Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: redhat-virtualization-host security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2018:2403-01
Product: Red Hat Virtualization
Advisory URL: https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2018:2403
Issue date: 2018-08-15
CVE Names: CVE-2018-3620 CVE-2018-3646 CVE-2018-5390
====================================================================
1. Summary:

An update for redhat-release-virtualization-host and
redhat-virtualization-host is now available for Red Hat Virtualization 4
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

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:

RHEL 7-based RHEV-H for RHEV 4 (build requirements) - noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Virtualization 4 Hypervisor for RHEL 7 - noarch

3. Description:

The redhat-virtualization-host packages provide the Red Hat Virtualization
Host. These packages include redhat-release-virtualization-host,
ovirt-node, and rhev-hypervisor. Red Hat Virtualization Hosts (RHVH) are
installed using a special build of Red Hat Enterprise Linux with only the
packages required to host virtual machines. RHVH features a Cockpit user
interface for monitoring the host's resources and performing administrative
tasks.

Security Fix(es):

* Modern operating systems implement virtualization of physical memory to
efficiently use available system resources and provide inter-domain
protection through access control and isolation. The L1TF issue was found
in the way the x86 microprocessor designs have implemented speculative
execution of instructions (a commonly used performance optimisation) in
combination with handling of page-faults caused by terminated virtual to
physical address resolving process. As a result, an unprivileged attacker
could use this flaw to read privileged memory of the kernel or other
processes and/or cross guest/host boundaries to read host memory by
conducting targeted cache side-channel attacks. (CVE-2018-3620,
CVE-2018-3646)

* A flaw named SegmentSmack was found in the way the Linux kernel handled
specially crafted TCP packets. A remote attacker could use this flaw to
trigger time and calculation expensive calls to tcp_collapse_ofo_queue()
and tcp_prune_ofo_queue() functions by sending specially modified packets
within ongoing TCP sessions which could lead to a CPU saturation and hence
a denial of service on the system. Maintaining the denial of service
condition requires continuous two-way TCP sessions to a reachable open
port, thus the attacks cannot be performed using spoofed IP addresses.
(CVE-2018-5390)

Red Hat would like to thank Intel OSSIRT (Intel.com) for reporting
CVE-2018-3620 and CVE-2018-3646 and Juha-Matti Tilli (Aalto University,
Department of Communications and Networking and Nokia Bell Labs) for
reporting CVE-2018-5390.
