ID CVE-2010-1188
Summary Use-after-free vulnerability in net/ipv4/tcp_input.c in the Linux kernel 2.6 before 2.6.20, when IPV6_RECVPKTINFO is set on a listening socket, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (kernel panic) via a SYN packet while the socket is in a listening (TCP_LISTEN) state, which is not properly handled and causes the skb structure to be freed.

  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2010-0178.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix three security issues, address several hundred bugs, and add numerous enhancements are now available as part of the ongoing support and maintenance of Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 5. This is the fifth regular update. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. This update fixes the following security issues : * a race condition was found in the mac80211 implementation, a framework used for writing drivers for wireless devices. An attacker could trigger this flaw by sending a Delete Block ACK (DELBA) packet to a target system, resulting in a remote denial of service. Note: This issue only affected users on 802.11n networks, and that also use the iwlagn driver with Intel wireless hardware. (CVE-2009-4027, Important) * a flaw was found in the gfs2_lock() implementation. The GFS2 locking code could skip the lock operation for files that have the S_ISGID bit (set-group-ID on execution) in their mode set. A local, unprivileged user on a system that has a GFS2 file system mounted could use this flaw to cause a kernel panic. (CVE-2010-0727, Moderate) * a divide-by-zero flaw was found in the ext4 file system code. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service by mounting a specially crafted ext4 file system. (CVE-2009-4307, Low) These updated packages also include several hundred bug fixes for and enhancements to the Linux kernel. Space precludes documenting each of these changes in this advisory and users are directed to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5 Release Notes for information on the most significant of these changes : http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5.5/html/ Release_Notes/ Also, for details concerning every bug fixed in and every enhancement added to the kernel for this release, refer to the kernel chapter in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5 Technical Notes : http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5.5/html/ Technical_Notes/kernel.html All Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 users are advised to install these updated packages, which address these vulnerabilities as well as fixing the bugs and adding the enhancements noted in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5 Release Notes and Technical Notes. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    NASL id SUSE9_12636.NASL
    description This update fixes various security issues and some bugs in the SUSE Linux Enterprise 9 kernel. The following security issues were fixed : - A crafted NFS write request might have caused a buffer overwrite, potentially causing a kernel crash. (CVE-2010-2521) - The x86_64 copy_to_user implementation might have leaked kernel memory depending on specific user buffer setups. (CVE-2008-0598) - drivers/net/r8169.c in the r8169 driver in the Linux kernel did not properly check the size of an Ethernet frame that exceeds the MTU, which allows remote attackers to (1) cause a denial of service (temporary network outage) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing A characters and certain packets containing E characters; or (2) cause a denial of service (system crash) via a packet with a crafted size, in conjunction with certain packets containing '\0' characters, related to the value of the status register and erroneous behavior associated with the RxMaxSize register. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2009-1389. (CVE-2009-4537) - Use-after-free vulnerability in net/ipv4/tcp_input.c in the Linux kernel 2.6 when IPV6_RECVPKTINFO is set on a listening socket, allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of service (kernel panic) via a SYN packet while the socket is in a listening (TCP_LISTEN) state, which is not properly handled causes the skb structure to be freed. (CVE-2010-1188) - The (1) real_lookup and (2) __lookup_hash functions in fs/namei.c in the vfs implementation in the Linux kernel did not prevent creation of a child dentry for a deleted (aka S_DEAD) directory, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service ('overflow' of the UBIFS orphan area) via a series of attempted file creations within deleted directories. (CVE-2008-3275) - The nfs_lock function in fs/nfs/file.c in the Linux kernel did not properly remove POSIX locks on files that are setgid without group-execute permission, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (BUG and system crash) by locking a file on an NFS filesystem and then changing this files permissions, a related issue to CVE-2010-0727. (CVE-2007-6733) - The do_coredump function in fs/exec.c in Linux kernel did not change the UID of a core dump file if it exists before a root process creates a core dump in the same location, which might have allowed local users to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2007-6206) - fs/namei.c in the Linux kernel did not always follow NFS automount 'symlinks,' which allowed attackers to have an unknown impact, related to LOOKUP_FOLLOW. (CVE-2010-1088) - Stack-based buffer overflow in the hfs subsystem in the Linux kernel allowed remote attackers to have an unspecified impact via a crafted Hierarchical File System (HFS) filesystem, related to the hfs_readdir function in fs/hfs/dir.c. (CVE-2009-4020) - The processcompl_compat function in drivers/usb/core/devio.c in Linux kernel did not clear the transfer buffer before returning to userspace when a USB command fails, which might have made it easier for physically proximate attackers to obtain sensitive information (kernel memory). (CVE-2010-1083)

    description The remote VMware ESX / ESXi host is missing a security-related patch. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities : - A flaw exists in the Linux Kernel in the do_anonymous_page() function due to improper separation of the stack and the heap. An attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-2240) - A packet filter bypass exists in the Linux Kernel e1000 driver due to processing trailing payload data as a complete frame. A remote attacker can exploit this to bypass packet filters via a large packet with a crafted payload. (CVE-2009-4536) - A use-after-free error exists in the Linux Kernel when IPV6_RECVPKTINFO is set on a listening socket. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a SYN packet while the socket is in a listening (TCP_LISTEN) state, to cause a kernel panic, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2010-1188) - An array index error exists in the Linux Kernel in the gdth_read_event() function. A local attacker can exploit this, via a negative event index in an IOCTL request, to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2009-3080) - A race condition exists in the VMware Host Guest File System (HGFS) that allows guest operating system users to gain privileges by mounting a filesystem on top of an arbitrary directory. (CVE-2011-1787) - A flaw exists in the VMware Host Guest File System (HGFS) that allows a Solaris or FreeBSD guest operating system user to modify arbitrary guest operating system files. (CVE-2011-2145) - A flaw exists in the VMware Host Guest File System (HGFS) that allows guest operating system users to disclose host operating system files and directories. (CVE-2011-2146) - A flaw exists in the bundled Tom Sawyer GET Extension Factory that allows a remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code via a crafted HTML document.

  • NASL family VMware ESX Local Security Checks
    NASL id VMWARE_VMSA-2011-0009.NASL
    description a. VMware vmkernel third-party e1000(e) Driver Packet Filter Bypass There is an issue in the e1000(e) Linux driver for Intel PRO/1000 adapters that allows a remote attacker to bypass packet filters. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-4536 to this issue. b. ESX third-party update for Service Console kernel This update for the console OS kernel package resolves four security issues. 1) IPv4 Remote Denial of Service An remote attacker can achieve a denial of service via an issue in the kernel IPv4 code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-1188 to this issue. 2) SCSI Driver Denial of Service / Possible Privilege Escalation A local attacker can achieve a denial of service and possibly a privilege escalation via a vulnerability in the Linux SCSI drivers. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-3080 to this issue. 3) Kernel Memory Management Arbitrary Code Execution A context-dependent attacker can execute arbitrary code via a vulnerability in a kernel memory handling function. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2010-2240 to this issue. 4) e1000 Driver Packet Filter Bypass There is an issue in the Service Console e1000 Linux driver for Intel PRO/1000 adapters that allows a remote attacker to bypass packet filters. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-4536 to this issue. c. Multiple vulnerabilities in mount.vmhgfs This patch provides a fix for the following three security issues in the VMware Host Guest File System (HGFS). None of these issues affect Windows based Guest Operating Systems. 1) Mount.vmhgfs Information Disclosure Information disclosure via a vulnerability that allows an attacker with access to the Guest to determine if a path exists in the Host filesystem and whether it is a file or directory regardless of permissions. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2011-2146 to this issue. 2) Mount.vmhgfs Race Condition Privilege escalation via a race condition that allows an attacker with access to the guest to mount on arbitrary directories in the Guest filesystem and achieve privilege escalation if they can control the contents of the mounted directory. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2011-1787 to this issue. 3) Mount.vmhgfs Privilege Escalation Privilege escalation via a procedural error that allows an attacker with access to the guest operating system to gain write access to an arbitrary file in the Guest filesystem. This issue only affects Solaris and FreeBSD Guest Operating Systems. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2011-2145 to this issue. VMware would like to thank Dan Rosenberg for reporting these issues. d. VI Client ActiveX vulnerabilities VI Client COM objects can be instantiated in Internet Explorer which may cause memory corruption. An attacker who succeeded in making the VI Client user visit a malicious Web site could execute code on the user's system within the security context of that user. VMware would like to thank Elazar Broad and iDefense for reporting this issue to us. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2011-2217 to this issue. Affected versions. The vSphere Client which comes with vSphere 4.0 and vSphere 4.1 is not affected. This is any build of vSphere Client Version 4.0.0 and vSphere Client Version 4.1.0. VI Clients bundled with VMware Infrastructure 3 that are not affected are : - VI Client 2.0.2 Build 230598 and higher - VI Client 2.5 Build 204931 and higher The issue can be remediated by replacing an affected VI Client with the VI Client bundled with VirtualCenter 2.5 Update 6 or VirtualCenter 2.5 Update 6a.

    description Security fixes : - Kernel update 2.6.9-89.EL introduced a flaw in the ptrace implementation on Itanium systems. ptrace_check_attach() was not called during certain ptrace() requests. Under certain circumstances, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to call ptrace() on a process they do not own, giving them control over that process. (CVE-2010-0729, Important) - a flaw was found in the kernel's Unidirectional Lightweight Encapsulation (ULE) implementation. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted ISO MPEG-2 Transport Stream (TS) frame to a target system, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2010-1086, Important) - a use-after-free flaw was found in tcp_rcv_state_process() in the kernel's TCP/IP protocol suite implementation. If a system using IPv6 had the IPV6_RECVPKTINFO option set on a listening socket, a remote attacker could send an IPv6 packet to that system, causing a kernel panic. (CVE-2010-1188, Important) - a divide-by-zero flaw was found in azx_position_ok() in the Intel High Definition Audio driver, snd-hda-intel. A local, unprivileged user could trigger this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2010-1085, Moderate) - an information leak flaw was found in the kernel's USB implementation. Certain USB errors could result in an uninitialized kernel buffer being sent to user-space. An attacker with physical access to a target system could use this flaw to cause an information leak. (CVE-2010-1083, Low) Bug fixes : - a regression prevented the Broadcom BCM5761 network device from working when in the first (top) PCI-E slot of Hewlett-Packard (HP) Z600 systems. Note: The card worked in the 2nd or 3rd PCI-E slot. (BZ#567205) - the Xen hypervisor supports 168 GB of RAM for 32-bit guests. The physical address range was set incorrectly, however, causing 32-bit, para-virtualized Scientific Linux 4.8 guests to crash when launched on AMD64 or Intel 64 hosts that have more than 64 GB of RAM. (BZ#574392) - Kernel update 2.6.9-89.EL introduced a regression, causing diskdump to fail on systems with certain adapters using the qla2xxx driver. (BZ#577234) - a race condition caused TX to stop in a guest using the virtio_net driver. (BZ#580089) - on some systems, using the 'arp_validate=3' bonding option caused both links to show as 'down' even though the arp_target was responding to ARP requests sent by the bonding driver. (BZ#580842) - in some circumstances, when a Scientific Linux client connected to a re-booted Windows-based NFS server, server-side filehandle-to-inode mapping changes caused a kernel panic. 'bad_inode_ops' handling was changed to prevent this. Note: filehandle-to-inode mapping changes may still cause errors, but not panics. (BZ#582908) - when installing a Scientific Linux 4 guest via PXE, hard-coded fixed-size scatterlists could conflict with host requests, causing the guest's kernel to panic. With this update, dynamically allocated scatterlists are used, resolving this issue. (BZ#582911) Enhancements : - kernel support for connlimit. Note: iptables errata update RHBA-2010:0395 is also required for connlimit to work correctly. (BZ#563223) - support for the Intel architectural performance monitoring subsystem (arch_perfmon). On supported CPUs, arch_perfmon offers means to mark performance events and options for configuring and counting these events. (BZ#582913) - kernel support for OProfile sampling of Intel microarchitecture (Nehalem) CPUs. This update alone does not address OProfile support for such CPUs. A future oprofile package update will allow OProfile to work on Intel Nehalem CPUs. (BZ#582241) The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

(CVE-2010-1187) Masayuki Nakagawa discovered that IPv6 did not correctly handle certain settings when listening. If a socket were listening with the IPV6_RECVPKTINFO flag, a remote attacker could send specially crafted traffic that would cause the system to crash, leading to a denial of service. (Only Ubuntu 6.06 LTS was affected.) (CVE-2010-1188) Oleg Nesterov discovered that the Out-Of-Memory handler did not correctly handle certain arrangements of processes. A local attacker could exploit this to crash the system, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-1488). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description Updated kernel packages that fix one security issue and add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.7 Extended Update Support. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. This update fixes the following security issue : * a use-after-free flaw was found in the tcp_rcv_state_process() function in the Linux kernel TCP/IP protocol suite implementation. If a system using IPv6 had the IPV6_RECVPKTINFO option set on a listening socket, a remote attacker could send an IPv6 packet to that system, causing a kernel panic (denial of service). (CVE-2010-1188, Important) This update also adds the following enhancement : * kernel support for the iptables connlimit module. This module can be used to help mitigate some types of denial of service attacks. Note: This update alone does not address connlimit support. A future iptables package update will allow connlimit to work correctly. (BZ#563222) Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct this issue and add this enhancement. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    description Updated kernel packages that fix one security issue and two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3 Extended Update Support. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. This update fixes the following security issue : * a use-after-free flaw was found in the tcp_rcv_state_process() function in the Linux kernel TCP/IP protocol suite implementation. If a system using IPv6 had the IPV6_RECVPKTINFO option set on a listening socket, a remote attacker could send an IPv6 packet to that system, causing a kernel panic (denial of service). (CVE-2010-1188, Important) This update also fixes the following bugs : * a memory leak occurred when reading files on an NFS file system that was mounted with the 'noac' option, causing memory to slowly be consumed. Unmounting the file system did not free the memory. With this update, the memory is correctly freed, which resolves this issue. (BZ#588221) * the RHSA-2009:0225 update fixed a bug where, in some cases, on systems with the kdump service enabled, pressing Alt+SysRq+C to trigger a crash resulted in a system hang; therefore, the system did not restart and boot the dump-capture kernel as expected; no vmcore file was logged; and the following message was displayed on the console : BUG: warning at arch/[arch]/kernel/crash.c:[xxx]/nmi_shootdown_cpus() (Not tainted) The RHSA-2009:0225 update resolved this issue by not calling printk() during a crash. It was later discovered that this fix did not resolve the issue in all cases, since there was one condition where printk() was still being called: at a warning condition inside the mdelay() call. This update replaces mdelay() calls with udelay(), where such a warning condition does not exist, which fully resolves this issue, allowing Alt+SysRq+C to work as expected. (BZ#588211) Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2010:0394 : Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues, several bugs, and add three enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security fixes : * RHSA-2009:1024 introduced a flaw in the ptrace implementation on Itanium systems. ptrace_check_attach() was not called during certain ptrace() requests. Under certain circumstances, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to call ptrace() on a process they do not own, giving them control over that process. (CVE-2010-0729, Important) * a flaw was found in the kernel's Unidirectional Lightweight Encapsulation (ULE) implementation. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted ISO MPEG-2 Transport Stream (TS) frame to a target system, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2010-1086, Important) * a use-after-free flaw was found in tcp_rcv_state_process() in the kernel's TCP/IP protocol suite implementation. If a system using IPv6 had the IPV6_RECVPKTINFO option set on a listening socket, a remote attacker could send an IPv6 packet to that system, causing a kernel panic. (CVE-2010-1188, Important) * a divide-by-zero flaw was found in azx_position_ok() in the Intel High Definition Audio driver, snd-hda-intel. A local, unprivileged user could trigger this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2010-1085, Moderate) * an information leak flaw was found in the kernel's USB implementation. Certain USB errors could result in an uninitialized kernel buffer being sent to user-space. An attacker with physical access to a target system could use this flaw to cause an information leak. (CVE-2010-1083, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Ang Way Chuang for reporting CVE-2010-1086. Bug fixes : * a regression prevented the Broadcom BCM5761 network device from working when in the first (top) PCI-E slot of Hewlett-Packard (HP) Z600 systems. Note: The card worked in the 2nd or 3rd PCI-E slot. (BZ#567205) * the Xen hypervisor supports 168 GB of RAM for 32-bit guests. The physical address range was set incorrectly, however, causing 32-bit, para-virtualized Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.8 guests to crash when launched on AMD64 or Intel 64 hosts that have more than 64 GB of RAM. (BZ#574392) * RHSA-2009:1024 introduced a regression, causing diskdump to fail on systems with certain adapters using the qla2xxx driver. (BZ#577234) * a race condition caused TX to stop in a guest using the virtio_net driver. (BZ#580089) * on some systems, using the 'arp_validate=3' bonding option caused both links to show as 'down' even though the arp_target was responding to ARP requests sent by the bonding driver. (BZ#580842) * in some circumstances, when a Red Hat Enterprise Linux client connected to a re-booted Windows-based NFS server, server-side filehandle-to-inode mapping changes caused a kernel panic. 'bad_inode_ops' handling was changed to prevent this. Note: filehandle-to-inode mapping changes may still cause errors, but not panics. (BZ#582908) * when installing a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 guest via PXE, hard-coded fixed-size scatterlists could conflict with host requests, causing the guest's kernel to panic. With this update, dynamically allocated scatterlists are used, resolving this issue. (BZ#582911) Enhancements : * kernel support for connlimit. Note: iptables errata update RHBA-2010:0395 is also required for connlimit to work correctly. (BZ#563223) * support for the Intel architectural performance monitoring subsystem (arch_perfmon). On supported CPUs, arch_perfmon offers means to mark performance events and options for configuring and counting these events. (BZ#582913) * kernel support for OProfile sampling of Intel microarchitecture (Nehalem) CPUs. This update alone does not address OProfile support for such CPUs. A future oprofile package update will allow OProfile to work on Intel Nehalem CPUs. (BZ#582241) Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues and add these enhancements.

    title CentOS 4 : kernel (CESA-2010:0394)
  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2010-0380.NASL
    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 Extended Update Support. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security fixes : * a race condition was found in the mac80211 implementation, a framework used for writing drivers for wireless devices. An attacker could trigger this flaw by sending a Delete Block ACK (DELBA) packet to a target system, resulting in a remote denial of service. Note: This issue only affected users on 802.11n networks, and that also use the iwlagn driver with Intel wireless hardware. (CVE-2009-4027, Important) * a use-after-free flaw was found in the tcp_rcv_state_process() function in the Linux kernel TCP/IP protocol suite implementation. If a system using IPv6 had the IPV6_RECVPKTINFO option set on a listening socket, a remote attacker could send an IPv6 packet to that system, causing a kernel panic (denial of service). (CVE-2010-1188, Important) * a flaw was found in the gfs2_lock() implementation. The GFS2 locking code could skip the lock operation for files that have the S_ISGID bit (set-group-ID on execution) in their mode set. A local, unprivileged user on a system that has a GFS2 file system mounted could use this flaw to cause a kernel panic (denial of service). (CVE-2010-0727, Moderate) * a divide-by-zero flaw was found in the ext4 file system code. A local attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service by mounting a specially crafted ext4 file system. (CVE-2009-4307, Low) Bug fixes : * if a program that calls posix_fadvise() were compiled on x86, and then run on a 64-bit system, that program could experience various problems, including performance issues and the call to posix_fadvise() failing, causing the program to not run as expected or even abort. With this update, when such programs attempt to call posix_fadvise() on 64-bit systems, sys32_fadvise64() is called instead, which resolves this issue. This update also fixes other 32-bit system calls that were mistakenly called on 64-bit systems (including systems running the kernel-xen kernel). (BZ#569597) * on some systems able to set a P-State limit via the BIOS, it was not possible to set the limit to a higher frequency if the system was rebooted while a low limit was set: '/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu[x]/cpufreq/scaling_max_freq' would retain the low limit in these situations. With this update, limits are correctly set, even after being changed after a system reboot. (BZ#569727) * certain Intel ICH hardware (using the e1000e driver) has an NFS filtering capability that did not work as expected, causing memory corruption, which could lead to kernel panics, or other unexpected behavior. In a reported case, a panic occurred when running NFS connection tests. This update resolves this issue by disabling the filtering capability. (BZ#569797) * if 'open(/proc/[PID]/[xxxx])' was called at the same time the process was exiting, the call would fail with an EINVAL error (an incorrect error for this situation). With this update, the correct error, ENOENT, is returned in this situation. (BZ#571362) * multiqueue is used for transmitting data, but a single queue transmit ON/OFF scheme was used. This led to a race condition on systems with the bnx2x driver in situations where one queue became full, but not stopped, and the other queue enabled transmission. With this update, only a single queue is used. (BZ#576951) * the '/proc/sys/vm/mmap_min_addr' tunable helps prevent unprivileged users from creating new memory mappings below the minimum address. The sysctl value for mmap_min_addr could be changed by a process or user that has an effective user ID (euid) of 0, even if the process or user does not have the CAP_SYS_RAWIO capability. This update adds a capability check for the CAP_SYS_RAWIO capability before allowing the mmap_min_addr value to be changed. (BZ#577206) Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

statement Red Hat is aware of this issue and is tracking it via the following bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/CVE-2010-1188 This issue did not affect the version of the Linux kernel as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise MRG, as it was fixed since version v2.6.20-rc6. It was addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 in the kernel package via https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0178.html. A future update in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4 may address this flaw.
