Ubuntu Security Notice 6439-1 – It was discovered that the IPv6 implementation in the Linux kernel contained a high rate of hash collisions in connection lookup table. A remote attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. Yu Hao and Weiteng Chen discovered that the Bluetooth HCI UART driver in the Linux kernel contained a race condition, leading to a null pointer dereference vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service.Ubuntu Security Notice 6439-1 – It was discovered that the IPv6 implementation in the Linux kernel contained a high rate of hash collisions in connection lookup table.
