                    CVE-2022-24448 (SUSE): 5.5 CVSS:3.1/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N

Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12-SP2-BCL

   An update that solves 7 vulnerabilities and has four fixes
   is now available.


   The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP2 kernel was updated to receive various
   security and bugfixes.

   Transient execution side-channel attacks attacking the Branch History
   Buffer (BHB), named "Branch Target Injection" and "Intra-Mode Branch
   History Injection" are now mitigated.

   The following security bugs were fixed:

   - CVE-2022-0001: Fixed Branch History Injection vulnerability
   - CVE-2022-0002: Fixed Intra-Mode Branch Target Injection vulnerability
   - CVE-2022-0617: Fixed a null pointer dereference in UDF file system
     functionality. A local user could crash the system by triggering
     udf_file_write_iter() via a malicious UDF image. (bsc#1196079)
   - CVE-2022-0492: Fixed a privilege escalation related to cgroups v1
     release_agent feature, which allowed bypassing namespace isolation
     unexpectedly (bsc#1195543).
   - CVE-2022-24448: Fixed an issue in fs/nfs/dir.c. If an application sets
     the O_DIRECTORY flag, and tries to open a regular file,
     nfs_atomic_open() performs a regular lookup. If a regular file is found,
     ENOTDIR should have occured, but the server instead returned
     uninitialized data in the file descriptor (bsc#1195612).
   - CVE-2021-0920: Fixed a local privilege escalation due to a
     use-after-free bug in unix_gc (bsc#1193731).
   - CVE-2016-10905: Fixed a use-after-free is gfs2_clear_rgrpd() and
     read_rindex_entry() (bsc#1146312).

   The following non-security bug was fixed:

   - net: sched: sch_teql: fix null-pointer dereference (bsc#1190717).
