openSUSE Security Update : the Linux Kernel (openSUSE-2017-287)

High Nessus Plugin ID 97367


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


The openSUSE Leap 42.1 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes.

The following security bugs were fixed :

- CVE-2017-6074: The dccp_rcv_state_process function in net/dccp/input.c in the Linux kernel mishandled DCCP_PKT_REQUEST packet data structures in the LISTEN state, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (invalid free) or possibly have unspecified other impact via an application that made an IPV6_RECVPKTINFO setsockopt system call (bnc#1026024).

- CVE-2017-5986: Race condition in the sctp_wait_for_sndbuf function in net/sctp/socket.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (assertion failure and panic) via a multithreaded application that peels off an association in a certain buffer-full state (bnc#1025235).

- CVE-2017-5970: The ipv4_pktinfo_prepare function in net/ipv4/ip_sockglue.c in the Linux kernel allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via (1) an application that made crafted system calls or possibly (2) IPv4 traffic with invalid IP options (bnc#1024938).

- CVE-2017-5897: A potential remote denial of service within the IPv6 GRE protocol was fixed. (bsc#1023762)
