Ubuntu Security Notice USN-6386-1

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-6386-1
Posted Sep 20, 2023
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 6386-1 - Jana Hofmann, Emanuele Vannacci, Cedric Fournet, Boris Kopf, and Oleksii Oleksenko discovered that some AMD processors could leak stale data from division operations in certain situations. A local attacker could possibly use this to expose sensitive information. It was discovered that the bluetooth subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly handle L2CAP socket release, leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code.

- linux-gke: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-gkeop: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-ibm: Linux kernel for IBM cloud systems
- linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-lowlatency: Linux low latency kernel
- linux-nvidia: Linux kernel for NVIDIA systems
- linux-aws-5.15: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-azure-5.15: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure cloud systems
- linux-azure-fde-5.15: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure CVM cloud systems
- linux-gcp-5.15: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-gkeop-5.15: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems

Details:

Jana Hofmann, Emanuele Vannacci, Cedric Fournet, Boris Kopf, and Oleksii
Oleksenko discovered that some AMD processors could leak stale data from
division operations in certain situations. A local attacker could possibly
use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2023-20588)

It was discovered that the bluetooth subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle L2CAP socket release, 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-2023-40283)

It was discovered that some network classifier implementations in the Linux
kernel contained use-after-free vulnerabilities. A local attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-4128)

Lonial Con discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
contained a memory leak when handling certain element flush operations. A
local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel
memory). (CVE-2023-4569)

Update instructions:

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

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.
