An update that fixes four vulnerabilities is now available.


This update contains a kernel live patch for the 3.12.43-52.6 SUSE Linux
Enterprise Server 12 Kernel, fixing following security issues.

- CVE-2015-5364/CVE-2015-5366: Two denial of service attacks via a flood
of UDP packets with invalid checksums were fixed that could be used by
remote attackers to delay execution. (bsc#939276)

- CVE-2015-1805: The (1) pipe_read and (2) pipe_write implementations in
fs/pipe.c in the Linux kernel did not properly consider the side effects
of failed __copy_to_user_inatomic and __copy_from_user_inatomic calls,
which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (system crash)
or possibly gain privileges via a crafted application, aka an "I/O
vector array overrun." (bsc#939270)

- CVE-2015-4700: A BPF Jit optimization flaw could allow local users to
panic the kernel. (bsc#939273)
