Red Hat Security Advisory 2013-0567-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. This update fixes the following security issue: A race condition was found in the way the Linux kernel's ptrace implementation handled PTRACE_SETREGS requests when the debuggee was woken due to a SIGKILL signal instead of being stopped. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to escalate their privileges.

3. Description:

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

This update fixes the following security issue:

* A race condition was found in the way the Linux kernel's ptrace
implementation handled PTRACE_SETREGS requests when the debuggee was woken
due to a SIGKILL signal instead of being stopped. A local, unprivileged
user could use this flaw to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2013-0871,
Important)

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported
patch to correct this issue. The system must be rebooted for this update to
take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/articles/11258

To install kernel packages manually, use "rpm -ivh [package]". Do not
use "rpm -Uvh" as that will remove the running kernel binaries from
your system. You may use "rpm -e" to remove old kernels after
determining that the new kernel functions properly on your system.

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

911937 - CVE-2013-0871 kernel: race condition with PTRACE_SETREGS
