Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-2105-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security Fix: A race condition was found in the way the Linux kernel's memory subsystem handled the copy-on-write 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.

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)

Red Hat would like to thank Phil Oester for reporting this issue.

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/):

1384344 - CVE-2016-5195 kernel: mm: privilege escalation via MAP_PRIVATE COW breakage
