Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3083-2


19th September, 2016


linux-lts-trusty vulnerabilities


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




  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS





Summary


Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.





Software description





  • linux-lts-trusty
    - Linux hardware enablement kernel from Trusty for Precise







Details


USN-3083-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel for Ubuntu 14.04
LTS. This update provides the corresponding updates for the Linux
Hardware Enablement (HWE) kernel from Ubuntu 14.04 LTS for Ubuntu
12.04 LTS.



Dmitry Vyukov discovered that the IPv6 implementation in the Linux kernel
did not properly handle options data, including a use-after-free. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-3841)



It was discovered that a race condition existed when handling heartbeat-
timeout events in the SCTP implementation of the Linux kernel. A remote
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2015-8767)



Update instructions


The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package version:




Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:




linux-image-3.13.0-96-generic

3.13.0-96.143~precise1






linux-image-3.13.0-96-generic-lpae

3.13.0-96.143~precise1






To update your system, please follow these instructions:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Security/Upgrades.


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.
