Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4486-1
September 02, 2020

linux, linux-aws, linux-kvm, linux-lts-xenial, linux-raspi2,
linux-snapdragon vulnerability
=========================================================================
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 ESM

Summary:

The Linux kernel could be made to crash if it mounted a malicious XFS
file system.

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 (V8) systems
- linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Qualcomm Snapdragon processors
- linux-lts-xenial: Linux hardware enablement kernel from Xenial for Trusty

Details:

Wen Xu discovered that the XFS filesystem implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly validate meta-data information. An attacker could
use this to construct a malicious xfs image that, when mounted, could cause
a denial of service (system crash).

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.
