Category:SuSE Local Security Checks
Title:SUSE: Security Advisory (SUSE-SU-2013:0759-2)
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'Linux kernel' package(s) announced via the SUSE-SU-2013:0759-2 advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'Linux kernel' package(s) announced via the SUSE-SU-2013:0759-2 advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP2 kernel has been updated to 3.0.74 fix various security issues and bugs:

This update brings some features:

* Updated HD-audio drivers for Nvidia/AMD HDMI and Haswell audio (FATE#314311 FATE#313695)
* Lustre enablement patches were added (FATE#314679).
* SGI UV (Ultraviolet) platform support. (FATE#306952)

Security issues fixed in this update:

* CVE-2013-0349: The hidp_setup_hid function in net/bluetooth/hidp/core.c in the Linux kernel did not properly copy a certain name field, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by setting a long name and making an HIDPCONNADD ioctl call.
* CVE-2012-2137: Buffer overflow in virt/kvm/irq_comm.c in the KVM subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (crash) and to possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors related to Message Signaled Interrupts (MSI), irq routing entries, and an incorrect check by the setup_routing_entry function before invoking the kvm_set_irq function.
* CVE-2012-6549: The isofs_export_encode_fh function in fs/isofs/export.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain structure member, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel heap memory via a crafted application.
* CVE-2012-6548: The udf_encode_fh function in fs/udf/namei.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain structure member, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel heap memory via a crafted application.
* CVE-2013-0160: Timing side channel on attacks were possible on /dev/ptmx that could allow local attackers to predict keypresses like e.g. passwords. This has been fixed by not updating accessed/modified time on the pty devices.
Note that this might break pty idle detection, so it might get reverted again.
* CVE-2013-0216: The Xen netback functionality in the Linux kernel allowed guest OS users to cause a denial of service (loop) by triggering ring pointer corruption.
* CVE-2013-0231: The pciback_enable_msi function in the PCI backend driver
(drivers/xen/pciback/conf_space_capability_msi.c) in Xen for the Linux allowed guest OS users with PCI device access to cause a denial of service via a large number of kernel log messages.
* CVE-2013-0311: The translate_desc function in drivers/vhost/vhost.c in the Linux kernel did not properly handle cross-region descriptors, which allowed guest OS users to obtain host OS privileges by leveraging KVM guest OS privileges.
* CVE-2013-0913: Integer overflow in drivers/gpu/drm/i915/i915_gem_execbuffer.c in the i915 driver in the Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed local users to cause a denial of service (heap-based buffer overflow) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted application that triggers many relocation copies, and potentially leads to a race condition.
* CVE-2013-0914: The flus... [Please see the references for more information on the vulnerabilities]
