[USN-5442-2] Linux kernel vulnerabilities


========================================================================== Ubuntu Security Notice USN-5442-2 June 01, 2022
linux-gcp-5.4, linux-gkeop, linux-gkeop-5.4, linux-ibm-5.4, linux-oracle, linux-oracle-5.4, linux-raspi, linux-raspi-5.4 vulnerabilities ==========================================================================
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
– Ubuntu 20.04 LTS – Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
Summary:
Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.
Software Description: – linux-gkeop: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems – linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems – linux-raspi: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi systems – linux-gcp-5.4: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems – linux-gkeop-5.4: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems – linux-ibm-5.4: Linux kernel for IBM cloud systems – linux-oracle-5.4: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems – linux-raspi-5.4: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi systems
Details:
Kyle Zeng discovered that the Network Queuing and Scheduling subsystem of the Linux kernel did not properly perform reference counting in some situations, leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-29581)
Bing-Jhong Billy Jheng discovered that the io_uring subsystem in the Linux kernel contained in integer overflow. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-1116)
Jann Horn discovered that the Linux kernel did not properly enforce seccomp restrictions in some situations. A local attacker could use this to bypass intended seccomp sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2022-30594)
Update instructions:
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:
Ubuntu 20.04 LTS: linux-image-5.4.0-1043-gkeop 5.4.0-1043.44 linux-image-5.4.0-1062-raspi 5.4.0-1062.70 linux-image-5.4.0-1073-oracle 5.4.0-1073.79 linux-image-gkeop 5.4.0.1043.46 linux-image-gkeop-5.4 5.4.0.1043.46 linux-image-oracle-lts-20.04 5.4.0.1073.73 linux-image-raspi 5.4.0.1062.96 linux-image-raspi2 5.4.0.1062.96
Ubuntu 18.04 LTS: linux-image-5.4.0-1023-ibm 5.4.0-1023.25~18.04.1 linux-image-5.4.0-1043-gkeop 5.4.0-1043.44~18.04.1 linux-image-5.4.0-1062-raspi 5.4.0-1062.70~18.04.1 linux-image-5.4.0-1073-oracle 5.4.0-1073.79~18.04.1 linux-image-5.4.0-1075-gcp 5.4.0-1075.80~18.04.1 linux-image-gcp 5.4.0.1075.58 linux-image-gkeop-5.4 5.4.0.1043.44~18.04.42 linux-image-ibm 5.4.0.1023.39 linux-image-oracle 5.4.0.1073.79~18.04.52 linux-image-raspi-hwe-18.04 5.4.0.1062.63
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.
