Ubuntu 22.04 LTS : Linux kernel (StarFive) vulnerabilities (USN-6651-3)

high Nessus Plugin ID 191433

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The remote Ubuntu 22.04 LTS host has a package installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the USN-6651-3 advisory.

- An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel before 6.6.8. do_vcc_ioctl in net/atm/ioctl.c has a use-after- free because of a vcc_recvmsg race condition. (CVE-2023-51780)

- An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel before 6.6.8. atalk_ioctl in net/appletalk/ddp.c has a use- after-free because of an atalk_recvmsg race condition. (CVE-2023-51781)

- A Null pointer dereference problem was found in ida_free in lib/idr.c in the Linux Kernel. This issue may allow an attacker using this library to cause a denial of service problem due to a missing check at a function return. (CVE-2023-6915)

- An out-of-bounds memory read flaw was found in receive_encrypted_standard in fs/smb/client/smb2ops.c in the SMB Client sub-component in the Linux Kernel. This issue occurs due to integer underflow on the memcpy length, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2024-0565)

- A memory leak flaw was found in the Linux kernel's io_uring functionality in how a user registers a buffer ring with IORING_REGISTER_PBUF_RING, mmap() it, and then frees it. This flaw allows a local user to crash or potentially escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2024-0582)

- An out-of-bounds memory write flaw was found in the Linux kernel's Transport Layer Security functionality in how a user calls a function splice with a ktls socket as the destination. This flaw allows a local user to crash or potentially escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2024-0646)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Update the affected kernel package.
