Qualcomm on Tuesday released patches to address multiple security flaws in its chipsets, some of which could be exploited to cause information disclosure and memory corruption.

The five vulnerabilities — tracked from CVE-2022-40516 through CVE-2022-40520 — also impact Lenovo ThinkPad X13s laptops, prompting the Chinese PC maker to issue BIOS updates to plug the security holes.

The list of flaws is as follows –

  • CVE-2022-40516, CVE-2022-40517 & CVE-2022-40520 (CVSS scores: 8.4) – Memory corruption in Core due to stack-based buffer overflow
  • CVE-2022-40518 & CVE-2022-40519 (CVSS scores: 6.8) – Information disclosure due to buffer over-read in Core
