The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP4 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. Four new speculative execution information leak issues have been identified in Intel CPUs. (bsc#1111331) CVE-2018-12126: Microarchitectural Store Buffer Data Sampling (MSBDS) CVE-2018-12127: Microarchitectural Fill Buffer Data Sampling (MFBDS) CVE-2018-12130: Microarchitectural Load Port Data Samling (MLPDS) CVE-2019-11091: Microarchitectural Data Sampling Uncacheable Memory (MDSUM) This kernel update contains software mitigations for these issues, which also utilize CPU microcode updates shipped in parallel. For more information on this set of information leaks, check out https://www.suse.com/support/kb/doc/?id=7023736 The following security bugs were fixed: CVE-2019-9213: The expand_downwards function 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-2013-0216: The Xen netback functionality allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (loop) by triggering ring pointer corruption (bnc#800280). CVE-2013-0231: The pciback_enable_msi function in the PCI backend driver (drivers/xen/pciback/conf_space_capability_msi.c) in Xen allowed guest OS users with PCI device access to cause a denial of service via a large number of kernel log messages. (bnc#801178). CVE-2012-3430: The rds_recvmsg function in net/rds/recv.c did not initialize a certain structure member, which allowed local users to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a recvfrom or recvmsg system call on an RDS socket (bnc#773383). CVE-2012-3412: The sfc (aka Solarflare Solarstorm) driver allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (DMA descriptor consumption and network-controller outage) via crafted TCP packets that trigger a small MSS value (bnc#774523). CVE-2013-0160: The kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive information about keystroke timing by using the inotify API on the /dev/ptmx device (bnc#797175). CVE-2013-1979: The scm_set_cred function in include/net/scm.h uses incorrect uid and gid values during credentials passing, which allowed local users to gain privileges via a crafted application (bnc#816708). 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.
