-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 ===================================================================== Red Hat Security Advisory Synopsis: Important: kernel-rt security update Advisory ID: RHSA-2014:0557-01 Product: Red Hat Enterprise MRG for RHEL-6 Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-0557.html Issue date: 2014-05-27 CVE Names: CVE-2014-0100 CVE-2014-0196 CVE-2014-1737 CVE-2014-1738 CVE-2014-2672 CVE-2014-2678 CVE-2014-2706 CVE-2014-2851 CVE-2014-3122 ===================================================================== 1. Summary: Updated kernel-rt packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.5. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having Important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. 2. Relevant releases/architectures: MRG Realtime for RHEL 6 Server v.2 - noarch, x86_64 3. Description: The kernel-rt packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. * A race condition leading to a use-after-free flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's TCP/IP protocol suite implementation handled the addition of fragments to the LRU (Last-Recently Used) list under certain conditions. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system by sending a large amount of specially crafted fragmented packets to that system. (CVE-2014-0100, Important) * A race condition flaw, leading to heap-based buffer overflows, was found in the way the Linux kernel's N_TTY line discipline (LDISC) implementation handled concurrent processing of echo output and TTY write operations originating from user space when the underlying TTY driver was PTY. An unprivileged, local user could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-0196, Important) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's floppy driver handled user space provided data in certain error code paths while processing FDRAWCMD IOCTL commands. A local user with write access to /dev/fdX could use this flaw to free (using the kfree() function) arbitrary kernel memory. (CVE-2014-1737, Important) * It was found that the Linux kernel's floppy driver leaked internal kernel memory addresses to user space during the processing of the FDRAWCMD IOCTL command. A local user with write access to /dev/fdX could use this flaw to obtain information about the kernel heap arrangement. (CVE-2014-1738, Low) Note: A local user with write access to /dev/fdX could use these two flaws (CVE-2014-1737 in combination with CVE-2014-1738) to escalate their privileges on the system. * A use-after-free flaw was found in the way the ping_init_sock() function of the Linux kernel handled the group_info reference counter. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-2851, Important) * It was found that a remote attacker could use a race condition flaw in the ath_tx_aggr_sleep() function to crash the system by creating large network traffic on the system's Atheros 9k wireless network adapter. (CVE-2014-2672, Moderate) * A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the rds_iw_laddr_check() function in the Linux kernel's implementation of Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS). A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-2678, Moderate) * A race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's mac80211 subsystem implementation handled synchronization between TX and STA wake-up code paths. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-2706, Moderate) * It was found that the try_to_unmap_cluster() function in the Linux kernel's Memory Managment subsystem did not properly handle page locking in certain cases, which could potentially trigger the BUG_ON() macro in the mlock_vma_page() function. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-3122, Moderate) Red Hat would like to thank Matthew Daley for reporting CVE-2014-1737 and CVE-2014-1738. The CVE-2014-0100 issue was discovered by Nikolay Aleksandrov of Red Hat. Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which upgrade the kernel-rt kernel to version kernel-rt-3.10.33-rt32.34 and correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect. 4. Solution: Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied. This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at https://access.redhat.com/site/articles/11258 To install kernel packages manually, use "rpm -ivh [package]". Do not use "rpm -Uvh" as that will remove the running kernel binaries from your system. You may use "rpm -e" to remove old kernels after determining that the new kernel functions properly on your system. 5.
