Default Moderate: kernel-rt security and bug fix update

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

================================================== ===================
Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Moderate: kernel-rt security and bug fix update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2010:0771-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise MRG for RHEL-5
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0771.html
Issue date: 2010-10-14
CVE Names: CVE-2010-0307 CVE-2010-2942 CVE-2010-2955
CVE-2010-3297
================================================== ===================

1. Summary:

Updated kernel-rt packages that fix multiple security issues and upgrade
the kernel-rt kernel to version 2.6.33.7-rt29 are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise MRG 1.3.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
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 5 Server - i386, noarch, x86_64

3. Description:

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

This update fixes the following security issues:

* On AMD64 systems, it was discovered that the kernel did not ensure the
ELF interpreter was available before making a call to the SET_PERSONALITY
macro. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service by
running a 32-bit application that attempts to execute a 64-bit application.
(CVE-2010-0307, Moderate)

* Information leak flaws were found in the Linux kernel Traffic Control
Unit implementation. A local attacker could use these flaws to cause the
kernel to leak kernel memory to user-space, possibly leading to the
disclosure of sensitive information. (CVE-2010-2942, Moderate)

* It was found that wireless drivers might not always clear allocated
buffers when handling a driver-specific IOCTL information request. A local
user could trigger this flaw to cause kernel memory to leak from the heap
to user-space, leading to an information leak. (CVE-2010-2955, Moderate)

* A flaw was found in the eql_g_master_cfg() function in the Linux kernel
equalizer load-balancer for serial network interfaces implementation. A
data structure in eql_g_master_cfg() was not initialized properly before
being copied to user-space. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw
to cause an information leak. (CVE-2010-3297, Moderate)

Red Hat would like to thank Mathias Krause for reporting CVE-2010-0307, and
Dan Rosenberg for reporting CVE-2010-3297.

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* The mkinitrd utility reported the following warning message when creating
an initial ramdisk:

No module dm-mem-cache found for kernel [version], aborting.

This was caused by an erroneous dependency on dmraid-related modules. This
update removes these dependencies with the result that mkinitrd does not
issue a spurious warning about the dm-mem-cache module not being found.
(BZ#482753)

* The ibm_rtl kernel module now performs more exhaustive checking to ensure
it only loads on correct IBM hardware. (BZ#612275)

* The realtime Linux kernel has been upgraded to upstream version
2.6.33.7-rt29, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements for
Red Hat Enterprise MRG 1.3. (BZ#638672)

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which upgrade the kernel-rt
kernel to version 2.6.33.7-rt29 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
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259

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/):

482753 - mkinitrd erroneously inserts dependencies to dm-mem-cache (not present on MRG)
560547 - CVE-2010-0307 kernel: DoS on x86_64
612275 - WARNING: at arch/x86/mm/ioremap.c:148 __ioremap_caller+0x160/0x30e()
624903 - CVE-2010-2942 kernel: net sched: fix some kernel memory leaks
628434 - CVE-2010-2955 kernel: wireless: fix 64K kernel heap content leak via ioctl
633145 - CVE-2010-3297 kernel: drivers/net/eql.c: reading uninitialized stack memory
638672 - Need to move the MRG RT source base to upstream RT (2.6.33)

Advisory ID: RHSA-2012:1150-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise MRG for RHEL-6
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-1150.html
Issue date: 2012-08-08
CVE Names: CVE-2012-2390 CVE-2012-3375
================================================== ===================

1. Summary:

Updated kernel-rt packages that fix two security issues and two bugs are
now available for Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.1.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
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.

This update fixes the following security issues:

* A memory leak flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's memory
subsystem handled resource clean up in the mmap() failure path when the
MAP_HUGETLB flag was set. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to
cause a denial of service. (CVE-2012-2390, Moderate)

* A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Event Poll (epoll)
subsystem handled resource clean up when an ELOOP error code was returned.
A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of
service. (CVE-2012-3375, Moderate)

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* The MRG 2.1 realtime kernel lacked support for automatic memory
reservation for the kdump kernel, as present in Red Hat Enterprise Linux
kernels. Using the parameter crashkernel=auto on the kernel boot command
line led to kdump being disabled because no memory was correctly reserved.
Support for crashkernel=auto has been implemented in the 3.0 realtime
kernel and now when the crashkernel=auto parameter is specified, machines
with more than 4GB of RAM have the amount of memory required by the kdump
kernel calculated and reserved. (BZ#820427)

* The current bnx2x driver in the MRG 2.1 realtime kernel had faulty
support for the network adapter PCI ID 14e4:168e and did not work
correctly. The bnx2x driver was updated to include support for this network
adapter. (BZ#839037)

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which upgrade the kernel-rt
kernel to version kernel-rt-3.0.36-rt57, 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/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/):

824345 - CVE-2012-2390 kernel: huge pages: memory leak on mmap failure
837502 - CVE-2012-3375 kernel: epoll: can leak file descriptors when returning -ELOOP
