Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 3977-3 - USN-3977-1 and USN-3977-2 provided mitigations for Microarchitectural Data Sampling vulnerabilities in Intel Microcode for a large number of Intel processor families. This update provides the corresponding updated microcode mitigations for the Intel Sandy Bridge processor family Ke Sun, Henrique Kawakami, Kekai Hu, Rodrigo Branco, Giorgi Maisuradze, Dan Horea Lutas, Andrei Lutas, Volodymyr Pikhur, Stephan van Schaik, Alyssa Milburn, Sebastian Österlund, Pietro Frigo, Kaveh Razavi, Herbert Bos, Cristiano Giuffrida, Moritz Lipp, Michael Schwarz, and Daniel Gruss discovered that memory previously stored in microarchitectural fill buffers of an Intel CPU core may be exposed to a malicious process that is executing on the same CPU core. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. Various other issues were also addressed.

==========================================================================

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
- Ubuntu 14.04 ESM

Summary:

The system could be made to expose sensitive information.

Software Description:
- intel-microcode: Processor microcode for Intel CPUs

Details:

USN-3977-1 and USN-3977-2 provided mitigations for Microarchitectural
Data Sampling (MDS) vulnerabilities in Intel Microcode for a
large number of Intel processor families. This update provides the
corresponding updated microcode mitigations for the Intel Sandy Bridge
processor family

van Schaik, Alyssa Milburn, Sebastian Österlund, Pietro Frigo, Kaveh
Razavi, Herbert Bos, and Cristiano Giuffrida discovered that memory
previously stored in microarchitectural load ports of an Intel CPU core may
be exposed to a malicious process that is executing on the same CPU core. A
local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information.
(CVE-2018-12127)

microarchitectural buffers of an Intel CPU core may be exposed to a
malicious process that is executing on the same CPU core. A local attacker
could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2019-11091)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 19.04:
intel-microcode 3.20190618.0ubuntu0.19.04.1

Ubuntu 18.10:
intel-microcode 3.20190618.0ubuntu0.18.10.1

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
intel-microcode 3.20190618.0ubuntu0.18.04.1

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
intel-microcode 3.20190618.0ubuntu0.16.04.1

Ubuntu 14.04 ESM:
intel-microcode 3.20190618.0ubuntu0.14.04.1

After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
all the necessary changes.
