Ubuntu 16.04 LTS : linux, linux-aws, linux-kvm, linux-raspi2, linux-snapdragon vulnerabilities (USN-4145-1)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 129491
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the GFS2 file system in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2016-10905)

It was discovered that the IPv6 implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate socket options in some situations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-18509)

It was discovered that the USB gadget Midi driver in the Linux kernel contained a double-free vulnerability when handling certain error conditions. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2018-20961)

It was discovered that the XFS file system in the Linux kernel did not properly handle mount failures in some situations. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-20976)

It was discovered that the Intel Wi-Fi device driver in the Linux kernel did not properly validate certain Tunneled Direct Link Setup (TDLS). A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (Wi-Fi disconnect). (CVE-2019-0136)

It was discovered that the Bluetooth UART implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly check for missing tty operations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2019-10207)

It was discovered that an integer overflow existed in the Linux kernel when reference counting pages, leading to potential use-after-free issues. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-11487)

It was discovered that the GTCO tablet input driver in the Linux kernel did not properly bounds check the initial HID report sent by the device. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2019-13631)

It was discovered that the Raremono AM/FM/SW radio device driver in the Linux kernel did not properly allocate memory, leading to a use-after-free. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2019-15211)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the CPiA2 video4linux device driver for the Linux kernel, leading to a use-after-free. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-15215)

It was discovered that the Atheros mobile chipset driver in the Linux kernel did not properly validate data in some situations. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2019-15926).

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.
