Details

Kiyin (尹亮) discovered that the NFC LLCP protocol implementation in the
Linux kernel contained a reference counting error. A local attacker could
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2020-25670)

Kiyin (尹亮) discovered that the NFC LLCP protocol implementation in the
Linux kernel did not properly deallocate memory in certain error
situations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(memory exhaustion). (CVE-2020-25671, CVE-2020-25672)

Kiyin (尹亮) discovered that the NFC LLCP protocol implementation in the
Linux kernel did not properly handle error conditions in some situations,
leading to an infinite loop. A local attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service. (CVE-2020-25673)

Piotr Krysiuk and Benedict Schlueter discovered that the eBPF
implementation in the Linux kernel performed out of bounds speculation on
pointer arithmetic. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive
information. (CVE-2021-29155)

Reiji Watanabe discovered that the KVM VMX implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly prevent user space from tampering with an array
index value, leading to a potential out-of-bounds write. A local attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-3501)
