The openSUSE 10.3 kernel was updated to fix various security problems and bugs. Following security bugs were fixed :

CVE-2008-5702: Buffer underflow in the ibwdt_ioctl function in drivers/watchdog/ib700wdt.c might allow local users to have an unknown impact via a certain /dev/watchdog WDIOC_SETTIMEOUT IOCTL call.

CVE-2008-5079: net/atm/svc.c in the ATM subsystem allowed local users to cause a denial of service (kernel infinite loop) by making two calls to svc_listen for the same socket, and then reading a /proc/net/atm/*vc file, related to corruption of the vcc table.

CVE-2008-5029: The __scm_destroy function in net/core/scm.c makes indirect recursive calls to itself through calls to the fput function, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (panic) via vectors related to sending an SCM_RIGHTS message through a UNIX domain socket and closing file descriptors.

CVE-2008-5134: Buffer overflow in the lbs_process_bss function in drivers/net/wireless/libertas/scan.c in the libertas subsystem allowed remote attackers to have an unknown impact via an ‘invalid beacon/probe response.’

CVE-2008-4933: Buffer overflow in the hfsplus_find_cat function in fs/hfsplus/catalog.c allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or system crash) via an hfsplus filesystem image with an invalid catalog namelength field, related to the hfsplus_cat_build_key_uni function.

CVE-2008-5025: Stack-based buffer overflow in the hfs_cat_find_brec function in fs/hfs/catalog.c allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption or system crash) via an hfs filesystem image with an invalid catalog namelength field, a related issue to CVE-2008-4933.

CVE-2008-5182: The inotify functionality might allow local users to gain privileges via unknown vectors related to race conditions in inotify watch removal and umount.
