Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Moderate: kernel security, bug fix, and enhancement update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2011:0283-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-0283.html
Issue date: 2011-02-22
CVE Names: CVE-2010-4165 CVE-2010-4169 CVE-2010-4243
================================================== ===================

1. Summary:

Updated kernel packages that fix three security issues, several bugs, and
add two enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

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:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6) - i386, noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node (v. 6) - noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6) - i386, noarch, ppc64, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6) - 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 divide-by-zero flaw was found in the tcp_select_initial_window()
function in the Linux kernel's TCP/IP protocol suite implementation. A
local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to trigger a denial of service
by calling setsockopt() with certain options. (CVE-2010-4165, Moderate)

* A use-after-free flaw in the mprotect() system call in the Linux kernel
could allow a local, unprivileged user to cause a local denial of service.
(CVE-2010-4169, Moderate)

* A flaw was found in the Linux kernel execve() system call implementation.
A local, unprivileged user could cause large amounts of memory to be
allocated but not visible to the OOM (Out of Memory) killer, triggering a
denial of service. (CVE-2010-4243, Moderate)

Red Hat would like to thank Steve Chen for reporting CVE-2010-4165, and
Brad Spengler for reporting CVE-2010-4243.

This update also fixes several bugs and adds two enhancements.
Documentation for these bug fixes and enhancements will be available
shortly from the Technical Notes document linked to in the References
section.

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported
patches to correct these issues, and fix the bugs and add the enhancements
noted in the Technical Notes. 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/kb/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.

Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Moderate: kernel security, bug fix, and enhancement update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2011:1106-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-1106.html
Issue date: 2011-08-02
CVE Names: CVE-2011-1576
================================================== ===================

1. Summary:

Updated kernel packages that fix one security issue, several bugs, and add
various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0
Extended Update Support.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
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 Server (v. 6.0.z) - i386, noarch, 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 issue:

* A flaw allowed napi_reuse_skb() to be called on VLAN (virtual LAN)
packets. An attacker on the local network could trigger this flaw by
sending specially-crafted packets to a target system, possibly causing a
denial of service. (CVE-2011-1576, Moderate)

Red Hat would like to thank Ryan Sweat for reporting this issue.

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* The LSI SAS2 controller firmware issued an 0x620f fault while performing
I/O operations and with a Task Manager running, causing possible data
corruption. This update corrects this issue. (BZ#710625)

* The crashkernel memory region can overlap the RunTime Abstraction
Services (RTAS) memory region. If the crashkernel memory region was freed,
the RTAS memory region was freed as well and the system would crash. With
this update, the crash_free_reserved_phys_range() function is overridden
and overlaps with the RTAS memory region are checked so that system crashes
no longer occur. (BZ#710626)

* If the microcode module was loaded, saving and restoring a Xen guest
returned a warning message and a backtrace error. With this update,
backtrace errors are no longer returned, and saving and restoring a Xen
guest works as expected. (BZ#710632)

* When the Distributed Lock Manager (DLM) queued three callbacks for a lock
in the following sequence: blocking - completion - blocking, it would
consider the final blocking callback redundant and skip it. Because the
callback was skipped, GFS would not release the lock, causing processes on
other nodes to wait indefinitely for it. With this update, the DLM does not
skip the necessary blocking callback. (BZ#710642)

* The XFRM_SUB_POLICY feature causes all bundles to be at the finest
granularity possible. As a result of the data structure used to implement
this, the system performance would drop considerably. This update disables
a part of XFRM_SUB_POLICY, eliminating the poor performance at the cost of
sub-IP address selection granularity in the policy. (BZ#710645)

* A kernel panic in the mpt2sas driver could occur on an IBM system using a
drive with SMART (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology)
issues. This was because the driver was sending an SEP request while the
kernel was in the interrupt context, causing the driver to enter the sleep
state. With this update, a fake event is now executed from the interrupt
context, assuring the SEP request is properly issued. (BZ#714189)

Finally, this update provides the following enhancements:

* This update introduces a kernel module option that allows the Flow
Director to be disabled. (BZ#711549)

* This update introduces parallel port printer support for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6. (BZ#713825)

* This update restricts access to the /proc/kcore file to ELF headers only.
(BZ#710638)

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported
patches to resolve 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
https://access.redhat.com/kb/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/):

695173 - CVE-2011-1576 kernel: net: Fix memory leak/corruption on VLAN GRO_DROP
710632 - xen microcode WARN on save-restore
710638 - kernel: restrict access to /proc/kcore to just elf headers [rhel-6.0.z]
710642 - GFS2: inode glock stuck without holder
710645 - Big performance regression found on connect/request/response test through IPSEC (openswan) transport
713825 - Parallel port issue in RHEL 6.0 server

3. Description:

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

This update fixes the following security issues:

* Numerous reference count leaks were found in the Linux kernel's block
layer I/O context handling implementation. This could allow a local,
unprivileged user to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2012-0879,
Moderate)

* A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's cifs_lookup() implementation.
POSIX open during lookup should only be supported for regular files. When
non-regular files (for example, a named (FIFO) pipe or other special files)
are opened on lookup, it could cause a denial of service. (CVE-2012-1090,
Moderate)

* It was found that the Linux kernel's register set (regset) common
infrastructure implementation did not check if the required get and set
handlers were initialized. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw
to cause a denial of service by performing a register set operation with a
ptrace() PTRACE_SETREGSET or PTRACE_GETREGSET request. (CVE-2012-1097,
Moderate)

Red Hat would like to thank H. Peter Anvin for reporting CVE-2012-1097.

This update also fixes several bugs and adds various enhancements.
Documentation for these changes will be available shortly from the
Technical Notes document linked to in the References section.

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported
patches to correct these issues, and fix the bugs and add the enhancements
noted in the Technical Notes. 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/):

789373 - cifs: multiple process stuck waiting for page lock [rhel-6.2.z]
796829 - CVE-2012-0879 kernel: block: CLONE_IO io_context refcounting issues
798293 - CVE-2012-1090 kernel: cifs: dentry refcount leak when opening a FIFO on lookup leads to panic on unmount
799209 - CVE-2012-1097 kernel: regset: Prevent null pointer reference on readonly regsets
802379 - Anomaly in mbind memory map causing Java Hotspot JVM Seg fault with NUMA aware ParallelScavange GC [rhel-6.2.z]
