    linux-ti-omap4 vulnerabilities
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 13.04
    
    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.
    
    Software Description:
    - linux-ti-omap4: Linux kernel for OMAP4
    
    Details:
    
    An information leak was discovered in the handling of ICMPv6 Router
    Advertisement (RA) messages in the Linux kernel's IPv6 network stack. A
    remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service
    (excessive retries and address-generation outage), and consequently obtain
    sensitive information. (CVE-2013-0343)
    
    Kees Cook discovered flaw in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem of
    the Linux kernel. A physically proximate attacker could exploit this flaw
    to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (heap memory
    corruption) via a specially crafted device that provides an invalid Report
    ID. (CVE-2013-2888)
    
    Kees Cook discovered flaw in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem
    when CONFIG_HID_ZEROPLUS is enabled. A physically proximate attacker could
    leverage this flaw to cause a denial of service via a specially crafted
    device. (CVE-2013-2889)
    
    Kees Cook discovered a flaw in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem
    of the Linux kerenl when CONFIG_HID_PANTHERLORD is enabled. A physically
    proximate attacker could cause a denial of service (heap out-of-bounds
    write) via a specially crafted device. (CVE-2013-2892)
    
    Kees Cook discovered another flaw in the Human Interface Device (HID)
    subsystem of the Linux kernel when any of CONFIG_LOGITECH_FF,
    CONFIG_LOGIG940_FF, or CONFIG_LOGIWHEELS_FF are enabled. A physcially
    proximate attacker can leverage this flaw to cause a denial of service vias
    a specially crafted device. (CVE-2013-2893)
    
    Kees Cook discovered another flaw in the Human Interface Device (HID)
    subsystem of the Linux kernel when CONFIG_HID_LOGITECH_DJ is enabled. A
    physically proximate attacker could cause a denial of service (OOPS) or
    obtain sensitive information from kernel memory via a specially crafted
    device. (CVE-2013-2895)
    
    Kees Cook discovered a vulnerability in the Linux Kernel's Human Interface
    Device (HID) subsystem's support for N-Trig touch screens. A physically
    proximate attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service
    (OOPS) via a specially crafted device. (CVE-2013-2896)
    
    Kees Cook discovered yet another flaw in the Human Interface Device (HID)
    subsystem of the Linux kernel when CONFIG_HID_MULTITOUCH is enabled. A
    physically proximate attacker could leverage this flaw to cause a denial of
    service (OOPS) via a specially crafted device. (CVE-2013-2897)
    
    Kees Cook discovered a flaw in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem
    of the Linux kernel whe CONFIG_HID_PICOLCD is enabled. A physically
    proximate attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service
    (OOPS) via a specially crafted device. (CVE-2013-2899)
    
    Alan Chester reported a flaw in the IPv6 Stream Control Transmission
    Protocol (SCTP) of the Linux kernel. A remote attacker could exploit this
    flaw to obtain sensitive information by sniffing network traffic.
    (CVE-2013-4350)
    
    Dmitry Vyukov reported a flaw in the Linux kernel's handling of IPv6 UDP
    Fragmentation Offload (UFO) processing. A remote attacker could leverage
    this flaw to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2013-4387)
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 13.04:
      linux-image-3.5.0-235-omap4     3.5.0-235.51
    
    After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
    all the necessary changes.
    
    ATTENTION: Due to an unavoidable ABI change the kernel updates have
    been given a new version number, which requires you to recompile and
    reinstall all third party kernel modules you might have installed. If
    you use linux-restricted-modules, you have to update that package as
    well to get modules which work with the new kernel version. Unless you
    manually uninstalled the standard kernel metapackages (e.g. linux-generic,
    linux-server, linux-powerpc), a standard system upgrade will automatically
    perform this as well.
