Announcement ID: SUSE-SU-2019:0326-1
Rating: important
References: #1119947
Affected Products:
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12-LTSS

An update that fixes one vulnerability is now available.


This update for the Linux Kernel 3.12.61-52_128 fixes one issue.
The following security issue was fixed:

  • CVE-2018-16884: A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's NFS41+ subsystem. NFS41+ shares mounted in different network namespaces at the same time could make bc_svc_process() use wrong back-channel IDs and cause a use-after-free vulnerability. Thus a malicious container user could cause a host kernel memory corruption and a system panic. Due to the nature of the flaw, privilege escalation cannot be fully ruled out (bsc#1119947).
