Details

Ke Sun, Alyssa Milburn, Henrique Kawakami, Emma Benoit, Igor Chervatyuk,
Lisa Aichele, and Thais Moreira Hamasaki discovered that the Spectre
Variant 2 mitigations for AMD processors on Linux were insufficient in some
situations. A local attacker could possibly use this to expose sensitive
information. (CVE-2021-26401)

Demi Marie Obenour and Simon Gaiser discovered that several Xen para-
virtualization device frontends did not properly restrict the access rights
of device backends. An attacker could possibly use a malicious Xen backend
to gain access to memory pages of a guest VM or cause a denial of service
in the guest. (CVE-2022-23036, CVE-2022-23037, CVE-2022-23038,
CVE-2022-23039, CVE-2022-23040, CVE-2022-23042)

It was discovered that the USB Gadget file system interface 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-2022-24958)

It was discovered that the USB gadget subsystem in the Linux kernel did not
properly validate interface descriptor requests. An attacker could possibly
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2022-25258)

It was discovered that the Remote NDIS (RNDIS) USB gadget implementation in
the Linux kernel did not properly validate the size of the RNDIS_MSG_SET
command. An attacker could possibly use this to expose sensitive
information (kernel memory). (CVE-2022-25375)

It was discovered that the ST21NFCA NFC driver in the Linux kernel did not
properly validate the size of certain data in EVT_TRANSACTION events. A
physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-26490)

It was discovered that the USB SR9700 ethernet device driver for the Linux
kernel did not properly validate the length of requests from the device. A
physically proximate attacker could possibly use this to expose sensitive
information (kernel memory). (CVE-2022-26966)

It was discovered that the Xilinx USB2 device gadget driver in the Linux
kernel did not properly validate endpoint indices from the host. A
physically proximate attacker could possibly use this to cause a denial of
service (system crash). (CVE-2022-27223)
