=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.7
Extended Update Support.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Moderate. 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. 7.7) - noarch, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ComputeNode Optional EUS (v. 7.7) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server EUS (v. 7.7) - noarch, ppc64, ppc64le, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional EUS (v. 7.7) - ppc64, ppc64le, x86_64

3. Description:

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

Security Fix(es):

* kernel: out of bounds write in function i2c_smbus_xfer_emulated in
drivers/i2c/i2c-core-smbus.c (CVE-2017-18551)

* kernel: out of bounds write in i2c driver leads to local escalation of
privilege (CVE-2019-9454)

* kernel: Denial Of Service in the __ipmi_bmc_register() function in
drivers/char/ipmi/ipmi_msghandler.c (CVE-2019-19046)

* kernel: mounting a crafted ext4 filesystem image, performing some
operations, and unmounting can lead to a use-after-free in ext4_put_super
in fs/ext4/super.c (CVE-2019-19447)

* kernel: sg_write function lacks an sg_remove_request call in a certain
failure case (CVE-2020-12770)

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):

* [RHEL7] deadlock between page fault handler and __get_free_pages()
(BZ#1889766)

* RHEL7.6: no-carrier configured interfaces causes soft lockups by
mount.nfs and hang booting/shutdown process (BZ#1889772)

* RHEL7.7 zstream - ESS - kernel panic triggered by freelist pointer
corruption (BZ#1893807)

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.
