Kernel Live Patch Security Notice LSN-0091-1

Kernel Live Patch Security Notice LSN-0091-1
Posted Feb 15, 2023
Authored by Benjamin M. Romer

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the memory address space accounting implementation in the Linux kernel, leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. Sonke Huster discovered that a use-after-free vulnerability existed in the WiFi driver stack in the Linux kernel. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.

Details

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the memory address
space accounting implementation in the Linux kernel, leading to a
use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2022-41222)

Sönke Huster discovered that a use-after-free vulnerability existed in
the WiFi driver stack in the Linux kernel. A physically proximate
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or
possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-42719)
