[USN-3256-1] Linux kernel vulnerability

Steve Beattie
==========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3256-1
April 05, 2017

linux, linux-aws, linux-gke, linux-raspi2, linux-snapdragon,
linux-ti-omap4 vulnerability
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 16.10
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Summary:

The system could be made to crash under certain conditions.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel
- linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2
- linux-aws: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-gke: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Snapdragon Processors
- linux-ti-omap4: Linux kernel for OMAP4

Details:

Andrey Konovalov discovered that the AF_PACKET implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly validate certain block-size data. A local attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).

Update instructions:

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

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.
