CVE-2015-3290 at MITRE

Description

arch/x86/entry/entry_64.S in the Linux kernel before 4.1.6 on the x86_64 platform improperly relies on espfix64 during nested NMI processing, which allows local users to gain privileges by triggering an NMI within a certain instruction window.

Note from the SUSE Security Team

This issue only affects Linux Kernels with ESPFIX and 16bit segments enabled, and nested NMI sources. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 does not enable ESPFIX or 16bit segments, so it is not affected. SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 and older have no sources of nested NMIs, so can not be exploited. Only openSUSE 13.2 and openSUSE Tumbleweed (201508) are affected.
