Description

The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP3 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed :

  • CVE-2017-1000405: A bug in the THP CoW support could be used by local attackers to corrupt memory of other processes and cause them to crash (bnc#1069496).

  • CVE-2017-16939: The XFRM dump policy implementation in net/xfrm/xfrm_user.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) via a crafted SO_RCVBUF setsockopt system call in conjunction with XFRM_MSG_GETPOLICY Netlink messages (bnc#1069702).

The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details.

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.
