Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2853-1
December 20, 2015

linux-lts-wily vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.

Software Description:
- linux-lts-wily: Linux hardware enablement kernel from Wily

Details:

Felix Wilhelm discovered a race condition in the Xen paravirtualized
drivers which can cause double fetch vulnerabilities. An attacker in the
paravirtualized guest could exploit this flaw to cause a denial of service
(crash the host) or potentially execute arbitrary code on the host.
(CVE-2015-8550)

Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk discovered the Xen PCI backend driver does not
perform sanity checks on the device's state. An attacker could exploit this
flaw to cause a denial of service (NULL dereference) on the host.
(CVE-2015-8551)

Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk discovered the Xen PCI backend driver does not
perform sanity checks on the device's state. An attacker could exploit this
flaw to cause a denial of service by flooding the logging system with
WARN() messages causing the initial domain to exhaust disk space.
(CVE-2015-8552)

Jann Horn discovered a ptrace issue with user namespaces in the Linux
kernel. The namespace owner could potentially exploit this flaw by ptracing
a root owned process entering the user namespace to elevate its privileges
and potentially gain access outside of the namespace.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
linux-image-4.2.0-22-generic 4.2.0-22.27~14.04.1
linux-image-4.2.0-22-generic-lpae 4.2.0-22.27~14.04.1
linux-image-4.2.0-22-lowlatency 4.2.0-22.27~14.04.1
linux-image-4.2.0-22-powerpc-e500mc 4.2.0-22.27~14.04.1
linux-image-4.2.0-22-powerpc-smp 4.2.0-22.27~14.04.1
linux-image-4.2.0-22-powerpc64-emb 4.2.0-22.27~14.04.1
linux-image-4.2.0-22-powerpc64-smp 4.2.0-22.27~14.04.1

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.
