The remote host is missing an update for the 'Linux Kernel' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the SUSE-SU-2021:3806-1 advisory.

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable Linux Distribution Package version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
The SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 SP3 kernel for Azure was updated to receive various security and bugfixes. The following security bugs were fixed: Unprivileged BPF has been disabled by default to reduce attack surface as too many security issues have happened in the past (jsc#SLE-22573) You can re-enable via systemctl setting /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_bpf_disabled to 0. (kernel.unprivileged_bpf_disabled = 0) CVE-2021-0941: In bpf_skb_change_head of filter.c, there is a possible out of bounds read due to a use after free. This could lead to local escalation of privilege with System execution privileges needed. User interaction is not needed for exploitation (bnc#1192045). CVE-2021-31916: An out-of-bounds (OOB) memory write flaw was found in list_devices in drivers/md/dm-ioctl.c in the Multi-device driver module in the Linux kernel A bound check failure allowed an attacker with special user (CAP_SYS_ADMIN) privilege to gain access to out-of-bounds memory leading to a system crash or a leak of internal kernel information. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability (bnc#1192781). CVE-2021-20322: Make the ipv4 and ipv6 ICMP exception caches less predictive to avoid information leaks about UDP ports in use. (bsc#1191790) CVE-2021-34981: Fixed file refcounting in cmtp when cmtp_attach_device fails (bsc#1191961). CVE-2021-43389: There was an array-index-out-of-bounds flaw in the detach_capi_ctr function in drivers/isdn/capi/kcapi.c (bnc#1191958). CVE-2021-37159: hso_free_net_device in drivers/net/usb/hso.c called unregister_netdev without checking for the NETREG_REGISTERED state, leading to a use-after-free and a double free (bnc#1188601). The following non-security bugs were fixed: ABI: sysfs-kernel-slab: Document some stats (git-fixes). ALSA: hda: fix general protection fault in azx_runtime_idle (git-fixes). ALSA: hda: Free card instance properly at probe errors (git-fixes). ALSA: hda/realtek: Fix mic mute LED for the HP Spectre x360 14 (git-fixes). ALSA: hda: Reduce udelay() at SKL+ position reporting (git-fixes). ALSA: hda: Use position buffer for SKL+ again (git-fixes). ALSA: ua101: fix division by zero at probe (git-fixes). ALSA: uapi: Fix a C++ style comment in asound.h (git-fixes). ALSA: usb-audio: Add Audient iD14 to mixer map quirk table (git-fixes). ALSA: usb-audio: Add minimal-mute notion in dB mapping table (bsc#1192375). ALSA: usb-audio: Add Schiit Hel device to mixer map quirk table (git-fixes). ALSA: usb-audio: Fix dB level of Bose Revolve+ SoundLink (bsc#1192375). ALSA: usb-audio: Use int for dB map values (bsc#1192375). ARM: socfpga: Fix crash with CONFIG_FORTIRY_SOURCE (bsc#1192473). ASoC: cs42l42: Correct some register default values (git-fixes). ASoC: cs42l42: Defer probe if request_threaded_irq() returns EPROBE_DEFER (git-fixes). ASoC: cs42l42: Do not set defaults for volatile ... [Please see the references for more information on the vulnerabilities]

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
