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: MIDI driver race condition leads to a double-free (CVE-2018-10902)

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) :

  • Previously backported upstream patch caused a change in the behavior of page fault handler. As a consequence, applications compiled through GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) version 4.4.7 sometimes generated stack access exceeding the 64K limit. Running such applications subsequently triggered a segmentation fault. With this update, the 64k limit check in the page fault handler has been removed. As a result, running the affected applications no longer triggers the segmentation fault in the described scenario.

Note that removing the limit check does not impact the integrity of the kernel itself. (BZ#1644401)
