SynopsisThe remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP1 kernel has been updated to the 188.8.131.52 stable release to fix a lot of bugs and security issues.
The following security issues have been fixed :
- A use after free bug in hugetlb support could be used by local attackers to crash the system. (CVE-2012-2133)
- A NULL pointer dereference bug in the regsets proc file could be used by local attackers to perhaps crash the system. With mmap_min_addr is set and enabled, exploitation is unlikely. (CVE-2012-1097)
- A reference counting issue in CLONE_IO could be used by local attackers to cause a denial of service (out of memory). (CVE-2012-0879)
- A file handle leak in CIFS code could be used by local attackers to crash the system. (CVE-2012-1090)
- Large nested epoll chains could be used by local attackers to cause a denial of service (excessive CPU consumption). (CVE-2011-1083)
- When using KVM, programming a PIT timer without a irqchip configuration, can be used to crash the kvm guest. This likely can be done only by a privileged guest user. (CVE-2011-4622)
- A KVM 32bit guest crash in 'syscall' opcode handling was fixed that could be caused by local attackers.
