Overview

The kernel-rt packages provide the Real Time Linux Kernel, which enables fine-tuning for systems with extremely high determinism requirements. Security Fix(es): A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's key management system where it was possible for an attacker to escalate privileges or crash the machine. If a user key gets negatively instantiated, an error code is cached in the payload area. A negatively instantiated key may be then be positively instantiated by updating it with valid data. However, the ->update key type method must be aware that the error code may be there. (CVE-2015-8539, Important) It was found that fanout_add() in 'net/packet/af_packet.c' in the Linux kernel, before version 4.13.6, allows local users to gain privileges via crafted system calls that trigger mishandling of packet_fanout data structures, because of a race condition (involving fanout_add and packet_do_bind) that leads to a use-after-free bug. (CVE-2017-15649, Important) A vulnerability was found in the Linux kernel where the keyctl_set_reqkey_keyring() function leaks the thread keyring. This allows an unprivileged local user to exhaust kernel memory and thus cause a DoS. (CVE-2017-7472, Moderate) Red Hat would like to thank Dmitry Vyukov of Google engineering for reporting CVE-2015-8539. Bug Fix(es): The kernel-rt packages have been upgraded to 3.10.0-693.15.1 source tree, which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version. (BZ#1519506)
