Description

Details for this vulnerability have not been published by NIST at this point. Descriptions from software vendor advisories for this issue are provided below.

From USN-5415-1:

Jeremy Cline discovered a use-after-free in the nouveau graphics driver of the Linux kernel during device removal. A privileged or physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2020-27820)

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)

David Bouman discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did not initialize memory in some situations. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2022-1016)

It was discovered that the MMC/SD subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly handle read errors from SD cards in certain situations. An attacker could possibly use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2022-20008)

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 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)

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
