Ubuntu Security Notice USN-6496-1
November 21, 2023

linux, linux-aws, linux-aws-5.15, linux-hwe-5.15, linux-ibm,
linux-ibm-5.15, linux-kvm, linux-lowlatency, linux-lowlatency-hwe-5.15,
linux-nvidia, linux-oracle, linux-oracle-5.15, linux-raspi vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 20.04 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-ibm: Linux kernel for IBM cloud systems
- linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-lowlatency: Linux low latency kernel
- linux-nvidia: Linux kernel for NVIDIA systems
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-raspi: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi systems
- linux-aws-5.15: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-hwe-5.15: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-ibm-5.15: Linux kernel for IBM cloud systems
- linux-lowlatency-hwe-5.15: Linux low latency kernel
- linux-oracle-5.15: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems

Details:

Ivan D Barrera, Christopher Bednarz, Mustafa Ismail, and Shiraz Saleem
discovered that the InfiniBand RDMA driver in the Linux kernel did not
properly check for zero-length STAG or MR registration. A remote attacker
could possibly use this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-25775)

Yu Hao discovered that the UBI driver in the Linux kernel did not properly
check for MTD with zero erasesize during device attachment. A local
privileged attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash). (CVE-2023-31085)

Manfred Rudigier discovered that the Intel(R) PCI-Express Gigabit (igb)
Ethernet driver in the Linux kernel did not properly validate received
frames that are larger than the set MTU size, leading to a buffer overflow
vulnerability. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-45871)

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.
