  • kernel: fget: check that the fd still exists after getting a ref to it (cve-2021-4083)
  • kernel: possible privileges escalation due to missing tlb flush (cve-2022-0330)
  • kernel: cgroups v1 release_agent feature may allow privilege escalation (cve-2022-0492)
  • kernel: failing usercopy allows for use-after-free exploitation (cve-2022-22942)
