Linux kernel multiple security vulnerabilities
Published:31.01.2009

SecurityVulns ID:9633
Type:local
Threat Level:
5/10
Description:Multiple DoS conditions.
Affected:LINUX : kernel 2.6
CVE:CVE-2008-5702 (Buffer underflow in the ibwdt_ioctl function in drivers/watchdog/ib700wdt.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.28-rc1 might allow local users to have an unknown impact via a certain /dev/watchdog WDIOC_SETTIMEOUT IOCTL call.)
 CVE-2008-5700 (libata in the Linux kernel before 2.6.27.9 does not set minimum timeouts for SG_IO requests, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (Programmed I/O mode on drives) via multiple simultaneous invocations of an unspecified test program.)
 CVE-2008-5395 (The parisc_show_stack function in arch/parisc/kernel/traps.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.28-rc7 on PA-RISC allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via vectors associated with an attempt to unwind a stack that contains userspace addresses.)
 CVE-2008-5300 (Linux kernel 2.6.28 allows local users to cause a denial of service ("soft lockup" and process loss) via a large number of sendmsg function calls, which does not block during AF_UNIX garbage collection and triggers an OOM condition, a different vulnerability than CVE-2008-5029.)
 CVE-2008-5182 (The inotify functionality in Linux kernel 2.6 before 2.6.28-rc5 might allow local users to gain privileges via unknown vectors related to race conditions in inotify watch removal and umount.)
 CVE-2008-5079 (net/atm/svc.c in the ATM subsystem in the Linux kernel 2.6.27.8 and earlier allows local users to cause a denial of service (kernel infinite loop) by making two calls to svc_listen for the same socket, and then reading a /proc/net/atm/*vc file, related to corruption of the vcc table.)
