Detail

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

- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS - Ubuntu 16.04 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-gke-4.15: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems - linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments - linux-oem: Linux kernel for OEM processors - linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems - linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2 - linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Snapdragon processors - linux-aws-hwe: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS-HWE) systems - linux-gcp: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems - linux-hwe: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel

Details:

It was discovered that a buffer overflow existed in the 802.11 Wi-Fi configuration interface for the Linux kernel when handling beacon settings. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-16746)

Nicolas Waisman discovered that the WiFi driver stack in the Linux kernel did not properly validate SSID lengths. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2019-17133)

It was discovered that the ADIS16400 IIO IMU Driver for the Linux kernel did not properly deallocate memory in certain error conditions. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (memory exhaustion). (CVE-2019-19060)

It was discovered that the Intel OPA Gen1 Infiniband Driver for the Linux kernel did not properly deallocate memory in certain error conditions. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (memory exhaustion). (CVE-2019-19065)

It was discovered that the Cascoda CA8210 SPI 802.15.4 wireless controller driver for the Linux kernel did not properly deallocate memory in certain error conditions. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (memory exhaustion). (CVE-2019-19075)

Nicolas Waisman discovered that the Chelsio T4/T5 RDMA Driver for the Linux kernel performed DMA from a kernel stack. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2019-17075)

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.
