Description:


The SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes.
The following security bugs were fixed:
Unprivileged BPF has been disabled by default to reduce attack surface as too many security issues have happened in the past (jsc#SLE-22573) You can reenable via systemctl setting /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_bpf_disabled to 0. (kernel.unprivileged_bpf_disabled = 0)

  • CVE-2018-3639: Fixed a speculative execution that may allow unauthorized disclosure of information to an attacker with local user access via a side-channel analysis. (bsc#1087082)
  • CVE-2021-20320: Fix a bug that allows a local attacker with special user privilege can circumvent the verifier and may lead to a confidentiality problem. (bsc#1190601)
  • CVE-2021-0941: Fixed A missing sanity check to the current MTU check that may allow a local attacker with special user privilege to gain access to out-of-bounds memory leading to a system crash or a leak of internal kernel information. (bnc#1192045)
  • CVE-2021-31916: Fixed a bound check failure that could allows an attacker with special user (CAP_SYS_ADMIN) privilege to gain access to out-of-bounds memory leading to a system crash, a leak of internal kernel information, or a privilege escalation problem. (bnc#1192781)
  • CVE-2021-20322: Fixed a bug that provides to an attacker the ability to quickly scan open UDP ports. (bsc#1191790)
  • CVE-2021-3772: Fixed an issue that would allow a blind attacker may be able to kill an existing SCTP association through invalid chunks if the attacker knows the IP-addresses and port numbers being used and the attacker can send packets with spoofed IP addresses. (bsc#1190351)
  • CVE-2021-34981: Fixed an issue that allows an attacker with a local account to escalate privileges when CAPI (ISDN) hardware connection fails. (bsc#1191961)
