Virtuozzo Advisory ID: VZA-2017-120
The cumulative Virtuozzo ReadyKernel patch was updated with security and stability fixes. The patch applies to Virtuozzo kernels 3.10.0-514.16.1.vz7.30.10 (Virtuozzo 7.0.4), 3.10.0-514.16.1.vz7.30.15 (Virtuozzo 7.0.4 HF3), 3.10.0-514.26.1.vz7.33.22 (Virtuozzo 7.0.5), and 3.10.0-693.1.1.vz7.37.30 (Virtuozzo 7.0.6).
2. Security Fixes¶
[Low] The sctp_do_peeloff() function in the Linux kernel before 4.14 did not check whether the intended netns was used in a peel-off action, which allowed local users to cause a denial of service (use-after-free in sctp_cmp_addr_exact() resulting in system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via crafted system calls. (CVE-2017-15115)
3. Bug Fixes¶
Migrating large memory ranges could take a while. With no resched points available, it caused soft lockups in isolate_lru_page(). (PSBM-79273)
Kernel warnings about memory allocation failures in vznetstat. (PSBM-79502)
