Ubuntu Security Notice 4135-1 - 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.

=========================================================================
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 19.04
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- 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-azure: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
- linux-gcp: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2
- linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Snapdragon processors
- linux-gke-4.15: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-gke-5.0: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-hwe: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-oem: Linux kernel for OEM processors
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-aws-hwe: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS-HWE) systems

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)

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.
