USN-3930-1: Linux kernel vulnerabilities

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

  o Ubuntu 18.10

Summary

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description

  o linux - Linux kernel
  o linux-aws - Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
  o linux-azure - Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
  o linux-gcp - Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
  o linux-kvm - Linux kernel for cloud environments
  o linux-raspi2 - Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2

Details

Mathias Payer and Hui Peng discovered a use-after-free vulnerability in the
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) subsystem. A physically proximate
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2018-19824)

Shlomi Oberman, Yuli Shapiro, and Ran Menscher discovered an information leak
in the Bluetooth implementation of the Linux kernel. An attacker within
Bluetooth range could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory).
(CVE-2019-3459, CVE-2019-3460)

Jann Horn discovered that the KVM implementation in the Linux kernel contained
a use-after-free vulnerability. An attacker in a guest VM with access to /dev/
kvm could use this to cause a denial of service (guest VM crash).
(CVE-2019-6974)

Jim Mattson and Felix Wilhelm discovered a use-after-free vulnerability in the
KVM subsystem of the Linux kernel, when using nested virtual machines. A local
attacker in a guest VM could use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code in the host system. (CVE-2019-7221)

Felix Wilhelm discovered that an information leak vulnerability existed in the
KVM subsystem of the Linux kernel, when nested virtualization is used. A local
attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (host system memory to
a guest VM). (CVE-2019-7222)

Jann Horn discovered that the eBPF implementation in the Linux kernel was
insufficiently hardened against Spectre V1 attacks. A local attacker could use
this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2019-7308)

It was discovered that a use-after-free vulnerability existed in the user-
space API for crypto (af_alg) implementation in the Linux kernel. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-8912)

Jakub Jirasek discovered a use-after-free vulnerability in the SCTP
implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2019-8956)

It was discovered that the Linux kernel did not properly deallocate memory when
handling certain errors while reading files. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service (excessive memory consumption). (CVE-2019-8980)

It was discovered that a use-after-free vulnerability existed in the IPMI
implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker with access to the IPMI
character device files could use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash). (CVE-2019-9003)

Jann Horn discovered that the SNMP NAT implementation in the Linux kernel
performed insufficient ASN.1 length checks. An attacker could use this to cause
a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2019-9162)

Jann Horn discovered that the mmap implementation in the Linux kernel did not
properly check for the mmap minimum address in some situations. A local
attacker could use this to assist exploiting a kernel NULL pointer dereference
vulnerability. (CVE-2019-9213)

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 18.10
    linux-image-4.18.0-1008-gcp - 4.18.0-1008.9
    linux-image-4.18.0-1009-kvm - 4.18.0-1009.9
    linux-image-4.18.0-1011-raspi2 - 4.18.0-1011.13
    linux-image-4.18.0-1012-aws - 4.18.0-1012.14
    linux-image-4.18.0-1014-azure - 4.18.0-1014.14
    linux-image-4.18.0-17-generic - 4.18.0-17.18
    linux-image-4.18.0-17-generic-lpae - 4.18.0-17.18
    linux-image-4.18.0-17-lowlatency - 4.18.0-17.18
    linux-image-4.18.0-17-snapdragon - 4.18.0-17.18
    linux-image-aws - 4.18.0.1012.12
    linux-image-azure - 4.18.0.1014.15
    linux-image-gcp - 4.18.0.1008.8
    linux-image-generic - 4.18.0.17.18
    linux-image-generic-lpae - 4.18.0.17.18
    linux-image-gke - 4.18.0.1008.8
    linux-image-kvm - 4.18.0.1009.9
    linux-image-lowlatency - 4.18.0.17.18
    linux-image-raspi2 - 4.18.0.1011.8
    linux-image-snapdragon - 4.18.0.17.18
    linux-image-virtual - 4.18.0.17.18

To update your system, please follow these instructions: https://
wiki.ubuntu.com/Security/Upgrades .

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.
