Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4713-2 ≈ Packet Storm

=========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4713-2
February 10, 2021

linux, linux-gke-5.0, linux-gke-5.3, linux-hwe, linux-raspi2-5.3
vulnerability
=========================================================================
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

– Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
– Ubuntu 14.04 ESM

Summary:

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

Software Description:
– linux-gke-5.0: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
– linux-gke-5.3: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
– linux-hwe: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
– linux-raspi2-5.3: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi (V8) systems
– linux: Linux kernel

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:

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
linux-image-5.0.0-1051-gke 5.0.0-1051.53

linux-image-powerpc-e500 3.13.0.184.193
linux-image-powerpc-e500mc 3.13.0.184.193
linux-image-powerpc-smp 3.13.0.184.193
linux-image-powerpc64-emb 3.13.0.184.193
linux-image-powerpc64-smp 3.13.0.184.193
linux-image-server 3.13.0.184.193
linux-image-virtual 3.13.0.184.193

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.
