Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: kernel security and bug fix update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2019:1479-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2019:1479
Issue date: 2019-06-17
CVE Names: CVE-2019-9213 CVE-2019-11477 CVE-2019-11478
CVE-2019-11479
====================================================================
1. Summary:

An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.

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 CodeReady Linux Builder (v. 8) - aarch64, ppc64le, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux BaseOS (v. 8) - aarch64, noarch, ppc64le, s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

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

Security Fix(es):

* An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's
networking subsystem processed TCP Selective Acknowledgment (SACK)
segments. While processing SACK segments, the Linux kernel's socket buffer
(SKB) data structure becomes fragmented. Each fragment is about TCP maximum
segment size (MSS) bytes. To efficiently process SACK blocks, the Linux
kernel merges multiple fragmented SKBs into one, potentially overflowing
the variable holding the number of segments. A remote attacker could use
this flaw to crash the Linux kernel by sending a crafted sequence of SACK
segments on a TCP connection with small value of TCP MSS, resulting in a
denial of service (DoS). (CVE-2019-11477)

* kernel: lack of check for mmap minimum address in expand_downwards in
mm/mmap.c leads to NULL pointer dereferences exploit on non-SMAP platforms
(CVE-2019-9213)

* Kernel: tcp: excessive resource consumption while processing SACK blocks
allows remote denial of service (CVE-2019-11478)

* Kernel: tcp: excessive resource consumption for TCP connections with low
MSS allows remote denial of service (CVE-2019-11479)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS
score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE
page(s) listed in the References section.

Bug Fix(es):

* [HPE 8.0 Bug] nvme drive power button does not turn off drive
(BZ#1700288)

* RHEL8.0 - hw csum failure seen in dmesg and console (using
mlx5/mlx4/Mellanox) (BZ#1700289)

* RHEL8.0 - ISST-LTE:pVM:fleetwood:LPM:raylp85:After lpm seeing the
console logs on the the lpar at target side (BZ#1708102)

* RHEL8.0 - Backport support for software count cache flush Spectre v2
mitigation (BZ#1708112)

* [Regression] RHEL8.0 - System crashed with one stress-ng-mremap stressor
on Boston (kvm host) (BZ#1708617)

* [intel ice Rhel 8 RC1] ethtool -A ethx causes interfaces to go down
(BZ#1709433)
