Ubuntu Security Notice 4363-1 - It was discovered that the Serial CAN interface driver in the Linux kernel did not properly initialize data. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. It was discovered that the linux kernel did not properly validate certain mount options to the tmpfs virtual memory file system. A local attacker with the ability to specify mount options could use this to cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

linux, linux-aws, linux-aws-hwe, linux-gcp, linux-gke-4.15, linux-hwe,
linux-oem, linux-oracle, linux-snapdragon vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- 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-gke-4.15: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-oem: Linux kernel for OEM systems
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Qualcomm Snapdragon processors
- linux-aws-hwe: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS-HWE) systems
- linux-gcp: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-hwe: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel

Details:

It was discovered that the Serial CAN interface driver in the Linux kernel
did not properly initialize data. A local attacker could use this to expose
sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2020-11494)

It was discovered that the linux kernel did not properly validate certain
mount options to the tmpfs virtual memory file system. A local attacker
with the ability to specify mount options could use this to cause a denial
of service (system crash). (CVE-2020-11565)

David Gibson discovered that the Linux kernel on Power9 CPUs did not
properly save and restore Authority Mask registers state in some
situations. A local attacker in a guest VM could use this to cause a denial
of service (host system crash). (CVE-2020-11669)

It was discovered that the block layer in the Linux kernel contained a race
condition leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker could
possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2020-12657)

Update instructions:

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.
