USN-4363-1: Linux kernel vulnerabilities
- Canonical Ubuntu 16.04
It was discovered that the Serial CAN interface driver in the Linux kernel did not properly initialize data. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2020-11494)
It was discovered that the linux kernel did not properly validate certain mount options to the tmpfs virtual memory file system. A local attacker with the ability to specify mount options could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2020-11565)
David Gibson discovered that the Linux kernel on Power9 CPUs did not properly save and restore Authority Mask registers state in some situations. A local attacker in a guest VM could use this to cause a denial of service (host system crash). (CVE-2020-11669)
It was discovered that the block layer in the Linux kernel contained a race condition 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-2020-12657)
CVEs contained in this USN include: CVE-2020-11494, CVE-2020-11565, CVE-2020-11669, CVE-2020-12657.
