July 20, 2021

linux, linux-aws, linux-aws-5.8, linux-azure, linux-azure-5.8, linux-gcp,
linux-gcp-5.8, linux-hwe-5.8, linux-kvm, linux-oracle, linux-oracle-5.8,
linux-raspi 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 the Linux 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-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-raspi: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi (V8) systems
- linux-aws-5.8: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-azure-5.8: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure cloud systems
- linux-gcp-5.8: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-hwe-5.8: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-oracle-5.8: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems

Details:

It was discovered that the virtual file system implementation in the Linux
kernel contained an unsigned to signed integer conversion error. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-33909)

Or Cohen and Nadav Markus discovered a use-after-free vulnerability in the
nfc implementation in the Linux kernel. A privileged local attacker could
use this issue to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-23134)

It was discovered that a race condition in the kernel Bluetooth subsystem
could lead to use-after-free of slab objects. An attacker could use this
issue to possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-32399)

It was discovered that a use-after-free existed in the Bluetooth HCI driver
of the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-33034)

It was discovered that an out-of-bounds (OOB) memory access flaw existed in
the f2fs module of the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this issue
to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2021-3506)

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.
