DESCRIPTION

* CVE-2023-35788: Out-of-bounds memory access in Flower Packet Classifier.

Failure to sanity check packet size in the Flower Packet Classifier when
handling TCA_FLOWER_KEY_ENC_OPTS_GENEVE packets may lead to an
out-of-bounds memory write. A malicious remote user could use this flaw
to cause a denial-of-service or escalate privileges.

* CVE-2023-35001: Out-of-bounds memory access in Netfilter nf_tables packet classification framework.

A flaw in netfilter nf_tables when evaluating byteorder expressions may
lead to an out-of-bounds memory read or write. A local user with the
CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could use this flaw to escalate privileges.

* CVE-2023-4004: Privilege escalation in netfilter PIPAPO.

A use-after-free when removing a policy from the netfilter Pile Packet
Policies subsystem might result in a denial-of-service or arbitrary code
execution.

* CVE-2023-3776: Use-after-free in netfilter classifier due to refcount error.

Incorrect refcounting in the netfilter classifier might result in
use-after-free, potentially allowing an attacker to cause a
denial-of-service.

* CVE-2023-3090: Stack overflow in ipvlan driver during transmit operation.

A failure to zero out a buffer before use can lead to an out-of-bounds
write to the current process's stack. This flaw could be exploited by a
local attack to cause a denial of service, or other undefined behavior.

* CVE-2023-2002: Insufficient capability check in the Bluetooth HCI sockets subsystem.

An insufficient capability check in the Bluetooth HCI sockets subsystem can
allow an unprivileged program to mark a socket as trusted. This can allow
escalation of privileges, denial-of-service and information leak.
