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)

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-2019-14897)

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-2019-14901)

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)
