Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4890-1 ≈ Packet Storm

=========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4890-1
March 25, 2021

linux, linux-aws, linux-aws-hwe, linux-azure, linux-azure-4.15,
linux-dell300x, linux-gcp, linux-gcp-4.15, linux-hwe, linux-kvm,
linux-oracle, linux-signed, 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-azure-4.15: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
– linux-dell300x: Linux kernel for Dell 300x platforms
– linux-gcp-4.15: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
– linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
– linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
– linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Qualcomm Snapdragon processors
– linux-aws-hwe: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS-HWE) systems
– linux-azure: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
– linux-gcp: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
– linux-hwe: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel

Details:

Piotr Krysiuk discovered that the BPF subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly compute a speculative execution limit on pointer arithmetic in
some situations. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive
information (kernel memory). (CVE-2020-27171)

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.
