Package        : linux
CVE ID         : CVE-2020-36311 CVE-2021-3609 CVE-2021-33909 CVE-2021-34693

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that
may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service or information


    A flaw was discovered in the KVM subsystem for AMD CPUs, allowing an
    attacker to cause a denial of service by triggering destruction of a
    large SEV VM.


    Norbert Slusarek reported a race condition vulnerability in the CAN
    BCM networking protocol, allowing a local attacker to escalate


    The Qualys Research Labs discovered a size_t-to-int conversion
    vulnerability in the Linux kernel's filesystem layer. An
    unprivileged local attacker able to create, mount, and then delete a
    deep directory structure whose total path length exceeds 1GB, can
    take advantage of this flaw for privilege escalation.

    Details can be found in the Qualys advisory at


    Norbert Slusarek discovered an information leak in the CAN BCM
    networking protocol. A local attacker can take advantage of this
    flaw to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory.

For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in
version 4.19.194-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your linux packages.
