Summary
linux vulnerabilities
Details

It was discovered that the netlink 802.11 configuration interface in the Linux kernel did not properly validate some attributes passed from userspace. A local attacker with the CAPNETADMIN privilege could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-11089)

It was discovered that a buffer overflow existed in the ioctl handling code in the ISDN subsystem of the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-12762)

It was discovered that the netfilter component of the Linux did not properly restrict access to the connection tracking helpers list. A local attacker could use this to bypass intended access restrictions. (CVE-2017-17448)

Dmitry Vyukov discovered that the KVM implementation in the Linux kernel contained an out-of-bounds read when handling memory-mapped I/O. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2017-17741)

It was discovered that the Salsa20 encryption algorithm implementations in the Linux kernel did not properly handle zero-length inputs. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2017-17805)

It was discovered that the keyring implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly check permissions when a key request was performed on a task's default keyring. A local attacker could use this to add keys to unauthorized keyrings. (CVE-2017-17807)

It was discovered that the Broadcom NetXtremeII ethernet driver in the Linux kernel did not properly validate Generic Segment Offload (GSO) packet sizes. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (interface unavailability). (CVE-2018-1000026)

It was discovered that the Reliable Datagram Socket (RDS) implementation in the Linux kernel contained an out-of-bounds write during RDMA page allocation. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-5332)
