Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4950-1

=========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-4950-1
May 11, 2021

linux, linux-aws, linux-azure, linux-gcp, linux-kvm, linux-oracle,
linux-raspi vulnerabilities
=========================================================================
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 21.04

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-azure: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
- linux-gcp: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-raspi: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi (V8) systems

Details:

Ryota Shiga discovered that the eBPF implementation in the Linux kernel did
not properly verify that a BPF program only reserved as much memory for a
ring buffer as was allocated. A local attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-3489)

Manfred Paul discovered that the eBPF implementation in the Linux kernel
did not properly track bounds on bitwise operations. A local attacker could
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2021-3490)

Billy Jheng Bing-Jhong discovered that the io_uring implementation of the
Linux kernel did not properly enforce the MAX_RW_COUNT limit in some
situations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-3491)

Norbert Slusarek discovered that the CAN ISOTP protocol implementation
in the Linux kernel contained a race condition. A local attacker could
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code. Please note that to address this issue,
SF_BROADCAST support was removed temporarily from the CAN ISOTP
implementation in Ubuntu 21.04 kernels. (LP: #1927409)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 21.04:

linux-image-virtual 5.11.0.17.18

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.

Thanks for everything Templateism - You should have written the code a little more complicated
