    1. Summary:
    Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform release 4.1.24 is now available with
    updates to packages and images that fix several bugs and add enhancements.
    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. Description:
    Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is Red Hat's cloud computing
    Kubernetes application platform solution designed for on-premise or private
    cloud deployments.
    This is a text-only advisory for the machine-os-content container image,
    which includes RPM packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux CoreOS.
    Security Fix(es):
    * A flaw was found in the way Intel CPUs handle inconsistency between,
    virtual to physical memory address translations in CPU's local cache and
    system software's Paging structure entries. A privileged guest user may use
    this flaw to induce a hardware Machine Check Error on the host processor,
    resulting in a severe DoS scenario by halting the processor.
    System software like OS OR Virtual Machine Monitor (VMM) use virtual memory
    system for storing program instructions and data in memory.  Virtual Memory
    system uses Paging structures like Page Tables and Page Directories to
    manage system memory. The processor's Memory Management Unit (MMU) uses
    Paging structure entries to translate program's  virtual memory addresses
    to physical memory addresses. The processor stores these address
    translations into its local cache buffer called - Translation Lookaside
    Buffer (TLB).  TLB has two parts, one for instructions and other for data
    System software can modify its Paging structure entries to change address
    mappings OR certain attributes like page size etc. Upon such Paging
    structure alterations in memory, system software must invalidate the
    corresponding address translations in the processor's TLB cache. But before
    this TLB invalidation takes place, a privileged guest user may trigger an
    instruction fetch operation, which could use an already cached, but now
    invalid, virtual to physical address translation from Instruction TLB
    (ITLB). Thus accessing an invalid physical memory address and resulting in
    halting the processor due to the Machine Check Error (MCE) on Page Size
    Change. (CVE-2018-12207)
    * A flaw was found in the way sudo implemented running commands with an
    arbitrary user ID. If a sudoers entry is written to allow users to run a
    command as any user except root, this flaw can be used by an attacker to
    bypass that restriction. (CVE-2019-14287)
    * An improper authorization flaw was discovered in systemd-resolved in the
    way it configures the exposed DBus interface org.freedesktop.resolve1. An
    unprivileged local user could call all DBus methods, even when marked as
    privileged operations. An attacker could abuse this flaw by changing the
    DNS, Search Domain, LLMNR, DNSSEC, and other network link settings without
    any authorization, giving them control of the network names resolution
    process and causing the system to communicate with wrong or malicious
    servers. (CVE-2019-15718)

    will be updated shortly for release 4.1.24, for important instructions on
    how to upgrade your cluster and fully apply this asynchronous errata

    1646768 - CVE-2018-12207 hw: Machine Check Error on Page Size Change (IFU)
    1746057 - CVE-2019-15718 systemd: systemd-resolved allows unprivileged users to configure DNS
