Red Hat Security Advisory 2015-1221-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's virtual console implementation handled reference counting when accessing pseudo-terminal device files. A local, unprivileged attacker could use this flaw to crash the system. It was found that the Linux kernel's ping socket implementation did not properly handle socket unhashing during spurious disconnects, which could lead to a use-after-free flaw. On x86-64 architecture systems, a local user able to create ping sockets could use this flaw to crash the system. On non-x86-64 architecture systems, a local user able to create ping sockets could use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system.

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

1. Summary:

Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues, several bugs,
and add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Moderate security
impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give
detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the
CVE links in the References section.

3. Description:

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

* A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's
virtual console implementation handled reference counting when accessing
pseudo-terminal device files (/dev/pts/*). A local, unprivileged attacker
could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2011-5321, Moderate)

* It was found that the Linux kernel's ping socket implementation did not
properly handle socket unhashing during spurious disconnects, which could
lead to a use-after-free flaw. On x86-64 architecture systems, a local user
able to create ping sockets could use this flaw to crash the system.
On non-x86-64 architecture systems, a local user able to create ping
sockets could use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system.
(CVE-2015-3636, Moderate)

* An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel randomized
the stack for processes on certain 64-bit architecture systems, such as
x86-64, causing the stack entropy to be reduced by four. (CVE-2015-1593,
Low)

* A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's 32-bit emulation
implementation handled forking or closing of a task with an 'int80' entry.
A local user could potentially use this flaw to escalate their privileges
on the system. (CVE-2015-2830, Low)

* It was found that the Linux kernel's TCP/IP protocol suite implementation
for IPv6 allowed the Hop Limit value to be set to a smaller value than the
default one. An attacker on a local network could use this flaw to prevent
systems on that network from sending or receiving network packets.
(CVE-2015-2922, Low)

These updated kernel packages also include numerous bug fixes and one
enhancement. Space precludes documenting all of these changes in this
advisory. For information on the most significant of these changes, users
are directed to the following article on the Red Hat Customer Portal:

https://access.redhat.com/articles/1506133

All kernel users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct these issues and add this
enhancement. 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.

For details on how to apply this update, refer to:

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

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

1192519 - CVE-2015-1593 kernel: Linux stack ASLR implementation Integer overflow
1201887 - CVE-2011-5321 Kernel: tty: driver reference leakage in tty_open
1203712 - CVE-2015-2922 kernel: denial of service (DoS) attack against IPv6 network stacks due to improper handling of Router Advertisements.
1208598 - CVE-2015-2830 kernel: int80 fork from 64-bit tasks mishandling
1218074 - CVE-2015-3636 kernel: ping sockets: use-after-free leading to local privilege escalation
