RHSA-2016:1301: kernel-rt security, bug fix, and enhancement update (Important)  

The kernel-rt packages contain the Linux kernel, the core of any Linux operating system.
The following packages have been upgraded to a newer upstream version: kernel-rt (3.10.0-327.22.1). This version provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements, including:
* [netdrv] ixgbevf: fix spoofed packets with random MAC and use ether_addr_copy instead of memcpy * [mm] mmu_notifier: fix memory corruption * [mm] hugetlbfs: optimize when NUMA=n * [mm] optimize put_mems_allowed() usage * [x86] mm: suitable memory should go to ZONE_MOVABLE * [fs] xfs: fix splice/direct-IO deadlock * [acpi] tables: Add acpi_subtable_proc to ACPI table parsers * [acpi] table: Add new function to get table entries * [net] ipv6: Nonlocal bind * [net] ipv4: bind ip_nonlocal_bind to current netns
(BZ#1335747)
Security Fix(es):
* A flaw was found in the way certain interfaces of the Linux kernel's Infiniband subsystem used write() as bi-directional ioctl() replacement, which could lead to insufficient memory security checks when being invoked using the the splice() system call. A local unprivileged user on a system with either Infiniband hardware present or RDMA Userspace Connection Manager Access module explicitly loaded, could use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2016-4565, Important)
* A race condition flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's SCTP implementation handled sctp_accept() during the processing of heartbeat timeout events. A remote attacker could use this flaw to prevent further connections to be accepted by the SCTP server running on the system, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2015-8767, Moderate)
* A flaw was found in the way the realtime kernel processed specially crafted ICMP echo requests. A remote attacker could use this flaw to trigger a sysrql function based on values in the ICMP packet, allowing them to remotely restart the system. Note that this feature is not enabled by default and requires elevated privileges to be configured. (CVE-2016-3707, Moderate)
Red Hat would like to thank Jann Horn for reporting CVE-2016-4565.
Bug Fix(es):
* Previously, configuration changes to the Hewlett Packard Smart Array (HPSA) driver during I/O operations could set the phys_disk pointer to NULL. Consequently, kernel oops could occur while the HPSA driver was submitting ioaccel2 commands. An upstream patch has been provided to fix this bug, and the oops in the hpsa_scsi_ioaccel_raid_map() function no longer occurs. (BZ#1335411)
* In a previous code update one extra spin_lock operation was left untouched. Consequently, a deadlock could occur when looping through cache pages. With this update, the extra lock operation has been removed from the source code and the deadlock no longer occurs in the described situation. (BZ#1327073)

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.
