An update that solves 13 vulnerabilities and has eight security fixes can now be
installed.

## Description:

The SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 SP3 RT kernel was updated to receive various
security and bugfixes.

The following security bugs were fixed:

  * CVE-2023-4389: Fixed a reference counting issue in the Btrfs filesystem that
    could be exploited in order to leak internal kernel information or crash the
    system (bsc#1214351).
  * CVE-2023-42753: Fixed an array indexing vulnerability in the netfilter
    subsystem. This issue may have allowed a local user to crash the system or
    potentially escalate their privileges (bsc#1215150).
  * CVE-2023-1206: Fixed a hash collision flaw in the IPv6 connection lookup
    table. A user located in the local network or with a high bandwidth
    connection can increase the CPU usage of the server that accepts IPV6
    connections up to 95% (bsc#1212703).
  * CVE-2023-4921: Fixed a use-after-free vulnerability in the QFQ network
    scheduler which could be exploited to achieve local privilege escalatio
    (bsc#1215275).
  * CVE-2023-4004: Fixed improper element removal netfilter nft_set_pipapo
    (bsc#1213812).
  * CVE-2023-4622: Fixed a use-after-free vulnerability in the Unix domain
    sockets component which could be exploited to achieve local privilege
    escalation (bsc#1215117).
  * CVE-2023-4623: Fixed a use-after-free issue in the HFSC network scheduler
    which could be exploited to achieve local privilege escalation
    (bsc#1215115).
  * CVE-2020-36766: Fixed a potential information leak in in the CEC driver
    (bsc#1215299).
  * CVE-2023-1859: Fixed a use-after-free flaw in Xen transport for 9pfs which
    could be exploited to crash the system (bsc#1210169).
  * CVE-2023-2177: Fixed a null pointer dereference issue in the sctp network
    protocol which could allow a user to crash the system (bsc#1210643).
  * CVE-2023-4881: Fixed a out-of-bounds write flaw in the netfilter subsystem
    that could lead to potential information disclosure or a denial of service
    (bsc#1215221).
  * CVE-2023-40283: Fixed use-after-free in l2cap_sock_ready_cb (bsc#1214233).
  * CVE-2023-1192: Fixed use-after-free in cifs_demultiplex_thread()
    (bsc#1208995).

The following non-security bugs were fixed:

  * bnx2x: new flag for track HW resource allocation (bsc#1202845 bsc#1215322).
  * check-for-config-changes: ignore BUILTIN_RETURN_ADDRESS_STRIPS_PAC
    (bsc#1214380). gcc7 on SLE 15 does not support this while later gcc does.
  * locking/rwsem: Disable reader optimistic spinning (bnc#1176588).
  * mkspec: Allow unsupported KMPs (bsc#1214386)
  * scsi: qedf: Add synchronization between I/O completions and abort
    (bsc#1210658).
  * x86/pkeys: Revert a5eff7259790 ("x86/pkeys: Add PKRU value to init_fpstate")
    (bsc#1215356).
  * x86/srso: Do not probe microcode in a guest (git-fixes).
  * x86/srso: Fix SBPB enablement for spec_rstack_overflow=off (git-fixes).
  * x86/srso: Fix srso_show_state() side effect (git-fixes).
  * x86/srso: Set CPUID feature bits independently of bug or mitigation status
    (git-fixes).
