Summary

There is a vulnerability in Linux kernel, used by IBM Elastic Storage System, which could allow a denial of service. Fixes for these vulnerabilities are available.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID:CVE-2022-1012
**DESCRIPTION:**Linux Kernel could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by a memory leak flaw in the TCP source port generation algorithm in the net/ipv4/tcp.c function. By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain sensitive information or cause a denial of service condition.
CVSS Base score: 8.2
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/230055 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:H)

CVEID:CVE-2022-0494
**DESCRIPTION:**Linux Kernel could allow a local authenticated attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by a flaw in the scsi_ioctl function in drivers/scsi/scsi_ioctl.c. By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to obtain kernel 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/222611 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-2022-32296
**DESCRIPTION:**Linux Kernel could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by a flaw when increase the source port perturb table. By observing what source ports are used, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to identify a client information, and use this information to launch further attacks against the affected system.
CVSS Base score: 5.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/228178 for the current score.
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N)
