Ubuntu Security Notice USN-5589-1
August 30, 2022

linux, linux-raspi 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: Linux kernel
- linux-raspi: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi systems

Details:

Asaf Modelevsky discovered that the Intel(R) 10GbE PCI Express (ixgbe)
Ethernet driver for the Linux kernel performed insufficient control flow
management. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial 
of service. (CVE-2021-33061)

It was discovered that the virtual terminal driver in the Linux kernel 
did not properly handle VGA console font changes, leading to an 
out-of-bounds write. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial 
of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. 
(CVE-2021-33656)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
   linux-image-5.4.0-1069-raspi    5.4.0-1069.79
   linux-image-5.4.0-125-generic   5.4.0-125.141
   linux-image-5.4.0-125-generic-lpae  5.4.0-125.141
   linux-image-5.4.0-125-lowlatency  5.4.0-125.141
   linux-image-generic             5.4.0.125.126
   linux-image-generic-lpae        5.4.0.125.126
   linux-image-lowlatency          5.4.0.125.126
   linux-image-oem                 5.4.0.125.126
   linux-image-oem-osp1            5.4.0.125.126
   linux-image-raspi               5.4.0.1069.102
   linux-image-raspi2              5.4.0.1069.102
   linux-image-virtual             5.4.0.125.126

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.
