Ubuntu Security Notice 4413-1 - Matthew Sheets discovered that the SELinux network label handling implementation in the Linux kernel could be coerced into de-referencing a NULL pointer. A remote attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. It was discovered that the SCSI generic driver in the Linux kernel did not properly handle certain error conditions correctly. A local privileged attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4413-1

linux-gke-5.0, linux-oem-osp1 vulnerabilities
=========================================================================
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-gke-5.0: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-oem-osp1: Linux kernel for OEM systems

Details:

Matthew Sheets discovered that the SELinux network label handling
implementation in the Linux kernel could be coerced into de-referencing a
NULL pointer. A remote attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash). (CVE-2020-10711)

It was discovered that the SCSI generic (sg) driver in the Linux kernel did
not properly handle certain error conditions correctly. A local privileged
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2020-12770)

It was discovered that the USB Gadget device driver in the Linux kernel did
not validate arguments passed from configfs in some situations. A local
attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash) or possibly expose sensitive information. (CVE-2020-13143)

Dmitry Vyukov discovered that the SELinux netlink security hook in the
Linux kernel did not validate messages in some situations. A privileged
attacker could use this to bypass SELinux netlink restrictions.
(CVE-2020-10751)

It was discovered that the KVM implementation in the Linux kernel did not
properly deallocate memory on initialization for some processors. A local
attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service.
(CVE-2020-12768)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
linux-image-5.0.0-1043-gke 5.0.0-1043.44
linux-image-5.0.0-1063-oem-osp1 5.0.0-1063.68
linux-image-gke-5.0 5.0.0.1043.28
linux-image-oem-osp1 5.0.0.1063.61

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.
