Description

Security Fix(es) :

  • Kernel: page cache side channel attacks (CVE-2019-5489)

  • kernel: Salsa20 encryption algorithm does not correctly handle zero-length inputs allowing local attackers to cause denial-of-service (CVE-2017-17805)

  • kernel: Unprivileged users able to inspect kernel stacks of arbitrary tasks (CVE-2018-17972)

  • kernel: hw: Spectre SWAPGS gadget vulnerability (CVE-2019-1125)

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) :

  • OOPS with NULL pointer exception in v4l2_ctrl_query_menu when second arg of function is NULL (BZ#1647975)

  • Another RHEL 6 hang in congestion_wait() (BZ#1658254)

  • kernel crash after running user space script (BZ#1663262)

  • RHEL-6.10: Don
