Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4901-1
Posted Apr 7, 2021
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 4901-1 - Adam Nichols discovered that heap overflows existed in the iSCSI subsystem 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 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. Various other issues were also addressed.

linux-lts-trusty vulnerabilities
=========================================================================
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 12.04 ESM

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-lts-trusty: Linux hardware enablement kernel from Trusty for Precise ESM

Details:

Adam Nichols discovered that heap overflows existed in the iSCSI subsystem
in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-27365)

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)

Adam Nichols discovered that the iSCSI subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly restrict access to iSCSI transport handles. A local attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service or expose sensitive information
(kernel pointer addresses). (CVE-2021-27363)

Adam Nichols discovered that an out-of-bounds read existed in the iSCSI
subsystem in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash) or expose sensitive information (kernel
memory). (CVE-2021-27364)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 12.04 ESM:
linux-image-3.13.0-185-generic 3.13.0-185.236~12.04.1
linux-image-generic-lts-trusty 3.13.0.185.170

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.
