  script_tag(name:"insight", value:"The openSUSE Leap 42.2 kernel was updated to 4.4.104 to receive various
  security and bugfixes.

  This update adds mitigations for various side channel attacks against
  modern CPUs that could disclose content of otherwise unreadable memory
  (bnc#1068032).

  - CVE-2017-5753 / 'SpectreAttack': Local attackers on systems with modern
  CPUs featuring deep instruction pipelining could use attacker
  controllable speculative execution over code patterns in the Linux
  Kernel to leak content from otherwise not readable memory in the same
  address space, allowing retrieval of passwords, cryptographic keys and
  other secrets.

  This problem is mitigated by adding speculative fencing on affected code
  paths throughout the Linux kernel.


  - CVE-2017-5715 / 'SpectreAttack': Local attackers on systems with modern
  CPUs featuring branch prediction could use mispredicted branches to
  speculatively execute code patterns that in turn could be made to leak
  other non-readable content in the same address space, an attack similar
  to CVE-2017-5753.

  This problem is mitigated by disabling predictive branches, depending
  on CPU architecture either by firmware updates and/or fixes in the
  user-kernel privilege boundaries.

  Please also check with your CPU / Hardware vendor on updated firmware
  or BIOS images regarding this issue.

  As this feature can have a performance impact, it can be disabled using
  the 'nospec' kernel commandline option.


  - CVE-2017-5754 / 'MeltdownAttack': Local attackers on systems with modern
  CPUs featuring deep instruction pipelining could use code patterns in
  userspace to speculative executive code that would read
  otherwise read protected memory, an attack similar to CVE-2017-5753.

  This problem is mitigated by unmapping the Linux Kernel from the user
  address space during user code execution, following an approach called
  'KAISER'. The terms used here are 'KAISER' / 'Kernel Address Isolation'
  and 'PTI' / 'Page Table Isolation'.

  Note that this is only done on affected platforms.

  This feature can be enabled / disabled by the 'pti=[onoffauto]' or
  'nopti' commandline options.

  The following security bugs were fixed:

  - CVE-2017-17806: The HMAC implementation (crypto/hmac.c) in the Linux
  kernel did not validate that the underlying cryptographic hash algorithm
  is unkeyed, allowing a local attacker able to use the AF_ALG-based hash
  interface (CONFIG_CRYPTO_USER_API_HASH) and the SHA-3 hash algorithm
  (CONFIG_CRYPTO_SHA3) to cause a kernel stack buffer overflow by
  executing a crafted sequence of system calls that encounter a missing.

  Description truncated, please see the referenced URL(s) for more information.");
