   This update for the Linux Kernel 5.3.18-24_12 fixes several issues.

   The following security issues were fixed:

   - CVE-2020-25212: A TOCTOU mismatch in the NFS client code could be used
     by local attackers to corrupt memory or possibly have unspecified other
     impact because a size check is in fs/nfs/nfs4proc.c instead of
     fs/nfs/nfs4xdr.c (bsc#1176381).
   - CVE-2020-14386: Fixed a memory corruption which could have lead to an
     attacker gaining root privileges from unprivileged processes. The
     highest threat from this vulnerability is to data confidentiality and
     integrity (bsc#1176069).
