USN-4912-1: Linux kernel (OEM) vulnerabilities3 min read

Piotr Krysiuk discovered that the BPF JIT compiler for x86 in the Linux
kernel did not properly validate computation of branch displacements in
some situations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-29154)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the binder IPC
implementation in the Linux kernel, leading to a use-after-free
vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2020-0423)

It was discovered that the HID multitouch implementation within the Linux
kernel did not properly validate input events in some situations. A
physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2020-0465)

It was discovered that the eventpoll (aka epoll) implementation in the
Linux kernel contained a logic error that could lead to a use after free
vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2020-0466)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the perf subsystem of
the Linux kernel, leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. An attacker
with access to the perf subsystem could use this to cause a denial of
service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2020-14351)

It was discovered that the frame buffer implementation in the Linux kernel
did not properly handle some edge cases in software scrollback. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2020-14390)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the hugetlb sysctl
implementation in the Linux kernel. A privileged attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2020-25285)

It was discovered that the GENEVE tunnel implementation in the Linux kernel
when combined with IPSec did not properly select IP routes in some
situations. An attacker could use this to expose sensitive information
(unencrypted network traffic). (CVE-2020-25645)

Bodong Zhao discovered a use-after-free in the Sun keyboard driver
implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2020-25669)

Shisong Qin and Bodong Zhao discovered that Speakup screen reader driver in
the Linux kernel did not correctly handle setting line discipline in some
situations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash). (CVE-2020-27830)

It was discovered that the Marvell WiFi-Ex device driver in the Linux
kernel did not properly validate ad-hoc SSIDs. A local attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2020-36158)

Loris Reiff discovered that the BPF implementation in the Linux kernel did
not properly validate attributes in the getsockopt BPF hook. A local
attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (system
crash). (CVE-2021-20194)

Adam Zabrocki discovered that the kprobes subsystem in the Linux kernel did
not properly detect linker padding in some situations. A privileged
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or
possibly expose sensitive information. (CVE-2021-3411)

吴异 discovered that the NFS implementation in the Linux kernel did not
properly prevent access outside of an NFS export that is a subdirectory of
a file system. An attacker could possibly use this to bypass NFS access
restrictions. (CVE-2021-3178)
