The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP3 Azure kernel was updated to 4.4.176 to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : CVE-2019-2024: A use-after-free when disconnecting a source was fixed which could lead to crashes. bnc#1129179). CVE-2019-9213: expand_downwards in mm/mmap.c lacked a check for the mmap minimum address, which made it easier for attackers to exploit kernel NULL pointer dereferences on non-SMAP platforms. This is related to a capability check for the wrong task (bnc#1128166). CVE-2019-6974: kvm_ioctl_create_device in virt/kvm/kvm_main.c mishandled reference counting because of a race condition, leading to a use-after-free. (bnc#1124728) CVE-2019-3459, CVE-2019-3460: The Bluetooth stack suffered from two remote information leak vulnerabilities in the code that handles incoming L2cap configuration packets (bsc#1120758). CVE-2019-7221: Fixed a use-after-free vulnerability in the KVM hypervisor related to the emulation of a preemption timer, allowing an guest user/process to crash the host kernel. (bsc#1124732). CVE-2019-7222: Fixed an information leakage in the KVM hypervisor related to handling page fault exceptions, which allowed a guest user/process to use this flaw to leak the host's stack memory contents to a guest (bsc#1124735). CVE-2017-18249: The add_free_nid function in fs/f2fs/node.c did not properly track an allocated nid, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (race condition) or possibly have unspecified other impact via concurrent threads (bnc#1087036). 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.
