Issue Overview:

It was found that the Linux kernel’s implementation of vectored pipe read and write functionality did not take into account the I/O vectors that were already processed when retrying after a failed atomic access operation, potentially resulting in memory corruption due to an I/O vector array overrun. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2015-1805)

A flaw was found in the Linux kernels handling of the SCTPs automatic handling of dynamic multi-homed connections. A race condition in the way the Linux kernel handles lists of associations in SCTP sockets using Address Configuration Change messages, leading to list corruption and panics. (CVE-2015-3212)

A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel’s networking implementation handled UDP packets with incorrect checksum values. A remote attacker could potentially use this flaw to trigger an infinite loop in the kernel, resulting in a denial of service on the system, or cause a denial of service in applications using the edge triggered epoll functionality. (CVE-2015-5364)

Affected Packages:

kernel

Issue Correction:
Run yum clean all followed by yum update kernel to update your system. You will need to reboot your system in order for the new kernel to be running.
