    Hi chanzk ,

    Unlike the full blown WAF security solutions, F5 rules on AWS WAF are limited in total capacity, limiting the types of CVEs we can offer protection against. Normally, F5 rules include protection against CVEs that are common among customers. CVE-2016-1000027 may affect only few, therefore it wasn't included yet. We will add it in our next updates.

    CVE-2021-22118 is a local vulnerability, not a network vulnerability. So less relevant for a WAF.
