Issue Overview:

A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the Linux kernel’s SELinux subsystem. This flaw occurs while importing the Commercial IP Security Option (CIPSO) protocol’s category bitmap into the SELinux extensible bitmap via the’ ebitmap_netlbl_import’ routine. While processing the CIPSO restricted bitmap tag in the ‘cipso_v4_parsetag_rbm’ routine, it sets the security attribute to indicate that the category bitmap is present, even if it has not been allocated. This issue leads to a NULL pointer dereference issue while importing the same category bitmap into SELinux. This flaw allows a remote network user to crash the system kernel, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2020-10711)

A flaw was found in the Linux kernel loose validation of child/parent process identification handling while filtering signal handlers. A local attacker is able to abuse this flaw to bypass checks to send any signal to a privileged process. (CVE-2020-12826)

A flaw was found in the Linux kernel’s implementation of the BFQ IO scheduler. This flaw allows a local user able to groom system memory to cause kernel memory corruption and possible privilege escalation by abusing a race condition in the IO scheduler. (CVE-2020-12657)
