Cross-References: CVE-2012-4444 CVE-2013-1928
Affected Products:

______________________________________________________________________________

An update that solves two vulnerabilities and has 8 fixes
is now available.

Description:


The SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 SP4 kernel has been updated to
fix various bugs and security issues.

Security issues fixed:

*

CVE-2012-4444: The ip6_frag_queue function in
net/ipv6/reassembly.c in the Linux kernel allowed remote
attackers to bypass intended network restrictions via
overlapping IPv6 fragments.

*

CVE-2013-1928: The do_video_set_spu_palette function
in fs/compat_ioctl.c in the Linux kernel lacked a certain
error check, which might have allowed local users to obtain
sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a
crafted VIDEO_SET_SPU_PALETTE ioctl call on a /dev/dvb
device.

Also the following bugs have been fixed:

* hugetlb: Fix regression introduced by the original
patch (bnc#790236, bnc#819403).
* NFSv3/v2: Fix data corruption with NFS short reads
(bnc#818337).
* Fix package descriptions in specfiles (bnc#817666).
* TTY: fix atime/mtime regression (bnc#815745).
* virtio_net: ensure big packets are 64k (bnc#760753).
* virtio_net: refill rx buffers when oom occurs
(bnc#760753).
* qeth: fix qeth_wait_for_threads() deadlock for OSN
devices (bnc#812317, LTC#90910).
* nfsd: remove unnecessary NULL checks from
nfsd_cross_mnt (bnc#810628).
* knfsd: Fixed problem with NFS exporting directories
which are mounted on (bnc#810628).
