The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.
The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Kernel was updated to 22.214.171.124 fixing various bugs and security issues. The following security issues were fixed : - A missing NULL pointer check in the socket sendpage function can be used by local attackers to gain root privileges. (CVE-2009-2692) - A kernel stack overflow when mounting eCryptfs filesystems in parse_tag_11_packet() was fixed. Code execution might be possible of ecryptfs is in use. (CVE-2009-2406) - A kernel heap overflow when mounting eCryptfs filesystems in parse_tag_3_packet() was fixed. Code execution might be possible of ecryptfs is in use. (CVE-2009-2407) The compiler option -fno-delete-null-pointer-checks was added to the kernel build, and the -fwrapv compiler option usage was fixed to be used everywhere. This works around the compiler removing checks too aggressively. - A crash in the r8169 driver when receiving large packets was fixed. This is probably exploitable only in the local network. (CVE-2009-1389) No CVE yet: A sigaltstack kernel memory disclosure was fixed. The NULL page protection using mmap_min_addr was enabled (was disabled before). This update also adds the Microsoft Hyper-V drivers from upstream. Additionaly a lot of bugs were fixed.
