Description

This update for the Linux Kernel 3.12.61-52_125 fixes several issues. The following security issue was fixed :

  • CVE-2018-3665: System software utilizing Lazy FP state restore technique on systems using Intel Core-based microprocessors may potentially have allowed a local process to infer data from another process via a speculative execution side channel (bsc#1090338, bsc#1096740).

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.
