DESCRIPTION

* CVE-2022-3640: Use-after-free in Bluetooth subsystem.

A logic flaw in receive data path of the Bluetooth subsystem could
result in a use-after-free. A local user could use this flaw to cause
a denial-of-service or execute arbitrary code.

* CVE-2022-3628: Code execution in Broadcom FullMAC USB WiFi driver.

A missing sanity check when setting up the Broadcom FullMAC USB WiFi
driver could result in out-of-bounds access. A physically proximate
user could use this flaw to craft a malicious USB device and cause
a denial-of-service or execute arbitrary code.

* CVE-2022-3524: Memory-leak in IPv6 networking.

A race condition in IPv6 networking when converting an IPv6 socket into
IPv4 could lead to a memory-leak. A local user could use this flaw to
exhaust the system's memory and cause denial-of-service.

Orabug: 34719346

* CVE-2022-3564: Use-after-free in Bluetooth L2CAP.

A race condition in Bluetooth L2CAP when a socket buffer is queued and
dequeued by two flows running in parallel can lead to a use-after-free.
A remote attacker could use this flaw for a denial-of-service or
for privilege escalation.

* CVE-2022-42896: Use-after-free in Bluetooth L2CAP.

A flaw in Bluetooth L2CAP protocol when accepting incoming connection
requests could lead to a use-after-free. A remote attacker could use
this flaw for a denial-of-service or for privilege escalation.

* CVE-2022-42895: Information disclosure in Bluetooth subsystem.

A missing sanity check when parsing a configuration request in Bluetooth
L2CAP implementation could result in out-of-bounds memory access.
A physically proximate attacker could use this flaw for information
disclosure.

* CVE-2020-36385: Use-after-free in RDMA communication manager due to a race condition.

A race condition could happen in RDMA communication manager leading
to a use-after-free when closing UCMA file. A local user could use
this flaw for a denial-of-service or code execution.

Orabug: 34106064

* Filesystem corruption in XFS metadata processing.

A logic error when performing certain operations on XFS metadata can
lead to filesystem corruption, and a potential denial-of-service.
