SynopsisThe remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThis update for the Linux Kernel 3.12.61-52_69 fixes several issues.
The following security bugs were fixed :
- CVE-2017-7533: A bug in inotify code allowed local users to escalate privilege (bsc#1050751).
- CVE-2017-7645: The NFSv2/NFSv3 server in the nfsd subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a long RPC reply, related to net/sunrpc/svc.c, fs/nfsd/nfs3xdr.c, and fs/nfsd/nfsxdr.c (bsc#1046191).
- A SUSE Linux Enterprise specific regression in tearing down network namespaces was fixed (bsc#1044878)
- CVE-2017-9242: The __ip6_append_data function in net/ipv6/ip6_output.c in the Linux kernel is too late in checking whether an overwrite of an skb data structure may occur, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via crafted system calls (bsc#1042892).
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
