Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12-SP3-BCL
______________________________________________________________________________

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

Description:

   The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP3 kernel was updated to receive various
   security and bugfixes.


   The following security bugs were fixed:

   - CVE-2022-29900, CVE-2022-29901: Fixed the RETBLEED attack, a new Spectre
     like Branch Target Buffer attack, that can leak arbitrary kernel
     information (bsc#1199657).
   - CVE-2022-1679: Fixed a use-after-free in the Atheros wireless driver in
     the way a user forces the ath9k_htc_wait_for_target function to fail
     with some input messages (bsc#1199487).
   - CVE-2022-20132: Fixed out of bounds read due to improper input
     validation in lg_probe and related functions of hid-lg.c (bsc#1200619).
   - CVE-2022-33981: Fixed use-after-free in floppy driver (bsc#1200692)
   - CVE-2022-20141: Fixed a possible use after free due to improper locking
     in ip_check_mc_rcu() (bsc#1200604).
   - CVE-2021-4157: Fixed an out of memory bounds write flaw in the NFS
     subsystem, related to the replication of files with NFS. A user could
     potentially crash the system or escalate privileges on the system
     (bsc#1194013).
   - CVE-2021-26341: Some AMD CPUs may transiently execute beyond
     unconditional direct branches, which may potentially result in data
     leakage (bsc#1201050).
   - CVE-2017-16525: Fixed a use-after-free after failed setup in
     usb/serial/console (bsc#1066618).

   The following non-security bugs were fixed:

   - exec: Force single empty string when argv is empty (bsc#1200571).
