The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
This update for the Linux Kernel 3.12.61-52_92 fixes several issues. The following security bugs were fixed : - CVE-2017-15274: security/keys/keyctl.c in the Linux kernel did not consider the case of a NULL payload in conjunction with a nonzero length value, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted add_key or keyctl system call (bsc#1045327). - CVE-2017-1000112: Updated patch for this issue to be in sync with the other livepatches. Description of the issue: Prevent race condition in net-packet code that could have been exploited by unprivileged users to gain root access (bsc#1052368, bsc#1052311). - CVE-2017-9242: The __ip6_append_data function in net/ipv6/ip6_output.c was 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). - CVE-2017-7645: The NFSv2/NFSv3 server in the nfsd subsystem allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a long RPC reply (bsc#1046191). 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.
