SUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for s390-tools
Announcement ID: SUSE-RU-2020:0626-1
Rating: important
References: #1163006 #1165309 #1165310
Affected Products:
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Basesystem 15-SP1

An update that has three recommended fixes can now be installed.


This update for s390-tools fixes the following issue:

  • Fixes a potential buffer overflow (bsc#1165305)
  • zkey: Fix listing of keys on file systems reporting DT_UNKNOWN. (bsc#1163006) The zkey list function uses scandir() to look for files in the zkey key repository directory. It checks the dirent.d_type field to consider regular files and in the file systems that does not support d_type, such as xfs, will also consider directory entries with d_type = DT_UNKNOWN.
