SynopsisThe remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThis update for the Linux Kernel 4.4.121-92_129 fixes several issues.
The following security issues were fixed :
CVE-2020-12653: Fixed a buffer overflow in mwifiex_cmd_append_vsie_tlv() which could have allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (bsc#1171254).
CVE-2020-12654: Fixed a heap-based buffer overflow in mwifiex_ret_wmm_get_status() which could have been triggered by a remote AP to trigger (bsc#1171252).
CVE-2020-1749: Fixed an improper implementation in some IPsec protocols where the data were sent unencrypted allowing an attacker to read them (bsc#1165631).
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.
