vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 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-azure-fde: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure cloud systems
- linux-gke: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-gkeop: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-ibm: Linux kernel for IBM cloud systems
- linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-azure-5.4: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure cloud systems
- linux-hwe-5.4: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel

Details:

It was discovered that the implementation of the 6pack and mkiss protocols
in the Linux kernel did not handle detach events properly in some
situations, leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker
could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2022-1195)

Duoming Zhou discovered that the AX.25 amateur radio protocol
implementation in the Linux kernel did not handle detach events properly in
some situations. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial
of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-1199)

Duoming Zhou discovered race conditions in the AX.25 amateur radio protocol
implementation in the Linux kernel during device detach operations. A local
attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash). (CVE-2022-1204)

Duoming Zhou discovered race conditions in the AX.25 amateur radio protocol
implementation in the Linux kernel, leading to use-after-free
vulnerabilities. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial
of service (system crash). (CVE-2022-1205)

Yongkang Jia discovered that the KVM hypervisor implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly handle guest TLB mapping invalidation requests in
some situations. An attacker in a guest VM could use this to cause a denial
of service in the host OS (system crash). (CVE-2022-1789)

Minh Yuan discovered that the floppy driver in the Linux kernel contained a
race condition in some situations, leading to a use-after-free
vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-33981)

Update instructions:

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

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.
