Kernel Live Patch Security Notice LSN-0053-1

Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that the Bluetooth stack did not correctly check that device name strings were NULL terminated. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service, or leak contents of kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy. It was discovered that the Linux kernel on ARM processors allowed a tracing process to modify a syscall after a seccomp decision had been made on that syscall. A local attacker could possibly use this to bypass seccomp restrictions. Various other issues were also addressed.

linux vulnerability
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu:

| Series | Base kernel | Arch | flavors |
|------------------+--------------+----------+------------------|
| Ubuntu 18.04 LTS | 4.15.0 | amd64 | generic |
| Ubuntu 18.04 LTS | 4.15.0 | amd64 | lowlatency |
| Ubuntu 16.04 LTS | 4.4.0 | amd64 | generic |
| Ubuntu 16.04 LTS | 4.4.0 | amd64 | lowlatency |

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel

Details:

Vasiliy Kulikov discovered that the Bluetooth stack did not correctly check
that device name strings were NULL terminated. A local attacker could
exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service, or leak
contents of kernel stack memory, leading to a loss of privacy.
(CVE-2011-1079)

It was discovered that the Linux kernel on ARM processors allowed a tracing
process to modify a syscall after a seccomp decision had been made on that
syscall. A local attacker could possibly use this to bypass seccomp
restrictions. (CVE-2019-2054)

It was discovered that a race condition leading to a use-after-free existed
in the Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS) protocol implementation in the Linux
kernel. The RDS protocol is blacklisted by default in Ubuntu. If enabled, a
local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash)
or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-11815)

It was discovered that the ext4 file system implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly zero out memory in some situations. A local
attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory).
(CVE-2019-11833)

It was discovered that the Bluetooth Human Interface Device Protocol (HIDP)
implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly verify strings were
NULL terminated in certain situations. A local attacker could use this to
expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2019-11884)

Update instructions:

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

| Kernel | Version | flavors |
|--------------------------+----------+--------------------------|
| 4.4.0-148.174 | 53.1 | lowlatency, generic |
| 4.4.0-150.176 | 53.1 | generic, lowlatency |
| 4.4.0-151.178 | 53.1 | lowlatency, generic |
| 4.4.0-154.181 | 53.1 | lowlatency, generic |
| 4.15.0-50.54 | 53.1 | generic, lowlatency |
| 4.15.0-50.54~16.04.1 | 53.1 | generic, lowlatency |
| 4.15.0-51.55 | 53.1 | generic, lowlatency |
| 4.15.0-51.55~16.04.1 | 53.1 | generic, lowlatency |
| 4.15.0-52.56 | 53.1 | lowlatency, generic |
| 4.15.0-52.56~16.04.1 | 53.1 | generic, lowlatency |
| 4.15.0-54.58 | 53.1 | generic, lowlatency |
| 4.15.0-54.58~16.04.1 | 53.1 | generic, lowlatency |
