Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4711-1
January 28, 2021

linux-aws, linux-kvm, linux-oracle, linux-raspi2, linux-snapdragon
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-aws: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi (V8) systems
- linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Qualcomm Snapdragon processors

Details:

It was discovered that the LIO SCSI target implementation in the Linux
kernel performed insufficient identifier checking in certain XCOPY
requests. An attacker with access to at least one LUN in a multiple
backstore environment could use this to expose sensitive information or
modify data. (CVE-2020-28374)

Kiyin (尹亮) discovered that the perf subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly deallocate memory in some situations. A privileged attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (kernel memory exhaustion).
(CVE-2020-25704)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
  linux-image-4.15.0-1064-oracle  4.15.0-1064.71
  linux-image-4.15.0-1078-raspi2  4.15.0-1078.83
  linux-image-4.15.0-1084-kvm     4.15.0-1084.86
  linux-image-4.15.0-1093-aws     4.15.0-1093.99
  linux-image-4.15.0-1095-snapdragon  4.15.0-1095.104
  linux-image-aws-lts-18.04       4.15.0.1093.96
  linux-image-kvm                 4.15.0.1084.80
  linux-image-oracle-lts-18.04    4.15.0.1064.74
  linux-image-raspi2              4.15.0.1078.75
  linux-image-snapdragon          4.15.0.1095.98

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.
