Description

The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP3 kernel was updated to fix the following security bug :

  • CVE-2017-2636: A race condition in the n_hdlc tty Linux kernel driver (drivers/tty/n_hdlc.c) could have been exploited to gain a local privilege escalation (bnc#1027565)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
