* CVE-2018-7995: Denial-of-service when accessing CPU MCE sysfs entries.
A race condition when accessing CPU Machine Check sysfs entries could
lead to a kernel panic. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause a
* CVE-2018-9516: Denial-of-service in Bluetooth HIDP debug events.
Missing bounds checks in the Bluetooth HIDP debugfs functions could
result in an out of bounds access and kernel crash, triggerable by a
* CVE-2018-9363: Remote code execution in Bluetooth HIDP driver.
An integer overflow in the Bluetooth HIDP driver could result in a
buffer overflow and memory corruption. A remote user could use this
flaw to trigger a denial of service or potentially, gain code execution.
* CVE-2018-1092: NULL pointer dereference when using unallocated root directory on ext4 filesystem.
A missing check when using unallocated root directory on ext4 filesystem
could lead to a NULL pointer dereference. A local attacker could mount a
crafted ext4 filesystem and cause a denial-of-service.
* CVE-2017-9725: Memory corruption in contiguous memory allocation.
A type conversion error when allocating contiguous memory for Direct
Memory Access can result in memory corruption outside of the allocated
memory. A local user could use this flaw to cause undefined behavior or
a Kernel crash.
* CVE-2018-18255: Integer overflow when setting allocated CPU time for perf events.
A missing check on user input when setting allocated CPU time for perf
events could lead to an integer overflow. A local attacker could use
this flaw to cause a denial-of-service.
* CVE-2018-18221: Denial-of-service using mlockall and munlockall syscalls.
The mlockall and munlockall syscalls contain unmatched changes to the
NR_MLOCK accounting value. By repeatedly calling these syscalls, a
malicious user can cause a denial-of-service.
