       An update that fixes three vulnerabilities is now available.
       This update for the Linux Kernel 3.12.61-52_125 fixes several issues.
       The following security issues were fixed:
       - CVE-2019-9213: Expand_downwards in mm/mmap.c lacked a check for the mmap
         minimum address, which made it easier for attackers to exploit kernel
         NULL pointer dereferences on non-SMAP platforms. This is related to a
         capability check for the wrong task (bsc#1128378).
       - CVE-2019-7221: Fixed a user-after-free vulnerability in the KVM
         hypervisor related to the emulation of a preemption timer, allowing an
         guest user/process to crash the host kernel. (bsc#1124734).
       - CVE-2018-5391: The Linux kernel was vulnerable to a denial of service
         attack with low rates of specially modified packets targeting IP
         fragment re-assembly. An attacker might have caused a denial of service
         condition by sending specially crafted IP fragments. Various
         vulnerabilities in IP fragmentation have been discovered and fixed over
         the years. The current vulnerability (CVE-2018-5391) became exploitable
         in the Linux kernel with the increase of the IP fragment reassembly
         queue size (bsc#1103098).
