linux-oracle vulnerability
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 16.04 ESM

Summary:

The system could be made to crash or run programs as an administrator.

Software Description:
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems

Details:

It was discovered that the virtual terminal driver in the Linux kernel
did not properly handle VGA console font changes, leading to an
out-of-bounds write. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial
of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 16.04 ESM:
linux-image-4.15.0-1105-oracle 4.15.0-1105.116~16.04.1
linux-image-oracle 4.15.0.1105.89

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.
