DESCRIPTION

* CVE-2023-26545: Stale pointer in MultiProtocol Label Switching subsystem.

Incorrect error handling in the MultiProtocol Label Switching subsystem
(MPLS) during the renaming of a device can lead to double free. This could
allow a local user to write to arbitrary memory locations or cause
denial-of-service.

* CVE-2023-28772: Buffer overflow in seq_buf helper.

A missing check in the seq_buf helper to write raw memory into a buffer
in ASCII hex could lead to a buffer overflow. A local attacker could use
this flaw to cause a denial-of-service.

* CVE-2023-23559: Buffer overflow in driver for RNDIS-based wireless USB devices.

A buffer overflow exists in the driver code for wireless USB devices based on
