This update for the Linux Kernel 3.12.60-52_57 fixes one issue.

The following security bugs were fixed:

  • CVE-2017-15274: security/keys/keyctl.c in the Linux kernel did not consider the case of a NULL payload in conjunction with a nonzero length value, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted add_key or keyctl system call (bsc#1045327).
  • CVE-2017-1000251: The native Bluetooth stack in the Linux Kernel (BlueZ) was vulnerable to a stack overflow vulnerability in the processing of L2CAP configuration responses resulting in Remote code execution in kernel space (bsc#1057950).
