Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2447-2
December 19, 2014

linux-lts-utopic regression
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

USN-2447-1 introduced a regression in the Linux kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-lts-utopic: Linux hardware enablement kernel from Utopic

Details:

USN-2447-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel. Due to an unrelated
regression TCP Throughput drops to zero for several drivers after upgrading.
This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

An information leak in the Linux kernel was discovered that could leak the
high 16 bits of the kernel stack address on 32-bit Kernel Virtual Machine
(KVM) paravirt guests. A user in the guest OS could exploit this leak to
obtain information that could potentially be used to aid in attacking the
kernel. (CVE-2014-8134)

Rabin Vincent, Robert Swiecki, Russell King discovered that the ftrace
subsystem of the Linux kernel does not properly handle private syscall
numbers. A local user could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service
(OOPS). (CVE-2014-7826)

A flaw in the handling of malformed ASCONF chunks by SCTP (Stream Control
Transmission Protocol) implementation in the Linux kernel was discovered. A
remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service
(system crash). (CVE-2014-3673)

A flaw in the handling of duplicate ASCONF chunks by SCTP (Stream Control
Transmission Protocol) implementation in the Linux kernel was discovered. A
remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service
(panic). (CVE-2014-3687)

It was discovered that excessive queuing by SCTP (Stream Control
Transmission Protocol) implementation in the Linux kernel can cause memory
pressure. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of
service. (CVE-2014-3688)

Rabin Vincent, Robert Swiecki, Russell Kinglaw discovered a flaw in how the
perf subsystem of the Linux kernel handles private systecall numbers. A
local user could exploit this to cause a denial of service (OOPS) or bypass
ASLR protections via a crafted application. (CVE-2014-7825)

Andy Lutomirski discovered a flaw in how the Linux kernel handles
pivot_root when used with a chroot directory. A local user could exploit
this flaw to cause a denial of service (mount-tree loop). (CVE-2014-7970)

Dmitry Monakhov discovered a race condition in the ext4_file_write_iter
function of the Linux kernel's ext4 filesystem. A local user could exploit
this flaw to cause a denial of service (file unavailability).
(CVE-2014-8086)

The KVM (kernel virtual machine) subsystem of the Linux kernel
miscalculates the number of memory pages during the handling of a mapping
failure. A guest OS user could exploit this to cause a denial of service
(host OS page unpinning) or possibly have unspecified other impact by
leveraging guest OS privileges. (CVE-2014-8369)

Andy Lutomirski discovered that the Linux kernel does not properly handle
faults associated with the Stack Segment (SS) register on the x86
architecture. A local attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of
service (panic). (CVE-2014-9090)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
linux-image-3.16.0-28-generic 3.16.0-28.38~14.04.1
linux-image-3.16.0-28-generic-lpae 3.16.0-28.38~14.04.1
linux-image-3.16.0-28-lowlatency 3.16.0-28.38~14.04.1
linux-image-3.16.0-28-powerpc-e500mc 3.16.0-28.38~14.04.1
linux-image-3.16.0-28-powerpc-smp 3.16.0-28.38~14.04.1
linux-image-3.16.0-28-powerpc64-emb 3.16.0-28.38~14.04.1
linux-image-3.16.0-28-powerpc64-smp 3.16.0-28.38~14.04.1

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