[USN-4144-1] Linux kernel vulnerabilities

Steve Beattie
==========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4144-1
October 01, 2019

linux, linux-aws, linux-aws-hwe, linux-azure, 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 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-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-azure: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
- linux-hwe: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel

Details:

It was discovered that the XFS file system in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle mount failures in some situations. A local attacker could
possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-20976)

Benjamin Moody discovered that the XFS file system in the Linux kernel did
not properly handle an error condition when out of disk quota. A local
attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service.
(CVE-2019-15538)

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.
