Patch  oval:com.redhat.rhsa:def:20151081
RHSA-2015:1081: kernel security, bug fix, and enhancement update (Important)  

The kernel packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system.
* It was found that the Linux kernel's implementation of vectored pipe read and write functionality did not take into account the I/O vectors that were already processed when retrying after a failed atomic access operation, potentially resulting in memory corruption due to an I/O vector array overrun. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system or, potentially, escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2015-1805, Important)
* A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Intel AES-NI instructions optimized version of the RFC4106 GCM mode decryption functionality handled fragmented packets. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash, or potentially escalate their privileges on, a system over a connection with an active AES-GCM mode IPSec security association. (CVE-2015-3331, Important)
* An information leak flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel changed certain segment registers and thread-local storage (TLS) during a context switch. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to leak the user space TLS base address of an arbitrary process. (CVE-2014-9419, Low)
* It was found that the Linux kernel's ISO file system implementation did not correctly limit the traversal of Rock Ridge extension Continuation Entries (CE). An attacker with physical access to the system could use this flaw to trigger an infinite loop in the kernel, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2014-9420, Low)
* An information leak flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's Virtual Dynamic Shared Object (vDSO) implementation performed address randomization. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to leak kernel memory addresses to user-space. (CVE-2014-9585, Low)
Red Hat would like to thank Carl Henrik Lunde for reporting CVE-2014-9420. The security impact of the CVE-2015-1805 issue was discovered by Red Hat.
This update also fixes several bugs and adds various enhancements. Documentation for these changes is available from the Technical Notes document linked to in the References section.
All kernel users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues and add these enhancements. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

Quick Help

Unknown Tests
There is a hardcoded maximum limit for number of tests displayed for a definition. For a small number of oval definitions, about ~1% of all, hundreds of test have been defined. This causes the pages to grow in size, exceed even 1mb, and they are unsuitable for display in a web page. So they are not displayed.Please refer to the xml definition files if you really want to view them.
evr_string datatype
Represents epoch, version, and release number as a single version string
