    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    - Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
    Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.
    Software Description:
    - linux: Linux kernel
    A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel's handling of SCTP handshake. A
    remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service
    (system crash). (CVE-2014-0101)
    An error was discovered in the Linux kernel's DCCP protocol support. A
    remote attacked could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service
    (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-2523)
    Update instructions:
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:

      linux-image-2.6.32-58-ia64      2.6.32-58.120
      linux-image-2.6.32-58-lpia      2.6.32-58.120
      linux-image-2.6.32-58-powerpc   2.6.32-58.120
      linux-image-2.6.32-58-powerpc-smp  2.6.32-58.120

      linux-image-2.6.32-58-sparc64   2.6.32-58.120
      linux-image-2.6.32-58-sparc64-smp  2.6.32-58.120
      linux-image-2.6.32-58-versatile  2.6.32-58.120
      linux-image-2.6.32-58-virtual   2.6.32-58.120
    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.
