Description

The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP4 RT kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes.

The following security bugs were fixed:

  • CVE-2014-9922: The eCryptfs subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges via a large filesystem stack that includes an overlayfs layer, related to fs/ecryptfs/main.c and fs/overlayfs/super.c (bsc#1032340).
  • CVE-2015-3288: mm/memory.c in the Linux kernel mishandled anonymous pages, which allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (page tainting) via a crafted application that triggers writing to page zero (bnc#979021).
  • CVE-2015-8970: crypto/algif_skcipher.c in the Linux kernel did not verify that a setkey operation has been performed on an AF_ALG socket before an accept system call is processed, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a crafted application that did not supply a key, related to the lrw_crypt function in crypto/lrw.c (bnc#1008374 bsc#1008850).
  • CVE-2016-10200: Race condition in the L2TPv3 IP Encapsulation feature in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) by making multiple bind system calls without properly ascertaining whether a socket has the SOCK_ZAPPED status, related to net/l2tp/l2tp_ip.c and net/l2tp/l2tp_ip6.c (bnc#1028415).
  • CVE-2016-2188: The iowarrior_probe function in drivers/usb/misc/iowarrior.c in the Linux kernel allowed physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a crafted endpoints value in a USB device descriptor (bnc#970956).

  • CVE-2017-6348: The hashbin_delete function in net/irda/irqueue.c in the Linux kernel improperly manages lock dropping, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (deadlock) via crafted operations on IrDA devices (bnc#1027178).
  • CVE-2017-6353: net/sctp/socket.c in the Linux kernel did not properly restrict association peel-off operations during certain wait states, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (invalid unlock and double free) via a multithreaded application. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2017-5986 (bnc#1027066).
  • CVE-2017-6951: The keyring_search_aux function in security/keys/keyring.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a request_key system call for the "dead" type (bnc#1029850).
