    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in the kernel.
    
    Software Description:
    - linux: Linux kernel
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that a heap-based buffer overflow existed in the Marvell
    WiFi-Ex Driver for the Linux kernel. A physically proximate attacker could
    use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
    arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-14895)
    
    It was discovered that a heap-based buffer overflow existed in the Marvell
    Libertas WLAN Driver for the Linux kernel. A physically proximate attacker
    could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly
    execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-14896)

    use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
    arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-14901)
    
    Jann Horn discovered that the OverlayFS and ShiftFS Drivers in the Linux
    kernel did not properly handle reference counting during memory mapping
    operations when used in conjunction with AUFS. A local attacker could use
    this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute
    arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-15794)
