SynopsisThe remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThis update for the Linux Kernel 3.12.74-60_64_63 fixes one issue. The following security issue was fixed :
- CVE-2017-16939: The XFRM dump policy implementation in net/xfrm/xfrm_user.c allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) via a crafted SO_RCVBUF setsockopt system call in conjunction with XFRM_MSG_GETPOLICY Netlink messages (bsc#1069708).
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.
