Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.881399
Category:CentOS Local Security Checks
Title:CentOS Update for kernel CESA-2011:0162 centos4 x86_64
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'kernel'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'kernel'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

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

This update fixes the following security issues:

* A heap overflow flaw was found in the Linux kernel's Transparent
Inter-Process Communication protocol (TIPC) implementation. A local,
unprivileged user could use this flaw to escalate their privileges.
(CVE-2010-3859, Important)

* Missing sanity checks were found in gdth_ioctl_alloc() in the gdth driver
in the Linux kernel. A local user with access to '/dev/gdth' on a 64-bit
system could use these flaws to cause a denial of service or escalate their
privileges. (CVE-2010-4157, Moderate)

* A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the Bluetooth HCI UART
driver in the Linux kernel. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw
to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4242, Moderate)

* A flaw was found in the Linux kernel's garbage collector for AF_UNIX
sockets. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to trigger a
denial of service (out-of-memory condition). (CVE-2010-4249, Moderate)

* Missing initialization flaws were found in the Linux kernel. A local,
unprivileged user could use these flaws to cause information leaks.
(CVE-2010-3876, CVE-2010-4072, CVE-2010-4073, CVE-2010-4075, CVE-2010-4080,
CVE-2010-4083, CVE-2010-4158, Low)

Red Hat would like to thank Alan Cox for reporting CVE-2010-4242, Vegard
Nossum for reporting CVE-2010-4249, Vasiliy Kulikov for reporting
CVE-2010-3876, Kees Cook for reporting CVE-2010-4072, and Dan Rosenberg for
reporting CVE-2010-4073, CVE-2010-4075, CVE-2010-4080, CVE-2010-4083, and
CVE-2010-4158.

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* A flaw was found in the Linux kernel where, if used in conjunction with
another flaw that can result in a kernel Oops, could possibly lead to
privilege escalation. It does not affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 as the
sysctl panic_on_oops variable is turned on by default. However, as a
preventive measure if the variable is turned off by an administrator, this
update addresses the issue. Red Hat would like to thank Nelson Elhage for
reporting this vulnerability. (BZ#659568)

* On Intel I/O Controller Hub 9 (ICH9) hardware, jumbo frame support is
achieved by using page-based sk_buff buffers without any packet split. The
entire frame data is copied to the page(s) rather than some to the
skb->data area and some to the page(s) when performing a typical
packet-split. This caused problems with the filtering code and frames were
getting dropped before they were received by list ...

Affected Software/OS:
