Details

Ilja Van Sprundel discovered that the SCTP implementation in the Linux
kernel did not properly perform size validations on incoming packets in
some situations. An attacker could possibly use this to expose sensitive
information (kernel memory). (CVE-2021-3655)

It was discovered that the AMD Cryptographic Coprocessor (CCP) driver in
the Linux kernel did not properly deallocate memory in some error
conditions. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(memory exhaustion). (CVE-2021-3744, CVE-2021-3764)

It was discovered that the Aspeed Low Pin Count (LPC) Bus Controller
implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly perform boundary checks
in some situations, allowing out-of-bounds write access. A local attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code. In Ubuntu, this issue only affected systems running
armhf kernels. (CVE-2021-42252)

Jann Horn discovered that the SELinux subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle subjective credentials for tasks in some situations. On
systems where SELinux has been enabled, a local attacker could possibly use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2021-43057)
