Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 4689-2 - USN-4689-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the NVIDIA graphics drivers. This update provides the corresponding updates for the NVIDIA Linux DKMS kernel modules. It was discovered that the NVIDIA GPU display driver for the Linux kernel contained a vulnerability that allowed user-mode clients to access legacy privileged APIs. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or escalate privileges. Various other issues were also addressed.

Details:

USN-4689-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the NVIDIA graphics drivers.
This update provides the corresponding updates for the NVIDIA Linux
DKMS kernel modules.

Original advisory details:

It was discovered that the NVIDIA GPU display driver for the Linux kernel
contained a vulnerability that allowed user-mode clients to access legacy
privileged APIs. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service or escalate privileges. (CVE-2021-1052)

It was discovered that the NVIDIA GPU display driver for the Linux kernel
did not properly validate a pointer received from userspace in some
situations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service.
(CVE-2021-1053)

Xinyuan Lyu discovered that the NVIDIA GPU display driver for the Linux
kernel did not properly restrict device-level GPU isolation. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly expose
sensitive information. (CVE-2021-1056)

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.
