Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: kernel security and bug fix update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2007:0169-01
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2007-0169.html
Issue date: 2007-04-30
Updated on: 2007-04-30
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names: CVE-2007-0771 CVE-2007-1000 CVE-2007-1388
- ---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated kernel packages that fix security issues and bugs in the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5 kernel are now available.

This update has been rated as having important security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

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

3. Problem description:

The Linux kernel handles the basic functions of the operating system.

These new kernel packages contain fixes for the following security issues:

* a flaw in the IPv6 socket option handling that allowed a local user to
read arbitrary kernel memory (CVE-2007-1000, Important).

* a flaw in the IPv6 socket option handling that allowed a local user to
cause a denial of service (CVE-2007-1388, Important).

* a flaw in the utrace support that allowed a local user to cause a denial
of service (CVE-2007-0771, Important).

In addition to the security issues described above, a fix for a memory leak
in the audit subsystem and a fix for a data corruption bug on s390 systems
have been included.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 users are advised to upgrade to these erratum
packages, which are not vulnerable to these issues.

4. Solution:

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

This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use
