linux-hwe vulnerabilities

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

  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Summary

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description

  • linux-hwe - Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel

Details

USN-3597-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel for Ubuntu 17.10. This update provides the corresponding updates for the Linux Hardware Enablement (HWE) kernel from Ubuntu 17.10 for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

USNS 3541-2 and 3523-2 provided mitigations for Spectre and Meltdown (CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5754) for the i386, amd64, and ppc64el architectures for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. This update provides the corresponding mitigations for the arm64 architecture. Original advisory details:

Jann Horn discovered that microprocessors utilizing speculative execution and indirect branch prediction may allow unauthorized memory reads via sidechannel attacks. This flaw is known as Meltdown. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information, including kernel memory. (CVE-2017-5754)

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
linux-image-4.13.0-37-generic - 4.13.0-37.42~16.04.1
linux-image-4.13.0-37-generic-lpae - 4.13.0-37.42~16.04.1
linux-image-4.13.0-37-lowlatency - 4.13.0-37.42~16.04.1
linux-image-generic-hwe-16.04 - 4.13.0.37.56
linux-image-generic-lpae-hwe-16.04 - 4.13.0.37.56
linux-image-lowlatency-hwe-16.04 - 4.13.0.37.56

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.
