edk2 vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 20.10
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in EDK II.

Software Description:
- edk2: UEFI firmware for virtual machines

Details:

Laszlo Ersek discovered that EDK II incorrectly handled recursion. A
remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause EDK II to consume
resources, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2021-28210)

Satoshi Tanda discovered that EDK II incorrectly handled decompressing
certain images. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause EDK II to
crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2021-28211)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 20.10:
  ovmf                            2020.05-5ubuntu0.2
  qemu-efi                        2020.05-5ubuntu0.2
  qemu-efi-aarch64                2020.05-5ubuntu0.2
  qemu-efi-arm                    2020.05-5ubuntu0.2

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
  ovmf                            0~20191122.bd85bf54-2ubuntu3.2
  qemu-efi                        0~20191122.bd85bf54-2ubuntu3.2
  qemu-efi-aarch64                0~20191122.bd85bf54-2ubuntu3.2
  qemu-efi-arm                    0~20191122.bd85bf54-2ubuntu3.2

After a standard system update you need to restart the virtual machines
that use the affected firmware to make all the necessary changes.
