Samuel Weiser discovered that OpenSSL incorrectly handled ECDSA signing. =
An
attacker could possibly use this issue to perform a timing side-channel
attack and recover private ECDSA keys. This issue only affected Ubuntu
18.04 LTS and Ubuntu 18.10. (CVE-2018-0735)

Billy Bob Brumley, Cesar Pereida Garcia, Sohaib ul Hassan, Nicola Tuveri,=

and Alejandro Cabrera Aldaya discovered that Simultaneous Multithreading
(SMT) architectures are vulnerable to side-channel leakage. This issue is=

known as “PortSmash”. An attacker could possibly use this issue to perfor=
m
a timing side-channel attack and recover private keys. (CVE-2018-5407)
