Ubuntu Security Notice USN-6071-1

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-6071-1
Posted May 11, 2023
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 6071-1 - It was discovered that the Traffic-Control Index implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly perform filter deactivation in some situations. A local attacker could possibly use this to gain elevated privileges. Please note that with the fix for this CVE, kernel support for the TCINDEX classifier has been removed. Lin Ma discovered a race condition in the io_uring subsystem in the Linux kernel, leading to a null pointer dereference vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service.

linux-oem-5.17 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-oem-5.17: Linux kernel for OEM systems

Details:

It was discovered that the Traffic-Control Index (TCINDEX) implementation
in the Linux kernel did not properly perform filter deactivation in some
situations. A local attacker could possibly use this to gain elevated
privileges. Please note that with the fix for this CVE, kernel support for
the TCINDEX classifier has been removed. (CVE-2023-1829)

Lin Ma discovered a race condition in the io_uring subsystem in the Linux
kernel, leading to a null pointer dereference vulnerability. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2023-0468)

It was discovered that the OverlayFS implementation in the Linux kernel did
not properly handle copy up operation in some conditions. A local attacker
could possibly use this to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2023-0386)

David Hildenbrand discovered that a race condition existed in the memory
manager of the Linux kernel when handling copy-on-write with shared memory
pages. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-2590)

It was discovered that the sound subsystem in the Linux kernel contained a
race condition in some situations. A local attacker could use this to cause
a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2022-3303)

Gwnaun Jung discovered that the SFB packet scheduling implementation in the
Linux kernel contained 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-2022-3586)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the EFI capsule loader
driver 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-2022-40307)

Zheng Wang and Zhuorao Yang discovered that the RealTek RTL8712U wireless
driver in the Linux kernel contained 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-2022-4095)

It was discovered that the USB core subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle nested reset events. A local attacker with physical access
could plug in a specially crafted USB device to cause a denial of service
(kernel deadlock). (CVE-2022-4662)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the Xen transport layer
implementation for the 9P file system protocol in the Linux kernel, leading
to a use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause
a denial of service (guest crash) or expose sensitive information (guest
kernel memory). (CVE-2023-1859)

Kyle Zeng discovered that the ATM VC queuing discipline implementation in
the Linux kernel contained a type confusion vulnerability in some
situations. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash). (CVE-2023-23455)

Lianhui Tang discovered that the MPLS implementation in the Linux kernel
did not properly handle certain sysctl allocation failure conditions,
leading to a double-free vulnerability. An attacker could use this to cause
a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-26545)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:
linux-image-5.17.0-1031-oem 5.17.0-1031.32
linux-image-oem-22.04 5.17.0.1031.29
linux-image-oem-22.04a 5.17.0.1031.29

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.
