USN-3821-2: Linux kernel (Xenial HWE) vulnerabilities


Severity

Medium

Vendor

Canonical Ubuntu

Versions Affected
  • Canonical Ubuntu 14.04
Description

USN-3821-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. This update provides the corresponding updates for the Linux Hardware Enablement (HWE) kernel from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

Wen Xu discovered that the ext4 filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly ensure that xattr information remained in inode bodies. An attacker could use this to construct a malicious ext4 image that, when mounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2018-10880)

It was discovered that the alarmtimer implementation in the Linux kernel contained an integer overflow vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2018-13053)

Wen Xu discovered that the f2fs filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate metadata. An attacker could use this to construct a malicious f2fs image that, when mounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2018-13096)

Wen Xu and Po-Ning Tseng discovered that the btrfs filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly handle relocations in some situations. An attacker could use this to construct a malicious btrfs image that, when mounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2018-14609)

Wen Xu discovered that the HFS+ filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly handle malformed catalog data in some situations. An attacker could use this to construct a malicious HFS+ image that, when mounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2018-14617)

Jann Horn discovered that the procfs file system implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly restrict the ability to inspect the kernel stack of an arbitrary task. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2018-17972)

It was discovered that the KVM implementation in the Linux kernel on ARM 64bit processors did not properly handle some ioctls. An attacker with the privilege to create KVM-based virtual machines could use this to cause a denial of service (host system crash) or execute arbitrary code in the host. (CVE-2018-18021)

CVEs contained in this USN include: CVE-2018-10880, CVE-2018-13053, CVE-2018-13096, CVE-2018-14609, CVE-2018-14617, CVE-2018-17972, CVE-2018-18021

Affected Pivotal Products and Versions

Severity is medium unless otherwise noted.

  • Vulnerable Cloud Foundry components individually listed here.
  • Impacted stemcells may be updated independently of upgrading Pivotal Application Service or PCF Isolation Segment.
  • Pivotal Application Service includes vulnerable stemcells and container rootfs in the following releases:
    • 2.2.x versions prior to 2.2.10
    • 2.1.x versions prior to 2.1.18
  • PCF Isolation Segment includes vulnerable stemcells in the following releases:
    • 2.2.x versions prior to 2.2.9
    • 2.1.x versions prior to 2.1.15
  • Pivotal Operations Manager is vulnerable in the following releases:
    • 2.2.x versions prior to 2.2.10
    • 2.1.x versions prior to 2.1.19
Mitigation

Users of affected versions should apply the following mitigation:

  • The Cloud Foundry security team recommends upgrading BOSH to the affected OSS components listed here if applicable.
  • Upgrade Pivotal products that use earlier versions of CF components to new Pivotal releases using new versions linked above. On the Pivotal Network product page for each release, check the Depends On section and/or Release Notes for this information.
  • Releases that have fixed this issue include:
    • Pivotal Application Service: 2.2.10, 2.1.18
    • PCF Isolation Segment: 2.2.9, 2.1.15
