Ubuntu Security Notice USN-6479-1
Posted Nov 15, 2023
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 6479-1 - Kyle Zeng discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel contained a race condition in IP set operations in certain situations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. Alex Birnberg discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly validate register length, leading to an out-of- bounds write vulnerability. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service.

linux-oem-6.5 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-6.5: Linux kernel for OEM systems

Details:

Kyle Zeng discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
contained a race condition in IP set operations in certain situations. A
local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2023-42756)

Alex Birnberg discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
did not properly validate register length, leading to an out-of- bounds
write vulnerability. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2023-4881)

It was discovered that the Quick Fair Queueing scheduler implementation in
the Linux kernel did not properly handle network packets in certain
conditions, 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-2023-4921)

Kevin Rich discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly handle removal of rules from chain bindings in certain
circumstances, leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker
could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-5197)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:
linux-image-6.5.0-1007-oem 6.5.0-1007.7
linux-image-oem-22.04d 6.5.0.1007.9

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.
