Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3901-1
March 05, 2019

linux, linux-aws, linux-gcp, linux-kvm, linux-oem, linux-oracle, linux-raspi2 vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

– Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

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-gcp: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
– linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
– linux-oem: Linux kernel for OEM processors
– linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
– linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2

Details:

Jann Horn discovered that the userfaultd implementation in the Linux kernel
did not properly restrict access to certain ioctls. A local attacker could
use this possibly to modify files. (CVE-2018-18397)

It was discovered that the crypto subsystem of the Linux kernel leaked
uninitialized memory to user space in some situations. A local attacker
could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory).
(CVE-2018-19854)

Jann Horn discovered a race condition in the fork() system call in
the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to gain access to
services that cache authorizations. (CVE-2019-6133)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
linux-image-4.15.0-1009-oracle 4.15.0-1009.11
linux-image-4.15.0-1028-gcp 4.15.0-1028.29
linux-image-4.15.0-1030-kvm 4.15.0-1030.30
linux-image-4.15.0-1032-raspi2 4.15.0-1032.34
linux-image-4.15.0-1033-aws 4.15.0-1033.35
linux-image-4.15.0-1034-oem 4.15.0-1034.39
linux-image-4.15.0-46-generic 4.15.0-46.49
linux-image-4.15.0-46-generic-lpae 4.15.0-46.49
linux-image-4.15.0-46-lowlatency 4.15.0-46.49
linux-image-4.15.0-46-snapdragon 4.15.0-46.49
linux-image-aws 4.15.0.1033.32
linux-image-gcp 4.15.0.1028.30
linux-image-generic 4.15.0.46.48
linux-image-generic-lpae 4.15.0.46.48
linux-image-gke 4.15.0.1028.30
linux-image-kvm 4.15.0.1030.30
linux-image-lowlatency 4.15.0.46.48
linux-image-oem 4.15.0.1034.39
linux-image-oracle 4.15.0.1009.12
linux-image-raspi2 4.15.0.1032.30
linux-image-snapdragon 4.15.0.46.48

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.
