Ubuntu Security Notice 4999-1 - Norbert Slusarek discovered a race condition in the CAN BCM networking protocol of the Linux kernel leading to multiple use-after-free vulnerabilities. A local attacker could use this issue to execute arbitrary code. Piotr Krysiuk discovered that the eBPF implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly enforce limits for pointer operations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.

- 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-aws-5.8: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-azure-5.8: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure cloud systems
- linux-gcp-5.8: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-hwe-5.8: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-oracle-5.8: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems

Details:

Norbert Slusarek discovered a race condition in the CAN BCM networking
protocol of the Linux kernel leading to multiple use-after-free
vulnerabilities. A local attacker could use this issue to execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2021-3609)

Piotr Krysiuk discovered that the eBPF implementation in the Linux kernel
did not properly enforce limits for pointer operations. A local attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-33200)

Mathy Vanhoef discovered that the Linux kernel’s WiFi implementation did
not properly clear received fragments from memory in some situations. A
physically proximate attacker could possibly use this issue to inject
packets or expose sensitive information. (CVE-2020-24586)

Mathy Vanhoef discovered that the Linux kernel’s WiFi implementation
incorrectly handled encrypted fragments. A physically proximate attacker
could possibly use this issue to decrypt fragments. (CVE-2020-24587)

Mathy Vanhoef discovered that the Linux kernel’s WiFi implementation
incorrectly handled certain malformed frames. If a user were tricked into
connecting to a malicious server, a physically proximate attacker could use
this issue to inject packets. (CVE-2020-24588)

Kiyin (尹亮) discovered that the NFC LLCP protocol implementation in the
Linux kernel contained a reference counting error. A local attacker could
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2020-25670)

Kiyin (尹亮) discovered that the NFC LLCP protocol implementation in the
Linux kernel did not properly deallocate memory in certain error
situations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(memory exhaustion). (CVE-2020-25671, CVE-2020-25672)

Kiyin (尹亮) discovered that the NFC LLCP protocol implementation in the
Linux kernel did not properly handle error conditions in some situations,
leading to an infinite loop. A local attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service. (CVE-2020-25673)

Mathy Vanhoef discovered that the Linux kernel’s WiFi implementation
incorrectly handled EAPOL frames from unauthenticated senders. A physically
proximate attacker could inject malicious packets to cause a denial of
service (system crash). (CVE-2020-26139)

Mathy Vanhoef discovered that the Linux kernel’s WiFi implementation did
not properly verify certain fragmented frames. A physically proximate
attacker could possibly use this issue to inject or decrypt packets.
(CVE-2020-26141)

Mathy Vanhoef discovered that the in the Linux kernel’s WiFi implementation
leading to accepting plaintext fragments. A physically proximate attacker
could use this issue to inject packets. (CVE-2020-26145)

Mathy Vanhoef discovered that the the Linux kernel’s WiFi implementation
leading to reassembling mixed encrypted and plaintext fragments. A
physically proximate attacker could possibly use this issue to inject
packets or exfiltrate selected fragments. (CVE-2020-26147)

Or Cohen discovered that the SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel
contained a race condition in some situations, leading to a use-after-free
condition. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-23133)

Piotr Krysiuk and Benedict Schlueter discovered that the eBPF
implementation in the Linux kernel performed out of bounds speculation on
pointer arithmetic. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive
information. (CVE-2021-29155)

Manfred Paul discovered that the extended Berkeley Packet Filter (eBPF)
implementation in the Linux kernel contained an out-of-bounds
vulnerability. A local attacker could use this issue to execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2021-31440)

Piotr Krysiuk discovered that the eBPF implementation in the Linux kernel
did not properly prevent speculative loads in certain situations. A local
attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory).
(CVE-2021-31829)

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.
