More information:

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service or information leaks.

  • CVE-2022-2873

    Zheyu Ma discovered that an out-of-bounds memory access flaw in the Intel iSMT SMBus 2.0 host controller driver may result in denial of service (system crash).

  • CVE-2022-3545

    It was discovered that the Netronome Flow Processor (NFP) driver contained a use-after-free flaw in area_cache_get(), which may result in denial of service or the execution of arbitrary code.

  • CVE-2022-3623

    A race condition when looking up a CONT-PTE/PMD size hugetlb page may result in denial of service or an information leak.

  • CVE-2022-4696

    A use-after-free vulnerability was discovered in the io_uring subsystem.

  • CVE-2022-36280

    An out-of-bounds memory write vulnerability was discovered in the vmwgfx driver, which may allow a local unprivileged user to cause a denial of service (system crash).

  • CVE-2022-41218

    Hyunwoo Kim reported a use-after-free flaw in the Media DVB core subsystem caused by refcount races, which may allow a local user to cause a denial of service or escalate privileges.

  • CVE-2022-45934

    An integer overflow in l2cap_config_req() in the Bluetooth subsystem was discovered, which may allow a physically proximate attacker to cause a denial of service (system crash).

  • CVE-2022-47929

    Frederick Lawler reported a NULL pointer dereference in the traffic control subsystem allowing an unprivileged user to cause a denial of service by setting up a specially crafted traffic control configuration.

  • CVE-2023-0179

    Davide Ornaghi discovered incorrect arithmetics when fetching VLAN header bits in the netfilter subsystem, allowing a local user to leak stack and heap addresses or potentially local privilege escalation to root.

  • CVE-2023-0266

    A use-after-free flaw in the sound subsystem due to missing locking may result in denial of service or privilege escalation.

  • CVE-2023-0394

    Kyle Zeng discovered a NULL pointer dereference flaw in rawv6_push_pending_frames() in the network subsystem allowing a local user to cause a denial of service (system crash).

  • CVE-2023-23454

    Kyle Zeng reported that the Class Based Queueing (CBQ) network scheduler was prone to denial of service due to interpreting classification results before checking the classification return code.

  • CVE-2023-23455

    Kyle Zeng reported that the ATM Virtual Circuits (ATM) network scheduler was prone to a denial of service due to interpreting classification results before checking the classification return code.

For the stable distribution (bullseye), these problems have been fixed in version 5.10.162-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your linux packages.
