RHEL 9 : kernel (RHSA-2024:3306)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 197723

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-2024:3306 advisory.

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

Security Fix(es):

* kernel: netfilter: nf_tables: mark set as dead when unbinding anonymous set with timeout (CVE-2024-26643)

* kernel: netfilter: nf_tables: disallow anonymous set with timeout flag (CVE-2024-26642)

* kernel: netfilter: nft_ct: sanitize layer 3 and 4 protocol number in custom expectations (CVE-2024-26673)

* kernel: net: ip_tunnel: prevent perpetual headroom growth (CVE-2024-26804)

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-2024:3306.
