   An update that solves 14 vulnerabilities and has 38 fixes
   is now available.

Description:

   The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Service Pack 2 kernel was
   updated to Linux kernel 3.0.80, fixing various bugs and
   security issues.

   Following security issues were fixed: CVE-2013-0160: Timing
   side channel on attacks were possible on /dev/ptmx that
   could allow local attackers to predict keypresses like e.g.
   passwords. This has been fixed again by updating
   accessed/modified time on the pty devices in resolution of
   8 seconds, so that idle time detection can still work.

   CVE-2013-3222: The vcc_recvmsg function in net/atm/common.c
   in the Linux kernel did not initialize a certain length
   variable, which allowed local users to obtain sensitive
   information from kernel stack memory via a crafted recvmsg
   or recvfrom system call.

   CVE-2013-3223: The ax25_recvmsg function in
   net/ax25/af_ax25.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a
   certain data structure, which allowed local users to obtain
   sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a
   crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

   CVE-2013-3224: The bt_sock_recvmsg function in
   net/bluetooth/af_bluetooth.c in the Linux kernel did not
   properly initialize a certain length variable, which
   allowed local users to obtain sensitive information from
   kernel stack memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom
   system call.

   CVE-2013-3225: The rfcomm_sock_recvmsg function in
   net/bluetooth/rfcomm/sock.c in the Linux kernel did not
   initialize a certain length variable, which allowed local
   users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack
   memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

   CVE-2013-3227: The caif_seqpkt_recvmsg function in
   net/caif/caif_socket.c in the Linux kernel did not
   initialize a certain length variable, which allowed local
   users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack
   memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

   CVE-2013-3228: The irda_recvmsg_dgram function in
   net/irda/af_irda.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a
   certain length variable, which allowed local users to
   obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a
   crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

   CVE-2013-3229: The iucv_sock_recvmsg function in
   net/iucv/af_iucv.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a
   certain length variable, which allowed local users to
   obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a
   crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

   CVE-2013-3231: The llc_ui_recvmsg function in
   net/llc/af_llc.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a
   certain length variable, which allowed local users to
   obtain sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a
   crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

   CVE-2013-3232: The nr_recvmsg function in
   net/netrom/af_netrom.c in the Linux kernel did not
   initialize a certain data structure, which allowed local
   users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack
   memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

   CVE-2013-3234: The rose_recvmsg function in
   net/rose/af_rose.c in the Linux kernel did not initialize a
   certain data structure, which allowed local users to obtain
   sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a
   crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

   CVE-2013-3235: net/tipc/socket.c in the Linux kernel did
   not initialize a certain data structure and a certain
   length variable, which allowed local users to obtain
   sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a
   crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call.

   CVE-2013-3076: The crypto API in the Linux kernel did not
   initialize certain length variables, which allowed local
   users to obtain sensitive information from kernel stack
   memory via a crafted recvmsg or recvfrom system call,
   related to the hash_recvmsg function in crypto/algif_hash.c
   and the skcipher_recvmsg function in
   crypto/algif_skcipher.c.

   CVE-2013-1979: The scm_set_cred function in
   include/net/scm.h in the Linux kernel used incorrect uid
   and gid values during credentials passing, which allowed
   local users to gain privileges via a crafted application.

   A kernel information leak via tkill/tgkill was fixed.
