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 glibc fixes the following security issues :
- CVE-2017-18269: An SSE2-optimized memmove implementation for i386 did not correctly perform the overlapping memory check if the source memory range spaned the middle of the address space, resulting in corrupt data being produced by the copy operation. This may have disclosed information to context-dependent attackers, resulted in a denial of service or code execution (bsc#1094150).
- CVE-2018-11236: Prevent integer overflow on 32-bit architectures when processing very long pathname arguments to the realpath function, leading to a stack-based buffer overflow (bsc#1094161).
- CVE-2018-11237: An AVX-512-optimized implementation of the mempcpy function may have writen data beyond the target buffer, leading to a buffer overflow in
__mempcpy_avx512_no_vzeroupper (bsc#1092877, bsc#1094154).
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'.
