An update that solves 15 vulnerabilities and has 50 fixes
is now available.

Description:

The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Service Pack 3 kernel was
updated to 3.0.82 and to fix various bugs and security
issues.

Following security issues were fixed: CVE-2013-1774: The
chase_port function in drivers/usb/serial/io_ti.c in the
Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of
service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via an
attempted /dev/ttyUSB read or write operation on a
disconnected Edgeport USB serial converter.

CVE-2013-0160: Timing side channel on attacks were possible
on /dev/ptmx that could allow local attackers to predict
keypresses like e.g. passwords. This has been fixed again
by updating accessed/modified time on the pty devices in
resolution of 8 seconds, so that idle time detection can
still work.

CVE-2013-3222: The vcc_recvmsg function in net/atm/common.c
in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain length
variable, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive
information from kernel stack memory via a crafted recvmsg
or recvfrom system call.

CVE-2013-3223: The ax25_recvmsg function in
net/ax25/af_ax25.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a
certain data structure, which allowed local users to obtain
sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a
crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

CVE-2013-3224: The bt_sock_recvmsg function in
net/bluetooth/af_bluetooth.c in the Linux kernel did not
properly initialize a certain length variable, which
allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from
kernel stack memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom
system call.

CVE-2013-3225: The rfcomm_sock_recvmsg function in
net/bluetooth/rfcomm/sock.c in the Linux kernel did not
initialize a certain length variable, which allowed local
users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack
memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

CVE-2013-3227: The caif_seqpkt_recvmsg function in
net/caif/caif_socket.c in the Linux kernel did not
initialize a certain length variable, which allowed local
users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack
memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

CVE-2013-3228: The irda_recvmsg_dgram function in
net/irda/af_irda.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a
certain length variable, which allowed local users to
obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a
crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

CVE-2013-3229: The iucv_sock_recvmsg function in
net/iucv/af_iucv.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a
certain length variable, which allowed local users to
obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a
crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

CVE-2013-3231: The llc_ui_recvmsg function in
net/llc/af_llc.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a
certain length variable, which allowed local users to
obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a
crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

CVE-2013-3232: The nr_recvmsg function in
net/netrom/af_netrom.c in the Linux kernel did not
initialize a certain data structure, which allowed local
users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack
memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

CVE-2013-3234: The rose_recvmsg function in
net/rose/af_rose.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a
certain data structure, which allowed local users to obtain
sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a
crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

CVE-2013-3235: net/tipc/socket.c in the Linux kernel did
not initialize a certain data structure and a certain
length variable, which allowed local users to obtain
sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a
crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

CVE-2013-3076: The crypto API in the Linux kernel did not
initialize certain length variables, which allowed local
users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack
memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call,
related to the hash_recvmsg function in crypto/algif_hash.c
and the skcipher_recvmsg function in
crypto/algif_skcipher.c.

CVE-2013-1979: The scm_set_cred function in
include/net/scm.h in the Linux kernel used incorrect uid
and gid values during credentials passing, which allowed
local users to gain privileges via a crafted application.

A kernel information leak via tkill/tgkill was fixed.
