Description

This update for the Linux Kernel 3.12.74-60_64_51 fixes several issues. The following security issues were fixed :

  • CVE-2017-16939: The XFRM dump policy implementation in net/xfrm/xfrm_user.c 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 (bsc#1069708).

  • CVE-2017-10661: Race condition in fs/timerfd.c allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (list corruption or use-after-free) via simultaneous file-descriptor operations that leverage improper might_cancel queueing (bsc#1053153).

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.
