linux-oem-5.17 vulnerabilities
=========================================================================
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-oem-5.17: 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)

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 (system crash) in the host OS. (CVE-2022-1789)

Qiuhao Li, Gaoning Pan, and Yongkang Jia discovered that the KVM hypervisor
implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly handle an illegal
instruction in a guest, resulting in a null pointer dereference. An
attacker in a guest VM could use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash) in the host OS. (CVE-2022-1852)

Gerald Lee discovered that the NTFS file system implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly handle certain 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 expose sensitive information.
(CVE-2022-1973)

It was discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
contained a buffer overflow in certain situations. A local attacker could
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-2078)

It was discovered that some Intel processors did not completely perform
cleanup actions on multi-core shared buffers. A local attacker could
possibly use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2022-21123)

It was discovered that some Intel processors did not completely perform
cleanup actions on microarchitectural fill buffers. A local attacker could
possibly use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2022-21125)

It was discovered that some Intel processors did not properly perform
cleanup during specific special register write operations. A local attacker
could possibly use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2022-21166)

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, CVE-2022-34495)

Minh Yuan discovered that the floppy disk driver in the Linux kernel
contained a race condition, leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. A
local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-1652)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:
  linux-image-5.17.0-1013-oem     5.17.0-1013.14
  linux-image-oem-22.04           5.17.0.1013.12
  linux-image-oem-22.04a          5.17.0.1013.12

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.
