(RHSA-2022:5224) Important: kernel-rt security and bug fix update


0.001 Low




The kernel-rt packages provide the Real Time Linux Kernel, which enables fine-tuning for systems with extremely high determinism requirements.

Security Fix(es):

  • kernel: Small table perturb size in the TCP source port generation algorithm can lead to information leak (CVE-2022-1012)

  • kernel: race condition in perf_event_open leads to privilege escalation (CVE-2022-1729)

  • kernel: a use-after-free write in the netfilter subsystem can lead to privilege escalation to root (CVE-2022-1966)

  • kernel: buffer overflow in IPsec ESP transformation code (CVE-2022-27666)

  • kernel: the copy-on-write implementation can grant unintended write access because of a race condition in a THP mapcount check (CVE-2020-29368)

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.
