Advisory ID: RHSA-2016:1631-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise MRG for RHEL-6
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2016-1631.html
Issue date: 2016-08-18
CVE Names: CVE-2016-5696
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for kernel-rt is now available for Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.5.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability
from the CVE link(s) 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 provide the Real Time Linux Kernel, which enables
fine-tuning for systems with extremely high determinism requirements.

It was found that the RFC 5961 challenge ACK rate limiting as implemented
in the Linux kernel's networking subsystem allowed an off-path attacker to
leak certain information about a given connection by creating congestion on
the global challenge ACK rate limit counter and then measuring the changes
by probing packets. An off-path attacker could use this flaw to either
terminate TCP connection and/or inject payload into non-secured TCP
connection between two endpoints on the network. (CVE-2016-5696, Important)

Red Hat would like to thank Yue Cao from Cyber Security Group in the CS
department of University of California, Riverside, for reporting this
issue.

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:
