[USN-4135-1] Linux kernel vulnerabilities

Steve Beattie
==========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4135-1
September 18, 2019

linux, linux-aws, linux-aws-hwe, linux-azure, linux-gcp,
linux-gke-4.15, linux-gke-5.0, linux-hwe, linux-kvm, linux-oem,
linux-oracle, linux-raspi2, linux-snapdragon vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 19.04
- 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-azure: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
- linux-gcp: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2
- linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Snapdragon processors
- linux-gke-4.15: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-gke-5.0: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-hwe: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-oem: Linux kernel for OEM processors
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-aws-hwe: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS-HWE) systems

Details:

Peter Pi discovered a buffer overflow in the virtio network backend
(vhost_net) implementation in the Linux kernel. An attacker in a guest may
be able to use this to cause a denial of service (host OS crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code in the host OS. (CVE-2019-14835)

It was discovered that the Linux kernel on PowerPC architectures did not
properly handle Facility Unavailable exceptions in some situations. A local
attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2019-15030)

It was discovered that the Linux kernel on PowerPC architectures did not
properly handle exceptions on interrupts in some situations. A local
attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2019-15031)

Update instructions:

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.
