Canonical, a British Linux distributor, is updating the Linux kernel for Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (“Jammy Jellyfish”) as well as Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (“Focal Fossa”) to fix vulnerabilities in its operating system. These vulnerabilities could result in a Denial of Service lead.
Eight vulnerabilities have been fixed in security updates
You can now download the latest operating system, Linux 18.104.22.168.46.46, for Ubuntu 22.04 and Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. It has also been upgraded via Hardware Enable Stack (HWE) to Linux kernel 5.15. LOTS. This will close the following Completely Eliminated 8 Distribution Vulnerabilities.
Security Issues Canonical strongly suggests that users immediately update their kernel packages on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, and Linux 5.15 LTS to ensure security. This command can be executed from the command line: sudo.apt update && sudo.apt full-upgrade. Local attackers could use these vulnerabilities to crash the system and execute random malware.
Updates for AWS and Google, IBM, Oracle, Azure
The latest kernel security updates were also released for Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform systems. These include Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud systems, IBM Cloud systems, Oracle Cloud systems, and IBM Cloud systems.
