Red Hat Security Advisory 2013-0744-01

Red Hat Security Advisory 2013-0744-01 - Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found in the way the Intel i915 driver in the Linux kernel handled the allocation of the buffer used for relocation copies. A local user with console access could use this flaw to cause a denial of service or escalate their privileges. A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way UTF-8 characters were converted to UTF-16 in the utf8s_to_utf16s() function of the Linux kernel's FAT file system implementation. A local user able to mount a FAT file system with the "utf8=1" option could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, to escalate their privileges.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2013-0747-01 - The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. A flaw was found in the Xen netback driver implementation in the Linux kernel. A privileged guest user with access to a para-virtualized network device could use this flaw to cause a long loop in netback, leading to a denial of service that could potentially affect the entire system.
