RHEL 8 : kernel (RHSA-2022:5636)

high Nessus Plugin ID 163284

Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the RHSA-2022:5636 advisory.

- kernel: Small table perturb size in the TCP source port generation algorithm can lead to information leak (CVE-2022-1012)

- kernel: race condition in perf_event_open leads to privilege escalation (CVE-2022-1729)

- kernel: a use-after-free write in the netfilter subsystem can lead to privilege escalation to root (CVE-2022-32250)

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

Solution

Update the affected packages.
