Ubuntu Security Notice USN-6821-2
June 10, 2024

linux-gkeop, linux-gkeop-5.15, linux-kvm vulnerabilities

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

- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS


Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-gkeop: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-gkeop-5.15: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems


It was discovered that the ATA over Ethernet (AoE) driver in the Linux
kernel contained a race condition, leading to a use-after-free
vulnerability. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or
possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-6270)

It was discovered that the Atheros 802.11ac wireless driver did not
properly validate certain data structures, leading to a NULL pointer
dereference. An attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of
service. (CVE-2023-7042)

It was discovered that the HugeTLB file system component of the Linux
Kernel contained a NULL pointer dereference vulnerability. A privileged
attacker could possibly use this to to cause a denial of service.

Yuxuan Hu discovered that the Bluetooth RFCOMM protocol driver in the Linux
Kernel contained a race condition, leading to a NULL pointer dereference.
An attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash). (CVE-2024-22099)

It was discovered that the MediaTek SoC Gigabit Ethernet driver in the
Linux kernel contained a race condition when stopping the device. A local
attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (device
unavailability). (CVE-2024-27432)

Several security issues were discovered in the Linux kernel.
An attacker could possibly use these to compromise the system.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
   linux-image-5.15.0-1046-gkeop   5.15.0-1046.53
   linux-image-5.15.0-1060-kvm     5.15.0-1060.65

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
   linux-image-5.15.0-1046-gkeop   5.15.0-1046.53~20.04.1

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.
