Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP3 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes.

The following security bugs were fixed :

CVE-2021-3347: A use-after-free was discovered in the PI futexes during fault handling, allowing local users to execute code in the kernel (bnc#1181349).

CVE-2020-25211: Fixed a buffer overflow in ctnetlink_parse_tuple_filter() which could be triggered by a local attackers by injecting conntrack netlink configuration (bnc#1176395).

CVE-2020-27835: A use-after-free in the infiniband hfi1 driver was found, specifically in the way user calls Ioctl after open dev file and fork. A local user could use this flaw to crash the system (bnc#1179878).

CVE-2020-29569: Fixed a potential privilege escalation and information leaks related to the PV block backend, as used by Xen (bnc#1179509).

CVE-2020-29568: Fixed a denial of service issue, related to processing watch events (bnc#1179508).

CVE-2020-0444: Fixed a bad kfree due to a logic error in audit_data_to_entry (bnc#1180027).

CVE-2020-0465: Fixed multiple missing bounds checks in hid-multitouch.c that could have led to local privilege escalation (bnc#1180029).

CVE-2020-0466: Fixed a use-after-free due to a logic error in do_epoll_ctl and ep_loop_check_proc of eventpoll.c (bnc#1180031).

CVE-2020-4788: Fixed an issue with IBM Power9 processors could have allowed a local user to obtain sensitive information from the data in the L1 cache under extenuating circumstances (bsc#1177666).

CVE-2020-15436: Fixed a use after free vulnerability in fs/block_dev.c which could have allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (bsc#1179141).

CVE-2020-27068: Fixed an out-of-bounds read due to a missing bounds check in the nl80211_policy policy of nl80211.c (bnc#1180086).

CVE-2020-27777: Fixed a privilege escalation in the Run-Time Abstraction Services (RTAS) interface, affecting guests running on top of PowerVM or KVM hypervisors (bnc#1179107).

CVE-2020-27786: Fixed an out-of-bounds write in the MIDI implementation (bnc#1179601).

CVE-2020-27825: Fixed a race in the trace_open and buffer resize calls (bsc#1179960).

CVE-2020-29660: Fixed a locking inconsistency in the tty subsystem that may have allowed a read-after-free attack against TIOCGSID (bnc#1179745).

CVE-2020-29661: Fixed a locking issue in the tty subsystem that allowed a use-after-free attack against TIOCSPGRP (bsc#1179745).

CVE-2020-28974: Fixed a slab-out-of-bounds read in fbcon which could have been used by local attackers to read privileged information or potentially crash the kernel (bsc#1178589).

CVE-2020-28915: Fixed a buffer over-read in the fbcon code which could have been used by local attackers to read kernel memory (bsc#1178886).

CVE-2020-25669: Fixed a use-after-free read in sunkbd_reinit() (bsc#1178182).

CVE-2020-15437: Fixed a NULL pointer dereference which could have allowed local users to cause a denial of service(bsc#1179140).

CVE-2020-36158: Fixed a potential remote code execution in the Marvell mwifiex driver (bsc#1180559).

CVE-2020-11668: Fixed the mishandling of invalid descriptors in the Xirlink camera USB driver (bnc#1168952).

CVE-2020-25285: Fixed a race condition between hugetlb sysctl handlers in mm/hugetlb.c (bnc#1176485).

CVE-2019-20934: Fixed a use-after-free in show_numa_stats() because NUMA fault statistics were inappropriately freed (bsc#1179663).

CVE-2018-10902: It was found that the raw midi kernel driver did not protect against concurrent access which leads to a double realloc (double free) in snd_rawmidi_input_params() and snd_rawmidi_output_status() which are part of snd_rawmidi_ioctl() handler in rawmidi.c file. A malicious local attacker could possibly use this for privilege escalation (bnc#1105322).

The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details.
