   An update that fixes four vulnerabilities is now available.


   This update for the Linux Kernel 4.12.14-122_26 fixes several issues.

   The following security issues were fixed:

   - CVE-2020-14381: Fixed a use-after-free in the fast user mutex (futex)
     wait operation, which could have lead to memory corruption and possibly
     privilege escalation (bsc#1176011).
   - 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).
   - CVE-2020-24394: The NFS server code can set incorrect permissions on new
     filesystem objects when the filesystem lacks ACL support. This occurs
     because the current umask is not considered (bsc#1175518).
