1 CVE-2006-5755 DoS 2006-12-31 2017-10-11
4.9
None Local Low Not required None None Complete
Linux kernel before 2.6.18, when running on x86_64 systems, does not properly save or restore EFLAGS during a context switch, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash) by causing SYSENTER to set an NT flag, which can trigger a crash on the IRET of the next task.
2 CVE-2006-5173 DoS 2006-10-17 2020-08-19
2.1
None Local Low Not required None None Partial
Linux kernel does not properly save or restore EFLAGS during a context switch, or reset the flags when creating new threads, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (process crash), as demonstrated using a process that sets the Alignment Check flag (EFLAGS 0x40000), which triggers a SIGBUS in other processes that have an unaligned access.
3 CVE-2006-5158 DoS 2006-10-05 2017-10-11
3.3
None Local Network Low Not required None None Partial
The nlmclnt_mark_reclaim in clntlock.c in NFS lockd in Linux kernel before 2.6.16 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (process crash) and deny access to NFS exports via unspecified vectors that trigger a kernel oops (null dereference) and a deadlock.
4 CVE-2006-4814 399 2006-12-20 2017-10-11
4.6
None Local Low ??? None None Complete
The mincore function in the Linux kernel before 2.4.33.6 does not properly lock access to user space, which has unspecified impact and attack vectors, possibly related to a deadlock.
5 CVE-2006-4572 264 Bypass 2006-11-07 2012-03-19
7.5
None Remote Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
ip6_tables in netfilter in the Linux kernel before 2.6.16.31 allows remote attackers to (1) bypass a rule that disallows a protocol, via a packet with the protocol header not located immediately after the fragment header, aka "ip6_tables protocol bypass bug;" and (2) bypass a rule that looks for a certain extension header, via a packet with an extension header outside the first fragment, aka "ip6_tables extension header bypass bug."
6 CVE-2006-4145 399 DoS 2006-08-21 2018-10-17
4.9
None Local Low Not required None None Complete
The Universal Disk Format (UDF) filesystem driver in Linux kernel 2.6.17 and earlier allows local users to cause a denial of service (hang and crash) via certain operations involving truncated files, as demonstrated via the dd command.
7 CVE-2006-4093 DoS 2006-08-21 2018-10-17
4.9
None Local Low Not required None None Complete
Linux kernel 2.x.6 before 2.6.17.9 and 2.4.x before 2.4.33.1 on PowerPC PPC970 systems allows local users to cause a denial of service (crash) related to the "HID0 attention enable on PPC970 at boot time."
8 CVE-2006-3745 DoS +Priv 2006-08-23 2018-10-17
7.2
None Local Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
Unspecified vulnerability in the sctp_make_abort_user function in the SCTP implementation in Linux 2.6.x before 2.6.17.10 and 2.4.23 up to 2.4.33 allows local users to cause a denial of service (panic) and possibly gain root privileges via unknown attack vectors.
9 CVE-2006-2935 120 Exec Code Overflow 2006-07-05 2020-08-28
4.6
None Local Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
The dvd_read_bca function in the DVD handling code in drivers/cdrom/cdrom.c in Linux kernel 2.2.16, and later versions, assigns the wrong value to a length variable, which allows local users to execute arbitrary code via a crafted USB Storage device that triggers a buffer overflow.
10 CVE-2006-1863 Dir. Trav. 2006-04-25 2017-10-11
2.1
None Local Low Not required Partial None None
Directory traversal vulnerability in CIFS in Linux 2.6.16 and earlier allows local users to escape chroot restrictions for an SMB-mounted filesystem via "..\\" sequences, a similar vulnerability to CVE-2006-1864.
11 CVE-2006-1368 119 DoS Overflow Mem. Corr. 2006-03-23 2018-10-03
10.0
None Remote Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
Buffer overflow in the USB Gadget RNDIS implementation in the Linux kernel before 2.6.16 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (kmalloc'd memory corruption) via a remote NDIS response to OID_GEN_SUPPORTED_LIST, which causes memory to be allocated for the reply data but not the reply structure.
12 CVE-2006-1056 310 +Info 2006-04-20 2018-10-30
2.1
None Local Low Not required Partial None None
The Linux kernel before 2.6.16.9 and the FreeBSD kernel, when running on AMD64 and other 7th and 8th generation AuthenticAMD processors, only save/restore the FOP, FIP, and FDP x87 registers in FXSAVE/FXRSTOR when an exception is pending, which allows one process to determine portions of the state of floating point instructions of other processes, which can be leveraged to obtain sensitive information such as cryptographic keys. NOTE: this is the documented behavior of AMD64 processors, but it is inconsistent with Intel processors in a security-relevant fashion that was not addressed by the kernels.
13 CVE-2006-0557 2006-03-12 2018-10-03
4.9
None Local Low Not required None None Complete
sys_mbind in mempolicy.c in Linux kernel 2.6.16 and earlier does not sanity check the maxnod variable before making certain computations for the get_nodes function, which has unknown impact and attack vectors.
