    Product:           Red Hat Enterprise MRG for RHEL-6
    Advisory URL:      https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2019:1487
    Issue date:        2019-06-17
    CVE Names:         CVE-2018-7566 CVE-2018-1000004 CVE-2019-11477

    =====================================================================
    
    1. Summary:
    
    An update for kernel-rt is now available for Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.
    
    Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
    of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
    which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability
    from the CVE link(s) in the References section.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat MRG Realtime for RHEL 6 Server v.2 - noarch, x86_64
    
    3. Description:
    
    The kernel-rt packages provide the Real Time Linux Kernel, which enables
    fine-tuning for systems with extremely high determinism requirements.
    
    Security Fix(es):
    
    * An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's
    networking subsystem processed TCP Selective Acknowledgment (SACK)
    segments. While processing SACK segments, the Linux kernel's socket buffer
    (SKB) data structure becomes fragmented. Each fragment is about TCP maximum
    segment size (MSS) bytes. To efficiently process SACK blocks, the Linux
    kernel merges multiple fragmented SKBs into one, potentially overflowing
    the variable holding the number of segments. A remote attacker could use
    this flaw to crash the Linux kernel by sending a crafted sequence of SACK
    segments on a TCP connection with small value of TCP MSS, resulting in a
    denial of service (DoS). (CVE-2019-11477)
    
    * kernel: race condition in snd_seq_write() may lead to UAF or OOB-access
    (CVE-2018-7566)
    
    * kernel: Race condition in sound system can lead to denial of service
    (CVE-2018-1000004)
    
    * Kernel: tcp: excessive resource consumption while processing SACK blocks
    allows remote denial of service (CVE-2019-11478)
    
    * Kernel: tcp: excessive resource consumption for TCP connections with low
    MSS allows remote denial of service (CVE-2019-11479)
    
    For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS
    score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE
    page(s) listed in the References section.
    
    Bug Fix(es):
    
    * update the MRG 2.5.z 3.10 kernel-rt sources (BZ#1711010)
