==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Available with Ubuntu Pro)

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel
- linux-aws: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-azure: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure Cloud systems
- linux-bluefield: Linux kernel for NVIDIA BlueField platforms
- linux-gcp: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-gkeop: Linux kernel for Google Container Engine (GKE) systems
- linux-ibm: Linux kernel for IBM cloud systems
- linux-kvm: Linux kernel for cloud environments
- linux-oracle: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-raspi: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi systems
- linux-xilinx-zynqmp: Linux kernel for Xilinx ZynqMP processors
- linux-aws-5.4: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-azure-5.4: Linux kernel for Microsoft Azure cloud systems
- linux-gcp-5.4: Linux kernel for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) systems
- linux-hwe-5.4: Linux hardware enablement (HWE) kernel
- linux-ibm-5.4: Linux kernel for IBM cloud systems
- linux-oracle-5.4: Linux kernel for Oracle Cloud systems
- linux-raspi-5.4: Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi systems

Details:

Seth Jenkins discovered that the Linux kernel did not properly perform
address randomization for a per-cpu memory management structure. A local
attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory) or
in conjunction with another kernel vulnerability. (CVE-2023-0597)

Yu Hao and Weiteng Chen discovered that the Bluetooth HCI UART driver in
the Linux kernel contained a race condition, leading to a null pointer
dereference vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2023-31083)

Lin Ma discovered that the Netlink Transformation (XFRM) subsystem in the
Linux kernel contained a null pointer dereference vulnerability in some
situations. A local privileged attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service (system crash). (CVE-2023-3772)

It was discovered that the Siano USB MDTV receiver device driver in the
Linux kernel did not properly handle device initialization failures in
certain situations, leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. A physically
proximate attacker could use this cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2023-4132)

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.
