QID 240115: Red Hat Update for kernel (RHSA-2022:0620)

the kernel packages contain the linux kernel, the core of any linux operating system.

Security Fix(es):
  • kernel: use after free in eventpoll.c may lead to escalation of privilege (cve-2020-0466)
  • kernel: use after free in unix_gc() which could result in a local privilege escalation (cve-2021-0920)
  • kernel: xfs: raw block device data leak in xfs_ioc_allocsp ioctl (cve-2021-4155)
  • kernel: possible privileges escalation due to missing tlb flush (cve-2022-0330)
  • kernel: failing usercopy allows for use-after-free exploitation (cve-2022-22942)
  • kernel: out of bounds write in hid-multitouch.c may lead to escalation of privilege (cve-2020-0465)
  • kernel: double free in bluetooth subsystem when the hci device initialization fails (cve-2021-3564)
  • kernel: use-after-free in function hci_sock_bound_ioctl() (cve-2021-3573)
  • kernel: possible use-after-free in bluetooth module (cve-2021-3752)
