    Synopsis:          Important: kernel-alt security update
    Advisory ID:       RHSA-2019:1602-01
    Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
    Advisory URL:      https://access.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2019:1602
    Issue date:        2019-06-25
    CVE Names:         CVE-2019-11477 CVE-2019-11478 CVE-2019-11479 
    =====================================================================
    
    1. Summary:
    
    An update for kernel-alt is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.
    
    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 Enterprise Linux for ARM and IBM Power LE (POWER9) Server (v. 7) - aarch64, noarch, ppc64le, s390x
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux for ARM and IBM Power LE (POWER9) Server Optional (v. 7) - aarch64, noarch, ppc64le
    
    3. Description:
    
    The kernel-alt packages provide the Linux kernel version 4.x.
    
    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: 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.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
    described in this advisory, refer to:

    5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
    
    1719123 - CVE-2019-11477 Kernel: tcp: integer overflow while processing SACK blocks allows remote denial of service
    1719128 - CVE-2019-11478 Kernel: tcp: excessive resource consumption while processing SACK blocks allows remote denial of service
    1719129 - CVE-2019-11479 kernel: tcp: excessive resource consumption for TCP connections with low MSS allows remote denial of service
