Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12-SP5

   An update that solves 13 vulnerabilities and has 20 fixes
   is now available.


   The SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP5 kernel was updated to receive various
   security and bugfixes.

   The following security bugs were fixed:

   - CVE-2018-7755: Fixed an issue in the fd_locked_ioctl function in
     drivers/block/floppy.c. The floppy driver will copy a kernel pointer to
     user memory in response to the FDGETPRM ioctl. An attacker can send the
     FDGETPRM ioctl and use the obtained kernel pointer to discover the
     location of kernel code and data and bypass kernel security protections
     such as KASLR (bnc#1084513).
   - CVE-2019-20811: Fixed issue in rx_queue_add_kobject() and
     netdev_queue_add_kobject() in net/core/net-sysfs.c, where a reference
     count is mishandled (bnc#1172456).
   - CVE-2021-20292: Fixed object validation prior to performing operations
     on the object in nouveau_sgdma_create_ttm in Nouveau DRM subsystem
   - CVE-2021-20321: Fixed a race condition accessing file object in the
     OverlayFS subsystem in the way users do rename in specific way with
     OverlayFS. A local user could have used this flaw to crash the system
   - CVE-2021-38208: Fixed a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and
     BUG) by making a getsockname call after a certain type of failure of a
     bind call (bnc#1187055).
   - CVE-2021-43389: Fixed an array-index-out-of-bounds flaw in the
     detach_capi_ctr function in drivers/isdn/capi/kcapi.c (bnc#1191958).
   - CVE-2022-1011: Fixed a use-after-free flaw inside the FUSE filesystem in
     the way a user triggers write(). This flaw allowed a local user to gain
     unauthorized access to data from the FUSE filesystem, resulting in
     privilege escalation (bnc#1197343).
   - CVE-2022-1280: Fixed a use-after-free vulnerability in drm_lease_held in
     drivers/gpu/drm/drm_lease.c (bnc#1197914).
   - CVE-2022-1353: Fixed access controll to kernel memory in the
     pfkey_register function in net/key/af_key.c (bnc#1198516).
   - CVE-2022-1419: Fixed a concurrency use-after-free in
     vgem_gem_dumb_create (bsc#1198742).
   - CVE-2022-1516: Fixed null-ptr-deref caused by x25_disconnect
   - CVE-2022-23960: Fixed speculation issues in the Branch History Buffer
     that allowed an attacker to obtain sensitive information using cache
     allocation (bnc#1196657).
   - CVE-2022-28748: Fixed memory lead over the network by ax88179_178a
     devices (bsc#1196018).
