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
leaks.

CVE-2020-36311

    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.

CVE-2021-3609

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

CVE-2021-33909

    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
    https://www.qualys.com/2021/07/20/cve-2021-33909/sequoia-local-privilege-escalation-linux.txt

CVE-2021-34693

    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.
