Summary
linux, linux-aws, linux-kvm, linux-raspi2, linux-snapdragon vulnerabilities
Details

It was discovered that the generic SCSI driver in the Linux kernel did not properly enforce permissions on kernel memory access. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information or possibly elevate privileges. (CVE-2017-13168)

Wen Xu discovered that a use-after-free vulnerability existed in the ext4 filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel. An attacker could use this to construct a malicious ext4 image that, when mounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-10876, CVE-2018-10879)

Wen Xu discovered that a buffer overflow existed in the ext4 filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel. An attacker could use this to construct a malicious ext4 image that, when mounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-10877)

Wen Xu discovered that an out-of-bounds write vulnerability existed in the ext4 filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel. An attacker could use this to construct a malicious ext4 image that, when mounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-10878, CVE-2018-10882)

Wen Xu discovered that the ext4 filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly keep meta-data information consistent in some situations. An attacker could use this to construct a malicious ext4 image that, when mounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2018-10881)

Shankara Pailoor discovered that the JFS filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel contained a buffer overflow when handling extended attributes. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-12233)

Wen Xu discovered that the XFS filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly handle an error condition with a corrupted xfs image. An attacker could use this to construct a malicious xfs image that, when mounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2018-13094)

It was discovered that the Linux kernel did not properly handle setgid file creation when performed by a non-member of the group. A local attacker could use this to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2018-13405)

Silvio Cesare discovered that the generic VESA frame buffer driver in the Linux kernel contained an integer overflow. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-13406)
