______________________________________________________________________________

 

Announcement ID: SUSE-SU-2013:0341-1

Rating: important

References: #779577 #803056 #804154

Cross-References: CVE-2013-0871

Affected Products:

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2 for VMware

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2

SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension 11 SP2

SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 SP2

______________________________________________________________________________

 

An update that solves one vulnerability and has two fixes

is now available. It includes one version update.

 

Description:

 

 

The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP2 kernel has been updated to

fix two issues:

 

One severe security issue:

 

* CVE-2013-0871: A race condition in ptrace(2) could be

used by local attackers to crash the kernel and/or execute

code in kernel context.

 

One severe regression issue:

 

* A regression in UNIX domain socket credential

passing. The default disabling of passing credentials

caused regression in some software packages that did not

expect this. One major software package affected by this

was the Open Enterprise Server stack.

 

Security Issue reference:

 

* CVE-2013-0871

 

 

Indications:

 

Everyone using the Linux Kernel on x86_64 architecture should update.

 

Special Instructions and Notes:

 

Please reboot the system after installing this update.
