Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3641-1
May 08, 2018

linux, linux-aws, linux-azure, linux-euclid, linux-gcp, linux-hwe,
linux-kvm, linux-lts-xenial, linux-oem, linux-raspi2, and
linux-snapdragon vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

– Ubuntu 17.10
– Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
– Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
– linux: Linux kernel
– linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2
– linux-aws: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
– linux-azure: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
– linux-euclid: Linux kernel for Intel Euclid systems
– linux-gcp: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
– linux-hwe: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
– linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
– linux-oem: Linux kernel for OEM processors
– linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Snapdragon processors
– linux-lts-xenial: Linux hardware enablement kernel from Xenial for Trusty

Details:

Nick Peterson discovered that the Linux kernel did not
properly handle debug exceptions following a MOV/POP to SS
instruction. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial
of service (system crash). This issue only affected the amd64
architecture. (CVE-2018-8897)

Andy Lutomirski discovered that the KVM subsystem of the Linux kernel
did not properly emulate the ICEBP instruction following a MOV/POP
to SS instruction. A local attacker in a KVM virtual machine could
use this to cause a denial of service (guest VM crash) or possibly
escalate privileges inside of the virtual machine. This issue only
affected the i386 and amd64 architectures. (CVE-2018-1087)

Andy Lutomirski discovered that the Linux kernel did not properly
perform error handling on virtualized debug registers. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash)
or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-1000199)

Update instructions:

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

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.
