USN-4432-2: GRUB2 regression

USN-4432-1 fixed vulnerabilities in GRUB2 affecting Secure Boot environments. Unfortunately, the update introduced regressions for some BIOS systems (either pre-UEFI or UEFI configured in Legacy mode), preventing them from successfully booting. This update addresses the issue. Users with BIOS systems that installed GRUB2 versions from USN-4432-1 should verify that their GRUB2 installation has a correct understanding of their boot device location and installed the boot loader correctly. We apologize for the inconvenience. Original advisory details: Jesse Michael and Mickey Shkatov discovered that the configuration parser in GRUB2 did not properly exit when errors were discovered, resulting in heap-based buffer overflows. A local attacker could use this to execute arbitrary code and bypass UEFI Secure Boot restrictions. (CVE-2020-10713) Chris Coulson discovered that the GRUB2 function handling code did not properly handle a function being redefined, leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to execute arbitrary code and bypass UEFI Secure Boot restrictions.
