Kernel Live Patch Security Notice LSN-0082-1

Kernel Live Patch Security Notice LSN-0082-1
Posted Nov 12, 2021
Authored by Benjamin M. Romer

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). De4dCr0w of 360 Alpha Lab discovered that the BPF verifier in the Linux kernel did not properly handle mod32 destination register truncation when the source register was known to be 0. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory) or possibly execute arbitrary code. Various other vulnerabilities were also addressed.

Linux kernel vulnerabilities

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

- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 ESM

Summary

Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.

Software Description

- linux - Linux kernel
- linux-gcp - Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-gke - Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-gkeop - Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-oem - Linux kernel for OEM systems

Details

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)

De4dCr0w of 360 Alpha Lab discovered that the BPF verifier in the Linux
kernel did not properly handle mod32 destination register truncation
when the source register was known to be 0. A local attacker could use
this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory) or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-3444)

kernel: use-after-free in route4_change() in net/sched/cls_route.c
(CVE-2021-3715)
