    description Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in the Linux kernel : The try_to_unmap_cluster function in mm/rmap.c in the Linux kernel before 3.14.3 does not properly consider which pages must be locked, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (system crash) by triggering a memory-usage pattern that requires removal of page-table mappings (CVE-2014-3122). Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in the magicmouse_raw_event function in drivers/hid/hid-magicmouse.c in the Magic Mouse HID driver in the Linux kernel through 3.16.3 allow physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted device that provides a large amount of (1) EHCI or (2) XHCI data associated with an event (CVE-2014-3181). Array index error in the logi_dj_raw_event function in drivers/hid/hid-logitech-dj.c in the Linux kernel before 3.16.2 allows physically proximate attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (invalid kfree) via a crafted device that provides a malformed REPORT_TYPE_NOTIF_DEVICE_UNPAIRED value (CVE-2014-3182). The report_fixup functions in the HID subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.16.2 might allow physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds write) via a crafted device that provides a small report descriptor, related to (1) drivers/hid/hid-cherry.c, (2) drivers/hid/hid-kye.c, (3) drivers/hid/hid-lg.c, (4) drivers/hid/hid-monterey.c, (5) drivers/hid/hid-petalynx.c, and (6) drivers/hid/hid-sunplus.c (CVE-2014-3184). Multiple buffer overflows in the command_port_read_callback function in drivers/usb/serial/whiteheat.c in the Whiteheat USB Serial Driver in the Linux kernel before 3.16.2 allow physically proximate attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash) via a crafted device that provides a large amount of (1) EHCI or (2) XHCI data associated with a bulk response (CVE-2014-3185). Buffer overflow in the picolcd_raw_event function in devices/hid/hid-picolcd_core.c in the PicoLCD HID device driver in the Linux kernel through 3.16.3, as used in Android on Nexus 7 devices, allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted device that sends a large report (CVE-2014-3186). arch/s390/kernel/ptrace.c in the Linux kernel before 3.15.8 on the s390 platform does not properly restrict address-space control operations in PTRACE_POKEUSR_AREA requests, which allows local users to obtain read and write access to kernel memory locations, and consequently gain privileges, via a crafted application that makes a ptrace system call (CVE-2014-3534). The kvm_iommu_map_pages function in virt/kvm/iommu.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 miscalculates the number of pages during the handling of a mapping failure, which allows guest OS users to (1) cause a denial of service (host OS memory corruption) or possibly have unspecified other impact by triggering a large gfn value or (2) cause a denial of service (host OS memory consumption) by triggering a small gfn value that leads to permanently pinned pages (CVE-2014-3601). The sctp_assoc_update function in net/sctp/associola.c in the Linux kernel through 3.15.8, when SCTP authentication is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) by starting to establish an association between two endpoints immediately after an exchange of INIT and INIT ACK chunks to establish an earlier association between these endpoints in the opposite direction (CVE-2014-5077). The do_remount function in fs/namespace.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 does not maintain the MNT_LOCK_READONLY bit across a remount of a bind mount, which allows local users to bypass an intended read-only restriction and defeat certain sandbox protection mechanisms via a mount -o remount command within a user namespace (CVE-2014-5206). Stack consumption vulnerability in the parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 allows local users to cause a denial of service (uncontrolled recursion, and system crash or reboot) via a crafted iso9660 image with a CL entry referring to a directory entry that has a CL entry (CVE-2014-5471). The parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 allows local users to cause a denial of service (unkillable mount process) via a crafted iso9660 image with a self-referential CL entry (CVE-2014-5472). The __udf_read_inode function in fs/udf/inode.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.3 does not restrict the amount of ICB indirection, which allows physically proximate attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop or stack consumption) via a UDF filesystem with a crafted inode (CVE-2014-6410). The do_umount function in fs/namespace.c in the Linux kernel through 3.17 does not require the CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability for do_remount_sb calls that change the root filesystem to read-only, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (loss of writability) by making certain unshare system calls, clearing the / MNT_LOCKED flag, and making an MNT_FORCE umount system call (CVE-2014-7975). The updated packages provides a solution for these security issues.

  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_11_KERNEL-140924.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Service Pack 3 kernel has been updated to fix various bugs and security issues. The following security bugs have been fixed : - The media_device_enum_entities function in drivers/media/media-device.c in the Linux kernel before 3.14.6 does not initialize a certain data structure, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by leveraging /dev/media0 read access for a MEDIA_IOC_ENUM_ENTITIES ioctl call. (bnc#882804). (CVE-2014-1739) - mm/shmem.c in the Linux kernel through 3.15.1 does not properly implement the interaction between range notification and hole punching, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (i_mutex hold) by using the mmap system call to access a hole, as demonstrated by interfering with intended shmem activity by blocking completion of (1) an MADV_REMOVE madvise call or (2) an FALLOC_FL_PUNCH_HOLE fallocate call. (bnc#883518). (CVE-2014-4171) - arch/x86/kernel/entry_32.S in the Linux kernel through 3.15.1 on 32-bit x86 platforms, when syscall auditing is enabled and the sep CPU feature flag is set, allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS and system crash) via an invalid syscall number, as demonstrated by number 1000. (bnc#883724). (CVE-2014-4508) - The sctp_association_free function in net/sctp/associola.c in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 does not properly manage a certain backlog value, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (socket outage) via a crafted SCTP packet. (bnc#885422). (CVE-2014-4667) - The PPPoL2TP feature in net/l2tp/l2tp_ppp.c in the Linux kernel through 3.15.6 allows local users to gain privileges by leveraging data-structure differences between an l2tp socket and an inet socket. (bnc#887082). (CVE-2014-4943) - The sctp_assoc_update function in net/sctp/associola.c in the Linux kernel through 3.15.8, when SCTP authentication is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) by starting to establish an association between two endpoints immediately after an exchange of INIT and INIT ACK chunks to establish an earlier association between these endpoints in the opposite direction. (bnc#889173). (CVE-2014-5077) - Stack consumption vulnerability in the parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 allows local users to cause a denial of service (uncontrolled recursion, and system crash or reboot) via a crafted iso9660 image with a CL entry referring to a directory entry that has a CL entry. (bnc#892490). (CVE-2014-5471) - The parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 allows local users to cause a denial of service (unkillable mount process) via a crafted iso9660 image with a self-referential CL entry. (bnc#892490). (CVE-2014-5472) - Race condition in the mac80211 subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.13.7 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via network traffic that improperly interacts with the WLAN_STA_PS_STA state (aka power-save mode), related to sta_info.c and tx.c. (bnc#871797). (CVE-2014-2706) - The rd_build_device_space function in drivers/target/target_core_rd.c in the Linux kernel before 3.14 does not properly initialize a certain data structure, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from ramdisk_mcp memory by leveraging access to a SCSI initiator. (bnc#882639). (CVE-2014-4027) - The futex_requeue function in kernel/futex.c in the Linux kernel through 3.14.5 does not ensure that calls have two different futex addresses, which allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted FUTEX_REQUEUE command that facilitates unsafe waiter modification. (bnc#880892). (CVE-2014-3153) - Avoid infinite loop when processing indirect ICBs (bnc#896689) The following non-security bugs have been fixed:. (CVE-2014-6410) - ACPI / PAD: call schedule() when need_resched() is true. (bnc#866911) - ACPI: Fix bug when ACPI reset register is implemented in system memory.

(CVE-2014-6410, Low) * It was found that the Linux kernel's networking implementation did not correctly handle the setting of the keepalive socket option on raw sockets. A local user able to create a raw socket could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2012-6657, Low) * It was found that the parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal() function of the Linux kernel's ISOFS implementation did not correctly check relocated directories when processing Rock Ridge child link (CL) tags. An attacker with physical access to the system could use a specially crafted ISO image to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-5471, CVE-2014-5472, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Andy Lutomirski for reporting CVE-2014-9322. The CVE-2014-3673 issue was discovered by Liu Wei of Red Hat. Bug fixes : * This update fixes a race condition issue between the sock_queue_err_skb function and sk_forward_alloc handling in the socket error queue (MSG_ERRQUEUE), which could occasionally cause the kernel, for example when using PTP, to incorrectly track allocated memory for the error queue, in which case a traceback would occur in the system log. (BZ#1155427) * The zcrypt device driver did not detect certain crypto cards and the related domains for crypto adapters on System z and s390x architectures. Consequently, it was not possible to run the system on new crypto hardware. This update enables toleration mode for such devices so that the system can make use of newer crypto hardware. (BZ#1158311) * After mounting and unmounting an XFS file system several times consecutively, the umount command occasionally became unresponsive. This was caused by the xlog_cil_force_lsn() function that was not waiting for completion as expected. With this update, xlog_cil_force_lsn() has been modified to correctly wait for completion, thus fixing this bug. (BZ#1158325) * When using the ixgbe adapter with disabled LRO and the tx-usec or rs-usec variables set to 0, transmit interrupts could not be set lower than the default of 8 buffered tx frames. Consequently, a delay of TCP transfer occurred. The restriction of a minimum of 8 buffered frames has been removed, and the TCP delay no longer occurs. (BZ#1158326) * The offb driver has been updated for the QEMU standard VGA adapter, fixing an incorrect displaying of colors issue. (BZ#1158328) * Under certain circumstances, when a discovered MTU expired, the IPv6 connection became unavailable for a short period of time. This bug has been fixed, and the connection now works as expected. (BZ#1161418) * A low throughput occurred when using the dm-thin driver to write to unprovisioned or shared chunks for a thin pool with the chunk size bigger than the max_sectors_kb variable. (BZ#1161420) * Large write workloads on thin LVs could cause the iozone and smallfile utilities to terminate unexpectedly. (BZ#1161421)

    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2014-1971.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2014:1971 : Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Red Hat Product Security 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. * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's SCTP implementation handled malformed or duplicate Address Configuration Change Chunks (ASCONF). A remote attacker could use either of these flaws to crash the system. (CVE-2014-3673, CVE-2014-3687, Important) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's SCTP implementation handled the association's output queue. A remote attacker could send specially crafted packets that would cause the system to use an excessive amount of memory, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2014-3688, Important) * Two flaws were found in the way the Apple Magic Mouse/Trackpad multi-touch driver and the Minibox PicoLCD driver handled invalid HID reports. An attacker with physical access to the system could use these flaws to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-3181, CVE-2014-3186, Moderate) * A memory corruption flaw was found in the way the USB ConnectTech WhiteHEAT serial driver processed completion commands sent via USB Request Blocks buffers. An attacker with physical access to the system could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-3185, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's keys subsystem handled the termination condition in the associative array garbage collection functionality. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-3631, Moderate) * Multiple flaws were found in the way the Linux kernel's ALSA implementation handled user controls. A local, privileged user could use either of these flaws to crash the system. (CVE-2014-4654, CVE-2014-4655, CVE-2014-4656, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's VFS subsystem handled reference counting when performing unmount operations on symbolic links. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to exhaust all available memory on the system or, potentially, trigger a use-after-free error, resulting in a system crash or privilege escalation. (CVE-2014-5045, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way the get_dumpable() function return value was interpreted in the ptrace subsystem of the Linux kernel. When 'fs.suid_dumpable' was set to 2, a local, unprivileged local user could use this flaw to bypass intended ptrace restrictions and obtain potentially sensitive information. (CVE-2013-2929, Low) * A stack overflow flaw caused by infinite recursion was found in the way the Linux kernel's UDF file system implementation processed indirect ICBs. An attacker with physical access to the system could use a specially crafted UDF image to crash the system. (CVE-2014-6410, Low) * An information leak flaw in the way the Linux kernel handled media device enumerate entities IOCTL requests could allow a local user able to access the /dev/media0 device file to leak kernel memory bytes. (CVE-2014-1739, Low) * An out-of-bounds read flaw in the Logitech Unifying receiver driver could allow an attacker with physical access to the system to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-3182, Low) * Multiple out-of-bounds write flaws were found in the way the Cherry Cymotion keyboard driver, KYE/Genius device drivers, Logitech device drivers, Monterey Genius KB29E keyboard driver, Petalynx Maxter remote control driver, and Sunplus wireless desktop driver handled invalid HID reports. An attacker with physical access to the system could use either of these flaws to write data past an allocated memory buffer. (CVE-2014-3184, Low) * An information leak flaw was found in the RAM Disks Memory Copy (rd_mcp) back end driver of the iSCSI Target subsystem could allow a privileged user to leak the contents of kernel memory to an iSCSI initiator remote client. (CVE-2014-4027, Low) * An information leak flaw in the Linux kernel's ALSA implementation could allow a local, privileged user to leak kernel memory to user space. (CVE-2014-4652, Low)

  • NASL family SuSE Local Security Checks
    NASL id SUSE_11_KERNEL-BIGSMP-201409-140924.NASL
    description The SUSE Linux Enterprise 11 Service Pack 3 kernel has been updated to fix various bugs and security issues. The following security bugs have been fixed : - The media_device_enum_entities function in drivers/media/media-device.c in the Linux kernel before 3.14.6 does not initialize a certain data structure, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory by leveraging /dev/media0 read access for a MEDIA_IOC_ENUM_ENTITIES ioctl call. (bnc#882804). (CVE-2014-1739) - mm/shmem.c in the Linux kernel through 3.15.1 does not properly implement the interaction between range notification and hole punching, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (i_mutex hold) by using the mmap system call to access a hole, as demonstrated by interfering with intended shmem activity by blocking completion of (1) an MADV_REMOVE madvise call or (2) an FALLOC_FL_PUNCH_HOLE fallocate call. (bnc#883518). (CVE-2014-4171) - arch/x86/kernel/entry_32.S in the Linux kernel through 3.15.1 on 32-bit x86 platforms, when syscall auditing is enabled and the sep CPU feature flag is set, allows local users to cause a denial of service (OOPS and system crash) via an invalid syscall number, as demonstrated by number 1000. (bnc#883724). (CVE-2014-4508) - The sctp_association_free function in net/sctp/associola.c in the Linux kernel before 3.15.2 does not properly manage a certain backlog value, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (socket outage) via a crafted SCTP packet. (bnc#885422). (CVE-2014-4667) - The PPPoL2TP feature in net/l2tp/l2tp_ppp.c in the Linux kernel through 3.15.6 allows local users to gain privileges by leveraging data-structure differences between an l2tp socket and an inet socket. (bnc#887082). (CVE-2014-4943) - The sctp_assoc_update function in net/sctp/associola.c in the Linux kernel through 3.15.8, when SCTP authentication is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and OOPS) by starting to establish an association between two endpoints immediately after an exchange of INIT and INIT ACK chunks to establish an earlier association between these endpoints in the opposite direction. (bnc#889173). (CVE-2014-5077) - Stack consumption vulnerability in the parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 allows local users to cause a denial of service (uncontrolled recursion, and system crash or reboot) via a crafted iso9660 image with a CL entry referring to a directory entry that has a CL entry. (bnc#892490). (CVE-2014-5471) - The parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal function in fs/isofs/rock.c in the Linux kernel through 3.16.1 allows local users to cause a denial of service (unkillable mount process) via a crafted iso9660 image with a self-referential CL entry. (bnc#892490). (CVE-2014-5472) - Race condition in the mac80211 subsystem in the Linux kernel before 3.13.7 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (system crash) via network traffic that improperly interacts with the WLAN_STA_PS_STA state (aka power-save mode), related to sta_info.c and tx.c. (bnc#871797). (CVE-2014-2706) - The rd_build_device_space function in drivers/target/target_core_rd.c in the Linux kernel before 3.14 does not properly initialize a certain data structure, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from ramdisk_mcp memory by leveraging access to a SCSI initiator. (bnc#882639). (CVE-2014-4027) - The futex_requeue function in kernel/futex.c in the Linux kernel through 3.14.5 does not ensure that calls have two different futex addresses, which allows local users to gain privileges via a crafted FUTEX_REQUEUE command that facilitates unsafe waiter modification. (bnc#880892). (CVE-2014-3153) - Avoid infinite loop when processing indirect ICBs (bnc#896689) The following non-security bugs have been fixed:. (CVE-2014-6410) - ACPI / PAD: call schedule() when need_resched() is true. (bnc#866911) - ACPI: Fix bug when ACPI reset register is implemented in system memory.

  • NASL family Scientific Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id SL_20141209_KERNEL_ON_SL7_X.NASL
    description * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's SCTP implementation handled the association's output queue. A remote attacker could send specially crafted packets that would cause the system to use an excessive amount of memory, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2014-3688, Important) * Two flaws were found in the way the Apple Magic Mouse/Trackpad multi- touch driver and the Minibox PicoLCD driver handled invalid HID reports. An attacker with physical access to the system could use these flaws to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-3181, CVE-2014-3186, Moderate) * A memory corruption flaw was found in the way the USB ConnectTech WhiteHEAT serial driver processed completion commands sent via USB Request Blocks buffers. An attacker with physical access to the system could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-3185, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's keys subsystem handled the termination condition in the associative array garbage collection functionality. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2014-3631, Moderate) * Multiple flaws were found in the way the Linux kernel's ALSA implementation handled user controls. A local, privileged user could use either of these flaws to crash the system. (CVE-2014-4654, CVE-2014-4655, CVE-2014-4656, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's VFS subsystem handled reference counting when performing unmount operations on symbolic links. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to exhaust all available memory on the system or, potentially, trigger a use-after-free error, resulting in a system crash or privilege escalation. (CVE-2014-5045, Moderate) * A flaw was found in the way the get_dumpable() function return value was interpreted in the ptrace subsystem of the Linux kernel. When 'fs.suid_dumpable' was set to 2, a local, unprivileged local user could use this flaw to bypass intended ptrace restrictions and obtain potentially sensitive information. (CVE-2013-2929, Low) * A stack overflow flaw caused by infinite recursion was found in the way the Linux kernel's UDF file system implementation processed indirect ICBs. An attacker with physical access to the system could use a specially crafted UDF image to crash the system. (CVE-2014-6410, Low) * An information leak flaw in the way the Linux kernel handled media device enumerate entities IOCTL requests could allow a local user able to access the /dev/media0 device file to leak kernel memory bytes. (CVE-2014-1739, Low) * An out-of-bounds read flaw in the Logitech Unifying receiver driver could allow an attacker with physical access to the system to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-3182, Low) * Multiple out-of-bounds write flaws were found in the way the Cherry Cymotion keyboard driver, KYE/Genius device drivers, Logitech device drivers, Monterey Genius KB29E keyboard driver, Petalynx Maxter remote control driver, and Sunplus wireless desktop driver handled invalid HID reports. An attacker with physical access to the system could use either of these flaws to write data past an allocated memory buffer. (CVE-2014-3184, Low) * An information leak flaw was found in the RAM Disks Memory Copy (rd_mcp) back end driver of the iSCSI Target subsystem could allow a privileged user to leak the contents of kernel memory to an iSCSI initiator remote client. (CVE-2014-4027, Low) * An information leak flaw in the Linux kernel's ALSA implementation could allow a local, privileged user to leak kernel memory to user space. (CVE-2014-4652, Low)

    description Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Red Hat Product Security 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. * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel handled GS segment register base switching when recovering from a #SS (stack segment) fault on an erroneous return to user space. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-9322, Important) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's SCTP implementation handled malformed or duplicate Address Configuration Change Chunks (ASCONF). A remote attacker could use either of these flaws to crash the system. (CVE-2014-3673, CVE-2014-3687, Important) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's SCTP implementation handled the association's output queue. A remote attacker could send specially crafted packets that would cause the system to use an excessive amount of memory, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2014-3688, Important) * A stack overflow flaw caused by infinite recursion was found in the way the Linux kernel's UDF file system implementation processed indirect ICBs. An attacker with physical access to the system could use a specially crafted UDF image to crash the system. (CVE-2014-6410, Low) * It was found that the Linux kernel's networking implementation did not correctly handle the setting of the keepalive socket option on raw sockets. A local user able to create a raw socket could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2012-6657, Low) * It was found that the parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal() function of the Linux kernel's ISOFS implementation did not correctly check relocated directories when processing Rock Ridge child link (CL) tags. An attacker with physical access to the system could use a specially crafted ISO image to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-5471, CVE-2014-5472, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Andy Lutomirski for reporting CVE-2014-9322. The CVE-2014-3673 issue was discovered by Liu Wei of Red Hat. Bug fixes : * This update fixes a race condition issue between the sock_queue_err_skb function and sk_forward_alloc handling in the socket error queue (MSG_ERRQUEUE), which could occasionally cause the kernel, for example when using PTP, to incorrectly track allocated memory for the error queue, in which case a traceback would occur in the system log. (BZ#1155427) * The zcrypt device driver did not detect certain crypto cards and the related domains for crypto adapters on System z and s390x architectures. Consequently, it was not possible to run the system on new crypto hardware. This update enables toleration mode for such devices so that the system can make use of newer crypto hardware. (BZ#1158311) * After mounting and unmounting an XFS file system several times consecutively, the umount command occasionally became unresponsive. This was caused by the xlog_cil_force_lsn() function that was not waiting for completion as expected. With this update, xlog_cil_force_lsn() has been modified to correctly wait for completion, thus fixing this bug. (BZ#1158325) * When using the ixgbe adapter with disabled LRO and the tx-usec or rs-usec variables set to 0, transmit interrupts could not be set lower than the default of 8 buffered tx frames. Consequently, a delay of TCP transfer occurred. The restriction of a minimum of 8 buffered frames has been removed, and the TCP delay no longer occurs. (BZ#1158326) * The offb driver has been updated for the QEMU standard VGA adapter, fixing an incorrect displaying of colors issue. (BZ#1158328) * Under certain circumstances, when a discovered MTU expired, the IPv6 connection became unavailable for a short period of time. This bug has been fixed, and the connection now works as expected. (BZ#1161418) * A low throughput occurred when using the dm-thin driver to write to unprovisioned or shared chunks for a thin pool with the chunk size bigger than the max_sectors_kb variable. (BZ#1161420) * Large write workloads on thin LVs could cause the iozone and smallfile utilities to terminate unexpectedly. (BZ#1161421)

Red Hat Product Security 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. * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel handled GS segment register base switching when recovering from a #SS (stack segment) fault on an erroneous return to user space. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-9322, Important) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's SCTP implementation handled malformed or duplicate Address Configuration Change Chunks (ASCONF). A remote attacker could use either of these flaws to crash the system. (CVE-2014-3673, CVE-2014-3687, Important) * A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's SCTP implementation handled the association's output queue.

An attacker with physical access to the system could use a specially crafted UDF image to crash the system. (CVE-2014-6410, Low) * It was found that the Linux kernel's networking implementation did not correctly handle the setting of the keepalive socket option on raw sockets. A local user able to create a raw socket could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2012-6657, Low) * It was found that the parse_rock_ridge_inode_internal() function of the Linux kernel's ISOFS implementation did not correctly check relocated directories when processing Rock Ridge child link (CL) tags. An attacker with physical access to the system could use a specially crafted ISO image to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-5471, CVE-2014-5472, Low) Red Hat would like to thank Andy Lutomirski for reporting CVE-2014-9322. The CVE-2014-3673 issue was discovered by Liu Wei of Red Hat. Bug fixes : * This update fixes a race condition issue between the sock_queue_err_skb function and sk_forward_alloc handling in the socket error queue (MSG_ERRQUEUE), which could occasionally cause the kernel, for example when using PTP, to incorrectly track allocated memory for the error queue, in which case a traceback would occur in the system log. (BZ#1155427) * The zcrypt device driver did not detect certain crypto cards and the related domains for crypto adapters on System z and s390x architectures. Consequently, it was not possible to run the system on new crypto hardware. This update enables toleration mode for such devices so that the system can make use of newer crypto hardware. (BZ#1158311) * After mounting and unmounting an XFS file system several times consecutively, the umount command occasionally became unresponsive. This was caused by the xlog_cil_force_lsn() function that was not waiting for completion as expected. With this update, xlog_cil_force_lsn() has been modified to correctly wait for completion, thus fixing this bug. (BZ#1158325) * When using the ixgbe adapter with disabled LRO and the tx-usec or rs-usec variables set to 0, transmit interrupts could not be set lower than the default of 8 buffered tx frames. Consequently, a delay of TCP transfer occurred. The restriction of a minimum of 8 buffered frames has been removed, and the TCP delay no longer occurs. (BZ#1158326) * The offb driver has been updated for the QEMU standard VGA adapter, fixing an incorrect displaying of colors issue. (BZ#1158328) * Under certain circumstances, when a discovered MTU expired, the IPv6 connection became unavailable for a short period of time. This bug has been fixed, and the connection now works as expected. (BZ#1161418) * A low throughput occurred when using the dm-thin driver to write to unprovisioned or shared chunks for a thin pool with the chunk size bigger than the max_sectors_kb variable. (BZ#1161420) * Large write workloads on thin LVs could cause the iozone and smallfile utilities to terminate unexpectedly. (BZ#1161421)

This was caused by the xlog_cil_force_lsn() function that was not waiting for completion as expected. With this update, xlog_cil_force_lsn() has been modified to correctly wait for completion, thus fixing this bug. - When using the ixgbe adapter with disabled LRO and the tx-usec or rs- usec variables set to 0, transmit interrupts could not be set lower than the default of 8 buffered tx frames. Consequently, a delay of TCP transfer occurred. The restriction of a minimum of 8 buffered frames has been removed, and the TCP delay no longer occurs. - The offb driver has been updated for the QEMU standard VGA adapter, fixing an incorrect displaying of colors issue. - Under certain circumstances, when a discovered MTU expired, the IPv6 connection became unavailable for a short period of time. This bug has been fixed, and the connection now works as expected. - A low throughput occurred when using the dm-thin driver to write to unprovisioned or shared chunks for a thin pool with the chunk size bigger than the max_sectors_kb variable. - Large write workloads on thin LVs could cause the iozone and smallfile utilities to terminate unexpectedly.
