Ubuntu Security Notice 3314-1 - It was discovered that the keyring implementation in the Linux kernel in some situations did not prevent special internal keyrings from being joined by userspace keyrings. A privileged local attacker could use this to bypass module verification. It was discovered that a buffer overflow existed in the trace subsystem in the Linux kernel. A privileged local attacker could use this to execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.

linux, linux-raspi2 vulnerabilities
===========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 17.04

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel
- linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2

Details:

It was discovered that the keyring implementation in the Linux kernel in
some situations did not prevent special internal keyrings from being joined
by userspace keyrings. A privileged local attacker could use this to bypass
module verification. (CVE-2016-9604)

It was discovered that a buffer overflow existed in the trace subsystem in
the Linux kernel. A privileged local attacker could use this to execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-0605)

Daniel Jiang discovered that a race condition existed in the ipv4 ping
socket implementation in the Linux kernel. A local privileged attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2017-2671)

JongHwan Kim discovered an out-of-bounds read in the TCP stack of the Linux
kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or leak sensitive information. (CVE-2017-7277)

Eric Biggers discovered a memory leak in the keyring implementation in the
Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(memory consumption). (CVE-2017-7472)

Sabrina Dubroca discovered that the asynchronous cryptographic hash (ahash)
implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly handle a full request
queue. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(infinite recursion). (CVE-2017-7618)

Tuomas Haanp=E4=E4 and Ari Kauppi discovered that the NFSv2 and NFSv3 server
implementations in the Linux kernel did not properly handle certain long
RPC replies. A remote attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash). (CVE-2017-7645)

Tommi Rantala and Brad Spengler discovered that the memory manager in the
Linux kernel did not properly enforce the CONFIG_STRICT_DEVMEM protection
mechanism. A local attacker with access to /dev/mem could use this to
expose sensitive information or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-7889)

Tuomas Haanp=E4=E4 and Ari Kauppi discovered that the NFSv2 and NFSv3 server
implementations in the Linux kernel did not properly check for the end of
buffer. A remote attacker could use this to craft requests that cause a
denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-7895)

Fabian Gr=FCnbichler discovered that the Packet action API implementation in
the Linux kernel improperly handled uninitialized data. A local attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-7979)

It was discovered that the Conexant USB driver in the Linux kernel
improperly handled memory in some configurations. A local attacker could
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2017-8063)

It was discovered that the DVD USB framework in the Linux kernel improperly
handled memory in some configurations. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2017-8064)

It was discovered that the virtio console driver in the Linux kernel
improperly handled memory. A local attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2017-8067)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 17.04:
linux-image-4.10.0-1006-raspi2 4.10.0-1006.8
linux-image-4.10.0-22-generic 4.10.0-22.24
linux-image-4.10.0-22-generic-lpae 4.10.0-22.24
linux-image-4.10.0-22-lowlatency 4.10.0-22.24
linux-image-generic 4.10.0.22.24
linux-image-generic-lpae 4.10.0.22.24
linux-image-lowlatency 4.10.0.22.24
linux-image-raspi2 4.10.0.1006.8

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.
