grub2-signed, grub2-unsigned vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 23.04
- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in GRUB2.

Software Description:
- grub2-signed: GRand Unified Bootloader
- grub2-unsigned: GRand Unified Bootloader

Details:

It was discovered that a specially crafted file system image could cause a
heap-based out-of-bounds write. A local attacker could potentially use this
to perform arbitrary code execution bypass and bypass secure boot
protections. (CVE-2023-4692)

It was discovered that a specially crafted file system image could cause an
out-of-bounds read. A physically-present attacker could possibly use this
to leak sensitive information to the GRUB pager. (CVE-2023-4693)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 23.04:
   grub-efi-amd64                  2.06-2ubuntu17.2
