RHSA-2015:1137: kernel security and bug fix 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 race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel keys management subsystem performed key garbage collection. A local attacker could attempt accessing a key while it was being garbage collected, which would cause the system to crash. (CVE-2014-9529, Moderate)
* A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's 32-bit emulation implementation handled forking or closing of a task with an 'int80' entry. A local user could potentially use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2015-2830, 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 ISO9660 file system implementation accessed data on an ISO9660 image with RockRidge Extension Reference (ER) records. An attacker with physical access to the system could use this flaw to disclose up to 255 bytes of kernel memory. (CVE-2014-9584, Low)
* A flaw was found in the way the nft_flush_table() function of the Linux kernel's netfilter tables implementation flushed rules that were referencing deleted chains. A local user who has the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability could use this flaw to crash the system. (CVE-2015-1573, Low)
* An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel randomized the stack for processes on certain 64-bit architecture systems, such as x86-64, causing the stack entropy to be reduced by four. (CVE-2015-1593, Low)
Red Hat would like to thank Carl Henrik Lunde for reporting CVE-2014-9420 and CVE-2014-9584. The security impact of the CVE-2015-1805 issue was discovered by Red Hat.
This update also fixes several bugs. Documentation for these changes is available from the following Knowledgebase article: https://access.redhat.com/articles/1469163
All kernel users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. 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
