==========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3540-1
January 23, 2018

linux, linux-aws, linux-euclid vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were addressed in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux: Linux kernel
- linux-aws: Linux kernel for Amazon Web Services (AWS) systems
- linux-euclid: Linux kernel for Intel Euclid systems

Details:

Jann Horn discovered that microprocessors utilizing speculative
execution and branch prediction may allow unauthorized memory
reads via sidechannel attacks. This flaw is known as Spectre. A
local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information,
including kernel memory. This update provides mitigations for the
i386 (CVE-2017-5753 only), amd64, ppc64el, and s390x architectures.
(CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2017-5753)

USN-3522-1 mitigated CVE-2017-5754 (Meltdown) for the amd64
architecture in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. This update provides the
corresponding mitigations for the ppc64el architecture. Original
advisory details:

Jann Horn discovered that microprocessors utilizing speculative
execution and indirect branch prediction may allow unauthorized memory
reads via sidechannel attacks. This flaw is known as Meltdown. A local
attacker could use this to expose sensitive information, including
kernel memory. (CVE-2017-5754)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
linux-image-4.4.0-1049-aws 4.4.0-1049.58
linux-image-4.4.0-112-generic 4.4.0-112.135
linux-image-4.4.0-112-generic-lpae 4.4.0-112.135
linux-image-4.4.0-112-lowlatency 4.4.0-112.135
linux-image-4.4.0-112-powerpc-e500mc 4.4.0-112.135
linux-image-4.4.0-112-powerpc-smp 4.4.0-112.135
linux-image-4.4.0-112-powerpc64-emb 4.4.0-112.135
linux-image-4.4.0-112-powerpc64-smp 4.4.0-112.135
linux-image-4.4.0-9023-euclid 4.4.0-9023.24
linux-image-aws 4.4.0.1049.51
linux-image-euclid 4.4.0.9023.24
linux-image-generic 4.4.0.112.118
linux-image-generic-lpae 4.4.0.112.118
linux-image-lowlatency 4.4.0.112.118
linux-image-powerpc-e500mc 4.4.0.112.118
linux-image-powerpc-smp 4.4.0.112.118
linux-image-powerpc64-emb 4.4.0.112.118
linux-image-powerpc64-smp 4.4.0.112.118

Please note that fully mitigating CVE-2017-5715 (Spectre Variant 2)
requires corresponding processor microcode/firmware updates or,
in virtual environments, hypervisor updates. On i386 and amd64
architectures, the IBRS and IBPB features are required to enable the
kernel mitigations. Ubuntu is working with Intel and AMD to provide
future microcode updates that implement IBRS and IBPB as they are made
available. Ubuntu users with a processor from a different vendor should
contact the vendor to identify necessary firmware updates. Ubuntu
will provide corresponding QEMU updates in the future for users of
self-hosted virtual environments in coordination with upstream QEMU.
Ubuntu users in cloud environments should contact the cloud provider
to confirm that the hypervisor has been updated to expose the new
CPU features to virtual machines.

After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to
apply the necessary changes.
