Details

David Bouman discovered that the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel
did not properly validate passed user register indices. A local attacker
could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-1015)

David Bouman and Billy Jheng Bing Jhong discovered that a race condition
existed in the io_uring subsystem 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-2022-2602)

Sönke Huster discovered that an integer overflow vulnerability existed
in the WiFi driver stack in the Linux kernel, leading to a buffer
overflow. A physically proximate attacker could use this to cause an
denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.(CVE-2022-41674)

Sönke Huster discovered that the WiFi driver stack in the Linux kernel did
not properly perform reference counting in some situations, leading to a
use-after-free vulnerability. A physically proximate attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-42720)

Sönke Huster discovered that the WiFi driver stack in the Linux kernel did
not properly handle BSSID/SSID lists in some situations. A physically
proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (infinite
loop). (CVE-2022-42721)

Sönke Huster discovered that the WiFi driver stack in the Linux kernel
contained a NULL pointer dereference vulnerability in certain situations. A
physically proximate attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash). (CVE-2022-42722)
