Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:

- linux-azure: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
- linux-gcp: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-lowlatency: Linux low latency kernel
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-raspi: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi systems
- linux-starfive: Linux kernel for StarFive processors
- linux-aws-6.2: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-azure-6.2: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure cloud systems
- linux-azure-fde-6.2: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure CVM cloud systems
- linux-gcp-6.2: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-hwe-6.2: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-lowlatency-hwe-6.2: Linux low latency kernel

Details:

Ross Lagerwall discovered that the Xen netback backend driver in the Linux
kernel did not properly handle certain unusual packets from a
paravirtualized network frontend, leading to a buffer overflow. An attacker
in a guest VM could use this to cause a denial of service (host system
crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-34319)

Bien Pham discovered that the netfiler subsystem in the Linux kernel
contained a race condition, leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. A
local user could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-4244)

Kyle Zeng discovered that the networking stack implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly validate skb object size in certain conditions. An
attacker could use this cause a denial of service (system crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-42752)

Kyle Zeng discovered that the netfiler subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly calculate array offsets, leading to a out-of-bounds write
vulnerability. A local user could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-42753)

Kyle Zeng discovered that the IPv4 Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP)
classifier implementation in the Linux kernel contained an out-of-bounds
read vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service (system crash). Please note that kernel packet classifier support
for RSVP has been removed to resolve this vulnerability. (CVE-2023-42755)

Kyle Zeng discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
contained a race condition in IP set operations in certain situations. A
local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2023-42756)

Bing-Jhong Billy Jheng discovered that the Unix domain socket
implementation in the Linux kernel contained a race condition in certain
situations, leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-4622)

Budimir Markovic discovered that the qdisc implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly validate inner classes, leading to a use-after-free
vulnerability. A local user could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-4623)

Alex Birnberg discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
did not properly validate register length, leading to an out-of- bounds
write vulnerability. A local attacker could possibly use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2023-4881)

It was discovered that the Quick Fair Queueing scheduler implementation in
the Linux kernel did not properly handle network packets in certain
conditions, leading to a use after free vulnerability. A local attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-4921)

Kevin Rich discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly handle removal of rules from chain bindings in certain
circumstances, leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker
could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-5197)

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.
