Ubuntu Security Notice 3291-3 - USN-3291-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. This update provides the corresponding updates for the Linux Hardware Enablement kernel from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Dmitry Vyukov discovered that the generic SCSI subsystem in the Linux kernel contained a stack-based buffer overflow. A local attacker with access to an sg device could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.

linux-lts-xenial vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-lts-xenial: Linux hardware enablement kernel from Xenial for Trusty

Details:

USN-3291-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel for Ubuntu 16.04
LTS. This update provides the corresponding updates for the Linux
Hardware Enablement (HWE) kernel from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS for Ubuntu
14.04 LTS.

Dmitry Vyukov discovered that the generic SCSI (sg) subsystem in the Linux
kernel contained a stack-based buffer overflow. A local attacker with
access to an sg device could use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-7187)

It was discovered that a NULL pointer dereference existed in the Direct
Rendering Manager (DRM) driver for VMWare devices in the Linux kernel. A
local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2017-7261)

Li Qiang discovered that an integer overflow vulnerability existed in the
Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) driver for VMWare devices in the Linux
kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-7294)

It was discovered that an information leak existed in the set_mempolicy and
mbind compat syscalls in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this
to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2017-7616)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
linux-image-4.4.0-78-generic 4.4.0-78.99~14.04.2
linux-image-4.4.0-78-generic-lpae 4.4.0-78.99~14.04.2
linux-image-4.4.0-78-lowlatency 4.4.0-78.99~14.04.2
linux-image-4.4.0-78-powerpc-e500mc 4.4.0-78.99~14.04.2
linux-image-4.4.0-78-powerpc-smp 4.4.0-78.99~14.04.2
linux-image-4.4.0-78-powerpc64-emb 4.4.0-78.99~14.04.2
linux-image-4.4.0-78-powerpc64-smp 4.4.0-78.99~14.04.2
linux-image-generic-lpae-lts-xenial 4.4.0.78.63
linux-image-generic-lts-xenial 4.4.0.78.63
linux-image-lowlatency-lts-xenial 4.4.0.78.63
linux-image-powerpc-e500mc-lts-xenial 4.4.0.78.63
linux-image-powerpc-smp-lts-xenial 4.4.0.78.63
linux-image-powerpc64-emb-lts-xenial 4.4.0.78.63
linux-image-powerpc64-smp-lts-xenial 4.4.0.78.63

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.
