Ubuntu Security Notice 6347-1 - William Zhao discovered that the Traffic Control subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly handle network packet retransmission in certain situations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. It was discovered that the NTFS file system implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly check buffer indexes in certain situations, leading to an out-of-bounds read vulnerability. A local attacker could possibly use this to expose sensitive information.

linux-azure-fde-5.15 vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-azure-fde-5.15: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure CVM cloud systems

Details:

William Zhao discovered that the Traffic Control (TC) subsystem in the
Linux kernel did not properly handle network packet retransmission in
certain situations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service (kernel deadlock). (CVE-2022-4269)

It was discovered that the NTFS file system implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly check buffer indexes in certain situations, leading
to an out-of-bounds read vulnerability. A local attacker could possibly use
this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2022-48502)

Seth Jenkins discovered that the Linux kernel did not properly perform
address randomization for a per-cpu memory management structure. A local
attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory) or
in conjunction with another kernel vulnerability. (CVE-2023-0597)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the btrfs file system
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 expose sensitive information. (CVE-2023-1611)

It was discovered that the APM X-Gene SoC hardware monitoring driver in the
Linux kernel contained a race condition, leading to a use-after-free
vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or expose sensitive information (kernel memory).
(CVE-2023-1855)

It was discovered that the ST NCI NFC driver did not properly handle device
removal events. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2023-1990)

Ruihan Li discovered that the bluetooth subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly perform permissions checks when handling HCI sockets. A
physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(bluetooth communication). (CVE-2023-2002)

It was discovered that the XFS file system implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly perform metadata validation when mounting certain
images. An attacker could use this to specially craft a file system image
that, when mounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2023-2124)

Juan Jose Lopez Jaimez, Meador Inge, Simon Scannell, and Nenad Stojanovski
discovered that the BPF verifier in the Linux kernel did not properly mark
registers for precision tracking in certain situations, leading to an out-
of-bounds access vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2023-2163)

It was discovered that the SLIMpro I2C device driver in the Linux kernel
did not properly validate user-supplied data in some situations, leading to
an out-of-bounds write vulnerability. A privileged attacker could use this
to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2023-2194)

It was discovered that the perf subsystem in the Linux kernel contained a
use-after-free vulnerability. A privileged local attacker could possibly
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-2235)

Zheng Zhang discovered that the device-mapper implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly handle locking during table_clear() operations. A
local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (kernel
deadlock). (CVE-2023-2269)

It was discovered that the ARM Mali Display Processor driver implementation
in the Linux kernel did not properly handle certain error conditions. A
local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash). (CVE-2023-23004)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the TLS subsystem in the
Linux kernel, leading to a use-after-free or a null pointer dereference
vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-28466)

It was discovered that the DA9150 charger driver in the Linux kernel did
not properly handle device removal, leading to a user-after free
vulnerability. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2023-30772)

It was discovered that the Ricoh R5C592 MemoryStick card reader driver in
the Linux kernel contained a race condition during module unload, 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-2023-3141)

Quentin Minster discovered that the KSMBD implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly validate pointers in some situations, leading to a
null pointer dereference vulnerability. A remote attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2023-32248)

It was discovered that the kernel->user space relay implementation in the
Linux kernel did not properly perform certain buffer calculations, leading
to an out-of-bounds read vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service (system crash) or expose sensitive information
(kernel memory). (CVE-2023-3268)

It was discovered that the Qualcomm EMAC ethernet driver in the Linux
kernel did not properly handle device removal, leading to a user-after free
vulnerability. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2023-33203)

It was discovered that the BQ24190 charger driver in the Linux kernel did
not properly handle device removal, leading to a user-after free
vulnerability. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2023-33288)

It was discovered that the video4linux driver for Philips based TV cards in
the Linux kernel contained a race condition during device removal, leading
to a use-after-free vulnerability. A physically proximate attacker could
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-35823)

It was discovered that the SDMC DM1105 PCI device driver in the Linux
kernel contained a race condition during device removal, leading to a use-
after-free vulnerability. A physically proximate attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2023-35824)

It was discovered that the Renesas USB controller driver in the Linux
kernel contained a race condition during device removal, leading to a use-
after-free vulnerability. A privileged attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2023-35828)

It was discovered that the Rockchip Video Decoder IP driver in the Linux
kernel contained a race condition during device removal, leading to a use-
after-free vulnerability. A privileged attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2023-35829)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
linux-image-5.15.0-1043-azure-fde 5.15.0-1043.50~20.04.1.1
linux-image-azure-fde 5.15.0.1043.50~20.04.1.22

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.
