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 SP1 RT kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes.
The following security bugs were fixed :
CVE-2020-10135: Legacy pairing and secure-connections pairing authentication in Bluetooth 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-2020-0305: 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-2020-10781: zram sysfs resource consumption was fixed (bnc#1173074).
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 had 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-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-2020-10766: 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-2020-13974: Fixed a integer overflow in drivers/tty/vt/keyboard.c, if k_ascii is called several times in a row (bnc#1172775).
CVE-2020-0543: Fixed a side channel attack against special registers which could have resulted in leaking of read values to cores other than the one which called it. This attack is known as Special Register Buffer Data Sampling (SRBDS) or 'CrossTalk' (bsc#1154824).
CVE-2020-13143: Fixed an out-of-bounds read in gadget_dev_desc_UDC_store in drivers/usb/gadget/configfs.c (bsc#1171982).
CVE-2020-12769: Fixed an issue which could have allowed attackers to cause a panic via concurrent calls to dw_spi_irq and dw_spi_transfer_one (bsc#1171983).
CVE-2020-12659: Fixed an out-of-bounds write (by a user with the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability) due to improper headroom validation (bsc#1171214).
