==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 23.04
- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

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-azure: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud 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-lowlatency: Linux low latency kernel
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-raspi: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi systems
- linux-starfive: Linux kernel for StarFive processors
- linux-aws-6.2: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-azure-6.2: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure cloud systems
- linux-azure-fde-6.2: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure CVM cloud systems
- linux-gcp-6.2: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-hwe-6.2: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-lowlatency-hwe-6.2: Linux low latency kernel

Details:

Jana Hofmann, Emanuele Vannacci, Cedric Fournet, Boris Kopf, and Oleksii
Oleksenko discovered that some AMD processors could leak stale data from
division operations in certain situations. A local attacker could possibly
use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2023-20588)

It was discovered that the ARM64 KVM implementation in the Linux kernel did
not properly restrict hypervisor memory access. An attacker in a guest VM
could use this to execute arbitrary code in the host OS. (CVE-2023-21264)

It was discovered that the bluetooth subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle L2CAP socket release, 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-2023-40283)

It was discovered that some network classifier implementations in the Linux
kernel contained use-after-free vulnerabilities. A local attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-4128)

Lonial Con discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
contained a memory leak when handling certain element flush operations. A
local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel
memory). (CVE-2023-4569)

Update instructions:

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.
