Details

It was discovered that the alarmtimer implementation in the Linux kernel contained an integer overflow vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2018-13053)

Wen Xu discovered that the XFS filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly track inode validations. An attacker could use this to construct a malicious XFS image that, when mounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2018-13093)

Wen Xu discovered that the f2fs file system implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate metadata. An attacker could use this to construct a malicious f2fs image that, when mounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2018-13097, CVE-2018-13099, CVE-2018-13100, CVE-2018-14614, CVE-2018-14616, CVE-2018-13096, CVE-2018-13098, CVE-2018-14615)

Wen Xu and Po-Ning Tseng discovered that btrfs file system implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate metadata. An attacker could use this to construct a malicious btrfs image that, when mounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2018-14610, CVE-2018-14611, CVE-2018-14612, CVE-2018-14613, CVE-2018-14609)

Wen Xu discovered that the HFS+ filesystem implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly handle malformed catalog data in some situations. An attacker could use this to construct a malicious HFS+ image that, when mounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2018-14617)

Vasily Averin and Pavel Tikhomirov discovered that the cleancache subsystem of the Linux kernel did not properly initialize new files in some situations. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2018-16862)

Hui Peng and Mathias Payer discovered that the USB subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly handle size checks when handling an extra USB descriptor. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2018-20169)

It was discovered that a use-after-free error existed in the block layer subsystem of the Linux kernel when certain failure conditions occurred. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-20856)

Eli Biham and Lior Neumann discovered that the Bluetooth implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate elliptic curve parameters during Diffie-Hellman key exchange in some situations. An attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2018-5383)

It was discovered that a heap buffer overflow existed in the Marvell Wireless LAN device driver for the Linux kernel. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-10126)

Andrei Vlad Lutas and Dan Lutas discovered that some x86 processors incorrectly handle SWAPGS instructions during speculative execution. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2019-1125)

It was discovered that the PowerPC dlpar implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly check for allocation errors in some situations. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2019-12614)

It was discovered that a NULL pointer dereference vulnerabilty existed in the Near-field communication (NFC) implementation in the Linux kernel. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2019-12818)

It was discovered that the MDIO bus devices subsystem in the Linux kernel improperly dropped a device reference in an error condition, leading to a use-after-free. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2019-12819)

It was discovered that a NULL pointer dereference vulnerability existed in the Near-field communication (NFC) implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2019-12984)

Jann Horn discovered that the ptrace implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly record credentials in some situations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly gain administrative privileges. (CVE-2019-13272)

It was discovered that the Empia EM28xx DVB USB device driver implementation in the Linux kernel contained a use-after-free vulnerability when disconnecting the device. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2019-2024)

It was discovered that the USB video device class implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate control bits, resulting in an out of bounds buffer read. A local attacker could use this to possibly expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2019-2101)

It was discovered that the Marvell Wireless LAN device driver in the Linux kernel did not properly validate the BSS descriptor. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-3846)

It was discovered that the Appletalk IP encapsulation driver in the Linux kernel did not properly prevent kernel addresses from being copied to user space. A local attacker with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2018-20511)

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.
