- Ubuntu 10.10
Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.
- linux-ti-omap4 - Linux kernel for OMAP4
Peter Huewe discovered an information leak in the handling of reading
security-related TPM data. A local, unprivileged user could read the
results of a previous TPM command. (CVE-2011-1162)
Clement Lecigne discovered a bug in the HFS filesystem. A local attacker
could exploit this to cause a kernel oops. (CVE-2011-2203)
Han-Wen Nienhuys reported a flaw in the FUSE kernel module. A local user
who can mount a FUSE file system could cause a denial of service.
A flaw was found in the b43 driver in the Linux kernel. An attacker could
use this flaw to cause a denial of service if the system has an active
wireless interface using the b43 driver. (CVE-2011-3359)
A flaw was found in how the Linux kernel handles user-defined key types. An
unprivileged local user could exploit this to crash the system.
