Details

It was discovered that the Marvell WiFi-Ex device driver in the Linux
kernel did not properly validate ad-hoc SSIDs. A local attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2020-36158)

Ryota Shiga discovered that the sockopt BPF hooks in the Linux kernel could
allow a user space program to probe for valid kernel addresses. A local
attacker could use this to ease exploitation of another kernel
vulnerability. (CVE-2021-20239)

It was discovered that the priority inheritance futex implementation in the
Linux kernel contained a race condition, 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-2021-3347)

吴异 discovered that the NFS implementation in the Linux kernel did not
properly prevent access outside of an NFS export that is a subdirectory of
a file system. An attacker could possibly use this to bypass NFS access
restrictions. (CVE-2021-3178)
