                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Important: kernel-rt security and bug fix update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2018:2789-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise MRG for RHEL-6
Advisory URL:      https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2018:2789
Issue date:        2018-09-25
CVE Names:         CVE-2018-5390 
=====================================================================

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:

Red Hat 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 named SegmentSmack was found in the way the Linux kernel handled
specially crafted TCP packets. A remote attacker could use this flaw to
trigger time and calculation expensive calls to tcp_collapse_ofo_queue()
and tcp_prune_ofo_queue() functions by sending specially modified packets
within ongoing TCP sessions which could lead to a CPU saturation and hence
a denial of service on the system. Maintaining the denial of service
condition requires continuous two-way TCP sessions to a reachable open
port, thus the attacks cannot be performed using spoofed IP addresses.
(CVE-2018-5390)

Red Hat would like to thank Juha-Matti Tilli (Aalto University - Department
of Communications and Networking and Nokia Bell Labs) for reporting this
issue.

Bug Fix(es):

* The kernel-rt packages have been upgraded to the 3.10.0-693.39.1 source
tree, which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version.
(BZ#1616431)

* Previously, preemption was enabled too early after a context switch. If a
task was migrated to another CPU after a context switch, a mismatch between
CPU and runqueue during load balancing sometimes occurred. Consequently, a
runnable task on an idle CPU failed to run, and the operating system became
unresponsive. This update disables preemption in the schedule_tail()
function. As a result, CPU migration during post-schedule processing no
longer occurs, which prevents the above mismatch. The operating system no
longer hangs due to this bug. (BZ#1618466)

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/):

1601704 - CVE-2018-5390 kernel: TCP segments with random offsets allow a remote denial of service (SegmentSmack)
1616431 - update the MRG 2.5.z 3.10 kernel-rt sources
1618466 - RT system hang due to wrong of rq's nr_running [MRG-RT]
