linux, linux-aws, linux-aws-hwe, linux-azure, linux-azure-4.15, linux-gcp,
linux-gcp-5.4, linux-hwe, linux-ibm, linux-kvm, linux-oracle,
linux-oracle-5.4, vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 ESM
- Ubuntu 14.04 ESM

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel
- linux-aws: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-gcp: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-ibm: Linux kernel for IBM cloud systems
- linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-azure-4.15: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
- linux-gcp-5.4: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-oracle-5.4: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-aws-hwe: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS-HWE) systems
- linux-hwe: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-azure: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems

Details:

It was discovered that the NFSD implementation in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle some RPC messages, leading to a buffer overflow. A remote
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-43945)

Tamás Koczka discovered that the Bluetooth L2CAP handshake implementation
in the Linux kernel contained multiple use-after-free vulnerabilities. A
physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-42896)

It was discovered that the Xen netback driver in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle packets structured in certain ways. An attacker in a guest
VM could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (host NIC
availability). (CVE-2022-3643)

It was discovered that an integer overflow vulnerability existed in the
Bluetooth subsystem in the Linux kernel. A physically proximate attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2022-45934)

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

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.
