USN-5832-1: Linux kernel (Raspberry Pi) vulnerabilities


==========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-5832-1
January 30, 2023

linux-raspi vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 22.10

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-raspi: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi systems

Details:

Kyle Zeng discovered that the sysctl implementation in the Linux kernel
contained a stack-based buffer overflow. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2022-4378)

Tamás Koczka discovered that the Bluetooth L2CAP handshake implementation
in the Linux kernel contained multiple use-after-free vulnerabilities. A
physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-42896)

It was discovered that the Xen netback driver in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle packets structured in certain ways. An attacker in a guest
VM could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (host NIC
availability). (CVE-2022-3643)

It was discovered that an integer overflow vulnerability existed in the
Bluetooth subsystem in the Linux kernel. A physically proximate attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2022-45934)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 22.10:
linux-image-5.19.0-1012-raspi 5.19.0-1012.19
linux-image-5.19.0-1012-raspi-nolpae 5.19.0-1012.19
linux-image-raspi 5.19.0.1012.11
linux-image-raspi-nolpae 5.19.0.1012.11

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.
