The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP4 LTSS kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes.

The following security bugs were fixed :

CVE-2020-0305: In cdev_get of char_dev.c, there is a possible use-after-free due to a race condition. This could lead to local escalation of privilege with System execution privileges needed. User interaction is not needed for exploitation (bnc#1174462).

CVE-2019-20908: An issue was discovered in drivers/firmware/efi/efi.c where incorrect access permissions for the efivar_ssdt ACPI variable could be used by attackers to bypass lockdown or secure boot restrictions, aka CID-1957a85b0032 (bnc#1173567).

CVE-2020-15780: An issue was discovered in drivers/acpi/acpi_configfs.c where injection of malicious ACPI tables via configfs could be used by attackers to bypass lockdown and secure boot restrictions, aka CID-75b0cea7bf30 (bnc#1173573).

CVE-2020-15393: usbtest_disconnect in drivers/usb/misc/usbtest.c has a memory leak, aka CID-28ebeb8db770 (bnc#1173514).

CVE-2020-12771: btree_gc_coalesce in drivers/md/bcache/btree.c had a deadlock if a coalescing operation fails (bnc#1171732).

CVE-2019-16746: net/wireless/nl80211.c did not check the length of variable elements in a beacon head, leading to a buffer overflow (bnc#1152107).

CVE-2020-12888: The VFIO PCI driver mishandled attempts to access disabled memory space (bnc#1171868).

CVE-2020-10769: A buffer over-read flaw was found in crypto_authenc_extractkeys in crypto/authenc.c in the IPsec Cryptographic algorithm’s module, authenc. When a payload longer than 4 bytes, and is not following 4-byte alignment boundary guidelines, it causes a buffer over-read threat, leading to a system crash. This flaw allowed a local attacker with user privileges to cause a denial of service (bnc#1173265).

CVE-2020-10773: A kernel stack information leak on s390/s390x was fixed (bnc#1172999).

CVE-2020-14416: A race condition in tty->disc_data handling in the slip and slcan line discipline could lead to a use-after-free, aka CID-0ace17d56824. This affects drivers/net/slip/slip.c and drivers/net/can/slcan.c (bnc#1162002).

CVE-2020-10768: Indirect branch speculation could have been enabled after it was force-disabled by the PR_SPEC_FORCE_DISABLE prctl command. (bnc#1172783).

CVE-2020-10766: Fixed Rogue cross-process SSBD shutdown, where a Linux scheduler logical bug allows an attacker to turn off the SSBD protection. (bnc#1172781).

CVE-2020-10767: Indirect Branch Prediction Barrier was force-disabled when STIBP is unavailable or enhanced IBRS is available.
(bnc#1172782).

CVE-2020-13974: drivers/tty/vt/keyboard.c had an integer overflow if k_ascii is called several times in a row, aka CID-b86dab054059.
(bnc#1172775).

CVE-2019-20810: go7007_snd_init in drivers/media/usb/go7007/snd-go7007.c in the Linux kernel did not call snd_card_free for a failure path, which causes a memory leak, aka CID-9453264ef586 (bnc#1172458).

The update package also includes non-security fixes. See advisory for details.
