Kernel Live Patch Security Notice LSN-0102-1

Kernel Live Patch Security Notice LSN-0102-1
Posted Apr 9, 2024
Authored by Benjamin M. Romer

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the io_uring subsystem 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. 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). Various other issues were also addressed.

Linux kernel vulnerabilities

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

- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 ESM
- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 ESM

Summary

Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.

Software Description

- linux - Linux kernel
- linux-aws - Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-azure - Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
- linux-gcp - Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- 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

Details

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the io_uring
subsystem 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-2023-1872)

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)

It was discovered that the TLS subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly perform cryptographic operations in some situations, leading to
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-2023-6176)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the AppleTalk
networking 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-2023-51781)

Jann Horn discovered that the TLS subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle spliced messages, leading to an out-of-bounds write
vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2024-0646)

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)

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your kernel livepatch to the
following versions:

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
aws - 102.1
azure - 102.1
gcp - 102.1
generic - 102.1
gke - 102.1
gkeop - 102.1
ibm - 102.1
lowlatency - 102.1

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
aws - 102.1
azure - 102.1
gcp - 102.1
generic - 102.1
lowlatency - 102.1

Ubuntu 16.04 ESM
aws - 102.1
azure - 102.1
gcp - 102.1
generic - 102.1
lowlatency - 102.1

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
aws - 102.1
azure - 102.1
gcp - 102.1
generic - 102.1
gke - 102.1
ibm - 102.1
lowlatency - 102.1

Ubuntu 14.04 ESM
generic - 102.1
lowlatency - 102.1

Support Information

Livepatches for supported LTS kernels will receive upgrades for a period
of up to 13 months after the build date of the kernel.

Livepatches for supported HWE kernels which are not based on an LTS
kernel version will receive upgrades for a period of up to 9 months
after the build date of the kernel, or until the end of support for that
kernel’s non-LTS distro release version, whichever is sooner.
