Ubuntu Security Notice 4346-1 - It was discovered that the QLogic Fibre Channel driver in the Linux kernel did not properly check for error, leading to a NULL pointer dereference. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service. It was discovered that the Intel Wi-Fi driver in the Linux kernel did not properly check for errors in some situations. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4346-1
April 29, 2020

linux, linux-aws, linux-kvm, linux-lts-xenial, linux-raspi2,
linux-snapdragon vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 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-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2
- linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Snapdragon processors
- linux-lts-xenial: Linux hardware enablement kernel from Xenial for Trusty

Details:

It was discovered that the QLogic Fibre Channel driver in the Linux kernel
did not properly check for error, leading to a NULL pointer dereference. A
local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash). (CVE-2019-16233)

It was discovered that the Intel Wi-Fi driver in the Linux kernel did not
properly check for errors in some situations. A local attacker could
possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2019-16234)

Tristan Madani discovered that the block I/O tracing implementation in the
Linux kernel contained a race condition. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly expose sensitive
information. (CVE-2019-19768)

It was discovered that the virtual terminal implementation in the Linux
kernel contained a race condition. A local attacker could possibly use this
to cause a denial of service (system crash) or expose sensitive
information. (CVE-2020-8648)

Jordy Zomer discovered that the floppy driver in the Linux kernel did not
properly check for errors in some situations. A local attacker could
possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly
expose sensitive information. (CVE-2020-9383)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
linux-image-4.4.0-1070-kvm 4.4.0-1070.77
linux-image-4.4.0-1106-aws 4.4.0-1106.117

linux-image-4.4.0-178-generic 4.4.0-178.208
linux-image-4.4.0-178-generic-lpae 4.4.0-178.208
linux-image-4.4.0-178-lowlatency 4.4.0-178.208
linux-image-4.4.0-178-powerpc-e500mc 4.4.0-178.208
linux-image-4.4.0-178-powerpc-smp 4.4.0-178.208
linux-image-4.4.0-178-powerpc64-emb 4.4.0-178.208
linux-image-4.4.0-178-powerpc64-smp 4.4.0-178.208
linux-image-aws 4.4.0.1106.110
linux-image-generic 4.4.0.178.186
linux-image-generic-lpae 4.4.0.178.186
linux-image-kvm 4.4.0.1070.70
linux-image-lowlatency 4.4.0.178.186
linux-image-powerpc-e500mc 4.4.0.178.186
linux-image-powerpc-smp 4.4.0.178.186
linux-image-powerpc64-emb 4.4.0.178.186
linux-image-powerpc64-smp 4.4.0.178.186
linux-image-raspi2 4.4.0.1132.132
linux-image-snapdragon 4.4.0.1136.128
linux-image-virtual 4.4.0.178.186

Ubuntu 14.04 ESM:
linux-image-4.4.0-1066-aws 4.4.0-1066.70
linux-image-4.4.0-178-generic 4.4.0-178.208~14.04.1
linux-image-4.4.0-178-lowlatency 4.4.0-178.208~14.04.1
linux-image-aws 4.4.0.1066.67
linux-image-generic-lts-xenial 4.4.0.178.157
linux-image-lowlatency-lts-xenial 4.4.0.178.157
linux-image-virtual-lts-xenial 4.4.0.178.157

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.
