An update that solves 29 vulnerabilities and has 76 fixes
is now available. It includes one version update.

Description:


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

The following security bugs have been fixed:

*

CVE-2012-2372: The rds_ib_xmit function in net/rds/ib_send.c in the
Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS) protocol implementation in the Linux
kernel 3.7.4 and earlier allows local users to cause a denial of service
(BUG_ON and kernel panic) by establishing an RDS connection with the
source IP address equal to the IPoIB interfaces own IP address, as
demonstrated by rds-ping. (bnc#767610)

*

CVE-2013-2929: The Linux kernel before 3.12.2 does not properly use
the get_dumpable function, which allows local users to bypass intended
ptrace restrictions or obtain sensitive information from IA64 scratch
registers via a crafted application, related to kernel/ptrace.c and
arch/ia64/include/asm/processor.h. (bnc#847652)

*

CVE-2013-4299: Interpretation conflict in
drivers/md/dm-snap-persistent.c in the Linux kernel through 3.11.6 allows
remote authenticated users to obtain sensitive information or modify data
via a crafted mapping to a snapshot block device. (bnc#846404)

*

CVE-2013-4579: The ath9k_htc_set_bssid_mask function in
drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath9k/htc_drv_main.c in the Linux kernel through
3.12 uses a BSSID masking approach to determine the set of MAC addresses
on which a Wi-Fi device is listening, which allows remote attackers to
discover the original MAC address after spoofing by sending a series of
packets to MAC addresses with certain bit manipulations. (bnc#851426)

*

CVE-2013-6382: Multiple buffer underflows in the XFS implementation
in the Linux kernel through 3.12.1 allow local users to cause a denial of
service (memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified
other impact by leveraging the CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability for a (1)
XFS_IOC_ATTRLIST_BY_HANDLE or (2) XFS_IOC_ATTRLIST_BY_HANDLE_32 ioctl call
with a crafted length value, related to the xfs_attrlist_by_handle
function in fs/xfs/xfs_ioctl.c and the xfs_compat_attrlist_by_handle
function in fs/xfs/xfs_ioctl32.c. (bnc#852553)

*

CVE-2013-7339: The rds_ib_laddr_check function in net/rds/ib.c in
the Linux kernel before 3.12.8 allows local users to cause a denial of
service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have
unspecified other impact via a bind system call for an RDS socket on a
system that lacks RDS transports. (bnc#869563)

*

the vhost-net subsystem in the Linux kernel package before 2.6.32-431.11.2
on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6 does not properly handle
vhost_get_vq_desc errors, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of
service (host OS crash) via unspecified vectors. (bnc#870173)

*

CVE-2014-0077: drivers/vhost/net.c in the Linux kernel before
3.13.10, when mergeable buffers are disabled, does not properly validate
packet lengths, which allows guest OS users to cause a denial of service
(memory corruption and host OS crash) or possibly gain privileges on the
host OS via crafted packets, related to the handle_rx and get_rx_bufs
functions. (bnc#870576)

*

CVE-2014-0101: The sctp_sf_do_5_1D_ce function in
net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c in the Linux kernel through 3.13.6 does not
validate certain auth_enable and auth_capable fields before making an
sctp_sf_authenticate call, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via an SCTP
handshake with a modified INIT chunk and a crafted AUTH chunk before a
COOKIE_ECHO chunk. (bnc#866102)

*

CVE-2014-0131: Use-after-free vulnerability in the skb_segment
function in net/core/skbuff.c in the Linux kernel through 3.13.6 allows

the absence of a certain orphaning operation. (bnc#867723)

*

CVE-2014-0155: The ioapic_deliver function in virt/kvm/ioapic.c in
the Linux kernel through 3.14.1 does not properly validate the
kvm_irq_delivery_to_apic return value, which allows guest OS users to
cause a denial of service (host OS crash) via a crafted entry in the
redirection table of an I/O APIC. NOTE: the affected code was moved to the
ioapic_service function before the vulnerability was announced.
(bnc#872540)

*

CVE-2014-1444: The fst_get_iface function in
drivers/net/wan/farsync.c in the Linux kernel before 3.11.7 does not
properly initialize a certain data structure, which allows local users to
obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by leveraging the
CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for an SIOCWANDEV ioctl call. (bnc#858869)

*

CVE-2014-1445: The wanxl_ioctl function in drivers/net/wan/wanxl.c

in the Linux kernel before 3.12.8 does not initialize a certain structure
member, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from
kernel memory by leveraging the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability for an
SIOCYAMGCFG ioctl call. (bnc#858872)

*

CVE-2014-1874: The security_context_to_sid_core function in
security/selinux/ss/services.c in the Linux kernel before 3.13.4 allows
local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) by leveraging the
CAP_MAC_ADMIN capability to set a zero-length security context.
(bnc#863335)

*

CVE-2014-2309: The ip6_route_add function in net/ipv6/route.c in the
Linux kernel through 3.13.6 does not properly count the addition of
routes, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory
consumption) via a flood of ICMPv6 Router Advertisement packets.
(bnc#867531)

*

CVE-2014-2523: net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_proto_dccp.c in the Linux
kernel through 3.13.6 uses a DCCP header pointer incorrectly, which allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash)
or possibly execute arbitrary code via a DCCP packet that triggers a
call to the (1) dccp_new, (2) dccp_packet, or (3) dccp_error function.
(bnc#868653)

*

CVE-2014-2678: The rds_iw_laddr_check function in net/rds/iw.c in
the Linux kernel through 3.14 allows local users to cause a denial of
service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) or possibly have
unspecified other impact via a bind system call for an RDS socket on a
system that lacks RDS transports. (bnc#871561)

*

CVE-2014-2851: Integer overflow in the ping_init_sock function in
net/ipv4/ping.c in the Linux kernel through 3.14.1 allows local users to
cause a denial of service (use-after-free and system crash) or possibly
gain privileges via a crafted application that leverages an improperly
managed reference counter. (bnc#873374)

*

CVE-2014-3122: The try_to_unmap_cluster function in mm/rmap.c in the
Linux kernel before 3.14.3 does not properly consider which pages must be
locked, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system
crash) by triggering a memory-usage pattern that requires removal of
page-table mappings. (bnc#876102)

*

CVE-2014-3144: The (1) BPF_S_ANC_NLATTR and (2)
BPF_S_ANC_NLATTR_NEST extension implementations in the sk_run_filter
function in net/core/filter.c in the Linux kernel through 3.14.3 do not
check whether a certain length value is sufficiently large, which allows
local users to cause a denial of service (integer underflow and system
crash) via crafted BPF instructions. NOTE: the affected code was moved to
the __skb_get_nlattr and __skb_get_nlattr_nest functions before the
vulnerability was announced. (bnc#877257)

*

CVE-2014-3145: The BPF_S_ANC_NLATTR_NEST extension implementation in
the sk_run_filter function in net/core/filter.c in the Linux kernel
through 3.14.3 uses the reverse order in a certain subtraction, which
allows local users to cause a denial of service (over-read and system
crash) via crafted BPF instructions. NOTE: the affected code was moved to
the __skb_get_nlattr_nest function before the vulnerability was announced.
(bnc#877257)

*

the snd_ctl_elem_user_tlv function in sound/core/control.c in the ALSA
control implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 allows local
users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by leveraging
/dev/snd/controlCX access. (bnc#883795)

*

CVE-2014-4653: sound/core/control.c in the ALSA control
implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 does not ensure
possession of a read/write lock, which allows local users to cause a
denial of service (use-after-free) and obtain sensitive information from
kernel memory by leveraging /dev/snd/controlCX access. (bnc#883795)

*

CVE-2014-4654: The snd_ctl_elem_add function in sound/core/control.c
in the ALSA control implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 does
not check authorization for SNDRV_CTL_IOCTL_ELEM_REPLACE commands, which
allows local users to remove kernel controls and cause a denial of service
(use-after-free and system crash) by leveraging /dev/snd/controlCX access
for an ioctl call. (bnc#883795)

*

CVE-2014-4655: The snd_ctl_elem_add function in sound/core/control.c
in the ALSA control implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 does
not properly maintain the user_ctl_count value, which allows local users
to cause a denial of service (integer overflow and limit bypass) by
leveraging /dev/snd/controlCX access for a large number of
SNDRV_CTL_IOCTL_ELEM_REPLACE ioctl calls. (bnc#883795)

*

CVE-2014-4656: Multiple integer overflows in sound/core/control.c in
the ALSA control implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 allow
local users to cause a denial of service by leveraging /dev/snd/controlCX
access, related to (1) index values in the snd_ctl_add function and (2)
numid values in the snd_ctl_remove_numid_conflict function. (bnc#883795)

*

CVE-2014-4699: The Linux kernel before 3.15.4 on Intel processors
does not properly restrict use of a non-canonical value for the saved RIP
address in the case of a system call that does not use IRET, which allows
local users to leverage a race condition and gain privileges, or cause a
denial of service (double fault), via a crafted application that makes
ptrace and fork system calls. (bnc#885725)
