Description

An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

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.

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

Security Fix(es) :

  • kernel: buffer overflow in cfg80211_mgd_wext_giwessid in net/wireless/ wext-sme.c (CVE-2019-17133)

  • kernel: unprivileged users able to create RAW sockets in AF_ISDN network protocol. (CVE-2019-17055)

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

Bug Fix(es) :

  • LACP bond does not function because bonding driver sees slave speed & duplex as Unknown (BZ#1772779)

  • ixgbevf guess causes excessive interrupts in hypervisor due to get link settings (BZ#1795404)
