Updating suse 9 1
It is developed from a common code base with SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop and other SUSE Linux Enterprise products.SLES has been developed based on SUSE Linux by a small team led by Marcus Kraft and Bernhard Kaindl as principal developer who was supported by Joachim Schröder.
In April 2001, the first SLES for x86 was released. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) is a Linux-based operating system developed by SUSE.It is designed for servers, mainframes, and workstations but can be installed on desktop computers for testing as well.Major versions are released at an interval of 3–4 years, while minor versions (called "Service Packs") are released about every 18 months.SUSE Linux Enterprise products, including SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, receive more intense testing than the open SUSE community product, with the intention that only mature, stable versions of the included components will make it through to the released enterprise product.(bsc#967773) - CVE-2015-8812: A flaw was found in the CXGB3 kernel driver when the network was considered congested.
The kernel would incorrectly misinterpret the congestion as an error condition and incorrectly free/clean up the skb.
When the device would then send the skb's queued, these structures would be referenced and may panic the system or allow an attacker to escalate privileges in a use-after-free scenario.
