Ubuntu Security Notice 5879-1 - Kyle Zeng discovered that the sysctl implementation in the Linux kernel contained a stack-based buffer overflow. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or 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-hwe-5.19 vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-hwe-5.19: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel

Details:

Kyle Zeng discovered that the sysctl implementation in the Linux kernel
contained a stack-based buffer overflow. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2022-4378)

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 Bluetooth HCI implementation in the Linux kernel
did not properly deallocate memory in some situations. An attacker could
possibly use this cause a denial of service (memory exhaustion).
(CVE-2022-3619)

It was discovered that the Broadcom FullMAC USB WiFi driver in the Linux
kernel did not properly perform bounds checking in some situations. A
physically proximate attacker could use this to craft a malicious USB
device that when inserted, could cause a denial of service (system crash)
or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-3628)

It was discovered that a use-after-free vulnerability existed in the
Bluetooth stack in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2022-3640)

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)

Tamás Koczka discovered that the Bluetooth L2CAP implementation in the
Linux kernel did not properly initialize memory in some situations. A
physically proximate attacker could possibly use this to expose sensitive
information (kernel memory). (CVE-2022-42895)

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)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the qdisc implementation
in the Linux kernel, 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-2023-0590)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:
linux-image-5.19.0-32-generic 5.19.0-32.33~22.04.1
linux-image-5.19.0-32-generic-64k 5.19.0-32.33~22.04.1
linux-image-5.19.0-32-generic-lpae 5.19.0-32.33~22.04.1
linux-image-generic-64k-hwe-22.04 5.19.0.32.33~22.04.9
linux-image-generic-hwe-22.04 5.19.0.32.33~22.04.9
linux-image-generic-lpae-hwe-22.04 5.19.0.32.33~22.04.9
linux-image-virtual-hwe-22.04 5.19.0.32.33~22.04.9

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.
