Ubuntu Security Notice USN-6247-1
July 25, 2023
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.
- linux-oem-5.17: Linux kernel for OEM systems
David Leadbeater discovered that the netfilter IRC protocol tracking
implementation in the Linux Kernel incorrectly handled certain message
payloads in some situations. A remote attacker could possibly use this to
cause a denial of service or bypass firewall filtering. (CVE-2022-2663)
It was discovered that the IDT 77252 ATM PCI device driver in the Linux
kernel did not properly remove any pending timers during device exit,
resulting in a use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker could
possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-3635)
It was discovered that the network queuing discipline implementation in the
Linux kernel contained a null pointer dereference in some situations. A
local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
Lucas Leong discovered that the IPv6 SR implementation in the Linux kernel
did not properly validate SEG6 configuration attributes, leading to an out-
of-bounds read vulnerability. A privileged attacker could use this to
expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2023-2860)
Mingi Cho discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly validate the status of a nft chain while performing a lookup
by id, leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. An attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-31248)
Tanguy Dubroca discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
did not properly handle certain pointer data type, leading to an out-of-
bounds write vulnerability. A privileged attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:
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.
