Description

LSAC(v2)
The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 SP2 kernel has been updated to fix two issues: One severe security issue: * CVE-2013-0871: A race condition in ptrace(2) could be used by local attackers to crash the kernel and/or execute code in kernel context. One severe regression issue: * A regression in UNIX domain socket credential passing. The default disabling of passing credentials caused regression in some software packages that did not expect this. One major software package affected by this was the Open Enterprise Server stack.
