Rhel

RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) and CentOS Linux 7 users have received a new Linux kernel security update fixing several vulnerabilities affecting the Intel graphics drivers.

The new Linux kernel security update comes exactly two months after the previous one and it’s here to fix three security vulnerabilities discovered by various security researchers in the Intel graphics drivers (i915), as well as three other security flaws.

The three security vulnerabilities affecting the Intel graphics drivers are CVE-2020-12362, an integer overflow that could allow a privileged user to escalate his/her privileges via local access, CVE-2020-12363, an input validation flaw, and CVE-2020-12364, a null pointer reference, both of which allowing a privileged user to initiate a denial-of-service (DoS) attack via local access
