[USN-4694-1] Linux kernel vulnerability

Steve Beattie
==========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4694-1
January 14, 2021

linux, linux-hwe, linux-hwe-5.4, linux-hwe-5.8, linux-lts-xenial
vulnerability
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 20.10
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 ESM

Summary:

The system could allow unintended access to data in some environments.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel
- linux-hwe-5.8: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-hwe-5.4: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-hwe: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-lts-xenial: Linux hardware enablement kernel from Xenial for Trusty

Details:

It was discovered that the LIO SCSI target implementation in the Linux
kernel performed insufficient identifier checking in certain XCOPY
requests. An attacker with access to at least one LUN in a multiple
backstore environment could use this to expose sensitive information or
modify data.

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.
