Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4135-2

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4135-2
Posted Sep 18, 2019
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 4135-2 - Peter Pi discovered a buffer overflow in the virtio network backend implementation in the Linux kernel. An attacker in a guest may be able to use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code in the host OS. It was discovered that the Linux kernel on PowerPC architectures did not properly handle Facility Unavailable exceptions in some situations. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. Various other issues were also addressed.

linux, linux-aws, linux-azure, linux-lts-trusty, linux-lts-xenial
vulnerabilities
=========================================================================
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 14.04 ESM
- Ubuntu 12.04 ESM

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-azure: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
- linux-lts-xenial: Linux hardware enablement kernel from Xenial for Trusty
- linux-lts-trusty: Linux hardware enablement kernel from Trusty for Precise ESM

Details:

Peter Pi discovered a buffer overflow in the virtio network backend
(vhost_net) implementation in the Linux kernel. An attacker in a guest may
be able to use this to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code in the host OS. (CVE-2019-14835)

It was discovered that the Linux kernel on PowerPC architectures did not
properly handle Facility Unavailable exceptions in some situations. A local
attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2019-15030)

It was discovered that the Linux kernel on PowerPC architectures did not
properly handle exceptions on interrupts in some situations. A local
attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2019-15031)

Update instructions:

package versions:

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.
