1. Summary:

An updated Adobe Flash Player package that fixes multiple security issues
is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Extras.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having critical
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability
from the CVE links in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Desktop version 4 Extras - i386
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 Extras - i386
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 Extras - i386
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 Extras - i386

3. Description:

The flash-plugin package contains a Mozilla Firefox compatible Adobe Flash
Player web browser plug-in.

This update fixes multiple vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player. These
vulnerabilities are detailed on the Adobe security page APSB10-26, listed
in the References section.

Multiple security flaws were found in the way flash-plugin displayed
certain SWF content. An attacker could use these flaws to create a
specially-crafted SWF file that would cause flash-plugin to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code when the victim loaded a page
containing the specially-crafted SWF content. (CVE-2010-3639,
CVE-2010-3640, CVE-2010-3641, CVE-2010-3642, CVE-2010-3643, CVE-2010-3644,
CVE-2010-3645, CVE-2010-3646, CVE-2010-3647, CVE-2010-3648, CVE-2010-3649,
CVE-2010-3650, CVE-2010-3652, CVE-2010-3654)

An input validation flaw was discovered in flash-plugin. Certain server
encodings could lead to a bypass of cross-domain policy file restrictions,
possibly leading to cross-domain information disclosure. (CVE-2010-3636)

All users of Adobe Flash Player should install this updated package, which
upgrades Flash Player to version 9.0.289.0.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

[RHSA-2010:0839-01] Moderate: kernel security and bug fix update
=====================================================================
Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Moderate: kernel security and bug fix update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2010:0839-01
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2010-0839.html
Issue date: 2010-11-09
CVE Names: CVE-2010-3066 CVE-2010-3067 CVE-2010-3078
CVE-2010-3086 CVE-2010-3477
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated kernel packages that fix multiple security issues and several bugs
are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability
from the CVE links in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, noarch, ppc, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, noarch, x86_64

3. Description:

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

This update fixes the following security issues:

* A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the io_submit_one() function
in the Linux kernel asynchronous I/O implementation. A local, unprivileged
user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2010-3066,
Moderate)

* A flaw was found in the xfs_ioc_fsgetxattr() function in the Linux kernel
XFS file system implementation. A data structure in xfs_ioc_fsgetxattr()
was not initialized properly before being copied to user-space. A local,
unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause an information leak.
(CVE-2010-3078, Moderate)

* The exception fixup code for the __futex_atomic_op1, __futex_atomic_op2,
and futex_atomic_cmpxchg_inatomic() macros replaced the LOCK prefix with a
NOP instruction. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a
denial of service. (CVE-2010-3086, Moderate)

* A flaw was found in the tcf_act_police_dump() function in the Linux
kernel network traffic policing implementation. A data structure in
tcf_act_police_dump() was not initialized properly before being copied to
user-space. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause an
information leak. (CVE-2010-3477, Moderate)

* A missing upper bound integer check was found in the sys_io_submit()
function in the Linux kernel asynchronous I/O implementation. A local,
unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause an information leak.
(CVE-2010-3067, Low)

Red Hat would like to thank Tavis Ormandy for reporting CVE-2010-3066,
CVE-2010-3086, and CVE-2010-3067, and Dan Rosenberg for reporting
CVE-2010-3078.

This update also fixes several bugs. Documentation for these bug fixes will
be available shortly from the Technical Notes document linked to in the
References section.

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported
patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this
update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259

To install kernel packages manually, use "rpm -ivh [package]". Do not
use "rpm -Uvh" as that will remove the running kernel binaries from
your system. You may use "rpm -e" to remove old kernels after
determining that the new kernel functions properly on your system.
