Selim Enes Karaduman discovered that a race condition existed in the
General notification queue implementation of the Linux kernel, leading to a
use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2022-1882)

Pawan Kumar Gupta, Alyssa Milburn, Amit Peled, Shani Rehana, Nir Shildan
and Ariel Sabba discovered that some Intel processors with Enhanced
Indirect Branch Restricted Speculation (eIBRS) did not properly handle RET
instructions after a VM exits. A local attacker could potentially use this
to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2022-26373)

Eric Biggers discovered that a use-after-free vulnerability existed in the
io_uring subsystem in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could possibly use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-3176)

It was discovered that the Netlink Transformation (XFRM) subsystem in the
Linux kernel contained a reference counting error. A local attacker could
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2022-36879)

Jann Horn discovered that the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle TLB flush operations in some situations. A local attacker
in a guest VM could use this to cause a denial of service (guest crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code in the guest kernel. (CVE-2022-39189)
