Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: kernel security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2016:2133-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2016-2133.html
Issue date: 2016-11-01
CVE Names: CVE-2016-4470 CVE-2016-5195
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4
Advanced 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 Server AUS (v. 6.4) - noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional AUS (v. 6.4) - x86_64

3. Description:

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

Security Fix(es):

* A race condition was found in the way the Linux kernel's memory subsystem
handled the copy-on-write (COW) breakage of private read-only memory
mappings. An unprivileged, local user could use this flaw to gain write
access to otherwise read-only memory mappings and thus increase their
privileges on the system. (CVE-2016-5195, Important)

* A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's keyring handling code: the
key_reject_and_link() function could be forced to free an arbitrary memory
block. An attacker could use this flaw to trigger a use-after-free
condition on the system, potentially allowing for privilege escalation.
(CVE-2016-4470, Important)

Red Hat would like to thank Phil Oester for reporting CVE-2016-5195. The
CVE-2016-4470 issue was discovered by David Howells (Red Hat).

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/):

1341716 - CVE-2016-4470 kernel: Uninitialized variable in request_key handling
causes kernel crash in error handling path
1384344 - CVE-2016-5195 kernel: mm: privilege escalation via MAP_PRIVATE COW
