Valentina Palmiotti discovered that the io_uring subsystem in the Linux kernel could be coerced to free adjacent memory. A local attacker could use this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-41073) Ofek Kirzner, Adam Morrison, Benedict Schlueter, and Piotr Krysiuk discovered that the BPF verifier in the Linux kernel missed possible mispredicted branches due to type confusion, allowing a side-channel attack. An attacker could use this to expose sensitive information. (CVE-2021-33624) Benedict Schlueter discovered that the BPF subsystem in the Linux kernel...
