Severity: Low

CVSSv3: 3.5 [CVSS:3.0/AV:P/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:C/C:L/I:L/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-9506

CWE-ID: CWE-310 - Cryptographic Issues

Description

The vulnerability allows an attacker to gain access to sensitive information.

The vulnerability exists due to a weakness in Bluetooth Basic Rate/Enhanced Data Rate (BR/EDR) protocol core specification that allows an attacker with close proximity to the affected system to perform a man-in-the-middle attack on an encrypted Bluetooth connection.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability may allow an attacker to gain access to sensitive information or perform unauthorized actions.

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-1125

CWE-ID: CWE-200 - Information Exposure

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to gain access to potentially sensitive information and elevate privileges on the system.

The vulnerability exists when certain central processing units (CPU) speculatively access memory. A local user can gain unauthorized access to sensitive information and elevate privileges on the system.

This issue is a variant of the Spectre Variant 1 speculative execution side channel vulnerability that leverages SWAPGS instructions to bypass KPTI/KVA mitigations.
