USN-6680-2: Linux kernel vulnerabilities

Ubuntu Security Advisory

黄思聪 discovered that the NFC Controller Interface (NCI) implementation in
the Linux kernel did not properly handle certain memory allocation failure
conditions, leading to a null pointer dereference vulnerability. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash).
(CVE-2023-46343)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the Bluetooth subsystem
of the Linux kernel, leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-51779)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the Rose X.25 protocol
implementation in the Linux kernel, leading to a use-after- free
vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-51782)

Alon Zahavi discovered that the NVMe-oF/TCP subsystem of the Linux kernel
did not properly handle connect command payloads in certain situations,
leading to an out-of-bounds read vulnerability. A remote attacker could use
this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2023-6121)

Jann Horn discovered that the io_uring subsystem in the Linux kernel
contained an out-of-bounds access vulnerability. A local attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2023-6560)

Dan Carpenter discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
did not store data in properly sized memory locations. A local user could
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2024-0607)

Supraja Sridhara, Benedict Schlüter, Mark Kuhne, Andrin Bertschi, and
Shweta Shinde discovered that the Confidential Computing framework in the
Linux kernel for x86 platforms did not properly handle 32-bit emulation on
TDX and SEV. An attacker with access to the VMM could use this to cause a
denial of service (guest crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2024-25744)
