New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3
The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.
SynopsisThe remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 SP2 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes.
The following security bugs were fixed :
CVE-2019-19462: relay_open in kernel/relay.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (such as relay blockage) by triggering a NULL alloc_percpu result (bnc#1158265).
CVE-2019-20810: Fixed a memory leak in go7007_snd_init in drivers/media/usb/go7007/snd-go7007.c because it did not call snd_card_free for a failure path (bnc#1172458).
CVE-2019-20812: An issue was discovered in the prb_calc_retire_blk_tmo() function in net/packet/af_packet.c could result in a denial of service (CPU consumption and soft lockup) in a certain failure case involving TPACKET_V3 (bnc#1172453).
CVE-2020-0305: In cdev_get of char_dev.c, there is a possible use-after-free due to a race condition. This could lead to local escalation of privilege with System execution privileges needed. User interaction is not needed for exploitation (bnc#1174462).
CVE-2020-10135: Legacy pairing and secure-connections pairing authentication in BluetoothÂ® BR/EDR Core Specification v5.2 and earlier may have allowed an unauthenticated user to complete authentication without pairing credentials via adjacent access. An unauthenticated, adjacent attacker could impersonate a Bluetooth BR/EDR master or slave to pair with a previously paired remote device to successfully complete the authentication procedure without knowing the link key (bnc#1171988).
CVE-2020-10711: A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the SELinux subsystem in versions This flaw occurs while importing the Commercial IP Security Option (CIPSO) protocol's category bitmap into the SELinux extensible bitmap via the' ebitmap_netlbl_import' routine.
This flaw allowed a remote network user to crash the system kernel, resulting in a denial of service (bnc#1171191).
CVE-2020-10732: A flaw was found in the implementation of Userspace core dumps. This flaw allowed an attacker with a local account to crash a trivial program and exfiltrate private kernel data (bnc#1171220).
CVE-2020-10751: A flaw was found in the SELinux LSM hook implementation, where it incorrectly assumed that an skb would only contain a single netlink message. The hook would incorrectly only validate the first netlink message in the skb and allow or deny the rest of the messages within the skb with the granted permission without further processing (bnc#1171189).
CVE-2020-10766: Fixed an issue which allowed an attacker with a local account to disable SSBD protection (bnc#1172781).
CVE-2020-10767: Fixed an issue where Indirect Branch Prediction Barrier was disabled in certain circumstances, leaving the system open to a spectre v2 style attack (bnc#1172782).
CVE-2020-10768: Fixed an issue with the prctl() function, where indirect branch speculation could be enabled even though it was diabled before (bnc#1172783).
CVE-2020-10773: Fixed a memory leak on s390/s390x, in the cmm_timeout_hander in file arch/s390/mm/cmm.c (bnc#1172999).
CVE-2020-10781: A zram sysfs resource consumption was fixed (bnc#1173074).
CVE-2020-12656: Fixed a memory leak in gss_mech_free in the rpcsec_gss_krb5 implementation, caused by a lack of certain domain_release calls (bnc#1171219).
CVE-2020-12769: An issue was discovered in drivers/spi/spi-dw.c allowed attackers to cause a panic via concurrent calls to dw_spi_irq and dw_spi_transfer_one (bnc#1171983).
CVE-2020-12771: An issue was discovered in btree_gc_coalesce in drivers/md/bcache/btree.c has a deadlock if a coalescing operation fails (bnc#1171732).
CVE-2020-12888: The VFIO PCI driver mishandled attempts to access disabled memory space (bnc#1171868).
CVE-2020-13143: gadget_dev_desc_UDC_store in drivers/usb/gadget/configfs.c relies on kstrdup without considering the possibility of an internal '\0' value, which allowed attackers to trigger an out-of-bounds read (bnc#1171982).
CVE-2020-13974: Fixed a integer overflow in drivers/tty/vt/keyboard.c, if k_ascii is called several times in a row (bnc#1172775).
CVE-2020-14416: Fixed a race condition in tty->disc_data handling in the slip and slcan line discipline could lead to a use-after-free.
This affects drivers/net/slip/slip.c and drivers/net/can/slcan.c (bnc#1162002).
CVE-2020-15393: Fixed a memory leak in usbtest_disconnect (bnc#1173514).
CVE-2020-15780: An issue was discovered in drivers/acpi/acpi_configfs.c where injection of malicious ACPI tables via configfs could be used by attackers to bypass lockdown and secure boot restrictions, aka CID-75b0cea7bf30 (bnc#1173573).
The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details.
