                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Important: kernel-rt security and bug fix update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2017:1647-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise MRG for RHEL-6
Advisory URL:      https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2017:1647
Issue date:        2017-06-28
CVE Names:         CVE-2017-1000364 CVE-2017-6214 CVE-2017-7645 
                   CVE-2017-7895 
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for kernel-rt is now available for Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability
from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

MRG Realtime for RHEL 6 Server v.2 - noarch, x86_64

3. Description:

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 way memory was being allocated on the stack for
user space binaries. If heap (or different memory region) and stack memory
regions were adjacent to each other, an attacker could use this flaw to
jump over the stack guard gap, cause controlled memory corruption on
process stack or the adjacent memory region, and thus increase their
privileges on the system. This is a kernel-side mitigation which increases
the stack guard gap size from one page to 1 MiB to make successful
exploitation of this issue more difficult. (CVE-2017-1000364, Important)

* The NFS2/3 RPC client could send long arguments to the NFS server. These
encoded arguments are stored in an array of memory pages, and accessed
using pointer variables. Arbitrarily long arguments could make these
pointers point outside the array and cause an out-of-bounds memory access.
A remote user or program could use this flaw to crash the kernel, resulting
in denial of service. (CVE-2017-7645, Important)

* The NFSv2 and NFSv3 server implementations in the Linux kernel through
4.10.13 lacked certain checks for the end of a buffer. A remote attacker
could trigger a pointer-arithmetic error or possibly cause other
unspecified impacts using crafted requests related to fs/nfsd/nfs3xdr.c and
fs/nfsd/nfsxdr.c. (CVE-2017-7895, Important)

* A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's handling of packets with the URG
flag. Applications using the splice() and tcp_splice_read() functionality
could allow a remote attacker to force the kernel to enter a condition in
which it could loop indefinitely. (CVE-2017-6214, Moderate)

Red Hat would like to thank Qualys Research Labs for reporting
CVE-2017-1000364 and Ari Kauppi for reporting CVE-2017-7895.

Bug Fix(es):

* kernel-rt packages have been upgraded to the 3.10.0-514 source tree,
which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version.
(BZ#1452745)

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:

https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258

The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

1443615 - CVE-2017-7645 kernel: nfsd: Incorrect handling of long RPC replies
1446103 - CVE-2017-7895 kernel: NFSv3 server does not properly handle payload bounds checking of WRITE requests
1452745 - update the MRG 2.5.z 3.10 kernel-rt sources
