USN-5915-1: Linux kernel (OEM) vulnerabilities


==========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-5915-1
March 03, 2023

linux-oem-6.1 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-oem-6.1: Linux kernel for OEM systems

Details:

It was discovered that the Upper Level Protocol (ULP) subsystem in the
Linux kernel did not properly handle sockets entering the LISTEN state in
certain protocols, 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-2023-0461)

Davide Ornaghi discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
did not properly handle VLAN headers in some situations. A local attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-0179)

Ziming Zhang discovered that the VMware Virtual GPU DRM driver in the Linux
kernel contained an out-of-bounds write vulnerability. A local attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2022-36280)

Zheng Wang discovered that the Intel i915 graphics driver in the Linux
kernel did not properly handle certain error conditions, leading to a
double-free. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of
service (system crash). (CVE-2022-3707)

Hyunwoo Kim discovered that the DVB Core driver in the Linux kernel did not
properly perform reference counting in some situations, 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-2022-41218)

It was discovered that the NFSD implementation in the Linux kernel
contained a use-after-free vulnerability. A remote attacker could possibly
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2022-4379)

It was discovered that the network queuing discipline implementation in the
Linux kernel contained a null pointer dereference in some situations. A
local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2022-47929)

José Oliveira and Rodrigo Branco discovered that the prctl syscall
implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly protect against
indirect branch prediction attacks in some situations. A local attacker
could possibly use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2023-0045)

It was discovered that the KSMBD implementation in the Linux kernel did not
properly validate buffer lengths, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow.
A remote attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash). (CVE-2023-0210)

It was discovered that a use-after-free vulnerability existed in the
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) subsystem. A local attacker could
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2023-0266)

Kyle Zeng discovered that the class-based queuing discipline implementation
in the Linux kernel contained a type confusion vulnerability in some
situations. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash). (CVE-2023-23454)

Kyle Zeng discovered that the ATM VC queuing discipline implementation in
the Linux kernel contained a type confusion vulnerability in some
situations. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash). (CVE-2023-23455)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:
linux-image-6.1.0-1007-oem 6.1.0-1007.7
linux-image-oem-22.04c 6.1.0.1007.7

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.
