Ubuntu Security Notice 4017-1 - Jonathan Looney discovered that the TCP retransmission queue implementation in the Linux kernel could be fragmented when handling certain TCP Selective Acknowledgment sequences. A remote attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. Jonathan Looney discovered that an integer overflow existed in the Linux kernel when handling TCP Selective Acknowledgments. A remote attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

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

- Ubuntu 19.04
- Ubuntu 18.10
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Summary:

The system could be made to crash if it received specially crafted
network traffic.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel
- linux-aws: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-gcp: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2
- linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Snapdragon processors
- linux-azure: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
- linux-hwe: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-oem: Linux kernel for OEM processors
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-aws-hwe: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS-HWE) systems

Details:

Jonathan Looney discovered that the TCP retransmission queue implementation
in the Linux kernel could be fragmented when handling certain TCP Selective
Acknowledgment (SACK) sequences. A remote attacker could use this to cause
a denial of service. (CVE-2019-11478)

Jonathan Looney discovered that an integer overflow existed in the Linux
kernel when handling TCP Selective Acknowledgments (SACKs). A remote
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2019-11477)

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.
