linux, linux-aws, linux-aws-hwe, linux-azure-4.15, linux-dell300x,
linux-gcp, linux-gcp-4.15, linux-hwe, linux-kvm, linux-oracle,
linux-raspi2, linux-snapdragon vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 16.04 ESM
- Ubuntu 14.04 ESM

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-4.15: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
- linux-dell300x: Linux kernel for Dell 300x platforms
- linux-gcp-4.15: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-raspi2: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi systems
- linux-snapdragon: Linux kernel for Qualcomm Snapdragon processors
- linux-aws-hwe: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS-HWE) systems
- linux-azure: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
- linux-gcp: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-hwe: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel

Details:

Nadav Amit discovered that the hugetlb implementation in the Linux kernel
did not perform TLB flushes under certain conditions. A local attacker
could use this to leak or alter data from other processes that use huge
pages. (CVE-2021-4002)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the timer implementation
in the Linux kernel. A privileged attacker could use this cause a denial of
service. (CVE-2021-20317)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the overlay file system
implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2021-20321)

It was discovered that the NFC subsystem in the Linux kernel contained a
use-after-free vulnerability in its NFC Controller Interface (NCI)
implementation. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial
of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-3760)

It was discovered that an integer overflow could be triggered in the eBPF
implementation in the Linux kernel when preallocating objects for stack
maps. A privileged local attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-41864)

It was discovered that the ISDN CAPI implementation in the Linux kernel
contained a race condition in certain situations that could trigger an
array out-of-bounds bug. A privileged local attacker could possibly use
this to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2021-43389)

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
