LSN-0098-1: Kernel Live Patch Security Notice

Ubuntu Security Advisory

It was discovered that the IP-VLAN network driver for the Linux kernel did
not properly initialize memory in some situations, leading to an out-of-
bounds write vulnerability. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.(CVE-2023-3090)

It was discovered that the virtual terminal driver in the Linux kernel
contained a use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker could use this
to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly expose sensitive
information (kernel memory).(CVE-2023-3567)

It was discovered that the universal 32bit network packet classifier
implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly perform reference
counting in some situations, 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-2023-3609)

It was discovered that the network packet classifier with
netfilter/firewall marks implementation in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle reference counting, 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-2023-3776)

Kevin Rich discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly handle table rules flush in certain circumstances. A local
attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash) or execute arbitrary code.(CVE-2023-3777)

Kevin Rich discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly handle rule additions to bound chains in certain
circumstances. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial
of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary code.(CVE-2023-3995)

It was discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle PIPAPO element removal, leading to a use-after-free
vulnerability. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial
of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary code.(CVE-2023-4004)

It was discovered that some network classifier implementations in the Linux
kernel contained use-after-free vulnerabilities. A local attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code.(CVE-2023-4128)

Ye Zhang and Nicolas Wu discovered that the io_uring subsystem in the Linux
kernel did not properly handle locking for rings with IOPOLL, leading to a
double-free vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.(CVE-2023-21400)

It was discovered that the bluetooth subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle L2CAP socket release, 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-2023-40283)
