The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 kernel was updated to receive two security
fixes.

The following security bugs were fixed:

  • CVE-2016-9576: A use-after-free vulnerability in the SCSI generic driver
    allows users with write access to /dev/sg* or /dev/bsg* to elevate their
    privileges (bsc#1013604).
  • CVE-2016-9794: A use-after-free vulnerability in the ALSA pcm layer
    allowed local users to cause a denial of service, memory corruption or
    possibly even to elevate their privileges (bsc#1013533).
