Synopsis: Important: kernel security, bug fix, and enhancement update Advisory ID: SLSA-2013:0911-1 Issue Date: 2013-06-10 CVE Numbers: CVE-2013-1935 CVE-2013-1943 CVE-2013-2017 -- This update fixes the following security issues: * A flaw was found in the way KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) initialized a guest's registered pv_eoi (paravirtualized end-of-interrupt) indication flag when entering the guest. An unprivileged guest user could potentially use this flaw to crash the host. (CVE-2013-1935, Important) * A missing sanity check was found in the kvm_set_memory_region() function in KVM, allowing a user-space process to register memory regions pointing to the kernel address space. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2013-1943, Important) * A double free flaw was found in the Linux kernel's Virtual Ethernet Tunnel driver (veth). A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to crash a target system. (CVE-2013-2017, Moderate) The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect. -- SL6 x86_64 kernel-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-debug-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-debug-debuginfo-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-debug-devel-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-debuginfo-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-debuginfo-common-x86_64-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-devel-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.x86_64.rpm kernel-headers-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.x86_64.rpm perf-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.x86_64.rpm perf-debuginfo-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.x86_64.rpm python-perf-debuginfo-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.x86_64.rpm python-perf-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.x86_64.rpm i386 kernel-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.i686.rpm kernel-debug-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.i686.rpm kernel-debug-debuginfo-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.i686.rpm kernel-debug-devel-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.i686.rpm kernel-debuginfo-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.i686.rpm kernel-debuginfo-common-i686-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.i686.rpm kernel-devel-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.i686.rpm kernel-headers-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.i686.rpm perf-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.i686.rpm perf-debuginfo-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.i686.rpm python-perf-debuginfo-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.i686.rpm python-perf-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.i686.rpm noarch kernel-doc-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.noarch.rpm kernel-firmware-2.6.32-358.11.1.el6.noarch.rpm - Scientific Linux Development Team
