[USN-6672-1] Node.js vulnerabilities


==========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-6672-1
March 04, 2024

nodejs vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 23.10
- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in Node.js.

Software Description:
- nodejs: An open-source, cross-platform JavaScript runtime environment.

Details:

Morgan Jones discovered that Node.js incorrectly handled certain inputs that
leads to false positive errors during some cryptographic operations. If a user
or an automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted input
file, a remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a denial of
service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 23.10. (CVE-2023-23919)

It was discovered that Node.js incorrectly handled certain inputs leaded to a
untrusted search path vulnerability. If a user or an automated system were
tricked into opening a specially crafted input file, a remote attacker could
possibly use this issue to perform a privilege escalation. (CVE-2023-23920)

Matt Caswell discovered that Node.js incorrectly handled certain inputs with
specially crafted ASN.1 object identifiers or data containing them. If a user
or an automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted input
file, a remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a denial of
service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. (CVE-2023-2650)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 23.10:
libnode108 18.13.0+dfsg1-1ubuntu2.1
nodejs 18.13.0+dfsg1-1ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:
libnode72 12.22.9~dfsg-1ubuntu3.4
nodejs 12.22.9~dfsg-1ubuntu3.4

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
libnode64 10.19.0~dfsg-3ubuntu1.5
nodejs 10.19.0~dfsg-3ubuntu1.5

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

errors returned by the OpenSSL API when processing incorrect padding in
RSA PKCS#1 v1.5. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to expose
confidential or sensitive information. (CVE-2023-50782)

It was discovered that python-cryptography incorrectly handled memory
operations when processing mismatched PKCS#12 keys. A remote attacker could
possibly use this issue to cause python-cryptography to crash, leading to a
denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 23.10. (CVE-2024-26130)

Update instructions:

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

[USN-6653-4] Linux kernel (GKE) vulnerabilities


==========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-6653-4
March 04, 2024

linux-gke vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-gke: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems

Details:

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the ATM (Asynchronous
Transfer Mode) 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-2023-51780)

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)

Zhenghan Wang discovered that the generic ID allocator implementation in
the Linux kernel did not properly check for null bitmap when releasing IDs.
A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash). (CVE-2023-6915)

Robert Morris discovered that the CIFS network file system implementation
in the Linux kernel did not properly validate certain server commands
fields, leading to an out-of-bounds read vulnerability. An attacker could
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly expose
sensitive information. (CVE-2024-0565)

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)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:
linux-image-5.15.0-1051-gke 5.15.0-1051.56
linux-image-gke 5.15.0.1051.50
linux-image-gke-5.15 5.15.0.1051.50

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.
