An update that solves 10 vulnerabilities and has 29 fixes
is now available. It includes one version update.

Description:


The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP1 kernel has been updated to
2.6.32.54, fixing numerous bugs and security issues.

The following security issues have been fixed:

* A potential hypervisor escape by issuing SG_IO
commands to partitiondevices was fixed by restricting
access to these commands. ( CVE-2011-4127
<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2011-4127
> )
* KEYS: Fix a NULL pointer deref in the user-defined
key type, which allowed local attackers to Oops the kernel.
(CVE-2011-4110
<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2011-4110
> )
* Avoid potential NULL pointer deref in ghash, which
allowed local attackers to Oops the kernel. (CVE-2011-4081
<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2011-4081
> )
* Fixed a memory corruption possibility in xfs
readlink, which could be used by local attackers to crash
the system or potentially execute code by mounting a
prepared xfs filesystem image. (CVE-2011-4077
<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2011-4077
> )
* A overflow in the xfs acl handling was fixed that
could be used by local attackers to crash the system or
potentially execute code by mounting a prepared xfs
filesystem image. (CVE-2012-0038
<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2012-0038
> )
* A flaw in the ext3/ext4 filesystem allowed a local
attacker to crash the kernel by getting a prepared
ext3/ext4 filesystem mounted. ( CVE-2011-4132
<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2011-4132
> )
* Access to the taskstats /proc file was restricted to
avoid local attackers gaining knowledge of IO of other
users (and so effecting side-channel attacks for e.g.
guessing passwords by typing speed). ( CVE-2011-2494
<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2011-2494
> )
* When using X.25 communication a malicious sender
could corrupt data structures, causing crashes or potential
code execution. Please note that X.25 needs to be setup to
make this effective, which these days is usually not the
case. (CVE-2010-3873
<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2010-3873
> )
* When using X.25 communication a malicious sender
could make the machine leak memory, causing crashes. Please
note that X.25 needs to be setup to make this effective,
which these days is usually not the case. (CVE-2010-4164
<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2010-4164
> )
* A remote denial of service due to a NULL pointer
dereference by using IPv6 fragments was fixed.
(CVE-2011-2699
<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2011-2699
> )
