Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for kernel RHSA-2012:1304-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'kernel'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'kernel'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

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

This update fixes the following security issues:

* An integer overflow flaw was found in the i915_gem_do_execbuffer()
function in the Intel i915 driver in the Linux kernel. A local,
unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service. This
issue only affected 32-bit systems. (CVE-2012-2384, Moderate)

* A memory leak flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel's memory
subsystem handled resource clean up in the mmap() failure path when the
MAP_HUGETLB flag was set. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to
cause a denial of service. (CVE-2012-2390, Moderate)

Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported
patches to correct these issues, and fix the bugs noted in the Technical
Notes. The system must be rebooted for this update to take effect.

Affected Software/OS:
kernel on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Solution:
Please Install the Updated Packages.
