    Almost 40 vulnerabilities have been found in the Linux Ubuntu 10.04 Long Term Support (LTS) kernel.

    "The holes also apply to corresponding versions of Kubuntu, Edubuntu and Xubuntu," writes ZDNet's Darren Pauli.


    "The vulnerabilities include an issue with the way the Common Internet File System validates Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) response packets, which allows an attacker to send denial-of-service crafted packets, and a hole in the Network File System v4 (NFSv4), which bungles certain write requests allowing malicious users to craft traffic to gain root privileges," Pauli writes.
