    =====================================================================
    
    1. Summary:
    
    An update for kernel is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.
    
    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 CodeReady Linux Builder (v. 8) - aarch64, ppc64le, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux BaseOS (v. 8) - aarch64, noarch, ppc64le, s390x, x86_64
    
    3. Description:
    
    The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux
    operating system.
    
    Security Fix(es):
    
    * A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way Linux kernel's vhost
    functionality that translates virtqueue buffers to IOVs, logged the buffer
    descriptors during migration. A privileged guest user able to pass
    descriptors with invalid length to the host when migration is underway,
    could use this flaw to increase their privileges on the host.
    (CVE-2019-14835)
    
    4. Solution:
