[USN-6250-1] Linux kernel vulnerabilities


==========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-6250-1
July 25, 2023

linux, linux-aws, linux-azure, linux-gcp, linux-ibm, linux-kvm,
linux-lowlatency, linux-oracle, linux-raspi vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 23.04

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel
- linux-aws: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-azure: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
- linux-gcp: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-ibm: Linux kernel for IBM cloud systems
- linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-lowlatency: Linux low latency kernel
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-raspi: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi systems

Details:

Stonejiajia, Shir Tamari and Sagi Tzadik discovered that the OverlayFS
implementation in the Ubuntu Linux kernel did not properly perform
permission checks in certain situations. A local attacker could possibly
use this to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2023-2640)

It was discovered that the IP-VLAN network driver for the Linux kernel did
not properly initialize memory in some situations, leading to an out-of-
bounds write vulnerability. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-3090)

Mingi Cho discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly validate the status of a nft chain while performing a lookup
by id, leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. An attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-31248)

Shir Tamari and Sagi Tzadik discovered that the OverlayFS implementation in
the Ubuntu Linux kernel did not properly perform permission checks in
certain situations. A local attacker could possibly use this to gain
elevated privileges. (CVE-2023-32629)

Ruihan Li discovered that the memory management subsystem in the Linux
kernel contained a race condition when accessing VMAs in certain
conditions, leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker
could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-3269)

Querijn Voet discovered that a race condition existed in the io_uring
subsystem in 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-2023-3389)

It was discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle some error conditions, 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-2023-3390)

Tanguy Dubroca discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
did not properly handle certain pointer data type, leading to an out-of-
bounds write vulnerability. A privileged attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2023-35001)

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.
