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

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

- Ubuntu 23.10
- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in EDK II.

Software Description:
- edk2: UEFI firmware for virtual machines

Details:

Marc Beatove discovered buffer overflows exit in EDK2. An attacker on the
local network could potentially use this to impact availability or possibly
cause remote code execution. (CVE-2022-36763, CVE-2022-36764,
CVE-2022-36765)

It was discovered that a buffer overflows exists in EDK2's Network Package
An attacker on the local network could potentially use these to impact
availability or possibly cause remote code execution. (CVE-2023-45230,
CVE-2023-45234, CVE-2023-45235)

It was discovered that an out-of-bounds read exists in EDK2's Network
Package An attacker on the local network could potentially use this to
impact confidentiality. (CVE-2023-45231)

It was discovered that infinite-loops exists in EDK2's Network Package
An attacker on the local network could potentially use these to impact
availability. (CVE-2023-45232, CVE-2023-45233)

Mate Kukri discovered that an insecure default to allow UEFI Shell in
EDK2 was left enabled in Ubuntu's EDK2. An attacker could use this to
bypass Secure Boot. (CVE-2023-48733)

Update instructions:

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