   An update that fixes two vulnerabilities is now available.

Description:

   This update for the Linux Kernel 4.12.14-122_37 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).
