SUSE SLES10 Security Update : ofed (SUSE-SU-2012:1708-1)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 83571
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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


This update of ofed fixed multiple issues (including security related flaws) :

- sdp: move histogram allocation from stack to heap (bnc#706175)

- cma: Fix crash in request handlers (bnc#678795, CVE-2011-0695)

- rds: set correct msg_namelen (bnc#773383, CVE-2012-3430)

- cm: Bump reference count on cm_id before invoking (bnc#678795, CVE-2011-0695)

- sdp / ipath: Added fixes for 64bit divide on 32bit builds

- updated Infiniband sysconfig file to match openibd (bnc#721597)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
