Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation Optional (v. 6) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux
operating system.

This update fixes the following security issues:

* A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the nf_ct_frag6_reasm()
function in the Linux kernel's netfilter IPv6 connection tracking
implementation. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send
specially-crafted packets to a target system that is using IPv6 and also
has the nf_conntrack_ipv6 kernel module loaded, causing it to crash.
(CVE-2012-2744, Important)

* A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's key management facility
handled replacement session keyrings on process forks. A local,
unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service.
(CVE-2012-2745, Moderate)

Red Hat would like to thank an anonymous contributor working with the
Beyond Security SecuriTeam Secure Disclosure program for reporting
CVE-2012-2744.

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* Previously introduced firmware files required for new Realtek chipsets
contained an invalid prefix ("rtl_nic_") in the file names, for example
"/lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl_nic_rtl8168d-1.fw". This update corrects these
file names. For example, the aforementioned file is now correctly named
"/lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8168d-1.fw". (BZ#832359)

* This update blacklists the ADMA428M revision of the 2GB ATA Flash Disk
device. This is due to data corruption occurring on the said device when
the Ultra-DMA 66 transfer mode is used. When the
"libata.force=5io0,6io0" kernel parameter is set, the aforementioned
device works as expected. (BZ#832363)

* On Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, mounting an NFS export from a server
running Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate returned the
NFS4ERR_MINOR_VERS_MISMATCH error because Windows Server 2012 Release
Candidate supports NFSv4.1 only. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 did not
properly handle the returned error and did not fall back to using NFSv3,
which caused the mount operation to fail. With this update, when the
NFS4ERR_MINOR_VERS_MISMATCH error is returned, the mount operation properly
falls back to using NFSv3 and no longer fails. (BZ#832365)

* On ext4 file systems, when fallocate() failed to allocate blocks due to
the ENOSPC condition (no space left on device) for a file larger than 4 GB,
the size of the file became corrupted and, consequently, caused file system
corruption. This was due to a missing cast operator in the
"ext4_fallocate()" function. With this update, the underlying source code
has been modified to address this issue, and file system corruption no
longer occurs. (BZ#833034)

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported
patches to 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/knowledge/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. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

832365 - NFS mounts fail against Windows 8 servers [rhel-6.3.z]
833402 - CVE-2012-2744 kernel: netfilter: null pointer dereference in nf_ct_frag6_reasm()
833428 - CVE-2012-2745 kernel: cred: copy_process() should clear child->replacement_session_keyring

Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: kernel security and bug fix update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2012:1087-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-1087.html
Issue date: 2012-07-17
CVE Names: CVE-2012-2136
================================================== ===================

1. Summary:

Updated kernel packages that fix one security issue and multiple bugs are
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.6 Extended Update Support.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the
CVE link in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux EUS (v. 5.6 server) - i386, ia64, noarch, ppc, s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux
operating system.

This update fixes the following security issue:

* It was found that the data_len parameter of the sock_alloc_send_pskb()
function in the Linux kernel's networking implementation was not validated
before use. A local user with access to a TUN/TAP virtual interface could
use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their
privileges. Note that unprivileged users cannot access TUN/TAP devices
until the root user grants them access. (CVE-2012-2136, Important)

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* An insufficiently designed calculation in the CPU accelerator in the
previous kernel caused an arithmetic overflow in the sched_clock() function
when system uptime exceeded 208.5 days. This overflow led to a kernel panic
on the systems using the Time Stamp Counter (TSC) or Virtual Machine
Interface (VMI) clock source. This update corrects the described
calculation so that this arithmetic overflow and kernel panic can no longer
occur under these circumstances. (BZ#825981, BZ#835449)

* Previously, a race condition between the journal_write_metadata_buffer()
and jbd_unlock_bh_state() functions could occur. Consequently, another
thread could call the get_write_access() function on the buffer head and
cause the wrong data to be written into the journal. If the system
terminated unexpectedly or was shut down incorrectly, subsequent file
system journal replay could result in file system corruption. This update
fixes the race condition and the file system corruption no longer occurs in
the described scenario. (BZ#833764)

* When the kvmclock initialization was used in a guest, it could write to
the Time Stamp Counter (TSC) and, under certain circumstances, could cause
the kernel to become unresponsive on boot. With this update, TSC
synchronization, which is unnecessary due to kvmclock, has been disabled,
thus fixing this bug. (BZ#834557)

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported
patches to 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/knowledge/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. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

816289 - CVE-2012-2136 kernel: net: insufficient data_len validation in sock_alloc_send_pskb()

Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-1129.html
Issue date: 2012-07-31
CVE Names: CVE-2011-1083 CVE-2012-2744
================================================== ===================

1. Summary:

Updated kernel packages that fix two security issues and several bugs are
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2 Extended Update Support.

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:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server EUS (v. 6.2) - i386, noarch, ppc64, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional EUS (v. 6.2) - i386, ppc64, s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux
operating system.

This update fixes the following security issues:

* A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the nf_ct_frag6_reasm()
function in the Linux kernel's netfilter IPv6 connection tracking
implementation. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send
specially-crafted packets to a target system that is using IPv6 and also
has the nf_conntrack_ipv6 kernel module loaded, causing it to crash.
(CVE-2012-2744, Important)

* A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Event Poll (epoll)
subsystem handled large, nested epoll structures. A local, unprivileged
user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2011-1083,
Moderate)

Red Hat would like to thank an anonymous contributor working with the
Beyond Security SecuriTeam Secure Disclosure program for reporting
CVE-2012-2744, and Nelson Elhage for reporting CVE-2011-1083.

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* Attempting to turn on Data Center Bridging (DCB) on a port connected to a
non-DCB switch port caused the system to become unresponsive or even
terminate. This was because napi_poll routines in the ixgbe driver did not
end the NAPI when data processing was complete. With this update, the ixgbe
napi_poll routines have been fixed so that they now call the
napi_complete() function when data processing has finished. This ensures
that the NAPI is correctly disabled, and thus prevents possible hangs and
crashes in this scenario. (BZ#814454)

* If a new file was created on a Network File System version 4 (NFSv4)
share, the ownership was set to nfsnobody (-2) until it was possible to
upcall to the idmapper. As a consequence, subsequent file system operations
could incorrectly use "-2" for the user and group IDs for the given file,
causing certain operations to fail. In reported cases, this issue also
caused "Viminfo file is not writable" errors for users running Vim with
files on an NFSv4 share. (BZ#820962)

* Previously, the size of the multicast IGMP (Internet Group Management
Protocol) snooping hash table for a bridge was limited to 256 entries even
though the maximum is 512. This was due to the hash table size being
incorrectly compared to the maximum hash table size, hash_max, and the
following message could have been produced by the kernel:

Multicast hash table maximum reached, disabling snooping: vnet1, 512

With this update, the hash table value is correctly compared to the
hash_max value, and the error message no longer occurs under these
circumstances. (BZ#840021)

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported
patches to resolve 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/knowledge/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. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

681578 - CVE-2011-1083 kernel: excessive in kernel CPU consumption when creating large nested epoll structures
833402 - CVE-2012-2744 kernel: netfilter: null pointer dereference in nf_ct_frag6_reasm()

Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, noarch, ppc, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, noarch, x86_64

3. Description:

The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux
operating system.

This update fixes the following security issues:

* A flaw was found in the way socket buffers (skb) requiring TSO (TCP
segment offloading) were handled by the sfc driver. If the skb did not fit
within the minimum-size of the transmission queue, the network card could
repeatedly reset itself. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause a
denial of service. (CVE-2012-3412, Important)

* A use-after-free flaw was found in the xacct_add_tsk() function in the
Linux kernel's taskstats subsystem. A local, unprivileged user could use
this flaw to cause an information leak or a denial of service.
(CVE-2012-3510, Moderate)

* A buffer overflow flaw was found in the hfs_bnode_read() function in the
HFS Plus (HFS+) file system implementation in the Linux kernel. A local
user able to mount a specially-crafted HFS+ file system image could use
this flaw to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges.
(CVE-2012-2319, Low)

* A flaw was found in the way the msg_namelen variable in the rds_recvmsg()
function of the Linux kernel's Reliable Datagram Sockets (RDS) protocol
implementation was initialized. A local, unprivileged user could use this
flaw to leak kernel stack memory to user-space. (CVE-2012-3430, Low)

Red Hat would like to thank Ben Hutchings of Solarflare (tm) for reporting
CVE-2012-3412, and Alexander Peslyak for reporting CVE-2012-3510. The
CVE-2012-3430 issue was discovered by the Red Hat InfiniBand team.

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* The cpuid_whitelist() function, masking the Enhanced Intel SpeedStep
(EST) flag from all guests, prevented the "cpuspeed" service from working
in the privileged Xen domain (dom0). CPU scaling was therefore not
possible. With this update, cpuid_whitelist() is aware whether the domain
executing CPUID is privileged or not, and enables the EST flag for dom0.
(BZ#846125)

* If a delayed-allocation write was performed before quota was enabled,
the kernel displayed the following warning message:

WARNING: at fs/quota/dquot.c:988 dquot_claim_space+0x77/0x112()

This was because information about the delayed allocation was not recorded
in the quota structure. With this update, writes prior to enabling quota
are properly accounted for, and the message is not displayed. (BZ#847326)

* In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.9, the DSCP (Differentiated Services Code
Point) netfilter module now supports mangling of the DSCP field.
(BZ#847327)

* Some subsystems clear the TIF_SIGPENDING flag during error handling in
fork() paths. Previously, if the flag was cleared, the ERESTARTNOINTR error
code could be returned. The underlying source code has been modified so
that the error code is no longer returned. (BZ#847359)

* An unnecessary check for the RXCW.CW bit could cause the Intel e1000e NIC
(Network Interface Controller) to not work properly. The check has been
removed so that the Intel e1000e NIC works as expected. (BZ#852448)

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported
patches to 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/knowledge/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. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

819471 - CVE-2012-2319 kernel: Buffer overflow in the HFS plus filesystem (different issue than CVE-2009-4020)
820039 - CVE-2012-3430 kernel: recv{from,msg}() on an rds socket can leak kernel memory
844714 - CVE-2012-3412 kernel: sfc: potential remote denial of service through TCP MSS option
847326 - WARNING: at fs/dquot.c:814 dquot_claim_reserved_space() in dmesg [rhel-5.8.z]
849722 - CVE-2012-3510 kernel: taskstats: use-after-free in xacct_add_tsk()

Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: kernel security and bug fix update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2012:1347-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-1347.html
Issue date: 2012-10-09
CVE Names: CVE-2012-2319 CVE-2012-3412
================================================== ===================

1. Summary:

Updated kernel packages that fix two security issues and one bug are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.6 Extended Update Support.

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:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux EUS (v. 5.6 server) - i386, ia64, noarch, ppc, s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux
operating system.

This update fixes the following security issues:

* A flaw was found in the way socket buffers (skb) requiring TSO (TCP
segment offloading) were handled by the sfc driver. If the skb did not fit
within the minimum-size of the transmission queue, the network card could
repeatedly reset itself. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause a
denial of service. (CVE-2012-3412, Important)

* A buffer overflow flaw was found in the hfs_bnode_read() function in the
HFS Plus (HFS+) file system implementation in the Linux kernel. A local
user able to mount a specially-crafted HFS+ file system image could use
this flaw to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges.
(CVE-2012-2319, Low)

Red Hat would like to thank Ben Hutchings of Solarflare (tm) for reporting
CVE-2012-3412.

This update also fixes the following bug:

* Some subsystems clear the TIF_SIGPENDING flag during error handling in
fork() paths. Previously, if the flag was cleared, the ERESTARTNOINTR error
code could be returned. The underlying source code has been modified so
that the error code is no longer returned. (BZ#855754)

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported
patches to 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.
