Updated kernel packages that fix one security issue and three bugs are nowavailable for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 Extended Update Support.Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Important securityimpact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, whichgives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in theReferences 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 SCTP implementationvalidated INIT chunks when performing Address Configuration Change(ASCONF). A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the system bysending a specially crafted SCTP packet to trigger a NULL pointerdereference on the system. (CVE-2014-7841, Important)This issue was discovered by Liu Wei of Red Hat.This update also fixes the following bugs:* Due to several bugs in the network console logging, a race conditionbetween the network console send operation and the driver’s IRQ handlercould occur, or the network console could access invalid memory content.As a consequence, the respective driver, such as vmxnet3, triggered aBUG_ON() assertion and the system terminated unexpectedly. A patchaddressing these bugs has been applied so that driver’s IRQs are disabledbefore processing the send operation and the network console now accessesthe RCU-protected (read-copy update) data properly. Systems using thenetwork console logging no longer crashes due to the aforementionedconditions. (BZ#1165983)* A bug in the vmxnet3 driver allowed potential race conditions to betriggered when the driver was used with the netconsole module. The raceconditions allowed the driver’s internal New API (NAPI) poll routine to runconcurrently with the netpoll controller routine, which resulted in datacorruption and a subsequent kernel panic. To fix this problem, the vmxnet3driver has been modified to call the appropriate interrupt handler toschedule NAPI poll requests properly. (BZ#1179594)* Prior to this update, nfs_mark_return_delegation() was called without anylocking, resulting in unsafe dereferencing of delegation->inode.Because the inode is only used to discover the nfs_client, the callers nowpass a valid pointer to the nfs_server as a parameter. (BZ#1187637)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.
