Description

The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP5 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes.

The following security bugs were fixed :

CVE-2020-10768: The prctl() function could be used to enable indirect branch speculation even after it has been disabled. (bnc#1172783)

CVE-2020-10766: A bug in the logic handling could allow an attacker with a local account to disable SSBD protection. (bnc#1172781)

CVE-2020-10767: A IBPB would be disabled when STIBP was not available or when Enhanced Indirect Branch Restricted Speculation (IBRS) was available. This is unexpected behaviour could leave the system open to a spectre v2 style attack (bnc#1172782)

CVE-2020-13974: drivers/tty/vt/keyboard.c had an integer overflow if k_ascii was called several times in a row (bnc#1172775)

CVE-2019-20810: go7007_snd_init did not call snd_card_free for a failure path, which caused a memory leak (bnc#1172458)

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.
