   SUSE Security Update: Security update for the Linux Kernel (Live Patch 6 for SLE 12 SP3)

Announcement ID:    SUSE-SU-2018:3865-1
Rating:             important
References:         #1103098 #1112039 
Cross-References:   CVE-2018-18386 CVE-2018-5391
Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Live Patching 12-SP3

   An update that fixes two vulnerabilities is now available.


   This update for the Linux Kernel 4.4.103-6_33 fixes several issues.

   The following security issues were fixed:

   - CVE-2018-5391: Fixed a possible denial of service attack with low rates
     of specially modified packets targeting IP fragment re-assembly. An
     attacker may cause a denial of service condition by sending specially
     crafted IP fragments. The current vulnerability (CVE-2018-5391) became
     exploitable in the Linux kernel with the increase of the IP fragment
     reassembly queue size (bsc#1103098).
   - CVE-2018-18386: The drivers/tty/n_tty.c allowed local attackers (who are
     able to access pseudo terminals) to hang/block further usage of any
     pseudo terminal devices due to an EXTPROC versus ICANON confusion in
     TIOCINQ (bsc#1112039).
