Ubuntu Security Notice USN-5135-1
November 09, 2021

linux, linux-aws, linux-aws-5.11, linux-azure, linux-azure-5.11,
linux-gcp, linux-gcp-5.11, linux-hwe-5.11, linux-kvm, linux-oem-5.13,
linux-oracle, linux-oracle-5.11 vulnerability
=========================================================================
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 21.10
- Ubuntu 21.04
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Summary:

The system could be made to crash under certain conditions.

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-aws-5.11: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-azure-5.11: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure cloud systems
- linux-gcp-5.11: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-hwe-5.11: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-oem-5.13: Linux kernel for OEM systems
- linux-oracle-5.11: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems

Details:

It was discovered that the Linux kernel did not properly account for the
memory usage of certain IPC objects. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service (memory exhaustion).

Update instructions:

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

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.

thank you Templateism for the design - You should have written the code a little more complicated - Nothing Encrypted anymore
