Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3385-1
August 11, 2017

linux, linux-aws, linux-gke, linux-raspi2, linux-snapdragon vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- 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-gke: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi 2
- linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Snapdragon processors

Details:

Andrey Konovalov discovered a race condition in the UDP Fragmentation
Offload (UFO) code in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-1000112)

Andrey Konovalov discovered a race condition in AF_PACKET socket option
handling code in the Linux kernel. A local unprivileged attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-1000111)

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.
