Ubuntu Security Notice 4117-1 - It was discovered that a heap buffer overflow existed in the Marvell Wireless LAN device driver for the Linux kernel. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. Amit Klein and Benny Pinkas discovered that the Linux kernel did not sufficiently randomize IP ID values generated for connectionless networking protocols. A remote attacker could use this to track particular Linux devices. Various other issues were also addressed.

linux-aws vulnerabilities
=========================================================================
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 19.04

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-aws: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems

Details:

It was discovered that a heap buffer overflow existed in the Marvell
Wireless LAN device driver for the Linux kernel. An attacker could use this
to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2019-10126)

Amit Klein and Benny Pinkas discovered that the Linux kernel did not
sufficiently randomize IP ID values generated for connectionless networking
protocols. A remote attacker could use this to track particular Linux
devices. (CVE-2019-10638)

It was discovered that a NULL pointer dereference vulnerability existed in
the Near-field communication (NFC) implementation in the Linux kernel. A
local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2019-12984)

Jann Horn discovered a use-after-free vulnerability in the Linux kernel
when accessing LDT entries in some situations. A local attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-13233)

Jann Horn discovered that the ptrace implementation in the Linux kernel did
not properly record credentials in some situations. A local attacker could
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly gain
administrative privileges. (CVE-2019-13272)

It was discovered that the floppy driver in the Linux kernel did not
properly validate meta data, leading to a buffer overread. A local attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2019-14283)

It was discovered that the floppy driver in the Linux kernel did not
properly validate ioctl() calls, leading to a division-by-zero. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2019-14284)

It was discovered that the Marvell Wireless LAN device driver in the Linux
kernel did not properly validate the BSS descriptor. A local attacker could
possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-3846)

Jason Wang discovered that an infinite loop vulnerability existed in the
virtio net driver in the Linux kernel. A local attacker in a guest VM could
possibly use this to cause a denial of service in the host system.
(CVE-2019-3900)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 19.04:
linux-image-5.0.0-1014-aws 5.0.0-1014.16
linux-image-aws 5.0.0.1014.15

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.
