Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: kernel security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2018:1637-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2018:1637
Issue date: 2018-05-29
CVE Names: CVE-2018-3639
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2
Advanced Update Support, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 Telco Extended Update
Support, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 Update Services for SAP
Solutions.

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 Enterprise Linux Server AUS (v. 7.2) - noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server E4S (v. 7.2) - noarch, ppc64le, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional AUS (v. 7.2) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional E4S (v. 7.2) - ppc64le, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional TUS (v. 7.2) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server TUS (v. 7.2) - noarch, x86_64

3. Description:

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

Security Fix(es):

* An industry-wide issue was found in the way many modern microprocessor
designs have implemented speculative execution of Load & Store instructions
(a commonly used performance optimization). It relies on the presence of a
precisely-defined instruction sequence in the privileged code as well as
the fact that memory read from address to which a recent memory write has
occurred may see an older value and subsequently cause an update into the
microprocessor's data cache even for speculatively executed instructions
that never actually commit (retire). As a result, an unprivileged attacker
could use this flaw to read privileged memory by conducting targeted cache
side-channel attacks. (CVE-2018-3639)

Note: This issue is present in hardware and cannot be fully fixed via
software update. The updated kernel packages provide software side of the
mitigation for this hardware issue. To be fully functional, up-to-date CPU
microcode applied on the system is required. Please refer to References
section for further information about this issue, CPU microcode
requirements and the potential performance impact.

In this update mitigations for x86-64 architecture are provided.

Red Hat would like to thank Ken Johnson (Microsoft Security Response
Center) and Jann Horn (Google Project Zero) 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/):

1566890 - CVE-2018-3639 hw: cpu: speculative store bypass
