Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2013:1490 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Important: kernel-rt security and bug fix update 2013-10-31 20:23:39 UTC

Description Prasad J Pandit 2013-09-13 08:53:05 UTC
Linux kernel built with the Universal TUN/TAP device driver(CONFIG_TUN) support
is vulnerable to a potential privilege escalation via an use-after-free flaw.
It could occur while doing an ioctl(TUNSETIFF) call.

A privileged(CAP_NET_ADMIN) user/program could use this flaw to crash the
kernel resulting DoS or potentially escalate privileges to gain root access
to a system.
