Vulnerability Details

CVEID:CVE-2020-28374
**DESCRIPTION:**Linux Kernel could allow a remote authenticated attacker to traverse directories on the system, caused by insufficient identifier checking in the LIO SCSI target code. An attacker could send a specially-crafted URL request to drivers/target/target_core_xcopy.c containing directory traversal sequences in an XCOPY request to read or write files to any LIO backstore.
CVSS Base score: 8.1
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/194620 for the current score.

CVEID:CVE-2021-27363
**DESCRIPTION:**Linux Kernel could allow a local authenticated attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by a kernel pointer leak when show_transport_handle function in drivers/scsi/scsi_transport_iscsi.c is called. By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain the address of the iscsi_transport structure information, and use this information to launch further attacks against the affected system.
CVSS Base score: 5.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/197857 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N)

CVEID:CVE-2021-3347
**DESCRIPTION:**Linux Kernel could allow a local authenticated attacker to gain elevated privileges on the system, caused by a kernel stack use-after-free during fault handling in PI futexes. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to gain elevated privileges and execute arbitrary code in the kernel.
CVSS Base score: 7.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/195798 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H)

CVEID:CVE-2020-25705
**DESCRIPTION:**Linux Kernel could allow a remote attacker to bypass security restrictions, caused by a flaw in the way reply ICMP packets are limited. By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to bypass source port UDP randomization to scan open UDP ports.
CVSS Base score: 7.4
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/191785 for the current score.
