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

CVE-2023-2156

It was discovered that a flaw in the handling of the RPL protocol
may allow an unauthenticated remote attacker to cause a denial of
service if RPL is enabled (not by default in Debian).

CVE-2023-31248

Mingi Cho discovered a use-after-free flaw in the Netfilter
nf_tables implementation when using nft_chain_lookup_byid, which may
result in local privilege escalation for a user with the
CAP_NET_ADMIN capability in any user or network namespace.

CVE-2023-35001

Tanguy DUBROCA discovered an out-of-bounds reads and write flaw in
the Netfilter nf_tables implementation when processing an
nft_byteorder expression, which may result in local privilege

or network namespace.

For the oldstable distribution (bullseye), these problems have been fixed
in version 5.10.179-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your linux packages.
