DESCRIPTION

* CVE-2022-0812: Information leak in NFS RDMA transport.

The RDMA transport method for NFS RPCs fails to properly calculate the
size of its headers. This could result in uninitialized kernel data
being inadvertently transmitted over the network.

* CVE-2021-33656: Out-of-bounds write access in Virtual Terminal.

A flaw in ioctls of Virtual Terminal could result in out-of-bounds write
access when setting font with malicious data by some ioctl commands.
A local user could use this flaw for a denial-of-service or code
execution.

* CVE-2021-33655: Out-of-bounds write when user specifies invalid font size.

A failure to check if a user-specified font size is valid in the fbcon
driver can lead to an out-of-bounds write. A malicious local user could
exploit this flaw to cause a denial-of-service, or to aid in another
type of attack.

* CVE-2022-21546: Denial-of-service in SCSI write path.

Improper handling of certain types of writes to a SCSI device can
lead to a kernel crash. A local attacker could exploit this flaw to
cause a denial-of-service.
