Ubuntu Security Notice 4116-1 - It was discovered that a use-after-free error existed in the block layer subsystem of the Linux kernel when certain failure conditions occurred. A local attacker could possibly 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.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4116-1

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

- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel
- linux-aws: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2
- linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Snapdragon processors

Details:

It was discovered that a use-after-free error existed in the block layer
subsystem of the Linux kernel when certain failure conditions occurred. A
local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-20856)

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)

Praveen Pandey discovered that the Linux kernel did not properly validate
sent signals in some situations on PowerPC systems with transactional
memory disabled. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service. (CVE-2019-13648)

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)

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 16.04 LTS:
linux-image-4.4.0-1056-kvm 4.4.0-1056.63
linux-image-4.4.0-1092-aws 4.4.0-1092.103
linux-image-4.4.0-1120-raspi2 4.4.0-1120.129
linux-image-4.4.0-1124-snapdragon 4.4.0-1124.130
linux-image-4.4.0-161-generic 4.4.0-161.189
linux-image-4.4.0-161-generic-lpae 4.4.0-161.189
linux-image-4.4.0-161-lowlatency 4.4.0-161.189
linux-image-4.4.0-161-powerpc-e500mc 4.4.0-161.189
linux-image-4.4.0-161-powerpc-smp 4.4.0-161.189
linux-image-4.4.0-161-powerpc64-emb 4.4.0-161.189
linux-image-4.4.0-161-powerpc64-smp 4.4.0-161.189
linux-image-aws 4.4.0.1092.96
linux-image-generic 4.4.0.161.169
linux-image-generic-lpae 4.4.0.161.169
linux-image-kvm 4.4.0.1056.56
linux-image-lowlatency 4.4.0.161.169
linux-image-powerpc-e500mc 4.4.0.161.169
linux-image-powerpc-smp 4.4.0.161.169
linux-image-powerpc64-emb 4.4.0.161.169
linux-image-powerpc64-smp 4.4.0.161.169
linux-image-raspi2 4.4.0.1120.120
linux-image-snapdragon 4.4.0.1124.116
linux-image-virtual 4.4.0.161.169

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.
