openSUSE Security Update : Linux Kernel (openSUSE-SU-2014:1678-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

The openSUSE 13.2 kernel was updated to version 3.16.7.

These security issues were fixed :

- CVE-2014-9322: A local privilege escalation in the
x86_64 32bit compatibility signal handling was fixed,
which could be used by local attackers to crash the
machine or execute code. (bnc#910251)

- CVE-2014-9090: The do_double_fault function in
arch/x86/kernel/traps.c in the Linux kernel did not
properly handle faults associated with the Stack Segment
(SS) segment register, which allowed local users to
cause a denial of service (panic) via a modify_ldt
system call, as demonstrated by sigreturn_32 in the
linux-clock-tests test suite. (bnc#907818)

- CVE-2014-8133: Insufficient validation of TLS register
usage could leak information from the kernel stack to
userspace. (bnc#909077)

- CVE-2014-3673: The SCTP implementation in the Linux
kernel through 3.17.2 allowed remote attackers to cause
a denial of service (system crash) via a malformed
ASCONF chunk, related to net/sctp/sm_make_chunk.c and
net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c (bnc#902346, bnc#902349).

- CVE-2014-3687: The sctp_assoc_lookup_asconf_ack function
in net/sctp/associola.c in the SCTP implementation in
the Linux kernel through 3.17.2 allowed remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (panic) via duplicate
ASCONF chunks that triggered an incorrect uncork within
the side-effect interpreter (bnc#902349).

- CVE-2014-3688: The SCTP implementation in the Linux
kernel before 3.17.4 allowed remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering a
large number of chunks in an association's output queue,
as demonstrated by ASCONF probes, related to
net/sctp/inqueue.c and net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c

- CVE-2014-7826: kernel/trace/trace_syscalls.c in the
Linux kernel through 3.17.2 did not properly handle
private syscall numbers during use of the ftrace
subsystem, which allowed local users to gain privileges
or cause a denial of service (invalid pointer
dereference) via a crafted application (bnc#904013).

- CVE-2014-7841: The sctp_process_param function in
net/sctp/sm_make_chunk.c in the SCTP implementation in
the Linux kernel before 3.17.4, when ASCONF is used,
allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a
malformed INIT chunk (bnc#905100).

driver (bnc#902632).
