Synopsis

The remote Virtuozzo host is missing a security update.

Description

According to the version of the vzkernel package and the readykernel-patch installed, the Virtuozzo installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- [3.10.0-693.21.1.vz7.46.7 to 3.10.0-957.12.2.vz7.96.21] Page cache side channel attacks via mincore(). It was discovered that a local attacker could exploit mincore() system call to obtain information about memory pages of the running applications from the page cache even if the contents of these memory pages were not available to the attacker.

- [3.10.0-693.21.1.vz7.46.7 to 3.10.0-957.12.2.vz7.96.21] infiniband: use-after-free in ucma_leave_multicast().
It was found that ucma_leave_multicast() function from 'rdma_ucm' module could try to access a certain data structure after the structure had been freed. This allows an attacker to induce kernel memory corruption, leading to a system crash or other unspecified impact.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Virtuozzo security advisory.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the readykernel patch.
