Ubuntu Security Notice USN-5086-1
September 22, 2021

linux, linux-hwe, linux-hwe-5.11, linux-hwe-5.4 vulnerability
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 21.04
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 ESM

Summary:

IBM s390x systems could be made to crash or run programs as an
administrator.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel
- linux-hwe-5.11: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-hwe-5.4: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-hwe: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel

Details:

Johan Almbladh discovered that the eBPF JIT implementation for IBM
s390x systems in the Linux kernel miscompiled operations in some
situations, allowing circumvention of the BPF verifier. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash)
or possibly 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.
