The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP2 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : CVE-2018-19985: The function hso_probe read if_num from the USB device (as an u8) and used it without a length check to index an array, resulting in an OOB memory read in hso_probe or hso_get_config_data that could be used by local attackers (bnc#1120743). CVE-2018-16884: NFS41+ shares mounted in different network namespaces at the same time can make bc_svc_process() use wrong back-channel IDs and cause a use-after-free vulnerability. Thus a malicious container user can cause a host kernel memory corruption and a system panic. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out (bnc#1119946). CVE-2018-20169: The USB subsystem mishandled size checks during the reading of an extra descriptor, related to __usb_get_extra_descriptor in drivers/usb/core/usb.c (bnc#1119714). CVE-2018-9568: In sk_clone_lock of sock.c, there is a possible memory corruption due to type confusion. This could lead to local escalation of privilege with no additional execution privileges needed. User interaction is not needed for exploitation. (bnc#1118319). CVE-2018-16862: A security flaw was found in a way that the cleancache subsystem clears an inode after the final file truncation (removal). The new file created with the same inode may contain leftover pages from cleancache and the old file data instead of the new one (bnc#1117186). CVE-2018-19824: A local user could exploit a use-after-free in the ALSA driver by supplying a malicious USB Sound device (with zero interfaces) that is mishandled in usb_audio_probe in sound/usb/card.c (bnc#1118152). CVE-2018-18281: The mremap() syscall performs TLB flushes after dropping pagetable locks. If a syscall such as ftruncate() removes entries from the pagetables of a task that is in the middle of mremap(), a stale TLB entry can remain for a short time that permits access to a physical page after it has been released back to the page allocator and reused. (bnc#1113769). CVE-2018-18710: An information leak in cdrom_ioctl_select_disc in drivers/cdrom/cdrom.c could be used by local attackers to read kernel memory because a cast from unsigned long to int interferes with bounds checking. This is similar to CVE-2018-10940 and CVE-2018-16658 (bnc#1113751). CVE-2018-18690: A local attacker able to set attributes on an xfs filesystem could make this filesystem non-operational until the next mount by triggering an unchecked error condition during an xfs attribute change, because xfs_attr_shortform_addname in fs/xfs/libxfs/xfs_attr.c mishandled ATTR_REPLACE operations with conversion of an attr from short to long form (bnc#1105025). CVE-2018-18386: drivers/tty/n_tty.c allowed local attackers (who are able to access pseudo terminals) to hang/block further usage of any pseudo terminal devices due to an EXTPROC versus ICANON confusion in TIOCINQ (bnc#1094825). CVE-2018-9516: In hid_debug_events_read of drivers/hid/hid-debug.c, there is a possible out of bounds write due to a missing bounds check. This could lead to local escalation of privilege with System execution privileges needed. User interaction is not needed for exploitation. (bnc#1108498). CVE-2019-3459, CVE-2019-3460: The Blutooth stack suffered from two remote information leak vulnerabilities in the code that handles incoming L2cap configuration packets (bsc#1120758). The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details. 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.
