      Description

      The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP2 kernel was updated to 4.4.59 to receive various security and bugfixes.

      Notable new/improved features:

      • Improved support for Hyper-V
      • Support for Matrox G200eH3
      • Support for tcp_westwood

      The following security bugs were fixed:

      • CVE-2017-2671: The ping_unhash function in net/ipv4/ping.c in the Linux kernel was too late in obtaining a certain lock and consequently could not ensure that disconnect function calls are safe, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (panic) by leveraging access to the protocol value of IPPROTO_ICMP in a socket system call (bnc#1031003).
      • CVE-2017-7308: The packet_set_ring function in net/packet/af_packet.c in the Linux kernel did not properly validate certain block-size data, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted system calls (bnc#1031579).
      • CVE-2017-7294: The vmw_surface_define_ioctl function in drivers/gpu/drm/vmwgfx/vmwgfx_surface.c in the Linux kernel did not validate addition of certain levels data, which allowed local users to trigger an integer overflow and out-of-bounds write, and cause a denial of service (system hang or crash) or possibly gain privileges, via a crafted ioctl call for a /dev/dri/renderD* device (bnc#1031440).
      • CVE-2017-7261: The vmw_surface_define_ioctl function in drivers/gpu/drm/vmwgfx/vmwgfx_surface.c in the Linux kernel did not check for a zero value of certain levels data, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (ZERO_SIZE_PTR dereference, and GPF and possibly panic) via a crafted ioctl call for a /dev/dri/renderD* device (bnc#1031052).
      • CVE-2017-7187: The sg_ioctl function in drivers/scsi/sg.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (stack-based buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a large command size in an SG_NEXT_CMD_LEN ioctl call, leading to out-of-bounds write access in the sg_write function (bnc#1030213).
      • CVE-2017-7374: Use-after-free vulnerability in fs/crypto/ in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference) or possibly gain privileges by revoking keyring keys being used for ext4, f2fs, or ubifs encryption, causing cryptographic transform objects to be freed prematurely (bnc#1032006).
      • CVE-2016-10200: Race condition in the L2TPv3 IP Encapsulation feature in the Linux kernel allowed local users to gain privileges or cause a denial of service (use-after-free) by making multiple bind system calls without properly ascertaining whether a socket has the SOCK_ZAPPED status, related to net/l2tp/l2tp_ip.c and net/l2tp/l2tp_ip6.c (bnc#1028415).
      • CVE-2017-6345: The LLC subsystem in the Linux kernel did not ensure that a certain destructor exists in required circumstances, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (BUG_ON) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted system calls (bnc#1027190).
      • CVE-2017-6346: Race condition in net/packet/af_packet.c in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (use-after-free) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a multithreaded application that made PACKET_FANOUT setsockopt system calls (bnc#1027189).
      • CVE-2017-6353: net/sctp/socket.c in the Linux kernel did not properly restrict association peel-off operations during certain wait states, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (invalid unlock and double free) via a multithreaded application. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2017-5986 (bnc#1027066).
      • CVE-2017-6214: The tcp_splice_read function in net/ipv4/tcp.c in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop and soft lockup) via vectors involving a TCP packet with the URG flag (bnc#1026722).
      • CVE-2016-2117: The atl2_probe function in drivers/net/ethernet/atheros/atlx/atl2.c in the Linux kernel incorrectly enables scatter/gather I/O, which allowed remote attackers to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by reading packet data (bnc#968697).
      • CVE-2017-6347: The ip_cmsg_recv_checksum function in net/ipv4/ip_sockglue.c in the Linux kernel had incorrect expectations about skb data layout, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (buffer over-read) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted system calls, as demonstrated by use of the MSG_MORE flag in conjunction with loopback UDP transmission (bnc#1027179).
      • CVE-2016-9191: The cgroup offline implementation in the Linux kernel mishandled certain drain operations, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (system hang) by leveraging access to a container environment for executing a crafted application (bnc#1008842).
      • CVE-2017-2596: The nested_vmx_check_vmptr function in arch/x86/kvm/vmx.c in the Linux kernel improperly emulated the VMXON instruction, which allowed KVM L1 guest OS users to cause a denial of service (host OS memory consumption) by leveraging the mishandling of page references (bnc#1022785).
      • CVE-2017-6074: The dccp_rcv_state_process function in net/dccp/input.c in the Linux kernel mishandled DCCP_PKT_REQUEST packet data structures in the LISTEN state, which allowed local users to obtain root privileges or cause a denial of service (double free) via an application that made an IPV6_RECVPKTINFO setsockopt system call (bnc#1026024).
