Overview

The kernel-rt packages provide the Real Time Linux Kernel, which enables fine-tuning for systems with extremely high determinism requirements. The kernel-rt packages have been upgraded to the kernel-3.10.0-327.36.1 source tree, which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version. (BZ#1366538) Security Fix(es): A security flaw was found in the Linux kernel in the mark_source_chains() function in "net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_tables.c". It is possible for a user-supplied "ipt_entry" structure to have a large "next_offset" field. This field is not bounds checked prior to writing to a counter value at the supplied offset. (CVE-2016-3134, Important) A flaw was discovered in processing setsockopt for 32 bit processes on 64 bit systems. This flaw will allow attackers to alter arbitrary kernel memory when unloading a kernel module. This action is usually restricted to root-privileged users but can also be leveraged if the kernel is compiled with CONFIG_USER_NS and CONFIG_NET_NS and the user is granted elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-4997, Important) * An out-of-bounds heap memory access leading to a Denial of Service, heap disclosure, or further impact was found in setsockopt(). The function call is normally restricted to root, however some processes with cap_sys_admin may also be able to trigger this flaw in privileged container environments. (CVE-2016-4998, Moderate)
