SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThe SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Kernel was updated to 220.127.116.11 fixing various bugs and security issues.
CVE-2010-1641: The do_gfs2_set_flags function in fs/gfs2/file.c in the Linux kernel does not verify the ownership of a file, which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions via a SETFLAGS ioctl request.
CVE-2010-1087: The nfs_wait_on_request function in fs/nfs/pagelist.c in the Linux kernel allows attackers to cause a denial of service (Oops) via unknown vectors related to truncating a file and an operation that is not interruptible.
CVE-2010-1643: mm/shmem.c in the Linux kernel, when strict overcommit is enabled, does not properly handle the export of shmemfs objects by knfsd, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and knfsd crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via unknown vectors.
CVE-2010-1437: Race condition in the find_keyring_by_name function in security/keys/keyring.c in the Linux kernel allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via keyctl session commands that trigger access to a dead keyring that is undergoing deletion by the key_cleanup function.
CVE-2010-1446: arch/powerpc/mm/fsl_booke_mmu.c in KGDB in the Linux kernel, when running on PowerPC, does not properly perform a security check for access to a kernel page, which allows local users to overwrite arbitrary kernel memory, related to Fsl booke.
CVE-2010-1162: The release_one_tty function in drivers/char/tty_io.c in the Linux kernel omits certain required calls to the put_pid function, which has unspecified impact and local attack vectors.
CVE-2009-4537: drivers/net/r8169.c in the r8169 driver in the Linux kernel does not properly check the size of an Ethernet frame that exceeds the MTU, which allows remote attackers to (1) cause a denial of service (temporary network outage) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing A characters and certain packets containing E characters; or (2) cause a denial of service (system crash) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing '\0' characters, related to the value of the status register and erroneous behavior associated with the RxMaxSize register. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2009-1389.
SolutionUpdate the affected kernel packages.
