USN-5113-1: Linux kernel vulnerabilities

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the Atheros Ath9k WiFi
driver in the Linux kernel. An attacker could possibly use this to expose
sensitive information (WiFi network traffic). (CVE-2020-3702)

Alois Wohlschlager discovered that the overlay file system in the Linux
kernel did not restrict private clones in some situations. An attacker
could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2021-3732)

It was discovered that the btrfs file system in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle removing a non-existent device id. An attacker with
CAP_SYS_ADMIN could use this to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2021-3739)

It was discovered that the Qualcomm IPC Router protocol implementation in
the Linux kernel did not properly validate metadata in some situations. A
local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash)
or expose sensitive information. (CVE-2021-3743)

It was discovered that the virtual terminal (vt) device implementation in
the Linux kernel contained a race condition in its ioctl handling that lead
to an out-of-bounds read vulnerability. A local attacker could possibly use
this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2021-3753)

It was discovered that the BPF subsystem in the Linux kernel contained an
integer overflow in its hash table implementation. A local attacker could
use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-38166)

It was discovered that the ext4 file system in the Linux kernel contained a
race condition when writing xattrs to an inode. A local attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service or possibly gain administrative
privileges. (CVE-2021-40490)

It was discovered that the 6pack network protocol driver in the Linux
kernel did not properly perform validation checks. A privileged attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-42008)
