    Package : linux
    CVE ID : CVE-2020-36310 CVE-2022-0001 CVE-2022-0002 CVE-2022-0487

    Debian Bug : 990279

    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that
    may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service or information


    A flaw was discovered in the KVM implementation for AMD processors,
    which could lead to an infinite loop. A malicious VM guest could
    exploit this to cause a denial of service.

    CVE-2022-0001 (INTEL-SA-00598)

    Researchers at VUSec discovered that the Branch History Buffer in
    Intel processors can be exploited to create information side-
    channels with speculative execution. This issue is similar to
    Spectre variant 2, but requires additional mitigations on some

    This can be exploited to obtain sensitive information from a
    different security context, such as from user-space to the kernel,
    or from a KVM guest to the kernel.

    CVE-2022-0002 (INTEL-SA-00598)

    This is a similar issue to CVE-2022-0001, but covers exploitation
    within a security context, such as from JIT-compiled code in a
    sandbox to hosting code in the same process.

    This is partly mitigated by disabling eBPF for unprivileged users
    with the sysctl: kernel.unprivileged_bpf_disabled=2. This is
    already the default in Debian 11 "bullseye".


    A use-after-free was discovered in the MOXART SD/MMC Host Controller
    support driver. This flaw does not impact the Debian binary packages
    as CONFIG_MMC_MOXART is not set.


    Yiqi Sun and Kevin Wang reported that the cgroup-v1 subsystem does
    not properly restrict access to the release-agent feature. A local
    user can take advantage of this flaw for privilege escalation and
    bypass of namespace isolation.


    butt3rflyh4ck discovered a NULL pointer dereference in the UDF
    filesystem. A local user that can mount a specially crafted UDF
    image can use this flaw to crash the system.


    Nick Gregory reported a heap out-of-bounds write flaw in the
    netfilter subsystem. A user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could
    use this for denial of service or possibly for privilege escalation.

    For the stable distribution (bullseye), these problems have been fixed
    in version 5.10.103-1. This update additionally includes many more
    bug fixes from stable updates 5.10.93-5.10.103 inclusive.

    We recommend that you upgrade your linux packages.
