Security vulnerabilities have been discovered within the Dell BIOS 

Five new security vulnerabilities have been discovered within the Dell BIOS, which leaves the system vulnerable to code execution. 

Read more about the CVE details here: CVE-2022-24415, CVE-2022-24416, CVE-2022-24419, CVE-2022-24420, and CVE-2022-24421 

The CVSS (Common Vulnerability Scoring System) Severity Score has been rated as: All the vulnerabilities are rated 8.2 

All five vulnerabilities are related to improper input validation vulnerabilities, affecting the system management mode of the firmware. This effectively allows a locally authenticated attacker to leverage the system management interrupt to achieve arbitrary code execution. The ongoing discovery of these vulnerabilities is due to repeatable failures around input sanitation.
