Description:

The SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 SP1 LTSS kernel was updated to receive
various security and bugfixes.

The following security bugs were fixed:

  • CVE-2022-0435: Fixed remote stack overflow in net/tipc module that
    validate domain record count on input (bsc#1195254).
  • CVE-2022-0330: Fixed flush TLBs before releasing backing store
    (bsc#1194880).
  • CVE-2021-45486: Fixed an information leak because the hash table is very
    small in net/ipv4/route.c (bnc#1194087).
  • CVE-2021-45095: Fixed refcount leak in pep_sock_accept in
    net/phonet/pep.c (bnc#1193867).
  • CVE-2021-44733: Fixed a use-after-free exists in drivers/tee/tee_shm.c
    in the TEE subsystem, that could have occured because of a race
    condition in tee_shm_get_from_id during an attempt to free a shared
    memory object (bnc#1193767).
  • CVE-2021-43976: Fixed a flaw that could allow an attacker (who can
    connect a crafted USB device) to cause a denial of service. (bnc#1192847)
  • CVE-2021-43975: Fixed a flaw in hw_atl_utils_fw_rpc_wait that could
    allow an attacker (who can introduce a crafted device) to trigger an
    out-of-bounds write via a crafted length value. (bsc#1192845)
  • CVE-2021-4202: Fixed NFC race condition by adding NCI_UNREG flag
    (bsc#1194529).

    huge_pmd_unshare (bsc#1192946).
  • CVE-2021-39657: Fixed out of bounds read due to a missing bounds check
    in ufshcd_eh_device_reset_handler of ufshcd.c. This could lead to local
    information disclosure with System execution privileges needed
    (bnc#1193864).
  • CVE-2021-39648: Fixed possible disclosure of kernel heap memory due to a
    race condition in gadget_dev_desc_UDC_show of configfs.c. This could

  • CVE-2021-0935: Fixed possible out of bounds write in ip6_xmit of
    ip6_output.c due to a use after free. This could lead to local
    escalation of privilege with System execution privileges needed. User
    interaction is not needed for exploitation (bnc#1192032).
  • CVE-2021-0920: Fixed a local privilege escalation due to an use after
    free bug in unix_gc (bsc#1193731).

    nouveau’s postclose() handler could happen if removing device
    (bsc#1179599).
  • CVE-2019-15126: Fixed a vulnerability in Broadcom and Cypress Wi-Fi
    chips, used in RPi family of devices aka “Kr00k”. (bsc#1167162)
  • CVE-2018-25020: Fixed an overflow in the BPF subsystem due to a

    (bsc#1190358).
  • kernel-binary.spec.in: add zstd to BuildRequires if used
  • kernel-binary.spec.in: make sure zstd is supported by kmod if used
  • kernel-binary.spec: Check for no kernel signing certificates. Also
    remove unused variable.
  • kernel-binary.spec: Define $image as rpm macro (bsc#1189841).
  • kernel-binary.spec: Do not fail silently when KMP is empty
    (bsc#1190358). Copy the code from kernel-module-subpackage that deals
    with empty KMPs.
  • kernel-binary.spec: Do not sign kernel when no key provided
    (bsc#1187167).
  • kernel-binary.spec: Fix kernel-default-base scriptlets after packaging
    merge.
  • kernel-binary.spec: Require dwarves for kernel-binary-devel when BTF is
    enabled (jsc#SLE-17288).

    well.

    (bsc#1169514).
  • post.sh: detect /usr mountpoint too
  • recordmcount.pl: fix typo in s390 mcount regex (bsc#1192267).
  • recordmcount.pl: look for jgnop instruction as well as bcrl on s390

  • rpm/kernel-binary.spec.in: Use kmod-zstd provide. This makes it possible
    to use kmod with ZSTD support on non-Tumbleweed.
  • rpm/kernel-binary.spec.in: avoid conflicting suse-release suse-release
    had arbitrary values in staging, we can’t use it for dependencies. The
