Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time Extension 11-SP4
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Debuginfo 11-SP4

   An update that solves 8 vulnerabilities and has 25 fixes is
   now available.


   The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP4 RT kernel was updated to receive various
   security and bugfixes.

   The following security bugs were fixed:

   - CVE-2017-1000251: The native Bluetooth stack was vulnerable to a stack
     overflow vulnerability in the processing of L2CAP configuration
      responses resulting in remote code execution in kernel space
   - CVE-2017-14340: The XFS_IS_REALTIME_INODE macro in fs/xfs/xfs_linux.h
     did not verify that a filesystem has a realtime device, which allowed
     local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and
     OOPS) via vectors related to setting an RHINHERIT flag on a directory
   - CVE-2017-14140: The move_pages system call in mm/migrate.c did not check
     the effective uid of the target process, enabling a local attacker to
     learn the memory layout of a setuid executable despite ASLR
   - CVE-2017-14051: An integer overflow in the
     qla2x00_sysfs_write_optrom_ctl function in
     drivers/scsi/qla2xxx/qla_attr.c allowed local users to cause a denial of
     service (memory corruption and system crash) by leveraging root access
   - CVE-2017-10661: Race condition in fs/timerfd.c allowed local users to
     gain privileges or cause a denial of service (list corruption or
     use-after-free) via simultaneous file-descriptor operations that
     leverage improper might_cancel queueing (bnc#1053152).
   - CVE-2017-12762: In /drivers/isdn/i4l/isdn_net.c a user-controlled buffer
     was copied into a local buffer of constant size using strcpy without a
     length check which can cause a buffer overflow (bnc#1053148).
   - CVE-2017-8831: The saa7164_bus_get function allowed local users to cause
     a denial of service (out-of-bounds array access) or possibly have
     other impact by changing a certain sequence-number value, aka a "double
      fetch" vulnerability (bnc#1037994).
   - CVE-2017-1000112: Prevent race condition in net-packet code that could
     have been exploited by unprivileged users to gain root
