Kernel Live Patch Security Notice LSN-0072-1 ≈ Packet Storm

Linux kernel vulnerabilities

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

- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 ESM

Summary

Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.

Software Description

- linux - Linux kernel
- linux-aws - Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-azure - Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
- linux-gcp - Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-oem - Linux kernel for OEM systems

Details

It was discovered that the F2FS file system implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly perform bounds checking on xattrs in some
situations. A local attacker could possibly use this to expose sensitive
information (kernel memory). (CVE-2020-0067)

It was discovered that the Serial CAN interface driver in the Linux
kernel did not properly initialize data. A local attacker could use this
to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2020-11494)

Mauricio Faria de Oliveira discovered that the aufs implementation in
the Linux kernel improperly managed inode reference counts in the
vfsub_dentry_open() method. A local attacker could use this
vulnerability to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2020-11935)

Piotr Krysiuk discovered that race conditions existed in the file system
implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2020-12114)

Or Cohen discovered that the AF_PACKET implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly perform bounds checking in some situations. A
local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2020-14386)

Hador Manor discovered that the DCCP protocol implementation in the
Linux kernel improperly handled socket reuse, leading to a
use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2020-16119)

Giuseppe Scrivano discovered that the overlay file system in the Linux
kernel did not properly perform permission checks in some situations. A
local attacker could possibly use this to bypass intended restrictions
and gain read access to restricted files. (CVE-2020-16120)
