Advisory ID:       RHSA-2018:1170-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise MRG for RHEL-6
Advisory URL:      https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2018:1170
Issue date:        2018-04-17
CVE Names:         CVE-2017-8824 CVE-2017-9725 CVE-2017-13166

=====================================================================

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:

Red Hat 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):

* kernel: Use-after-free vulnerability in DCCP socket (CVE-2017-8824,
Important)

* kernel: v4l2: disabled memory access protection mechanism allowing
privilege escalation (CVE-2017-13166, Important)

* kernel: Incorrect type conversion for size during dma allocation
(CVE-2017-9725, Moderate)

* kernel: Use-after-free in snd_seq_ioctl_create_port() (CVE-2017-15265,
Moderate)

* kernel: Missing namespace check in net/netlink/af_netlink.c allows for
network monitors to observe systemwide activity (CVE-2017-17449, Moderate)

* kernel: netfilter: use-after-free in tcpmss_mangle_packet function in
net/netfilter/xt_TCPMSS.c (CVE-2017-18017, Moderate)

* kernel: Stack information leak in the EFS element (CVE-2017-1000410,
Moderate)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS
score, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in
the References section.

Red Hat would like to thank Mohamed Ghannam for reporting CVE-2017-8824 and
Armis Labs for reporting CVE-2017-1000410.

Bug Fix(es):

* The kernel-rt packages have been upgraded to version
3.10.0-693.25.2.rt56.612, which provides a number of security and bug fixes
over the previous version. (BZ#1549731)

* Intel Core X-Series (Skylake) processors use a hardcoded Time Stamp
Counter (TSC) frequency of 25 MHz. In some cases this can be imprecise and
lead to timing-related problems such as time drift, timers being triggered
early, or TSC clock instability. This update mitigates these problems by no
longer using the "native_calibrate_tsc()" function to define the TSC
frequency. Refined calibration is now used to update the clock rate
accordingly in these cases. (BZ#1547854)

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.
