=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for kernel-alt is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

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:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux for ARM and IBM Power LE (POWER9) Server (v. 7) - aarch64, noarch, ppc64le, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux for ARM and IBM Power LE (POWER9) Server Optional (v. 7) - aarch64, noarch, ppc64le, x86_64

3. Description:

The kernel-alt packages provide the Linux kernel version 4.x.

The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version:
kernel-alt (4.14.0). (BZ#1492717)

Security Fix(es):

* An industry-wide issue was found in the way many modern microprocessor
designs have implemented speculative execution of instructions (a commonly
used performance optimization). There are three primary variants of the
issue which differ in the way the speculative execution can be exploited.

Variant CVE-2017-5715 triggers the speculative execution by utilizing
branch target injection. It relies on the presence of a precisely-defined
instruction sequence in the privileged code as well as the fact that memory
accesses may cause allocation into the microprocessor's data cache even for
speculatively executed instructions that never actually commit (retire). As
a result, an unprivileged attacker could use this flaw to cross the syscall
and guest/host boundaries and read privileged memory by conducting targeted
cache side-channel attacks. (CVE-2017-5715, Important, ARM)

Variant CVE-2017-5753 triggers the speculative execution by performing a
bounds-check bypass. It relies on the presence of a precisely-defined
instruction sequence in the privileged code as well as the fact that memory
accesses may cause allocation into the microprocessor's data cache even for
speculatively executed instructions that never actually commit (retire). As
a result, an unprivileged attacker could use this flaw to cross the syscall
boundary and read privileged memory by conducting targeted cache
side-channel attacks. (CVE-2017-5753, Important, ARM)

Variant CVE-2017-5754 relies on the fact that, on impacted microprocessors,
during speculative execution of instruction permission faults, exception
generation triggered by a faulting access is suppressed until the
retirement of the whole instruction block. In a combination with the fact
that memory accesses may populate the cache even when the block is being
dropped and never committed (executed), an unprivileged local attacker
could use this flaw to read privileged (kernel space) memory by conducting
targeted cache side-channel attacks. (CVE-2017-5754, Important, ARM)

* kernel: memory leak when merging buffers in SCSI IO vectors
(CVE-2017-12190, Moderate)

* kernel: net: double-free and memory corruption in get_net_ns_by_id()
(CVE-2017-15129, Moderate)

* kernel: Incorrect updates of uninstantiated keys crash the kernel
(CVE-2017-15299, Moderate)

* kernel: Missing capabilities check in net/netfilter/nfnetlink_cthelper.c
allows for unprivileged access to systemwide nfnl_cthelper_list structure
(CVE-2017-17448, Moderate)

* kernel: Missing namespace check in net/netlink/af_netlink.c allows for
network monitors to observe systemwide activity (CVE-2017-17449, Moderate)

* kernel: Arbitrary stack overwrite causing oops via crafted signal frame
(CVE-2017-1000255, Moderate)

* kernel: Stack information leak in the EFS element (CVE-2017-1000410,
Moderate)

* kernel: Race condition in sound system can lead to denial of service
(CVE-2018-1000004, Moderate)

* kernel: Buffer overflow in mp_override_legacy_irq() (CVE-2017-11473, Low)

* kernel: Integer overflow in futex.c:futux_requeue can lead to denial of
service or unspecified impact (CVE-2018-6927, Low)

score, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in
the References section.

Red Hat would like to thank Google Project Zero for reporting
CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2017-5753, and CVE-2017-5754; Vitaly Mayatskih for
