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 12 SP4 LTSS kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes.
The following security bugs were fixed :
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-2019-20908: An issue was discovered in drivers/firmware/efi/efi.c where incorrect access permissions for the efivar_ssdt ACPI variable could be used by attackers to bypass lockdown or secure boot restrictions, aka CID-1957a85b0032 (bnc#1173567).
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).
CVE-2020-15393: usbtest_disconnect in drivers/usb/misc/usbtest.c has a memory leak, aka CID-28ebeb8db770 (bnc#1173514).
CVE-2020-12771: btree_gc_coalesce in drivers/md/bcache/btree.c had a deadlock if a coalescing operation fails (bnc#1171732).
CVE-2019-16746: net/wireless/nl80211.c did not check the length of variable elements in a beacon head, leading to a buffer overflow (bnc#1152107).
CVE-2020-12888: The VFIO PCI driver mishandled attempts to access disabled memory space (bnc#1171868).
CVE-2020-10769: A buffer over-read flaw was found in crypto_authenc_extractkeys in crypto/authenc.c in the IPsec Cryptographic algorithm's module, authenc. When a payload longer than 4 bytes, and is not following 4-byte alignment boundary guidelines, it causes a buffer over-read threat, leading to a system crash. This flaw allowed a local attacker with user privileges to cause a denial of service (bnc#1173265).
CVE-2020-10773: A kernel stack information leak on s390/s390x was fixed (bnc#1172999).
CVE-2020-14416: A race condition in tty->disc_data handling in the slip and slcan line discipline could lead to a use-after-free, aka CID-0ace17d56824. This affects drivers/net/slip/slip.c and drivers/net/can/slcan.c (bnc#1162002).
CVE-2020-10768: Indirect branch speculation could have been enabled after it was force-disabled by the PR_SPEC_FORCE_DISABLE prctl command. (bnc#1172783).
CVE-2020-10766: Fixed Rogue cross-process SSBD shutdown, where a Linux scheduler logical bug allows an attacker to turn off the SSBD protection. (bnc#1172781).
CVE-2020-10767: Indirect Branch Prediction Barrier was force-disabled when STIBP is unavailable or enhanced IBRS is available.
CVE-2020-13974: drivers/tty/vt/keyboard.c had an integer overflow if k_ascii is called several times in a row, aka CID-b86dab054059.
CVE-2019-20810: go7007_snd_init in drivers/media/usb/go7007/snd-go7007.c in the Linux kernel did not call snd_card_free for a failure path, which causes a memory leak, aka CID-9453264ef586 (bnc#1172458).
The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details.
