Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 6 vulnerabilities.

1) Use-after-free

EUVDB-ID: #VU65318

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1: 4.8 [CVSS:3.1/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-2318

CWE-ID: CWE-416 - Use After Free

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to perform a denial of service attack.

The vulnerability exists due to a use-after-free error caused by timer handler in net/rose/rose_timer.c of linux. A local user can exploit the vulnerability to perform a denial of service attack.

CVSSv3.1: 4.8 [CVSS:3.1/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-33741

CWE-ID: CWE-200 - Information Exposure

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to gain access to potentially sensitive information.

The vulnerability exists due to granularity of the grant table doesn't allow sharing less than a 4K page, leading to unrelated data residing in the same 4K page as data shared with a backend being accessible by such backend. A local user can gain unauthorized access to sensitive information on the system.

6) Resource management error

EUVDB-ID: #VU65844

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1: 5.7 [CVSS:3.1/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:N/I:N/A:H/E:U/RL:O/RC:C]

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-33744

CWE-ID: CWE-399 - Resource Management Errors

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows an attacker to perform a denial of service (DoS) attack.

The vulnerability exists due to improper management of foreign mappings performed by rbtree when mapping pages of Arm guests. An unprivileged Arm guest can cause inconsistencies of the rbtree via PV devices, which can lead to denial of service of dom0 and cause crashes or the inability to perform further mappings of other guests' memory pages.
