Release Date:
2021-03-01 10:49:02
  • PSBM-126136

    Virtual machines could not start in certain cases due to incorrect detection of CPU feature 'IBPB'.

  • PSBM-122990

    'Bad unlock balance' error in ipmr_mfc_seq_stop().

    It was discovered that the implementation of IPv6 multicast routing could try to access wrong data when a user tried to read certain files in /proc. An attacker could exploit that from a container to trigger 'bad unlock balance' error in ipmr_mfc_seq_stop(), followed by a kernel crash.
  • PSBM-122991

    Soft lockup in ext4_ext_find_extent().

    It was discovered that certain ioctl operations in ext4 did not check their arguments properly. An attacker could exploit that from a container to trigger soft lockups in ext4_ext_find_extent() function, which could result in a denial of service.
  • CVE-2020-29661

    Incorrect locking in TTY subsystem could lead to use-after-free conditions and cause memory corruption.

    https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/cve-2020-29661
  • PSBM-123043

    A specially crafted program running in a container could make certain processes on the host hang (denial of service).

  • PSBM-121833

    nfsd: Potential kernel crash in nfs4_put_stid().

  • PSBM-121772

    'ploop grow' operation could fail in certain cases if the ploop image file contained holes.

  • PSBM-121523

    Processes being killed by the OOM killer could continue consuming memory.

    If a process running in a container performed large allocations of kernel memory, this could hit the memory limit for the container and trigger the OOM killer. It was discovered, however, that the process being killed by it could continue consuming memory for some time. This could lead to out of memory conditions on the host.

    netfilter/ipset: excessive memory consumption leading to a denial of service.

    If was discovered that not all memory allocated for ipset-related data was properly accounted for. An attacker could exploit it from a container to consume lots of kernel memory, making the host system unusable (denial of service).
  • CVE-2020-25212

    NFS v4: potential memory corruption on the client system when processing security attributes.

    It was discovered that a buffer overflow and memory corruption were possible if a system tried to mount an NFS v4 share where the files had security labels in the file attributes. An attacker would need to control the NFS server and make it send a specific series of responses to trigger the issue. The issue allows the attacker to crash the kernel on the client system or, potentially, escalate their privileges there.

  • PSBM-106408

    nf_tables: kernel crash in nf_tables_getset().

    It was discovered that the implementation of nf_tables did not properly validate certain parameters. An attacker could exploit this from a container to cause a kernel crash: NULL pointer dereference or a general protection fault in nf_tables_getset().

  • PSBM-103518

    Slow memory allocations in nf_conntrack when a netns is created.

    When a new netns is created, high-order page allocations can happen in nf_ct_alloc_hashtable(). If memory is fragmented, such allocations can become very slow due to memory reclaim, etc. This, in turn, could result in significant slowdowns on the node.
