Issue Overview:

A race condition in the IPC object implementation in the Linux kernel through 4.2.3 allows local users to gain privileges by triggering an ipc_addid call that leads to uid and gid comparisons against uninitialized data, related to msg.c, shm.c, and util.c. (CVE-2015-7613)

Linux kernels built with the name spaces support(CONFIG_NAMESPACE) is vulnerable to a potential privilege escalation flaw. It could occur when a process within a container escapes the intended bind mounts to access the full file system. A privileged user inside a container could use this flaw to potentially gain full privileges on a system. (CVE-2015-2925)

A NULL-pointer dereference vulnerability was found in the Linux kernel’s TCP stack, in net/netfilter/nf_nat_redirect.c in the nf_nat_redirect_ipv4() function. A remote, unauthenticated user could exploit this flaw to create a system crash (denial of service). (CVE-2015-8787)

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.
