linux-gcp, linux-gcp-5.13, linux-hwe-5.13, linux-kvm, linux-oracle,
linux-oracle-5.13, linux-raspi vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 21.10
- 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 systems
- linux-aws-5.13: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-azure-5.13: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure cloud systems
- linux-gcp-5.13: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-hwe-5.13: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-oracle-5.13: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems

Details:

David Bouman discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
did not properly validate passed user register indices. A local attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2022-1015)

Brendan Dolan-Gavitt discovered that the Marvell WiFi-Ex USB device driver
in the Linux kernel did not properly handle some error conditions. A
physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash). (CVE-2021-43976)

Wenqing Liu discovered that the f2fs file system implementation in the
Linux kernel did not properly validate inode types while performing garbage
collection. An attacker could use this to construct a malicious f2fs image
that, when mounted and operated on, could cause a denial of service (system
crash). (CVE-2021-44879)

It was discovered that the UDF file system implementation in the Linux
kernel could attempt to dereference a null pointer in some situations. An
attacker could use this to construct a malicious UDF image that, when
mounted and operated on, could cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2022-0617)

David Bouman discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
did not initialize memory in some situations. A local attacker could use
this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2022-1016)

Lyu Tao discovered that the NFS implementation in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle requests to open a directory on a regular file. A local
attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory).
(CVE-2022-24448)

It was discovered that the VirtIO Bluetooth driver in the Linux kernel did
not properly deallocate memory in some error conditions. A local attacker
could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (memory exhaustion).
(CVE-2022-26878)

It was discovered that the YAM AX.25 device driver in the Linux kernel did
not properly deallocate memory in some error conditions. A local privileged
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (kernel memory
exhaustion). (CVE-2022-24959)

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.
