Details

It was discovered that the XFS file system implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly validate meta data in some circumstances. An
attacker could use this to construct a malicious XFS image that, when
mounted, could cause a denial of service. (CVE-2020-12655)

It was discovered that the bcache subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly release a lock in some error conditions. A local attacker could
possibly use this to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2020-12771)

Kyungtae Kim discovered that the USB testing driver in the Linux kernel did
not properly deallocate memory on disconnect events. A physically proximate
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (memory exhaustion).
(CVE-2020-15393)
