Ubuntu 5517-1: Linux kernel (OEM) vulnerabilities

Advisories

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-5517-1

linux-oem-5.14 vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-oem-5.14: Linux kernel for OEM systems

Details:

It was discovered that the Atheros ath9k wireless device driver in the
Linux kernel did not properly handle some error conditions, 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-2022-1679)

It was discovered that the virtio RPMSG bus driver in the Linux kernel
contained a double-free vulnerability in certain error conditions. A local
attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash). (CVE-2022-34494)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
  linux-image-5.14.0-1045-oem     5.14.0-1045.51
  linux-image-oem-20.04           5.14.0.1045.41
  linux-image-oem-20.04b          5.14.0.1045.41
  linux-image-oem-20.04c          5.14.0.1045.41
  linux-image-oem-20.04d          5.14.0.1045.41

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.
