Ubuntu Security Notice USN-5493-1
June 27, 2022

linux, linux-hwe vulnerability
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 21.10
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 ESM

Summary:

The system could be made to crash under certain conditions.

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

Details:

It was discovered that the 8 Devices USB2CAN interface implementation in
the Linux kernel did not properly handle certain error conditions, leading
to a double-free. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash).

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 21.10:
  linux-image-5.13.0-52-generic   5.13.0-52.59
  linux-image-5.13.0-52-generic-64k  5.13.0-52.59
  linux-image-5.13.0-52-generic-lpae  5.13.0-52.59
  linux-image-5.13.0-52-lowlatency  5.13.0-52.59
  linux-image-generic             5.13.0.52.58
  linux-image-generic-64k         5.13.0.52.58
  linux-image-generic-lpae        5.13.0.52.58
  linux-image-lowlatency          5.13.0.52.58
  linux-image-oem-20.04           5.13.0.52.58
  linux-image-virtual             5.13.0.52.58

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
  linux-image-5.4.0-121-generic   5.4.0-121.137
  linux-image-5.4.0-121-generic-lpae  5.4.0-121.137
  linux-image-5.4.0-121-lowlatency  5.4.0-121.137
  linux-image-generic             5.4.0.121.122
  linux-image-generic-lpae        5.4.0.121.122
  linux-image-lowlatency          5.4.0.121.122
  linux-image-oem                 5.4.0.121.122
  linux-image-oem-osp1            5.4.0.121.122
  linux-image-virtual             5.4.0.121.122

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
  linux-image-4.15.0-188-generic  4.15.0-188.199
  linux-image-4.15.0-188-generic-lpae  4.15.0-188.199
  linux-image-4.15.0-188-lowlatency  4.15.0-188.199
  linux-image-generic             4.15.0.188.173
  linux-image-generic-lpae        4.15.0.188.173
  linux-image-lowlatency          4.15.0.188.173
  linux-image-virtual             4.15.0.188.173

Ubuntu 16.04 ESM:
  linux-image-4.15.0-188-generic  4.15.0-188.199~16.04.1
  linux-image-4.15.0-188-lowlatency  4.15.0-188.199~16.04.1
  linux-image-generic-hwe-16.04   4.15.0.188.175
  linux-image-lowlatency-hwe-16.04  4.15.0.188.175
  linux-image-oem                 4.15.0.188.175
  linux-image-virtual-hwe-16.04   4.15.0.188.175

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.
