SUSE SLED12 / SLES12 Security Update : kernel (SUSE-SU-2017:0181-1)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP2 kernel was updated to 4.4.38 to
receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs
were fixed :

- CVE-2015-1350: The VFS subsystem in the Linux kernel 3.x
provides an incomplete set of requirements for setattr
operations that underspecifies removing extended
privilege attributes, which allowed local users to cause
a denial of service (capability stripping) via a failed
invocation of a system call, as demonstrated by using
chown to remove a capability from the ping or Wireshark
dumpcap program (bnc#914939).

- CVE-2015-8964: The tty_set_termios_ldisc function in
drivers/tty/tty_ldisc.c in the Linux kernel allowed
local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel
memory by reading a tty data structure (bnc#1010507).

- CVE-2016-7039: The IP stack in the Linux kernel allowed
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (stack
consumption and panic) or possibly have unspecified
other impact by triggering use of the GRO path for large
crafted packets, as demonstrated by packets that contain
only VLAN headers, a related issue to CVE-2016-8666

- CVE-2016-7042: The proc_keys_show function in
security/keys/proc.c in the Linux kernel through 4.8.2,
when the GNU Compiler Collection (gcc) stack protector
is enabled, uses an incorrect buffer size for certain
timeout data, which allowed local users to cause a
denial of service (stack memory corruption and panic) by
reading the /proc/keys file (bnc#1004517).

- CVE-2016-7425: The arcmsr_iop_message_xfer function in
drivers/scsi/arcmsr/arcmsr_hba.c in the Linux kernel did
not restrict a certain length field, which allowed local
users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service
(heap-based buffer overflow) via an
ARCMSR_MESSAGE_WRITE_WQBUFFER control code (bnc#999932).

- CVE-2016-7913: The xc2028_set_config function in
drivers/media/tuners/tuner-xc2028.c in the Linux kernel
allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial
of service (use-after-free) via vectors involving
omission of the firmware name from a certain data
structure (bnc#1010478).

- CVE-2016-7917: The nfnetlink_rcv_batch function in
net/netfilter/nfnetlink.c in the Linux kernel did not
check whether a batch message's length field is large
enough, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive
information from kernel memory or cause a denial of
service (infinite loop or out-of-bounds read) by
leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability (bnc#1010444).

- CVE-2016-8645: The TCP stack in the Linux kernel
mishandled skb truncation, which allowed local users to
cause a denial of service (system crash) via a crafted
application that made sendto system calls, related to
net/ipv4/tcp_ipv4.c and net/ipv6/tcp_ipv6.c

- CVE-2016-8666: The IP stack in the Linux kernel allowed
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (stack
consumption and panic) or possibly have unspecified
other impact by triggering use of the GRO path for
packets with tunnel stacking, as demonstrated by
interleaved IPv4 headers and GRE headers, a related
issue to CVE-2016-7039 (bnc#1003964).

- CVE-2016-9083: drivers/vfio/pci/vfio_pci.c in the Linux
kernel allowed local users to bypass integer overflow
checks, and cause a denial of service (memory
corruption) or have unspecified other impact, by
leveraging access to a vfio PCI device file for a
VFIO_DEVICE_SET_IRQS ioctl call, aka a 'state machine
confusion bug (bnc#1007197).

- CVE-2016-9084: drivers/vfio/pci/vfio_pci_intrs.c in the
Linux kernel misuses the kzalloc function, which allowed
local users to cause a denial of service (integer
overflow) or have unspecified other impact by leveraging
access to a vfio PCI device file (bnc#1007197).

- CVE-2016-9793: A bug in SO_{SND|RCV}BUFFORCE
setsockopt() implementation was fixed, which allowed
CAP_NET_ADMIN users to cause memory corruption.

- CVE-2016-9919: The icmp6_send function in
net/ipv6/icmp.c in the Linux kernel omits a certain
check of the dst data structure, which allowed remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via a
fragmented IPv6 packet (bnc#1014701). The following
