Details

It was discovered that the LIO SCSI target implementation in the Linux
kernel performed insufficient identifier checking in certain XCOPY
requests. An attacker with access to at least one LUN in a multiple
backstore environment could use this to expose sensitive information or
modify data. (CVE-2020-28374)

Wen Xu discovered that the XFS filesystem implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly track inode validations. An attacker could use this
to construct a malicious XFS image that, when mounted, could cause a denial
of service (system crash). (CVE-2018-13093)

It was discovered that the btrfs file system implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly validate file system metadata in some situations.
An attacker could use this to construct a malicious btrfs image that, when
mounted, could cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2019-19813,
CVE-2019-19816)

Bodong Zhao discovered a use-after-free in the Sun keyboard driver
implementation in the Linux kernel. A local attacker could use this to
cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2020-25669)
