F5 Networks BIG-IP : Linux kernel vulnerability (SOL16471)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 83005

Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

The do_pages_move function in mm/migrate.c in the Linux kernel before 2.6.33-rc7 does not validate node values, which allows local users to read arbitrary kernel memory locations, cause a denial of service (OOPS), and possibly have unspecified other impact by specifying a node that is not part of the kernel's node set.

Solution

Upgrade to one of the non-vulnerable versions listed in the F5 Solution SOL16471.
