This kernel update for the SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP3 kernel fixes several critical security issues.

The following security issues were fixed :

  • Incorrect buffer handling in the biarch-compat buffer handling could be used by local attackers to gain root privileges. This problem affects foremost x86_64, or potentially other biarch platforms, like PowerPC and S390x. (CVE-2010-3081)

  • A kernel information leak via the WEXT ioctl was fixed.
    (CVE-2010-2955)

  • A kernel information leak via the XFS filesystem was fixed. (CVE-2010-3078)

  • A kernel information leak in the net eql code was fixed.
    (CVE-2010-3297)

Additionally a data corruption bug in s390 was fixed :

  • A race between /proc/pid/stat and fork in the S390 kernel could lead to data corruption.
