Kernel Live Patch Security Notice LSN-0074-1

Kernel Live Patch Security Notice LSN-0074-1
Posted Feb 1, 2021
Authored by Benjamin M. Romer

Elena Petrova discovered that the pin controller device tree implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly handle string references. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). Andy Nguyen discovered that the Bluetooth A2MP implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly initialize memory in some situations. A physically proximate remote attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). Various other issues were also addressed.

Linux kernel vulnerabilities

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

- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 ESM

Summary

Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.

Software Description

- linux - Linux kernel
- linux-aws - Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-aws-fips - Linux FIPS kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS)
systems
- linux-azure - Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
- linux-azure-fips - Linux FIPS kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud
systems
- linux-fips - Linux FIPS kernel
- linux-gcp - Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-gke - Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-gkeop - Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) On-
Prem systems
- linux-oem - Linux kernel for OEM systems

Details

Elena Petrova discovered that the pin controller device tree
implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly handle string
references. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive
information (kernel memory). (CVE-2020-0427)

Andy Nguyen discovered that the Bluetooth A2MP implementation in the
Linux kernel did not properly initialize memory in some situations. A
physically proximate remote attacker could use this to expose sensitive
information (kernel memory). (CVE-2020-12352)

It was discovered that the GENEVE tunnel implementation in the Linux
kernel when combined with IPSec did not properly select IP routes in
some situations. An attacker could use this to expose sensitive
information (unencrypted network traffic). (CVE-2020-25645)

It was discovered that the LIO SCSI target implementation in the Linux
kernel performed insufficient identifier checking in certain XCOPY
requests. An attacker with access to at least one LUN in a multiple
backstore environment could use this to expose sensitive information or
modify data. (CVE-2020-28374)
