USN-4208-1: Linux kernel vulnerabilities

linux, linux-aws, linux-gcp, linux-gcp-5.3, linux-kvm, linux-oracle vulnerabilities

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

  • Ubuntu 19.10
  • Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Summary

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description

  • linux – Linux kernel
  • linux-aws – Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
  • linux-gcp – Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
  • linux-kvm – Linux kernel for cloud environments
  • linux-oracle – Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
  • linux-gcp-5.3 – Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems

Details

Jann Horn discovered that the OverlayFS and ShiftFS Drivers in the Linux
kernel did not properly handle reference counting during memory mapping
operations when used in conjunction with AUFS. A local attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-15794)

Nicolas Waisman discovered that the WiFi driver stack in the Linux kernel
did not properly validate SSID lengths. A physically proximate attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2019-17133)

It was discovered that the ARM Komeda display driver for the Linux kernel
did not properly deallocate memory in certain error conditions. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (memory exhaustion).
(CVE-2019-18810)

It was discovered that the VirtualBox guest driver implementation in the
Linux kernel did not properly deallocate memory in certain error
conditions. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(memory exhaustion). (CVE-2019-19048)

It was discovered that the ADIS16400 IIO IMU Driver for the Linux kernel
did not properly deallocate memory in certain error conditions. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (memory exhaustion).
(CVE-2019-19060, CVE-2019-19061)

It was discovered that the Intel OPA Gen1 Infiniband Driver for the Linux
kernel did not properly deallocate memory in certain error conditions. A
local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (memory
exhaustion). (CVE-2019-19065)

It was discovered that the AMD Audio CoProcessor Driver for the Linux
kernel did not properly deallocate memory in certain error conditions. A
local attacker with the ability to load modules could use this to cause a
denial of service (memory exhaustion). (CVE-2019-19067)

It was discovered in the Qualcomm FastRPC Driver for the Linux kernel did
not properly deallocate memory in certain error conditions. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (memory exhaustion).
(CVE-2019-19069)

It was discovered that the Cascoda CA8210 SPI 802.15.4 wireless controller
driver for the Linux kernel did not properly deallocate memory in certain
error conditions. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service (memory exhaustion). (CVE-2019-19075)

It was discovered that the AMD Display Engine Driver in the Linux kernel
did not properly deallocate memory in certain error conditions. A local
attack could use this to cause a denial of service (memory exhaustion).
(CVE-2019-19083)

Nicolas Waisman discovered that the Chelsio T4/T5 RDMA Driver for the Linux
kernel performed DMA from a kernel stack. A local attacker could use this
to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2019-17075)

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 19.10
linux-image-5.3.0-1007-oracle5.3.0-1007.8

linux-image-5.3.0-1009-gcp5.3.0-1009.10~18.04.1
linux-image-gcp-edge5.3.0.1009.9

To update your system, please follow these instructions: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Security/Upgrades.

After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
all the necessary changes.

ATTENTION: Due to an unavoidable ABI change the kernel updates have
been given a new version number, which requires you to recompile and
reinstall all third party kernel modules you might have installed.
Unless you manually uninstalled the standard kernel metapackages
(e.g. linux-generic, linux-generic-lts-RELEASE, linux-virtual,
linux-powerpc), a standard system upgrade will automatically perform
this as well.
