* CVE-2022-22942: Use-after-free in VMware Virtual GPU driver.

Improper error handling flaw in VMware Virtual GPU driver could lead
to a stale entry to be left in the file descriptor table resulting in
use-after-free. Unprivileged, local users could use this flaw in order
to gain access to files opened by other processes on the system through
a dangling file pointer and cause information disclosure or privilege

* CVE-2021-22600: Privilege escalation in Packet protocol subsystem due to double-free.

A logic flaw causing a double-free in Packet protocol subsystem could
be exploited by a local user through crafted syscalls. A local user
could use this flaw for a denial-of-service or privilege escalation.

* Don't flush cache if hardware enforces cache coherency across encryption domains.

In some hardware implementations, coherency between the encrypted and
unencrypted mappings of the same physical page in a VM is enforced. In
such a system, it is not required for software to flush the VM's page
from all CPU caches in the system prior to changing the value of the
C-bit for the page.

* CVE-2020-36516: Multiple vulnerabilities in TCP/IP protocol.

The mixed IPID assignment method with the hash-based IPID assignment
policy could allow an attacker to perform a Man-in-the-Middle Attack.
A remote attacker could use this flaw to pretend to be the sender of
the TCP/IP packet for an existing TCP/IP session and inject data into
the TCP session or terminate that session.
