Ubuntu Security Notice USN-5813-1

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-5813-1
Posted Jan 20, 2023
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 5813-1 - It was discovered that the NFSD implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly handle some RPC messages, leading to a buffer overflow. A remote attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. Tamás Koczka discovered that the Bluetooth L2CAP handshake implementation in the Linux kernel contained multiple use-after-free vulnerabilities. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code.

linux-aws-5.4, linux-gkeop, linux-hwe-5.4, linux-oracle, linux-snapdragon
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 Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-gkeop: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-aws-5.4: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-hwe-5.4: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Qualcomm Snapdragon processors

Details:

It was discovered that the NFSD implementation in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle some RPC messages, leading to a buffer overflow. A remote
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-43945)

Tamás Koczka discovered that the Bluetooth L2CAP handshake implementation
in the Linux kernel contained multiple use-after-free vulnerabilities. A
physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-42896)

It was discovered that the Xen netback driver in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle packets structured in certain ways. An attacker in a guest
VM could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (host NIC
availability). (CVE-2022-3643)

It was discovered that an integer overflow vulnerability existed in the
Bluetooth subsystem in the Linux kernel. A physically proximate attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2022-45934)

linux-image-snapdragon-hwe-18.04 5.4.0.137.154~18.04.112
linux-image-virtual-hwe-18.04 5.4.0.137.154~18.04.112

Ubuntu 16.04 ESM:

linux-image-oracle 4.15.0.1113.95

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.
