Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3697-1
July 02, 2018

linux, linux-raspi2 vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- - Ubuntu 17.10

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- - linux: Linux kernel
- - linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2

Details:

It was discovered that a null pointer dereference vulnerability existed in
the DCCP protocol implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2018-1130)

Jann Horn discovered that the 32 bit adjtimex() syscall implementation for
64 bit Linux kernels did not properly initialize memory returned to user
space in some situations. A local attacker could use this to expose
sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2018-11508)

Wang Qize discovered that an information disclosure vulnerability existed
in the SMBus driver for ACPI Embedded Controllers in the Linux kernel. A
local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel
pointer addresses). (CVE-2018-5750)

It was discovered that the SCTP Protocol implementation in the Linux kernel
did not properly validate userspace provided payload lengths in some
situations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash). (CVE-2018-5803)

It was discovered that an integer overflow error existed in the futex
implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2018-6927)

It was discovered that an information leak vulnerability existed in the
floppy driver in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to
expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2018-7755)

It was discovered that a memory leak existed in the SAS driver subsystem of
the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service (memory exhaustion). (CVE-2018-7757)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 17.10:
  linux-image-4.13.0-1023-raspi2  4.13.0-1023.24
  linux-image-4.13.0-46-generic   4.13.0-46.51
  linux-image-4.13.0-46-generic-lpae  4.13.0-46.51
  linux-image-4.13.0-46-lowlatency  4.13.0-46.51
  linux-image-generic             4.13.0.46.49
  linux-image-generic-lpae        4.13.0.46.49
  linux-image-lowlatency          4.13.0.46.49
  linux-image-raspi2              4.13.0.1023.21

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.
