Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4727-1 ≈ Packet Storm

=========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4727-1
February 10, 2021

linux, linux-aws, linux-azure, linux-gcp, linux-hwe-5.8, linux-kvm,
linux-oem-5.6, linux-oracle, linux-raspi vulnerability
=========================================================================
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

– Ubuntu 20.10
– Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Summary:

The system could be made to crash or run programs as an administrator.

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-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
– linux-raspi: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi (V8) systems
– linux-hwe-5.8: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
– linux-oem-5.6: Linux kernel for OEM systems

Details:

Alexander Popov discovered that multiple race conditions existed in the
AF_VSOCK implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 20.10:
linux-image-5.8.0-1015-raspi 5.8.0-1015.18

linux-image-kvm 5.8.0.1018.20
linux-image-lowlatency 5.8.0.43.48
linux-image-oracle 5.8.0.1020.19
linux-image-raspi 5.8.0.1015.18
linux-image-raspi-nolpae 5.8.0.1015.18
linux-image-virtual 5.8.0.43.48

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
linux-image-5.6.0-1047-oem 5.6.0-1047.51
linux-image-5.8.0-43-generic 5.8.0-43.49~20.04.1
linux-image-5.8.0-43-generic-lpae 5.8.0-43.49~20.04.1
linux-image-5.8.0-43-lowlatency 5.8.0-43.49~20.04.1
linux-image-generic-64k-hwe-20.04 5.8.0.43.49~20.04.29
linux-image-generic-hwe-20.04 5.8.0.43.49~20.04.29
linux-image-generic-lpae-hwe-20.04 5.8.0.43.49~20.04.29
linux-image-lowlatency-hwe-20.04 5.8.0.43.49~20.04.29
linux-image-oem-20.04 5.6.0.1047.43
linux-image-virtual-hwe-20.04 5.8.0.43.49~20.04.29

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.
