QID 750868: SUSE Enterprise Linux Security Update for the Linux Kernel (SUSE-SU-2021:2427-1)

The suse linux enterprise 15 sp3 kernel was updated to receive various security and bugfixes.
the following security bugs were fixed: - cve-2021-22555: fixed an heap out-of-bounds write in net/netfilter/x_tables.c that could allow local provilege escalation.
(bsc#1188116) - cve-2021-33624: fixed a bug which allows unprivileged bpf program to leak the contents of arbitrary kernel memory (and therefore, of all physical memory) via a side-channel. (
Bsc#1187554) - cve-2021-0605: fixed an out-of-bounds read which could lead to local information disclosure in the kernel with system execution privileges needed. (
Bsc#1187601) - cve-2021-0512: fixed a possible out-of-bounds write which could lead to local escalation of privilege with no additional execution privileges needed. (
Bsc#1187595) - cve-2020-26558: fixed a flaw in the bluetooth le and br/edr secure pairing that could permit a nearby man-in-the-middle attacker to identify the passkey used during pairing. (
Bnc#1179610) - cve-2021-34693: fixed a bug in net/can/bcm.c which could allow local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory because parts of a data structure are uninitialized. (
Bsc#1187452) - cve-2021-0129: fixed an improper access control in bluez that may have allowed an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via adjacent access. (
Bnc#1186463) - cve-2020-36386: fixed an out-of-bounds read in hci_extended_inquiry_result_evt. (
Bsc#1187038) - cve-2020-24588: fixed a bug that could allow an adversary to abuse devices that support receiving non-ssp a-msdu frames to inject arbitrary network packets. (
Bsc#1185861 bsc#1185863) - cve-2021-33909: fixed an out-of-bounds write in the filesystem layer that allows to andobtain full root privileges. (
Bsc#1188062) - cve-2021-3609: fixed a race condition in the can bcm networking protocol which allows for local privilege escalation. (
Bsc#1187215) - cve-2020-36385: fixed a use-after-free flaw in ucma.c which allows for local privilege escalation. (
Bsc#1187050) - cve-2021-33200: fix leakage of uninitialized bpf stack under speculation. (
Bsc#1186484)
