BlueBorne Vulnerability Is Patched in All Supported Ubuntu Releases, Update Now

BlueBorne Vulnerability Is Patched in All Supported Ubuntu Releases, Update Now (Malware and Vulnerabilities)

Canonical released today new kernel updates for all of its supported Ubuntu Linux releases, patching recently discovered security vulnerabilities, including the infamous BlueBorne that exposes billions of Bluetooth devices. The BlueBorne vulnerability (CVE-2017-1000251) appears to affect all supported Ubuntu versions, including Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus), Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) up to 16.04.3, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) up to 14.04.5, and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) up to 12.04.5. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash)," wrote Canonical in Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3419-1 for Ubuntu 17.04. Today's kernel updates also patch a buffer overflow in Linux kernel's Broadcom FullMAC WLAN driver on Ubuntu 17.04, as well as an issue in the F2FS file system, a race condition in the NXP SAA7164 TV Decoder driver, and a buffer overflow in the ioctl handling code of Linux kernel's ISDN subsystem on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
