RHEL 9 : kernel (RHSA-2024:1248)

high Nessus Plugin ID 194440

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 9 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the RHSA-2024:1248 advisory.

The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system.

Security Fix(es):

* kernel: inactive elements in nft_pipapo_walk (CVE-2023-6817)

* kernel: netfilter: use-after-free in nft_trans_gc_catchall_sync leads to privilege escalation (CVE-2024-0193)

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

* kernel: Use-after-free in nft_verdict_dump due to a race between set GC and transaction (CVE-2023-4244)

* kernel: 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)

* kernel: NULL pointer dereference in nvmet_tcp_build_iovec (CVE-2023-6356)

* kernel: NULL pointer dereference in nvmet_tcp_execute_request (CVE-2023-6535)

* kernel: NULL pointer dereference in __nvmet_req_complete (CVE-2023-6536)

* kernel: Out-Of-Bounds Read vulnerability in smbCalcSize (CVE-2023-6606)

* kernel: OOB Access in smb2_dump_detail (CVE-2023-6610)

* kernel: use-after-free in amdgpu_cs_wait_all_fences in drivers/gpu/drm/amd/amdgpu/amdgpu_cs.c (CVE-2023-51042)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in the References section.

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 package based on the guidance in RHSA-2024:1248.
