Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: kernel security and bug fix update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2018:2161-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2018:2161
Issue date: 2018-07-10
CVE Names: CVE-2018-3639
====================================================================
1. Summary:

An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3
Extended Update Support.

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 ComputeNode EUS (v. 7.3) - noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ComputeNode Optional EUS (v. 7.3) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server EUS (v. 7.3) - noarch, ppc64, ppc64le, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional EUS (v. 7.3) - ppc64, ppc64le, 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, x86 AMD)

Red Hat would like to thank Ken Johnson (Microsoft Security Response
Center) and Jann Horn (Google Project Zero) for reporting this issue.

Bug Fix(es):

* When a Nonvolatile Memory Express (NVMe) namespace was created, changed,
or deleted, an occasional deadlock occurred. With this update, namespace
scanning and removal does not hold a mutual exclusion (mutex) program
object. As a result, a deadlock no longer occurs in the described scenario.
(BZ#1566886)

* Previously, a live migration of a virtual machine from one host with
updated firmware to another host without updated firmware resulted in
incorrect kernel settings for Meltdown mitigations, which could leave the
kernel vulnerable to Meltdown. With this fix, the firmware on the new
physical host is re-scanned for updates after a live migration. As a
result, the kernel uses the correct mitigation in the described scenario.
(BZ#1570507)

* Previously, microcode updates on 32 and 64-bit AMD and Intel
architectures were not synchronized. As a consequence, it was not possible
to apply the microcode updates. This fix adds the synchronization to the
microcode updates so that processors of the stated architectures receive
updates at the same time. As a result, microcode updates are now
synchronized. (BZ#1578044)

* When switching from the indirect branch speculation (IBRS) feature to the
retpolines feature, the IBRS state of some CPUs was sometimes not handled
correctly. Consequently, some CPUs were left with the IBRS Model-Specific
Register (MSR) bit set to 1, which could lead to performance issues. With
this update, the underlying source code has been fixed to clear the IBRS
MSR bits correctly, thus fixing the bug. (BZ#1586146)

Users of kernel are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
these bugs.

The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.
