Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 6705-1 - It was discovered that the DesignWare USB3 for Qualcomm SoCs driver in the Linux kernel did not properly handle certain error conditions during device registration. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service. It was discovered that the NVIDIA Tegra XUSB pad controller driver in the Linux kernel did not properly handle return values in certain error conditions. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service.

linux-aws, linux-aws-5.15 vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-aws: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-aws-5.15: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems

Details:

It was discovered that the DesignWare USB3 for Qualcomm SoCs driver in the
Linux kernel did not properly handle certain error conditions during device
registration. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of
service (system crash). (CVE-2023-22995)

It was discovered that the NVIDIA Tegra XUSB pad controller driver in the
Linux kernel did not properly handle return values in certain error
conditions. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash). (CVE-2023-23000)

Quentin Minster discovered that the KSMBD implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly handle session setup requests. A remote attacker
could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (memory exhaustion).
(CVE-2023-32247)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the Cypress touchscreen
driver in the Linux kernel 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-2023-4134)

黄思聪 discovered that the NFC Controller Interface (NCI) implementation in
the Linux kernel did not properly handle certain memory allocation failure
conditions, leading to a null pointer dereference vulnerability. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2023-46343)

It was discovered that the io_uring subsystem in the Linux kernel contained
a race condition, leading to a null pointer dereference vulnerability. A
local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2023-46862)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the Bluetooth subsystem
of 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-2023-51779)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the Rose X.25 protocol
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-2023-51782)

Alon Zahavi discovered that the NVMe-oF/TCP subsystem of the Linux kernel
did not properly handle connect command payloads in certain situations,
leading to an out-of-bounds read vulnerability. A remote attacker could use
this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2023-6121)

It was discovered that the VirtIO subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly initialize memory in some situations. A local attacker could use
this to possibly expose sensitive information (kernel memory).
(CVE-2024-0340)

Dan Carpenter discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
did not store data in properly sized memory locations. A local user could
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2024-0607)

Lonial Con discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly handle element deactivation in certain cases, 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-2024-1085)

Notselwyn discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly handle verdict parameters in certain cases, 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-2024-1086)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the SCSI Emulex
LightPulse Fibre Channel driver in the Linux kernel when unregistering FCF
and re-scanning an HBA FCF table, leading to a null pointer dereference
vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash). (CVE-2024-24855)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:
linux-image-5.15.0-1056-aws 5.15.0-1056.61
linux-image-aws-lts-22.04 5.15.0.1056.55

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
linux-image-5.15.0-1056-aws 5.15.0-1056.61~20.04.1
linux-image-aws 5.15.0.1056.61~20.04.43

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.
