linux, linux-hwe vulnerability
=========================================================================
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 19.04
- Ubuntu 18.10
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Summary:

64-Bit PowerPC systems could be made to expose sensitive information.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel
- linux-hwe: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel

Details:

It was discovered that the Linux kernel did not properly separate certain
memory mappings when creating new userspace processes on 64-bit Power
(ppc64el) systems. A local attacker could use this to access memory
contents or cause memory corruption of other processes on the system.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 19.04:
linux-image-5.0.0-19-generic 5.0.0-19.20
linux-image-generic 5.0.0.19.20
linux-image-virtual 5.0.0.19.20

Ubuntu 18.10:
linux-image-4.18.0-24-generic 4.18.0-24.25
linux-image-generic 4.18.0.24.25
linux-image-powerpc-e500mc 4.18.0.24.25
linux-image-powerpc-smp 4.18.0.24.25
linux-image-powerpc64-emb 4.18.0.24.25
linux-image-powerpc64-smp 4.18.0.24.25
linux-image-virtual 4.18.0.24.25

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
linux-image-4.18.0-24-generic 4.18.0-24.25~18.04.1
linux-image-generic-hwe-18.04 4.18.0.24.74
linux-image-virtual-hwe-18.04 4.18.0.24.74

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.
