==========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3819-1
November 14, 2018

linux, linux-aws, linux-gcp, linux-kvm, linux-raspi2 vulnerability
==========================================================================

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

– Ubuntu 18.10

Summary:

The system could be made to crash or run programs as an administrator.

Software Description:
– linux: Linux kernel
– linux-aws: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
– linux-gcp: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
– linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
– linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2

Details:

Felix Wilhelm discovered that the Xen netback driver in the Linux kernel
did not properly perform input validation in some situations. An attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 18.10:
linux-image-4.18.0-1003-gcp 4.18.0-1003.4
linux-image-4.18.0-1004-aws 4.18.0-1004.5
linux-image-4.18.0-1004-kvm 4.18.0-1004.4
linux-image-4.18.0-1006-raspi2 4.18.0-1006.8
linux-image-4.18.0-11-generic 4.18.0-11.12
linux-image-4.18.0-11-generic-lpae 4.18.0-11.12
linux-image-4.18.0-11-lowlatency 4.18.0-11.12
linux-image-4.18.0-11-snapdragon 4.18.0-11.12
linux-image-aws 4.18.0.1004.4
linux-image-gcp 4.18.0.1003.3
linux-image-generic 4.18.0.11.12
linux-image-generic-lpae 4.18.0.11.12
linux-image-gke 4.18.0.1003.3
linux-image-kvm 4.18.0.1004.4
linux-image-lowlatency 4.18.0.11.12
linux-image-raspi2 4.18.0.1006.3
linux-image-snapdragon 4.18.0.11.12

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.
