1. Summary:

An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.6
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 CodeReady Linux Builder EUS (v.8.6) - aarch64, ppc64le, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux BaseOS EUS (v.8.6) - aarch64, noarch, ppc64le, s390x, x86_64

3. Description:

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

index filter (CVE-2023-1829)

* kernel: UAF in nftables when nft_set_lookup_global triggered after
handling named and anonymous sets in batch requests (CVE-2023-3390)

* kernel: cls_flower: out-of-bounds write in fl_set_geneve_opt()
(CVE-2023-35788)

* kernel: when setting font with malicious data by ioctl PIO_FONT, kernel
will write memory out of bounds (CVE-2021-33656)

* kernel: save/restore speculative MSRs during S3 suspend/resume
(CVE-2023-1637)

* Kernel: bluetooth: Unauthorized management command execution
(CVE-2023-2002)

* kernel: OOB access in the Linux kernel's XFS subsystem (CVE-2023-2124)

* hw: amd: Cross-Process Information Leak (CVE-2023-20593)

* kernel: tls: race condition in do_tls_getsockopt may lead to
use-after-free or NULL pointer dereference (CVE-2023-28466)
