Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: kernel-rt security and bug fix update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2017:0932-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise MRG for RHEL-6
Advisory URL: https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2017:0932
Issue date: 2017-04-12
CVE Names: CVE-2016-8650 CVE-2016-9793 CVE-2017-2618
CVE-2017-2636 CVE-2017-6074
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for kernel-rt is now available for Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.

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.

Security Fix(es):

* A race condition flaw was found in the N_HLDC Linux kernel driver when
accessing n_hdlc.tbuf list that can lead to double free. A local,
unprivileged user able to set the HDLC line discipline on the tty device
could use this flaw to increase their privileges on the system.
(CVE-2017-2636, Important)

* A use-after-free flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Datagram
Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP) implementation freed SKB (socket buffer)
resources for a DCCP_PKT_REQUEST packet when the IPV6_RECVPKTINFO option is
set on the socket. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to alter
the kernel memory, allowing them to escalate their privileges on the
system. (CVE-2017-6074, Important)

* A flaw was found in the Linux kernel key management subsystem in which a
local attacker could crash the kernel or corrupt the stack and additional
memory (denial of service) by supplying a specially crafted RSA key. This
flaw panics the machine during the verification of the RSA key.
(CVE-2016-8650, Moderate)

* A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's implementation of setsockopt for
the SO_{SND|RCV}BUFFORCE setsockopt() system call. Users with non-namespace
CAP_NET_ADMIN are able to trigger this call and create a situation in which
the sockets sendbuff data size could be negative. This could adversely
affect memory allocations and create situations where the system could
crash or cause memory corruption. (CVE-2016-9793, Moderate)

* A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's handling of clearing SELinux
attributes on /proc/pid/attr files. An empty (null) write to this file can
crash the system by causing the system to attempt to access unmapped kernel
memory. (CVE-2017-2618, Moderate)

Red Hat would like to thank Alexander Popov for reporting CVE-2017-2636;
Andrey Konovalov (Google) for reporting CVE-2017-6074; and Ralf Spenneberg
for reporting CVE-2016-8650. The CVE-2017-2618 issue was discovered by Paul
Moore (Red Hat Engineering).

Bug Fix(es):

* The kernel-rt packages have been upgraded to version 3.10.0-514.rt56.219,
which provides a number of bug fix updates over the previous version.
(BZ#1429613)

1428319 - CVE-2017-2636 kernel: Race condition access to n_hdlc.tbuf causes
double free in n_hdlc_release()
1429613 - update the MRG 2.5.z 3.10 kernel-rt sources
