Ubuntu Security Notice 3917-1 - The snapd default seccomp filter for strict mode snaps blocks the use of the ioctl system call when used with TIOCSTI as the second argument to the system call. Jann Horn discovered that this restriction could be circumvented on 64 bit architectures. A malicious snap could exploit this to bypass intended access restrictions to insert characters into the terminal's input queue. On Ubuntu, snapd typically will have already automatically refreshed itself to snapd 2.37.4 which is unaffected.

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

- Ubuntu 18.10
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

An intended access restriction in snapd could be bypassed by strict mode
snaps on 64 bit architectures.

Software Description:
- snapd: Daemon and tooling that enable snap packages

Details:

The snapd default seccomp filter for strict mode snaps blocks the use of
the ioctl() system call when used with TIOCSTI as the second argument to
the system call. Jann Horn discovered that this restriction could be
circumvented on 64 bit architectures. A malicious snap could exploit this
to bypass intended access restrictions to insert characters into the
terminal's input queue. On Ubuntu, snapd typically will have already
automatically refreshed itself to snapd 2.37.4 which is unaffected.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 18.10:
snapd 2.37.4+18.10.1

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
snapd 2.37.4+18.04.1

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
snapd 2.37.4ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
snapd 2.37.4~14.04.1

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
