Description

**CentOS Errata and Security Advisory** CESA-2019:2829 The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system. Security Fix(es): * A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way Linux kernel's vhost functionality that translates virtqueue buffers to IOVs, logged the buffer descriptors during migration. A privileged guest user able to pass descriptors with invalid length to the host when migration is underway, could use this flaw to increase their privileges on the host. (CVE-2019-14835) **Merged security bulletin from advisories:** https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-announce/2019-October/072932.html **Affected packages:** bpftool kernel kernel-abi-whitelists kernel-debug kernel-debug-devel kernel-devel kernel-doc kernel-headers kernel-tools kernel-tools-libs kernel-tools-libs-devel perf python-perf **Upstream details at:** https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2019:2829
