 Package : kernel
 Date    : September 26, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in the Linux
 kernel:

 Multiple array index errors in drivers/hid/hid-core.c in the Human
 Interface Device (HID) subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11
 allow physically proximate attackers to execute arbitrary code or
 cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via a crafted
 device that provides an invalid Report ID (CVE-2013-2888).

 drivers/hid/hid-zpff.c in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem
 in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_HID_ZEROPLUS is enabled,
 allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service
 (heap-based out-of-bounds write) via a crafted device (CVE-2013-2889).

 drivers/hid/hid-pl.c in the Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem in
 the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_HID_PANTHERLORD is enabled,
 allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service
 (heap-based out-of-bounds write) via a crafted device (CVE-2013-2892).

 The Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem in the Linux kernel
 through 3.11, when CONFIG_LOGITECH_FF, CONFIG_LOGIG940_FF, or
 CONFIG_LOGIWHEELS_FF is enabled, allows physically proximate
 attackers to cause a denial of service (heap-based out-of-bounds
 write) via a crafted device, related to (1) drivers/hid/hid-lgff.c,
 (2) drivers/hid/hid-lg3ff.c, and (3) drivers/hid/hid-lg4ff.c
 (CVE-2013-2893).

 drivers/hid/hid-logitech-dj.c in the Human Interface Device (HID)
 subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_HID_LOGITECH_DJ
 is enabled, allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial
 of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) or obtain sensitive
 information from kernel memory via a crafted device (CVE-2013-2895).

 drivers/hid/hid-ntrig.c in the Human Interface Device (HID)
 subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_HID_NTRIG
 is enabled, allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial
 of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted device
 (CVE-2013-2896).

 Multiple array index errors in drivers/hid/hid-multitouch.c in the
 Human Interface Device (HID) subsystem in the Linux kernel through
 3.11, when CONFIG_HID_MULTITOUCH is enabled, allow physically proximate
 attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption, or NULL
 pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted device (CVE-2013-2897).

 drivers/hid/hid-picolcd_core.c in the Human Interface Device (HID)
 subsystem in the Linux kernel through 3.11, when CONFIG_HID_PICOLCD
 is enabled, allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial
 of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted device
 (CVE-2013-2899).

 The udp_v6_push_pending_frames function in net/ipv6/udp.c in the IPv6
 implementation in the Linux kernel through 3.10.3 makes an incorrect
 function call for pending data, which allows local users to cause a
 denial of service (BUG and system crash) via a crafted application that
 uses the UDP_CORK option in a setsockopt system call (CVE-2013-4162).

 The ip6_append_data_mtu function in net/ipv6/ip6_output.c in the IPv6
 implementation in the Linux kernel through 3.10.3 does not properly
 maintain information about whether the IPV6_MTU setsockopt option
 had been specified, which allows local users to cause a denial of
 service (BUG and system crash) via a crafted application that uses
 the UDP_CORK option in a setsockopt system call (CVE-2013-4163).

 The validate_event function in arch/arm/kernel/perf_event.c in the
 Linux kernel before 3.10.8 on the ARM platform allows local users to
 gain privileges or cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference
 and system crash) by adding a hardware event to an event group led
 by a software event (CVE-2013-4254

 The updated packages provides a solution for these security issues.
