Gustavo Romero and Paul Mackerras discovered that the KVM implementation in
the Linux kernel for PowerPC processors did not properly keep guest state
separate from host state. A local attacker in a KVM guest could use this to
cause a denial of service (host system crash). (CVE-2020-8834)

Shijie Luo discovered that the ext4 file system implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly check for a too-large journal size. An attacker
could use this to construct a malicious ext4 image that, when mounted,
could cause a denial of service (soft lockup). (CVE-2020-8992)");
