exploited by a malicious local attacker to cause a denial-of-service or
to aid in another type of attack.

* CVE-2023-32233: Use-after-free in Netfilter nf_tables packet classification framework.

Incorrect handling of anonymous sets in the Netfilter nf_tables packet
classification framework can lead to a use-after-free. This can allow a
local unprivileged user to perform arbitrary access to kernel memory and
escalate privileges.

Orabug: 35382084

* Note: Oracle will not provide a zero-downtime update for CVE-2023-1670.

Oracle has determined that the vulnerability does not affect a running
system because the vulnerable code is not compiled.

CVE-2023-1670: Use-after free in Xircom PCMCIA ethernet driver.

A race condition when attempting to unload the Xircom ethernet driver
can lead to a use-after-free. This flaw could be exploited by a local
attacker to cause a denial-of-service or to escalate their privileges.

* Note: Oracle will not provide a zero-downtime update for CVE-2022-1679.

Oracle has determined that the vulnerability does not affect a running
system because the vulnerable code is not compiled.

CVE-2022-1679: Use-after-free in Atheros ath9k wireless device driver.

Improper handling of some error conditions in Atheros ath9k wireless
device driver could lead to a use-after-free. A local user could use
this flaw to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code.

* Note: Oracle will not provide a zero-downtime update for CVE-2023-25012.

Oracle has determined that the vulnerability does not affect a running
system because the vulnerable code is not compiled.

CVE-2023-25012: Use-after-free in HID driver for BigBen Interactive Kids' gamepad.

Insufficient locking in the bigben HID driver can allow a malicious USB
device which advertises itself as a BigBen device to trigger a
use-after-free. This may allow a local user to cause memory corruption.

* Note: Oracle will not provide a zero-downtime update for CVE-2023-2985.

Oracle has determined that the vulnerability does not affect a running
system because the vulnerable code is not compiled.

allow a malicious USB device which advertises itself as an Asus device to
trigger a use-after-free. This may allow a local user to cause memory
corruption.

* CVE-2023-1076: Permission bypass in tun/tap sockets.

Incorrect initialization in the tun/tap socket code could allow sockets
to be treated incorrectly in filtering and routing decisions. This could
allow bypassing of network filters.

or cause undefined behavior.

* CVE-2023-2194: Insufficient input validation in APM X-Gene SoC I2C SLIMpro.

Insufficient user input validation in the APM X-Gene SoC I2C SLIMpro device
driver could allow writing beyond the end of a buffer. This could allow a
local privileged user to crash the system or execute incorrect code.

* CVE-2023-0590: Use-after-free in network scheduler.
