostscript vulnerabilities
