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

1. Summary:

An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
Extended Lifecycle Support.

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 Server (v. 5 ELS) - i386, noarch, s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux
operating system.

Security Fix(es):

* kernel: Use-after-free vulnerability in DCCP socket (CVE-2017-8824)

* kernel: Use-after-free in sys_mq_notify() (CVE-2017-11176)

* kernel: Use-after-free in snd_seq_ioctl_create_port() (CVE-2017-15265)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS
score, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in
the References section.

Red Hat would like to thank Mohamed Ghannam for reporting CVE-2017-8824.

Bug Fix(es):

* Previously, on certain Intel 64 systems, the microcode contained a new
model-specific register (MSR) that was not present in the older microcode
running on CPUs that had not been updated yet. As a consequence, the system
crashed due to a general protection fault on a CPU running the older
microcode. This update fixes the bug by having the kernel use MSR access
routines that handle the general protection fault. As a result, the system
no longer crashes in the described scenario. (BZ#1651481)

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/):

1470659 - CVE-2017-11176 kernel: Use-after-free in sys_mq_notify()
1501878 - CVE-2017-15265 kernel: Use-after-free in snd_seq_ioctl_create_port()
