Affected Products:

  * SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP4
  * SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP4 LTSS EXTREME CORE 11-SP4

  
  
An update that solves eight vulnerabilities and contains one feature can now be
installed.

## Description:

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

The following security bugs were fixed:

  * CVE-2023-1077: Fixed a type confusion in pick_next_rt_entity() that could
    cause memory corruption (bsc#1208600).
  * CVE-2023-4623: Fixed a use-after-free issue in the HFSC network scheduler
    which could be exploited to achieve local privilege escalation
    (bsc#1215115).
  * CVE-2023-1192: Fixed use-after-free in cifs_demultiplex_thread()
    (bsc#1208995).
  * CVE-2023-20588: Fixed a potential data leak that could be triggered through
    a side channel when division by zero occurred on some AMD processors
    (bsc#1213927).
  * CVE-2023-4459: Fixed a NULL pointer dereference flaw in the vmxnet3 driver
    that may have allowed a local attacker with user privileges to cause a
    denial of service (bsc#1214451).
  * CVE-2023-3772: Fixed a flaw in the XFRM subsystem that may have allowed a
    malicious user with CAP_NET_ADMIN privileges to directly dereference a NULL
    pointer leading to denial of service (bsc#1213666).
  * CVE-2023-2007: Removed the dpt_i2o driver due to security issues
    (bsc#1210448, jsc#PED-4579).
  * CVE-2023-4385: Fixed a NULL pointer dereference flaw in dbFree that may have
    allowed a local attacker to crash the system due to a missing sanity check
    (bsc#1214348).
