Scientific Linux Security Update : kernel on SL7.x x86_64 (20200407)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 135813

Synopsis

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

Description

* kernel: out of bound read in DVB connexant driver. * kernel: Missing permissions check for request_key() destination allows local attackers to add keys to keyring without Write permission * kernel: denial of service via ioctl call in network tun handling * kernel: usb: missing size check in the __usb_get_extra_descriptor() * kernel:
perf_event_open() and execve() race in setuid programs allows a data leak * kernel: brcmfmac frame validation bypass * kernel: NULL pointer dereference in hci_uart_set_flow_control * kernel: sensitive information disclosure from kernel stack memory via HIDPCONNADD command * kernel: unchecked kstrdup of fwstr in drm_load_edid_firmware leads to denial of service * kernel: use-after-free in arch/x86/lib/insn-eval.c * kernel: denial of service in arch/powerpc/kernel/signal_32.c and arch/powerpc/kernel/signal_64.c via sigreturn() system call * kernel: integer overflow and OOB read in drivers/block/floppy.c * kernel: memory leak in register_queue_kobjects() in net/core/net-sysfs.c leads to denial of service * kernel: buffer-overflow hardening in WiFi beacon validation code. * kernel: (powerpc) incomplete Spectre-RSB mitigation leads to information exposure * kernel: oob memory read in hso_probe in drivers/net/usb/hso.c * Kernel: net: weak IP ID generation leads to remote device tracking * Kernel: net: using kernel space address bits to derive IP ID may potentially break KASLR * kernel: ASLR bypass for setuid binaries due to late install_exec_creds()

Solution

Update the affected packages.
