Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4727-1
February 10, 2021

linux, linux-aws, linux-azure, linux-gcp, linux-hwe-5.8, linux-kvm,
linux-oem-5.6, linux-oracle, linux-raspi vulnerability
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 20.10
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Summary:

The system could be made to crash or run programs as an administrator.

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-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-raspi: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi (V8) systems
- linux-hwe-5.8: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-oem-5.6: Linux kernel for OEM systems

Details:

Alexander Popov discovered that multiple race conditions existed in the
AF_VSOCK implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions:

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

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.
