Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 3392-1 - USN-3378-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel. Unfortunately, a regression was introduced that prevented conntrack from working correctly in some situations. This update fixes the problem. Fan Wu and Shixiong Zhao discovered a race condition between inotify events and vfs rename operations in the Linux kernel. An unprivileged local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.

linux, linux-aws, linux-gke, linux-raspi2, linux-snapdragon regression
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Summary:

USN-3378-1 introduced a regression in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel
- linux-aws: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-gke: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2
- linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Snapdragon processors

Details:

USN-3378-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel. Unfortunately, a
regression was introduced that prevented conntrack from working
correctly in some situations. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

Fan Wu and Shixiong Zhao discovered a race condition between inotify events
and vfs rename operations in the Linux kernel. An unprivileged local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-7533)

It was discovered that the Linux kernel did not properly restrict
RLIMIT_STACK size. A local attacker could use this in conjunction with
another vulnerability to possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-1000365)

aea1/4o discovered that the Virtio GPU driver in the Linux kernel did not
properly free memory in some situations. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service (memory consumption). (CVE-2017-10810)

c3cPS discovered that the RxRPC Kerberos 5 ticket handling code in the
Linux kernel did not properly verify metadata. A remote attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-7482)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
linux-image-4.4.0-1027-gke 4.4.0-1027.27
linux-image-4.4.0-1031-aws 4.4.0-1031.40
linux-image-4.4.0-1070-raspi2 4.4.0-1070.78
linux-image-4.4.0-1072-snapdragon 4.4.0-1072.77
linux-image-4.4.0-92-generic 4.4.0-92.115
linux-image-4.4.0-92-generic-lpae 4.4.0-92.115
linux-image-4.4.0-92-lowlatency 4.4.0-92.115
linux-image-4.4.0-92-powerpc-e500mc 4.4.0-92.115
linux-image-4.4.0-92-powerpc-smp 4.4.0-92.115
linux-image-4.4.0-92-powerpc64-emb 4.4.0-92.115
linux-image-4.4.0-92-powerpc64-smp 4.4.0-92.115
linux-image-aws 4.4.0.1031.33
linux-image-generic 4.4.0.92.97
linux-image-generic-lpae 4.4.0.92.97
linux-image-gke 4.4.0.1027.28
linux-image-lowlatency 4.4.0.92.97
linux-image-powerpc-e500mc 4.4.0.92.97
linux-image-powerpc-smp 4.4.0.92.97
linux-image-powerpc64-emb 4.4.0.92.97
linux-image-powerpc64-smp 4.4.0.92.97
linux-image-raspi2 4.4.0.1070.70
linux-image-snapdragon 4.4.0.1072.64

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.
