Synopsis

The remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The remote Oracle Linux 6 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ELSA-2019-4675 advisory.

- Microarchitectural Store Buffer Data Sampling (MSBDS): Store buffers on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via a side channel with local access. A list of impacted products can be found here:
https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/corporate-information/SA00233-microcode- update-guidance_05132019.pdf (CVE-2018-12126)

- Microarchitectural Fill Buffer Data Sampling (MFBDS): Fill buffers on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via a side channel with local access. A list of impacted products can be found here:
https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/corporate-information/SA00233-microcode- update-guidance_05132019.pdf (CVE-2018-12130)

- Microarchitectural Load Port Data Sampling (MLPDS): Load ports on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via a side channel with local access. A list of impacted products can be found here:
https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/corporate-information/SA00233-microcode- update-guidance_05132019.pdf (CVE-2018-12127)

- Microarchitectural Data Sampling Uncacheable Memory (MDSUM): Uncacheable memory on some microprocessors utilizing speculative execution may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via a side channel with local access. A list of impacted products can be found here:
https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/corporate-information/SA00233-microcode- update-guidance_05132019.pdf (CVE-2019-11091)

- The do_hidp_sock_ioctl function in net/bluetooth/hidp/sock.c in the Linux kernel before 5.0.15 allows a local user to obtain potentially sensitive information from kernel stack memory via a HIDPCONNADD command, because a name field may not end with a '\0' character. (CVE-2019-11884)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
