Synopsis: Important: kernel security update Advisory ID: SLSA-2013:0830-1 Issue Date: 2013-05-16 CVE Numbers: CVE-2013-2094 -- This update fixes the following security issue: * It was found that the Scientific Linux 6.1 kernel update (SLSA-2011:0542) introduced an integer conversion issue in the Linux kernel's Performance Events implementation. This led to a user-supplied index into the perf_swevent_enabled array not being validated properly, resulting in out-of-bounds kernel memory access. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2013-2094, Important) A public exploit that affects Scientific Linux 6 is available. Refer to Red Hat Knowledge Solution 373743 for further information and mitigation instructions for users who are unable to immediately apply this update. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect. -- SL6 x86_64 kernel-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-debug-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-debug-debuginfo-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-debug-devel-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-debuginfo-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-debuginfo-common-x86_64-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-devel-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-headers-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.x86_64.rpm perf-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.x86_64.rpm perf-debuginfo-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.x86_64.rpm python-perf-debuginfo-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.x86_64.rpm python-perf-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.x86_64.rpm i386 kernel-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.i686.rpm kernel-debug-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.i686.rpm kernel-debug-debuginfo-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.i686.rpm kernel-debug-devel-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.i686.rpm kernel-debuginfo-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.i686.rpm kernel-debuginfo-common-i686-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.i686.rpm kernel-devel-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.i686.rpm kernel-headers-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.i686.rpm perf-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.i686.rpm perf-debuginfo-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.i686.rpm python-perf-debuginfo-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.i686.rpm python-perf-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.i686.rpm noarch kernel-doc-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.noarch.rpm kernel-firmware-2.6.32-358.6.2.el6.noarch.rpm - Scientific Linux Development Team
