USN-3674-1: Linux kernel vulnerabilities

=========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3674-1
June 11, 2018

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

- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel

Details:

It was discovered that the netfilter subsystem of the Linux kernel did not
properly validate ebtables offsets. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2018-1068)

It was discovered that a NULL pointer dereference existed in the RDS
(Reliable Datagram Sockets) protocol implementation in the Linux kernel. A
local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2018-7492)

Eyal Itkin discovered that the USB displaylink video adapter driver in the
Linux kernel did not properly validate mmap offsets sent from userspace. A
local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel
memory) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-8781)

Xingyuan Lin discovered that a out-of-bounds read existed in the USB Video
Class (UVC) driver of the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to
expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2017-0627)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
linux-image-3.13.0-151-generic 3.13.0-151.201
linux-image-3.13.0-151-generic-lpae 3.13.0-151.201

linux-image-powerpc-e500mc 3.13.0.151.161
linux-image-powerpc-smp 3.13.0.151.161
linux-image-powerpc64-emb 3.13.0.151.161
linux-image-powerpc64-smp 3.13.0.151.161

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.

USN-3675-1: GnuPG vulnerabilities


=========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3675-1
June 11, 2018

gnupg, gnupg2 vulnerabilities
=========================================================================
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 17.10
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in GnuPG.

Software Description:
- gnupg2: GNU privacy guard - a free PGP replacement
- gnupg: GNU privacy guard - a free PGP replacement

Details:

Marcus Brinkmann discovered that during decryption or verification,
GnuPG did not properly filter out terminal sequences when reporting the
original filename. An attacker could use this to specially craft a file
that would cause an application parsing GnuPG output to incorrectly
interpret the status of the cryptographic operation reported by GnuPG.
(CVE-2018-12020)

Lance Vick discovered that GnuPG did not enforce configurations where
key certification required an offline master Certify key. An attacker
with access to a signing subkey could generate certifications that
appeared to be valid. This issue only affected Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
(CVE-2018-9234)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
gnupg 2.2.4-1ubuntu1.1
gpg 2.2.4-1ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 17.10:
gnupg 2.1.15-1ubuntu8.1

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
gnupg 1.4.20-1ubuntu3.2

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
gnupg 1.4.16-1ubuntu2.5

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
