Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-1484-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security Fix: A flaw was found in the way memory was being allocated on the stack for user space binaries. If heap and stack memory regions were adjacent to each other, an attacker could use this flaw to jump over the stack guard gap, cause controlled memory corruption on process stack or the adjacent memory region, and thus increase their privileges on the system. This is a kernel-side mitigation which increases the stack guard gap size from one page to 1 MiB to make successful exploitation of this issue more difficult.

3. Description:

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

Security Fix(es):

* A flaw was found in the way memory was being allocated on the stack for
user space binaries. If heap (or different memory region) and stack memory
regions were adjacent to each other, an attacker could use this flaw to
jump over the stack guard gap, cause controlled memory corruption on
process stack or the adjacent memory region, and thus increase their
privileges on the system. This is a kernel-side mitigation which increases
the stack guard gap size from one page to 1 MiB to make successful
exploitation of this issue more difficult. (CVE-2017-1000364, Important)

Red Hat would like to thank Qualys Research Labs 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/):

1461333 - CVE-2017-1000364 kernel: heap/stack gap jumping via unbounded stack allocations
