2018-04-04 KENNETH 0

USN-3617-2: Linux (HWE) vulnerabilities linux-hwe, linux-gcp, linux-oem vulnerabilities A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Summary Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel. Software Description linux-gcp – Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems linux-hwe – Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel linux-oem – Linux kernel for OEM processors Details USN-3617-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel for Ubuntu 17.10. This update provides the corresponding updates for the Linux Hardware Enablement (HWE) kernel from Ubuntu 17.10 for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. It was discovered that a race condition leading to a use-after-free vulnerability existed in the ALSA PCM subsystem of the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-0861) It was discovered that the KVM implementation in the [ more… ]

USN-3617-1: Linux kernel vulnerabilities linux vulnerabilities A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives: Ubuntu 17.10 Summary Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel. Software Description linux – Linux kernel Details It was discovered that a race condition leading to a use-after-free vulnerability existed in the ALSA PCM subsystem of the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-0861) It was discovered that the KVM implementation in the Linux kernel allowed passthrough of the diagnostic I/O port 0x80. An attacker in a guest VM could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) in the host OS. (CVE-2017-1000407) It was discovered that a use-after-free vulnerability existed in the network namespaces implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could [ more… ]
