Updated kernel packages that fix one security issue are now available forRed Hat Enterprise Linux 5.6 Long Life.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.* It was found that the Linux kernel’s Infiniband subsystem did notproperly sanitize input parameters while registering memory regions fromuser space via the (u)verbs API. A local user with access to a/dev/infiniband/uverbsX device could use this flaw to crash the system or,potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2014-8159,Important)Red Hat would like to thank Mellanox for reporting this issue.All kernel users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, whichcontain a backported patch to correct this issue. The system must berebooted for this update to take effect.
