New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThis update for the Linux Kernel 3.12.74-60_64_82 fixes several issues. The following security issues were fixed :
- CVE-2017-13166: An elevation of privilege vulnerability was fixed in the kernel v4l2 video driver.
- CVE-2018-1068: A flaw was found in the Linux kernels implementation of 32-bit syscall interface for bridging.
This allowed a privileged user to arbitrarily write to a limited range of kernel memory (bsc#1085114).
- CVE-2018-7566: The Linux kernel had a buffer overflow via an SNDRV_SEQ_IOCTL_SET_CLIENT_POOL ioctl write operation to /dev/snd/seq by a local user (bsc#1083488).
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.
SolutionTo install this SUSE Security Update use the SUSE recommended installation methods like YaST online_update or 'zypper patch'.
