Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in the Linux kernel, which can be exploited to disclose information, cause a DoS (Denial of Service), gain escalated privileges, or potentially compromise a vulnerable system.
1) Some unspecified errors have been reported in the ISO9660 filesystem handler including Rock Ridge and Juliet extensions. These can be exploited via a specially crafted filesystem to cause a DoS or potentially corrupt memory leading to execution of arbitrary code.
2) A signedness error in the "bluez_sock_create()" function when creating bluetooth sockets can potentially be exploited to gain root privileges on a vulnerable system.
3) An information leak exists in the "ext2_make_empty()" function in the implementation of the ext2 filesystem when creating new directories. This can be exploited to disclose kernel memory.
4) An error in load_elf_library can be exploited to cause a DoS.
5) An error in the "fib_seq_start()" function can be exploited by malicious, local users to crash the system via /proc/net/route.
