SuSE 10 Security Update : Linux kernel (x86) (ZYPP Patch Number 6925)

2010-10-11T00:00:00
ID SUSE_KERNEL-6925.NASL

Description

This update fixes lots of bugs and some security issues in the SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP 3 kernel.

  • A stack-based buffer overflow in the HFS subsystem of the Linux kernel allows remote attackers to have an unspecified impact via a crafted Hierarchical File System (HFS) filesystem, related to the hfs_readdir() function in fs/hfs/dir.c. CVE-2010-0410: The connector netlink driver (drivers/connector/connector.c) of the Linux kernel allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption or system crash) by sending the kernel many NETLINK_CONNECTOR messages. CVE-2009-3556: A configuration value in the qla2xxx driver of the Linux kernel when N_Port ID Virtualization (NPIV) hardware is used, sets world-writable permissions for the vport_create and vport_delete files under /sys/class/scsi_host/, which allows local users to make arbitrary changes to SCSI host attributes by modifying these files. (CVE-2009-4020)
