Ubuntu 19.04 : linux-aws vulnerabilities (USN-4117-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 128477

Synopsis

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

Description

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)

Amit Klein and Benny Pinkas discovered that the Linux kernel did not sufficiently randomize IP ID values generated for connectionless networking protocols. A remote attacker could use this to track particular Linux devices. (CVE-2019-10638)

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 a use-after-free vulnerability in the Linux kernel when accessing LDT entries in some situations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-13233)

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 floppy driver in the Linux kernel did not properly validate meta data, leading to a buffer overread. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2019-14283)

It was discovered that the floppy driver in the Linux kernel did not properly validate ioctl() calls, leading to a division-by-zero. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2019-14284)

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)

Jason Wang discovered that an infinite loop vulnerability existed in the virtio net driver in the Linux kernel. A local attacker in a guest VM could possibly use this to cause a denial of service in the host system. (CVE-2019-3900).

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 linux-image-5.0-aws and / or linux-image-aws packages.
