Ubuntu Security Notice USN-5539-1
July 28, 2022

linux-bluefield, linux-gcp-5.4, linux-gke-5.4 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-bluefield: Linux kernel for NVIDIA BlueField platforms
- linux-gcp-5.4: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-gke-5.4: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems

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

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). (CVE-2022-28388)

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
package versions:

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
  linux-image-5.4.0-1042-bluefield  5.4.0-1042.47
  linux-image-bluefield           5.4.0.1042.41

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
  linux-image-5.4.0-1078-gke      5.4.0-1078.84~18.04.1
  linux-image-5.4.0-1084-gcp      5.4.0-1084.92~18.04.1
  linux-image-gcp                 5.4.0.1084.63
  linux-image-gke-5.4             5.4.0.1078.84~18.04.40

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.
