Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.71429
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2012:1064
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2012:1064.

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

This update fixes the following security issues:

* A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the nf_ct_frag6_reasm()
function in the Linux kernel's netfilter IPv6 connection tracking
implementation. A remote attacker could use this flaw to send
specially-crafted packets to a target system that is using IPv6 and also
has the nf_conntrack_ipv6 kernel module loaded, causing it to crash.
(CVE-2012-2744, Important)

* A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's key management facility
handled replacement session keyrings on process forks. A local,
unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service.
(CVE-2012-2745, Moderate)

Red Hat would like to thank an anonymous contributor working with the
Beyond Security SecuriTeam Secure Disclosure program for reporting
CVE-2012-2744.

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported
patches to correct these issues. The system must be rebooted for this
update to take effect.
