Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 7 vulnerabilities.

1) Information disclosure

EUVDB-ID: #VU64259

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-0494

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 excessive data output in the scsi_ioctl() function in drivers/scsi/scsi_ioctl.c in the Linux kernel. A local user with a special user privilege (CAP_SYS_ADMIN or CAP_SYS_RAWIO) can gain unauthorized access to sensitive information on the system.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

2) Information disclosure

EUVDB-ID: #VU63388

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-1353

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 excessive data output by the application in the pfkey_register function in net/key/af_key.c in the Linux kernel. A local user can gain unauthorized access to kernel memory, leading to a system crash or a leak of internal kernel information.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.

3) Double Free

EUVDB-ID: #VU66397

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2022-2588

CWE-ID: CWE-415 - Double Free

Exploit availability: Yes

Description

The vulnerability allows a local user to escalate privileges on the system.

The vulnerability exists due to a double free error within the network packet scheduler implementation in the route4_change() function in Linux kernel when removing all references to a route filter before freeing it. A local user can run a specially crafted program to crash the kernel or execute arbitrary code.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.
