Ubuntu Security Notice USN-5753-1
December 01, 2022

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

– Ubuntu 22.10
– Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
– Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
– Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
– Ubuntu 16.04 ESM


snapd could be made to run programs as an administrator.

Software Description:
– snapd: Daemon and tooling that enable snap packages


The Qualys Research Team discovered that a race condition existed in the
snapd snap-confine binary when preparing the private /tmp mount for a
snap. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to escalate privileges
and execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 22.10:
snapd 2.57.5+22.10ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS:
snapd 2.57.5+22.04ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
snapd 2.57.5+20.04ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
snapd 2.57.5+18.04ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 16.04 ESM:
snapd 2.54.3+16.04.0ubuntu0.1~esm5

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
