Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Linux kernel that may lead to a privilege escalation, denial of service, or information leak.

CVE-2019-2215

The syzkaller tool discovered a use-after-free vulnerability in
the Android binder driver.  A local user on a system with this
driver enabled could use this to cause a denial of service (memory
corruption or crash) or possibly for privilege escalation.
However, this driver is not enabled on Debian packaged kernels.

CVE-2019-10220

Various developers and researchers found that if a crafted file-
system or malicious file server presented a directory with
filenames including a '/' character, this could confuse and
possibly defeat security checks in applications that read the
directory.

The kernel will now return an error when reading such a directory,
rather than passing the invalid filenames on to user-space.

CVE-2019-14895, CVE-2019-14901

ADLab of Venustech discovered potential heap buffer overflows in
the mwifiex wifi driver.  On systems using this driver, a
malicious Wireless Access Point or adhoc/P2P peer could use these
to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or
possibly for remote code execution.

CVE-2019-14896, CVE-2019-14897

ADLab of Venustech discovered potential heap and stack buffer
overflows in the libertas wifi driver.  On systems using this
driver, a malicious Wireless Access Point or adhoc/P2P peer could
use these to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or
crash) or possibly for remote code execution.

CVE-2019-15098

did not properly validate incoming IR packets, which could lead to
a heap buffer over-read.  An attacker able to add USB devices
could use this to cause a denial of service (BUG/oops) or to read
sensitive information from kernel memory.

CVE-2019-16746

It was discovered that the wifi stack did not validate the content
of beacon heads provided by user-space for use on a wifi interface
in Access Point mode, which could lead to a heap buffer overflow.
A local user permitted to configure a wifi interface could use
this to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or
possibly for privilege escalation.

CVE-2019-17052, CVE-2019-17053, CVE-2019-17054, CVE-2019-17055, CVE-2019-17056

Ori Nimron reported that various network protocol implementations
- AX.25, IEEE 802.15.4, Appletalk, ISDN, and NFC - allowed all
users to create raw sockets.  A local user could use this to send
arbitrary packets on networks using those protocols.

CVE-2019-17133

Nicholas Waisman reported that the wifi stack did not valdiate
received SSID information before copying it, which could lead to a
buffer overflow if it is not validated by the driver or firmware.
A malicious Wireless Access Point might be able to use this to
cause a denial of service (memory corruption or crash) or for
remote code execution.

CVE-2019-17666

Nicholas Waisman reported that the rtlwifi wifi drivers did not
properly validate received P2P information, leading to a buffer
overflow.  A malicious P2P peer could use this to cause a denial
of service (memory corruption or crash) or for remote code
execution.
