CVE-2020-12653 (v3: 7.8) 5 May 2020
An issue was found in Linux kernel before 5.5.4. The mwifiex_cmd_append_vsie_tlv() function in drivers/net/wireless/marvell/mwifiex/scan.c allows local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service because of an incorrect memcpy and buffer overflow, aka CID-b70261a288ea.
CVE-2020-8828 (v3: 8.8) 8 Apr 2020
As of v1.5.0, the default admin password is set to the argocd-server pod name. For insiders with access to the cluster or logs, this issue could be abused for privilege escalation, as Argo has privileged roles. A malicious insider is the most realistic threat, but pod names are not meant to be kept secret and could wind up just about anywhere.
CVE-2020-1989 (v3: 7.8) 8 Apr 2020
An incorrect privilege assignment vulnerability when writing application-specific files in the Palo Alto Networks Global Protect Agent for Linux on ARM platform allows a local authenticated user to gain root privileges on the system. This issue affects Palo Alto Networks Global Protect Agent for Linux 5.0 versions before 5.0.8; 5.1 versions before 5.1.1.
CVE-2020-8635 (v3: 7.8) 7 Mar 2020
Wing FTP Server v6.2.3 for Linux, macOS, and Solaris sets insecure permissions on installation directories and configuration files. This allows local users to arbitrarily create FTP users with full privileges, and escalate privileges within the operating system by modifying system files.

2019

CVE-2019-16155 (v3: 7.1) 7 Feb 2020
A privilege escalation vulnerability in FortiClient for Linux 6.2.1 and below may allow a user with low privilege to overwrite system files as root with arbitrary content through system backup file via specially crafted "BackupConfig" type IPC client requests to the fctsched process. Further more, FortiClient for Linux 6.2.2 and below allow low privilege user write the system backup file under root privilege through GUI thus can cause root system file overwrite.
CVE-2019-15711 (v3: 7.8) 6 Feb 2020
A privilege escalation vulnerability in FortiClient for Linux 6.2.1 and below may allow an user with low privilege to run system commands under root privilege via injecting specially crafted "ExportLogs" type IPC client requests to the fctsched process.
CVE-2019-3467 (v3: 7.8) 23 Dec 2019
Debian-edu-config all versions < 2.11.10, a set of configuration files used for Debian Edu, and debian-lan-config < 0.26, configured too permissive ACLs for the Kerberos admin server, which allowed password changes for other Kerberos user principals.
CVE-2019-19241 (v3: 7.8) 17 Dec 2019
In the Linux kernel before 5.4.2, the io_uring feature leads to requests that inadvertently have UID 0 and full capabilities, aka CID-181e448d8709. This is related to fs/io-wq.c, fs/io_uring.c, and net/socket.c. For example, an attacker can bypass intended restrictions on adding an IPv4 address to the loopback interface. This occurs because IORING_OP_SENDMSG operations, although requested in the context of an unprivileged user, are sometimes performed by a kernel worker thread without considering that context.
CVE-2019-0155 (v3: 7.8) 14 Nov 2019
Insufficient access control in a subsystem for Intel (R) processor graphics in 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) Processor Families; Intel(R) Pentium(R) Processor J, N, Silver and Gold Series; Intel(R) Celeron(R) Processor J, N, G3900 and G4900 Series; Intel(R) Atom(R) Processor A and E3900 Series; Intel(R) Xeon(R) Processor E3-1500 v5 and v6, E-2100 and E-2200 Processor Families; Intel(R) Graphics Driver for Windows before 26.20.100.6813 (DCH) or 26.20.100.6812 and before 21.20.x.5077 (aka15.45.5077), i915 Linux Driver for Intel(R) Processor Graphics before versions 5.4-rc7, 5.3.11, 4.19.84, 4.14.154, 4.9.201, 4.4.201 may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable escalation of privilege via local access.
CVE-2019-17436 (v3: 7.1) 16 Oct 2019
A Local Privilege Escalation vulnerability exists in GlobalProtect Agent for Linux and Mac OS X version 5.0.4 and earlier and version 4.1.12 and earlier, that can allow non-root users to overwrite root files on the file system.

2018

CVE-2018-17972 (v3: 5.5) 3 Oct 2018
An issue was discovered in the proc_pid_stack function in fs/proc/base.c in the Linux kernel through 4.18.11. It does not ensure that only root may inspect the kernel stack of an arbitrary task, allowing a local attacker to exploit racy stack unwinding and leak kernel task stack contents.
CVE-2018-10853 (v3: 7.8) 11 Sep 2018
A flaw was found in the way Linux kernel KVM hypervisor before 4.18 emulated instructions such as sgdt/sidt/fxsave/fxrstor. It did not check current privilege(CPL) level while emulating unprivileged instructions. An unprivileged guest user/process could use this flaw to potentially escalate privileges inside guest.
CVE-2018-15912 (v3: 7.8) 29 Aug 2018
An issue was discovered in manjaro-update-system.sh in manjaro-system 20180716-1 on Manjaro Linux. A local attacker can install or remove arbitrary packages and package repositories potentially containing hooks with arbitrary code, which will automatically be run as root, or remove packages vital to the system.
CVE-2018-10906 (v3: 7.8) 24 Jul 2018
In fuse before versions 2.9.8 and 3.x before 3.2.5, fusermount is vulnerable to a restriction bypass when SELinux is active. This allows non-root users to mount a FUSE file system with the 'allow_other' mount option regardless of whether 'user_allow_other' is set in the fuse configuration. An attacker may use this flaw to mount a FUSE file system, accessible by other users, and trick them into accessing files on that file system, possibly causing Denial of Service or other unspecified effects.
CVE-2018-13405 (v3: 7.8) 6 Jul 2018
The inode_init_owner function in fs/inode.c in the Linux kernel through 4.17.4 allows local users to create files with an unintended group ownership, in a scenario where a directory is SGID to a certain group and is writable by a user who is not a member of that group. Here, the non-member can trigger creation of a plain file whose group ownership is that group. The intended behavior was that the non-member can trigger creation of a directory (but not a plain file) whose group ownership is that group. The non-member can escalate privileges by making the plain file executable and SGID.
CVE-2018-5166 (v3: 7.5) 11 Jun 2018
WebExtensions can use request redirection and a "filterReponseData" filter to bypass host permission settings to redirect network traffic and access content from a host for which they do not have explicit user permission. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 60.
CVE-2018-1000028 (v3: 7.4) 9 Feb 2018
Linux kernel version after commit bdcf0a423ea1 - 4.15-rc4+, 4.14.8+, 4.9.76+, 4.4.111+ contains a Incorrect Access Control vulnerability in NFS server (nfsd) that can result in remote users reading or writing files they should not be able to via NFS. This attack appear to be exploitable via NFS server must export a filesystem with the "rootsquash" options enabled. This vulnerability appears to have been fixed in after commit 1995266727fa.

CVE-2017-7803 (v3: 7.5) 11 Jun 2018
When a page's content security policy (CSP) header contains a "sandbox" directive, other directives are ignored. This results in the incorrect enforcement of CSP. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.3, Firefox ESR < 52.3, and Firefox < 55.

CVE-2011-2910 (v3: 6.7) 15 Nov 2019
The AX.25 daemon (ax25d) in ax25-tools before 0.0.8-13 does not check the return value of a setuid call. The setuid call is responsible for dropping privileges but if the call fails the daemon would continue to run with root privileges which can allow possible privilege escalation.
