Hador Manor discovered that the DCCP protocol implementation in the Linux
kernel improperly handled socket reuse, leading to a use-after-free
vulnerability. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2020-16119)
Giuseppe Scrivano discovered that the overlay file system in the Linux
kernel did not properly perform permission checks in some situations. A

gain read access to restricted files. (CVE-2020-16120)
