A privilege escalation vulnerability was found in bash in the way it dropped privileges when started with an effective user id not equal to the real user id. Bash may be vulnerable to this flaw if the setuid permission is set and the owner of the bash program itself is a non-root user. A local attacker could exploit this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system

A flaw was found in samba. Spaces used in a string around a domain name (DN), while supposed to be ignored, can cause invalid DN strings with spaces to instead write a zero-byte into out-of-bounds memory, resulting in a crash. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability (CVE-2020-27840).
