SUSE SLED15 / SLES15 Security Update : kernel (SUSE-SU-2020:1146-1)


The SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 SP1 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed : CVE-2020-8834: KVM on Power8 processors had a conflicting use of HSTATE_HOST_R1 to store r1 state in kvmppc_hv_entry plus in kvmppc_{save,restore}_tm, leading to a stack corruption. Because of this, an attacker with the ability to run code in kernel space of a guest VM can cause the host kernel to panic (bnc#1168276). CVE-2020-11494: An issue was discovered in slc_bump in drivers/net/can/slcan.c, which allowed attackers to read uninitialized can_frame data, potentially containing sensitive information from kernel stack memory, if the configuration lacks CONFIG_INIT_STACK_ALL (bnc#1168424). CVE-2020-10942: In get_raw_socket in drivers/vhost/net.c lacks validation of an sk_family field, which might allow attackers to trigger kernel stack corruption via crafted system calls (bnc#1167629). CVE-2019-9458: In the video driver there was a use after free due to a race condition. This could lead to local escalation of privilege with no additional execution privileges needed (bnc#1168295). CVE-2019-3701: Fixed an issue in can_can_gw_rcv, which could cause a system crash (bnc#1120386). CVE-2019-19770: Fixed a use-after-free in the debugfs_remove function (bsc#1159198). CVE-2020-11669: Fixed an issue where arch/powerpc/kernel/idle_book3s.S did not have save/restore functionality for PNV_POWERSAVE_AMR, PNV_POWERSAVE_UAMOR, and PNV_POWERSAVE_AMOR (bnc#1169390). The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details.

Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
