Kernel security update: Virtuozzo ReadyKernel patch 70.1 for Virtuozzo 7.0.6 to 7.0.7 HF3¶
Issue date: 2019-01-24
Applies to: Virtuozzo 7.0
Virtuozzo Advisory ID: VZA-2019-004
The cumulative Virtuozzo ReadyKernel patch was updated with security and stability fixes. The patch applies to Virtuozzo kernels 3.10.0-693.1.1.vz7.37.30 (7.0.6) to 3.10.0-693.21.1.vz7.48.2 (7.0.7 HF3).
2. Security Fixes¶
[Moderate] A flaw was found in the implementation of ebtables in the Linux kernel. A local attacker in a container could exploit it to consume large amounts of memory, eventually causing denial of service on the host. (PSBM-90803)
[Low] vhost: kernel crash (access out of bounds) in memcpy_fromiovecend(). (PSBM-90291)
3. Bug Fixes¶
tcache was not shrunk in some situations. (PSBM-89403)
Kernel crash (access out of bounds) in SyS_mincore(). (PSBM-90329)
If the CPUs in the system supported memory protection keys for userspace (X86_FEATURE_PKU) but the kernel did not, resuming a container could fail. (PSBM-90828)
4. Installing the Update¶
Download, install, and immediately apply the patch to the current kernel by running ‘readykernel update’.
