Ubuntu Security Notice 4750-1 - Bodong Zhao discovered a use-after-free in the Sun keyboard driver implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. It was discovered that the jfs file system implementation in the Linux kernel contained an out-of-bounds read vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to possibly cause a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

Details:

Bodong Zhao discovered a use-after-free in the Sun keyboard driver
implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2020-25669)

It was discovered that the jfs file system implementation in the Linux
kernel contained an out-of-bounds read vulnerability. A local attacker
could use this to possibly cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2020-27815)

Shisong Qin and Bodong Zhao discovered that Speakup screen reader driver in
the Linux kernel did not correctly handle setting line discipline in some
situations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash). (CVE-2020-27830, CVE-2020-28941)

It was discovered that an information leak existed in the syscall
implementation in the Linux kernel on 32 bit systems. A local attacker
could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory).
(CVE-2020-28588)

Michael Kurth and Pawel Wieczorkiewicz discovered that the Xen event
processing backend in the Linux kernel did not properly limit the number of
events queued. An attacker in a guest VM could use this to cause a denial
of service in the host OS. (CVE-2020-29568)

Olivier Benjamin and Pawel Wieczorkiewicz discovered a race condition the
Xen paravirt block backend in the Linux kernel, leading to a use-after-free
vulnerability. An attacker in a guest VM could use this to cause a denial
of service in the host OS. (CVE-2020-29569)

Jann Horn discovered that the tty subsystem of the Linux kernel did not use
consistent locking in some situations, leading to a read-after-free
vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly expose sensitive information (kernel memory).
(CVE-2020-29660)

Jann Horn discovered a race condition in the tty subsystem of the Linux
kernel in the locking for the TIOCSPGRP ioctl(), leading to a use-after-
free vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2020-29661)

It was discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle filter rules in some situations. A local attacker with the
CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could use this to cause a denial of service.
(CVE-2021-20177)

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.
