Linux kernel vulnerabilities

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

-   Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
-   Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
-   Ubuntu 16.04 ESM
-   Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
-   Ubuntu 14.04 ESM

Summary

Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.

Software Description

-   linux - Linux kernel
-   linux-aws - Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
-   linux-azure - Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
-   linux-gcp - Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
-   linux-gke - Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
-   linux-gkeop - Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
-   linux-ibm - Linux kernel for IBM cloud systems
-   linux-oem - Linux kernel for OEM systems

Details

Aaron Adams discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
did not properly handle the removal of stateful expressions 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-2022-1966)

Ziming Zhang discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
did not properly validate sets with multiple ranged fields. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-1972)
