Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3848-1

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3848-1
Posted Dec 21, 2018
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 3848-1 - It was discovered that a double free existed in the AMD GPIO driver in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. It was discovered that an integer overrun vulnerability existed in the POSIX timers implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. Kanda Motohiro discovered that writing extended attributes to an XFS file system in the Linux kernel in certain situations could cause an error condition to occur. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3848-1
December 20, 2018

linux, linux-aws, linux-kvm, linux-raspi2, linux-snapdragon vulnerabilities
=========================================================================
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- 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-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2
- linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Snapdragon processors

Details:

It was discovered that a double free existed in the AMD GPIO driver in the
Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-18174)

It was discovered that an integer overrun vulnerability existed in the
POSIX timers implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2018-12896)

Kanda Motohiro discovered that writing extended attributes to an XFS file
system in the Linux kernel in certain situations could cause an error
condition to occur. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service. (CVE-2018-18690)

It was discovered that an integer overflow vulnerability existed in the
CDROM driver of the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to expose
sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2018-18710)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
linux-image-4.4.0-1039-kvm 4.4.0-1039.45
linux-image-4.4.0-1074-aws 4.4.0-1074.84

linux-image-4.4.0-141-generic 4.4.0-141.167
linux-image-4.4.0-141-generic-lpae 4.4.0-141.167
linux-image-4.4.0-141-lowlatency 4.4.0-141.167
linux-image-4.4.0-141-powerpc-e500mc 4.4.0-141.167
linux-image-4.4.0-141-powerpc-smp 4.4.0-141.167
linux-image-4.4.0-141-powerpc64-emb 4.4.0-141.167

linux-image-aws 4.4.0.1074.76
linux-image-generic 4.4.0.141.147
linux-image-generic-lpae 4.4.0.141.147
linux-image-kvm 4.4.0.1039.38
linux-image-lowlatency 4.4.0.141.147
linux-image-powerpc-e500mc 4.4.0.141.147
linux-image-powerpc-smp 4.4.0.141.147
linux-image-powerpc64-emb 4.4.0.141.147
linux-image-powerpc64-smp 4.4.0.141.147
linux-image-raspi2 4.4.0.1102.102
linux-image-snapdragon 4.4.0.1106.98

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.
