USN-6726-1: Linux kernel vulnerabilities

Ubuntu Security Advisory

Pratyush Yadav discovered that the Xen network backend implementation in
the Linux kernel did not properly handle zero length data request, leading
to a null pointer dereference vulnerability. An attacker in a guest VM
could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (host domain crash).
(CVE-2023-46838)

It was discovered that the IPv6 implementation of the Linux kernel did not
properly manage route cache memory usage. A remote attacker could use this
to cause a denial of service (memory exhaustion). (CVE-2023-52340)

It was discovered that the device mapper driver in the Linux kernel did not
properly validate target size during certain memory allocations. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2023-52429, CVE-2024-23851)

Dan Carpenter discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
did not store data in properly sized memory locations. A local user could
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2024-0607)

Several security issues were discovered in the Linux kernel.
An attacker could possibly use these to compromise the system.
