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:

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 framebuffer driver on the Linux kernel did 
not verify size limits when changing font or screen size, 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-2021-33655)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:
   linux-image-5.17.0-1016-oem     5.17.0-1016.17
   linux-image-oem-22.04           5.17.0.1016.15
   linux-image-oem-22.04a          5.17.0.1016.15

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.
