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

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

– Ubuntu 19.10
– Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
– Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in GNU C Library.

Software Description:
– glibc: GNU C Library

Details:

Florian Weimer discovered that the GNU C Library incorrectly handled
certain memory operations. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause
the GNU C Library to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly
execute arbitrary code. This issue only affected Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
(CVE-2017-12133)

It was discovered that the GNU C Library incorrectly handled certain
SSE2-optimized memmove operations. A remote attacker could use this issue
to cause the GNU C Library to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or
possibly execute arbitrary code. This issue only affected Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
(CVE-2017-18269)

It was discovered that the GNU C Library incorrectly handled certain
pathname operations. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause the
GNU C Library to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly
execute arbitrary code. This issue only affected Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
(CVE-2018-11236)

It was discovered that the GNU C Library incorrectly handled certain
AVX-512-optimized mempcpy operations. A remote attacker could use this
issue to cause the GNU C Library to crash, resulting in a denial of
service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. This issue only affected
Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. (CVE-2018-11237)

It was discovered that the GNU C Library incorrectly handled certain
hostname loookups. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause the GNU
C Library to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute
arbitrary code. This issue only affected Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. (CVE-2018-19591)

Jakub Wilk discovered that the GNU C Library incorrectly handled certain
memalign functions. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause the GNU
C Library to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute
arbitrary code. This issue only affected Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. (CVE-2018-6485)

It was discovered that the GNU C Library incorrectly ignored the
LD_PREFER_MAP_32BIT_EXEC environment variable after security transitions. A
local attacker could use this issue to bypass ASLR restrictions.
(CVE-2019-19126)

It was discovered that the GNU C Library incorrectly handled certain
regular expressions. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to
cause the GNU C Library to crash, resulting in a denial of service. This
issue only affected Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. (CVE-2019-9169)

It was discovered that the GNU C Library incorrectly handled certain
bit patterns. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause the GNU C
Library to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute
arbitrary code. This issue only affected Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Ubuntu 18.04
LTS. (CVE-2020-10029)

It was discovered that the GNU C Library incorrectly handled certain
signal trampolines on PowerPC. A remote attacker could use this issue to
cause the GNU C Library to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or
possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2020-1751)

It was discovered that the GNU C Library incorrectly handled tilde
expansion. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause the GNU C
Library to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2020-1752)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 19.10:
libc6 2.30-0ubuntu2.2

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
libc6 2.27-3ubuntu1.2

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
libc6 2.23-0ubuntu11.2

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