openSUSE Security Update : the Linux Kernel (openSUSE-2017-245)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 97274
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 openSUSE host is missing a security update.


The openSUSE 42.2 kernel was updated to 4.4.42 stable release.

The following security bugs were fixed :

- CVE-2016-7117: Use-after-free vulnerability in the
__sys_recvmmsg function in net/socket.c in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via vectors involving a recvmmsg system call that is mishandled during error processing (bnc#1003077 1003253).

- CVE-2017-5576, CVE-2017-5577: A buffer overflow in the VC4_SUBMIT_CL IOCTL in the VideoCore DRM driver for Raspberry Pi was fixed. (bsc#1021294)

- CVE-2017-5551: tmpfs: Fixed a bug that could have allowed users to set setgid bits on files they don't down. (bsc#1021258).

- CVE-2017-2583: A Linux kernel built with the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (CONFIG_KVM) support was vulnerable to an incorrect segment selector(SS) value error. A user/process inside guest could have used this flaw to crash the guest resulting in DoS or potentially escalate their privileges inside guest. (bsc#1020602).

- CVE-2017-2584: arch/x86/kvm/emulate.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) via a crafted application that leverages instruction emulation for fxrstor, fxsave, sgdt, and sidt (bnc#1019851).

- CVE-2015-8709: ** DISPUTED ** kernel/ptrace.c in the Linux kernel mishandled uid and gid mappings, which allowed local users to gain privileges by establishing a user namespace, waiting for a root process to enter that namespace with an unsafe uid or gid, and then using the ptrace system call. NOTE: the vendor states 'there is no kernel bug here (bnc#959709 bsc#960561).

- CVE-2016-9806: Race condition in the netlink_dump function in net/netlink/af_netlink.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (double free) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted application that made sendmsg system calls, leading to a free operation associated with a new dump that started earlier than anticipated (bnc#1013540 1017589).

- CVE-2016-8645: The TCP stack in the Linux kernel mishandled skb truncation, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) via a crafted application that made sendto system calls, related to net/ipv4/tcp_ipv4.c and net/ipv6/tcp_ipv6.c (bnc#1009969).

- CVE-2016-9793: The sock_setsockopt function in net/core/sock.c in the Linux kernel mishandled negative values of sk_sndbuf and sk_rcvbuf, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for a crafted setsockopt system call with the (1) SO_SNDBUFFORCE or (2) SO_RCVBUFFORCE option (bnc#1013531 bsc#1013542).

- CVE-2016-9919: The icmp6_send function in net/ipv6/icmp.c in the Linux kernel omits a certain check of the dst data structure, which allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (panic) via a fragmented IPv6 packet (bnc#1014701).
