An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6 ExtendedUpdate Support.Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact ofImportant.

A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which givesa detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVElink(s) in the References section.
The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operatingsystem.Security Fix(es):* A flaw was found in the way certain interfaces of the Linux kernel’sInfiniband subsystem used write() as bi-directional ioctl() replacement, whichcould lead to insufficient memory security checks when being invoked using thesplice() system call.

A local unprivileged user on a system with eitherInfiniband hardware present or RDMA Userspace Connection Manager Access moduleexplicitly loaded, could use this flaw to escalate their privileges on thesystem. (CVE-2016-4565, Important)Red Hat would like to thank Jann Horn for reporting this issue.Bug Fix(es):* After upgrading the kernel, the CPU load average was higher compared to theprior kernel version due to the modification of the scheduler.

The providedpatchset rolls back the calculation algorithm of the load average to the statusof the previous system version, thus resulting in lower values in the samesystem load. (BZ#1343013)
