RHEL 9 : kernel-rt (RHSA-2024:1306)

high Nessus Plugin ID 192035

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 9 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the RHSA-2024:1306 advisory.

The kernel-rt packages provide the Real Time Linux Kernel, which enables fine-tuning for systems with extremely high determinism requirements.

Security Fix(es):

* memcg does not limit the number of POSIX file locks allowing memory exhaustion (CVE-2022-0480)

* vmwgfx: NULL pointer dereference in vmw_cmd_dx_define_query (CVE-2022-38096)

* use-after-free in smb2_is_status_io_timeout() (CVE-2023-1192)

* nfp: use-after-free in area_cache_get() (CVE-2022-3545)

* NULL pointer dereference in can_rcv_filter (CVE-2023-2166)

* Slab-out-of-bound read in compare_netdev_and_ip (CVE-2023-2176)

* UAF in nftables when nft_set_lookup_global triggered after handling named and anonymous sets in batch requests (CVE-2023-3390)

* out-of-bounds access in relay_file_read (CVE-2023-3268)

* vmxnet3: NULL pointer dereference in vmxnet3_rq_cleanup() (CVE-2023-4459)

* Gather Data Sampling (GDS) side channel vulnerability (CVE-2022-40982,Downfall)

* net/sched: cls_u32 component reference counter leak if tcf_change_indev() fails (CVE-2023-3609)

* fbcon: out-of-sync arrays in fbcon_mode_deleted due to wrong con2fb_map assignment (CVE-2023-38409)

* Race Condition leading to UAF in Unix Socket could happen in sk_receive_queue ()

* use-after-free in l2cap_sock_release in net/bluetooth/l2cap_sock.c (CVE-2023-40283)

* use after free in unix_stream_sendpage (CVE-2023-4622)

* bpf: Incorrect verifier pruning leads to unsafe code paths being incorrectly marked as safe (CVE-2023-2163)

* A heap out-of-bounds write when function perf_read_group is called and sibling_list is smaller than its child's sibling_list (CVE-2023-5717)

* ktls overwrites readonly memory pages when using function splice with a ktls socket as destination (CVE-2024-0646)

* use-after-free in IPv4 IGMP (CVE-2023-6932)

* GSM multiplexing race condition leads to privilege escalation (CVE-2023-6546,ZDI-CAN-20527)

* refcount leak in ctnetlink_create_conntrack() (CVE-2023-7192)

Bug Fix(es):

* NULL pointer dereference in can_rcv_filter (JIRA:RHEL-19524)

* update RT source tree to the latest RHEL-9.0.z Batch 15 (JIRA:RHEL-21555)

* Gather Data Sampling (GDS) side channel vulnerability (JIRA:RHEL-9285)

* A heap out-of-bounds write (JIRA:RHEL-18011)

* Slab-out-of-bound read in compare_netdev_and_ip (JIRA:RHEL-19398)

* A flaw leading to a use-after-free in area_cache_get() (JIRA:RHEL-19534)

* Incorrect verifier pruning leads to unsafe code paths being incorrectly marked as safe (JIRA:RHEL-8980)

* various flaws (JIRA:RHEL-16150)

* refcount leak in ctnetlink_create_conntrack() (JIRA:RHEL-20311)

* use-after-free in l2cap_sock_release in net/bluetooth/l2cap_sock.c (JIRA:RHEL-20502)

* ktls overwrites readonly memory pages when using function splice with a ktls socket as destination (JIRA:RHEL-22095)

* use-after-free in smb2_is_status_io_timeout() (JIRA:RHEL-15171)

* use-after-free in IPv4 IGMP (JIRA:RHEL-21658)

* memcg does not limit the number of POSIX file locks allowing memory exhaustion (JIRA:RHEL-8996)

* GSM multiplexing race condition leads to privilege escalation (JIRA:RHEL-19968)

* NULL pointer dereference in vmw_cmd_dx_define_query (JIRA:RHEL-22751)

* kernel: sched/membarrier: reduce the ability to hammer on sys_membarrier (JIRA:RHEL-26381)

Tenable has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux security advisory.

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-rt package based on the guidance in RHSA-2024:1306.
