USN-6460-1: Linux kernel vulnerabilities

Ubuntu security notices It was discovered that the IPv6 implementation in the Linux kernel
contained a high rate of hash collisions in connection lookup table. A
remote attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (excessive CPU
consumption). (CVE-2023-1206)

It was discovered that the Broadcom FullMAC USB WiFi driver in the Linux
kernel did not properly perform data buffer size validation in some
situations. A physically proximate attacker could use this to craft a
malicious USB device that when inserted, could cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly expose sensitive information. (CVE-2023-1380)

Gwangun Jung discovered that the Quick Fair Queueing scheduler
implementation in the Linux kernel contained an out-of-bounds write
vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-31436)

Tanguy Dubroca discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
did not properly handle certain pointer data type, leading to an out-of-
bounds write vulnerability. A privileged attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2023-35001)

Kyle Zeng discovered that the networking stack implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly validate skb object size in certain conditions. An
attacker could use this cause a denial of service (system crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-42752)

Kyle Zeng discovered that the IPv4 Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP)
classifier implementation in the Linux kernel contained an out-of-bounds
read vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service (system crash). Please note that kernel packet classifier support
for RSVP has been removed to resolve this vulnerability. (CVE-2023-42755)

Budimir Markovic discovered that the qdisc implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly validate inner classes, leading to a use-after-free
vulnerability. A local user could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-4623) Read More
