CVE-2023-5178: CVSSv3.1: 9.8

A use-after-free vulnerability was found in drivers/nvme/target/tcp.c` in `nvmet_tcp_free_crypto` due to a logical bug in the NVMe/TCP subsystem in the Linux kernel. This issue may allow a malicious user to cause a use-after-free and double-free problem, which may permit remote code execution or lead to local privilege escalation.


CVE-2019-15505: CVSSv3.1: 9.8

drivers/media/usb/dvb-usb/technisat-usb2.c in the Linux kernel through 5.2.9 has an out-of-bounds read via crafted USB device traffic (which may be remote via usbip or usbredir).


CVE-2023-25775: CVSS 9.8

Improper access control in the Intel(R) Ethernet Controller RDMA driver for Linux before version 1.9.30 may allow an unauthenticated user to potentially enable escalation of privilege via network access.
