Kernel Live Patch Security Notice LSN-0087-1

Kernel Live Patch Security Notice LSN-0087-1
Posted Jun 20, 2022
Authored by Benjamin M. Romer

Aaron Adams discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly handle the removal of stateful expressions in some situations, leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute arbitrary code. Ziming Zhang discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly validate sets with multiple ranged fields. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code.

Details

Aaron Adams discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
did not properly handle the removal of stateful expressions in some
situations, leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. A local attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-1966)

Ziming Zhang discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
did not properly validate sets with multiple ranged fields. A local
attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-1972)
