The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.
This SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Service Pack 1 kernel contains various security fixes and lots of other bugfixes. Notable larger bugfixes and changes : - 603464: Fix system freezewhen doing a network crashdump with a netxen_nic driver - 610828: Avoid kernel failure on connects/disconnects to a novell server with Novell Client 2.0 - 612009: Fix Oracle issues due to problems with OCFS - 614332: Fix SMB processes stuck in uninteruptible sleep when using (LVS/ClusteredIP) + CTDB + OCFS2 - 619525: Fix igb driver regression - 626321: Add patch for Apparent OCFS2 corruption after removing a bunch of reflinks - 627518: Avoid System hangs up after failed to copy files from smb server - 629552: Skip Tape rewind during boot or a scsi scan The following security issues were fixed : - insufficient range checks on the ETHTOOL_GRXCLSRLALL command allowed local users to at least crash the kernel. (CVE-2010-2478) - Specially crafted NFS write requests could crash the kernel. (CVE-2010-2521) - a malicious local user could fill the cache used by CIFS do perform dns lookups with chosen data, therefore tricking the kernel into mounting a wrong CIFS server. (CVE-2010-2524) - a local user could overwrite append-only files on a btrfs file system. (CVE-2010-2537) - a local user could read kernel memory of a btrfs file system. (CVE-2010-2538) - local users could trigger a NULL derefence via gfs2 file system. (CVE-2010-2798) - driver specific drm ioctl could leak kernel memory to users with access to dri devices. (CVE-2010-2803) - 'tc dump' could leak some kernel memory. (CVE-2010-2942) - the 'os2' xaddr namespace could be used to bypass xattr namespace rules. (CVE-2010-2946) - integer overflows in the CAN subsystem allowed attackers to crash the kernel or gain privileges. (CVE-2010-2959) - certain write operations on an ext4 filesystem could crash the kernel. (CVE-2010-3015)
Apply SAT patch number 3068 / 3069 / 3070 as appropriate.
