The following security issues were fixed : - The hci_uart_tty_open function in the HCI UART driver (drivers/bluetooth/hci_ldisc.c) in the Linux kernel did not verify whether the tty has a write operation, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) via vectors related to the Bluetooth driver. (CVE-2010-4242) - The load_mixer_volumes function in sound/oss/soundcard.c in the OSS sound subsystem in the Linux kernel incorrectly expected that a certain name field ends with a '\0' character, which allowed local users to conduct buffer overflow attacks and gain privileges, or possibly obtain sensitive information from kernel memory, via a SOUND_MIXER_SETLEVELS ioctl call. (CVE-2010-4527) - Integer underflow in the irda_getsockopt function in net/irda/af_irda.c in the Linux kernel on platforms other than x86 allowed local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel heap memory via an IRLMP_ENUMDEVICES getsockopt call.

(CVE-2010-4342) - fs/jfs/xattr.c in the Linux kernel did not properly handle a certain legacy format for storage of extended attributes, which might have allowed local users by bypass intended xattr namespace restrictions via an 'os2.' substring at the beginning of a name. (CVE-2010-2946) - Stack-based buffer overflow in the econet_sendmsg function in net/econet/af_econet.c in the Linux kernel, when an econet address is configured, allowed local users to gain privileges by providing a large number of iovec structures. (CVE-2010-3848) - The econet_sendmsg function in net/econet/af_econet.c in the Linux kernel, when an econet address is configured, allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a sendmsg call that specifies a NULL value for the remote address field. (CVE-2010-3849) - The ec_dev_ioctl function in net/econet/af_econet.c in the Linux kernel does not require the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability, which allowed local users to bypass intended access restrictions and configure econet addresses via an SIOCSIFADDR ioctl call. (CVE-2010-3850) - The do_exit function in kernel/exit.c in the Linux kernel did not properly handle a KERNEL_DS get_fs value, which allowed local users to bypass intended access_ok restrictions, overwrite arbitrary kernel memory locations, and gain privileges by leveraging a (1) BUG, (2) NULL pointer dereference, or (3) page fault, as demonstrated by vectors involving the clear_child_tid feature and the splice system call. (CVE-2010-4258) - Multiple integer overflows in the (1) pppol2tp_sendmsg function in net/l2tp/l2tp_ppp.c, and the (2) l2tp_ip_sendmsg function in net/l2tp/l2tp_ip.c, in the PPPoL2TP and IPoL2TP implementations in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption and panic) or possibly gain privileges via a crafted sendto call.

(CVE-2010-4083) - Integer overflow in the do_io_submit function in fs/aio.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted use of the io_submit system call. (CVE-2010-3067) - Multiple integer signedness errors in net/rose/af_rose.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a rose_getname function call, related to the rose_bind and rose_connect functions.
