Description

The remote host is missing kernel updates announced in advisory RHSA-2009:0053.

These updated packages address the following security issues:

  • a flaw was found in the Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) subsystem. A local, unprivileged user could use the flaw to listen on the same socket more than once, possibly causing a denial of service. (CVE-2008-5079, Important)

  • a buffer overflow flaw was found in the libertas driver. This could, potentially, lead to a remote denial of service when an invalid beacon or probe response was received. (CVE-2008-5134, Important)

  • a race condition was found in the Linux kernel inotify watch removal and umount implementation. This could allow a local, unprivileged user to cause a privilege escalation or a denial of service. (CVE-2008-5182, Important)

  • the sendmsg() function in the Linux kernel did not block during UNIX socket garbage collection. This could, potentially, lead to a local denial of service. (CVE-2008-5300, Important)

  • a buffer overflow was found in the Linux kernel Partial Reliable Stream Control Transmission Protocol (PR-SCTP) implementation. This could, potentially, lead to a denial of service if a Forward-TSN chunk is received with a large stream ID. (CVE-2009-0065, Important)

  • a deficiency was found in the libATA implementation. This could, potentially, lead to a denial of service. By default, the /dev/sg* devices are accessible only to the root user. (CVE-2008-5700, Low)

For further details on other bugs fixed, please visit the referenced security advisories.

All Red Hat Enterprise MRG users should install this update which addresses these vulnerabilities and fixes these bugs. For this update to take effect, the system must be rebooted.
