Description

This update for the Linux Kernel 4.4.121-92_80 fixes one issue. The following security issue was fixed :

  • CVE-2018-1000199: A bug in x86 debug register handling of ptrace() could lead to memory corruption, possibly a denial of service or privilege escalation (bsc#1090036).

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.
