1. Summary:

An update for kernel-rt is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.4
Extended Update Support.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability
from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Real Time EUS (v.8.4) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Real Time for NFV EUS (v.8.4) - x86_64

3. Description:

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

Security Fix(es):

* A use-after-free in cls_route filter implementation may lead to privilege
escalation (CVE-2022-2588)

* Information leak in the IPv6 implementation (CVE-2021-45485)

* Information leak in the IPv4 implementation (CVE-2021-45486)

* Incomplete cleanup of multi-core shared buffers (aka SBDR)
(CVE-2022-21123)

* Incomplete cleanup of microarchitectural fill buffers (aka SBDS)
(CVE-2022-21125)

* Incomplete cleanup in specific special register write operations (aka
DRPW) (CVE-2022-21166)

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.

Bug Fix(es):

* update RT source tree to the RHEL-8.4.z12 source tree (BZ#2119160)

* using __this_cpu_add() in preemptible [00000000] - caller is
__mod_memcg_lruvec_state+0x69/0x1c0 [None8.4.0.z] (BZ#2124454)

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:
