                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12-SP1-LTSS

______________________________________________________________________________

   An update that solves 40 vulnerabilities and has 9 fixes is
   now available.

Description:



   The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP1 kernel was updated to receive various
   security and bugfixes.


   The following security bugs were fixed:

   - CVE-2018-12207: Untrusted virtual machines on Intel CPUs could exploit a
     race condition in the Instruction Fetch Unit of the Intel CPU to cause a
     Machine Exception during Page Size Change, causing the CPU core to be
     non-functional.

   The Linux Kernel KVM hypervisor was adjusted to avoid page size changes in
   executable pages by splitting / merging huge pages into small pages as
   needed. More information can be found on
   https://www.suse.com/support/kb/doc/?id=7023735

   - CVE-2019-11135: Aborting an asynchronous TSX operation on Intel CPUs
     with Transactional Memory support could be used to facilitate
     sidechannel information leaks out of microarchitectural buffers, similar
     to the previously described "Microarchitectural Data Sampling" attack.

   The Linux kernel was supplemented with the option to disable TSX operation
   altogether (requiring CPU Microcode updates on older systems) and better
   flushing of microarchitectural buffers (VERW).

   The set of options available is described in our TID at
   https://www.suse.com/support/kb/doc/?id=7024251

   - CVE-2019-16233: drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/qla_os.c did not check the
     alloc_workqueue return value, leading to a NULL pointer dereference.
     (bsc#1150457).

   - CVE-2019-10220: Added sanity checks on the pathnames passed to the user
     space. (bsc#1144903).

   - CVE-2019-16232: Fix a potential NULL pointer dereference in the Marwell
     libertas driver (bsc#1150465).

   - CVE-2019-16234: iwlwifi pcie driver did not check the alloc_workqueue
     return value, leading to a NULL pointer dereference. (bsc#1150452).

   - CVE-2019-17055: The AF_ISDN network module in the Linux kernel did not
     enforce CAP_NET_RAW, which meant that unprivileged users could create a
     raw socket (bnc#1152782).

   - CVE-2019-17056: The AF_NFC network module did not enforce CAP_NET_RAW,
     which meant that unprivileged users could create a raw socket
     (bsc#1152788).

   - CVE-2019-16413: The 9p filesystem did not protect i_size_write()
     properly, which caused an i_size_read() infinite loop and denial of
     service on SMP systems (bnc#1151347).

   - CVE-2019-15902: A backporting issue was discovered that re-introduced
     the Spectre vulnerability it had aimed to eliminate. This occurred
     because the backport process depends on cherry picking specific commits,
     and because two (correctly ordered) code lines were swapped
     (bnc#1149376).

   - CVE-2019-15291: Fixed a NULL pointer dereference issue that could be
     caused by a malicious USB device (bnc#11465).

   - CVE-2019-15807: Fixed a memory leak in the SCSI module that could be
     abused to cause denial of service (bnc#1148938).

   - CVE-2019-14821: An out-of-bounds access issue was fixed in the kernel's
     KVM hypervisor. An unprivileged host user or process with access to
     '/dev/kvm' device could use this flaw to crash the host kernel,
     resulting in a denial of service or potentially escalating privileges on
     the system (bnc#1151350).

   - CVE-2019-15505: An out-of-bounds issue had been fixed that could be
     caused by crafted USB device traffic (bnc#1147122).

   - CVE-2017-18595: A double free in allocate_trace_buffer was fixed
     (bnc#1149555).

   - CVE-2019-14835: A buffer overflow flaw was found in the kernel's vhost
     functionality that translates virtqueue buffers to IOVs. A privileged
     guest user able to pass descriptors with invalid length to the host
     could use this flaw to increase their privileges on the host
     (bnc#1150112).

   - CVE-2019-15216: A NULL pointer dereference was fixed that could be
     malicious USB device (bnc#1146361).

   - CVE-2019-9456: An out-of-bounds write in the USB monitor driver has been
     fixed. This issue could lead to local escalation of privilege with
     System execution privileges needed. (bnc#1150025).

   - CVE-2019-15926: An out-of-bounds access was fixed in the
     drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath6kl module. (bnc#1149527).

   - CVE-2019-15927: An out-of-bounds access was fixed in the sound/usb/mixer
     module (bnc#1149522).

   - CVE-2019-15219: A NULL pointer dereference was fixed that could be
     abused by a malicious USB device (bnc#1146524).

   - CVE-2019-15220: A use-after-free issue was fixed that could be caused by
     a malicious USB device (bnc#1146526).

   - CVE-2019-15221: A NULL pointer dereference was fixed that could be
     caused by a malicious USB device (bnc#1146529).

   - CVE-2019-14814: A heap-based buffer overflow was fixed in the marvell
     wifi chip driver. That issue allowed local users to cause a denial of
     service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code (bnc#1146512).

   - CVE-2019-14815: A missing length check while parsing WMM IEs was fixed
     (bsc#1146512, bsc#1146514, bsc#1146516).

   - CVE-2019-14816: A heap-based buffer overflow in the marvell wifi chip
     driver was fixed. Local users would have abused this issue to cause a
     denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code
     (bnc#1146516).

   - CVE-2017-18509: An issue in net/ipv6 as fixed. By setting a specific
     socket
     option, an attacker could control a pointer in kernel land and cause an
      inet_csk_listen_stop general protection fault, or potentially execute
      arbitrary code under certain circumstances. The issue can be triggered
      as root (e.g., inside a default LXC container or with the CAP_NET_ADMIN
      capability) or after namespace unsharing. (bnc#1145477)

   - CVE-2019-9506: The Bluetooth BR/EDR specification used to permit
     sufficiently low encryption key length and did not prevent an attacker
     from influencing the key length negotiation. This allowed practical
     brute-force attacks (aka "KNOB") that could decrypt traffic and inject
     arbitrary ciphertext without the victim noticing (bnc#1137865).

   - CVE-2019-15098: A NULL pointer dereference in drivers/net/wireless/ath
     was fixed (bnc#1146378).

   - CVE-2019-15290: A NULL pointer dereference in
     ath6kl_usb_alloc_urb_from_pipe was fixed (bsc#1146378).

   - CVE-2019-15212: A double-free issue was fixed in drivers/usb driver
     (bnc#1146391).

   - CVE-2016-10906: A use-after-free issue was fixed in
     drivers/net/ethernet/arc (bnc#1146584).

   - CVE-2019-15217: A a NULL pointer dereference issue caused by a malicious
     USB device was fixed in the drivers/media/usb/zr364xx driver
     (bnc#1146519).

   - CVE-2019-15218: A NULL pointer dereference caused by a malicious USB
     device was fixed in the drivers/media/usb/siano driver (bnc#1146413).

   - CVE-2019-15215: A use-after-free issue caused by a malicious USB device
     was fixed in the drivers/media/usb/cpia2 driver (bnc#1146425).

   - CVE-2018-20976: A use-after-free issue was fixed in the fs/xfs driver
     (bnc#1146285).

   - CVE-2017-18551: An out-of-bounds write was fixed in the drivers/i2c
     driver (bnc#1146163).

   - CVE-2019-10207: Add checks for missing tty operations to prevent
     unprivileged user to  execute 0x0 address (bsc#1142857 bsc#1123959)

   - CVE-2019-15118: ALSA: usb-audio: Fix a stack buffer overflow bug in
     check_input_term leading to kernel stack exhaustion (bsc#1145922).

   - array_index_nospec: Sanitize speculative array (bsc#1155671)
   - hpsa: move lockup_detected attribute to host attr (bsc#999278,
     bsc#1153119).
   - ib/core: Add mitigation for Spectre V1 (bsc#1155671)
   - kvm: Convert kvm_lock to a mutex (bsc#1117665).
   - kvm: MMU: drop read-only large sptes when creating lower level sptes
     (bsc#1117665).
   - kvm: vmx, svm: always run with EFER.NXE=1 when shadow paging is active
     (bsc#1117665).
   - kvm: x86: make FNAME(fetch) and __direct_map more similar (bsc#1117665).
   - media: smsusb: better handle optional alignment (bsc#1146413).
   - mwifiex: Fix heap overflow in mwifiex_uap_parse_tail_ies() (bsc#1137944).
   - netfilter: nf_nat: do not bug when mapping already exists (bsc#1146612).
   - tcp: Be more careful in tcp_fragment() (bsc#1137586 bsc#1139751).
