Ubuntu 18.04 LTS : linux, linux-aws, linux-azure, linux-gcp, linux-kvm, linux-oem, linux-raspi2 vulnerabilities (USN-3695-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 110894

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

Wen Xu discovered that the ext4 file system implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly initialize the crc32c checksum driver. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2018-1094)

It was discovered that the cdrom driver in the Linux kernel contained an incorrect bounds check. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2018-10940)

Wen Xu discovered that the ext4 file system implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate xattr sizes. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2018-1095)

Jann Horn discovered that the 32 bit adjtimex() syscall implementation for 64 bit Linux kernels did not properly initialize memory returned to user space in some situations. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2018-11508)

It was discovered that an information leak vulnerability existed in the floppy driver in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2018-7755).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
