Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4367-2

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4367-2
Posted May 29, 2020
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 4367-2 - USN-4367-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the 5.4 Linux kernel. Unfortunately, that update introduced a regression in overlayfs. This update corrects the problem. It was discovered that the btrfs implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly detect that a block was marked dirty in some situations. An attacker could use this to specially craft a file system image that, when unmounted, could cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

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

- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Summary:

USN-4367-1 introduced a regression in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel

Details:

USN-4367-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the 5.4 Linux kernel. Unfortunately,
that update introduced a regression in overlayfs. This update corrects
the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

It was discovered that the btrfs implementation in the Linux kernel did not
properly detect that a block was marked dirty in some situations. An
attacker could use this to specially craft a file system image that, when
unmounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2019-19377)

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)

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:

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

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
linux-image-5.4.0-33-generic 5.4.0-33.37
linux-image-5.4.0-33-generic-lpae 5.4.0-33.37
linux-image-5.4.0-33-lowlatency 5.4.0-33.37
linux-image-generic 5.4.0.33.38
linux-image-generic-lpae 5.4.0.33.38
linux-image-lowlatency 5.4.0.33.38
linux-image-oem 5.4.0.33.38
linux-image-oem-osp1 5.4.0.33.38
linux-image-virtual 5.4.0.33.38

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.
