Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: kernel security, bug fix, and enhancement update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2019:1483-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2019:1483
Issue date: 2019-06-17
CVE Names: CVE-2018-7566 CVE-2018-1000004 CVE-2019-11477

====================================================================
1. Summary:

An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4
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. 7.4) - noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ComputeNode Optional EUS (v. 7.4) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server EUS (v. 7.4) - noarch, ppc64, ppc64le, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional EUS (v. 7.4) - ppc64, ppc64le, 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: race condition in snd_seq_write() may lead to UAF or OOB-access
(CVE-2018-7566)

* kernel: Race condition in sound system can lead to denial of service
(CVE-2018-1000004)

* 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):

* Mistmach between 'tty->termios->c_lflag' and 'ldata->icanon' for 'ICANON'
(BZ#1708061)

* RHEL7: rwsem reader/writer mutual exclusion guarantee may not work
(BZ#1709702)

* hardened usercopy is causing crash (BZ#1712311)

* [RHEL7] md_clear flag missing from /proc/cpuinfo on late microcode update
(BZ#1712991)

* [RHEL7] MDS mitigations are not enabled after double microcode update
(BZ#1712996)

* WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 0 at kernel/jump_label.c:90
__static_key_slow_dec+0xa6/0xb0 (BZ#1713002)

* [debug kernel] [x86_64]INFO: possible circular locking dependency
detected (BZ#1715326)

* RHEL-7.7: tty: termios_rwsem possible deadlock (BZ#1715329)

Enhancement(s):

* [MCHP 7.7 FEAT] Update smartpqi driver to latest upstream (BZ#1709467)

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:
