Affected Products:
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP1 for VMware
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP1
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension 11 SP1
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 SP1
  • SLE 11 SERVER Unsupported Extras

  • An update that solves 9 vulnerabilities and has 29 fixes is now available. It includes one version update.

    Description:


    The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP1 kernel have been updated
    to fix various bugs and security issues.

    The following security issues have been fixed:

    *

    CVE-2012-3400: Several buffer overread and overwrite
    errors in the UDF logical volume descriptor code were fixed
    that might have allowed local attackers able to mount UDF
    volumes to crash the kernel or potentially gain privileges.

    *

    CVE-2012-3375: A local denial of service in the last
    epoll fix was fixed.

    *

    CVE-2012-2384: A integer overflow in
    i915_gem_do_execbuffer() was fixed that might be used by
    local attackers to crash the kernel or potentially execute
    code.

    *

    CVE-2012-2383: A integer overflow in
    i915_gem_execbuffer2() was fixed that might be used by
    local attackers to crash the kernel or potentially execute
    code.

    *

    CVE-2012-2390: Memiory leaks in the hugetlbfs map
    reservation code were fixed that could be used by local
    attackers to exhaust machine memory.

    *

    CVE-2012-2123: The filesystem cabability handling was
    not fully correct, allowing local users to bypass fscaps
    related restrictions to disable e.g. address space
    randomization.

    *

    CVE-2012-2136: Validation of data_len before
    allocating fragments of skbs was fixed that might have
    allowed a heap overflow.

    *

    CVE-2012-2319: Fixed potential buffer overflows in
    the hfsplus filesystem, which might be exploited by local
    attackers able to mount such filesystems.
