RHEL 8 : kernel (RHSA-2022:5626)

high Nessus Plugin ID 163291

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the RHSA-2022:5626 advisory.

- kernel: the copy-on-write implementation can grant unintended write access because of a race condition in a THP mapcount check (CVE-2020-29368)

- kernel: cgroup: Use open-time creds and namespace for migration perm checks (CVE-2021-4197)

- kernel: Race condition in races in sk_peer_pid and sk_peer_cred accesses (CVE-2021-4203)

- 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 RHEL kernel package based on the guidance in RHSA-2022:5626.
