An update that solves 36 vulnerabilities and has 22 fixes
is now available.

Description:



The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 GA LTS kernel was updated to receive various
security and bugfixes.

The following security bugs were fixed:

- CVE-2017-15649: net/packet/af_packet.c in the Linux kernel allowed local
users to gain privileges via crafted system calls that trigger
mishandling of packet_fanout data structures, because of a race
condition (involving fanout_add and packet_do_bind) that leads to a
use-after-free, a different vulnerability than CVE-2017-6346
(bnc#1064388).
- CVE-2015-9004: kernel/events/core.c in the Linux kernel mishandled
counter grouping, which allowed local users to gain privileges via a
crafted application, related to the perf_pmu_register and
perf_event_open functions (bnc#1037306).
- CVE-2016-10229: udp.c in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code via UDP traffic that triggers an unsafe second
checksum calculation during execution of a recv system call with the
MSG_PEEK flag (bnc#1032268).
- CVE-2016-9604: The handling of keyrings starting with '.' in
KEYCTL_JOIN_SESSION_KEYRING, which could have allowed local users to
manipulate privileged keyrings, was fixed (bsc#1035576)
- CVE-2017-1000363: Linux drivers/char/lp.c Out-of-Bounds Write. Due to a
missing bounds check, and the fact that parport_ptr integer is static, a
'secure boot' kernel command line adversary (can happen due to
bootloader vulns, e.g. Google Nexus 6's CVE-2016-10277, where due to a
vulnerability the adversary has partial control over the command line)
can overflow the parport_nr array in the following code, by appending
many (>LP_NO) 'lp=none' arguments to the command line (bnc#1039456).
- CVE-2017-1000365: The Linux Kernel imposes a size restriction on the
arguments and environmental strings passed through
RLIMIT_STACK/RLIM_INFINITY (1/4 of the size), but did not take the
argument and environment pointers into account, which allowed attackers
to bypass this limitation. (bnc#1039354).
- CVE-2017-1000380: sound/core/timer.c in the Linux kernel is vulnerable
to a data race in the ALSA /dev/snd/timer driver resulting in local
users being able to read information belonging to other users, i.e.,
uninitialized memory contents may be disclosed when a read and an ioctl
happen at the same time (bnc#1044125).
- CVE-2017-10661: Race condition in fs/timerfd.c in the Linux kernel
allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service
(list corruption or use-after-free) via simultaneous file-descriptor
operations that leverage improper might_cancel queueing (bnc#1053152).
- CVE-2017-11176: The mq_notify function in the Linux kernel did not set
the sock pointer to NULL upon entry into the retry logic. During a
user-space close of a Netlink socket, it allowed attackers to cause a
denial of service (use-after-free) or possibly have unspecified other
impact (bnc#1048275).
- CVE-2017-12153: A security flaw was discovered in the
nl80211_set_rekey_data() function in net/wireless/nl80211.c in the Linux
kernel This function did not check whether the required attributes are
present in a Netlink request. This request can be issued by a user with
the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability and may result in a NULL pointer
dereference and system crash (bnc#1058410).
- CVE-2017-12154: The prepare_vmcs02 function in arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the
Linux kernel did not ensure that the "CR8-load exiting" and "CR8-store
exiting" L0 vmcs02 controls exist in cases where L1 omits the "use TPR
shadow" vmcs12 control, which allowed KVM L2 guest OS users to obtain
read and write access to the hardware CR8 register (bnc#1058507).
- CVE-2017-12762: In /drivers/isdn/i4l/isdn_net.c: A user-controlled
buffer is copied into a local buffer of constant size using strcpy
without a length check which can cause a buffer overflow. (bnc#1053148).
- CVE-2017-13080: Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA and WPA2) allowed
reinstallation of the Group Temporal Key (GTK) during the group key
handshake, allowing an attacker within radio range to replay frames from
access points to clients (bnc#1063667).
- CVE-2017-14051: An integer overflow in the
qla2x00_sysfs_write_optrom_ctl function in
drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/qla_attr.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users
to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) by
leveraging root access (bnc#1056588).
- CVE-2017-14106: The tcp_disconnect function in net/ipv4/tcp.c in the
Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service
(__tcp_select_window divide-by-zero error and system crash) by
triggering a disconnect within a certain tcp_recvmsg code path
(bnc#1056982).
- CVE-2017-14140: The move_pages system call in mm/migrate.c in the Linux
kernel doesn't check the effective uid of the target process, enabling a
local attacker to learn the memory layout of a setuid executable despite
ASLR (bnc#1057179).
- CVE-2017-15265: Use-after-free vulnerability in the Linux kernel allowed
local users to have unspecified impact via vectors related to
/dev/snd/seq (bnc#1062520).
- CVE-2017-15274: security/keys/keyctl.c in the Linux kernel did not
consider the case of a NULL payload in conjunction with a nonzero length
value, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL
pointer dereference and OOPS) via a crafted add_key or keyctl system
call, a different vulnerability than CVE-2017-12192 (bnc#1045327).
- CVE-2017-2647: The KEYS subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed local
users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (NULL pointer
dereference and system crash) via vectors involving a NULL value for a
certain match field, related to the keyring_search_iterator function in
keyring.c (bnc#1030593).
- CVE-2017-6951: The keyring_search_aux function in
security/keys/keyring.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause
a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) via a
request_key system call for the "dead" type (bnc#1029850).
- CVE-2017-7482: A potential memory corruption was fixed in decoding of
krb5 principals in the kernels kerberos handling. (bnc#1046107).
- CVE-2017-7487: The ipxitf_ioctl function in net/ipx/af_ipx.c in the
Linux kernel mishandled reference counts, which allowed local users to
cause a denial of service (use-after-free) or possibly have unspecified
other impact via a failed SIOCGIFADDR ioctl call for an IPX interface
(bnc#1038879).
- CVE-2017-7518: The Linux kernel was vulnerable to an incorrect debug
exception(#DB) error. It could occur while emulating a syscall
instruction and potentially lead to guest privilege escalation.
(bsc#1045922).
- CVE-2017-7541: The brcmf_cfg80211_mgmt_tx function in
drivers/net/wireless/broadcom/brcm80211/brcmfmac/cfg80211.c in the Linux
kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow
and system crash) or possibly gain privileges via a crafted
NL80211_CMD_FRAME Netlink packet (bnc#1049645).
- CVE-2017-7542: The ip6_find_1stfragopt function in
net/ipv6/output_core.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause
a denial of service (integer overflow and infinite loop) by leveraging
the ability to open a raw socket (bnc#1049882).
- CVE-2017-7889: The mm subsystem in the Linux kernel did not properly
enforce the CONFIG_STRICT_DEVMEM protection mechanism, which allowed
local users to read or write to kernel memory locations in the first
megabyte (and bypass slab-allocation access restrictions) via an
application that opens the /dev/mem file, related to arch/x86/mm/init.c
and drivers/char/mem.c (bnc#1034405).
- CVE-2017-8106: The handle_invept function in arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the
Linux kernel 3.12 allowed privileged KVM guest OS users to cause a
denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and host OS crash) via a
single-context INVEPT instruction with a NULL EPT pointer (bnc#1035877).
- CVE-2017-8831: The saa7164_bus_get function in
drivers/media/pci/saa7164/saa7164-bus.c in the Linux kernel allowed
local users to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access) or
possibly have unspecified other impact by changing a certain
sequence-number value, aka a "double fetch" vulnerability (bnc#1037994).
- CVE-2017-8890: The inet_csk_clone_lock function in
net/ipv4/inet_connection_sock.c in the Linux kernel allowed attackers to
cause a denial of service (double free) or possibly have unspecified
other impact by leveraging use of the accept system call (bnc#1038544).
- CVE-2017-8924: The edge_bulk_in_callback function in
drivers/usb/serial/io_ti.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to
obtain sensitive information (in the dmesg ringbuffer and syslog) from
uninitialized kernel memory by using a crafted USB device (posing as an
io_ti USB serial device) to trigger an integer underflow (bnc#1037182
bsc#1038982).
- CVE-2017-8925: The omninet_open function in drivers/usb/serial/omninet.c
in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service
(tty exhaustion) by leveraging reference count mishandling (bnc#1037183
bsc#1038981).
- CVE-2017-9074: The IPv6 fragmentation implementation in the Linux kernel
did not consider that the nexthdr field may be associated with an
invalid option, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service
(out-of-bounds read and BUG) or possibly have unspecified other impact
via crafted socket and send system calls (bnc#1039882).
- CVE-2017-9075: The sctp_v6_create_accept_sk function in net/sctp/ipv6.c
