CVE-2021-38199 CVE-2021-38205 CVE-2021-40490

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

CVE-2020-3702

A flaw was found in the driver for Atheros IEEE 802.11n family of
chipsets (ath9k) allowing information disclosure.

CVE-2020-16119

Hadar Manor reported a use-after-free in the DCCP protocol
implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker can take
advantage of this flaw to cause a denial of service or potentially
to execute arbitrary code.

CVE-2021-3444, CVE-2021-3600

Two flaws were discovered in the Extended BPF (eBPF) verifier.  A
local user could exploit these to read and write arbitrary memory
in the kernel, which could be used for privilege escalation.

This can be mitigated by setting sysctl
kernel.unprivileged_bpf_disabled=1, which disables eBPF use by
unprivileged users.

CVE-2021-3612

Murray McAllister reported a flaw in the joystick input subsystem.
A local user permitted to access a joystick device could exploit
this to read and write out-of-bounds in the kernel, which could
be used for privilege escalation.

CVE-2021-3653

Maxim Levitsky discovered a vulnerability in the KVM hypervisor
implementation for AMD processors in the Linux kernel: Missing
validation of the int_ctl VMCB field could allow a malicious L1
guest to enable AVIC support (Advanced Virtual Interrupt
Controller) for the L2 guest. The L2 guest can take advantage of
this flaw to write to a limited but still relatively large subset
of the host physical memory.

CVE-2021-3655

Ilja Van Sprundel and Marcelo Ricardo Leitner found multiple flaws
in the SCTP implementation, where missing validation could lead to
an out-of-bounds read.  On a system using SCTP, a networked
attacker could exploit these to cause a denial of service (crash).

CVE-2021-3656

Maxim Levitsky and Paolo Bonzini discovered a flaw in the KVM
hypervisor implementation for AMD processors in the Linux
kernel. Missing validation of the `virt_ext` VMCB field could
allow a malicious L1 guest to disable both VMLOAD/VMSAVE
intercepts and VLS (Virtual VMLOAD/VMSAVE) for the L2 guest. Under
these circumstances, the L2 guest is able to run VMLOAD/VMSAVE
unintercepted and thus read/write portions of the host's physical
memory.

CVE-2021-3679

A flaw in the Linux kernel tracing module functionality could
allow a privileged local user (with CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability) to
cause a denial of service (resource starvation).

CVE-2021-3732

Alois Wohlschlager reported a flaw in the implementation of the
overlayfs subsystem, allowing a local attacker with privileges to
mount a filesystem to reveal files hidden in the original mount.

CVE-2021-3743

An out-of-bounds memory read was discovered in the Qualcomm IPC
router protocol implementation, allowing to cause a denial of
service or information leak.

CVE-2021-3753

Minh Yuan reported a race condition in the vt_k_ioctl in
drivers/tty/vt/vt_ioctl.c, which may cause an out of bounds read
in vt.

CVE-2021-22543

David Stevens discovered a flaw in how the KVM hypervisor maps
host memory into a guest.  A local user permitted to access
/dev/kvm could use this to cause certain pages to be freed when
they should not, leading to a use-after-free.  This could be used
to cause a denial of service (crash or memory corruption) or
possibly for privilege escalation.

CVE-2021-33624, CVE-2021-34556, CVE-2021-35477

Multiple researchers discovered flaws in the Extended BPF (eBPF)
verifier's protections against information leaks through
speculation execution.  A local user could exploit these to read
sensitive information.

This can be mitigated by setting sysctl
kernel.unprivileged_bpf_disabled=1, which disables eBPF use by
unprivileged users.

CVE-2021-35039

A flaw was discovered in module signature enforcement.  A custom
kernel with IMA enabled might have allowed loading unsigned kernel
modules when it should not have.

CVE-2021-37159

A flaw was discovered in the hso driver for Option mobile
broadband modems.  An error during initialisation could lead to a
double-free or use-after-free.  An attacker able to plug in USB
devices could use this to cause a denial of service (crash or
memory corruption) or possibly to run arbitrary code.

CVE-2021-38160

A flaw in the virtio_console was discovered allowing data
corruption or data loss by an untrusted device.

CVE-2021-38198

A flaw was discovered in the KVM implementation for x86
processors, that could result in virtual memory protection within
a guest not being applied correctly.  When shadow page tables are
used - i.e. for nested virtualisation, or on CPUs lacking the EPT
or NPT feature - a user of the guest OS might be able to exploit
this for denial of service or privilege escalation within the
guest.

CVE-2021-38199

Michael Wakabayashi reported a flaw in the NFSv4 client
implementation, where incorrect connection setup ordering allows
operations of a remote NFSv4 server to cause a denial of service.

CVE-2021-38205

An information leak was discovered in the xilinx_emaclite network
driver.  On a custom kernel where this driver is enabled and used,
this might make it easier to exploit other kernel bugs.

CVE-2021-40490

A race condition was discovered in the ext4 subsystem when writing
to an inline_data file while its xattrs are changing. This could
result in denial of service.

For Debian 9 stretch, these problems have been fixed in version
4.19.208-1~deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your linux-4.19 packages.
