linux, linux-aws, linux-aws-hwe, linux-gcp, linux-gke-4.15, linux-hwe, linux-kvm, linux-oem, linux-oracle, linux-raspi2, linux-snapdragon vulnerabilities

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

  • Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
  • Ubuntu 16.04 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-gke-4.15 – Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
  • linux-kvm – Linux kernel for cloud environments
  • linux-oem – Linux kernel for OEM processors
  • linux-oracle – Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
  • linux-raspi2 – Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2
  • linux-snapdragon – Linux kernel for Snapdragon processors
  • linux-aws-hwe – Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS-HWE) systems
  • linux-gcp – Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
  • linux-hwe – Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel

Details

It was discovered that a buffer overflow existed in the 802.11 Wi-Fi
configuration interface for the Linux kernel when handling beacon settings.
A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash)
or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-16746)

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 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)

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 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)

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)

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.
