Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: kernel security and bug fix update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2016:1939-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2016-1939.html
Issue date: 2016-09-27
CVE Names: CVE-2016-5696
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6
Extended Update Support.

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:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node EUS (v. 6.6) - noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node Optional EUS (v. 6.6) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server EUS (v. 6.6) - i386, noarch, ppc64, s390x,
x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional EUS (v. 6.6) - i386, ppc64, s390x,
x86_64

3. Description:

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

Security Fix(es):

* 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 (Cyber Security Group of the CS
department of University of California in Riverside) for reporting this
issue.

Bug Fix(es):

* Previously, the BUG_ON() signal appeared in the fs_clear_inode() function
where the nfs_have_writebacks() function reported a positive value for
nfs_inode->npages. As a consequence, a kernel panic occurred. The provided
patch performs a serialization by holding the inode i_lock over the check
of PagePrivate and locking the request, which fixes this bug. (BZ#1365163)

4. Solution:

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

https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258

The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

1354708 - CVE-2016-5696 kernel: challenge ACK counter information disclosure.
