Ubuntu Security Notice 4878-1 - It was discovered that the Marvell WiFi-Ex device driver in the Linux kernel did not properly validate ad-hoc SSIDs. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. Ryota Shiga discovered that the sockopt BPF hooks in the Linux kernel could allow a user space program to probe for valid kernel addresses. A local attacker could use this to ease exploitation of another kernel vulnerability. Various other issues were also addressed.

==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel
- linux-aws: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-azure: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
- linux-gcp: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-gkeop: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-raspi: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi (V8) systems
- linux-aws-5.4: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-azure-5.4: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure cloud systems
- linux-gcp-5.4: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-gke-5.4: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-gkeop-5.4: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-hwe-5.4: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-oracle-5.4: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-raspi-5.4: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi (V8) systems

Details:

It was discovered that the Marvell WiFi-Ex device driver in the Linux
kernel did not properly validate ad-hoc SSIDs. A local attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2020-36158)

Ryota Shiga discovered that the sockopt BPF hooks in the Linux kernel could
allow a user space program to probe for valid kernel addresses. A local
attacker could use this to ease exploitation of another kernel
vulnerability. (CVE-2021-20239)

It was discovered that the priority inheritance futex implementation in the
Linux kernel contained a race condition, 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-2021-3347)

吴异 discovered that the NFS implementation in the Linux kernel did not
properly prevent access outside of an NFS export that is a subdirectory of
a file system. An attacker could possibly use this to bypass NFS access
restrictions. (CVE-2021-3178)

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.
