Ryan Hall discovered that the Intel 700 Series Ethernet Controllers driver in the Linux kernel did not properly deallocate memory in some conditions. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (kernel memory exhaustion). (CVE-2019-0148) It was discovered that the console keyboard driver in the Linux kernel contained a race condition. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2020-25656) Minh Yuan discovered that the tty driver in the Linux kernel contained race conditions when handling fonts. A local attacker could possibly use this to expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2020-25668) Jinoh Kang discovered that the Xen event channel infrastructure in the Linux kernel contained a race condition. An attacker in guest could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (dom0 crash). (CVE-2020-27675) Minh Yuan discovered that the framebuffer console driver in the Linux kernel did not properly handle fonts in some conditions. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly expose sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2020-28974) It was discovered that Power 9 processors could be coerced to expose information from the L1 cache in certain situations. A local attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2020-4788)
