Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.9 kernel security and bug fix update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2011:0263-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-0263.html
Issue date: 2011-02-16
CVE Names: CVE-2010-4527 CVE-2010-4655 CVE-2011-0521
================================================== ===================

1. Summary:

Updated kernel packages that fix three security issues, hundreds of bugs,
and add numerous enhancements are now available as part of the ongoing
support and maintenance of Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 4. This is the
ninth regular update.

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 AS version 4 - i386, ia64, noarch, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, 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 buffer overflow flaw was found in the load_mixer_volumes() function in
the Linux kernel's Open Sound System (OSS) sound driver. On 64-bit PowerPC
systems, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial
of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2010-4527, Important)

* A missing boundary check was found in the dvb_ca_ioctl() function in the
Linux kernel's av7110 module. On systems that use old DVB cards that
require the av7110 module, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw
to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges. (CVE-2011-0521,
Important)

* A missing initialization flaw was found in the ethtool_get_regs()
function in the Linux kernel's ethtool IOCTL handler. A local user who has
the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could use this flaw to cause an information
leak. (CVE-2010-4655, Low)

Red Hat would like to thank Dan Rosenberg for reporting CVE-2010-4527, and
Kees Cook for reporting CVE-2010-4655.

These updated kernel packages also fix hundreds of bugs and add numerous
enhancements. For details on individual bug fixes and enhancements included
in this update, refer to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.9 Release Notes,
linked to in the References section.

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported
patches to correct these issues and add these enhancements. 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.
