USN-6109-1: Linux kernel (Raspberry Pi) vulnerabilities


==========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-6109-1
May 25, 2023

linux-raspi, linux-raspi-5.4 vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-raspi: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi systems
- linux-raspi-5.4: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi systems

Details:

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)

Jordy Zomer and Alexandra Sandulescu discovered that the Linux kernel did
not properly implement speculative execution barriers in usercopy functions
in certain situations. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive
information (kernel memory). (CVE-2023-0459)

It was discovered that the TLS subsystem in the Linux kernel contained a
type confusion vulnerability in some situations. A local attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly expose
sensitive information. (CVE-2023-1075)

It was discovered that the Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS) protocol
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-2023-1078)

Xingyuan Mo discovered that the x86 KVM implementation in the Linux kernel
did not properly initialize some data structures. A local attacker could
use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2023-1513)

It was discovered that a use-after-free vulnerability existed in the iSCSI
TCP implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could possibly use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2023-2162)

It was discovered that the NET/ROM protocol implementation in the Linux
kernel contained a race condition 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-2023-32269)

Duoming Zhou discovered that a race condition existed in the infrared
receiver/transceiver driver in the Linux kernel, leading to a use-after-
free vulnerability. A privileged attacker could use this to cause a denial
of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2023-1118)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
linux-image-5.4.0-1085-raspi 5.4.0-1085.96
linux-image-raspi 5.4.0.1085.115
linux-image-raspi2 5.4.0.1085.115

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
linux-image-5.4.0-1085-raspi 5.4.0-1085.96~18.04.1
linux-image-raspi-hwe-18.04 5.4.0.1085.82

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.
