Linux on ARMCanonical announced that a couple of vulnerabilities had been found in the Linux kernel packages, this time affecting the OMAP4 kernel of the Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) operating system.

The CVE-2013-1763 Linux kernel vulnerabilities affected Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) OMAP4.

According to Canonical, the system could be made to crash or run programs as an administrator.

An unprivileged user could have sent a netlink message, resulting in an out-of-bounds access of the sock_diag_handlers[] array which, in turn, would have allowed the userland to take over control, while in kernel mode.
