Affected Products:
openSUSE 13.2

An update that solves 8 vulnerabilities and has 22 fixes is
now available.


The openSUSE 13.2 kernel was updated to version 3.16.7.

These security issues were fixed:
- CVE-2014-9322: A local privilege escalation in the x86_64 32bit
compatibility signal handling was fixed, which could be used by local
attackers to crash the machine or execute code. (bnc#910251)
- CVE-2014-9090: The do_double_fault function in arch/x86/kernel/traps.c
in the Linux kernel did not properly handle faults associated with the
Stack Segment (SS) segment register, which allowed local users to cause
a denial of service (panic) via a modify_ldt system call, as
demonstrated by sigreturn_32 in the linux-clock-tests test suite.
- CVE-2014-8133: Insufficient validation of TLS register usage could leak
information from the kernel stack to userspace. (bnc#909077)
- CVE-2014-3673: The SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel through
3.17.2 allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system
crash) via a malformed ASCONF chunk, related to net/sctp/sm_make_chunk.c
and net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c (bnc#902346, bnc#902349).
- CVE-2014-3687: The sctp_assoc_lookup_asconf_ack function in
net/sctp/associola.c in the SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel
through 3.17.2 allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(panic) via duplicate ASCONF chunks that triggered an incorrect uncork
within the side-effect interpreter (bnc#902349).
- CVE-2014-3688: The SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel before 3.17.4
allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory
consumption) by triggering a large number of chunks in an association's
output queue, as demonstrated by ASCONF probes, related to
net/sctp/inqueue.c and net/sctp/sm_statefuns.c (bnc#902351).
- CVE-2014-7826: kernel/trace/trace_syscalls.c in the Linux kernel through
3.17.2 did not properly handle private syscall numbers during use of the
ftrace subsystem, which allowed local users to gain privileges or cause
a denial of service (invalid pointer dereference) via a crafted
application (bnc#904013).
- CVE-2014-7841: The sctp_process_param function in
net/sctp/sm_make_chunk.c in the SCTP implementation in the Linux kernel
before 3.17.4, when ASCONF is used, allowed remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash) via a
malformed INIT chunk (bnc#905100).
