- linux-azure-5.15: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure cloud systems
- linux-gcp-5.15: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-gkeop-5.15: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-hwe-5.15: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-ibm-5.15: Linux kernel for IBM cloud systems
- linux-intel-iotg-5.15: Linux kernel for Intel IoT platforms
- linux-lowlatency-hwe-5.15: Linux low latency kernel
- linux-oracle-5.15: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems

Details:

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the ATM (Asynchronous
Transfer Mode) subsystem of the Linux kernel, 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-2023-51780)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the AppleTalk networking
subsystem of the Linux kernel, 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-2023-51781)

Zhenghan Wang discovered that the generic ID allocator implementation in
the Linux kernel did not properly check for null bitmap when releasing IDs.
A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash). (CVE-2023-6915)

Robert Morris discovered that the CIFS network file system implementation
in the Linux kernel did not properly validate certain server commands
fields, leading to an out-of-bounds read vulnerability. An attacker could
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly expose
sensitive information. (CVE-2024-0565)

Jann Horn discovered that the TLS subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle spliced messages, leading to an out-of-bounds write
vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2024-0646)

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.
