Updated kernel packages that fix two security issues and one bug are nowavailable for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 Extended Update Support.The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as havingImportant security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) basescores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for eachvulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linuxoperating system.* A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel’s netfilter connectiontracking implementation for Datagram Congestion Control Protocol (DCCP)packets used the skb_header_pointer() function. A remote attacker could usethis flaw to send a specially crafted DCCP packet to crash the system or,potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-2523,Important)* A flaw was found in the way the handle_rx() function handled largenetwork packets when mergeable buffers were disabled. A privileged guestuser could use this flaw to crash the host or corrupt QEMU process memoryon the host, which could potentially result in arbitrary code execution onthe host with the privileges of the QEMU process. (CVE-2014-0077, Moderate)The CVE-2014-0077 issue was discovered by Michael S. Tsirkin of Red Hat.This update also fixes the following bug:* Prior to this update, a guest-provided value was used as the head lengthof the socket buffer allocated on the host. If the host was under heavymemory load and the guest-provided value was too large, the allocationcould have failed, resulting in stalls and packet drops in the guest’s Txpath. With this update, the guest-provided value has been limited to areasonable size so that socket buffer allocations on the host succeedregardless of the memory load on the host, and guests can send packetswithout experiencing packet drops or stalls. (BZ#1092350)All kernel users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, whichcontain backported patches to correct these issues. The system must berebooted for this update to take effect.
Before applying this update, make sure all previously released erratarelevant to your system have been applied.This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use theRed Hat Network to apply this update are available athttps://access.redhat.com/site/articles/11258To install kernel packages manually, use “rpm -ivh [package]”. Do not use”rpm -Uvh” as that will remove the running kernel binaries from yoursystem. You may use “rpm -e” to remove old kernels after determining thatthe new kernel functions properly on your system.Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server EUS (v. 6.3.z)
