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

* A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel handled the creation of
temporary IPv6 addresses. If the IPv6 privacy extension was enabled
(/proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/eth0/use_tempaddr is set to '2'), an attacker on
the local network could disable IPv6 temporary address generation, leading
to a potential information disclosure. (CVE-2013-0343, Moderate)

* An information leak flaw was found in the way Linux kernel's device
mapper subsystem, under certain conditions, interpreted data written to
snapshot block devices. An attacker could use this flaw to read data from
disk blocks in free space, which are normally inaccessible. (CVE-2013-4299,
Moderate)

* An off-by-one flaw was found in the way the ANSI CPRNG implementation in
the Linux kernel processed non-block size aligned requests. This could lead
to random numbers being generated with less bits of entropy than expected
when ANSI CPRNG was used. (CVE-2013-4345, Moderate)

* An information leak flaw was found in the way Xen hypervisor emulated the
OUTS instruction for 64-bit paravirtualized guests. A privileged guest user
could use this flaw to leak hypervisor stack memory to the guest.
(CVE-2013-4368, Moderate)

Red Hat would like to thank Fujitsu for reporting CVE-2013-4299, Stephan
Mueller for reporting CVE-2013-4345, and the Xen project for reporting
CVE-2013-4368.

This update also fixes the following bug:

* A bug in the GFS2 code prevented glock work queues from freeing
glock-related memory while the glock memory shrinker repeatedly queued a
large number of demote requests, for example when performing a simultaneous
backup of several live GFS2 volumes with a large file count. As a
consequence, the glock work queues became overloaded which resulted in a
high CPU usage and the GFS2 file systems being unresponsive for a
significant amount of time. A patch has been applied to alleviate this
problem by calling the yield() function after scheduling a certain amount
of tasks on the glock work queues. The problem can now occur only with
extremely high work loads. (BZ#1014714)

All kernel users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must be
rebooted for this update to take effect.
