LSN-0103-1: Kernel Live Patch Security Notice

Ubuntu Security Advisory

Lonial Con discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
contained a memory leak when handling certain element flush operations. A
local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel
memory).(CVE-2023-4569)

Xingyuan Mo discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly handle inactive elements in its PIPAPO data structure, 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-2023-6817)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the AppleTalk networking
subsystem of the Linux kernel, 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-2023-51781)

Kevin Rich discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly check deactivated elements in certain 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-2024-0193)

Lonial Con discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly handle element deactivation in certain cases, 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-2024-1085)

Notselwyn discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly handle verdict parameters in certain cases, 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-2024-1086)

In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been
resolved: net: qualcomm: rmnet: fix global oob in rmnet_policy The variable
rmnet_link_ops assign a *bigger* maxtype which leads to a global out-of-
bounds read when parsing the netlink attributes. (CVE-2024-26597)
