Details

USN-5267-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux kernel. Unfortunately,
that update introduced a regression that caused the kernel to freeze
when accessing CIFS shares in some situations. This update fixes
the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

It was discovered that the Bluetooth subsystem in the Linux kernel
contained 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-2021-3640)

Likang Luo discovered that a race condition existed in the Bluetooth
subsystem of the Linux kernel, 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-2021-3752)

Luo Likang discovered that the FireDTV Firewire driver in the Linux kernel
did not properly perform bounds checking in some situations. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-42739)
