      The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP3 kernel was updated to 4.4.180 to receive
      various security and bugfixes.

      The following security bugs were fixed:

      • CVE-2019-11477: A sequence of SACKs may have been crafted such that one
        can trigger an integer overflow, leading to a kernel panic.
      • CVE-2019-11478: It was possible to send a crafted sequence of SACKs
        which will fragment the TCP retransmission queue. An attacker may have
        been able to further exploit the fragmented queue to cause an expensive
        linked-list walk for subsequent SACKs received for that same TCP
      • CVE-2019-11479: An attacker could force the Linux kernel to segment its
        responses into multiple TCP segments. This would drastically increased
        the bandwidth required to deliver the same amount of data. Further, it
        would consume additional resources such as CPU and NIC processing power.
      • CVE-2019-3846: A flaw that allowed an attacker to corrupt memory and
        possibly escalate privileges was found in the mwifiex kernel module
        while connecting to a malicious wireless network. (bnc#1136424)
      • CVE-2019-12382: An issue was discovered in drm_load_edid_firmware in
        drivers/gpu/drm/drm_edid_load.c in the Linux kernel, there was an
        unchecked kstrdup of fwstr, which might have allowed an attacker to
        cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash).
      • CVE-2019-5489: The mincore() implementation in mm/mincore.c in the Linux
        kernel allowed local attackers to observe page cache access patterns of
        other processes on the same system, potentially allowing sniffing of
        secret information. (Fixing this affects the output of the fincore
        program.) Limited remote exploitation may have been possible, as
        demonstrated by latency differences in accessing public files from an
        Apache HTTP Server. (bnc#1120843)
      • CVE-2019-11833: fs/ext4/extents.c in the Linux kernel did not zero out
        the unused memory region in the extent tree block, which might have
        allowed local users to obtain sensitive information by reading
        uninitialized data in the filesystem. (bnc#1135281)
      • CVE-2018-7191: In the tun subsystem in the Linux kernel,
        dev_get_valid_name was not called before register_netdevice. This
        allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer
        dereference and panic) via an ioctl(TUNSETIFF) call with a dev name
        containing a / character. (bnc#1135603)
      • CVE-2019-11190: The Linux kernel allowed local users to bypass ASLR on
        setuid programs (such as /bin/su) because install_exec_creds() was
        called too late in load_elf_binary() in fs/binfmt_elf.c, and thus the
        ptrace_may_access() check had a race condition when reading
        /proc/pid/stat. (bnc#1132472)
      • CVE-2019-11815: An issue was discovered in rds_tcp_kill_sock in
        net/rds/tcp.c in the Linux kernel There was a race condition leading to
        a use-after-free, related to net namespace cleanup. (bnc#1134537)
      • CVE-2019-11884: The do_hidp_sock_ioctl function in
        net/bluetooth/hidp/sock.c in the Linux kernel allowed a local user to
        obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a
        HIDPCONNADD command, because a name field may not end with a '\0'
        character. (bnc#1134848)
      • CVE-2018-17972: An issue was discovered in the proc_pid_stack function
        in fs/proc/base.c in the Linux kernel It did not ensure that only root
        may inspect the kernel stack of an arbitrary task, allowing a local
        attacker to exploit racy stack unwinding and leak kernel task stack
        contents. (bnc#1110785)
      • CVE-2019-11486: The Siemens R3964 line discipline driver in
        drivers/tty/n_r3964.c in the Linux kernel had multiple race conditions.
