Ubuntu Security Notice USN-6316-1

linux-oem-6.1 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-6.1: Linux kernel for OEM systems

Details:

Daniel Moghimi discovered that some Intel(R) Processors did not properly
clear microarchitectural state after speculative execution of various
instructions. A local unprivileged user could use this to obtain to
sensitive information. (CVE-2022-40982)

Tavis Ormandy discovered that some AMD processors did not properly handle
speculative execution of certain vector register instructions. A local
attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2023-20593)

Kevin Rich discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly handle table rules flush in certain circumstances. A local
attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-3777)

Kevin Rich discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly handle rule additions to bound chains in certain
circumstances. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial
of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-3995)

It was discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle PIPAPO element removal, 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-2023-4004)

Kevin Rich discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly handle bound chain deactivation in certain circumstances. A
local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-4015)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:
   linux-image-6.1.0-1020-oem      6.1.0-1020.20
   linux-image-oem-22.04c          6.1.0.1020.20

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.
