Ubuntu Security Notice 4910-1 - 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. It was discovered that the BPF verifier in the Linux kernel did not properly handle signed add32 and sub integer overflows. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.

linux-oracle, linux-raspi vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 20.10
- Ubuntu 20.04 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-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-raspi: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi (V8) systems
- linux-hwe-5.8: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel

Details:

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 BPF verifier in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle signed add32 and sub integer overflows. A local attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-20268)

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)

It was discovered that the network block device (nbd) driver in the Linux
kernel contained a use-after-free vulnerability during device setup. A
local attacker with access to the nbd device could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2021-3348)

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)

Update instructions:

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

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.
